Cole and I did that cute little questionnaire this week, where I ask him what my favorite foods are, what I do when he isn’t around, and just all kinds of cuteness. He answered that my favorite food is soup, and he wasn’t that far off! (He also said that when I am not with… Continue reading Snow Day Soup (Spinach, Sausage Tortellini Soup deliciousness)
My child loves to watch silly tv programs (like Teen Titans Go, I try to nudge him more towards Peppa Pig and Peter Rabbit, but it is usually Teen Titans Go or something with Transformers), and during such a program one day, I guess a Credit Karma commercial came on. They were offering the Credit… Continue reading Give credit, where credit is due… (The value of your credit score in your daily life)
When I first moved to Batesville six years ago, in preparation for the birth of my little love, I had a bit of culture shock. Not that Fayetteville is just this place dripping with culture, but I lived in a neighborhood five minutes from everything. I moved from there to a home in the middle… Continue reading The Pioneer Woman’s Olive Cheese Bread (see also, a taste of heaven)
My child came home from school today a little bit tired and cranky. I came home from work a lot tired, with some swollen glands in my throat…a forboding feeling for the sickness to come. The only solution, before a bubble bath and some extra bedtime snuggles, was a massive amount of carbs, AKA, spaghetti… Continue reading Mozzarella stuffed turkey meatballs (or beef, if that is the person that you are, no judgment)

In my quest to save money, I am always looking for an easier (and healthier) replacement for products I cannot live without…like coffee creamer. If you are like me, you clap your hands in delight when the holiday flavors come out. I try to only drink one cup a day (a large cup, but still)… Continue reading Salted Caramel Coffee Creamer
You have made it through day two! The weekends are the most difficult, because you have unstructured time with your family, which can sometimes mean spending more money than you planned to spend, which is never a good feeling. Cole got some Christmas spending money from my parents (and some for his college fund, yay)… Continue reading Day two (only 29 more to go!!)
Happy New Year to you all from the Kellers! We rang in the new year in our pajamas, watching Kung Fu Panda, and then a documentary on Netflix after everyone else had gone to sleep. We are super wild like that. Chances are you finished up your December absolutely tired of spending money, whether you… Continue reading No Spend January Challenge. Happy 2016!
