Last year, I wrote a post my daily routine as a work from home mom. I was a little surprised by how many of you were interested in the ins and outs of my typical day. Because my children are all school age, that routine changes significantly in the summer! Today I’m going to share my summer routine as a work from home mom.
Is anyone else out there sticking with their healthy eating resolutions for the year? I’m a little behind the ball and just starting to make improvements to my diet. I tend to get really bored when I try to eat healthier, so I’m constantly trying to switch things up. Today, I’m super excited to share my latest healthy recipe – an amazing Avocado Egg Salad.
The Avocado Egg Salad is a rich, creamy recipe that’s perfect as a side dish, or for a protein-packed lunch.
A big thank you to Chicken of the Sea for partnering with me on this post about my daily routine as a work from home mom. All opinions are my own.
Earlier this year I posted about all the ways I make a full-time income from home, and ever since then I’ve gotten a lot of questions about how I make it all work. As it turns out, there are many of you who feel the same way I do about wanting to do it all – work from home while being more present for family.
I’ll be honest – it’s been a nutty year of trying lots of new things and trying to balance it all, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. (…Unless being independently wealthy was on the table…then I’d totally take that.)
Today I’m sharing my daily routine as a work from home mom – which, as you’ll read, changes every single day.
What does my daily routine look like?
4:00 a.m.: Alarm goes off. Nope – not a typo!
I get dressed, make myself look (somewhat) presentable, grab a quick cup of coffee and head to my office to prepare for the first appointment of the day.
4:30 a.m.: Begin my morning side hustle: teaching ESL classes online. I love this work because it it’s fun and stress-free, and gives me the consistency I don’t always have with freelancing and blogging.
7:30 a.m.: Help my kids with the last of their morning routines, like brushing hair, signing forms, and packing lunches.

Can you feel that? The chill in the air is already creeping in, and so are the Halloween decorations in every store I visit. As you’re well aware, I’m not a big fan of fall, but the holidays of the fall and winter seasons sure make the nip in the air a whole lot more tolerable.
While I do love delighting my kids with a fun themed meal every Halloween season, I don’t always have the same zest for pulling off the details.
Today I’m sharing my lazy mom’s guide to Halloween Dinner. I’m including three, super-simple ideas for pulling off that cute themed dinner, without the prep.
That’s right: if you’re decidedly *not* a Pinterest mom, this post is for you.

As the saying goes: When life gives you lemons…make a creamy, homemade Lemon Vanilla Ice Cream. Just the right amount of tart and the right amount of sweet for the perfect summer treat. Serve it up on a sugar cone, or in a glass of lemon-lime soda for a refreshing summer ice cream float.

It’s finally feeling like summer here in the Midwest: school is out, and temps are finally heating up. That means we get to escape to the great outdoors, to enjoy meals on the patio and schedule picnics and potlucks with friends. Recently, I experimented with a new side dish that our family is loving lately – Deviled Egg Pasta Salad. It combines the creamy, rich flavor of deviled eggs with the crunchy goodness of your favorite pasta salad.

Do you ever mysteriously forget about a recipe that you totally love? Only to rediscover it and over-celebrate its return to your life by having it weekly?
Well, that’s what happened to me with the recipe I’m sharing today. This dish has it all: fluffy eggs, crunchy hash browns, melted cheese, crunchy green onions and fresh tomatoes. It’s an amazing explosion of flavor.

Lately I’ve been trying extra hard to make desserts and breakfasts from scratch. Less processed cookies, treats and cereals = more homemade goodness. Today I’m going to share the amazing recipe we made over the weekend: Chocolate Caramel Banana Bread.

Today I’m going to share one of my favorite fall recipes: White Chicken Chili, made in the slow cooker. It’s a family favorite, not just because of the rich flavor of this cold weather comfort food, but because it’s a cinch to make. Made with just a few simple ingredients , this recipe is a guaranteed crowd pleaser!

Last week my baby started Pre-Kindergarten. Time is going fast, and I’m determined to savor these golden moments I still have with her at home with some special, 1:1 time.. Since she is getting to be such a big girl, I thought it would be fun to have a special tea party with her, letting her make a new recipe, a Honey Bear after school snack, all by herself.
You see, she is so excited to go to her bumblebee themed classroom a few 1/2 days per week, and lamented on the first day she didn’t have a bee costume to wear 😂
Then, this weekend,we were especially excited to have guests who just started bee keeping. We enjoyed all their stories and pictures, and even got one of their first bottles of honey as a hostess gift. As a result, the kids are pretty sure we should start beekeeping, too (um, no.).
So, it felt especially serendipitous when I received a golden box of goodies from the National Honey Board to inspire us to celebrate National Honey Month with some honey, beautiful party decorations and easy, kid-friendly recipes.
