Nightly Routine for a Productive Morning



As a student, part-time employee and a mom of a Kindergartener my days are quite busy. It seems there are never enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished. Often times I wonder how I will get everything done, but by the grace of God it gets done. I have found that if I have a nightly routine then my mornings tend to be more productive; which makes for a smoother day and a happier me.

Chicken & Bacon Quesadillas




I love Mexican food, I really do! It's one of my favorite types of food. If I could afford to dine out at a Mexican restaurant a few times a week, I definitely would. However, that's just not possible when you're on a budget. So I make my own Mexican Cuisines. I love being creative in the kitchen and making my own recipes. I'm loving these Chicken & Bacon Quesadillas. They are super easy to make and very affordable. I'm sure you will love them too!

Summer Vintage Boho Style


* This post contains affiliate links, however, all words and opinions are my own.

I have a confession to make. I used to not care for the Boho-Chic Style. I never cared for the free and flowy fabrics, but now it's all I want to wear. I guess when you get to a certain age and especially when you become a mom; you want styles that are great for comfort and coverage. My absolute favorite style that I have worn this year has to be without a doubt this Summer Vintage Boho Style.

A Moment In Time: Summer Time Capsule

Raylan and I have planned on doing a Time Capsule all summer long. I've pondered on what all he could put in the capsule, how he could do the capsule, and how he could properly store it until the time for him to open it. After much thought and consideration, we finally got around to doing the Time Capsule.

10 Tips I've learned After 10 Years of Marriage



Today makes 10 Years that Justin and I have been married. On July 18, 2009 I walked down the aisle to my happily ever after. Altogether, Justin and I have been together for 15 years. We dated 5 years before saying I do. Yes, we were high school sweethearts. In a world with a high divorce rate, I'm so thankful that Justin and I have stayed married for as long as we have. Marriage hasn't always been a bed of roses. Sometimes it has been just plain hard, but it has always been worth it. God has truly blessed us and our beautiful little family. Here are 10 Tips I've learned After 10 Years of Marriage.

What I Love Most About Small Town Living



I’ve lived in the hills of Eastern, Ky my whole life. Yes, I actually do live back in a hollow located in Inez, Ky. A lot of people look down on small town living, but not me. I love where I live! It’s a quaint little town with only 2 stop lights and the nearest Walmart is 30 minutes away. There isn’t a whole lot to do in our tiny town. However, we have a few amazing restaurants, a community center with a movie theater, a small lake, a few parks, some breathtaking views especially when you’re hiking, a top notch library, an airport and several small businesses. In Inez, you will also find churches on almost every corner.  Where we live is mostly one or two lane roads. Everyone waves when they pass you on the road. It's a friendly little town, and almost everyone knows each other. But none of this is What I love Most About Small Town Living.

Blessed 4th of July Outfit


When I think of the 4th of July, I realize how Blessed we are. We are blessed to live in a free nation where we can freely serve our Lord and Savior. We are blessed to be able to come and go as we please.  We have freedom because of our brave soldiers. We have independence and we simply are a blessed nation.

Toy Rescue Ice Block Activity


This Kentucky heat has been no joke this week. It has been so humid and absolutely miserable. We have been swimming, playing with water guns, and finding other ways to beat the heat. We decided to try a different way to keep cool, and Raylan approved. We tried a Toy Rescue Ice Block Activity.

Why I Sent My Son To Preschool (Even When People Told Me Not To)



Our Son Raylan just finished his first year of a Headstart preschool program. He will be going to Kindergarten when school starts back in the Fall. I had always known beforehand that I wanted to enroll him in an early childhood education program, but a lot of people felt differently about my decision.

4 Ways To Use Technology To Benefit Your Christian Faith

*This post contains affiliate links






As Christians, many of us are more than a little averse to technology. We fear the effect it can have on us in relation to our faith, and we can warn others, including our children and those we fellowship with on the dangers technology can pose.

For example, we might be mindful of the way social media can eat into our prayer times. And we might show concern when our children spend more time playing video games than reading the Bible. And while these are valid concerns - we do need to spend more time in prayer than reading through our Facebook posts, and our children do need to read the Bible a little more - we should also consider the benefits of technology to our faith.

Consider the following examples.

Tickle Your Tastebuds With Dishes From Around The World

But if you haven't really experimented yet, maybe because you haven't travelled much to experience the fine foods out there, or perhaps you just think they're too advanced to cook, we're going to try to change that for you. Thus articles main aim is going to be to show you how you can easily cook some of the most amazing culinary dishes from around the world, and open your taste buds up to those flavours the dishes bring. So keep on reading, and see if you'd like to try any of these!

How Do You Send Someone A Personal Message?

*This post contains affiliate links

Dig into your pocket and no doubt you will find a smartphone. It can send SMS text, emails, social media posts and messages and none of them seem quite that personal. But does personal messaging really matter in the old fashioned way? Why would anyone go through the trouble of making a personal message from scratch using their own hands and ingenuity? Well even in this day and age there are situations and times when you should be sending something heartfelt and meaningful to someone you really care about. Pixels on a screen don’t cut the mustard when it comes to making a long lasting impression on someone when you have sent them an important message about a subject that really strikes to the core. So how do you go about it?

Campfire Nachos


It's grill season and our grilling has been going full force for a while now. I love grilled food, I really do! I also love switching things up for dinner when it comes to grilling out. There really isn't much that you can't make on the grill. My family has found a new dinner favorite. These Campfire Nachos are absolutely delicious, and I think you will love them as much as we do.

Most Fashionable Celebrities And Celebrity Kids

Celebrities are always the first to get their hands on the latest designer clothing. They are then pictured in all of their gorgeous outfits in order to make up the main pages of the fashion magazines. Thus, there is no doubt that they have a lot of influence on the clothes we all wear today and the trends that we like. Nevertheless, there are some celebrities who have a greater impact on women’s fashion trends than others, and these celebrities are as follows…

Pink Boho Dress for Summer


Summer Break is officially here, and we are making the most of it. Raylan and I already have our Bucket Lists made and we are ready to enjoy the summer. In fact, we have already started crossing some things off of our lists. With lots of fun things planned, I have to be stylish while beating the heat. So, this is exactly why I'm loving this Pink Boho Dress for Summer. 

Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza


There is nothing that I love better than grilled food during the warmer months. You will typically find me behind the grill almost everyday. It gets too hot to use the oven, so I fire up the grill to keep my house cool inside. I love the traditional grilled foods such as steaks, burgers and hot dogs. However, eating the same foods can get old fast. So, I like to switch things up and be creative with my recipes. One of our very favorites is this delicious Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza Recipe.

Budgeting for Newlyweds



*This post contains affiliate links


Getting married is an exciting time, but it does come with a big share of responsibility. The wedding alone can take months or years to plan, and then you and your spouse are just getting started!


One of the biggest challenges every newlywed couple needs to tackle is the topic of how to combine finances and budget together. While talking about money can be a sensitive subject, it’s also a huge factor in the success of your marriage.

Faith Based Monthly Tee


I love a good tee to wear, especially during the warmer months. My favorite tees to wear are faith based tees. I love being able to spread the good news about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through fashion. It's a great way to make a statement and spread the gospel because everyone sees what you wear. So when I saw this month's advertisement for a Faith Monthly Tee, I was hooked and knew I had to subscribe.
