A Survival Guide: Momma Edition.
Disclaimer- I’m just an everyday mom trying to learn what it means to be a loving mother, wife, and daughter of the our Creator.
Being a momma is hard work. It’s a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. Before I was a momma, it was easy for me to look at other people’s situations and think, “when I’m a mom that’s not going to happen.” or “why is she doing that?” or “my kid will never have a melt down in public.”
Winter weather has come to our neck of the woods… and currently I’m sitting inside waiting for our driveway to start melting. So while I’m eagerly waiting to the snow and ice to start to melt, I’m enjoying this Winter Fruit Yogurt Bowl.
Did you know there are many winter fruits?
Toast is a great addition for breakfast. You can add extra protein, fruit, fats or grains depending on how you eat your toast. We’re going to build your everyday toast 4 ways. Don’t get me wrong, bread and butter are definitely a favorite, but sometimes we have to change things up.
Start off your day with healthy(ier) toast ideas:
Tomorrow people will be gathering for parties to celebrate the New Year or perhaps going to bed early. Another year is in the books and we have so much to be grateful for. I’m not one for making New Year’s Resolutions, but I am looking forward to 2017 and seeing how this blog will continue to grow. It seems most people are reviewing their past year so I feel I ought to do the same.
So what’s all happened this year?
Brown paper packages tied up with strings are definitely some of my favorite things! But as a momma and food blogger, I wanted to share a few of my favorite things with you. Not all of them are food related so if you think this isn’t for you, think again! Maybe you’ll find some last minute gift ideas for a special someone! Just sayin’. (I am not compensated for any item listed here. They are simply to share some of my favorite things with you using my own opinion.)
Y’all, with these days getting shorter and cooler, they’re calling for a warm cup of my favorite hot cocoa, a cozy blanket and a snuggle with my hubby, son, and puppy! I love this holiday season! It’s my favorite ever! I have to admit that I may be one of those people who listens to Christmas music many months before Christmas… but I love it!
Hey friends! Today I have a healthier snack for you that’s also kid-friendly. They’re “Na-cho” regular nachos! Okay, a little cheesy I know…
But, these Apple Nachos are a great healthy snack and super simple to make. You can make these “loaded” or keep them more on the simple side. Plus, during this time of year, you’re sure to find apples around every corner for the apple pies and homemade ciders. Instead of giving into all the cookies and dessert this season (which is a huge struggle for me, but we’re working on that…), try snacking on these healthy fun apple nachos!
All of these products listed are not sponsored and are of my own opinion. Hopefully they are things that also help you!
It’s been a year since I’ve been a momma and I have to say it’s been a wonderful year. Lots of learning, for sure. And lots of realizing that motherhood is harder than I thought. But it’s such a joy to watch the little guy grow! I wouldn’t want to imagine life any different.
In my year of motherhood, I have thought of seven things that have helped me so much. To any future first time moms, this is for you. You experienced moms already know the ins and outs of how things work, but if you have any additional encouragement for these moms, be sure to comment below. Encouragement is definitely SUPER important for any mom, but especially first time moms.
Okay, so besides the main things you need like a reliable carseat, stroller, diapers, wipes, and clothes, this is the list:
Sometimes you have one of those weeks where you’re tired of your everyday breakfast/morning routine and want something a little different. Well, look no further, I have an easy and simple Sausage Egg Vegetable Breakfast Bowl for you. Normally for us, the weekends are when we change up our breakfast routine but that doesn’t always happen…especially if we need to be somewhere at a certain time. So quick breakfasts are our usual go-to. But sometimes when we have just a few extra minutes in the morning, we love to make breakfast bowls. My husband LOVES these bowls.
I was asked to participate in the #CappTheNight campaign, sponsored by Hills Bros. Cappuccino. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.
I don’t know about you but I’m always up for a girls’ night, whether it’s to watch a movie with a favorite glass of wine or to catch up after time apart. As a momma, these are hard to come by. But when they do, count me in! With the Golden Globe awards coming up in just a few weeks, there’s another girls’ night that’s calling! And what better way to settle in with your friends and sip on this delicious Golden Caramel Cinnamon Creme Brûlée Cappuccino!
Friends, this Golden Caramel Cinnamon Creme Brûlée Cappuccino is not just delicious but it’s so easy to make! All you need is Hills Bros. Cappuccino Single Serve French Vanilla Cups, caramel sauce, milk, your Keurig, and a dash of cinnamon.
