Iced Coffee and Chocolate Milk Cheers

One of the hardest parts of adulting is dealing with your finances. Sure, I can think of a few people who are good at it, but do they like it? No. If they didn’t have to do it, would they? Nope.In our family, Jason is the saver and I’m the spender. He is SO good at need vs. want, and me, well if I want it then I…

Tips for Transitioning Your Toddler to a New Daycare

Let me just start off by saying, transitioning to a new daycare was really hard. Although, I’m not sure which was harder. The actual process of transitioning Blaire to her new school or having to tell her current daycare that we were moving her.

Time Keeps on Slipping…

Things here have just been so crazy busy! With Blaire being sick and teething it has been over a month since we have had a good night of sleep, which means I’m basically a zombie 100% of the time.
