Lee Stafford ChoPstick Curling Wand Review and GIVEAWAY!!!

*The product in this post was provided for review. Thoughts and opinions are all my own. 

I hate to admit that most days my hair is in a messy bun or ponytail. But it’s the “MomLife” and I am okay with it. However, there are days when I am determined to make the time to fix my hair and feel a little better about myself!  It’s amazing how taking 20+ minutes to do your hair and make up can perk up your mood and energy for the day!

I have always loved trying new styles on my hair. They don’t always work out the way I envisioned, but it’s always fun trying new things and seeing if they work.  Read more

Mom’s need to take a Weekend off…with the Mazda CX-9

Mom’s need to take a Weekend off…with the Mazda CX-9

Motherhood is a 24 hour job! There is no time off. No break. No overtime. Just Mom-all-the-time. I don’t have to remind you just how many hats we moms wear in a week…Chef, Maid, Chauffeur, Cheerleader, Nurse… and so on and so forth… It’s a lot, but we love it!

However… Mom’s need to take a WEEKEND off!!!

Pretty much any reason for the weekend off will be suitable. 
(Except a hospital stay. That does NOT count as a weekend off!)

Learn to Save More with Groupon Coupons

**This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

With a large family to provide for my husband and I are trying to be careful with our spending. Buying new clothes and going out to eat and even little family activities can add up quickly. Even my Starbucks coffee obsession can be a costly monthly expense if I am not careful! 

Saving-1


Full disclosure: I struggle with cutting coupons out. I do. I know I should do it. But it takes a bit more time than I really want to spend on it. And frankly, sometimes saving $2 is not worth spending 2 hours looking for a good deal. Maybe I just need to learn from an expert… But for now, I need simple. Someone else who has done the work for me. A deal on my phone. Access to savings at my every day shopping is my kind of savings rodeo. Read more

Get on the Learning Train with VTech Sit-to-Stand Ultimate Alphabet Train (plus Giveaway)

Playtime learning with VTech

One of the best parts of being a mom is watching your children discover the world. Seeing the eyes of my babies light up as they discover new and exciting things that honestly, I myself take for granted. Things like, colors, and songs, and lights, and rolling wheels. All SUPER fascinating to a little one. 

Playtime learning with VTech -1


I think playtime learning is the best kind of learning for children. Providing little ones with the toys that encourage imagination and discovery is so important. My two little twin girls (who are turning 18 months!!!) are just blossoming with all kinds of new and exciting discoveries. Their vocabulary is just exploding with new words. “I Stuck” “Socks” “Bobble” (Bottle) “Drink” and More! Read more

Ninja Blender Review and Cantaloupe Berry Smoothie Recipe

I was BEYOND Excited to open my new Ninja Ultima Blender!!! I have had an older model for a few years and was super impressed with it. I knew that the newest Ninja would be awesome. I just didn’t know it would TOTALLY BLOW ME AWAY!!

Okay. I know it sounds like I am a tad over excited about a blender. But, I use my blender a lot! Homemade salsa, fruit smoothies for the kids, hummus, milk shakes, the list goes on. The Ninja Ultima is very powerful and comes with the large pitcher with three blades for big jobs or if you are looking for a single serve size, it also came with 3 individual serving cups with lids!

Uniquely Susan – Review & Giveaway!!!!!!

(Giveaway now closed)

I LOVE jewelry! I love how the perfect necklace or earrings can complete an outfit. The last few years I haven’t worn as much jewelry because of babies in my arms that could potentially pull and break them. Now that the babies are toddlers and up (“sniff-sniff”) I am working on incorporating more pieces into my collection.

Let me tell you about the jewelry I am in LOVE with right now! Uniquely Susan is AMAZING! Susan believes that everyone is Unique and deserves a Unique piece of jewelry! She has a great eye for putting together fabulous pieces. Each piece Susan designs comes from inspiration from the life around her. The quality of her jewelry is stellar. I am sure that my new collection of Uniquely Susan jewelry will be a part of my wardrobe for a very long time.


I am privileged to not only review a few of her pieces, but also know her. (She is a pretty awesome lady!) If you see something that you love in her shop, don’t hesitate to grab it! Uniquely Susan never makes the same two pieces. (She can make similar items upon request)

No two pieces alike, because no two people are alike.” Is Uniquely Susan’s motto.
