I am so excited about the newest piece of furniture in my house. It is exactly what I have wanted for ages, and now it is mine. It looks perfect, it will be fun to decorate each season and best of all this Providence Buffet Table/Media Console from Better Homes and Gardens for Walmart has storage! For […]
From short trips to the beach, weekend trips to Disney and a seven-hour road trip to North Carolina, my family has plans to be on the road a lot this summer. Destination fun! But on the way to fun, I’ve gotta keep the kiddos fed. Because inevitably someone is always hungry. Always. This summer families on the […]
It’s pool season, and my girls have already begun the daily request to go swimming. While my oldest has turned into a fish, diving and swimming, my little needs a bit more confidence. She is taking swim lessons, but for now she prefers to stay on the steps. To help her gain confidence in the water, I got her a Stearns Puddle Jumper.
Fairies, adventure, love and rock and roll! That is the new animated film by George Lucas Strange Magic, and my girls loved it. Now available on DVD, Strange Magic is a magical story about fairies who just happen to know some very popular rock and roll tunes. So popular that my daughters were amazed when mom and […]
A good sandwich always makes me think of my grandfather. He loved a thick sandwich with meat, cheese and veggies piled high. He used to call it an Army man’s sandwich. Of course, a sandwich isn’t complete without my favorite condiment — mayonnaise. And making a sandwich with Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise just got easier with […]
“The Motherhood would like to send you a box filled with some of our favorite things. How does that sound?” Ummm, yes please! When that question arrived in my inbox I didn’t hesitate. Of course, who wouldn’t want to receive a box filled with surprise gifts? Arriving just in time for Mother’s Day, when my box […]
Have you experienced that stale car smell? Or even worse, the dreaded car funk? Don’t be embarrassed, everyone has. The important thing is to do something about it. The easy solution is an air freshener, but not all air fresheners are equal. In the past they were big, bulky and a bit of an eyesore. But thanks to the new PERK Visor Wrap, you can have fresh air without a giant air freshener.
As a germaphobe, asthmatic with serious allergies breathing clean air is really important to me. I have always run several air purifiers throughout my home. It is important to me to remove pollutants from the air my family breathes for our health. The newest addition to my arsenal of air purifiers is the Holmes® Smart Air Purifier with WeMo.
Paper or plastic? No, I am not talking about shopping bags (the answer to that should be a reusable tote!), I am talking about your preferred method of payment. Are you a paper or plastic shopper? I used to be paper (and metal), but in recent years I have become an almost 100% plastic shopper. […]
My love for a good TV series (and movies) is well documented. I really like to watch TV, I can’t help but to be drawn into a good story. So it should come as no surprise that I am excited for the season premiere of a show I was recently introduced to called, “When Calls the Heart.” The […]
When my daughter started Kindergarden, I searched the Internet for ideas about what to send her for lunch. For a brief moment I toyed with the idea of creating fancy shapes and gourmet lunches with cute food art. The Pinterest pictures were so cute. I scrolled through hundreds of adorable ideas. And then I came to my senses — food art? That is way too complicated for an everyday lunch.
When it comes to car seats, I don’t mess around. My girls have been (and will continue to be in) their respective car seats long past basic standards. My seven-year-old first grader is still in a five-point harness, and until she outgrows it — that is where she will stay. To me car seats are […]
Adorable monkeys plus a heartwarming underdog story is the recipe for success with Disneynature’s Monkey Kingdom. The documentary about a tribe of monkeys in South Asia tells the story of Maya, a scrappy female monkey at the bottom of the family hierarchy. Because of her low position in the class system, she last in line for […]
It’s pool season! Which means it’s time to grab your sunglasses and your suit and make a splash. Can you hear the squeals of delight? With all of the time we plan to spend in the pool and at the beach over the coming months, it is time to stock up on sunscreen. My babies and I have […]
I am a type-A perfectionist. Stress has been part of my life for as long as I can remember, in fact, I remember my parents teaching me methods to relive stress as a young girl. I have always dealt with stress. Now that I am in my (ah-em) mid-thirties, I am finally starting to get a […]
