This is a sponsored post to share the awesomeness of Jouviance anti-aging from The Women Bloggers, Kendal King Group, #SoapboxInfluence and @SoapboxKKG. All opinions and wrinkles are my own.

Making My Move with Kohl’s This Summer #MakeYourMove

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 […]

Help Kids Create Their Own Destiny #streamteam

I’m a compensated member of the Netflix Stream Team. Have you ever asked your child/ren what they want to be when they grow up? “Someday, I want to be…” or “Someday, I will…” – those are a couple of GREAT questions to ask about their hopes and dreams for their futures. Netflix has some wonderful selections […]

Riding a Two Wheel Bike {For the First Time}

On a warm summer Saturday on the first of June, we took the training wheels off her Princesses bike, and with my husband’s hand on her back, she wobbled her way down the sidewalk. Her baby sister lay in wait, watching, bowl-legged walking as fast as her chubby legs would let her after her sister, […]

How a Fever, Sleepless Nights, & Obnoxious Kids Changed Me as a Mom Forever

After getting sick late Wednesday night, I spent the last part of the week in a fever-induced haze. Tired, rundown, haggard, vacillating between sweating and freezing, all while battling a suspicious fever that persisted with no other symptoms or ailments to warrant or explain its existence. I did my damnedest to scrub the evil fever from my […]

My Right Hand Baby {Video}

I turn the corner in the kitchen, and she immediately begins to wail. She has to have me in her sights every waking moment, or else, she’s a massive pile of whimpering infant. I have never, ever had a baby this attached to me so much. It’s almost… foreign to me, the changes between this child and […]

When Pause is Needed

Back when I was a kid, if we liked an evening show, we’d have to be done with chores, eating, homework, baths/showers to sit down to be able to watch, or we’d miss it. You would hear “Shh, the program is on!” being called from parents to rowdy children in the next room, because you […]

Giving Mom a Heart Attack Like A Boss

Baby Dude was steadily denying us his ability to wake from his long nap. (I worked them hard at the playground today). V decided to intervene, at first, she tickled his toes, trying to reach for him, and then, I turned my head and my world exploded. “HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!!!” I yelled, and everyone came running. […]
