We live on a mostly single income, that is when Davis isn’t working part-time. Although my benefits are better than most jobs, my salary is comparable to a teacher’s salary, to give you an idea. We have to budget very tightly, in a semi-Dave Ramsey kind of way. The cash envelopes don’t really work for […]

Well, it happened. Our first child lulled us into a false sense of security, and we decided to have another. After spending much time laying in bed (thanks, morning sickness) while my toddler watches episode after episode of Daniel Tiger, I’ve done some pretty extensive research on registry essentials for baby number two. […]
Before I had kids and I was just an aunt, I was like Willy Wonka when it came to my nieces and nephews. You want that 3-pound gummy bear? Aunt Jessie will get it for you. Oh, you found a Pixy Stick that’s taller than you? Sure, kid! Aunt Jessie’s got you. Let’s wash it […]
Chores are never fun. Most people would probably include grocery shopping under the ‘chore’ list, but it doesn’t have to be! I have always enjoyed grocery shopping. I didn’t realize that was weird until I started talking to other moms who detested that weekly or sometimes five times a week ‘chore’. I know, it’s just […]
It’s a time that many of us look forward to all year. The decor, the recipes, the parties. The traditions. While there are some traditions that make the holiday season worth anticipating, there are some traditions I seem to carry year to year that I would like to forgo this year. 1. Trying to anticipate […]
I am a proud Oklahoman. I love walking around Downtown, popping into shops on Campus Corner in Norman, and adore the quaint little towns scattered throughout our great state. I’m proud of this place and I love supporting it through buying local. I’ve rounded up some shops that carry one-of-kind items perfect for the Okie […]
Before my kids’ birthdays and then again before the holidays, I purge our house to make room for the influx of new things we will get. Of course we appreciate everything our friends and families give. But we live in a small house, and sometimes I feel like I’m drowning in toys and plastic. Plus […]
We have a baby shower problem, y’all, and we need to talk. Tell me the point of making a registry if no one is going to look at it? Or, at least mark an item as bought? Mom-to-be, consider this post one to share with your friends as a “soft,” but not-so-subtle reminder. A mom’s […]
We have partnered with Evereve to promote their new store coming to Classen Curve! However, all opinions are my own.
Have you seen that meme that says “I thought I’d be a Pinterest mom, but turns out I’m more of an Amazon Prime mom”? Yeah? Well, that’s me. We are from a rural farming town in western Oklahoma and we are a little far from civilization (the nearest Wal-Mart is thirty miles away) so […]
The back to school shopping season is upon us all. While you’re out browsing the aisles, look for these affordable and versatile supplies that can be used all year long to encourage creativity and exploration through age-appropriate art making. I teach art for kiddos from 18 months through early elementary. These are my art supply […]
