Feeding A Family On A Budget


Life of Leigh

There was a time in my life that I went to three different grocery stores just to get ALL the deals!  Grocery shopping used to be an event for me.  I shopped around. Then, grocery stores starting having price matching and digital deals.  So, I could go to maybe just two stores.   That time is […]

All I Want For Mother’s Day Is To Not Worry


Life of a Mom

I didn’t want to do this. I had no intention on making a Mother’s Day post. No intention on forcing a few hundred words on paper just because it’s a holiday and that’s what bloggers do. But this one hit different. Yes, we are home with our children now more than before. We have to […]

What To Watch On Disney Plus


Life of a Mom

And, their mom is just as excited. If you’re an 80’s baby these shows and movies on Disney Plus will take you right […]

Free Online Courses To Take While Quarantined


Life of Leigh

Although I’m still working during Rona, weekends are different. We’re still bound by our four walls. There’s a meme going around that says something like if you don’t come our of this quarantine with a new skill, etc. then you never lacked time, you lack discipline. I couldn’t disagree more. I don’t think it’s a […]

Netflix can become a rabbit hole of searching for something to watch. Well, search no more. I’ve got 5 binge-worthy Netflix shows to watch during social distancing.   The Crown I’m late […]

Working During Rona


Life of a Professional

In my head I could use this time to do things that I usually have to do at night and weekends. Here’s the problem with that: I’m still working…in the office.  I’m working during Rona. I’m not, at this point, able to work from home. While I do work in HR, I work in an […]

Keep That Same New Decade Energy


Life of Leigh

It’s March. We’re almost at the end of the first quarter of the first year of this decade. I don’t know how many posts I saw on Instagram and Facebook about this new decade.

Seven Good Money Habits for Kids


Life of a Mom

My son’s wallet stays in two places. On his nightstand or in my purse. Whenever he gets any money he puts it straight in his wallet. Very seldom does he take it when we go out. He has no reason to need any money. But when he does, it goes straight in my purse. Safe […]

Unexpected Displays of Kindness


Life of Leigh

I was in a meeting at work, a pretty important one, when I got a “call me” text. I excused myself to the hallway to hear on the other end “I’m at the ER with your mom”.  Then, I left that very important meeting for something far more important. My mom.  For the next week […]
