It boggles my mind that fourth of July is next week - this summer is already seeming to fly by!  I feel like Memorial Day weekend was just yesterday.  Since we only have 6 days 'til the 4th, I thought I'd highlight some fun Red, White & Blue fashion for next week. ELLE Crochet Maxi Dress, Kohl's Normally $68.00, on sale for $47.60 Rhinestoned … [Read more...]

Mom confession: I'm terrible with my kid's artwork. I rarely save it. I always pat myself on the back and thank myself for my future daughter in law that I'm not saving every little trinket and bit that comes home with my kids because year after year, it can add up!

It was 3rd grade and we had moved to a new state.  I was the new kid again and struggling to fit in.  I had already had a rough new-kid entry as the week before two girls on the playground had told me that the skirt I was wearing was ugly and stupid.  I remember throwing away the skirt and never wearing it again, I was so upset by their words. But … [Read more...]

So I'm back from a family road trip to Ohio. I had been invited to a quick trip to the Proctor & Gamble offices in Cincinnati for a two day conference with a few bloggers. I jumped on the opp since my parents and sister live out that way too and we spent the full week out there! The trip was a ton of fun and I really had a fab time the days … [Read more...]

In-store only! If my kids saw this, they'd drag me to Toys R Us by any means possible by June 29th! Now through June 29th, you can put $1 down and reserve Skylanders SwapForce for when it comes out in October later this year. I'm sure other retailers will follow soon and I definitely recommend doing it as Skylanders are still crazy popular and I … [Read more...]
