New Chocolate Flavored Cough Medicine for Kids from Dr. Cocoa #DrCocoaReliefWithASmile

Dr Cocoa Chocolate Flavored Cough Medicine

School officially started for all three of my kids a little over a month ago. As much as I look forward to the days that I get to put them on the big, yellow bus for a day of learning (and a much needed break for me), there's also something I dread about it. Germs. Viruses. The Flu! Within a week of the first day of school, someone always brings home a virus that slowly creeps through each member of our family and we spend the next … [Read more...]

Cat Lovers! There’s a New Fresh Step® Lightweight Extreme Litter at Target #FreshStepCats

Fresh Step Lightweight Extreme Cat Litter

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fresh Step Lightweight Extreme Litter for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Anyone that knows me in person or online knows that I'm a cat lover through and through. There isn't a cat out there that I've haven't been able to form a special, best-friend kind of bond with. I hate the play favorites but of all the cats that have come and gone in my life, Muffy, our short-hair Exotic, is my … [Read more...]

It’s Time to Come Clean and Talk About a NEW Bathroom Routine with Cottonelle!

#LetsTalkBums with Cottonelle Wet and Dry

Thanks to Cottonelle for sponsoring today's discussion. There are very few things that go on in my life that I'm unwilling to talk about. That short list includes religion, politics and intimate moments where my husband is concerned. Since becoming a mom, the privacy I once knew and loved has vanished. There comes a point where your life becomes all about baby vomit, dirty diapers, crazy poo paintings on the wall (ask if you dare) and all the … [Read more...]

Halloween Pumpkin Spice Caramel Crunchies Recipe #WiltonTreatTeam

Caramel Pretzel Pumpkins #WiltonTreatTeam

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday of the year. As a kid, I loved it because I got to dress up and make myself sick on all of the trick-or-treat candy. Now as an adult, I love it because of all the fun treats I get to bake for my kids. Wilton is helping inspire some of my goodies this year because of all the new Halloween themed products they're coming out with, especially the pumpkin spiced candy melts. They're so easy to use for … [Read more...]

Stay Connected for Work, School & Play with Acer C720P Chromebook #IntelChrome

047

Work Anywhere While I had zero plans of doing any work whatsoever during our recent vacation, life doesn't always go the way you plan. Fortunately, I did manage to plan ahead and made just enough space inside our over-packed minivan to fit my compact Acer C720P Chromebook. It's a good thing I did because the Chromebook came in very handy when I had a few work deadlines pop up that I hadn't planned on. Since the Chromebook starts up in as … [Read more...]

Anna and Elsa Frozen Makeovers from the Disney World Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Anna Elsa Sisters

It was this time a week ago that our family was experiencing our second day of Disney World when we were making our way to the back of Cinderella's castle to take our daughters to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for their scheduled appointments. We were trudging through another soggy, rainy day and thankful for the cool, dry relief that the boutique offered. Who can't appreciate that when it never ever seems to stop raining in Orlando? After we … [Read more...]

Sharing a Sweet Future with Truvia

TruviaSupportsWFP

It was just about this time a little over 10 years ago that our little family of three had our first experience with hunger. I was at home raising our son while my husband worked long hours for very low wages. We found ourselves living paycheck to paycheck, often with barely enough money to buy groceries until his next paycheck came. During that time, we found ourselves skipping meals because we just couldn't afford to eat three times a day. It … [Read more...]
