Mom Tip #101

This will be something new – some short, simple to the point tips about things I do to make mom life just a little easier( yeah it is possible 😉)

These are my “Mom Tips”!

And the first one: prepare, prepare, prepare! The most you can prepare, the better! The first part of the week, I prepare the dinner menu. For the dinner menu, I have a chalkboard I write down each day of the week with what I “plan” on for dinner. Some days it doesn’t always go as planned; yes sometimes I forget to thaw out the meat 😕 but having it  written out then I don’t forget and when my husband gets home before me, he knows what I’m planning and what he can get started!


Norwex consultant 

Hi everyone! Happy weekend! With the free joining consultant sign-up, I decided to become part of the Norwex team…and yes another role 😊

I truly believe in this product and want more of it , so that’s why I decided to join, get product at a discounted rate and I want to share this with YOU! I’ll be sharing more about these products as I try them out and learn, so stay tuned!

Since I’ll be selling Norwex let me know if you have any questions or are interested in placing an order.

Laundry Finds-what about you?

Being a mom of a boy, well even my girls too, you just never know what you’ll Find in the laundry…last night it was moss! Stuffed in the pockets of his shorts 😜 

What are some crazy, unusual things you’ve found in laundry?

More Cancer Found

img_5075About a week ago, I posted about my dad having an appointment with the oncologist and yes, more cancer was found in his spine. He can continue with his immunotherapy while having radiation on his spine, so that is a blessing, however it is disappointing that the cancer continues to find new homes in his body. About the same time, my uncle, who has been fighting cancer for 3 years, passed away and this has made my dad’s illness even more of a reality of the outcome…it’s not “if”, it’s “when”…but we have him now and that’s what I will focus on and that is an amazing blessing! One day at a time!

God will continue to be with us and love us! He has put this mountain ahead of us to show others that it can be moved! We will continue to fight this cancer!


Things To Never Say to a Working Mom

Saw this on Pinterest from Family Share and had to share with all the working mamas out there:

Every mom has something they struggle with, we should be building each other up and supporting! not silently judging!

Norwex – Odor Eliminator vs. cat pee


So we got a new kitten, Fluffy Bubbles, and she has had no accidents in the house, until last night she peed on our couch, ugh!! And cat pee stinks!! so this gave me a great opportunity to try out and see how awesome Norwex really is…and they did not disappoint! I did use it 2x on the cat pee (probably just be I’m so conscious about animal smells in my house) but the smell is GONE!! This stuff is amazing and smells so clean! I’m so excited to try some of their other products!  I’ll keep you updated…


Casserole – Chicken Noodle with French Onions

Once in awhile , I break from our normal menu and try something different and I am so happy I did , because this was a hit with EVERY ONE in the family – AMAZING I Know 🙂


  • 4 cups of cooked chicken
  • 1 cup of French Fried Onions
  • 2 cans (10.75 oz) Cream of Chicken
  • 1 16 oz container of French Onion Dip
    • I didn’t have a full container, because honestly chips and dip is a huge weakness of mine, so I had half a container and mixed in sour cream and it still tasted great!
  • 12 oz Egg Noodles
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese
  1. Cook Egg Noodles according to package directions
  2. Preheat oven to 350
  3. Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray
  4. Mix Chicken, soup, dip and cheese in bowl. Stir in egg noodles last.
  5. Once all mixed, pour into pan.
  6. Crush french fried onions and sprinkle over top of dish.
  7. Bake for about 25 minutes.

I served with Broccoli and homemade bread. Simple dish and great for leftovers!


Cancer Ribbons

I always see so many people wearing different ribbons and I never know what they are for, so I found this and thought I’d share 🙂

For my dad, who has stage 4 Melanoma, I will be sporting the ribbons in May!

Daughter Duties

So another one of my roles, is being a daughter, I am the youngest of the 3 kids, yes “the baby”! 🙂

This role has been a little tougher lately, my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 Melanoma last December and it has been a rollar coaster ride ever since. I work in the medical field so I was able to go to some appointments and understand the whole situation from a different point of view. But he has another appointment today and I am unable to join him and my mom, which I loved being their to support them, but today it didn’t work out for me to go along. So I sit here praying they have strength, ask the right questions, feel loved and supported (even without me being their with them) and of course; good results from the appointment.

We will continue to fight this cancer battle!


“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?” Matthew 6:25

This verse has been a prayer for my children, specifically my oldest daughter lately “Lord, please help her anxiety be low and cast her worries to you”! Some may think this is simple but for those with an anxiety disorder, not worrying or being anxious is a daily, sometimes hourly battle. And sometimes all I can do is pray!
