Update on my New Year Goals

Hmmm… so I am not doing as well as I would hope. I was excited with the new year and I think my expectations were too high for myself. Although I have done well on a few of them, I think the ones I am not doing so well on are the everyday activities I…

Library…failure 🙄

I am a little old fashioned and LOVE going to the library! I love to take my 2 girls, my son not quite into it yet, but we’ll keep trying🤓 So I saw this new section with Express Reads, you have 1 week to finish the book and no renewal. I thought “oh yeah I…

Crockpot Diced Potatoes

This is my new recipe I tried this week (#newyeargoals) 🍽!! Those of us that like potatoes, in our family, loved them! I added sour cream (which I always do with potatoes) and this would also be good with ranch or some bacon bits! But this  was a winner for us and I’ll make again ✅ Ingredients:…

Mom Tip #108

Another tip or suggestion I have for all you moms, or really anyone – have a good, organized laundry system! Otherwise, your laundry can take over your house 😫 I always hate having laundry baskets sit around, then the clothes sit and get wrinkled and mornings are spent doing a deep search through the laundry…

Norwex Business Cards

These are my fun, business cards that I just had to share! I love trying these products and promoting to others – the idea of improving our quality of life has never meant more to me than it does right now. When I read the chemicals in our cleaning products and even our bathing ingredients…

“Love is all you need”

Below is a picture of  my hubby and I 💕 And wow, Love is all I needed the last year and this guy has been so supportive and loving, I don’t think I could have gone through it without him! From my dad’s cancer diagnosis on 12/27/17 and to his passing a few weeks ago and to…

CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP – Crockpot

This recipe is from a friend that brought our family a huge batch when my dad was in Hospice and it was a hit! Since it was new, I am also considering it as one of New Year goals of trying a new recipe ✅ What I love about this soup recipe is that it…

Christmas Break for kids…not for me

This is the time of year, where it is especially hard being a working mom! Right up there with Summer break! Kids are off of school and mom has to work 😦 It is so hard  to know my kids are at home (probably having a ton of fun) and I’m away from them all…

Speech from the Celebration of Life service for my Dad

“Hi everyone, I’m Christy, I’m the baby of the family. First of all, we want to thank everyone for the overwhelming support over the last year since he’s been diagnosed; it’s been rough! Lots of ups and downs and more than once we thought we were going to lose him and he just kept fighting!…

“see you later”

This weekend my father went home to his Heavenly Father! He had a year long battle with Melanoma and fought every day, every minute to beat it! He was such a strong, loving, faithful father, husband, grandfather, brother and friend. We love you dad and will miss you more than you will ever know! Thank…

Back and Forth

I continue to struggle with what’s going on in my life, with my daughters anxiety skyrocketing and fathers cancer slowly taking over his body- I go back and forth about what to feel worse about; my daughters mental health breakdown or fathers future?! 😥 I try and think “find something positive” I always find the…

Yes, I do have a lot to be thankful for but…

So our family has had a rough couple weeks, well months actually! With my dads cancer diagnosis just seems to be more bad news all the time and our oldest daughter’s anxiety has reached a high and has complicated every aspect of our lives! It is so hard to see the ones closest to us suffer!…
