DIY Minecraft Birthday Party

Our Twins turned eight years old this year and like 98% of other eight year old boys in this country, they insisted on having a Minecraft Birthday Party.   Unfortunately, Minecraft Birthday Supplies do NOT exist in the party stores.  I don’t know why this is…it seems to me that it would be a marketing […]

Life Changing

Would you sell off most everything you own and move into an RV with your family?  That is the conversation that has been happening in my household for a few weeks now.  I am SO flipping excited at the prospect of simplifying my life (getting rid of 1600 sqft of crap clutter), packing up and […]

Happy New Year!

Yea, I realize that January is almost over, get over it. I’ve had this post in my queue for weeks.  I’ve rewritten it 4-5 times.   It started out as a Paleo post, then an “embrace the fat girl” post and then a “I’m trying essential oils” post.  I know, I’m a freak.  I can’t help […]
