Mom Spot: Time Saving Tip Tuesday

I love themes! It's why I love planning parties, decorating my house, or planting a garden. It gives me a chance to create a theme and go wild. So here comes one more theme to Mom In Progress: Time Saving Tip Tuesdays!

Mommas, if there is one thing we are always short on it's patience.... I mean, time. Maybe both. Anyway, I'm dedicating Tuesday mornings to inspiring you with a new time saving tip! Today I'm starting with a tip I heard years ago from my favorite foodie, Rachael Ray.

Always wash your veggies as soon as you get home from the grocery store.

When you wash all of your produce (berries should be washed right before you use them, but most others fit this rule), it saves you tons of time when you're ready to make a meal or have a snack. In fact, I've taken this a step further and will wash and slice things like celery and carrots so that it's ready for a quick, healthy snack - just as easy as pulling a bag of pretzels out of the cupboard. I'll also chop extra onion when I'm prepping for one meal so that I don't have to torture myself again later in the week.

Come back every Tuesday and see how you can be inspired to save even more time!

Give Thanks: Part 4

KEEP READING FOR A GREAT SCENTSY GIVEAWAY! There is so much to be thankful for, it really is hard to decide what will make these next few posts... but today is an ode to my husband. If there is one thing he loves, it's great smells. Although great smells come from great cooking, they also come from great candles. Now with kids around candles can feel a little risky, but then came Scentsy . This is a "flameless" candle which is actually kind of a throw back to the scented wax warmers that used a candle. No candles here, just plug in the warmer and the small light bulb does all the work. I'm a fan of the nightlight sized warmers, but the larger Scentsy warmers are quite lovely. Browse the entire Holiday Collection to find the one perfect for your home or start thinking about gift giving - the combinations are endless! And look at this festive warmer of the month (10% off): But now we need to talk about fragrance! Silver Bells is the fragrance of the month (als

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic. "Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration." Click HERE to read the entire post - you have to see the photographs! You'll also find all kinds of topics on sustainable and simple living. Enjoy!

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you. 16  Preserve me, O God, for in you I  take refuge. 2  I say to the  Lord , “You are my Lord;      I have no good apart from you.” 3  As for  the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,      in whom is all my delight. 4  The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;      their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out      or  take their names on my lips. 5  The  Lord  is  my chosen portion and my  cup;      you hold my  lot. 6  The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;      indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7  I bless the  Lord  who  gives me counsel;      in  the night also my  heart instructs me. 8  I have  set the  Lord  always before me;      because he is at my  right hand, I shall not be  shaken. 9  Therefore my heart is glad, and my  whole being rejoices;      my
