Inexpensive Vegan Meat Substitutes for Yummy Freezer Meals


We buy very, very little meat. Growing up, I didn’t have a no meat diet, but it was close, and honestly, I find a lot of it rather gross. On top of that, it’s expensive – the main reason David didn’t fight our little-meat diet too much. Over the years, he even grew to somewhat […]

How to Take Control of Your Life


No matter how crazy your life is, there is always one thing you can control. It’s simple, yet oh so hard. It’s a mindset, and it’s the opposite of a victim mentality. People only have as much control over you as you give them. Situations only have as much power over you as you let […]

Decisions decisions. 1. Do I like this outfit. 2. Which direction do I take the shoes?

This is the residual #sriracha left from my bowl of #ramen. I’ll let you judge if I had enough but my lips are on fire.

When you’re hustling and in the groove, it can be hard to remember to take a break until all of a sudden you’re exhausted and can’t go a step further. It’s actually a lot more productive to take breaks at intervals so that you have a chance to recharge. It worked out well for us to […]

Behind the Scenes: Men Should Kill Spiders & Bugs


I am a very resourceful and independent woman by nature. It’s a good thing I’m married, or I’d probably be one of those women that you can just tell has something to prove. The truth is, I’m MORE than happy to be a girl and take on some stereotypical characteristics. I don’t like killing spiders […]

Behind the Scenes: Amish CIA?!


This week the plot thickened with our Amish store mystery. My mom is convinced they just know me, but I really don’t understand how. We also had a cool speaker at our church over the weekend, and he spoke some prophecies over David & me, which we may share at some point, I don’t know. […]

The Day We Turned Down 2.5 Million Dollars


So I got this phone call one day saying we won 2.5 million dollars from PCH. And this one time, back in the day, I did fill out some information. I forget why, but so it didn’t seem completely far-fetched. I’ve always wondered how PCH knew the people were home before delivering the money – who knows, […]
