Just Another Dirty Hippie

Just Another Dirty Hippie

Like I’ve said in previous posts, the beginning of a month is such a bittersweet time. I miss all of the fun memories, but the excitement of a new month of adventures is always fun to look forward too!

There have been a few leaps in my personal growth and some realizations that have really helped bring me back to feeling like myself again.

Confessions Of A Wannabe Plant Lady

Confessions Of A Wannabe Plant Lady

I started my new found love of plants with some seeds, potting soil and seed starters. No instructions (despite people giving advice and resources), because I’m just not one for studying for hours on end before beginning the project. More of a learn as I go type of person.   

I’m about 2 months in, probably 50-60% of the initial plants have died…turns out forgetting to water said plants usually results in plant death…who knew right?

The Mom Bod

The Mom Bod

So, you go 9 months carrying this tiny human and finally you give birth! Wonderful right? It is, however, no one really warns you about the “Mom Bod” you are now going to be rocking in one form or another!

Inside The Mind Of A SAHM

Inside The Mind Of A SAHM

Let me start off by saying that I understand that Mom shamming happens on all sides. I am a SAHM so that is the perspective that I am coming from. So with that being said, let's jump into the post! I knew from the time I was about 6 months pregnant that I...

Vacationing With A Toddler

A few weeks ago Karl and I mustered up some courage and decided to take our first family vacation, the 3 of us. We settled on just a 4 day trip to San Antonio (which is about 3-4 hours away from us). Our plan for the car ride was to leave early enough that...

5 Ways I Use Coconut Oil

5 Ways I Use Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is one of those products that a lot of people talk about using constantly, but they don’t really mention what all they use it for!

I used to be the type of person who used a million different products, not realizing that I could use fewer products (or even one) to achieve the same results without introducing nearly as many toxins into my life.

Food Exchanges For Dairy And Egg Allergies

Food Exchanges For Dairy And Egg Allergies

Food allergies are such a tricky thing to navigate. Especially with a one-year-old who doesn’t understand what foods he is allergic too or how to deal with the results of those reactions. I can’t just tell my son to read the ingredients on the packaging or to ask what is in his food before eating anything. Just doesn’t work.

Bullet Journal Review

Bullet Journal Review

So I’m still trying to fully figure out what type of planner (or lack thereof) works best for me and my life. I am definitely a free spirit and tend to break away from a “set schedule” a lot, however, I need to have some structure, or else I will pretty much accomplish nothing and think I have nothing to do.
