A few weeks ago we took a trip to Disneyland with 6 bodies, and clearly my 2 door coupe wasn’t going to cut it in terms of transportation. So in the interest of saving gas and parking I contacted my friends over at DriveShop and asked if they could help me out. I explained we had 3 adults and 3 kids in carseats, so we needed something roomy, and we were going to have lots of stuff (luggage, a stroller, costumes, and backpacks!) so we needed something with ample storage too. It was a big task, and to be honest, I asked a lot out of them. But you know what?Continue Reading
We’ve lived here for 5 years, and since it’s a rental, we’ve very rarely ever upgraded anything. I save all those brilliant ideas for my Pinterest board for when we finally break down and buy something. But through the years we have updated a few things out of necessity and aesthetic reasons.Continue Reading
Do you remember that Barenaked Ladies song “If I Had a Million Dollars“? It used to be one of my favorite songs, just for the sheer ridiculousness of it. Often times when I am fantasizing about all the things I want to buy online it pops into my head and makes me smile. So I reached into my inner Barenaked Lady (heyo!) and came up with my “If I Had a Million Dollars” summer wishlist. If I had a million dollars I’d buy you a…
Getting old sucks y’all. Everyone warned me about it, but I didn’t listen. As I get older, I notice a lot of saggy, crepey, wrinkles under my eyes, especially after looking at a computer for 8 hours a day. I’ve had to turn to using under eye cream, which was something I never really had to use before, but now I find myself reaching for all sorts of brands to try them all out. Another thing I started using is the Ionic Infusion Wand from Swiss Ultimate Labs.Continue Reading
Y’all know my sister had a baby 2 months ago – my sweet little moose of a nephew, Miles Robert. He’s just the cutest little thing ever. I love doing things for my first time mommy sister – every time we get together, I shower her with gifts! Lucky girl, huh? I love being able to share the presents I give her with you guys, because hopefully I can inspire you to make some easy DIY gifts for the mama’s in your life too! Today I am sharing this easy DIY Baby Brag Book I made using the MyPrintly software from HP. It’s a great tool for printing photos and projects and I am so inspired every time I use it! Bonus? IT’S FREE!Continue Reading
Can I just let you know how excited I have been for the launch of The Sims™ 4? Oh. My. Gosh. I am not really a “gamer” I don’t think I would, or could put myself into the category that my husband and his gaming friends are in, but I can geek myself out on some Sims all day long. My obsession started back when the very first The Sims™ game came out. I installed that first disk, and the rest is history. I am not entirely sure what I love about The Sims™ more, nostalgia or control. Both are pretty nice. Over the years the game has evolved into something so amazing, and with each release the Create A Sim gets better and better. Honestly, Maxis and EA have out done themselves this time.Continue Reading

So here’s something you may not know about bloggers… We have deadlines. We worry about SEO. We track our social media and pageviews. We create content to make money AND to keep you entertained. Sure, blogging is a fun hobby, but for some of us it’s a job too. Monday’s are the craziest days for me, but also my favorite. It’s a great mail day usually, lots of new job opps to apply for, but I always usually have at least one post that is DUE with a deadline. Sometimes I am not near my computer (like on my family road trip) and I’ve had to blog on my phone to get those deadlines met, social media shares tagged and content links entered. It’s stressful and I’ve wanted a better solution for awhile now, especially since we have another trip planned in October. I also needed my option to be financially viable, and easily portable. A free T-Mobile data plan would be awesome too… Enter the trio AXS from T-Mobile.Continue Reading

When I started blogging, I had no idea the path it would take me. Six months ago, I was just a mom with a little bit of free time, a new laptop and a voice I thought someone might want to hear. Flash forward to today, my blog has become a part time job for me, having sponsored content, getting items for review, and getting to do guest posts on other blogs. It’s a dream come true, and I am so excited!Continue Reading
I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for BGCA. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
When I was a teen, AOL was a new thing. The internet was still a relatively unknown place, and it wasn’t as scary as it is now. My friends would come over to my house for a slumber party and we would spend the entire evening asking people “A/S/L?” and giggling with each other. We were 14 and innocent.
The place the internet has become now, is a very scary place, and kids much younger than 14 are on social media, sharing personal information, photos and talking with super creeps and they don’t even know it.Continue Reading
