A couple of weeks ago, I had a MEGA purge in our basement of like 80% of our boys' toys. It was awesome. I was able to get rid of a ton of things they play with but the one toy genre that I couldn't touch because they are sacred in our house was Legos. We have dozens of Lego sets and drawers full of Legos - we're a huge Lego family and both of my … [Read more...]

I'm not a watch-a-movie-more-than-once kind of person but Pitch Perfect is my exception. I've probably seen it a dozen times and it's my favorite movie of all time! That's why I'm so excited for tomorrow's theater release of Pitch Perfect 2 - I'm already planning my girls night out with a bunch of friends who are also Pitch Perfect fans. So … [Read more...]

We had many speakers on Day 2 of the Disney Social Media Moms conference but the one who stuck with me the most wasVivienne Harr, the 11-year-old founder of Make a Stand. Here's some backstory from her website: When Vivienne Harr was eight years old, she saw a photo of two boys, her age, from Nepal living in modern-day slavery. She said: … [Read more...]

I wanted to show you what using Nailtique has done for my nails. It's been 8 days since I did my own nails. I put this cream colored nail polish on LAST Tuesday when I posted this review. I did a layer of the Nailtique before and after I put the nail polish on. Obviously I need to remove it but I am impressed with the fact that it has only JUST … [Read more...]

We're hooooommmmee! I can't say that I'm thrilled to be home and back as reality isn't anywhere as near as being in Disney. The Disney Social Media Moms Conference is always such an amazing event. It's the only event I attend where I feel that my family is so totally welcome. There's one full day of conference sessions for attendees but Disney … [Read more...]

I've been totally MIA because the past two weeks have been some crazy scheduling. Cole had his First Communion and then we left a few days later for Orlando and Disney for the Disney Social Media Moms Conference! I will definitely be blogging about our experiences and sharing more soon but first I gotta get groceries, take to the cat to the vet … [Read more...]

It's a little less than two weeks until the big Red Nose Day on NBC! In case you missed it last week, Walgreens is spearheading this awesome initiative that will culminate on May 21st with a live 3-hour event on NBC that will feature celebrities like Christina Aguilera, Jack Black, Bill Gates, Will Farrell, Emily Blunt, John Legend, Jennifer Hudon, … [Read more...]

We're leaving TODAY for Disney World - wahoooo! It's been so busy that I haven't had time to really let it sink in with me or the kids but I'm excited that today is the day! The folks at Disney sent us this cute little care package yesterday and included in the care package was a Big Hero 6 Coloring Book. I started playing around with it with … [Read more...]

My aunt has amazing nails. She was visiting last weekend and I have always noticed how long and great her nails looked so I asked her about them. She shared that she uses Nailtiques Formula 2 Nail Growth ($8.99 on Amazon). I borrowed some to put it on and ended up ordering yesterday! I don't necessarily have thin nails but I hate now little my … [Read more...]

Saturday was Cole's First Communion and on Friday, I still had no idea what I was wearing. Nothing in my closet seemed fitting or wasn't something I hadn't already worn recently. I had taken a quick stop in Ann Taylor and Banana Republic and I struck out there. But Friday Jon sent me on a mission to our local Sears to pick something up for him … [Read more...]
