Celebrate Lance Snack’s 100th Birthday #spon

Birthday's are important here, especially milestone birthday's. I love making the parties I throw unique even though I'm often choosing classic themes you can find in any store. I like to make things that coordinate into the theme and make the party I'm throwing different from everyone else's. It doesn't have to cost a lot but in the end those DIY projects aren't only my favorite parts of the … [Read more...]

Go RVing this summer when you travel! #GORVING

We love to travel. We travel all over but when the warm air hits New England we stick to local travel. Local as in anywhere we can drive. It's so pretty here and I love being able to see all of it and as much of it as I can each year.  Hubby's cousin just invested in a Type A RV and it is sweet. You step inside and it is modern with a great kitchen, flat screen TV (with XBOX set up), multiple … [Read more...]

10 Items That Should Be On Every Registry {NUK Giveaway – 20 Winners!}

When we start trying to figure out everything that baby needs the list gets pretty long. The amount of products and the amount of selections are crazy now. When I first had Johnny my selection wasn't big. With Sawyer I feel like the choices are endless. If you can think it, it's out there. 1. Car Seat. This is probably the most important to get first. You need it to get home from the hospital. … [Read more...]

#Cottonelle is giving away FOUR (4) $10,000 bathroom makeovers!

I joke on facebook a lot about how we are germ weirdo's out in public. When we go out to a restaurant we have an entire routine and with Sawyer we practically sanitize the surrounding area. Don't get me wrong we have gone out without it all but if we can we want to make sure his place is clean. Could you imagine if you walked into a restaurant and they smeared the meal from the person … [Read more...]

The Most Amazing ER in the World

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Elmhurst Memorial Hospital for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Many of you don't know it but other than being a mom my favorite job was when I worked in the ER for five years. ER's are something special when you realize all that goes into them to make them work. It's so easy for things to get backed up and for the patients to become … [Read more...]

Will you join me tomorrow for the #FoodD Party?

There's so much talk these days about food and what's naturally in them, what's put in them, and what isn't. Clean eating, organic, naturally raised, sustainable, etc. all these words mean so many different things and well it's confusing, isn't it?

NUK Orthodontic Bottles Giveaway! {20 Winners!!!}

I remember the first time I walked into Babies R Us thirteen years ago. It was one of the most overwhelming trips to a store I've ever made. While many of the items caught my eye and others seemed really interesting I really could tell what I need from what I wanted and what was a good deal and when I was being robbed blind. In the end when it came time to do my registry I left Daddy at home … [Read more...]
