5-tips-reduce-holiday-stress

Can you believe we have less than two weeks left before Christmas is here? It feels like I have so much to do and so little time. There is a ton of cooking, shopping, school and sporting events for the kids and lots of work. I am getting stressed out just thinking about all of ...

Thule Roof Rack

Mini countryman roof rack thule

I love the new roof rack system that Thule sent to me for this post.  It was easy to install, very functional and quiet on the highway. This set-up came with Thule AeroBlade bars that have Wind Diffuser technology disturbs airflow to reduce noise and drag for improved fuel economy.  All pictured Thule items retail ...

Funky styles for girls: My Little Jules (Giveaway)

persnickety-denim-jeans

While I may not be on trend with fashion for me, my girls really like to be... and I don't mind it at all.  I actually love when we find things that everyone else doesn't have, pieces that are comfortable, stylish, and made to wear. We've loved My Little Jules before, and have fallen in ...

Practicing Soccer Skills At Home

Practicing Soccer Skills at Home

My two older children, ages 9 & 10, love soccer and wish they could practice their Soccer Skills and play year round.  In our little rural area they only offer youth soccer in the fall and it seems the season just flies by with not enough opportunity for the kids to really work on the ...

Rudolph turns 50 #Rudolph50 #ShineBright #giveaway

50YearsRudolph

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is the longest-running and highest-rated holiday TV special of all time, and it is inarguably a beloved part of the American holiday tradition.   This year is the 50th anniversary of the story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.  Yes, the sort-of fuzzy and very dated little reindeer with the bright red nose who ...

help-really-dry-skin

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Vaseline for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. I have such dry, scaly skin in cold weather months.  I actually refer to it as elephant skin (and I'm not sure why because I've not actually rubbed an elephant's skin ever!).  I hate it.  It's embarrassing ...

Outback Steakhouse is on a mission to help couples steak out more time for one another by declaring itself the Official Sponsor of Date Night and offering a special weekend deal they can’t refuse.  Naturally, we couldn't refuse, because we LOVE Outback Steak (and the Ahi Tuna appetizer) so after 3 nights scheduled and delayed, ...

Preserving digital memories #LyveMinds

lyve-home-gift

I am going to admit here and now I'm horrible about printing our photos.  Going back since our oldest was born? I could easily guess we have over 10,000 photos I have not printed.  I'm pretty sure we wouldn't print all of them, but I've printed almost NONE of them.  It's not deliberate- but as ...

Getting stains out of clothes

We are a sports family, through and through. My children absolutely love to participate in sports and activities. Although it does take a lot of ripping and running on my Husband and I's part, we love them being able to participate in the activities they love as well. You know what DOESN'T love all of their ...

Ready to party? I am.  What's the occasion?  Well, some of my favorite chocolates are going to be available for purchase where some of my other favorite chocolates are available for purchase.  What's better than CHOCOLATE?
