DICK’S Sporting Goods Jersey Report #jerseyreport

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of DICK'S Sporting Goods for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Does everyone in your house cheer for the same NFL team?  I sometimes wish it were that way here.  We're Patriots fans.  Well when I say we, I speak for the adults and girlsin [...]

Digital HD release of #TheSecretLifeofPets movie today! #PetsPack

One of our favorite traditions is to have family movie night on Thanksgiving Eve. Usually my husband gets out of work early, the kids have a half day, and since no one has to get up and moving too early on turkey day itself, we can stay up a little bit late. This year, we're [...]

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pecan Appetizers

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pecan Appetizers- This Mama Loves
