Three ways NOT to date your spouse

I double checked myself in the mirror before walking back out. Murmurs of friends, families and couples drifted through the walls. I tucked loose strands of hair behind my ears, wiped away mascara smudges, took a deep breath and set myself to walk back out with a different mindset.

Husband and I were on a date.

I had been looking forward to the date all week. It had been quite some time...

Top Ten Most Read Posts for 2016

I get a kick looking at the past year. I like those little videos Facebook makes to capture your year. I enjoy seeing the most liked posts of my friends on Instagram. Even though, if I think about it too much, it's a little creepy, I still like to reminisce about the past year.

And for my Only a Season Mamas, I love seeing what you guys kept coming back for on our site to get your mom tip...

20 + Tips from Real Moms on What to Do when You have a Newborn and a Toddler

We are having our second child in March and will be bringing home our new little addition to the family while having a 20 month old running around. I am excited, nervous, and a little scared.

Thankfully, I am not the...

Reasons to Get Excited about Christmas Ornaments in November

I don’t know about you but when I walk through Walmart and they have the Halloween and fall stuff starting to fill the shelves in August, I begin to get anxiety. I get anxious because then I start thinking about everything that I will eventually need to do to get ready for the upcoming holidays. Honestly, I can’t think of many reasons to celebrate the holidays so early just yet.

Five 80s Movies You Need to Watch for Back to School

When I am starting to get that itch for fall, I have a few movies in my stash that I pull out just for this time of year. When peppermint candles burn in my house and garland adorns our mantel, I pull out my favorite Christmas movies. Spring in the air? I've got a movie for that. It's sort of a tradition really. I do this with music too. And food. Can't forget food. Hot dogs. All the hot dogs...

78 Songs That Should Be on Your Summer Playlist

 

My back is damp as I lean forward in my seat. My shirt pulls away from the leather and I hang my arm out the window. There's something freeing when you are driving 55mph on a country highway and the windows are down and you brave the wind with your torpedo hair flapping out the window.

If you would have been out in the middle of nowhere-Iowa this weekend, you probably would have seen...

I remember when we were trying to get pregnant, my husband and I were incredibly aware of parents walking around with their kids.
