Anyone Here??

Hello everyone!!

I am so sorry that I have not been around here in some time. Life has kept me busy. Here lately, life has been busier than I would have ever imagined. I am hoping to try to post here at least once a week. If I get one post a month, then I’ll take it.

I hope you all have done well since I last posted. I will eventually get into exactly why life has been a total buzz lately, but it might be a bit. That post will be a bit of a meaty subject.

Until next time!


Cooking Bacon

I have recently found such an easier way to cooking bacon. Most of the time, I have put it in a skillet and let it cook until desired like-ness.

Now I cook the bacon in the oven. I place a piece of aluminum foil on a cookie sheet. Place all desired amount of bacon on sheet. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Cook for 12-14 minutes.

I have noticed that the bacon you get from the store will cook well at the previous degrees, but if you get fresh bacon from a meat place the temperature does change.  The fresh bacon, I’ve noticed, cooks better at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes (depending on the thickness of the bacon). I do cook mine a little longer than the rest of the family. I like mine extremely crunchy.

Just sharing in case you have not thought of cooking bacon this way.



What’s Been Going On?

Well it surely has been sometime since I had really posted much here. My last post from last year was on September 15th. 7 months…. YES, 7 months since my last post. That is crazy, but my life has also been crazy busy.

So… what has happened since that last post. Well…. let me fill you in.

  • We celebrated 4 birthdays
  • We officially got married
  • Celebrated holidays ( A lot of firsts for our littlest guy)
  • Celebrated 12 years together
  • Dealt with a lot of different sickness  from all of us
  • Dealt with the passing of a family member
  • Starting a New Year

There has been so much going on with us, that time seems to go by so fast. I cannot promise that I will be able to post here a lot. We have just under 2 months of school left. Meaning that it is going to be a very busy Summer with all 3 kiddos. So, I want to try at least to post once a week. I think that is a good start.

With that being said, I am looking forwards to seeing you here next week. Have a great weekend!!



First Birthday!!

On April 3rd, we celebrated our little man’s 1st birthday!! I cannot believe that the first year has gone by so fast.

Here is the past year in pictures.
















I cannot believe that you are growing up so fast. I am so glad that you are a part of our family. You fit in perfectly. You have been learning so many new things and I enjoy getting the chance to watch you learn them. I know there is so much more on the horizon that you will achieve. You will reach all of them. Just remember to take your time with them.

I am also so excited to see the little man you will turn into. I love you more than words can say and you are wonderful no matter what. I send you all of my love.



Homemade Baby Wipes

For those who know me, I am one who will try to do anything to save money. I am not a big money spender. I rather do everything in a cheaper way or form.

When I came across the idea to make my own baby wipes, I was so down with it. honestly it is a very easy process and it does not take a lot of materials. Most of the items you will need are probably already in your house.
