At the end of September, I did an in-depth review of Stitch Fix. It was a very honest review sharing why the service hadn’t worked well for me and why I’d sent all of the clothes back. I had told you that I was going to try the service again because I had a little bit of referral credit to use and because multiple people had told me that the stylists got better at choosing clothing for you if you gave really honest feedback. So I wanted to tell you about what Stitch Fix sent me and why I may have changed my mind about Stitch Fix.
Stitch Fix is an online clothing shop designed to provide personal styling services for women at an affordable cost. It was specifically created for women who need to wear nicer clothes for events/work but who don’t want to spend hours …

Having "dates" with your kids can be a great way to nurture your relationship and create lasting memories. Here's how to do it inexpensively...
Guest post by Kimber This year, I’ve had a fun opportunity to spend two hours a week, one-on-one, with my sweet kindergartener. Once a week, my 3-year-old son is in preschool until 2:00pm, while she gets out at noon. I …

Wondering whether you give your children allowance or not? This post has some GREAT thoughts on why you SHOULD pay your children... and how to set up a paid and non-paid chore system.
As parents, one of our desires is to instill in our children skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. We only get around 18 years to train, teach, nurture, and mentor our children. Ultimately, they are …

Elizabeth writes: "Life with many children is busy and I have found it just gets busier as those children get older. They each have their own interests, activities and friends and trying to keep track of all the comings and goings of these not-quite adults can make a mother go gray even faster than she already is.

To try to save my sanity, I have come up with a game plan that keeps my busy older children happy while allowing me to keep track of what everyone is doing. Some of the key items of that game plan include..."

This is so funny! Isn't that true? You think that as they get older, life will slow down a bit. No more diapers, middle of the night feedings, tying everyone's shoes. And whereas it does get easier in many ways, it does get busier in many ways. It's a blessed busy though! Thanks for sharing this post! Looking forward to seeing you at #heavcon very soon. :)

Goals give you passion, purpose, motivation, and drive. You wake up each day with intention: you have a plan and you have direction. While you might not end up as far along as you’d hoped to be at the end of the year, if you set goals and whittle away at them each month, week, and day, I promise that you’ll be farther along than if you did nothing.
As you well know, I'm a fanatic about setting goals. Why? Because I've experienced firsthand the fruit and fulfillment that comes from setting a goal and working hard toward it. In addition, without goals, you have nothing that you're aiming for. And complacency and floundering are often the result. Goals give you passion, purpose, motivation, and drive. You wake up each day with intention: you have a plan and you have direction.

I mentioned that the same day Jesse and I ran the Tough Mudder Race, our girls also ran the Mini Mudder with Jesse’s younger brother, Jon.

Let me tell you, this kid’s race was no joke! It was a mile long and filled with many different obstacles.

It was pretty grueling and I’m so proud of them for not quitting and making it to the finish line. Kaitlynn told us at the end, “I really wanted to give up, but I didn’t let myself quit.”

Their faces show the fulfillment the experienced at the end for sticking it out, persevering, and not giving up.

Honestly, I was not expecting this recipe to be as delicious as it turned out to be. I thought it would be yummy, but I didn’t expect it be one of those major winner recipes. It's so yummy, so easy to make, and filled with good-for-you ingredients!
I found this recipe in a recent issue of ALL YOU magazine and it looked easy, frugal, and delicious. Exactly my kind of recipe. Honestly, I was not expecting this recipe to be as delicious as it turned out to …

If you have ever wanted to pare down your wardrobe, check out this post on how to do it.
I'm the least likely candidate to be giving fashion tips, but ever since I posted the video of my minimalist summer wardrobe, I've gotten question after question after question about my wardrobe. So, in an effort to answer a few of those questions, today I'm sharing four tips for having a minimalist wardrobe.

"We got up early to drive to a farm that was about an hour and a half away. The whole drive there, I wondered if I had made a big mistake in signing up. I wondered if I’d be able to actually complete the race. I wondered if I’d be the last person to come in. I wondered if I would keel over halfway through.

I second guessed my on-a-whim decision a lot, but I kept reminding myself: You’re committed now. Just go do your best. Pace yourself. Don’t let doubt get in your head. Don’t worry about the few miles ahead of you, just take the next step..."

Yesterday, I did something way outside my usual comfort zone. And I completely surprised myself by loving it… What was it, you ask? Well, I ran in and finished my very first Tough Mudder race. Yup. I did. For those …

So, awhile back, I wrote a post on Why Moms Need a Time Out. Some of you loved the post, but others of you said something like, “I want to love this post, but I just don’t think it’s possible for me to find quiet in my day.”

And I want you moms to know this: I hear you. The last thing I wanted to do with that post was to burden or discourage you...
