Bamboo Cutting Board #Review

It’s no secret that my husband is the main cook in our household. He has a passion for being in the kitchen that I just haven’t been able to tap into yet. With that being said, he was very excited to see our new set of cutting boards delivered. We’ve had the same cutting board since our newlywed days and just kept putting off replacing it.

Brightening Up My Space With #BOUQLove #spon

I have to admit – I’m a sucker for pretty flowers and plants. My absolute favorites are lillies and orchids. I was first introduced to The Bouqs at BlogHer in San Jose, California and just loved the fresh flowers they had at their booth.

Their online ordering process is very simple and easy to use.

Tips For Successful Time Management

Time management is a constant struggle for our household and with school starting in a few days I know it’s time to get back on track (again!) and out of our laid back summer schedule. I know, I know – we really should have started our back-to-school schedule a week or so ago to make the transition easier – my snooze button and I are really working on it and had a serious conversation this evening about the need to do better.
