When it comes to the daily routine and all things mom life, making things as simple s possible is a must. That goes for dinner time, mom style and even extracurriculars. ​​​​​​​​In this post, I’m sharing a few of the things that help keep life uncomplicated.

​​​​​​Mom Style

If I’m chauffeuring from school to piano, gymnastics or any after-school activity, I’m probably not dressed to the nines. If I’m visiting school for an event or activity, I’m more likely to be in jeans than something fussy. I know you fellow mamas can relate. We want simple and a tiny bit chic. But those casual moments can be hard to pin down.​​​​​​​

Luckily, I’ve found some affordable options that do the trick.

Cozy Sweaters

Because even though it’s 80 now, the cold front is coming! And I couldn’t be more excited.

Easy Boots & Booties

Low enough to take to a field day but still put together

Sheet Pan Dinners

Now that our kitchen renovation has brought us the joy of a working kitchen again (yay!), I’ve been more excited than ever to cook lately. I used to love making simple, easy sheet pan dinners because they’re like cooking for dummies and so delicious. I cooked this one a couple nights ago and it was a hit for everyone.

At Home

I’ve had a ton of deadlines this month and right in the midst of a big project, my iMac decided to give up. Talk about stressful! I had to bite the bullet and decided to get a new MacBook. Let me tell you, I’ve been LOVING working from all over my house and all over town, which I haven’t done in so long.

At home, I’ve been curled up on the couch or in this chair with this blanket. We have it in a few different colors and it’s so cozy! I know people rave over a certain luxury throw, but my $30 one just gets better with each wash.

Fuel Your School

Our piano instructor was out of town this week and I LOVED making up a lesson at home. (I’m not great at piano but I do know how to read music thanks to my days in the middle school band.) It really makes me appreciate all that teachers do to help our kids learn. I recently was introduced to DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that supports teachers by helping fund classroom materials at public schools – Emery’s school included!

I posted about this on Instagram: Chevron’s Fuel Your School program helps fund specific projects listed on the site – things like classroom reading libraries, musical instruments, balance balls to replace rigid seats and imaginative play for young minds.
