Does anyone love doing laundry? Maybe you have an organized system to stay on top of the daunting piles brought in by both children and adults alike. Until recently, laundry was a never-ending task for me. As soon as I thought I had a handle on it, shock overcame me as I peeked into the closets only to be met with overflowing bins! How can tiny humans produce such large piles of dirty garments? I decided to research local laundry services. I knew the concept existed; however, I did not know much about the process. Baton Rouge has many options available to meet your laundry needs. Whether you want to retire from the job completely or send out some of...

In my mind, by the time my son got to his SENIOR year in high school, I would feel like a professional parent, right? By now, we have survived the newborn phase, toddlerhood, middle-aged weirdness, AND even pre-teen and teen drama. Although we have experienced a lot together over the years, this year has a lot of new - final athletic seasons, graduation, and college applications to name a few. As this year begins, in my gut I am excited. Excited to see my son grow and bloom into the young adult he is turning into. Excited to see him conquer his hard classes and a fun athletic season. Excited for the rest of our family to gather around and...

I Surrender

0
I’ve been a self-help kind of gal that likes to read books and take accountability. If I wanted something, I worked hard to earn it. I have evaluated ways that I could improve myself often. I’d assess my choices but then I would do them all for fear of making the “wrong” choice. Choices like, “Should I go for a walk right now or spend time with my family?” “Should I take a shower right now or clean the kitchen?” “Can I get a moment to breathe or should I go read a bedtime story to my child?” became the norm.   When I found myself working harder than ever and feeling as though my days were running together without feeling...

Why We LOVE Fall

Fall is here and my girls and I are ready. Fall candles are lit, pumpkins are out, fall scents are plugged in, and our fall village is on display. It’s time to break out the cozy blankets to snuggle with the babies while I drink my tea from my sweater weather mug. We did it, we braved the heat of another summer of outdoor kid activities. I peeled the babies and toddlers in and out of swimsuits so that they could swim, fish, and boat. Good times were had, but this mom is tired. I am happy to put on a sweater and dial down the activities to chase kids around a pumpkin patch. Fall is cozy, Fall is pretty, and Fall...
As I’ve watched Hurricane Ian strengthen over the last few days and head straight for Florida and to the East Coast, my heart hurts knowing the impact the heavy rain and winds will have on their communities. I immediately wanted to do something. For a moment in time, I was reliving what so many of us lived in August of 2016 and other Louisianans experienced with Hurricane Laura (2020) and Hurricane Ida (2021) – the cries for rescue, the fear of the unknown and the questions of what to do. There are a few things we Louisianians have learned since August 2016 so I thought I would put together a list compiled out of love from your Louisiana neighbors....
Some of my absolute favorite things about fall are the colors, weather change, and introduction to the holidays! Fall is a time when people become cheerful (is it because it’s getting less hot?) and unified around pumpkins and football. People begin thinking of giving and gifting. Football season rolls in and for Baton Rouge, that means Saints and LSU games! Who doesn’t love a good tailgate? Here are some of my favorite things to bring to a tailgate/holiday party: Bacon wrapped dates These are some of my favorites in a pinch. 2-3 ingredients and ready in under 20 minutes. Although best served warm, they are allergy friendly and DELICIOUS! Brownies/cookies My favorite brownies are the gluten-free boxed brownies from Trader Joe’s! My...
For our Little Botanists There is something simply magical about growing your own plants. My two little botanists love seeing their plants rise out of the soil. Right now, we’re growing mint, strawberries, and greens. (We would grow beans but my oldest, Jack, is concerned about giants.) It all started at my parents’ house in Mississippi where they a large garden. My oldest, Jack, refers to it as his and his Pawpaw’s garden. They grow all kinds of vegetables, fruit, and flowers. My two little botanists love all of the plants.   Now we want to help you get started with your own garden. First, you need a designated area or planter for your plants. We have an elongated planter with space for each of the...
