cars 2 bedroom decor

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine. When the Disney Cars movie first came to the big screen, my son was about 5 years old. I remember his excitement over seeing his favorite thing to play with come to life. And honestly, it was the first "boy movie" that even I got a little excited over. And now here we are, eight years later, and Cars has since grown up along with us with the Cars 2 … [Read more...]

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sprint. All opinions are 100% mine. As little as a year ago, I wasn't giving much thought to our family cell phone needs. However, all three of our children are in school now and I'm thinking a lot more about how we can communicate outside of the home. I would never have considered cell phones as a good option because up until now, cell phone plans with unlimited talk/text and … [Read more...]

After School Snacking Made Easy With Campbell’s SpaghettiOs® MicrOs™

New Campbells Spaghetti Os MicrOs

This blog post is part of a compensated program with Campbell Soup Company. Opinions expressed are my own.

Mess-Free Kid Crafting Fun with Beados!

Beados Bunny Drying

Product provided. When it comes to crafts and kids, I tend to avoid the whole mess as much as possible. In general, I find crafting to be expensive, messy and somehow always involves me with fingers glued together (don't ask). But then I got my hands on a new crafting toy from Moose Toys that actually makes the whole experience enjoyable. Maybe it's because my daughters are getting older (and slightly less messy) or maybe it's because this is a … [Read more...]

Seeing is Believing – Ultra HD in store events happening now at Best Buy #UHDatBestBuy

Best Buy Wall Mounted TV

Less than a month ago, my husband and I got busy giving our living room a complete makeover. The walls got a fresh coat of paint, new furniture was ordered and one quick stop at a Best Buy store led us to order an amazing television and sound bar to complete the makeover. A week later we had a professional team from Geek Squad in our home installing the new tv and mounting it on the wall. But before that, we had to go through the somewhat … [Read more...]

Chicken & Veggie Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe with Calphalon Contemporary Cookware

Chicken and Vegetable Fettuccine Alfredo Dinner Recipe

Calphalon provided me with the products featured. In my kitchen, there's something I love more than anything else when it comes time to cook our family meals. It's a simple pot rack hanging just above the island countertop. My husband might disagree as he often finds his forehead making unfortunate meetings with the pots that dangle from the rack. However, I just adore it because it's home to my eclectic collection of pots, pans and … [Read more...]
