Simple Sunday dinner with Campbell’s Chunky soup

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Campbell’s Soup Company for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. I've started boycotting dinner preparations on Sunday nights. We have a full morning out—wake up early, rush to get everyone ready for church, grab lunch and run errands, and then rush back home to…

When your dishwasher bites the dust…

I am part of the Kenmore Home Team, and the following is a sponsored post, but—sadly!—our dishwasher really did bite the dust as I was preparing for this post! On an average day, we use between 25-40 plates and bowls, more than 35 utensils, 7-10 cups and water bottles, and dozens of other pots, pans…

Help your teen #BeActiv about her health with Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews

We are steadily marching toward adolescence here, with one...two...three...four girls in quick succession.

At 30 weeks pregnant, food is an important part of my day, but gone are the days of eating three big meals that sustain me throughout the whole day. Instead, the increasing size of Baby Lucas means that my stomach holds a tiny amount of food comfortably, and small, frequent meals are becoming my friend.…

ZonePerfect® bars at Target for easy {chocolate-y!} snacks on the go!

We are on the go a lot. A LOT. And because we live so far "from town," that means we eat a lot of meals and snacks on the road. (I always laugh when people say their kids aren't allowed to eat in the car. Oh how I wish we could have that rule, but…
