I feel like there are endless things to do with my children in the summer. We mainly hang out in the backyard, at parks, in the mountains, at free splash pads, at the lake, etc. This winter with two under 4 I’ve been trying to keep them busy, entertained, their wiggles out, etc. all without

Growing up I wouldn’t eat very much chocolate because I didn’t think it tasted very good. Then I went on an LDS mission to Germany and everything changed. I tasted German and Swiss chocolate.

This is an amazing recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup. Not only is it an easy meal to prepare (10 or so minutes), it is so tasty, versatile, and healthy.

Eggnog is such a festive treat. During the holiday season, I love to eat eggnog flavored treats, drink it mixed with Sprite, and see it on the shelves in the grocery stores. Each year since my son’s birth, I have gotten a McDonald’s Eggnog Shake. It has become a tradition. This year they no longer have them

Pavlova is a unique yet delicious meringue-based cake. It is widely accepted and believed to have been originally created in Australia or New Zealand.

I love hearty meals—especially on cold winter days! Stroganoff is a flavorful, family friendly, and easy hearty meal to make. And this is by far the best stroganoff I have ever had.

Winter is a wonderful time of year. I love to see all of the wreaths, lights, and holiday decor people have or make. Making Christmas Wreaths is something I really enjoy.

This is such a fun, easy, and inexpensive wreath to make. I love the tradition of kissing under the Mistletoe. When I went to make this wreath, I was curious about where this tradition came from.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Affirm, Inc. The opinions and text are all mine.

Neighbor gifts are always nice to give and receive. The past few years I’ve really enjoyed giving gifts to those people who mean a lot to my family.

It is easy and quick to make, especially considering
