Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers

New Year’s Resolution One (Cook more often) plus New Year’s Resolution Two (Have more sit-down family dinners) divided by New Year’s Resolution Three (Do little pieces of house work each night so a whole Saturday doesn’t get wasted with chores) equals SLOW COOKER MEALS FOR DAYS! With a solid arsenal of slow-cooker recipes, my time in the evening isn’t spent fumbling around in the kitchen with a toddler pulling on my pants. Instead we’re in the master bedroom. Folding clothes. Makes a world of difference!

RocksBox is Perfect for a Mom On-The-Go

As you all know, I’m a new mom the mother of a toddler (can’t claim the new mom excuse anymore!) Life is chaotic. Gone are the days when I used to spend 598,462,345 hours picking the perfect outfit to totally nail the “Stars: They’re just like us” look of a celebrity running errands in a magazine.

 

Mornings at my house

Now, life looks a little more like a scene from Hunger Games in the morning: Shower — if I’m lucky. Get dressed. Does this go together? (Doesn’t matter. If it’s not covered in food/dog hair/milk/snot, it’s fine.) Brush my teeth. Feed the dogs. What’s the weather going to be today? Get the kid dressed. Feed the kid. Clean the spots on the floor where she politely threw her cup to let me know she “just can’t” with milk today. Make coffee. Wait – Did I brush my teeth? Where are my go-to comfortable boots? Let the dogs out. Where. Is. The. F-ing. Coffee. Get myself, the kiddo, my purse, her bag, my lunch, her lunch, and my gym bag (Ha, It’s important to dream big, folks) in the car. Ok… Where are my keys?

I think you get the point.

 

 

Rocksbox to the style rescue!

Holiday Cards with Minted

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the place, families were scrambling to keep up the pace.

Two Christmas cards were already here, but we haven’t started our holiday cheer.

I found a solution, the panic relented. This year, we’ll order our cards from Minted!

Okay. Enough rhyming. Let’s get down to it.  Ordering our holiday cards was a cinch this year thanks to Minted. With their variety of unique designs from a community of independent artists, the hardest part was picking which beauty we would use.

A Very Minnie Christmas: Character Chair from Delta Children is the perfect gift

It’s that time of year again: Time to shop ‘til you drop for your parents, friends, the coworker who loves cat calendars that you unfortunately drew in your office Secret Santa, teachers, and obviously your kids. It’s a lot, I know. Before you curl up under a cozy blanket and hope no one sees you until January, may I suggest Target? Put on your elastic pants of choice (yoga pants or leggings, in my case), put your hair in a topknot, grab a Starbucks, and go to Target…. online that is! That’s basically what you do every day anyway, right? You got this. #momlife

Currently Craving: Plaid.

Along with white chicken chili, as soon as the first chill is in the air I want to full-on drape myself in plaid a la George Costanza. I can’t help it. I compiled a list of things that I would love to add to my wardrobe and my house… and most of them are reallyyyyy affordable.
