Join us to talk beef! #Beef4Dinner #TwitterParty 9/30

Looking for dinner inspiration? Look no further, during the #Beef4Dinner Twitter Party we will be chatting about easy recipes to bring more beef into your dinner routine. We love to use beef for meatballs (in many varieties like Pumpkin Meatballs), Meat Pie, and Cheesy Chili Bombs are all easy to make and sure to please the whole family. Marinated Flank Steak is quite delicious but does take a little more time to make. Worth every moment spent! I’ll be compensated for co-hosting this Twitter party.


If you love to cook with beef, but are looking for more ideas to change up your routine join us during the #Beef4Dinner Twitter Party. In addition to sharing ideas with other Tweeters, RSVP below and participate in the Twitter Party answering host questions to be eligible to win a beef dinner!

Wendy’s® is “Livin the Gouda Life” with their new Smoked Gouda Chicken on Brioche. They are so excited about it, they’re having a party, and they’ve asked me to help out with the party and TELL YOU GUYS about it.


It has dijon aoioli.
And carmelized onion sauce.


Plus? GOUDA cheese.


And all of those things are paried up with the breaded chicken on a brioche. Not just any old bun, but a brioche.


There’s a GOUDA chance you are leaving your whatever-you-access-the-internets-on and running to get yourself one of these sandwiches. (Which is why you may hate me… I mean, what if you were right in the middle of a conversation? Or teaching a class? Putting the kids to bed? And suddenly, you have this urge to go to Wendy’s® and get the new sandwich that’s got dijon and carmelized onions and gouda… oh, the gouda).

Did you see what I did there, a minute ago, with the GOUDA chance?  I mean, do you even get that? Har har har.
Listen, there’s going to be a PARTY *yay* celebrating the new gouda gouda-ness. And it’s tomorrow. As in…

Recap of the #ReadyforAnything Twitter party

This post brought to you by Triad Retail Media. The content and opinions expressed below are that of this mama loves.


If you missed the  #ReadyForAnythingTwitter party, let me tell you, it was a mess.  Or rather, we shared our messes. And how we use Angel Soft® facial tissues in oh so many ways to help with those messes.  We’ve all used facial tissues for blowing and wiping noses, but there are so many other ways we’ve used them!

You can use facial tissues to wipe drool (my littlest does this all the time. The record length of her drool to date is about 18 inches…)

  Steadying a wobbling table…  

Taking care of creepy crawlies…

Playing at a water park. Or IN water. Or around water. Or near it. Or thrown water..  

My Grama Evelyn used to keep a tissue tucked into her watch band.  Just in case. You really just never know…

So we came, we tweeted, we partied, and gave away prizes.

Don’t forget to head to Walmart to grab Angel Soft® tissue packs!

They conveniently fit in your purse making them available at home and on the go. Sad movie? Allergies? Is your little one wearing lunch on his face? Was there a juice box spill in the car, again? The everyday stuff that only a mom truly understands just got a bit easier thanks to Angel Soft® soft pack facial tissues.

#ElfBirthday Twitter Party August 27 8-9pm ET

You may have one or you may have seen them around but no doubt about it, The Elf on the Shelf is most definitely a holiday tradition for many families. It’s another way to add some fun and excitement to holiday time (and if you know me, you know I LOVE holiday time…) We love the elves in our house and look forward to their arrival on Thanksgiving night every single year.



The Elf on the Shelf® is a scout elf sent from the North Pole to help Santa Claus know who is naughty and who is nice. Elves typically appear in their families’ homes around Thanksgiving, but the book indicates “holiday time.” On Christmas Eve, the elves typically return to the North Pole with Santa Claus. Scout elves are available in boy or girl versions, with a light or dark skin tone.

Did you know that Santa loves birthdays, too? Now in addition to Christmas, your child can also see their favorite on their birthday with The Elf on the Shelf®: A Birthday Tradition.



In Santa’s Christmas village at the North Pole, the scout elves have their own special way of celebrating birthdays—a tradition that goes back many generations. Now, Santa has given special permission for his elves to share that tradition with the families who love them. The Elf on the Shelf®: A Birthday Tradition tells the little-known story of how Santa’s finest helpers celebrate birthdays at the North Pole—and how you can invite your scout elf to share that tradition with YOU.

Each kit includes special instructions for inviting your scout elf for a birthday visit, and a festive birthday outfit for your scout elf to slip into before the big day. Also available—the Birthday Countdown & Game and the Birthday Chair Decoration Kit.




