Menu Plan Monday: week of September 22nd

Happy Monday! Here we are again, back at the beginning of the week and it’s time to make a menu plan. This week should be nice. Hubby is back to work today, the kids are recovered from their weird rash (which I discovered was hot tub folliculitis), and we even have some nice weather. After what seems like a long time of eating less-than-healthy convenience foods, I am back to … Continue Reading →


How to survive the witching hour

In spite of regular doses of drama and chaos, there are plenty of things in my home that are predictable. No matter what I do, they sneak in. Allergies when the weather changes. A growth spurt every time I buy a child some new pants. A giant zit when I’m planning to be in a photo. Every day, I pick my kids up from school at 3:00. Sometimes they are … Continue Reading →


Organize school papers on the refrigerator door

So we’re a few weeks into the school year. Is anyone else also buried under a pile of papers already?!? I’ve got papers to fill out and send back. I’ve got weekly homework that needs to not be lost. I’ve got amazingly beautiful artwork done by my eight and ten-year-old. I also have a refrigerator door that seems to be disappearing beneath the small forest that has been attached by … Continue Reading →


Menu Plan Monday: week of September 15th

Happy Monday! We are bopping along here. I’m at the point where the chaos is more funny than stressful. I don’t know if that means I’ve lost my mind, or I’m just dealing with it better. Last week when Hubby tried to go back to work, his doctor said no. Originally, the doc had said to just call for a note whenever he felt well enough. When he called, the doc … Continue Reading →

Home gardening printable + giveaway

Growing your own vegetables, fruits, and herbs at home is an easy way to get a little more fresh produce into your diet. My family has enjoyed growing a small home garden for several years. You would be surprised what you can grow with limited space. Even if you only have room for a pot or two on your porch, give it a try. I love gardening even more because … Continue Reading →


Quick and easy lunch (for adults!) with Herdez frozen bowls. 10 different authentic flavors! | One Mama's Daily Drama

Quick and easy lunch with Herdez frozen bowls

I talk about food a lot here. I share my weekly meal plan and talk about all the lunchbox ideas and after school snacks that I give my kids. Planning and organizing our family’s meals helps me keep things running smoothly around here. I work from home as a freelance writer and handmade business owner, but I still put in forty hours every week. Even more on some weeks. One … Continue Reading →


Menu Plan Monday: week of September 8th

Happy Monday! Last week was notably better than the one before. We mostly stuck to the meal plan. The only variation was on Wednesday. The kids had a dentist appointment after school and both ended up having complicated procedures (ie. more than a 10 minute cleaning). We left an hour later than expected. I had no motivation to bake a batch of muffins and the bananas were not something you … Continue Reading →


September 2014 family fun in DFW

I just saw a news story that said DFW just had the coldest summer on record for the past decade. I’m not sure how I feel about that. I think sweaty. Whether you think the weather has been lovely or too hot to have fun, it has to cool off eventually. I’ve rounded up the best activities to take advantage of September weather. Here in Fort Worth there are lots … Continue Reading →


Free comic book superhero desktop wallpaper background for photos | One Mama's Daily Drama

September digital scrapbooking freebie

Did you know that September is National Superhero Month? Me neither. Well, until it popped up in my news feed somewhere yesterday. I suspect that, like many lesser-known national holidays, this one is a marketing scheme. It’s a pretty good one though, because we love super heroes at my house. My family is partial to Marvel, but if you love DC I won’t say anything bad about you. I took … Continue Reading →


Menu Plan Monday: week of Sept. 1st

Happy Monday! We made it through last week, though I’m not entirely sure how. I may be a little sleep-deprived at this point. Everything was crazy and I barely stuck to my menu plan. Most days, I just pulled a few things together from whatever was fastest. The kids went back to school, Hubby had his surgeries, and I managed to keep everything together (see above sleep deprivation). Hubby’s surgery on … Continue Reading →
