When will it come…

I wish I was writing from a dirt filled lot that had a foundation started, but sadly, that is not the case. We thought we would be breaking ground the last week of March. The builder said after closing, they would submit for permits, which takes about two weeks, and after that we’d be on […]

Healthy Banana Muffins

I don’t know about you, but we’re either clear out of bananas by Wednesday, or we have brown ones sitting around come grocery day. That was the case this past week and I decided to try some healthy muffins for the kids. Particularly Beckham, who apparently only likes carbohydrates these days. I tried this recipe […]

No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Bites

These have been a staple in our house for at least a year. The kids love them and think they’re a treat and they curb my sweet tooth. Jokes on us because they are choke full or protein and healthy ingredients! Plus, they take less than five minutes to whip up and require very little […]
