Great Halloween decorations really set the mood for an amazing holiday. This year, we are taking our Halloween lighting to the next level with a little help from Philips Hue, our sponsor for today’s post. With some fabulous options for Halloween mood lighting, Hue makes it so easy to set the perfect Halloween ambiance. Take a look at our Halloween porch decor and how it’s going to add a very festive element to our home this year.
As a mom with 6 kids attending Utah schools, it’s clear that our schools need more funding. Utah is last in the nation in per-student spending. That’s a statistic that could change with a new initiative on the ballot this year. Question 1 is proposing a ten cent increase in the gas tax in order to add $150 per-student in funding.

After almost 16 years as a mom, I’ve learned some tricks to help avoid burnout and recover if you need to.
