For the past seven years, like a lot of working families, we have been paying at least $600/month for preschool and/or childcare. And now, as this school year is rapidly coming to a close, I am faced with the exciting fact that in 4 short months I . . .
Congratulations! You successfully passed the VIPKID interview (not yet? click here for that post...). So what's next?! To the VIPKID Mock Class you go! Just like the interview, you will receive the lesson ahead of time and some tips on how to . . .
I attempted to start a blog approximately 435,045 times before feeling like I actually got it right. I knew there were plenty of books to read and research to be done, but they always seemed to be about increasing traffic, how to sell your . . .
So now that you know ALL about VIPKID (from this post), and you're beyond-ready to change your life by making $18-22/hour teaching from your couch (in your pajama pants!)... What's next?! The VIPKID interview demo lesson (and then the mock . . .
As you may know, I really love Etsy. I have purchased custom products from Etsy since I was in college and have been a seller since 2015. However....you know what Etsy is missing? Instant gratification. You know, Amazon Prime kind of . . .
Our family doesn't "sit around" very well. Jocelyn is at the dance studio 5-6 days a week, Phil works 6-day work weeks almost every week, and Henry gets toted around with the rest of us. So, when we have several days of down time, we get stir . . .
Ever since I started sharing about my experience teaching from home, I get a lot of questions regarding a VIPKID Review - Is it legit or a scam? Is it For Real!? For me, it was a life-changing job move, so allow me to answer some of your . . .
It has been about 3 months since I got hired and started teaching from home with VIPKid (click here to read about how/why I got started), so I wanted to give an update. So here it is: It's amazing and I LOVE IT. I could not be more thankful and . . .
It has been several months since I finished working on my most perfect smile and I'm still loving the results - so here is my straight teeth at home update!! If you missed the previous post, here's the story: In January 2016, I started looking into . . .
Some posts and pictures need lots of words, explanations, and intros. And others...well...no words are needed. However, if you aren't familiar with how this little house began its remodeling adventure...you MUST see its "before" pictures here! It . . .
I grew up in a very Southern Baptist home. Church and God were our top priorities in life and much of our decisions and life choices revolved around this. I taught Sunday school, my parents both volunteered and/or worked in the church, and I . . .
I was a teacher for 8 years - I spent four years in the public schools and four in a community-based setting. While there were plenty of things I loved about teaching in the classroom, there were also plenty of things that I realized weren't working . . .
There's often a dilemma when you go to list your house for sale. You know it'll sell faster if everything is fresh and updated, but that costs money...and....aren't you trying to sell your house to get money out of it, not put more money in? . . .
When I was pregnant with my daughter, I gained almost 70 pounds. I went from 130 pounds to weighing 196 on the day she was born...and I'm only 5'0" tall! I have never had an unhealthy diet, but I certainly enjoyed my share of convenience foods - . . .
We were contracted by homeowners to completely renovate their new little weekend getaway home on the Chickahominy River. At 535 sq/ft, it certainly qualifies as a tiny house renovation! While the homeowners wanted to create as much functional space . . .
I have disliked my teeth for as long as I can remember. It started as soon as my top two permanent teeth came in. They were mottled and discolored due to fluorosis (a side effect of too much childhood fluoride) and a significant overbite only . . .
This bathroom was your typical 1990s contractor-grade, character-less master bath. It had certainly served its purpose for 20+ years, but the homeowners were ready for something that felt more like a spa, a personal retreat, and a peaceful way to . . .
I didn't know whether I should cry or laugh when I found this place on the internet. This lady, her story, and her restaurant pretty much sums up so much of what I want to tell people every day. I know this is long, but if you are questioning your . . .
When people find out I have a food allergy, the number one question I here next is, "So what happens when you eat it?" For me it really varies, but thankfully none of them are extremely severe. First - a little FYI - the severity of an allergy . . .
When my cousin and his wife recently had a wedding-redo for local family and friends, they asked my sister and I to be the honorary wedding (redo) planners. We discovered long ago that we make an excellent event-planning team, since I love all . . .
