Oh summer how you tease. These days we have at least an hour before we have to be out the door, and that’s on days we actually go somewhere. But in less than a month the girls will be back to school, and we will have 30 minutes from wake to out the door. (Unless, of course, I […]
You save Box Tops for Education for your students’ school, right? It is the easiest way to support schools with a monetary donation that doesn’t cost you anything extra. Just clip Box Tops off General Mills products you already buy, save them in a bag and send them to your students’ school. I started clipping Box Tops before kids, […]
Who else is having a great summer? Our days are spent swimming, crafting, playing games, building forts, etc. Everything a summer should be. But in between all of the fun, there is a lot of downtime. When not playing with her dolls or reading in her free time, my K loves to be on the […]
This post brought to you by Weight Watchers® Ice Cream. The content and opinions expressed below are that of The Suburban Mom. I have a major sweet tooth – major. Every night after the kids go to bed, I crave something sweet. It is a battle because I am also trying to get myself in […]

The Honey Girls band includes Teegan, Risa and Viv three best friends who share a love of music and a message about friendship and positive self-esteem. Each […]
Every time one of my girls gets the slightest cold they get a cough that lasts and lasts and lasts. Out of nowhere two days of sniffles turns into two months of coughs. And, of course, their cough is always worse at night (and during nap time). Over the last two weeks we have been […]
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. […]
