Free Printable Flexible Meal Planning Guide
  Do you hate that 5:00 question as much as I do?  You know the one…”what’s for dinner?”  That of course is followed by the obligatory “dinner dance” of opening the pantry, fridge, and freezer, and staring blankly.  It’s almost like I expect our meal ingredients to light up with a neon sign and sing a little song – “use meeee to make the perfect dinner tonight!” Alas, that has yet to happen.  But a mom can hope, can’t she?   Last year, amidst the organization rush of New Year’s Resolution and frustrated with that question, […]
How to Create a Command Center That Works for Your Family

“What’s For Dinner?” Menu Planning Board – with FREE Cut File!
  I will freely admit, I am someone that feels stifled by too much organization. Don’t get me wrong, I “ooh” and “aah” over flawless labels on beautiful containers…or command centers with a place for everything…or spotless pantries with cans stacked perfectly…or weekly cleaning schedules with chalkboard checklists.  I admire them, but that’s just not realistic to me.  And when I try to attain something like that, I feel really great for the day or two that it actually works…then feel like crap when I get behind on keeping it up and discouragement sets in.

stay-at-home mom to a beautiful little girl and handsome baby boy, wife to an incredible husband, and daughter of a loving God.
