He has football season tickets and makes it to most of the home games and a few of the away ones. As much as I like giving him a hard time about his choice in teams, I have to admit that Oklahoma football games are a lot of fun to watch. I haven't been to one in years but this year, that changes as he gave me tickets to the … Read More>

Maximizing My Time with TMobile Free Data

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #TabletTrio #CollectiveBias I'm a scheduler. If it's not on my calendar, then it probably won't happen. With a full-time career, a part-time home based business and an active 5-year old, if I don't maximize my time wisely, nothing gets done. Groceries don't get purchased (we've been out of bread for over a week), the dog doesn't get walked (OK, that's not entirely the calendar's fault) … Read More>

Functional Furniture from Sauder

Sometimes, when I don't want to do the things I have to do (like paying bills, updating my budget or work work), I rearrange furniture. Yes, I have a problem.I believe this started when I was about 12 years old. In my teeny tiny bedroom I had a twin bed and a chest of drawers. There weren't a lot of different ways I could arrange my room but you better believe every 4-5 months, my bed would be against a different wall. Now that I have my own house, I don't move furniture...as much. Every now … Read More>

Breaking Up Isn’t Hard To Do

Thank you to Viva Vantage and Walmart for sponsoring this post. They've taught me that breaking up really isn't hard to do! There comes a point in your life when you decide that enough is enough. That you no longer have to settle for second best and that sometimes, you have to go through a lot of bad apples to get that perfect, shiny one. Well, I've gone through my share bad apples and I'm happy to say that I'm getting rid of something that just isn't pulling it's weight anymore. I've weighed … Read More>

Tourist Attractions in Yellowstone National Park

I'm breaking the rules and for those of you who know me personally, that's not something I take lightly! Instead of posting about my #OutdoorGirl vacation in the order of events, I'm skipping around a bit. Technically I should be telling you about my backcountry camping experience but I'm going to come back to that later. For now, I'm drooling over the pictures I took while being a tourist in Yellowstone National Park. OK, maybe drooling is not the appropriate word. After all, the only time I … Read More>

Hazelnut Pumpkin Poke Cake

Next week is a big week in our household. Not only does my daughter start kindergarten but she also turns five and we're NOT having a Frozen birthday party! Seriously, that is a huge deal. Like most parents, for the past 8 months or so, all I've heard is my daughter belt out Let It Go and tell me when things are Anna green and Elsa blue. She even went as far to proclaim blue as her new favorite color and asked me to repaint her room (ummm...no). To do something special for her first week … Read More>

Having A Ball With Fruit Shoot

Thank you to Fruit Shoot for sponsoring today’s post! To say my daughter is animated is an understatement. Earlier this week as we were exploring an empty field near our house, we took on different identities. We became "Hiker Girls" who were on a mission to climb mountains with Hiker Boy and Hiker Dog. In our adventures we raced up and down the mountains (berms) and ran through forests (weeds). When we can't go on explorations, we like to come up with different things to do in our … Read More>

8 Things I Thought Would Never Happen on Vacation

If you would have told me 5 years ago that my ideal vacation would involve driving 4,000 miles, hiking 60 miles and sleeping in a tent with my boyfriend, I would have questioned your sanity. In fact, … Read More>
