Minnie Mouse baby shower

Pink zebra baby shower center pieces

If you have questions about anything, please leave them below and I will help you right away! Every good shower starts … [Read more...]

You at the Center

You at the Center

My whole life has revolved around doing things for others, ever since I remember. I never think of myself, only others, and I hate that as much as I love it. I love helping others, but I also wish that I could feel ok about helping myself.  I was offered a chance to join a 100-day course called You At The Center and after thinking about it, I decided that it was worth a shot. If nothing else, maybe I will learn to put myself first on some level, no matter how small.  YOU at the … [Read more...]

What phone should I buy?

Samsung S5

I have had my Samsung S4 for a while now, basically since it came out.  I adore my phone, it still works perfectly most of them time, the battery  life is still good enough to last me all day; in general? Things are good! However, I am bored and ready to day dream about a new hot phone. As a Verizon #VZWBuzz group member I spend a bit of each day thinking about technology and the new gadgets that are being released every day.  What phone should I buy?  iPhone 6 The good … [Read more...]

Leap Frog Leap Band #FitMadeFun

Leap Band

LeapFrog has been a favorite around our house since my first son was very young, and now that they are 8 and 10, several of our LeapFrog products have been passed on to friends with younger kids. Thankfully LeapFrog just launched one of my favorite products that I've seen them come out with; the LeapBand!  The LeapBand is "fit made fun," it encourages your kids to be active. The LeapBand is similar to a watch in style (which kids love), and it has a little pet inside. The pet is chosen … [Read more...]

Funny puppies

babies and dogs

When I'm having a rough day, I love to watch silly animal videos, they crack me up! Those adorable puppies (and kitties) doing adorable things, it's just too much cuteness to handle! How can you be in a bad mood watching these? Dogs who have their own rap song- Some dogs who hate bath time- Finally, some babies and dogs having a little conversation... so cute! Don't you feel better about your day now? Yes? Good, I'm glad! Now go out and conquer the world! 'This is a … [Read more...]

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 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...]
