Norwex 101

Nov 19, 2018
I'm sure you've noticed several Norwex posts I've shared recently and wondered, "What is Norwex?" Well I'm glad you asked! :)



I am an Independent Sales Consultant with Norwex, and I absolutely love my job! But, I am not a salesperson! I became a Norwex consultant after only using the products for 2 weeks. I absolutely fell in love with them because of how healthy, super simple, quick, and amazingly clean they make my home.


Fall/Winter Seasonal Recipes

Nov 1, 2018
November is here which means cooler days, and cozy Fall comfort foods. Crockpot recipes, and baked goodies are now on our weekly menu, as I've begun to fill my shopping cart with pears, hardy greens, sweet potatoes, and winter squash.

November Seasonal Recipes

I’m editing several new recipe posts that my husband and I really enjoyed, to share with you all soon. In the meantime I’m sharing some family favorite seasonal recipes, as well as a few new recipes I am looking forward to trying. Most fruits and vegetables are available year-round, but if you buy them in season they not only have more flavor and nutrients, but are also cheaper.

Pumpkin Mug Cake

Nothing says Fall like pumpkin, so it's the perfect time to introduce you to one of my favorite Fall treats, Pumpkin Spice Mug Cake. I love pumpkin ANYTHING, but one of my absolute favorites is pumpkin cake. That sweet, cinnamon-y scent wafting through the house as it bakes is so intoxicating!

How to make the best Pumpkin Spice Latte at home, just like Starbucks, only better!

Home Sweet Homestead: Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

I'm sure you're all familiar with Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. The one that's only available during specific times of the year. They recently started offering it again, and it got me thinking about making my own version at home. I happily found out that it isn't that hard to make, and I'm able to enjoy this yummy drink whenever I want to now.

I’m Back to Blogging!

Sep 10, 2018
Can you all believe there are less than four months left in 2018?! It’s been a year since I pressed the pause button on my blog last September. At that time I didn’t know when, or if, I would ever come back to blogging. I had started two new businesses, and was super busy getting them off the ground. One of them failed unfortunately, but the other one has done fairly well and I am very thankful for that.


But, my original love of blogging was never far from my thoughts and I missed it. So when I recently received an email from an old blogging friend, that she was going to have her yearly Choctoberfest event, and asked if I'd like to participate again, I realized just HOW MUCH I had missed blogging, and jumped at the chance to start again!
