This Christmas Give a Gift That’s Totally Out of this World –Guardians of the Galaxy on DVD or Blu-Ray


This #OwnTheGalaxy shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. When Dustin and I first started dating we loved going to the movie theater to see films just as they were being released.  And then we had kids.  All of a sudden going to the movies just wasn’t at the top of our priority list anymore, but there still always seems to be a movie I am just dying to see.  Now instead of heading to the theater on opening day I patiently wait for them to be released on DVD.  One movie … …..

Wishing You a Happy HoneyBaked Holiday!


Thanks to HoneyBaked Ham for sponsoring todays post. Now I’m not meaning to put anyone into a panic… even though I am pretty much there myself… but Christmas is only 10 days away.  Thank goodness we already picked out our Christmas tree and decorated it as well as the rest of the house.  But I am no where near having my Christmas shopping complete and I didn’t even send out Christmas cards this year!  If you’re expecting one from us I am planning on sending out “Happy New Year” cards – I just simply can’t skip cards all together.  I … …..

Lilah Rose’s Birth Story


I know it’s been a little over a month, but I am finally ready to share Lilah Rose’s birth story. On November 5th I woke up to get Alleigh off to school.  While I was going about our normal morning routine I noticed my lower back was really hurting and I kept getting shooting pains down through my tailbone.  Dustin was working afternoons that week and so when I went in the bedroom to give him a kiss goodbye I let him know I was having these pains and that I *might* be in the beginning stages of labor, but … …..

HeroMe Customizable Action Figure Review


With 3 boys, my days are filled with talk of heroes, flying, melting rays, lava, and everything else superhero that you can possibly imagine. Of course, with superheroes comes dramatic crime fighting and physical overtaking skills that are unmatched by many, yet seem to have an uncanny ability to be incredibly annoying adoring to their mother. While many superheroes have the best intentions in mind, it’s often interpreted into lots of physical activity in little boys such as mine, and often one superhero ends up overtaking the villain- i.e. smallest child present. So when I saw a brand new product … …..

Who Wants FREE Dunkin’ Donuts? Enroll in DD Perks!


I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Dunkin’ Brands. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. My mornings consist of rushing around getting my older two ready for school while simultaneously keeping the two year old out of mischief and tending to the newborn who almost always needs her diaper changed the moment I strap her into the car seat.  Once I have everyone loaded in the car and begin the drive to drop them off that is when I realize my stomach is practically talking to me.  With so much … …..

Enjoy a Clog-Free Holiday with Charmin!


I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Charmin. I received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for my participation. When it comes to toilet paper everyone is familiar with the great debate. Over.  Under.  I’ll be honest with you… I don’t really care much either way, but I do care about what brand of toilet paper is in my bathroom.  I am so particular about my toilet paper that any time I need to use a public restroom I literally cringe when pulling that single ply sandpaper off the roll.  And so … …..

Tackling Sensory Issues with ARK Theraputic’s Grabbers


I’ve shared before about our family’s little genetic quirks and connective tissue disorder called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome that my husband, Reese (3 years), and Ezra (15 months) all have. Fortunately, we’ve been super blessed that our family has a very mild expression of many of the EDS symptoms, especially when it comes to my husband and Ezra. Reese has had a few more symptoms, with some vision and dental problems, a heart murmur, and lax joints. To help with his joints, muscle control, and just an increased awareness of his surroundings, we have been working with a physical therapist, Amanda, in … …..
