Holiday Cleaning Checklist

This post was sponsored by BISSELL. All opinions are 100% my own.

The holidays are such a pretty time of year. Everything seems so festive and light.

You get to meet up with friends and family that you don’t always get to see and you decide you’ll worry about your diet next month!

But all the work to get the house ready for this time of year seems a little overwhelming (of course normal cleaning is a bit overwhelming to me…lol).

This year I thought it would be fun to make a cute printable to help me (and you) keep track of all that I need to do before the guests get here!

3 Reasons to Stop Yelling at Your Kids

I know I’m not the only one in the world that occasionally yells at my kids, but lately I feel like it’s been a LOT more. Maddi and I struggle most days. She’s soooo strong willed (which I KNOW is a good thing but it’s seriously hard when she’s only 2). And Connor doesn’t listen…

I use my phone for everything. I take all my pictures and videos with it and hope that by uploading them to Facebook or YouTube I’ll be able to see them even if I accidentally delete them…or drop my phone in the toilet. I know this isn’t a long term solution, but I’m busy…and well,…

Reindeer are super cute…especially when they’re little. I don’t know about you, but Sven was my favorite character in Frozen. So I thought it might be fun to find some reindeer kids books.
