I’m a compensated member of the Netflix Stream Team.

My kids ADORE the new Dragons: Race to the Edge now on Netflix. Have you had a chance to check it out yet? Here’s a look at the all-new Netflix original my kids can’t get enough of!

As an added treat, Netflix sent us a big box of goodies to help kick-off the new program. The kids could NOT be more thrilled! (Makes me want to have a Dragons viewing party, now!) Look at that awesome and authentic looking map!

Kids in the Kitchen, Vegetarian-Style #MakeYourMove

Preteen son using the Veggetti

I’ve partnered with Kohl’s for the #MakeYourMove campaign.  I mentioned in my last post how I've gotten my fitness groove back, and how exciting it is to see the changes to my body as well as to the fit in my clothing. My husband has joined me in this journey, too - we're eating healthier, working out everyday (sometimes twice) and we're really seeing the effects of these healthy changes in so many ways. While sitting at the dinner table a … Keep Reading

Making My Move with Kohl’s This Summer #MakeYourMove

Kohl's Make Your Move cute FILA SPORT® running capris

I’ve partnered with Kohl’s for the #MakeYourMove campaign.  2015 has been a doozy of a year, and I'm sad and ashamed to say that I lost my way a little, friends. All the hard work that I've done over the years to get my body (and me) back, I feel as though I completely undid it all (even though, I know it's not fully true). But, it sure felt that way. Trying to slip into outfits and things I used to wear for special occasions and such, only to … Keep Reading

Family Fun with Classics from Childhood #StreamTeam

Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated

I’m a compensated member of the Netflix Stream Team. I just read that it's the 30th anniversary for both "St Elmo's Fire" and "The Goonies." Thirtieth anniversary. HOLY HANNAH, I'm old. Haha. The kids and I have been reliving a few of the classics on Netflix lately, with it being particularly stormy, especially on days we wanted to go to the pool. But we're getting our fix of fun shows from when I was a kid, such as Scooby Doo, and the new … Keep Reading

Mom Gets The Night Off with Papa John’s – Worry Free Dinner with Better Ingredients

Picnic in the backyard with Papa John's

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Papa John's and Tapinfluence. Many years ago, when we were searching for homeopathic ways to help our daughter's ADHD, I stumbled across something called the Feingold Diet. (I've talked about this before). At the time, I'd thought we were doing pretty okay in the food department, but it wasn't until I poured over their list of "approved" and "unapproved" foods that I realized the stuff … Keep Reading

Most Heavenly, Easiest Raspberry Pie Recipe EVER!

Beautiful and easy raspberry pie recipe

I am a Goldrich Eggs ambassador.I'm a busy mom, and crazy happens (hence the name of this site). I walk to get the kids at school everyday, and I bring my wallet, place it in the stroller, so that I can show I.D. in case one of the kids has a substitute. On this particular day, I was juggling too many tasks and had forgotten it was in the stroller when I left the house to pick up my son from Driver's Ed, and this wasn't realized until we were … Keep Reading

Summer Family Indoor Fun with Netflix #StreamTeam

Mako Mermaids: Season 3

I’m a compensated member of the Netflix Stream Team. School's about to be out for the summer, hooray! Our days are about to be filled with backyard fun, swimming, traveling and ALL KINDS OF FUN! But, as we learned the very first week we moved here, IT RAINS! Ha! And some of our cherished summer days won't be swimming or outdoor days. We're going to have to come up with rainy day summer activities, where indoor tent-making, blanket forts, board … Keep Reading


Baby V hugging daddy

Surprise! We're moving you to Fort Bragg, because you promoted, and we need First Sergeants right now, so when you get here you'll probably get a company within a couple months. Surprise! No, no you're not getting a company. You've been away too long. Oh, and you're getting deployed. Surprise! Your husband isn't leaving for deployment when you thought he was, it's actually a full month later than you expected. Surprise! So, about that … Keep Reading
