Seeking Sleep: Ways to Sleep Better and Longer

Lifestyle

I’m famous for being able to sleep anywhere. My husband loves to tell the story of how we went to this little bar in Ocean City, Maryland to see Jimmy’s Chicken Shack play and I fell asleep sitting up at a bar right on the edge of the stage, head propped up with my hand, right in the face of the guitarist and sitting right next to the mom of…

Life After Quitting: One Month Recap

Blogging

Last weekend I wrote a long post about my one-month anniversary for quitting my day job and blogging full time and my blog ate it. I was in Texas, it was 11pm (so really midnight back home) and my dashboard (the backend of my blog) seemed to go back in time several days. Posts I wrote were gone, draft posts lacked the photos and content I so painstakingly wrote and…

Lifestyle

This post is sponsored by Samsung. Thank you Samsung for this opportunity! When I found out I was pregnant, I got pretty “back to basics” with a lot of our lifestyle.

We swore we’d never be “those parents” who “had a tablet babysit their children.”…

Christmas Early: Upgrading to an Air Fryer

House and Home Lifestyle

About a decade ago I bought us a toaster oven on Overstock. It was $35 and was awesome for cooking for the two of us without heating up the whole house with the oven.
