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 … …..

Encourage their Imagination with Strictly Briks this Holiday {Review & Giveaway}

This Christmas, we’ve decided to really focus on STREAM (science, technology, reading,  engineering, art, and math) gifts rather than toys with lots of lights, sounds, and batteries.  We’ve realized that almost all of the toys that our kids tend to play with over and over are STREAM toys anyway, and right now, some of their very favorites are building block and snap together sets.  After building one thing, they pass it on to the next brother, combine some different sets, and create something completely different.  It’s the perfect way to keep their minds and hands busy without the need for … …..

Blast from the Past this Christmas with Blendy Pens {Review & Giveaway}

This post and giveaway is sponsored by Blendy Pens. However, all thoughts and opinions are 100% honest and completely my own. School is in full swing already, and it’s hard to believe, but I’m already gearing up for the holidays.  I’ve been hiding and stashing little gifts for Christmas here and there, grabbing things of interest as I go.  While some of my kids are hard to buy for, Reese, my second child, is probably one of the easiest.  I know any gift will always be a big hit if it allows him to draw or use his creativity, which … …..

Contain Toys and Gather Them in a Snap with Play&Go

Messes are inevitable when you have four children between the ages of one and seven.  And as much as I try really hard to avoid it, clutter is pretty much inevitable most of the time as well.  We have tons of storage bins, boxes, and shelves, but I still find that clutter happens when all of those things are taken down to play.  I mean, sure, playing legos sounds innocent enough… until I rudely realize at 6 am that they were never gathered back up and put away into those bins, and it’s currently lodged in the sole of my … …..

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 … …..
