Cake Mix Fudge Crinkle Cookies

Chocolate. I just cannot help myself when it comes to chocolate! I think I may have a serious problem. I'm pretty much addicted. But it's just so good! And so are these cookies!

Christmas 2018

I'm usually really good about putting up all the Christmas decorations before the first day of the new year. However, that just didn't happen this year.

My daughter is 11 this year and she's at that weird in-between age where she's too young for certain things and too old for certain things. She wanted to go trick-or-treating, so we will, but she's just not as excited about… Continue reading Happy Halloween!

Grocery Shopping on a Budget

Going to the grocery store is not exactly my favorite thing to do. Groceries are so expensive! I look for ways to save constantly. Since I am a stay-at-home homeschooling mom, I really have to stick to the budget. One of the ways I save money on groceries is by making a weekly menu.
