Social Media Fast

With all that is currently unknown here on earth, I’m feeling called to set my eyes on Christ above. I’ve been a little unsure what that looks like, but lately God has spoken to me through the Word, my pastor, and friends. It’s time for a social media fast. I’ve been taking baby…

DIY Donut Cake

We’ve got a serious donut and “sprinkler” obsession going on in our house right now.  Which, luckily, made it fairly easy when it came to picking a theme for Gracie’s 3rd birthday.  After scouring Pinterest, I decided that I had to at least try to make her a donut shaped cake for the…

Daily Habits for Keeping a Clean Home!

With Baby #2 on the way and my energy sufficiently returned, I’ve been in MAJOR nesting mode.  I’ve literally been tearing the house apart, which made me think that I should probably put all of this cleaning to good use (besides the satisfaction of a clean and organized house) and create a series…

Cream of Carrot Soup

Happy Homemade Soup Day!  Because apparently that’s a thing.  Who knew?  And it just so happened that earlier this week, my mom stumbled upon a recipe that we had been trying to find for more than 15 years. Despite the fact that we are moving to our new house in three days and…

DIY Meal Planner

The new year usually means new resolutions, especially in regards to our health.  We all know that I’m not the workout girl, but the food girl.  So instead of encouraging you to hit the gym, I figured I should give you some insight into my meal planning system.  Planning your meals for the week…

DIY Makeup Organizer

We in the Youtube beauty community make it seem like you’re not organized unless you’ve got a whole room full of Ikea drawers dedicated to your collection.  The average woman just does not have or need that much makeup, but she still needs to be organized.  This basket allows me to organize all of my…

Perfect Smores Brownies!

I mean, are there really any words for a dessert this good?  I’m thinking not.  This is a family favorite, and it’s semi-homemade which means it’s both kid and mom approved.  I created this recipe as part of the Perfect Summer Picnic Collaboration with a few of my fellow Kin Community creators.  Be sure…
