Summer Boredom Busters

summer-boredom-busters

Possibly the most frightening creature that rears it’s head in the summer months are bored children.  I write this and we still have many weeks LEFT of summer... we're at the point where swim team is done, lessons are finished.... and kids are getting bored. They bring with them everything from whining and misbehaving, to ...

Cheesecake Factory’s #SayCheesecakeContest #NationalCheesecakeDay

national-cheesecake-day

My heart rate seems to have doubled, and my breathing becomes quick and shallow. There isn’t a mirror around, but I’m almost positive my pupils must be dilated much larger than normal. I peer around, just to double check that no one else is around to watch me. I know that they aren’t. I checked ...

Outlander Series comes to Starz #Outlander

outlander banner

I'm doing something I've not really done before. I'm watching a screen version of books before i read the stories themselves. I rarely, if ever, do this, but when I heard that the ever-popular Outlander series penned by Diana Gabaldon, was coming to Starz in August, my curiosity got the best of me and I ...

3 ways to enjoy Cheerios Protein #CheeriosProtein

3-ways-to-enjoy-cheerios-protein

There's really two things I eat for breakfast regularly. I'm pretty boring and pretty basic. It's almost always eggs or cereal with milk. Eggs are broken yolk, over hard- basically, cook 'em until they are rubbery and then I'm happy.  With cereal, plain is where it's always been for me.  One of my favorite cereals ...

5 reasons to have stylish baby wipes on hand #HuggiesMomStyle

Stylish-baby-wipes

Just because I don't have a baby in diapers anymore doesn't mean I don't still have a use for stylish baby wipes.  We still use wipes frequently, and I don't see us stopping anytime soon.  I've been toting around Huggies Clutch ‘n’ Clean wipes lately-the wipes arent a new thing, but the cute and fun clutches ...

On the go first aid #PuracynFirst

on-the-go-first-aid-kit-essentials

On the go first aid is not always something we stop to consider. Honestly, if it wasn't for my husband being safety man, I'd probably not be prepared often on the go.  He's always been insistent that each of our vehicles have a well-stocked first aid kit. Which we do.  But I usually leave it ...

Healthy cat food #WellnessPetFood

When we speak about four legged friends, we are usually referring to dogs. What about our feline friends, however? My cats are just as much a part of my family as the dogs, and I love them like they’re my children (which they are). That’s why I love the month of June! June is #AdoptACatMonth. ...

Healthy on the go snack idea #RealTastesGood

healthy-snack-options-on-the-go

I want my kids to be healthy, productive, and successful. I’m fairly certain every decent mother wants the same. I find, however, that the “healthy” part is much easier said than done. The day and age that we live in is all about go, go, go, and my family is no different. Always on the ...

From Here Be Monsters to The Boxtrolls Movie #TheBoxtrolls

boxtrolls-art

I've been an avid reader my whole life.  It gives me so much joy to see all three of my kids devour books the way I always have!  Growing up, most of our books didn't turn into movies.  That's all changed, and so many childhood favorites of mine have since become miniseries or major movies. ...
