Drug Free Morning Sickness Relief

drug-free-morning-sickness-relief

I thought hanging over a toiled at 4am was supposed to be a ritual shed in the early twenties. Hadn't counted it on it rearing its ugly head again. Yet, here I was… morning after morning. Afternoon after afternoon, and night after night. At a time in my life where sleep didn't come easily and ...

Poise Microliners and light bladder leakage

poise-microliners

This post brought to you by Poise at Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine. I am really happy I was asked to participate in this campaign. I mean, I laugh a lot.  As often as possible, in fact.  Laughing generally leads to leakage, so having some protection on that front is a very wonderful thing. ...

Things I don’t leave home without

I'm talking about something serious today.  YES, I am.  The things I don't leave home without.  These are serious things.  Well, maybe not all of them are.  But each serves a purpose.  There's also one item in particular that is newer to me but immediately became part of my 'stuff' I must bring places. Hint: it ...

Turning 40, a new doctor and a “fun” surprise

turning-40

This post brought to you by Poise at Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine. I turned 40 last week.  I did.  I'm not 29 again, not 39 again, I'm 40.  FORTY.  I'm ok with the number.  It's the other stuff that comes WITH the turning forty thing that I'm kind of struggling with.  Like Tuesday, for ...

Shared moments with family and friends #nibblers

mrs-fields-nibblers-ice-cream-topping

I'm feeling eleven kinds of nostalgic today. Maybe it's the weather, Mother's Day next week, turning 40, my baby finishing preschool next month.  Maybe I'm just sentimental. I don't know. But so many moments are flooding into my memory, new moments, old moments, forgotten moments, treasured moments. The common theme to all of my moments ...

10 Reasons to stop drinking soda #goH20

reasons to stop drinking soda

I like the taste of most sodas. I won't lie. I have a sweet tooth with a mind of it's own. I love root beer.  Birch beer. Sasparilla.  So good. I am trying to stop drinking soda, though, for a plethora of reasons.  Really, it's just not good for us. Recently, I was challenged to ...

Tools to build self-esteem and self-confidence

UNI_Dove_SelfEsteem_Social_1

Ladies, remember when you were little and anytime you saw a camera, you hammed it up?  I know I did, for years.  And then... somehow, some way, I stopped. I began to hide from the camera.  I'm too (insert negative here) or I'm not (insert adjective here) enough.  My hair's not done, my makeup's not ...

Earlier this week I had a little breakfast food Sleep Pink party with a few friends.  We all wore pink (which just happens to be the best color in the world) and enjoyed some yummy foods, fantastic company, mimosas and a whole lot of laughs. The Sleep Pink party is something that the folks at ...
