PROUD TO BE A:
The winter months in Ohio are certainly unpredictable. We’ve had days that were so bitter cold I didn’t want to even crawl out of bed and then there were days that temperatures reached nearly 60°F. We have definitely taken advantage of every warm day with trips to the zoo and park. And on the days that we can’t get out due to the crazy weather my girls love to take an adventure by diving into a book. Willow tends to travel to times when dinosaurs roamed the earth while Lilah will curl up on the couch with a kitty book. … …..
I don’t know about you, but I tend to have a tough time getting going in the morning. The problem is my mornings don’t wait for me to wake up and get enough energy to take on the day. I have two kids to get ready for school. Four to five days a week my nephew is dropped off at about 8:30am so that I can babysit him while his parents are at work. Not to mention my two little ones who are always getting into some sort of mischief. Most recently I discovered nearly every surface of my bathroom … …..
This #MerryMeals shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. I might not like the weather that comes with the winter months in Ohio. In fact I just told Dustin that I must be allergic to the cold. I’ll do anything I can to avoid going out especially when it’s snowing. But I do love the holidays that accompany these freezing months. Thanksgiving just flew by, but Christmas is less than a month away and then immediately following that we get to ring in the new year. My favorite thing about the holidays … …..
Yesterday I asked Alleigh, Kaelyn, and Willow to work together to clean their bedroom which was a complete disaster. As the day went on it became very apparent that Alleigh was doing the vast majority of the cleaning while her sisters were playing or complaining. Once the room was cleaned I decided to reward Alleigh by taking her out to eat – just the two of us. She chose Pizza Hut and I was absolutely stoked. I love Pizza Hut, but we usually order delivery. There’s just something extra delicious about Pizza Hut fresh from the oven still in the … …..
A few months ago I wrote a blog post sharing a yummy new snack Lilah and I discovered while browsing around our favorite store – Target. Curious if she still loves Gerber Lil’ Beanies? Most definitely. In fact she won’t let me pass through the toddler food and snack aisle without practically lunging out of the shopping cart to grab some more Gerber Lil’ Beanies. I always make sure to grab both flavors, Original and White Cheddar & Broccoli, because Lilah loves them both. Right now is a great time to stock up because there is an awesome cash back … …..
When I say we live a busy lifestyle I truly mean it. At the moment I am writing a blog post while simultaneously watching my tween kill it at soccer practice. We spend four evenings a week at practices and one morning at games. Soon Alleigh will also be starting swimming lessons and giving basketball a try for the first time. Each day when I pick my tween up from school we head home, complete homework, and then head out to extracurricular activities. I had been struggling to find a healthy snack that she enjoys and will also fill her up to give … …..
This #BackToSchoolSImple shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. Only 18 more days until my two oldest daughters head back to school. It’s hard to believe I will be driving a third grader and first grader to school this year. A few days ago I took them to get all of their school supplies and while we were at it decided to make a trip through Giant Eagle to get some ideas for school lunches. I really prefer to do my grocery shopping at Giant Eagle because they have a great selection … …..
This #SummerofGrilling shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. One of my favorite things about summer is grilling out. While the hubby mans the grill our girls have fun playing in the backyard. Plus there’s just nothing better than enjoying a big juicy cheeseburger fresh off the grill with the entire family gathered around the table on our back patio. But before we can enjoy that yummy food I have to make a stop by the grocery store. My favorite local retailer for all of my grilling needs is by far Giant … …..
Last week while her big sisters were at Vacation Bible School in the evening I spent some quality time hanging out with my little Lilah Rose. One of those evenings we used that time to wander around Target checking out the dollar spot as well as peeking at all of the clearance end caps. We also swung by the baby food aisle to stock up on some Gerber snacks for Lilah. All four of my girls have been big fans of Gerber Lil’ Crunchies, but while selecting a few flavors a new product caught my eye on the shelf above. … …..
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 … …..
