It's almost fall!! And in South Alabama that means... nothing. It was 90 today. We will pull out sweaters out of giant plastic bins sometime Mid October and wear them for three hours before sweat overtakes us. But we still pretend it's Autumn and cook til our hearts content.Read More
Fall is coming! While some people like to spring clean I don't like to clean at all. Just kidding. I like to fall clean.

The busses are rolling through town. Don't even get me started on a rant about how early kids start school...

So today I wanted to share some quick and simple weeknight meals.Read More
Last week I started a new Periscope show called "Work at Home Wednesday." I will be live streaming (because that's the only way Periscope works) each Wednesday at 2 p.m. CST.
Last week our discussion centered around working at home when you have small children. The question came from my friend Betsy at A Mother's Road.

How would you like to buy Christmas presents for your family without spending a dime?
Or go out to eat for free? Who wouldn't, right?

It's been nine months since we closed on our house (woo!). It's been an incredible nine months living in a home that we own, that we wanted and that we worked hard for.
Since today is Money Monday, the day where I answer real money questions from real people on my YouTube channel I thought i would share a question from a viewer.
"Can you talk about saving up for a house on one income?"
Sweet and to the point, right? Here are a few things that we did and that worked for us. Remember, I am not a financial expert, just a woman who likes to save money.Read More
