    The Best Fall Buys at Hobby Lobby

    Well, summer is just about over, and the holiday season will soon be upon us. (Although, if you go by the current temperatures across much of the country right now, it can be hard to get into the fall spirit!) And so, this means it’s also time to be thinking about seasonal holiday decor! You may or may not know that Hobby Lobby does not really “do” Halloween, in the traditional sense. This is probably due to the company being known for having owners with more conservative Christian values… which also is why their stores are not open on Sundays either. But they definitely have more than their fair share…

    7 Shows from the Past that You Should be Watching!

    I don’t know about all of you guys, but I think a lot of the shows currently on television are just… not good. Either a repetitive concept (SO MANY singing/talent competition shows!), the acting is subpar, or they’re just generally obnoxious, overly goofy, and annoying. It often seems like they’ll just put any trendy thing at all on tv. So I honestly tend to watch old episodes/seasons of shows from years past more than anything else. There’s just something about having a familiar and comforting show to watch, especially during everything that’s happened over the last few crazy years. Plus, with many of us spending more time at home with…

    Quarantine Life

    Well, 2020 sure isn’t shaping up to be the year any of us thought it would be, huh? We are certainly living in a strange and unprecedented time. Many of us are currently stuck primarily at home, with nowhere to go and lots of hours to fill. And if you’re anything like me, probably going at least a little bit stir-crazy. It’s all fine and dandy to be a homebody under normal circumstances, but this takes it to a whole new level! So my goal is to use this time to dive back into blogging, and come up with some useful, informative, helpful, even entertaining new content for you guys……

    Walmart $25 Family Easter Basket Challenge

    The internet is overflowing with ideas for extremely elaborate and creative Easter baskets- some of which aren’t even baskets at all! I’ve seen goodies stuffed into upside-down baseball caps, rain boots, umbrellas, and even baby swimming pools! And each is often filled to the brim with themed (and often pricey) goodies. While these are amazing ideas, not everyone wants to shell out a small fortune, or is able to afford such an over-the-top setup-especially if they have a large family with several children. Or maybe you’re a single parent struggling to make ends meet, one or both parents have lost their jobs, there have been unexpected medical or other bills,…

    Sausage-Cream Cheese Biscuit Bites (Only 5 Ingredients!)

    Have you ever seen a recipe that looked SO DELICIOUS that you immediately got into your car, drove to the store, purchased the necessary ingredients, and made it right away? I don’t think I ever have… until I saw a recipe video on Pinterest for these Sausage-Cream Cheese Biscuit Bites. And let me tell you, when I actually bit into one of these puppies, I was NOT disappointed. Flaky, buttery biscuit dough+smooth cream cheese+sharp, flavorful cheddar+zesty sausage… what’s not to love?! Obviously, these would be perfect as part of a hearty breakfast, but could also serve as a great party appetizer too. The original recipe calls for making them in…
