Ladies Night In with Dunkin’ Donuts Bakery Series Coffee


I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Dunkin’ Donuts. I received product samples to facilitate my In-Home party as well as a promotional item to thank me for participating.   In recent years, coffee has taken on a new meaning in my life.  I’m not sure if it’s the result of being a mom, a night shift nurse, an insomniac, an adult, or just loving the flavor, but I NEED coffee.  Like on a daily basis NEED coffee.  Like I can’t survive a 12-hour shift without NEEDING coffee.  Which is why I got really … …..

Burt’s Bees Baby Now Available at Select Babies R Us Stores {Plus a Giveaway}


Ever since becoming a mom over six years ago I have become much more aware of the chemicals that are present in our home and in the products we are using on ourselves and our children.  That is why one of my favorite companies is Burt’s Bees.  When using a Burt’s Bees product I know I can expect the scent and texture of the best nature has to offer including clary sage, chamomile, aloe, pomegranate, willow bark, and bees wax.  And not only are we getting nature at it’s best, but we’re also receiving science that actually works.  That’s because … …..

Hallmark Poster Cards for Kids – The Perfect Back to School Send Off!


I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for #CollectiveBias and its advertiser. It’s officially back to school time and honestly I was a bit worried about how this whole process was going to go down.  This would be Kaelyn’s first year of pre-kindergarten so I had no idea how she would react to being away from mama for so long.  And any time I would mention anything about back to school Alleigh would have a break down – sobbing, alligator tears, the works.  But … …..

Never Wordless Wednesday: First Day of School 2014


Every mom says it…. but I just can’t believe how fast my girls are growing up.  When I started writing this blog my Kaelyn Mae was only a couple months old.  And today she attended her first day of pre-kindergarten.  How is that even possible?  And my oldest had her first day of first grade!  I keep asking them to stay little, but they just don’t listen! Now Willow… she was ready to ship her sister’s off for the day.  She got mama all to herself for 6 whole hours!  And though I missed my big girls lots, it definitely … …..

Sea-Band Mama: The Natural Way to Relieve Morning Sickness


Thanks Sea-Band Mama for sponsoring the following post. Sometimes I find it hard to believe that I am actually pregnant with our fourth child. That in a few short months we will have another adorable baby girl to snuggle and cuddle. At this moment I am feeling so absolutely blessed – especially when I feel her moving and kicking inside me. And I’m finally enjoying food again. Yup, I am indulging in whatever craving hits me at any given moment. These are just a few of the photos I have shared on Instagram when one of those cravings strikes. Just … …..

1 in 4 Americans Experience Bladder Leakage – Join Me & #DropYourPants for #Underawareness


Thanks to Depend for sponsoring today’s discussion. After giving birth to my absolutely adorable little girls I knew my body would change.  I knew my stomach would never be the same again.  I knew my breasts wouldn’t be as perky… especially after many years of breastfeeding.  I knew those veins and dimpling in my thighs would be around for the long haul.  But something I wasn’t prepared for was losing the control I had over my bladder.  That thing now seems to have a mind of it’s own.  I can’t laugh, sneeze, cough, or throw up without peeing myself!  And … …..

Back To School Celebration with Tombstone Pizza


This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc and it’s advertiser.  All opinions are mine alone. This summer went far too fast.  This coming Monday I will be dropping my oldest, Alleigh, off for her first day of first grade.  I remember her first few weeks of kindergarten weren’t the smoothest last year and she’s already begun telling me that she doesn’t want to go back to school this year.  It’s actually quite surprising because she is a very bright little girl and amazes me every day with the things she says and the books she can read.  I know … …..

Help Fight Childhood Cancer with Red Robin & Alex’s Lemonade Stand on National Lemonade Day – 8.20.2014


  Pregnancy cravings.  These are very real occurrences that must be taken seriously and fulfilled quickly.  Trust me there is not much worse than a pregnant woman who wants a specific beverage or food – just ask my hubby… this is his 4th time around the block, hehe.  And just how every baby is completely different so are the pregnancies right down to the cravings.  So what is Mama Harper craving with Baby Harper #4?   Well, where beverages are concerned it is lemonade.  I just can not get enough of the stuff… the sour of the lemons mixed with the … …..

The countdown has officially begun.  In less than two short weeks I will be sending my oldest two off to school.  Alleigh will be entering first grade and Kaelyn will be attending pre-kindergarten.  Preparing for back to school always puts a bit of a stretch on the bank account with all of the shopping that needs to be done.  School supplies, clothing, book bags, food to pack for lunches, and lots more.  I am so thankful that I have the means to … …..
