My Wood Watch Collection | Wood Apple Watch Bands

I know it’s past Christmas already, but I have a special giveaway for you all.

You have seen me post about (and wear) my JORD (pronounced yode) wood watches and I’ll continue to do so because they. are. the. best.

There is something about the craftsmanship, the simple minimalist style, and the back-to-earth feelings I get when it’s on my wrist.

JORD recently added Apple Watch bands which gives me all the heart eyes over here since I got an Apple Watch for Christmas from my mother-in-law! That means I can wear JORD every day!

Our Modular Home Journey

In the past week, I’ve been asked so many times if I can share more specific details of our modular home journey, specifically costs and photos.

As much as I love replying to each of you, I have to chase around two very fast kiddos so I figured it would just be easier (and quicker) to put all this out here.

Let’s be real

When I started out on this mom-blog adventure, I told myself that I needed to remain real with you guys.

Sometimes I succeed, other times I find myself trying to write what I think y’all will like or what I think will get the most hits.

Why would I do that to myself?

This world of social influence is tricky, but the short answer to that is…I have no clue.

Embracing my strong-willed child

We’ve hit tough terrain over here.

I’m not talking about terrible-twos, because we’ve been in that for 10 months and…well, it isn’t pleasant, but we’ve learned how to deal with that.

This post is about a few different things.

It’s about how we are embracing the strong-willed side of our child, and how we are embracing our child.

This Thanksgiving, I’m only having one piece of pie!

The holidays are coming up, and if you like pie…read on…(or if you have one hand in your child’s trick-or-treat bag—this is for you.)

I read that everyone has an addiction to something. I laughed when I read the word everyone because certainly I did not have one.

Then looking into the trash can in my bathroom…I discovered mine. Sugar.
