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

Three Mom Life Outfits with K. Slade

Over the last six years of being a mom, my style has evolved quite a bit. Gone are the days of being dressed for the office every day.

I still love getting myself put together for the day, even if that means a day of working at home, running errands and playing outside. I’ve recently been ditching my large … Read More

Healthy Cookie Dough Breakfast Bowl

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

This is going to sound laughable, but I eat cookie dough for breakfast nearly every morning. Truly! Okay, so there is a hook. It’s a better-for-you cookie dough recipe that leaves you feeling full and energized. Bonus? It isn’t packed with sugar, either. You can get as creative as you want with mix-ins (sometimes I’ll add in chocolate chips, M&M’s, etc. for a treat) or keep it simple. When I want it to have a bit more staying powder, I … Read More

Getting Better Sleep

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

After having my third baby, things in the sleep department went a little off the rails. I nursed Truett longer than I had anticipated and was less stringent with with getting him to sleep through the night. Plus, Collins has always been our worst sleeper and there are still many nights when she will wake up to go potty, or wants a drink, etc. All that to say, I’m not up for long periods of time, but my sleep had … Read More

Grocery Budgeting + Meal Planning (part 2)

In Family, Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Hi Friends! Checking in with part 2 of our grocery budgeting strategies. Over the years I’ve dabbled in a lot of different ways to “meal plan” including meal boxes, meal prepping websites that provide you the week’s recipes, making my own recipes for the week, etc. There are a LOT of great resources and strategies out there, but for me, the strategy that works best for me is reverse meal planning.

Feeding Babies // Three Perspectives

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Now that I’ve officially weaned Truett (about a month ago at 14 months old) I wanted to share my perspective having fed three babies three different ways. When I was a new mom – and even the third time around – I was not prepared for how many opinions and how much emotion was wrapped up in how we as mothers decide to feed our babies. There is SO much pressure, isn’t there? Internal pressure, pressure from family members and … Read More

Thoughtful Gifts for Kids

This year I’m nearly done with Christmas shopping for the kids! I made a very intentional list – along with prices and who was getting what – and edited the list a bit, too, and then I got to shopping. Between Target’s deal right now (spend $100 on kids toys and save $25) and Amazon Prime Day (today and tomorrow) I found a lot of great deals on items I was already planning on buying. But! since I was shopping … Read More
