Welcome To Monster High

This post is sponsored by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.  All opinions expressed are 100% my own. One of the main reasons the YUMMommy household proudly supports the Monster High brand and series is because each movie (and book) always seems to have a positive message or lesson for kids.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:  These aren’t your average ghouls!  As a parent, I find it comforting that Moo is learning about more than being fashionable from her  ...

Adventures In Homeschooling

  This Summer we really enjoyed spending long days at the pool and our month long vacation at my mom’s in July.  However, as the start of the school year got closer and closer, I couldn’t help the waves of anxiety that washed over me.  I had a choice to make.  For a while I had been praying as well as weighing the pros and cons of whether to enroll JJ into traditional school with his sister or to put on my teachers hat and teach him at home (homeschool).

Organic Crispy Bacon Aged Cheddar Shells & Veggies Bowl

Around here it’s no secret that my favorite room to live in is my kitchen.  Cooking is an art that speaks to my soul.  I love the whole process of experimenting with new recipes and creating delicious dishes.  What I love even more is making sure that those dishes feature healthy, clean and mostly organic ingredients.  This week I’m super excited that I got to partner with one of my favorite brands, Annie’s Homegrown, to create a recipe that is not only delicious and  ...

Thankful Thursday

#52BooksIn2016 | June Reads & Faves

Disclosure:  This post contains affiliate links. OMG y’all, I can’t believe I forgot to recap our June reads and faves.  This post has been sitting in my drafts.  Being down at my mom’s last month without any internet really threw off my blogging schedule.  Better late than never, right?  Anyways, we set a goal of reading 100 books for Summer (June – August) and didn’t do too shabby thus far. We read a total of 49 books in June.  We almost knocked out half of  ...

Thankful Thursday

Happy Thankful Thursday everyone!  Can you believe it’s August already?!  Dear Summer Break, where did you go?  Please come back because I’m not ready for the school year to start yet.  I mean I’m positively prepared for the first day and all, but I just want a little bit more time of sleeping in and being able to jet off to my mom’s on a whim.   Seriously though can we push school back to like the middle of September? Enough lamenting over the end of Summer Break,  ...
