    If you are thinking about or preparing to go on a family trip, you most likely have a lot to consider. Packing up our family of five, alone, is a chore, which is why any trip we take is carefully planned. I’m not talking about planning a detailed itinerary for your trip. Whether a three hour road trip or a plane ride to Disney, I have found preparing before the trip guarantees a successful family trip.…

  • Save at Stores You Shop at Most with Groupon Coupons

    Save at the Store You Shop at Most with Groupon Coupons

    This is a sponsored post.

    I have a little problem. I find myself shopping and window shopping a bit more than I should. Most items I buy are for my girls or the house, so don’t think you’ll see me in new threads every time you see me. I guess it’s the mom in me, always looking to keep the family happy and in one piece. Are you guilty of this?

    When I shop, however, I almost always have a coupon, discount or found an item on clearance. I want the most for my money at all times. Recently I discovered that Groupon has more than vouchers for a good meal or local attraction. There are Groupon Coupons and discount codes that can be used at stores you probably shop at a few times a week. One is my favorite store, Target.…

  • I Watched “What the Health”. Now What?

    I Watched "What the Health". So now what? | MommyWifeLife

    The popular documentary, What the Health, has many Americans wondering how they can become vegans. It has shined a light on practices of farmers, doctors, the government, and most importantly, us as consumers. At some point, we have all failed to make the best decisions in regards to our health and food consumption. What the Health has sort of awakened a desire to do better. For some, becoming vegan or vegetarian has become a top priority. Personally, it has helped me to become even more conscious about what I am feeding myself and my family.…

    Summer Kickoff with Sweet and Spicy Kabobs | MommyWifeLife

    Summer at my house means chalk drawings on the sidewalk, water wars out back, sitting on the deck and firing up the grill. Grilling for me means simplified dinners because my husband is typically the one doing the cooking. All I have to do is prep all the food and dinner is ready within 30 minutes. Simplified duties and good food makes just about any day a good day. It also allows me to kick back and spend more time with my family.…

  • Eliminate Stress by Putting the Kids to Work

    Eliminate stress by putting the kids to work.

    Most of the stress I experience comes from necessary day-to-day responsibilities of maintaining our home and my slightly perfectionist ways. Every mom of young children I talk to about cleaning says the same thing–cleaning with children in the home is practically a never ending chore. The trails of toys, mounds of laundry, sink full of dishes and kitchen floor dusted with crumbs for days are just some of the things I see everyday that just about send me over the edge. I am on a quest to eliminate stress and the desire for perfection. Since I love my kiddos dearly, I have decided to keep them around (wink) and put them to them to work.…

    Support Your Spouse in 2017 |

    Many have made resolutions and goals to tackle in 2017. I personally don’t make resolutions, but I am all for goal setting. I like to include my family in my goal setting and do so because I do life with them. Whatever I’m pursuing will inevitably bring my family into the pursuit right along with me. This year, one of my goals is to pay special attention to my marriage. More specifically, I want to better support my spouse and I encourage you to do the same.

    Necessities for a Holiday Bathroom Makeover | MommyWifeLife

    The holiday season has finally begun and I am just as excited as I am every year. I love everything about this time of year–hanging out with family and friends more often than usual, Christmas music playing, non-stop eating of great food and treats and, of course, Christmas decorations! My husband’s eyes roll when I mention decorations because he knows I’ll be sending him to the crawl space for everything that sparkles. This year, I saved him some energy by getting everything I needed for our holiday bathroom makeover from Target.…
