“How do you do it?”

As a mother of seven, I’m often asked how I manage our daily routine without going crazy. I started this blog to share our recipes, organizational tips, parenting advice, funny stories, and more.

I enjoy providing quality content that is both informative and entertaining. Our reader response has been very encouraging. I direct traffic to our site utilizing several social media outlets: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus, and Instagram. Each post is shared on multiple sites for maximum views. Our demographic is diverse: mothers of large families, homeschoolers, breastfeeding mothers, expectant mothers, fellow Christians, other bloggers, and many different foodie viewers from Pinterest interested in our recipes. Our readers are loyal and supportive of our site. Our site statistics continue to improve on a daily basis.

Our site receives over 90,000 page views each month. We have over 3,000 Facebook fans, 1,000 Twitter followers, 600 Instagram followers, and over 4,600 Pinterest followers. Our blog is relatively new. This site has been up and running since April 2013 and we’re amazed to have such great statistics right off the bat.

Advertising Prices

Space is limited to one large above-the-fold 728×90 leaderboard ad, one 160×600 sidebar skyscraper, and three 200×200 square ads for our sidebar to reduce clutter and give our advertisers the attention they deserve. 

  • Top Placement 728×90 Leaderboard ad: This above-the-fold ad is the first thing our viewers will see when visiting our site. Its placement is fixed, and when you purchase this ad space you will remain on the top of every page of our site. The top leaderboard ad is available for $100 a month. Ad code will need to be provided by your company for this premium ad.
  • 160×600 Sidebar Skyscraper ad: This is our longest ad available on our sidebar. As our viewers scroll through posts to read recipes and more, they’ll be able to view this ad for a larger portion of the post – giving your product or service more attention than our smaller ads. The sidebar skyscraper is available for $55 a month.
  • Sidebar ads: Small square ad space on our left sidebar is available for only $20 a month. These ads will feature your company logo and approximately 50-60 characters, as space allows. I can build these ads for you and proofs for approval will be emailed to you before publishing. If your company has advertising art or pre-made ads to use instead, that’s wonderful too. 

Advertising payments can be made through PayPal. Email to get started.

Sidebar Ad Examples:

*Above examples are slightly larger than sidebar space allows. Generally, sidebar ads are displayed at 200×200 pixels.

Product Reviews

Our family loves trying new products, especially (but not limited to) items relating to cloth diapers, baby products, parenting products, Christian life, weight loss, breastfeeding, homeschooling, and homemaking and cooking or food products. If your product is something that would interest readers of this demographic please contact me:

All reviews are honest and in the best interest of my readers. If for some reason your product receives a negative review, I will contact you prior to posting my review and give you the discretion of deciding if you would like the review to be posted. Please allow at least two weeks for me to review your product before my review is posted.

Here are a few links to some reviews and giveaways on our site:


Giveaways are welcomed on this blog. Giveaways generate more business for you as I will be posting your giveaway here on my blog, tweeting on Twitter, and posting on my personal Facebook account. Extra entries will be allowed by having readers link up to your Facebook page, sharing via Twitter, and they can even post a link to the giveaway on their own blog. All giveaways are open to US residents only, unless otherwise specified. While giveaways can be paired with reviews, this is not required. If you are interested in doing a giveaway, please email
