Saying More Than “Thanks!” to Vets This Veterans Day #sharefolgers

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of The Folger Coffee Company. The opinions and text are all mine. We drove over an hour to get to my endocrinologist appointment that morning. My husband left work early in order to take me, having to return afterward, so he was in Army uniform. […]

Save Your Skin (and Money) This Fall with Walgreens #FallSkinSavings

This is a sponsored conversation Sponsored post by Mirum Shopper. All opinions are my own. Fall is here, and the colder weather isn’t too far behind. It’s already starting too cool off here just a little, and I love it. I’m still outside everyday during the day enjoying the sunshine and moderate temps while walking […]

Mobile WiFi On-The-Go with AT&T Unite Explore by NETGEAR #MilLifeConnected

This is a sponsored post by the AT&T/NETGEAR Wifi Family via MSB New Media, LLC When you’re a family on the go, particularly a busy military family as we are, data needs to be handy and accessible, especially if you’re a work-at-home parent like myself. We are pulled eleventy-billion directions at times, with our prescribed […]

Check Out The Dash Robot at Best Buy #TechToys

This is a sponsored post for Best Buy. I couldn’t have been but nine-or-so years old when one of my mother’s day care parents bought our family an IBM computer for Christmas as a “thank you” for taking such wonderful care of their children. He was an IBMer, so he got a great deal on […]

Taco Macaroni for School Lunch #BackToSchool #NaturalFoods

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Horizon Organic. Back to school time is one of my favorite times of the year. Maybe it’s because of the return to a routine after a lazy, crazy summer? Could be it’s the fresh haircuts on my kids, the fancy new duds my kids choose for their new […]

A Little Family Time with Netflix

I’m a compensated member of the Netflix Stream Team. Family movie night. Car-ride duets. Weekend dance fests. The best moments happen when families come together, and much of that happens over music and entertainment. It’s why 40% of families say they routinely watch all sorts of shows together. It’s also why you grow nostalgic for the music […]

Beer Cheese Pretzel Dip with Snyder’s of Hanover #PretzelsBaby

This recipe is sponsored by Snyder’s of Hanover. I have a hearty love for pretzels. Some people fantasize about candy houses, or bacon houses. Me? I want a big ol’ pretzel house with a walk-in pantry filled with pretzels and pretzel buns next to the biggest vat of melty cheese sauce ready for dipping (or […]

New! JOHNSON’S HEAD-TO-TOE baby cleansing cloths Make Parents Lives Easier #LittleWonders

I’m a member of the JOHNSON’S® Baby CARES council. I am consistently amazed at how filthy my kids can seemingly get when they play outside. I mean, seriously, was I this dirty when I was a kid? As a former tomboy, I’m sure my mom has her fair share of stories she could share about my kid-like filth, […]

Be Your Own Beautiful at Walgreens #ShopTheClassics

This is a sponsored conversation for Mirum Shopper. All opinions are my own. Be prepared for an 80’s flashback to helmet hair, people. (Sensitive viewers, shield your eyes now!) Picture that helmet-haired preteen Lisa up there with her favorite 80’s outfit on sneaking into the family bathroom. I have no idea what possessed me to do […]

Fun in the Sun with FabFitFun! #FFFSummer

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of FabFitFun. Who doesn’t love getting fun packages in the mail? I TOTALLY DO! *raises hands, legs, errythang!* I liken it to being a kid on Christmas morning, excited to open presents and see what goodies lay before you. Except, instead of gifts under a […]
