JORD Wood Watches graciously provided me with the Cora Series Zebrawood & Turquoise watch. All opinions are my own. 

At least once a month I try to get out and go shopping with my mom. Most of the time the kids and my dad come along. Then my dad takes the boys to the play areas so we can shop with a little more ease than usual (and grandpa gets his time with the boys). It’s nice to have that time with my mom. And for the last year or so, I have been slowly trying to expand my accessories and clothing options.

Boys. I’m outnumbered just about every day by boys. Before I knew I was going to have three kids, I never thought I’d be the only girl in the house (besides the dog). Most of my family members outside of the home are also males. Since I work from home, I don’t have co-workers to interact with face-to-face each day. So there aren’t many times I get to have ‘girly’ moments.

When it comes to the cold & flu season, this winter has been a rough one. Actually, rough is putting it mildly. Up until this year, we were pretty fortunate. The kids barely got sick and we had few visits to the doctor’s office. So what changed?

Here in the wonderful Midwest, it’s been cold, snowy, and just plain dreary. I can’t express enough how much I am ready for warmer weather. I could really use a vacation to a beach, but I will settle with flip-flop weather here.

Three of my favorite snack foods: chocolate, crackers, and fruits. I love pairing sweet and salty all into one bite or treat. I try not to keep too many chocolates around the house, because they don’t last long. However, I do keep chocolate wafers to use for treats and I always have plenty of fruit and cracker varieties.

More recently than before, I have been struggling with getting dinner on the table. I have had a hard time managing my time around the house and preparing for it. For that reason I am always in need of quick and easy meals that take less than thirty minutes and have few ingredients. Meals that allow me to use products I keep in on hand.
