Life has been rather crazy around the Harper household. We just got back from our family vacation to Destin, Florida. Alleigh and Kaelyn had their first day back to school. And soccer season started again. I’ve been running here and there and everywhere while working up a sweat in this hot humid weather. And I’m not just talking about my pits. Before I go any further I’m just going to throw out a friendly public service announcement that this post is for the ladies. And so if you don’t have a V then you might want to click over to … …..
Two words that definitely describe me are crafty and creative. I love thinking up new ideas and seeing my thoughts become a reality. My hubby on the other hand tends to roll his eyes when the wheels in my brain start turning because he knows I will be asking him to assist when it comes to using saws, drills, and other tools. But recently I had the opportunity to try out the new BLACK+DECKER 20V MAX* Lithium 2-Speed Drill and decided this project was going to be completed entirely on my own. I envisioned an American Flag comprised of wood … …..
We’ve been a family of 6 for just about 4 weeks now, and summer break is in full swing. While my husband has been off work with me to adjust to our new family and sweet baby Julian, we’ve had so much fun spending quality time with our boys. Since the weather has been pretty much beautiful, we’ve spent a ton of time enjoying the outdoors. Our boys play outside every day they possibly can, and we’ve been burning through the sunscreen like no tomorrow. Since children receive three times as much sun exposure than adults do every year, we … …..
School is quickly coming to a close for our boys, and we are all so excited for the arrival of warmer weather. This year, we even have a new baby joining us, and we’re ready for a summer packed full of fun and learning! But unfortunately, along with all of the outdoor activities and beautiful weather, a nasty cold bug or two seems to catch on in the transition. Even though we try our best to keep those germs away, sick still seems to get very real in our house. Plus,when you have a home full of boys like we … …..
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 … …..
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 … …..
This post is sponsored by Disney-Hyperion. Growing up I remember waking up on Saturdays and staying in bed reading books all morning long. I could devour them one after another. My oldest daughter seems to be heading down that same path which makes me one happy mama. She loves to read and gets super excited whenever she receives a new book. Recently she received two books in the Ballet Cat series written by Bob Shea. These books are recommended for ages 6 to 8 years. Alleigh loves that they are written in a comic book style compared to a traditional … …..
All samples and prizing are provided by Random House Kids, and all thoughts and opinions are my own. As I sit here writing this, I can clearly hear three little boys “sleeping”. And by sleeping, I mean playing, scheming plans for tomorrow, and doing everything but lying still and going to sleep! Bedtime always has been a battle for us to get all three of our boys quiet, still, and asleep at the same time. We’ve tried just about every method out there, and while some help, the struggle. is. real. Do you guys struggle like we do? My guess … …..
I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. I love celebrating birthdays and today I am excited to celebrate a very special 150th birthday for one of my favorite children’s clothing stores – Carter’s! To celebrate such a momentous occasion Carter’s is hosting a 150th Birthday Sweepstakes. And the prizes are amazing – 150 winners will each win two $150 Carter’s gift cards! Entering is simple. All you have to do is follow Carter’s on Instagram and Twitter. Then post a photo or … …..
I received a product sample free of charge to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I’ll be the first to admit that I am most definitely not a morning person. I mean, I work midnights for a reason! So getting up at 6:30 am every morning to take Aiden to school is a huge shock to my system (especially when all 3 of my kids have an awesome track record of sleeping past 9 am if they are left alone!). In true midnight shift form, I have come to completely rely on my morning coffee to … …..
