Awesome Fashions From Oshkosh for the Holidays #GIVEHAPPY #MC


{I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’gosh. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.} I have said it before and I’ll say it again — I love Oshkosh B’gosh clothes. And so do my kids. The fit is spot on, and the quality can’t be beat. Any time the kids need new clothes, the first place I check out is {Read More}

TotSpot: A Quick, Easy and Fun way to Buy and Sell Kids Clothes


As all moms know, the amount of clothes your child needs and has is unreal. Every season, I go through the kids drawers and pull out what they no long need, and I also go through their “storage” bins to see what I packed away the previous year in the hopes that it would still fit. This leaves to lots of clothes laying around and a big expense to get new ones. In comes TotSpot …. an easy and fun {Read More}

Why Pink is What it’s All About this Month


I have to say, first and foremost, that I will wear pink 24/7. It is my absolute favorite color, and I try to work it into my look whenever I can. But I really make that extra effort in October for a few reasons. The first is very obvious — October is breast cancer awareness month, and pink is the officially color. But the second is a bit more personal — my step-mom had breast cancer, and that makes it {Read More}

I received a sample device to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.} I have been having so much fun checking out the different smartphones Sprint offers as part of the Sprint Mom Ambassadorship (you can see what I thought of the HTC One Max here and the Kyocera Hydro Vibe here) and I have gotten my favorite phone to {Read More}

Giving Some Thought To E Cigs

Jay and I have been talking for some time about him trying electronic cigarettes. He is a long time smoker and one of the things that I cannot stand is the smell of cigarette smoke. While he still isn’t sure that e cigarettes are something that he would like, I think that he is getting closer to agreeing to try them. The two biggest reasons for him considering the switch — the cost savings of smoking e cigarettes vs traditional {Read More}

I’m in Watch Love

I have never been a huge watch wearer, but Jay always has been. So when I first heard about these Wood Watches from JORD, I thought they would be perfect for him. Then I saw them and I immediately fell in love. They are unique, beautiful and look even better in person than they do online. I was very fortunate to be able to check out the Fieldcrest watch — its dark wood perfectly compliments any outfit and makes it {Read More}

{This post is sponsored by Pop Secret, but my opinions are all my own.} With two kids at home, it can be pretty hard to get a night out for a date. So the answer is usually to just have a date night at home. Dinner, movie and of course — some popcorn! While its always fun for Jay and I to spend time relaxing together, Pop Secret Popcorn is also the perfect snack for the kids anytime! The kids {Read More}

{I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Sprint. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating} Recently, my step-dad came over to tell me he took his phone “swimming” and it was totally broken. What really happened was he was fishing with his phone in his pocket, and his canoe flipped — sending him and the phone into the lake. Thankfully, he was okay … the phone? {Read More}

Fresh Laundry Equals a Happy Household #MusicToYourNose


I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Gain. I received a promotional item as a thank-you for participating. Laundry is a big deal in my house. Many arguments have been had because a I-must-wear-it-now piece of clothing didn’t make it out of the wash. We also all tend to disagree on what type of laundry detergent should be used, and everyone (right on down to the kids) has an opinion about what our clothes should {Read More}

It’s Pet Appreciation Week! #PSP4Pets (CLOSED)

I participated in this program on behalf of Pet Supplies Plus and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. It has been a running joke for a long time that one day, I will be the neighborhoods crazy cat lady. I’ll admit it — I love cats. And dogs. And just about any other animal there is. Maybe I will just be the lady that has a whole plethora of random animals by the time I am old enough to {Read More}
