Experienced Parent. What I Wish I Knew The First Time.

I participated in this sponsored campaign for Mirum Shopper. All opinions stated are my own. When I found out I was pregnant with Sawyer, I was excited to finally have an experience that I wasn't so scared of. I had already ridden this rodeo and, to the best of my ability, done well; not just once but twice already. I was the experienced parent this time around. I knew at this point that I could … [Read more...]

School Shopping Made Easy with Sears

I participated in this sponsored campaign for SEARS. All opinions stated are my own. I can't believe it's already time for the kids to head off to school. Every year I swear the summer gets shorter and shorter. We just started our back-to-school shopping, and for once it's been super easy.

Quick and Easy Cheesy Potato Skin Bites Recipe

This post was sponsored by Heluva Good! Cheese as part of an Influence Central campaign and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. In the summer I like to entertain. Nothing fancy or anything, just a relaxing hang-out among friends and family usually. The entertainment is easy, especially when kids are involved. Food, however, can sometimes seem so overwhelming. I love when I can put a … [Read more...]

The kids asked to make some glitter slime, and we thought we'd get a little patriotic while we were at it. We love to make slime and make it often, so we had everything we needed … [Read more...]

Did you get the opportunity to see the new Beauty & the Beast movie that just came out in theaters? I did, and I'm so glad!

So when I heard that it was coming out again and that Disney also chose Emma Watson to be … [Read more...]

Philly Style Steak & Peppers Rice Dinner

“Sponsored post by Mirum Shopper. All opinions are my own.” Dinners this time of year are less than thrilling. Even some of our favorite meals aren't so favorite right now from being made so often. I'm stuck in a rut of finding new recipes, and I don't have the time even to make dinner if I wanted to anyways. Well, that's what I tell myself anyways. Knorr Selects recently asked me to step up my … [Read more...]
