Erin is a mom to two beautiful children and graces us with her blogging know how! From recipes to catching up, she keeps it fresh with a variety in her corner of the blogosphere!

Her latest post, Loaded baked Potato Casserole, had me drooling over my keyboard! I cannot wait to try this out! Can I make only that for dinner?

And she truly had me thinking about my priorities in blogging with Comparison is Stealing my Joy. She gets real about how we are too hard on ourselves and don't allow ourselves enough credit!

Oh and I couldn't miss her post, If you Really Knew Me. Her honesty and openness both blew me away and inspired me! I love getting to know other bloggers better, too!

Labeled by Humanity, Loved by God

Labeled by Humanity, Loved by God   Written by Tammy Stafford

labeled-by-humanity-loved-by-god, book-review, following-christWhen Tammy first sent me her book, I had no idea what I was in for. I think many of us look at our past and somewhere along the line think ‘Oh, I had it hard then.’ We walk through our days carrying some hidden burden that we assume defines a part of who we are. I know I’m like this!

I grew up in middle class America. We were never rich and never poor and I never really saw what “hard” was. However, like most teenagers, I rebelled thinking that my parents were to blame for everything “wrong” in my life. My clothes weren’t stylish enough, my makeup not expensive enough and my shoes….not fashionable enough.

Pinspirations....



Hey, peeps! It's been a hectic weekend! I'm not even going to start by recapping it right now! Let me just say...7 days away from home and WHOA...it's a crazy nest in there!

Pinterest is addictive. I mean seriously, peeps, I'm addicted! I don't think if I stopped pinning now I'd ever accomplish everything I've pinned! But that doesn't stop me....or about a bagillion others of us! It is so great to get your juices flowing.

I'm not one of those pinners that feel incomplete or unsuccessful when pinning. I love getting new ideas, mixing recipes, and sharing my posts! Today, I thought I'd bring you some of my favorite pins lately!

Saturday Funny: Things Kids Say


Welcome to Saturday Funny, where I bring you the funnies from across the www! This past week in the hospital really had me missing my boys. I assume that is normal and that I'd be weird if not, but whatever. Monday night Lil Mister came with Hubby and LJ to visit me. He told me the Dr was taking the bugs out of me and that he would tell the Dr to let me come home. Thursday afternoon he was asleep when I got home. When he woke up he ran to me and said, "See I told you I was going to phone the Dr. I told him to send you home."After that I started coughing to which he replied, "That Dr is not good! He didn't fix you!"

Philly Cheesesteak Mince

Hello my peeps! This week has been hectic….which I guess is pretty normal in my life anymore!
 
Last week Friday I headed to the hospital thinking I had cracked a rib! No, I’m completely serious my friends. I was in so much pain from coughing that merely taking a step sent shooting pains through my body.

This has been an ongoing problem. I just never imagined it was going to get to this point. It started two months ago when I was diagnosed by my GP with bronchitis. I was given medication and completed the course. However, I didn’t get better. While on the medication, I improved but got worse when it was over. The first week in June I was back at the GP and diagnosed with pleurisy. Again, I was given medication. I felt better while taking it but got worse again when it was finished.

A+ Mommy

The Radical Housewife
I think I’m beating a dead horse here as the saying goes. We’ve all heard the stories. We’ve read the articles and most of us all of us have been victim of a comment at one point or another. Mommy wars are real. And they’re nasty!

I’m an A+ mom! Not to toot my horn or anything but you know, I’ve got it all figured out. Said no mom truthfully…ever. One thing that really grinds my gears is when we start dishing out advice as if it’s the written truth of parenting. It’s been said a thousand times but no two children are the same, sorry, not even identical twins! Every child will have differences somewhere down the line and the same goes for families. I can’t imagine what goes through a person’s head when they begin telling you the “right” and “wrong” ways to go about things.

Wordless Wednesday: Nostalgia
