Lazy Sunday Crock Pot Pork Chops

I don't know about you but Sundays are lazy cooking days for me. 
We have church in the morning, and by the time we're out the kids are all starving (you know how it is). So, that means it's either out to eat, fast food, or something needs to be ready in the crock pot. One of my family's favorites are pork chops, and this recipe came about one morning as I scrambled around the house looking for good ingredients. 
I was a hit and has become a staple. As in, I probably make it once or twice a month. 
The flavor is rich and the pork chops just fall apart when they're ready to be served. Use the remaining sauce as a gravy over mashed potatoes, or add some biscuits and a salad, and you're good to go!

Test Your Knowledge- Orkin Giveaway! #BedBugFeud

This post and giveaway is sponsored by PartnersHub Family & Orkin

Okay y'all. I'm not going to lie. The idea of bed bug freaks me out, and it's not something I like to ponder often. And by often I mean ever. Ewww, right?
Thankfully, as much as my family travels, we've never had a real encounter with them. And I'd like to keep it that way.
But what do I really know about them other than they can be a big, big issue in a home?

XOXO Wall Art- Pottery Barn Knock-off

Do you decorate for Valentines Day? I do, minimally though because I always feel like I just put away my Christmas stuff, you know?
Each year I do try to add a little something new. Last year my favorite new piece was my 30 Minute Valentines Typography Art, and a few years before that was our Valentines Handprint Hearts my kiddos helped me make.
This year I found this great inspiration piece from Pottery Barn.

the REAL to-do list {January}

Are you a list maker? Oh my, I definitely am. I make a list of everything I need to get done for the week. There's a list for groceries, a list of appointments, a list of what I want to blog, a list of Etsy orders to work on, a list of books to read, a list of random chores to do beyond the normal everyday things, and so on. It's a little much sometimes, lol!

As 2015 rolled around and I found myself praying over the year to come, I felt like the Lord asked me "What should be on my real to-do list?" You know, the list of things to do that will make a lasting impression, that will build character in myself and in return my family, and the world around me. What should be on the real to-do list that will let the love of Christ shine through my everyday life?

Caramel Smothered SNICKERS® Soda Cake- A Seriously Sweet Big Game Recipe!

If your house is like mine during football playoff season, you've heard or seen just about every playoff game in sight, all leading up to that BIG GAME in February! While the football lovers chill in front of a big screen or two, I've got the perfect recipe for any homegating party. This caramel smothered SNICKERS® soda cake and caramel topping is so simple to make, but your guests will never know it because it tastes like you've been working on it for hours. Just beware, because you may not be able to get your guests with a sweet tooth out of your kitchen once your cake is ready. Yes, it's that good.

Fun Sized Candy Bar Fruit Dip- The Easiest Recipe for the Big Game!

Tis the season for football, everything leading up to that BIG GAME in February we know as the Super Bowl! 
I'm all about keeping it simple in the kitchen during our home viewing parties, or when traveling to friends homes to watch with them. 
I love a delicious recipe that's also so easy. This candy fruit dip is both. Make this the day ahead so all you have to do on game day is pull it out of the fridge and let your friends dive in.

The Song- by Chris Fabry

Even the wisest of men was a fool for love.

Some stories capture you from the beginning, and won't let you go until you walk it out to the end. The Song by Chris Fabry did just that. At first I wasn't sure if I even wanted to dive in and fall love the characters in this book, with an almost certainty that heartbreak would meet me if I did. So it sat unread for about two weeks before I decided to crack the cover. I had seen the trailer for the movie, after all, before I even knew there was book! I knew that Jed and Rose would capture my heart, and I didn't want to ache for them and watch them walk through hard times. But I did, and I stayed the course, and in the end it was worth it all.
