Total Body Care Starts at Massage Envy


This post was sponsored by Massage Envy as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. When is the last time you took a moment for yourself?  Chances are it might be so long ago that you don’t even remember when it was or what you did.  The last time I can recall taking a moment entirely for myself without any of my children present or my hubby was when I took a walk along the beach on vacation before anyone else woke up for the day.  That was over four months ago.  I’d say that I am well over … …..

Hallmark itty bittys Make Perfect Stocking Stuffers

Hallmark Itty Bittys Navity

I don’t know about you, but I am super excited for Christmas this year.  I’m looking forward to continuing our family traditions while adding new ones too.  The day after Thanksgiving I will pack away all of the fall decorations so I can deck the halls with boughs of holly and my many many boxes of Christmas decor.  I firmly believe that one can never have too much Christmas decor and so I am always on the look out for new pieces for our home.  That’s what led me to swing by our local Hallmark Gold Crown store after picking … …..

Unique European Toys from Magicforest this Christmas


I’ve been talking about Christmas and shopping a lot lately… probably because I am just so far behind! So it’s definitely on the forefront of my mind as I really try to come up with those fun, unique, and wonderful gifts.  I try hard to not only get my kids toys that they’ll play with, but ones that will last up to some serious use.  And every once in awhile, when I can find that “it” gift, I get that joy that comes with giving another person something really special.  Luckily, I can always seem to find that “it” gift … …..

Sunny’s Must Have Holiday Gifts for Kids


We’ve been so busy finishing the sale of our home and buying a new one that Christmas and the holiday season have totally snuck up on me! I tend to be a very early shopper, searching out the best deals throughout the spring and summer. By now, I usually have a majority of my shopping completed- especially for my boys (ages 2, 4, and 5).  Well, this year, I have about three things bought for them.  Since I thought a few of you may be in the same boat as me with the bustle of the school year taking over, … …..

Klondike Kandy Bars – Perfection in a Thick Chocolate Shell

Klondike Reese's

This post was sponsored by Klondike as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review. Just because summer has come to an end doesn’t mean that enjoying ice cream needs to come to an end too.  In fact I think it’s even more enjoyable to eat ice cream now because I don’t have to worry about it melting immediately.  Recently I was grocery shopping at Walmart and decided to grab some Klondike Bars.  That’s when I realized that Klondike has really expanded from the thick chocolatey Klondike shell and creamy vanilla ice … …..

Reclaim Bedtime with The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep {Giveaway}


All samples and prizing are provided by Random House Kids, and all thoughts and opinions are my own. As I sit here writing this, I can clearly hear three little boys “sleeping”.  And by sleeping, I mean playing, scheming plans for tomorrow, and doing everything but lying still and going to sleep!  Bedtime always has been a battle for us to get all three of our boys quiet, still, and asleep at the same time.  We’ve tried just about every method out there, and while some help, the struggle. is. real.  Do you guys struggle like we do?  My guess … …..

Easy Cheesy Salsa Dip – Perfect for Sharing

Kraft Cheese 3 Ingredient Dip Close Up

This #NaturallyCheesy shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. Autumn is by far my favorite time of the year.  I love everything about it.  The leaves changing colors and gracefully falling to the ground.  The best is driving while the leaves are blowing in the wind and across the roads.  Or going for a hike through the woods and hearing the crunch of leaves underneath your feet.  And all of the delicious fall foods.  Pumpkin everything.  Apple cider.  Soup. Cornbread and chili.  Of course everything gets even better when Kraft Natural Shredded … …..

Tame Your Mane with Logo Loops

LogoLoops Peace

As a mom of four girls I have lots of hair to tame each day.  By the time I get all of their hair done I barely want to look at my own, hehe.  Luckily my oldest daughter is beginning to be able to brush and style her hair on her own.  Since her hair is shoulder length she typically prefers to brush it and leave it down, but then her hair is constantly hanging in her face and getting into her eyes.  The easiest solution is to hold it back with a headband, but Alleigh doesn’t like the plastic … …..

Every Woman Deserves a Safe Childbirth


I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the Cigna Foundation, in partnership with Samahope. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. After the birth of each of my daughter’s I made sure to write their birth story so that I could remember all the little details that may eventually fade from my memories.  Each story is so different and each time something didn’t go exactly according to my plan, but I was blessed to end each story with a beautiful bundle of joy being placed in my arms. Another similarity among … …..

Keep Windows #SafeAndStylish with Smith & Noble

When it comes to childproofing the obvious things seem to get addressed first.  Electrical outlets get covered with plugs.  Cabinets get locked.  Gates are installed.  But children are curious and there are many hidden dangers lurking in our homes that need to be addressed.  In fact the Consumer Product Safety Commission has determined the corded window coverings are one of the top five hidden hazards in American homes.  Each year infants, toddlers, and children pass away from accidentally strangling in window cords. There is a reason corded window treatments come with these warnings attached and we need to take them … …..
