Let’s be reasonable and add an eighth day to the week that is devoted exclusively to reading. – Lena Dunham

A book nerd at heart, but a mom on the go… I’ve always got a book with me. Some good, and some not so good. I’m sharing my finds for autobiographies, kids’ books, books to help you organize your life and even a gorgeous adult coloring book to help you unwind and destress.

Minecraft: The Island review

Minecraft. Holy Hannah. I’ve really tried to keep up with all my daughter’s digital pursuits but this one… Oiy. I love that she is creating architectural landscapes based on homes she sees on HGTV, and even recreating Hogwarts Castle in this weirdly square world. I’m...

Review of Beth Moore’s The Undoing of Saint Silvanus

I will admit, I have never read anything by Beth Moore. I know she has a cadre of hard-core raving fans, but I haven't read a single book of hers. Until now.  And I probably wouldn't have if the Cupcake hadn't dragged me into random bookstore and Beth Moore's new...

Review: This Life I Live by Rory Feek

Seeing the news of Rory Feek’s grammy win this morning brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my heart. Sunday for Hymns That Are Important To Us was the last project of Joey + Rory, and the most meaningful. If you don’t know, Rory is one half of the famous country...

Is your home guest-ready?

Okay, I'll admit. I'm one of those who has a house that is a constant flurry of projects and activity. I love it when friends pop in, but let's face it. I wish they'd only do it on the days the maids come. If I know they are coming, I'd have to spend a --...

The Magnolia Story" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener">The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines with Mark Dagostino is out and I’ll admit to devouring it in 24 hours. As infectious as Fixer Upper is, I was relieved to find it's flavor seamlessly translated...

I met Bakerella. And I got a book signed for you.

Me and my bloggy friend Bianca (isn't she cute?) met up at Williams Sonoma because our baking idol was coming to town. And we were both sans little mini-me’s. That’s right. Two crafty moms flying solo to meet and greet none other than the infamous, BAKERELLA in the...
