Menu Plan: Oct 1-7

Today I'm sharing our family's menu plan for the week ahead. I love when I can start a new week with the meals planned, grocery shopping done and some food prep accomplished. After church today, we went grocery shopping and then during the boys' nap/quiet time, I was able to get three meals prepped for… Continue reading Menu Plan: Oct 1-7

Little Man Fall Capsule Wardrobe

Have you heard everyone raving about capsule wardrobes? I'll admit the whole capsule wardrobe concept was only introduced to me about a year or so ago. When I heard about capsule wardrobes the focus on minimalism and functionality really spoke to me.

5 Reasons I (don’t) Love My Period

I have to admit that I’m a complete mess one week out of every month. Not a hot mess - there is nothing hot about me when I’m on my period. Just a train wreck of a mess. I’m no mathematician, but I’m pretty sure that means I am a complete disaster for one QUARTER… Continue reading 5 Reasons I (don’t) Love My Period

Are Your Kids Back to School Now? Everson started Pre-K today. He is in our school's Spanish immersion program this year and he excitedly reported to me that he learned how to say "hola" and "rojo"...the two Spanish words he already knew ;-).

Making Mom Friends 101

Can I be your friend?"  Making friends came pretty naturally to me when I was a young, outgoing little kid. My strategy was simple and straight to the point. I'd say, "Hi, I'm Peggy. Want to be my friend?" Usually that worked. Friendliness + confidence + a desire to connect = friendship. It was a simple… Continue reading Making Mom Friends 101
