This conversation is sponsored by General Mills® via Burst Media. The opinions and text are mine. One of my favorite memories of visiting my grandparents as a kid was our traditional trip to the grocery store to buy ANY cereal we wanted. This was a huge treat because as the oldest of seven kids I […]
Does anyone else get overwhelmed by the sheer number of hair care products out there, or is it just me?!? I’ve tried many, many different products over the years, and some are worth repeating and others just aren’t. Well, I’m here to tell you about a keeper … MopTop Haircare. I admit that I was a little skeptical about yet another haircare line for frizz free curls, but MopTop products really have proven themselves to be awesome!
There is no way to put into words how unique and amazing my mom is, and I’m sure almost everyone feels the same about their own mom! I’m continually discovering aspects of my personality that I can trace back to my mom – which I love. As I ponder some of the things that make me happy (reading and chocolate, to name a few), I’ve come to realize that I love them BECAUSE my mom loved them.
Whenever I think back on my childhood, I picture my mom reading. Whenever she had down time (which wasn’t often with seven kids), she was reading. On long drives, she would read. When we went on vacations, she would read. When she locked herself in the bathroom, she would read – haha. And now I do the same thing!
So, this is a post I thought I would never be qualified to write … at least I hoped I’d never become an expert at dealing with dreaded lice! But, I’m coming to you now as a seasoned veteran of the war against these horrible, nasty, persistent little pests.
Let me start from the beginning. I have a first grader with long, thick, thick, thick (Did I mention her hair is thick?!?) gorgeous hair. At the end of the Christmas break, she started complaining about her head itching, so I casually checked her head only to find the tell-tale white nits buried deep in there. I was horrified! I cancelled all our plans, called any friends we’d been in recent contact with, loaded the three kids in the car and headed straight for the drug store. I bought everything I could find, spent a fortune and went home to begin the war!
Congratulations to the giveaway winner ~ Heather Thomas! I think it’s every child’s dream to have the perfect playhouse … a place to escape, relax and let imaginations run wild! While my kids are generally content with a thrown together chair-and-blanket “fort,” I can only imagine how their eyes would light up if I was […]
There is just something special about decorating your home with photos taken by you or a loved one. I grew up with a photographer dad who painstakingly created beautiful photo collages that hung throughout our home. Fortunately, I’m parenting in the age of technology, and I don’t have to cut and paste my photos to display them. All I have to do is find a good photo print company online and let them do all the work.

A bowl, is a bowl, is a bowl – right?? Wrong!! The creators of the Obol have completely redesigned the standard bowl into something that is pure genius! This very sturdy and stable bowl is designed with an upper section to hold cereal (or anything else) and the bottom area holds the milk. You just swoop a bite from the top into the bottom area as you eat. Each bite stays crispy and delicious.

If you’re a crafter (and even if you’re not) I’m sure you’ve heard of Silhouette cutting machines … they’re amazing!! I was lucky enough to have the chance to try out a Silhouette Cameo .. and let me just say ‘WOW!’ My mind was blown by all the capabilities of this little machine. It plugs into your PC or Mac® just like a home printer, but instead of printing it uses a small blade to cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric and more up to 12″ wide and 10 feet long. And to top it off, it can even register and cut printed materials. The possibilities are literally limitless.
My mind was a little blown, and I wasn’t exactly sure where to start. So, I went to Pinterest and started exploring. Silhouette has a Pinterest page, but that’s only the beginning. There are so many cute projects out there that I’m excited to try.

Once upon a time, I would have considered myself a crafter … but then I had kids. Life got crazy busy, and I admit that I’ve lost touch with all the cool crafting trends and products that are out there. I’m also on a tighter budget then I was in my single-crafting days. So, I […]
