How I Learned to Manage my Time as a New Mom

I get asked pretty often how I manage my time with a baby. I am a new mom, and I don’t have it all down, but I have worked really hard since having my little boy to manage my days and make the most of my time with my husband, Tommy, and my son, Ben. Now that I am back to my full time job, I find it even more important to manage my time. I want to share a little about how our life with a baby has become a more happy and relaxed one. Since I am hosting a giveaway with Jord watches, I thought it would be the perfect time to share some of the ways I manage my time as a new mom!

Baking has always been a love of mine. I remember a couple of years ago, the first time I made buttery homemade pie crust using the Barefoot Contessa’s recipe, I was so proud of myself! Also, I remember when I was a girl and made my first cake using Betty Crocker™ boxed cake mix… I was also so proud of myself! Sometimes I love to try new recipes and make everything from scratch, and sometimes store bought baking mix is just as good and can save you money too.

Making cookies around the holidays is something that I love to do. Cookies are treats that I love sharing at family parties as well as at work, and today I have two new super easy cookie recipes using Betty Crocker™ cookie mixes from Walmart.  Continue reading “Quick & Easy Holiday Cookie Recipes”
