My mom and a few of my best friends helped to throw my baby shower two weeks ago. It was the most adorable theme… Read More A Woodland Baby Shower
After hours of YouTube research by my husband (it’s the only way!) and Pinterest creeping for recipes, we finally pulled the trigger and bought an Instant Pot. I’ve been eyeing them up for so long, and the thing that really got me this time was that you can also sterilize baby bottles in there! The… Read More Our First Instant Pot Attempt
When my husband and I got married a little over two years ago, we decided to try to pay for the wedding by ourselves as much as we could.

My mother in law decided to start her own business almost two years ago. She makes her own soaps, lotions and all sorts of body care products. Her shop is taking a short break since she just got married, but as soon as it’s up and running again I’ll share a link. Inspired by her, I… Read More Homemade Laundry Detergent
My husband and I purchased our first home together in July of 2015, a few months before we got married.
