Dad is really just a big kid. This has never been more clear to me than as my daughters discovered the world of Star Wars. While Dad was always willing to sit and play dolls when asked, he is thrilled when he is asked to play Star Wars action figures with the girls. Imagine his excitement […]
Last week my family and I attended our very first Orlando City Soccer game — what a fun night! Our attendance was sponsored by Neutrogena who has partnered with MLS to raise awareness of the importance of skin protection on and off the field as part of the Choose Skin Health campaign. Whether you are playing soccer […]
When we first set out to teach our daughter how to ride her bike, I pictured a fun afternoon with a warm breeze laughing as she peddled faster and faster until she was riding around the block with ease. The reality of teaching her to ride a bike was anything but easy — she just […]
How will you keep your family cool and entertained this summer? If your kids are like mine, they love to splash in the water every chance they get. From swimming in the pool to running in the sprinklers they love to get wet. On of their favorite water toys continues to be the Step 2 […]
My daughters welcomed spring with a splash. But as they joyfully jumped into the pool for the first time this season, I took a look at our neglected porch. Layers of spring pollen and filth covered everything. After some serious cleaning, the patio was once again a clean slate. In partnership with Better Homes and […]
My kids don’t eat a lot of sandwiches because their lunch of choice is a meat and cheese roll up. I am not sure why they are anti bread (unless it is a dinner roll), but that’s what they like. Because turkey/cheese and ham/cheese rollups are a staple in our house I was intrigued when I learned […]
The end of the school year is an important rite of passage for students of all ages, but for graduating seniors it is a monumental occasion. One that should be celebrated and reflected upon. This year I will wish two special young ladies a happy graduation as they move onto the next chapter in their […]
Family adventure awaits in Florida’s Gulf County, and you are invited to explore what this quiet strip of coast has to offer for a chance to win a family vacation. I had the opportunity to visit GCFL two years ago, and my family is still dreaming of returning to the beautiful and untouched Florida treasure.
Whether you pack lunches the night before or the morning of, it is a chore. A chore I choose to take on so to make sure I know what my girls are eating during the day. We’ve come a long way in regard to school lunches, but not far enough. Revolution Foods is one company trying […]
Secrets Resorts and Spas are located in the Caribbean and Mexico, perfect for a short getaway. Luxurious accommodations and beautiful beach-front scenery make these resorts perfect for anniversaries and honeymoons. From adventures like snorkeling and boating to relaxing on the beach there is something for every couple.
Cheese is one of my favorite food groups. In fact, I have this food theory that any food can be made better with either cheese or chocolate added. Go ahead, test me. I have yet to find a food (that I like to eat) that isn’t better with either cheese or chocolate (or both!). Carrots? […]
Life with eczema is a constant series of itchy, scaly, red patches. It’s miserable. But what’s more miserable than my skin itching, is watching my daughters scratch at their eczema patches. I know firsthand what it is like to itch all of the time, so it breaks my heart to know they are dealing with […]
On chilly evenings there is nothing better than snuggling with the family under a fuzzy blanket sipping hot chocolate and watching a good movie. It is one of my family’s favorite pastimes and the inspiration behind this Reindeer Hot Chocolate Gift Set. As the holidays get closer I find myself scrambling for gifts for everyone on […]
Before kids, I had this idea that date night would continue to be a regular thing. Not every week, but perhaps every other. And certainly once a month wouldn’t be too much to ask for. Fast forward two kids, and I am pretty sure it has been more than six months since our last date […]
When I was asked to review a few Barbie items I said sure. My daughters are always game for checking out hot new toys. I figured they would send a couple of dolls, and my girls would be thrilled. Imagine my surprised when a Barbie Dream House, four Barbie Fashionista Dolls, a Barbie Rainbow Hair […]
