#GetGoing with Jif To Go Dippers! #MC #Sponsored


It seems that in our culture we are always running, whether it's to work, the gym, to pick the kids up or wherever else we "have to go".   We spend a lot of time in the car, on the train, etc. and at my house, this often means that we are eating on the go as well.  With children, I find this extremely difficult because I want them to eat healthy snacks that I know will help with their growth and development.  I also want them to be kept full at soccer, gymnastics, ballet, etc.  Sadly, it's often ...

The Sprint Network – An Inside Look

Most people don't get the opportunity to tour a cell site. In fact, most of us probably don't even give a second thought to the vast network it takes to make it possible for us to talk anywhere we please these days. Disclosure: This post is part of my participation in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf Influence Central for Sprint. I received sample devices to facilitate this review.

Enjoying Family – The Beauty of Rest

Sometimes life is crazy. There's days that the laundry doesn't get folded, dishes don't all get done, dinner is sandwiches and all we do is just hang out. When life gets busy, days like this are essential. We have so little time to really just be together as a family, so making time where we all just get to do nothing for one day is so great. We have to allow ourselves and our children time to recuperate and recover from a busy week. We need to give our family time to come together and just ... [ Read More ]

Jumping and Jamming with Gymboree Play & Learn


Four year olds have a LOT of energy.  Like, a LOT.  Probably about a million times more than I have.  And when you don't expend this energy on a regular basis, you know what happens?  They drive you INSANE.  True story. As the summer sadly came to an end, so did my days of countless hours spent outside with the neighbors watching my daughter run, play, bike & swim.  All of our schedules have changed, everyone is back to school - part time, if not full time - and us teachers, are back to ...

Pet Treats featuring @MintiesTreats and Betsy Farms


Recently our small furry family members had the opportunity to enjoy some fun treats I was asked to review.

Reflections of Laughter and Sadness

In a time when the world seems upside down and more evil than ever. Where the balance of society and culture has shifted remarkably in the wrong direction. Light and hope are absolute necessities. While all of the desperation and need should not be taken lightly, it should not be shoved under the carpet nor forgotten, those like me must sometimes seek solace, reprieve and relief from the heaviness of it all or we will suffocate. We do this by breathing in the little things of life. The ... [ Read More ]