Please join us this week to learn about an all new family tradition that brings back your child’s beloved Christmas Elf on the Shelf® for a special birthday visit.

Life’s Little Messes: #ReadyForAnything Twitter Party

This post brought to you by Walmart. The content and opinions expressed below are that of this mama loves.

Driving around doing errands this morning, going to swim lessons, eating lunch, visiting my dad, stopping for fresh corn today, I counted seventeen times I needed to wipe something or someone off.  That’s only since we left home this morning.  Life isn’t always neat and tidy, no matter how hard we try, and as a mom, I try to be prepared for those times.  Angel Soft® facial tissues are now available at Walmart in flexible, water resistant, durable packs. That means I can keep them in the van, the swim bag, the kids’ backpacks, without worry that a little wet towel or water bottle leakage will ruin the whole pack. It also means I’m prepared no matter if I have my own bag, or just the kids, because I always insist they each have a pack of tissues in their bags as well.


Angel Soft® tissue packs conveniently fit in your purse, camera bag, backpack, coat pocket, etc., making them available at home and on the goThat means they are at hand when you need them, on the go, when you don’t have all of your supplies from home on hand.

Since many of life’s little messes seem to happen before, during or after school… and its August, back to school time, we hope you’ll join us for the…

5 Essentials for Pets #PSP4Pets

Like children, pets come with equipment. They don’t REALLY come with equipment… because that would be way to easy. They do, however, require certain things to maintain their comfort AND your sanity! Cats and Dogs differ in their needs of course, but there are 5 essentials for pets that remain consistent! June 1-7 is Pet Appreciation Week – a week to celebrate all the things we love about our pets as we shower them with extra love and affection.  Seems like a good time to share some things that our furrier family members need.

 5 Essentials for Pets





Lloyd is still a kitten.  He still needs kitten food- until he’s a year old.

This seems like a simple no brainer, but it is undoubtedly the most important part of owning a pet.  Many people figure you just grab a can of dog or cat food from the local pet store and call it a day, but that is not the case. Food is so important because you MUST choose the food that matches your pets needs, age, and health requirements. If you aren’t sure, it’s a good idea to check with your vet for suggestions.


natures sleep tobey

So you share your home with the pet, and it becomes theirs too. Pets also need, however, a home INSIDE your home! Whether it be a special pillow, and elaborate doggie bed, or a kennel compliment with a blanket all of their own; create a space for your pet to rest and relax that’s all their own.



Like children, pets can be mischievous. Providing your pet with toys will give them distraction and help keep the curiosity brought about by boredom at bay! If you don’t provide toys for your pets, it’s likely they will find their own amongst your personal belongings! If you value that new pair of shoes you received, buy them a toy!


tobey dog treat container

Training pets can seem difficult at first, but it is similar to training children. Positive reinforcement goes along way. Keep treats handy to reward your pet when they’ve done a great job, and you will soon notice they will be soaking up your praise!


ID Collar

This is a MUST. All pets in your home (with the exception of caged animals, of course) should have an ID collar with your address and details. Their collar should also include their name, and vaccination details. If your pet is ever lost, this will allow the finder to return them to you (or your local vet) quickly and easily. Be sure to keep these updated when you move.


 One place we go to for our pet essentials is Pet Supplies Plus. They have stores located in neighborhoods across the country, with each location big enough to carry everything your pet needs, but small enough to feel like home. The Pet Supplies Plus in-store team is dedicated to helping you find the right products for your pet — and will likely also remember your pet’s face and name after a few visits! (They totally do, and love Tobey. We haven’t attempted a field trip with the kittens, and probably won’t anytime soon).

Believing that every pet deserves a safe, healthy and loving home, Pet Supplies Plus partners with local animal rescue organizations, hosts adoption events at select neighborhood locations, and organizes fundraising activities to support local animal shelters and charities. Visit your local store for the latest event information!

Join us for a Pet-Centered Twitter Party

What: June 1-7 is Pet Appreciation Week, and we’re celebrating with a Twitter party to talk about our pets and share tips on proper pet care. Pet Supplies Plus is dedicated to helping pet owners find the best foods, treats and toys for each pet’s individual needs. They carry a broad selection and serve as an excellent resource for pet owners on everything from nutrition to how diet can affect pets’ behavior.

The Motherhood is joining Pet Supplies Plus for this Twitter party to discuss, learn and share more about our beloved pets. Get your cute pet photos ready to share!!!
