5 Reasons Why You'll Love a Tomorrow Sleep Mattress {+ a $100 Coupon!}

I recently turned 36 years old, and I’ve been feeling my age a lot lately. The grey hairs have started popping up more frequently, I’m seeing laugh lines all over my face that were never there before, and I’ve been dealing with some serious back pain. I remember how I used to laugh at all those jokes about getting older and having back pain, but it’s really no joke! Back pain can make you feel miserable and ruin your whole day. My body has been feeling a little out of whack for a while now. Getting older, having two difficult pregnancies in the last 5 years, and losing 100 pounds really took its toll on me. The sciatic nerve pain I had {CONTINUE READING…}

Plan for Your Family’s Financial Future with Prudential

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Prudential. Four years ago, I quit my full-time job as a paralegal to become a stay-at-home Mom. It was the first time in my adult life that I was not earning a paycheck. Instead, I was relying solely on my husband’s income. Not having any income of my own, or any money in savings, made me feel very uncomfortable and vulnerable. If anything had happened to my husband’s income during that time, I don’t know what I would have done. After we added a second child to our family and purchased our first home, I realized it was time for me to get serious about planning for the future. While I don’t like to {CONTINUE READING…}

How I Save Money as a Stay-at-Home Mom

This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs.  I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine. Being a stay-at-home Mom, I am always looking for ways to cut costs and save money, especially when it comes to purchases I make for my kids. They are expensive! My kids outgrow their stuff so fast, and I don’t want to spend a ton of money on something they aren’t going to wear for very long, so I only buy clothes and shoes when they are on sale, and I accept as many hand-me-downs from friends and relatives as I can get. Whenever I shop online, I always shop through a “cash back” website to earn cash {CONTINUE READING…}

Must-Have Home Canning Supplies

Buying home canning supplies has been on my mind a lot lately. My husband, John, planted a variety of vegetables in our garden beds a few months ago, and we have been harvesting like crazy for the last couple of weeks. We only had one garden bed last year, and it produced so many vegetables that we could not even keep us with them all. This year, we added on two more garden beds, and we are planning to can a lot of our garden haul. We planted quite a few different vegetables, but I think I am most excited about the tomatoes. Last year we had SO many tomatoes, and we actually planted even more this year. They haven’t ripened yet, {CONTINUE READING…}
