#FavBabyFirsts with Tammin Sursok and JOHNSON’S Baby {Giveaway}

I’m a JOHNSON’S Baby ambassador.

What were your favorite baby firsts with your children? Those first words are unforgettable, aren’t they? That first “mama” or “dada” or their first time crawling or walking – just breathtaking. Those memories get etched into your mama-brain for eternity.

Last week, I had an opportunity to interview actress Tammin Sursok (from Pretty Little Liars) along with other JOHNSON’S Baby ambassadors and discuss our babies’ favorite baby firsts. Our spotty connection and tech problems didn’t stop us from the fun discussion gushing over our kids, though! Click below to rewatch our talk about her first year as a first-time mother.

I’ve practically grown up with JOHNSON’S Baby in my house, whether used on me, my siblings, or on my own children. I love that JOHNSON’S has come out with a gorgeous FIRST TOUCH® gift set – chock full of things for baby’s first bath and more.

Celebrate Mini Milestones with Netflix #StreamTeam


I’m a compensated member of the Netflix Stream Team. My seven-year-old had her first sleepover about a month ago. Of course, I was nervous nelly - how could she spend a night away from me? From us? But c'mon - girls and costumes and giggling and fingernail painting, it's just too big to fight. Plus, it was with one of my best friend's, her daughter asked and we accepted. It couldn't have been more perfect. Even at seven, almost eight, we're … Keep Reading

Happiness is ______ {2014-W42} #happinessis

making Halloween cookies

We spent 52 weeks in 2013 celebrating what made us happy, and it WAS a fantastic year. Let's make 2014 the year where we really truly focus on surrounding ourselves with only joy and happiness all year round, every month, every week, every day. Tell me, what makes you happy? What is it that you do that you can't get enough of? What makes your soul shine, your eyes beam, and your insides sparkle? Happiness is so very many things for me, and … Keep Reading

The Holidays are HOW CLOSE!?

Holiday Guide Sneak Peek

This is a compensated post that contains products given and affiliate links. I can't even believe I'm about to say this, but (whispers) there are only 64 days until Christmas. I. am. NOT. READY. I mean, it isn't even Halloween yet and I know you're wagging your finger at me. "Lisa?! Why are you bringing this up right now? OMG!" I'm with you! I am! I'm in denial that the holidays are coming up soon, and I'm just putting one foot in … Keep Reading

Mondays of Doom™


My body clock is getting used to the early wake-up call, so I'm the first one up on the weekends now. 7:15 - 7:30am the latest. I know what trying to force myself back to sleep feels like (awful), so I don't fight the "awake," I just get up, brew some coffee, and go. To quote Anna, "The sky's awake, so I'm awake." This makes for a somewhat easier Monday morning, for me - waking up from the weekend of "sleeping late" doesn't mean much to me, … Keep Reading

Quick and Easy Lunch Solutions for Busy Parents #ShineAnytime

Jimmy Dean Delights Entrees

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Jimmy Dean®. We knew moving here that my husband was going to have to commute a little (no worse than he did in San Antonio). With his new position and new demands for his time, he can't come home for lunch like he used to some years ago. He has to remain on post, and is at the mercy of what's available restaurant-wise for him, or he'll bring something from home. If you've followed this site for some … Keep Reading
