An Honest Review of the Owlet Baby Monitor

I have been fascinated by the Owlet smart sock for a very long time. It is designed to notify you if your baby’s oxygen levels or heart rate fall out of  a preset range. I’ve heard mainly positive things and a few negative things about it. I asked my friend to use it for months and give an

Roasted Zucchini Recipe

I love fresh veggies that can be seasoned, prepped, and cooked easily for dinner or snacking. Zucchini is one of those veggies. Slicing it up and tossing it in herbs, some olive oil, and then sprinkling parmesan over it makes a delicious and vitamin-rich side or snack! This is one of my favorite zucchini recipes.

6 Winter Renovations That Can Be Completed On a Limited Budget

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kohler for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. For most, winter is cold! As temperatures drop, the temptation to just stay inside rises. Of course, staying inside all the time comes with its own problems, even if it is nice and warm. It’s part of

14 Easy Ways to Save Big on Prescriptions

Most American families have at least one prescription. In fact, studies show that Americans spend over $400 Billion on prescriptions a year. That breaks down to $1,300 a person! That number is mind boggling to me. Luckily, my family is blessed with great health so we don’t have to fill prescriptions regularly. However, at times I do

Free Activities for Kids in Utah in the Winter

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

Toblerone Cookies

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. I have since become a chocolate lover—as long as it is German, Swiss, or Belgian chocolate. Moser Roth is my favorite brand,

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

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. Because families have varying spice tolerance, I’ve included instructions for the Mild, Medium, and Hot versions. All you do is throw the ingredients in

Eggnog Floats

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

Crowd-Pleasing Pavlova Dessert

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. It was named Pavlova in honor of Russian ballerina, Anna Pavlova, during her tour to New Zealand and Australia. Extensive research argues that its creation actually began in Germany. Having lived in

The BEST Stroganoff—Turkey or Beef

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. Anyone I serve it to asks for the recipe. With the new year approaching, many are trying to eat foods with a fewer calories

Christmas Holly Berry Wreath

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. Yet, because Christmas is such a busy and expensive time of year, I usually like to keep the wreaths I make simple, inexpensive, and

DIY Mistletoe Wreath

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. I did a little ‘google research’ and found that Mistletoe has been around for ages. According to Wikipedia, Mistletoe is
