Hilarious social media cliches

Social media cliches

We all know someone like each of the people in this video, right? What is your social personality? Do you think before you post? Recently a friend of a friend passed away and her social media presence was one of the things that was left behind, and everyone was combing through it. It is crazy to think that what you post today will always be around, even if you delete it, you never know who got a screenshot before you did. For instance; we've all seen these major companies have a Twitter … [Read more...]

Frito-Lay and Skylanders

Frito-Lay and Skylanders

Disclosure: Sponsored by Frito-Lay, all opinions are my own My kids are finally to an age where they will all do almost anything that I take them to do; they aren't scared of much anymore. We have a huge water park near our home, Water World, and I have been waiting to take them until I was sure that they would enjoy every single ride that they have there. Water World isn't a cheap place to go, which is why we don't buy season passes, but it *is* super fun! I thought that this summer would be … [Read more...]

How to acid stain concrete for beginners

How to acid stain concrete

Recently we bought our new house and decided to acid stain the concrete in the basement. I had seen it on Pinterest and thought that it was gorgeous, but I was super nervous that it would be hard, and turn out terrible. Isn't it for professionals only? Nope. We decided to try it after watching tons of videos and reading plenty of "how-to" guides.  We found our acid stains on the Direct Colors website, we looked locally too, but Direct Colors had the best pricing. As it turns out, they … [Read more...]

Frito-Lay and Skylanders

Frito-Lay and Blippar

Well I've got some good news, and I've got some bad news. Summer vacation is quickly drawing to a close; there you have it, the good news and the bad news all at once, depending on the day, right? I decided that this year we would do a “summer bucket list,” but because we spent most of summer break moving and getting the house to a livable state, unpacking, etc. we didn’t end up doing most of the things on that list. There is one thing that I am not willing to give up on though; Water World. … [Read more...]

Visit Missouri

Ozarks

Disclosure: 'This is a Fashionista Events opportunity.' I know that I've talked about my desire to visit Missouri before on Moose and Tater, but recently I've been secretly planning a road trip with my mom and the kiddos. I would love to drive across the country to the East and wind up at the coast somewhere. One of the stops that I know we will be making if we go is Missouri, my mom dreamed of taking us there when we were kids, and now I would be the one to bring that dream to … [Read more...]

I am just not ready for that yet, I want the summer to stay forever; minus the extreme heat... since I don't have air conditioning right now. I … [Read more...]

Preparing for bad weather

The Weather Channel app

Colorado, and other states, have been seeing some really crazy weather recently. I know that this is pretty normal for spring/early summer, and because I know that, I also know that preparedness is very important. We all talk a big game about being ready, and most of us know what we should do in order to be ready but we don't do it. I have an "it will never happen to me" mentality that I know is silly and will bite me at some point. Let's talk about some things that you/we can do to prepare for … [Read more...]

Paying with Isis Wallet #PaySmarter

Isis Wallet

“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf ofMom Central Consulting for Isis Wallet. I received a promotional item to facilitate my review." Have you ever thought about money, actual cash, being phased out? I first started thinking about it a long time ago when I read a book that talked about it. I didn't think it could ever really become a reality, how could it? Now, in the days of so much amazing technology, I can see that it is really possible! So many … [Read more...]

Skylanders party

Frito-Lay Skylanders Party

This weekend we moved into our new house, well... kind of. We signed paperwork and then went over to introduce ourselves to our new neighbors. I thought it would be awesome to round everyone up to join in our Frito-Lay and Skylanders party! I had been planning this party for a couple of weeks, and I knew just how I wanted it to be, and it just worked out that we got to invite our new neighbors! Lucky for me, we have a nice park very close to the house, so all of the kids gathered … [Read more...]
