Simple Romantic Valentine’s Day

Disclaimer: A Proverbs 31 Wife uses Affiliate links and ads to support this site. Read full disclosure here.

I love the IDEA of Valentines. But hate the commercialization part of it. I’ve basically told hubby that flowers anytime are welcome but I don’t expect him to try to keep up with all the unnecessary expectations. That being said, I do love a simple romantic valentine’s date.  Today’s guest blogger Brittany is sharing her idea for a homestyle simple romantic valentine’s date. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and so it’s time to start planning out a special […]

How to Freezer Cook with Your Favorite Recipes!

Disclaimer: A Proverbs 31 Wife uses Affiliate links and ads to support this site. Read full disclosure here.

I’ve never really freezer-cooked before, most plans didn’t suit me and it looked huge. Then I found OAMM. Today I’m sharing how to freezer cook with your favorite recipes and how I did it in just a day. Most of the freezer meals I see on Pinterest aren’t allergy friendly or just contain ingredients I don’t use. I’ve also felt they were quite confusing and it just didn’t make a lot of sense. Often I would stick to making large batches […]

Embracing the Crazy Now!

Disclaimer: A Proverbs 31 Wife uses Affiliate links and ads to support this site. Read full disclosure here.

Ever looked around you and realized things were a bit crazy? Lately I’ve been thinking that it’s time to begin embracing the crazy now! You see, things aren’t always going to be like this. In fact, it’s likely things are going to become a lot MORE crazy before they start calming down. I have ONE kid right now and think it’s crazy. You mammas with 5 and 6 kids are probably laughing and well you should! I love my current […]

Surprising things Frugal People do

Disclaimer: A Proverbs 31 Wife uses Affiliate links and ads to support this site. Read full disclosure here.

I definitely consider myself a frugalista and thrive on saving money. But there are a few surprising things frugal people do that you may not know about. Being frugal doesn’t always mean never spending money, nor does it mean keeping all your cash in envelopes. Just like we are all different in personalities, frugal people are different in ways they save. However, there is one thing all frugal people have in common. A Goal.  Whether that goal is to retire early, […]

Don’t be Sorry, and Suffering Friends

Disclaimer: A Proverbs 31 Wife uses Affiliate links and ads to support this site. Read full disclosure here.

Hello dear readers and welcome back to another Living Proverbs 31 and blessings on your new week! Let me tell you guys, I’m getting anxious and excited all at the same time. Due date for baby boy number 2 is Feb 20th, but the ICP that I had with my first has returned (mildly so far) and an earlier induction is more than likely. So, there could be another baby around here in just a couple of weeks! I have mixed feelings over […]

Rediscovering Purpose and Intent

Rediscovering purpose and intent is sponsored by Vocalpoint and Life Reimagined. All opinions are my own. When I started this blog nearly 4 years ago, my goal was to somehow use blogging to supplement my hubby’s income and help support our dream of a country home. Writing is my passion (one of them that is) and the idea that I could be a stay at home mom, help supplement our income and stay somewhat connected with the world outside our house […]

Late Night Savings Found!

Disclaimer: Late Night Savings Found is sponsored by Scott and Dollar General. Dear friends and fellow mammas in the trench, the other night we had a near disaster. You know the kind. Where it’s been a busy week (okay who am I kidding, MONTH) and somehow you messed up big time. You forgot something of vital importance and disaster is just one “sit” away. You walk into the bathroom and see this. Now, that isn’t the near disaster. Unfortunately that […]

Hold Fast to the Truth

Disclaimer: A Proverbs 31 Wife uses Affiliate links and ads to support this site. Read full disclosure here.

Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 1 Thessalonians 5:21 What do you do in a world gone mad? A few weeks ago we talked a little about truth and asked who we could trust. It’s a hard question to answer outside of simply trusting our creator. Paul tells us to hold fast to that which is good and to prove all things. What does it mean to Prove? To establish truth by presentation of evidence To demonstrate […]

Track Your Spending for Financial Success

Disclaimer: A Proverbs 31 Wife uses Affiliate links and ads to support this site. Read full disclosure here.

Do you track your spending? Do you know why it’s important? Having used a money tracking program for years, I know first-hand why you should track your spending. At the beginning of each month I am able to clearly see what I expect to come in and what is scheduled to go out for bills. One glance shows me what I can reasonably expect to have for spending on gas, groceries and every other thing that’s necessary in caring for […]

Start the Year Right with Free Cleaning Supplies!

Who likes free stuff? You? Me too! Now you can start the year right with free cleaning supplies! Yes. You heard me right. Free cleaning supplies! I’ve talked about how much I love ePantry before and apparently I’m not alone. Most people who start buying from ePantry continue buying and ePantry knows it. However making the decision to shop a little differently is a challenge for some (it was for me) and ePantry is making it even easier on you. From now until Sunday […]

Elderberry Gummy Vitamins

Disclaimer: A Proverbs 31 Wife uses Affiliate links and ads to support this site. Read full disclosure here.

A few months ago I made a new batch of elderberry syrup and I turned half of it into elderberry gummy vitamins. After sharing a photo of them on Instagram and Facebook I had a lot of requests for my recipe. Honestly, my elderberry syrup recipe is pretty simple and elderberry gummy vitamins just need one more ingredient to take them from syrup to gummies. Why make gummies? Good question since most kids will take down elderberry syrup without batting an […]

Shower Spa Bombs – Make your Shower a Spa Experience!

Disclaimer: A Proverbs 31 Wife uses Affiliate links and ads to support this site. Read full disclosure here.

I’ve been seeing these shower spa bombs on Pinterest and really wanted to give them a try. They all seemed to have the same basic instructions, mix soda and water and dry. Time to give them a try! Some instructions said to mix the oils in with the soda water, others said to add the oils after drying the “pucks”. Some recipes said air dry for 24 hours, others said to dry in the oven. After a bit of experimentation […]

Choosing a Negative Word of the Year? +Linkup!

Disclaimer: A Proverbs 31 Wife uses Affiliate links and ads to support this site. Read full disclosure here.

Choosing a word for the year isn’t something I’ve ever done. And choosing a negative word of the year? Well that just sounds crazy! But I’ve done both. I’ve given it some thought and decided that I did want to choose a word for the year, but the word I came up with is a far cry from my normal positive thought process. I thought about choosing Joy. We all need joy in our lives. Other words under consideration were […]

2015 Recap – 2016 Plans!

Disclaimer: A Proverbs 31 Wife uses Affiliate links and ads to support this site. Read full disclosure here.

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. Philippians 3:13 As we are reaching the end of the year, it’s common to look back at what was, and forward to what will be. Caught in the middle of two different time frames, we often have regrets, joys, unrealistic ideals and big plans. I’m not any different. There are things […]

This post- Vitamin C Gummy Recipe has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MeAndMyTea #CollectiveBias One thing Jason and I have always reached for at the first sign of a cold is VitC. As an immune booster it’s one of our go-tos every-time. Last winter Kolton still received most of his nutrients through my milk so I counted my VitC dosage for him too. Now he’s a toddler and needs his own VitC. But yipes! […]
