Tips on Answering {Awkward} Questions Once Your Child Can Read

The Reading Dilemma: A Mommy {and Daddy} Cab Discussion

A couple weeks ago, I began my new blog series, called, "Mommy Cab Discussions" where I share talks that I have with my son in the car.  Some of those talks are funny while some are serious but they're always interesting and I constantly learn something new.  I'm thankful for the opportunity to have these talks during our small window of time among a usually chaotic day.  Today's Mommy Cab Discussion is meant to be on the humorous side since it's based on a recent discussion that was awkward but funny.  It actually originated from a "Daddy Cab Discussion"....all because my son can now read!

Breakfast at Tiffany's Frozen Party Ideas

Breakfast at Tiffany's-Frozen

Party Ideas

Mother-Daughter Birthday {Mash Up}

My daughter and I have birthdays that are a little over a week apart.  This year she was so excited to have a birthday party since she's old enough to know what's going on and she saw how much fun her brother had at his Lego Star Wars Party.  We figured that since both our birthdays are close together and a party can be such a hassle to put together, we might as well combine our birthday celebration into one.  Therefore, I combined one of her favorite things, "Frozen," and a favorite of mine, "Breakfast at Tiffany's."  Ta-da!  A Frozen-Breakfast at Tiffany's Birthday Party Mash Up was born!

Bacon Shrimp Cheese Rolls

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles


Bacon, Shrimp, Cheese...All in One


Pillsbury, Breakfast, Lunch

Two of my favorite food are bacon and shrimp.  I love finding new recipes to eat them with and that's just what happened one day recently.  I had some Pillsbury pizza crust that I needed to use so I went ahead and threw these ingredients together along with some cheese and a bit of a spicy sauce since I was craving something a little spicy, too.  It was quick, easy and filling, something I'll be making again!

#AskAwayFriday with Megan at The Patchwork Paisley

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles



Welcome to another Ask Away Friday!  It's been a crazy week around here with first my hubby getting sick then my two little ones.  It's always hard watching your kids be anything but happy and healthy.  I've been trying to just sit with them more and tend to them this week.  I'm excited to be able to exchange questions with a new buddy for this week's Ask Away Friday.  Ask Away Friday is when two bloggers swap a set of ten questions and they each answer the questions on their own blogs.  It's a fun way to get to know other bloggers and for your readers to learn more about you, too.

DIY Homemade Liquid Hand Soap and Free Printables


A couple months ago, I tried this DIY liquid hand soap recipe that I saw on Pinterest (I apologize for not including the link to that, I can't find it on my Pinterest boards now...grrr).  I did modify it a little, however, and have been happy with the results so far.  I'm always experimenting, though, so if I find a better way to do this, I will update this post!  If you would like to save money on liquid hand soap, this recipe would be worth a try to help out your wallet!

How to Make Homemade Doughnuts Using Pillsbury Biscuits and Giveaway

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles


Easy Doughnut Recipe Using Pillsbury Grand Biscuit Rolls


We may be late to learning how to make this but in case you are, too, I wanted to share this easy doughnut recipe.  This past weekend, my hubby made quick, easy and tasty homemade doughnuts!  He's been wanting to make them for awhile, I'm sure he saw it somewhere but I forgot to ask him.  I'm happy to see he has been more enthusiastic to cook as the years go on just in case I go on vacation or something and he and the kids have to fend for themselves. ;) Since he used Pillsbury, I checked to see if a similar recipe was on their website and there is.  These made for a great breakfast that we all enjoyed.  The kids couldn't get enough of it... next time, we'll have to buy at least two cans of the biscuits!
