What I Wore Wednesday

Stay at home mom’s unite and get inspired to get out of those yoga pants, do your hair, and put a little effort into yourself for a change.  A new series to motivate myself to put in a little extra effort each and every day.  What I wore Wednesday is a way for Mom’s to share outfits and get inspired to get dressed even if they aren’t heading off to work each day. Becoming a stay at home mom, for me, really took a tole on my personal style and self confidence.  Not only does having babies change your body, but it changes the amount of time you have to put into yourself. ...

Strawberry Dessert Kabobs

Summertime means ripe perfect strawberries in our neck of the woods.  This is a great summertime dessert that anyone can make and that everyone will love.  Here is a quick and ultra tasty summer time dessert that the entire family will not be able to resist.  Strawberry dessert kabobs will be a hit after a summer cookout or party.  They take minutes to put together and are fresh, fun, and really good too. I have realized that my children seem to love any type of food that is served to them on a stick (not sure what that is all about), but this tasty treat was no exception.  After making...
