There’s Still Time to Attend Disney On Ice presents Dare to Dream! in Cleveland, Ohio

Last Friday Dustin, the girls, and I headed up to Cleveland, Ohio to attend Disney On Ice presents Dare To Dream! at Quicken Loans Arena.  This was an ideal year for us because all of our girls are at perfect ages to enjoy the show.  At nine years old Alleigh hasn’t yet entered the “too cool tween” stage and at three years old Lilah was super excited about all of the characters.  The fact that they were on the ice and not too close to her helped as well since she’s not too sure about characters dressed up being right … …..

Celebrating Rex with the Milk-Bone Gifmaker

This post was sponsored by Milk-Bone® as part of a Two-Post Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.   Most of my readers know that I have four daughters, but did you know I also have a son?  He might walk on four legs, be covered in fur and be named T-Rex, but he’s got a place in my heart just the same as my human children.  Even thinking about a time when he might not be a part of my life tends to bring a tear to my eye.  It’s a mighty … …..

Fight Breast Cancer with Hungry Howie’s #LoveHopePizza

    October is here and I am so excited because autumn is my favorite season.  October brings gorgeous fall leaves, bright orange pumpkins, apple cider, trick-or-treat, and it also brings pink ribbons for Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women.  In the United States one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.  With statistics like this I am sure you have a personal connection with this deadly cancer.  My grandmother fought breast cancer and thankfully she was a survivor.  There are many ways you can help … …..

Celebrating Dogs with Milk-Bone & Canine Assistants

This post was sponsored by Milk-Bone® as part of a Two-Post Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. There is something truly special about dogs.  No dog is “just” a dog.  They are so much more than that.  Our dog, T-Rex, is a member of our family.  He is my fur baby and even has his very own spot in the header of my blog right along side my human children.  He entered our lives so unexpectedly roughly a year and a half ago.  While driving home after dropping my kids off at … …..

Make Moving with Kids Less Stressful

When Dustin and I found out that we were expecting our first child about ten years ago we were living in an apartment.  While apartment living works for some people it didn’t seem practical for us especially in our current living situation.  We were on the third floor of a building without an elevator, no washer/dryer in our unit, and the second bedroom was very small.  And so we began the frantic search for what would become our first home together since our lease was soon to expire on our apartment.  We had intended for this cozy bungalow to be … …..

Bundles of Savings with Sam’s Club & Huggies

One thing I always knew was that I wanted to be a mom, but I wasn’t quite sure how many kids that would be.  Ten years ago I might have thought you were crazy if you told me today I would have four daughters, hehe.  Yet over the past nine years I have been blessed to grow our family by four beautiful bundles of joy.  I will never forget the moment each of those bundles were placed in my arms and they got their first hug from mama.  Huggies understands that there is truly nothing more powerful than that moment.  … …..
