Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh Bold Italian Turkey Pita with Red Pepper Hummus

Lunchtime is always a struggle for me. As a homeschooling family, we spend most of our lunchtimes at home, and lately we’ve had our fill of PBJ and deli sandwiches.

Oscar Mayer must have been reading my mind because they just added four new flavors to their Deli Fresh Bold line that {Read More}

With the recent passing of my grandpa, I have felt especially close to my Savior, Jesus Christ. I have felt His love enter my heart and give me comfort as I grieve. I am so glad to know that He lives!    DOWNLOAD  {Frame {Read More}

Spiralized Zucchini Noodle Stir Fry with Chicken & Cashews

Spirazlied Zucchini Noodle Stir Fry with Chicken and Cashews via Happiness is Homemade

I don’t commit myself to one type of diet – paleo, gluten free, Whole 30, clean eating, Atkins, blood type diet – who can keep track of it all? I absolutely believe that for certain people there are valid reasons for following these diets, but for me, I’d rather stick to foods that I know are high in nutritional value and worry less about what a diet guideline says I can or can’t eat. In an effort to slim down {Read More}

The Most Versatile Way to Fix the Future

Sugru fixed our Minecraft sword

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of sugru. A few weeks ago I received a package of sugru self-setting rubber, and I was immediately drawn to their tagline: The Future Needs Fixing. The idea that we can repair  our broken items to reduce waste and save money is incredibly appealing to this environmentally conscious and budget minded mom. I wasn’t sure exactly what I was going to do with my sugru, so I spent a few {Read More}

Spring Reading Incentive Chart

Coffee Filter Flowers on Spring Reading Chart

When the weather turns nice and warm in springtime, my boys like to spend all of their time playing outside, and quiet reading sessions often get neglected and forgotten about until bedtime (when my oldest is “too tired” to read to himself).

These are just {Read More}

Vintage Eclectic Home Style Inspiration at Sauder

Vintage Inspired Guest Room Interior Design Idea Board

We’ve been busy working on some home renovations lately, and I’ve been daydreaming about all of the possibilities for decorating our space. We started our renovations by transforming our formal dining room into a homeschool room, and we built a custom DIY farmhouse table and bench to serve as our school work table. I had visions of the perfect set of chairs to go opposite the bench seat (those ones you see in the photo above were borrowed from our {Read More}

Printable Food Journal with Facts Up Front

Free Printable Food Journal for Tracking Calories Fat Protein Carbs and More

As part of our homeschool health and nutrition unit, we have been studying the ways in which food affects your body. I put together a printable food journal to track our daily intake of calories, fat, carbohydrates and protein, and we have been studying how these different components of food are processed by our bodies. My boys have learned how to read a nutrition label to find the information that they need to complete their food journals, and one of {Read More}
