A Food Processor for a Family- A Review

A Food Processor for a Family- A Review

Finding a food processor up to the task of prepping food for a family of 6 is tough.  Especially when you also need it to be affordable (And by affordable, I mean cheap!).  Everything seems to be either too small (6 cups, really?) or over $100.  Or gets crappy reviews. After multiple google searches and a few hours reading reviews, I took the plunge and ordered this one (or, rather, sent my mom the link a few weeks before my…

How Whole30 Got Me Out of a Funk (and Led to New Family Photos)

How Whole30 Got Me Out of a Funk (and Led to New Family Photos)

My husband has wanted family photos for a very long time.  Honestly, I have too.  It’s been 4 years and 2 kids since our last family photo.  As a scrapbooker, a good family photo is a must.  So why has it been so long since we got a photo?  Well, mostly because I haven’t felt all that great over the last few years.  I haven’t been sick or anything.  But I haven’t slept all night through in years.  My energy…

My Top 5 Board Games for Ages 7-11 (and Their Families)

Somewhere around the time that my oldest reached age 7, my husband and I overdosed on Candyland.  It was a horrible experience.  The shakes, night terrors, knee-jerk reactions to anything brightly colored or gingerbread-man-shaped…  awful, I tell you.  And, we still had a 5-year-old that liked the game.  It was a scene straight from every parent’s worst board games nightmare. How did we recover?  Well, my friends, first we had a bonfire.  Just kidding.  Kind of.  I may have dreamed…

A Busy Mom’s Review of Spot Shot Carpet Cleaner

My search for a carpet cleaner that really works has been long.  And frustrating.  I have made my own, using several different recipes.  I have purchased several different brands.  Nothing. Until I found my new best friend (if friends came in aerosol cans).  Meet Spot Shot Carpet Cleaner.     Before I jump into the review, I have a confession to make.  I caused this particular stain, by spilling coffee after tripping on a toy.  Several weeks ago.   Ahem….

5 of the Best Board Games for Older Kids and Teens

This post contains affiliate links.  For more information on this, please read my disclosures. Family time is definitely a priority in our house.  One of our key family time strategies has always been board games.  They’re (nearly) free, you can play in summer or winter, and friends can be easily added to the fun when they are over. When we had toddlers, the options were obvious (Candyland, anyone?).  As the kids get older though, we’ve had to adapt, change, and…
