Family Budgeting in 2021

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Hi friends! Happy NEW YEAR! Today I’m talking about something that has become near and dear to my heart over the last half of 2020. It’s not the sexiest of topics, but it’s important. So, today let’s talk about budgeting. Most of us probably have some goals for the year ahead, and I would guess that at least a few of those goals revolve around finances. Am I right? Over the last couple years I felt convicted to button up … Read More

Top Old Navy Active Picks

In Fashion by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

For years I’ve been a fan of Old Navy Active’s clothing for working out. I’ve worn their run shorts since I was in high school (?!) and continue to love some of their basics for everyday workout gear. While I’ll be the first to say that not ALL of their clothing is a home run, there are some real gems to be found at Old Navy. I’m rounding up some of my favorites that I’ve worn, washed and dried (so … Read More

It’s Heart Month!

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Two years ago, February was a month dedicated to candy and Valentine’s Day and Ainsley’s birthday, but now it’s even more special to our family. February is heart month and February 7-14 is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week. For some very obvious reasons it’s a month close to my heart and a topic I’m super passionate about. What I didn’t know before having a heart baby was that 1 in every 100 kiddos is born with a heart defect. Not … Read More

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

We bought our primary home six years ago knowing full well it would be a project. It’s been nearly six years worth of projects! We may not be completely finished with our home renovations, but we have most of the major renovations complete. So what’s a couple to do when they run out of projects? Evidently, in our case, the answer is to buy another project house. (Insert nervous laugh…) The WHYNeither Joe nor I grew up with family who … Read More

Why you need to make the switch to clean deodorant (and how!)

In Fashion by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

New Year = New Deodorant. That’s how the saying goes, right? Okay, maybe not. But if you’re in the process of cleaning up your personal care products and haven’t addressed what goes on your armpits, then it’s time to listen up. For over a decade I used a conventional deodorant/antiperspirant, but when I started learning more about the impact what we put on our body has on our health, I started to think twice about my daily antiperspirant. It turns … Read More

Current Favorite: After School Smoothie

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I have one fairly picky eater (ahem, Ainsley) who isn’t a big fan of things like foods touching on her dinner plate, anything remotely “spicy,” and anything that isn’t a very familiar food. It’s been a tad frustrating, to say the least, when her siblings are happily eating whatever I serve and our oldest is complaining about what mom made for dinner. I’ve read a lot about helping kids develop a healthy relationship with food and not forcing things too … Read More
