Traveling with Kids & Rug-Ed

We are a military family. But you already know that. Unless you’re new here, in which case, Hi! Welcome to the circus! I’m Jamie and most of the time, I have no idea what I’m doing. But back to military life, (which is just one of the acts in this three-ring-circus).  Military life comes with […]

Reducing Screen Time

If you’ve been following our family for awhile, you may know that we made some big changes a little over a year ago. I’m not talking about moving to England. I’m not talking about following the prompting to homeschool either. I’m talking about our shift from a screen-indulgent family to a (mostly) screen-free family. Let’s […]

Tess’ Bedroom

2 bedroom posts in one month? Why not? I haven’t posted much on my blog in the last (crazy, overseas-moving, military living) 6 months of life – but why not throw up two bedroom reveals within weeks of each other? Listen, I don’t make the rules of blogging. I also don’t live by them. Don’t […]

Halloween 2021

Halloween has come and gone again! Once again, I homemade our costumes! … Once again, I procrastinated the crap out of the project and was maniacally sewing all hours of the night until Halloweve. But, once again, the pictures are worth the hours of sewing and £100 of fabric …. Seriously, what is wrong with […]

Like, all the time.  Moving a lot means redecorating, over and […]

Easy Delicious Wheat Bread

6 years ago, after graduating from BYU, my husband’s career in the Air Force began. We, along with our toddler and newborn, moved away from Utah to the other side of The United States. Away from family, friends, and everything familiar. I was so excited for the adventure (and the beach, duh.) I learned a […]

First Months in England

Wow. Just wow. I’ve procrastinated this post a bit because of how tricky it will be to condense it! Campbell’s could teach me a thing or two about condensing. I’m not good at it. Just ask Delta airlines how many suitcases we brought with us on our flights to The UK … 12. The answer […]

PCS Express Shipment

I appreciate the fact that this blog post may only be pertinent to a portion of my audience, but nevertheless, y’all asked so I am delivering! I asked on my Instagram a few weeks ago WHAT the heck to include in our UAB. For those of you who are not military and are reading this, […]

Homeschool Room + Pilot Pens

Welcome to my blog in 2020. If you are reading this in the future, please refer to Google for 2020’s timeline of events (don’t get too lost in the 2020 meme section of the internet). Baskets / Rug / Chairs / Paper Organizer 2020 has brought a lot of changes and forks in the road. […]

BTS with Famous Footwear

It’s BTS season! And no, I don’t mean the season for the K-pop band (although I am totally down with the BTS crew).  I mean Back To School!  Back To School season is looking mightttty different this year folks. I know you know. We all know. The world has gone cray-cray. To try and maintain […]
