up & up Cleansing Towelettes #FTW!

up & up Cleansing Towelettes #FTW!

I’m pretty lazy when it comes to personal hygiene. There. I said it. And on the internet, no less… It’s the truth. Oh, I keep myself clean on a daily basis, for sure. But I hate the whole process of taking care of myself. Washing my face, brushing my teeth, washing my hair… There are just so many other things I’d rather be doing. But, alas, Chris continues to INSIST I bathe, so here I am. Because of this lack of interest in personal care, I like to cut corners…

Keeping My House on the Up and Up

Keeping My House on the Up and Up

When Target asked if I would be interested in reviewing a few of their up & up brand products, I had to try my very professional best not to sarcastically shout, “WELL, I GUESSSSSSS SO…”  My love affair with Target has been well documented over the years, but perhaps the most dramatic representation of my relationship with Target was when I dropped Gracie at daycare one day last year and she cried when I left saying, “BUT I WANT TO GO SHOPPING AT TAHGET!” I have trained that girl well….

Basic Meal Planning

Basic Meal Planning

Occasionally, I post pictures of various parts of my meal planning process on Instagram.  Inevitably, I get people who want to know more about my meal planning process.  I’m always hesitant to blog about meal planning because I’m afraid what I do might not be complicated enough to really be considered “meal planning.”  The phrase alone sounds like you need some kind of healthcare or nutrition degree to put one together.  But I do consider what I do to be meal planning, and it does save our family money and…

Review: Sonia K. Makes My Feet Happy!

Yaíll. I couldnít be more excited about the review I am doing today. First, I was excited because it was for… (wait for it, wait for it, wait for it)… TARGET! It’s like the mother ship has called me home! I am probably the most frequent Target shopper ever. I do my grocery shopping there, my birthday present shopping there, my clothes shopping there, my kids shopping there. I’m there a LOT. So, I was pretty stoked to be doing a review for Target in the first place. But then…

Help You to Death

Help You to Death

I have a really great husband. He’s involved in our home life, prioritizes our family above all else, and, above all, he loves me. A LOT. I am a lucky, lucky girl. Which is why I hesitate to complain about this one, small, insignificant issue… On Sunday afternoons, Chris drives me absolutely insane. INSANE, people! It hasn’t always been this way. We used to enjoy Sunday afternoons together. But in the past couple months, those days have gone out the window. Why? Well, it began with a Target RedCard. I…

Fun Friday Finds

Fun Friday Finds

I am a loyal consumer. Once I find something I like, I rarely stray from it and I sing it’s praises to anyone who will listen. Which is what I’m doing today.  Because it’s Friday.  And because I’m out of blog fodder for the week. FUN FRIDAY FINDS THAT I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT: My favorite black cardigan from Target – I love this cardigan. The fabric is actually paper thin, which is nice for me because I’m usually burning up every minute of every day. But with my lovely, round…
