Hey guys, hope you're all surviving thorough this whole COVID social distancing thing! We have always cooked at home, but now because we really aren't eating out at all, I figured why not share some of my favorite recipes with you?
To be perfectly honest I hate when you find a recipe you might want to try, but then it takes forever to scroll through the elaborately written post - props to you all for your writing abilities though! I just want to see if I have the ingredients and if I can make it easily, so here is my simple recipe for you all that I adapted to make more our style.

How to throw the best birthday party ever.
Okay let’s be real, The Office is one of our all time favorite shows, and since the 1st birthday party is realllly about the parents surviving the first year, naturally we made it about ourselves.
I’m not lying when I say we are ridiculously huge fans, if you ask any of our friends it’s generally on as background noise when they come over and we cycle through the series constantly. When I was on maternity leave Stevie learned to recognize the theme song and would turn and smile when she heard it. I know, we have a problem.
Here is my list of the must haves for your office party - and don’t be like us and forget the jello!
Hey guys, I’m talking teeth again over here on the blog because let’s be honest, when someone is talking to me that’s the first place my eyes go. Teeth health is so important, we only have one set and if you don’t take care of them, it’s not only costly but can also be painful! Last time I told you guys all about my experience with Smile Brilliant teeth whitener (still using because it’s amazing!), but this time we are talking toothbrushes.
Raise your hand if you were the person that just kept buying the disposable electric toothbrushes *slowly raises hand*. Ok let’s be real, yes it’s good that they were electric and helped with the brushing process, but also super wasteful and not really the best quality.
I switched over to a well known brand of electric toothbrush which I love, but let me tell you how awesome the Smile Brilliant cariPRO is compared to it!
It’s national coffee day so I decided to tell y’all about my favorite coffee shops! Don’t get me wrong, I’ll stop at Starbucks and Dunkin’ when that’s what is around but I much prefer going to a small shop if possible —the coffee is always better!!
I love a small shop, especially with the right atmosphere so I’m going to give you my top 3:
Well I'm officially 30 so I decided to post 30 random things about me!
I don’t know about you but I’m a pretty solid sale shopper. I rarely buy anything full price because that’s how my momma raised me. It’s the time of year where Hobby Lobby starts their clearance sale where eventually it gets up to 80-90% off. I decided to stop by today and see what they had in hopes of finding some cute stuff for Stevie’s nursery...I know, I know, she’s 8 months old and I still haven’t decorated it, I’m just not “that mom”.
Disclosure: I received this product complimentary for testing purposes for an exchange for an honest review.
Let me start by saying I’m an avid coffee and soda drinker so I was a little skeptical of how effective this product would be. I’ve used other at home whitening products that promise great results - like the expensive toothpaste, whitening strips, and charcoal powder, yet saw little changes that made me really commit to the product.
As I’ve gotten older my gums have gotten more sensitive so I prefer a product that won’t cause my gums to feel like they’re bleeding (if you have sensitive gums, you know what I mean!). That’s one of the main factors that got me interested in trying Smile Brilliant, after you whiten each time, they have a desensitizing gel to use.
When I first opened the kit it was neatly arranged with all the materials to make your own tray along with the whitening and desensitizing gel. The instructions were step by step and very easy to follow with guides for each part. I was a little worried about my molds but they really go above and beyond by giving you extra material and they also give you the option to send in a picture of your mold to get double checked if you’re worried.
Let’s be real, if you haven’t already started planning your Black Friday shopping, you’re late to the game. I started shopping last week because there were pre-black Friday sales I just couldn’t pass up. Black Friday shopping has been a tradition I started with my mom years ago. We would go through the ads and decide where the best deals were. This was back when deals started at 5am on Friday, not on thanksgiving. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve gone out a few times on Thursday night, but not until 10pm after all the Thanksgiving festivities were done. Now with the baby I’m planning on doing all my shopping online, because let’s be real, no way would I want to take this little one in all the craziness shopping.

Since sleep is lacking for me I figured I could use all the random hours I’m up to start putting her birth into words. Like a lot of people, my birth plan didn’t go as expected but in the end we had to do what was best for our baby girl.
