I’ve been craving barbecue sauce for quite some time. Typically, I keep some on hand. Barbecue cravings are few and far between for me, typically occurring in the summer. When I reached for my supply, however, I was shocked to see that it had expired in 2013. I suppose those cravings are a little farther between than I thought. (more…)
In the land of motherhood, companions are hard to come by. Making friends is much more challenging than in previous years, mostly due to the limited time you have to spend in social settings. But, we also now live in an age that allows us to be social online, which is exactly where we meet our new companion, Angela, from Blooming on a Budget. Angela is a single mom and nothing short of a rock star. Between work, raising two kids, and blogging, she is one busy lady, but even with all the bustle, she wouldn’t have it any other way. Her blog highlights useful resources for single moms, including tips for financial stability, recipes, and home maintenance. She believes (and rightly so) you don’t need a man to get things done and life doesn’t need to be overwhelming.
I’ve taken a few hits in my days, and in my younger years, I cared way too much about what others thought of me. These days, I’m not so concerned about others’ thoughts. What mom has the extra worry space for something like that? As a result, I’d say I have a rather healthy self-esteem. I’m pretty awesome, really. I know this. I feel this.

I’m in love with a new breakfast food. For the past several years, nothing has gotten between me and my Cheerios. I’ve been faithful and true. But there comes that point in every relationship when a bit of excitement is needed. I found it in overnight oats. This little recipe fits all my requirements: healthy, easy, and tasty. But it also has a bonus of variety. Simply by adding different fruits you can get a different taste. Without further ado, meet my new love.
