Outdoor Entertaining and Grilling on the Lighter Side

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of Single Edition Media. It seems that the older I get, the more the days and seasons seem to just blur together. This could very well be that as a full fledged adult who doesn’t have any children my life doesn’t have those clear start and stop times marked by the frenzy of back to school shopping or restlessness for school to be let out.

Who Needs a Meal Plan When There are Pierogies.

This post is sponsored by Mrs. T’s Pierogies. All opinions are my own I set out to meal plan every weekend and usually, I fail about 75% of the time. The only time I seem to be able to meal plan is when my husband goes out of town for the week, and I absolutely feel like there is no medical reason for me to cook a meal for myself every day. Even though I’m only playing one of those Insta-drool worthy meal planners one week out of the month I still pretty much get bored with my meals. It’s…

Most people dread mornings, but I’ve found that mornings are what you make them. You chart the direction of your day by your morning thoughts. It’s like when you wake up on the “wrong side of the bed” and just feel cranky the rest of the day. I’ve found that I’m more productive and able to successfully achieve my goals when I wake up and immediately get started on my day. Of course, I always take…

How to Make Your Overnight Guest Feel at Home with Nubian Heritage

I’m pretty big on the whole treating people the way I want to be treated mantra. Recently, it’s like people forget that’s a thing, you know, the whole other people’s feelings thing. Extending kindness is probably one of the easiest things to do, and it only takes a second of your time. Since I’m all about making people feel welcome, I kind of go all out whenever I have an overnight guest. I find that whenever I spend the night at someone’s house other than my parents, it’s always awkward for me, I never really feel like I can relax. It’s…
