20 Toddler Outfits Prepped in 30 minutes

I am  sucker for prepping. Anything I can prep ahead of time I do. This comes partially from my type A personality and partially from being a single mom to two babies for a  year while the military took hubby away. That year taught me a lot about myself and ways to organize my life to make everything easier. One big thing for me was kids clothes, more specifically for my daughter, since my son is just a shirt and jeans. Its amazing to me how much clothes little girls have (thanks to Grammies and aunties) its just all so…

My Experiance with Le Tote

Like many of you I have been seeing Le Tote every where lately, and I finally decided to give it a shot. What drew my attention to this service over others was the option to pick my own pieces to be sent to me. I have tried Stich Fix before and that was my one sticking point. I loved the idea of a stylist picking  for me but I have a pretty specific style and some times the stylist got it, other times they didn’t, and when they did they sent me clothes that were to expensive for…

4 Steps of Goal Setting to Design Your Life

Its that time of year. The time to make resolutions, goals, and to think about your years past and the year to come. Reflecting on choices made and how you would like to focus your year is a brilliant idea. Personally I am a planning addict. I love my Living Well planner, To Do lists, and thinking about goals and life mottos. My husband often tells me how like “Monica” I am. (get the FRIENDS reference there?) While I love my short term goals and focused to do lists to get me through the week or weekend with…

Pre-Scouting: Tips and Tricks for Scouting Your Hunt

My house is full of love, people, animals, and mounts. Oh yes the mounts. We have four adults who all hunt living in this home and the beautiful reminders of the memories, work, and food supplied during those trips all over our home. Since this blog is also about our hunting adventures (and mine have been few and far between since my marathon 4 years of making, birthing, and keeping babies alive) I recruited my husband to help others who may be new to this on the best way to scout for a hunt. These tips are based on his…

Finish the Year Strong

The holidays are upon us. Halloweens candy filled sugar craze is over. The biggest feasting day of the year just came to a close. Christmas cookies, holiday parties, office treats, and Christmas dinner are here. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be a statistic. The statistic that people gain 5 lbs every year during the holiday season, that they never loose. Not good! My plan to combat all this is not to forgo the yummy treats… but to eat in small portion sizes and work out. HARD!   Figuring out the…

Why wait for your new years resolution?

We have 2 weeks until the New Year is upon us. Most of these two weeks will be filled with food, family, parties, Christmas lights, and sweets, so many sweets. The mindset of many is just to wait until Jan 1, to set a goal and tackle it after the holidays are over. But why wait? Why let the sweets and treats and holiday party food build up in your system and around your waist line?  Why not start now with a plan to help off set the holiday cheer and put yourself in an even better position come Jan…

Rustic Wedding, Arizona in May

My dad recently got remarried and enlisted me to help plan/decorate/coordinate the big day. It was both their second marriages so they decided to keep it casual and super personal. They both love hunting, dancing, and being outdoors. So they kept the cost low by having it in their backyard and building their own dance floor, having friends help with food, and having a very DIY approach to decorating. Invitations  They loved the idea of two deer, to represent them, on the invites. So after some google searching and some sweet Word skills, I managed to get these…

Stitch Fix Review #1-Fall Box

I have a love hate relationship with shopping. Some days I find great finds, everything fits, and I love it. Other days, I try on a million things, nothing fits and everything I like cost a lot of money. While I am trying to adjust to a more “adult” wardrobe of quality items, I still have a hard time swallowing $50 for a top. Or as things seem to go more… I mean $70 for a top? Ok crazy, that’s what a month worth of diapers and wipes cost for my littlest baby. We have…
