Kajeet LG phone

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kajeet. All opinions are 100% mine. Having kids has been an amazing experience, especially when they’re in the toddler and pre-teen stages of life. However, when it comes to having a teenager, life gets a little more difficult. This is the time for kids to experience a little more independence, sometimes, independence that is outside of my comfort zone. Since my son is about to … [Read more...]

OREO Overload Edible Ice Cream Bowls Recipe #WiltonTreatTeam

Oreo Overload Edible Ice Cream Bowls Recipe #WiltonTreatTeam

I have officially vowed to NEVER complain about winter ever again. I don't care how cold it gets, I won't complain because I'm about to whine my way through a really hot summer. This snow bunny was not meant to endure 80+ degree days (don't laugh). I know for some of the Southern folks that the 80's feel amazing but anything over 75 or so is reaching my melting point. Thank goodness for things like ice cream, shaved ice and air conditioning. … [Read more...]

Food Find | Watermelon Cupcakes and Watermelon Frosting

Betty Crocker Watermelon Cupcakes

About a week ago, I was strolling through Target looking for three things I needed and probably twenty more that I didn't need. That's pretty much how every Target shopping trip goes. You've got this short list in your hand and by the time you get to the checkout lane, you find your cart is full of dozens of things you didn't know you wanted until you got there. Anyways, one of things not on my list was this box of Betty Crocker Watermelon … [Read more...]

My Girls and Me … Building Strong Bones Together with Viactiv

017

Did you know ... Almost 70% of women, on average, are calcium deficient. However, that number jumps significantly for teen girls: 86% of teen girls do not get enough calcium in their daily diets. This is critical because 95% of bone building happens by age 20. As the mom of two daughters, I often worry about providing my girls with nutritionally balanced meals. Given the fact I'm not a nutritionist or dietitian, I can't say with any certainty … [Read more...]

It's no secret that I love cooking for my family. It's not only my job, it's a passion of mine.

TotalProtect Home Warranty – The Affordable Way to Protect Appliances

tp11

It wasn't until last week that we realized how costly home ownership can be. Actually, it wasn't even as costly as it could have been but it was enough to grab our attention. A small piece of our clothes washer broke. That small piece ended up costing us almost $300 and a week without a washer to to do laundry. We were lucky that we happened to have the extra money at the time but if that had been a larger appliance like the hot water heater or … [Read more...]

Step Into My Computer Time Machine With Me #IntelAIO

I think about my childhood a lot and even compare it to the one my children are living. My how things have changed! I remember spending a lot of time outside, even in the bitter cold months of winter. When I wasn't outside playing jump rope, hop scotch, kick the can or tag with my neighborhood friends, I'd go inside and play on my old Nintendo. But that wasn't often. Technology was not part of my every day life. In fact, I didn't even own a … [Read more...]

6 Month Old Purebred Labrador

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Kennel Club. All opinions are 100% mine. For years, I’ve lived with the fact that I’m probably just not a dog person. They’re certainly cute and mostly friendly, but I’ve never had quite the same draw to dogs as I have had with cats. That is, until I met TINK. This adorable and sweet purebred Labrador Retriever puppy instantly captured my … [Read more...]
