K.I.S.S. of the Week

    Simplicity | The Everyday Simple

    1. To Eat: So I am not usually a fan of “freeze-ahead” meals, only because I don’t think they taste as good, but this spaghetti is divine. Not only is it easy to make in bulk, delicious, and a crowd pleaser, but it freezes and reheats like a champ.
    2. To Know: AmazonSmile is an amazing resource for the holidays. Use this, and you get all the same Amazon prices, but the difference is, .5% will go to your charity of choice.
    3. To Buy: Anyone with a camera needs this. It will make your life 200x easier, and allow you to share those photos that you always “meant” to upload.
    4. To Read: Needing to read this before the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Take a little time to put things into perspective and get priorities in order.
    5. To Use: It’s like Costco, but online with free shipping. Bulk orders sent straight to your door.
    6. To Style: Want to amp up your closet, but don’t trust yourself or have time to go shopping? This company has it all figured out. Top quality clothes you love as frequently as you want.
    7. To Change: Stop using dryer sheets, and just get these. Reusable, natural, and energy saving.
    8. To Do: This site is great for those dreary fall days where you are stuck inside. It’s especially fun over the holidays when you have family in town! Great way to play and spend time together, without the television on.
    9. To Drink: The perfect Thanksgiving dinner drink to please all of your guests.
    10. To Download: This app not only let’s you book and reserve tables at restaurants in your area instantly, but you also earn points every time you book with it and get free food!
    11. To Remember: “Speak to your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful and magical humans on earth, for what they believe is what they will become.” ―Brooke Hampton

    1. To Eat: This site is the perfect resource if you are looking for “healthy alternatives for foods you love”.
    2. To Know: Never leave your clothes to stain again. This cheat sheet is everything. Print it out and put it in your laundry room.
    3. To Buy: Start automating your life today, and never have to vacuum again.
    4. To Read: This is the perfect book to explain pregnancy to your children. It is a month by month guide, with beautiful illustrations that break it down to help make sense of it all.
    5. To Use: Natural deodorant that is not only safe, but actually works.
    6. To Style: As if we needed another reason to go to Target. This line will be redecorating women’s houses and cleaning out men’s wallets everywhere.
    7. To Change: Quality, affordable, daily contacts sent straight to your door every month. Try them for a month free and see for yourself.
    8. To Do: This is an awesome post to help in planning Thanksgiving. Number 3 even helps you know how much food and drink you’ll need depending on your guest count!
    9. To Drink: This is officially my new favorite fall drink. Make it at home or order it out, but it’s absolute perfection.
    10. To Download: This app not only reminds you when people’s birthdays are, but it helps you create and send a postcard to them within 5 minutes. Never be embarrassed about forgetting someone’s birthday again.
    11. To Remember: “The trees are about to show us how lovely it is to let things go.”

    So, this is definitely a more personal post than I usually post, but I couldn’t see a way around it. Not with the month that we have.

So, with two big personal celebrations coming up, it didn’t feel right to pass by without something a little bit more personal.  Read more

    “Peace is always right here, we just have to create space for it.” – Carol Tuttle

    This quote is one that I agree with wholeheartedly. No matter what is swirling all around us, even when we are in the midst of complete chaos, we can find peace if we create space for it. Sometimes that means figuratively, but that can mean literally as well. A space where you feel comfortable and at ease. Read more
