Summer is right around the corner, but in Minnesota the weather definitely makes it seem like it has already been summer for a month already, and we love it.  I know you have probably noticed a sporadicness (is that even a word?) In the blogging, but there’s a good reason for that. I have been focusing on living in the moment and honestly the moments lately just have not called for paying attention to a… Read more »

With toddler-ing in full force it’s time to try to embrace or #HugTheMess, if you will, with Huggies One & Done Wipes. So I decided to let you in on a few of my messy life hacks with 3 ways to use baby wipes to clean up after your little ones. Regular Diapering: The first and most obvious use to Huggies One & Done wipes is for all those glamorous diaper changes you get to so throughout the day…. Read more »

What is your favorite room in the house? I am a homebody and love just snuggling in with the family and watching a movie or reading in the living room. When the weather gets warmer and the sun shines, the three season porch off the back of our house gets a lot of attention and admittedly is one of my most favorite places in the world.  But, when I truly think about it. The kitchen… Read more »

I’m going to cheat a little bit as I try to catch up with this little #atozchallenge and share an image or two that brings me so much joy for the letter J today. Seeing how great of a man I married and how awesome he is as a dad brings me so much happiness. These two are going to be two peas in a pod for sure. A post shared by Lacey. Small Town… Read more »

I stumbled across a super interesting thought on the internet the other day and I can’t remember where I saw it. But the question was whether or not people should be starting or growing a family when things are so questionable. There is violence, hate, intolerance, and so, so much more – pardon my French – crappy stuff going on all around the world so why would you want to bring a child into a… Read more »

Yeah, let’s face it. Everyone has to clean. In no way did I ever dream of becoming a housekeeper, and if you are annoyed by people who try to keep their house clean, this post probably isn’t going to interest you very much.  But, never the less, my #atozchallenge for day H is Housekeeping.  I don’t know when it happened, but at some point in my life I became a tad obsessed with having control… Read more »

G is for Grace in my #atozchallenge parenting requires a lot of grace and in many forms of the word.  You’ve heard people giving a “grace period” well I think the whole Parenthood is a grace period for some of us. You are learning everyday. Learning about yourself, about your spouse, about your child. Learning how to be a better parent, learning how to accept things you cannot change.  And honestly if there is one… Read more »

I know this title for my #atozchallenge – Food Fun and Farts – sounds ridiculous..Well, it is. But I cannot think of a better way to sum up my life some days.  Food…How many other people are like me in that all I think about is the next meal I am going to eat. Like, seriously, when I would work I would be sitting there at 9:30 a.m. planning out what I would have for… Read more »

Okay as a mom I think pretty much everyday about ways I can engage my kiddo in a fun way. Everything is a learning opportunity for a 1 year old and it is so fun to see him trying to figure out the way things work.  So for my #atozchallenge ABCs of a Small Town SAHM, E is about education because I pretty much think about it every day.  It might sound crazy or like… Read more »

The fourth post in my A to Zs​ of a Small Town SAHM is all about the man behind the blog. I get all the attention here but let’s face it, without my husband I would not be the woman I am today. That’s why today in the #atozchallenge I am writing all about my little one’s Daddy. I can tell you right now that I was pretty sure of what I was looking for… Read more »
