Each week has it's fair share of tasks, projects, and a seemingly endless to-do list. Also, many days I have to leave the house multiple times to get things accomplished. Some days grocery shopping is on the to-do list and on other days getting the kids to the doctor is first on the list. There…

The Only 3 Things Your Pet REALLY Needs

Since the young age of 6 weeks old, our Maltese, Kipsy Behr, has been a part of the Holliday family. I say "little" because he was so tiny when we brought him home. One time, he actually fell into his bowl of food. Ha! We always laugh when we think about that memory. He was…

Mama’s Southern Fried Pork Chops

This meal came from being inspired in the kitchen. Honestly, I don't normally place food on top of each other, but I couldn't help this one. Plating the food right next to each other wouldn't have been as visually-appealing as placing it all on top of each other. So that's what I did and I'm so…
