Disney’s The Lion King *Now* on Digital HD and on Blu-ray Aug. 29th

One of my first memories of going to the movie theater was going to see the Lion King with my family. I absolutely loved all the music, the characters and the how funny it was. Now that I have gotten older I still love it, and I appreciate the message it teaches. It is one of my kid's favorite movies, and we watch it often for family movie night. It is so fun watching them laugh at the parts I … [Read more...]

Stay Connected Wherever You Go With Republic Wireless

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Republic Wireless. This summer my kids and I took an 8-hour road trip to spend a couple of weeks at grandma's house. My husband is super busy every summer with work and it is always a little nerve-racking to take the long drive solo with my kids. A big chunk of the drive is in the middle of nowhere Wyoming. Gas stations are far apart and in the past, it has … [Read more...]

Pampers Rewards are Back and Better Than Ever!

This post is sponsored by Pampers. All thoughts and opinions about Pampers Rewards are my own. As parents, we have a lot of choices to make when we have a child. There are so many things they need and sometimes too many options to pick from. As a mom, I count on the opinions of other moms to help me weed my way through them all. One of my biggest recommendations to other parents is my love for … [Read more...]

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. This week has been super hot, but we needed to get out of the house. The mall is always nice and … [Read more...]

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...]

Red White & Blue Glitter Slime

I think July is my favorite month. It's the one month my kids are all home from school for the entire month and our family probably spends the most time together just relaxing and enjoying each other's company. 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...]

The New Grossery Gang Putrid Power Movie With Grossery Gang Toys

I really love being a mom, but parenting can also have some pretty gross moments. Immediately you are elbow deep in dirty diapers, spit up, slobber, and more grossness. One of my grossest and most embarrassing parenting moments happened at the circus. My kids were 6 and 2 years old. My little 2-year-old daughter had big opinions and a temper. She was furious we couldn't go down and actually meet … [Read more...]

One of my kid's favorite things to do outside this summer has been to ride on their PlasmaCars. PlasmaCars are fun and easy to use … [Read more...]
