Finances: Make Money while Spending Money

I’ve covered this topic before but it is too good not to cover it again.  I’ve earned a lot of cash back by shopping through Rakuten lately and I want to make sure to share my secrets with you! Rakuten formally Ebates, if not already in your repertoire you should totally be added.  Why is that…

Travel: Hi Again, Ohio!

It’s odd, I know, but Ohio has to be one of my favorite places.  I can’t really place my finger on the reason why but there is just something so beautiful about this place. Jon and I took a trip to Ohio last year for a show he was doing and we got the blessing…

Infertility: Grief

We’ve been dealing with infertility for over ten years and recently experienced our first pregnancy and subsequent miscarriage. I keep asking myself when does it get easier? When does the pain stop? When do we finally get our blessing? I don’t understand why God chose this path for us or why other people get to…

Weight Loss: One Hundred!

When I started this weight loss journey a little more than a year ago, I thought losing one hundred pounds was impossible.  I told myself that I could never, ever stick to a diet for as long as it would take to lose the weight.  I kept trying to convince myself that the diet was…

Cooking: Keto Alfredo Sauce

I’ve always been a HUGE fan of pasta with alfredo sauce.  While pasta is long forgotten, unless of course it is a low carb version, alfredo sauce is something we can still go to town on!  I searched long and hard for a good keto version and none of the recipes I found quite fit…

Life: Favorite Podcasts Pt. II

Infertility: Well Then…

Well we were trying but after just a few days into it I started spotting again.  I assumed it was my body’s way of telling me that it wasn’t ready yet.  I was disappointed, but I took the cue and we immediately stopped. Jon encouraged me to go to the doctor to see what was…

Infertility: Living as an Infertile Person in a Fertile World

I am walking through Marshall’s, one of my favorite places, and there right in front of me are racks and racks of discounted baby clothes.  I walk a little further and there sitting right in front of all the mugs is one that reads “Mom to be.”  As I walk into my RE’s office (Infertility…
