Popcorn Turkey Dressing

This popcorn turkey recipe was given to me years ago from my great Aunt Eulah.  Let me start by staying that she was sometimes a bit of a prankster.   If you are looking for an exhilarating popcorn turkey dressing recipe that the kids will beg you to make year after…

Is anyone else’s family looking and feeling more like a boorish group of cave dwellers than a modern day family these days? I think we're seriously caving into caveman mode in our house. nearly nine months together in our house, I am starting to learn we’ve all become a little…

My Favorite Matching Holiday Pajamas

Is it ever too early to start shopping for matching Holiday pajamas? I don’t think so. If you've tried to buy them in the past you know that the good ones sell out quickly. Even though I buy them early we don't open our pajamas until Christmas Eve.  They are…

Bats in the Belfry

Seeing how “batty” 2020 has been, it seems only fitting to fill our home with bats this Halloween.  I used to cut my own bats out of foam paper sheets, but I saw you can buy like 60 of these little blood-suckers on amazon for under 10 bucks.   I traded in my…

Easy Old Fashioned Apple Crisp

Easy Old Fashion Apple crisp is one of those desserts that seems to signal the start of fall.  I can't think of a better aroma coming from the oven that says, "autumn has arrived!"  We are lucky enough to have an apple tree that produces an abundance of apples each…

Yep, I am a Doomscroller

Can we all agree that everything just kind of sucks right now?  Seriously. There seems to be no good answers for anything at the moment. I learned a new term yesterday.  Doomscroller.  Apparently I’ve been one over last few months. Here is how Miriam-Webster defines it: “Doomscrolling and doomsurfing are new terms…

There’s No Room for Mom Guilt Right Now

I am burnt out.  There, I’ve said it. I am burnt out, and on top of that I feel guilty for feeling burnt out.  Summer was supposed to be our break, a time to recharge, relax, and maybe take a vacation before the chaos of the school year starts up…
