Hey y’all! Here’s a quick collection of some SUPER random things I have found on shopping adventures recently – wanted to share some possible holiday wardrobe + gift ideas! Does your family take pictures every year for the holidays? What kind of outfits do you guys wear?
In the end, however you choose to feed your baby is right. It’s your decision. Don’t be bullied into thinking that breastfeeding is the only way or the wrong way, and same for formula feeding. Ya never know, this might be your first lesson in parenting: rolling with the punches, like it was for me.
Have you ever wanted something so much and thought about it endlessly, that when it finally is time for that thing to take place, and it doesn’t happen like you imagined or dreamed, you just feel like curling up and going back to sleep?
I’ve talked previously about the attempt to nurse my first and only, Josie, from day one. To recap, or if you haven’t read my previous blog (read it here) about why I care about helping moms – she just wouldn’t latch. Not kind of, not at all. My overwhelming love for her made her mad or something, I don’t know, and the doctors/nurses didn’t know either. We eventually got the hang of it with one another and I have breastfed her through 15 months old, so dreams do come true y’all. Keep on Reading!

A couple things to note about this recipe!
- You can really make it your own by adding whatever dry ingredients and/or candy you want. Some suggestions: bagel chips, almonds or other nuts, raisins, Reese’s Pieces, butterscotch chips, cheez-its, etc.
- The seasoning measurements below provide a pretty light flavor. If you like extreme flavor, be sure to ramp it up!
10 cups of dry ingredients, I used:
- 3 cups rice cereal squares
- 3 cups corn cereal squares
- 1 cup dry roasted peanuts
- 3 cups pretzels
½ cup apple cider
½ cup butter
½ cup coconut oil
⅓ cup worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp garlic powder
½ Tbsp onion powder
2 tsp salt
Turn your slow cooker on high.
Add all your dry ingredients, butter, and coconut oil.
Stir to cover all the pieces.
Add seasonings and all other ingredients.
Stir again to ensure all pieces have been covered.
Cook in slow cooker for 3 hours, stirring at least once or twice during that time.
Spread the mixture out on parchment paper or baking sheet.
Heat oven to 350° F. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool.
Pour all of the chex mix in a gallon size ziploc and add your candy.
Shake and enjoy! 🙂
The most common reaction I was getting from people when I told them about our trip to Mexico: “wait, you’re taking Josie?” Lil Bit goes wherever we take her. Have babe, will travel. Keep on Reading!

You sure make it look like a blast!
So let’s take it all in stride. You are the best mama you can be, and I’m the best mama I can be. We run the world and nobody can take that away from us.
I’m not any busier that any other mom. I sometimes get to shower and sometimes I don’t. I sometimes get to work out and sometimes I don’t. My hair is done, maybe, two days out of the week. Do I want to do these things? Sure, every single day, I want to. But I’m not having an emotional breakdown about it. Guess what? You shouldn’t either. Keep on Reading!
