As with all things in this renovation, the starting place is our budget! It’s SO easy for budgets to get blown in the process of renovating (or building!) because little things turn into big things and they add up. I’ve budgeted EVERYTHING line by line for each room of this renovation so we can decide … Read More

The Meal Plan

I did a little virtual tour of our weekly grocery haul over on Instagram and got a few comments from you all asking for the full meal plan!

Supplement Spotlight :: Seed Daily Synbiotic

In Family, Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I get asked quite often about various supplements, but one of the most asked about is the probiotic I take. I’ve used various different probiotics over the years, but again and again I kept hearing my in-the-know friends talk about their love for Seed. This daily synbiotic (prebiotic and probiotic) has quickly become my favorite and Joe’s favorite, too.
