You Aren’t the Person I Fell in Love With

When I married Penn, I was in my 20s and I was a lot more fun. I had an entire section of my closet dedicated to “going out” tops. I was spontaneous and carefree. Late night dinners and nights dancing with friends were my idea of a good time. Then life happened. And just as […]

Valentine’s Day Gifts You Can Amazon Prime

Penn and I have this tradition with Valentine’s Day. We always say, “Don’t get me anything” then 100% of the time he gets me something. This year I won’t be fooled! But I also don’t plan ahead. Luckily, we live in an era where awesome gifts can be ordered with 2-day free shipping right to […]

Quick Homemade Peanut Sauce – Rescue Your Leftovers!

Leftovers are a necessity in our house. Tonight’s dinner is tomorrow’s lunch. Most weeks we have a “fridge clean out night” when we pile up a mountain of whatever’s left call it a meal. Here’s the problem: While I love reducing food waste (and saving money) my family isn’t always a fan of eating the […]

How to Compromise with Your Partner

Early on in our marriage, I always thought of compromise as 100%. I wanted Penn to be 100% as invested in something as I was into. In return, I would be 100% invested in something he wanted to do, even if it wasn’t my thing. That works sometimes, but it can be exhausting. Over time, […]

Easy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites – Gluten & Dairy Free

Before you read any further, let me be clear: You aren’t going to fool anyone with these cauliflower buffalo bites. These are not chicken wings. They are not pretending to be chicken wings. They are unapologetically cauliflower. (Don’t be afraid to own it, ok?) Having said that, I promise they are a crowd favorite at […]

Never Say This To Someone with a Special Needs Child

You know what I’m guilty of? Saying the phrase: “Let me know if you need anything.” Especially to friends of mine with special needs children. What I learned this week from Dr. Emily King (our favorite child and adolescent psychologist podcast guest) is that empty gesture doesn’t do anyone any favors. How many times has […]

Why I Stopped Quitting

I love to start something. In fact, I start A LOT of things. I have a list of videos I have started and never finished. I have 3 different first chapters of 3 different books I want to write. I love the energy, the excitement, the possibility of a FRESH START.  But finishing things? Yeah, […]

About Us
The Holderness family has been dancing in pajamas and singing during snow days for years — but last year they hit the record button on the camera and published their goofy video on YouTube. Penn, Kim, Lola, and Penn Charles continue to make hilarious videos around tent-pole events and circumstances most families face.
