Organize Your Digital Media in One Safe Secure Space with MiMedia


This post was sponsored by The Motherhood and MiMedia.  All opinions are my own. I have crazy amounts of digital media stored all over the place.  External hard drives.  Camera SD cards.  Smart phones.  Tablets.  Discs.  Jump Drives.  Laptops.  Everywhere.  And so when I am looking for a specific photo it can take me hours to track it down.  Not only that, but more times than I care to admit I have completely lost precious memories.  For example a smart phone will not survive a swim in the porcelain throne.  Or when my laptop flashed the screen of death and … …..

Win Free Polar Pop For a Year!


To say things have been crazy around here would be a bit of an understatement.  Tomorrow my two oldest daughter’s will celebrate their 8th and 6th birthdays.  All these years later and it still blows my mind that they were born on the same day exactly two years apart.  Yesterday I baked eight dozen cupcakes for them to take to school today to celebrate with their teachers and friends.  Tomorrow morning we have soccer team pictures and then games all morning.  And after that we will be heading up to Maumee Bay State Park to simultaneously celebrate the lodges 25th … …..

Introducing MY LuLaRoe Consultant – Molly Z


Over the past several months I have noticed more and more pictures of brightly colored leggings, skirts, dresses, and tops filling my social media feeds.  At first I simply scrolled past them because clothes just weren’t my thing.  I was also at a rough place in my life having been recently diagnosed as pre-diabetic and so I began making drastic lifestyle changes.  As my health began improving and my body started feeling better I was also losing quite a bit of weight.  These changes led me to be a little more interested in clothing.  Since I am all about comfort … …..

Spring Has Sprung at Crazy 8

Crazy 8 fence

One of the best things about winter coming to an end is packing up all of the cold weather clothing and swapping it out with a fresh spring wardrobe.  With a house full of little fashionistas I have to be sure all of my girls are styling.  That’s why I absolutely love Crazy 8.  Their clothing ranges in size from 6 months to 14 years old which means I can coordinate from youngest to oldest.  Plus the styles are fun, fashion-forward, and {very important to me} age appropriate.  I completely fell in love with the new girls spring line – … …..

Beat Cabin Fever with a Trip to Castaway Bay {Sandusky, Ohio}

CastawayBay Water Park

The weather might be warming up, but in Ohio we are still a few months away from pool days.  However that hasn’t stopped us from swimming because a few weeks ago our family visited Castaway Bay in Sandusky, Ohio.  My girls and I always seem to get some cabin fever in the winter months and spending a few days at the water park is a sure fire way to cure it. We’ve made our annual trip up to Castaway Bay for the past four years and each year I have shared our experiences through blog posts.  Our first few years … …..

3 Ways To Make Spring Cleaning Fun

Colorful Cleaning Supplies

The sun is shining longer each day.  I’ve been waking to the sound of chipper birds each morning.  Buds are beginning to burst on the trees.  Gentle breezes have been blowing through our front screen door.  And our home is in dire need of a deep spring cleaning.  I’ll be the first to admit that cleaning house ranks around the same place as doing sit-ups or going to the dentist for me.  I would literally rather be doing anything else.  Especially when it comes to the bathroom.  And if I am going to be 100% honest I have to admit … …..

Hiding a Litter Box in Plain Sight

Cat's Pride Pouring Litter

This #UltimateLitter shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. I absolutely adore our little fluffy ball of gray fur, Nova.  But owning a cat isn’t just purrs and cat nip all the time.  Sometimes it’s a cat attacking the pointer on the computer screen while you’re trying to work.  Yes this is happening right this very second.  Sometimes it’s catching them dumping over a glass of water simply because they can.  Or attacking your feet in the middle of the night because you dared to move an inch.  Regardless of how funny … …..

Purina Pro Plan Shredded Blend is Nova Approved

Nova eating Purina Pro Plan

I firmly believe that pets are family and my two furry children mean the world to me.  I do everything I can to ensure that they live the longest, healthiest life possible.  One of the most important things is selecting a high quality food that they not only love to eat, but that is also good for them.  For both our cat and dog Purina has always been my number one choice for pet food.  Our cat, Nova, is getting a little older and it was time to make the switch from her Purina Kitten Chow to an adult blend … …..

Red Baron Pizza – A Timeless Tradition Spanning Decades

Pizza Party Then

Pizza is a timeless tradition whether enjoyed with family or friends – especially Red Baron Pizza which has been around for the past forty years.  Since 1976 it has been a part of countless memories and while surviving many questionable fads still remains the favorite for family pizza nights. I haven’t been around the entire forty years that the deliciousness of Red Baron Pizza has graced our earth, but I can take you back a few decades to the early 90s celebrating my eighth birthday.  I don’t know if my aunt knew what she was getting herself into welcoming a … …..
