I partnered with Scotch® Brand today to share a fun Scandinavian gift wrap tutorial and help my son plan and give to some children in need.

Saving Money with the Raise App

Saving Money With The Raise App | I absolutely love using Raise.com an app that allows me to buy gift cards at significant discounts! Find out how we purchased a brand new dishwasher at 40% off due to discounts, including Raise! |www.elizabethave.com

I’m excited to tell you a little money saving story involving the Raise App. I love those type of stories (and this is not a sponsored post, just a love affair, haha).

Library Day: The Little Prince | This is a wonderful story of Imagination and never growing up, perfect for the whole family. | www.elizabethave.com

Happy Halloween! If you’re like my family growing up, Halloween was not a huge event. We actually loved laying low for the night with lights out so that no trick-o-treaters would stop by.

Anyone else, haha, or were we the only Halloween Grinches?

We often had a fun movie night as a family or with just a few friends. So if you don’t have a big night planned, may I suggest a Netflix movie you’ll love?

I realized though, that there are two key components to the success of my mom schedule: good timing, and healthy living. Together those things help me power through a lot of projects and work, cooking and cleaning, playtime and preschool. So today I’m sharing with you a bit of a “day in the life of Elizabeth” schedule and some tips I’ve learned to implement those two key components.
