Fisher Price Little Mommy Play All Day Baby

Kambry loves dolls! She is always talking to her dolls, taking care of them, dressing them, playing and always playing ‘house’ with them. She has her favorite dolls, but there is a new one that has stolen her heart: Little Mommy Play All Day Baby from Fisher Price. Little Mommy Play All Day Baby Girls […]

Our Wisk Stain Spectrum Technology at home Lab Test

Sounds kind of funny, doesn’t it? An at home lab test….Are we crazy? Well… that’s not the content today. 😆 but with my family in play, I have to take everything that we do in to consideration as to what the after effects are going to be. After effects? We never think about what our […]

Take the Aladdin “Do The Reuse Challenge”!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Aladdin. All opinions are 100% mine. While you are at home, or on the go, what type of food containers do you use? I will admit that I used to use plastic cups, paper plates, throw away water bottles and even paper napkins, but […]

Pakistan Emergency: Message from UNCHR Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie

Do you keep up with what’s going on in the world? I have to admit that I am kind of behind on the times when it comes to the news and what’s going on in our world. 😳 Shame on me, I know it! Well, I did hear about the recent flood in Pakistan, and […]

Crest Pro-Health Complete Rinse (Take 1!)

I am 34 years old and have never, I repeat never, had a cavity. Hard to believe, isn’t it? When I was 19, I had braces put on, and then 7 teeth extracted and here I am at 34 and cavity free. I am quite proud of myself! I have very sensitive teeth and extremely […]

Healthy Choice + Lifestyle Change = Happiness & Weight Loss!

I have been exercising on my Elliptical every day, drinking plenty of water, eating healthier options like carrots as a snack and I have been replacing one meal a day (I chose to replace my lunch time meal) with a Healthy Choice meal. With all my motivation and hard work….. Drum roll please…. I am […]

Bright Beginnings Formula at!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of PBM Products. All opinions are 100% mine. When I was pregnant with both of my kids, my first thought on if I was going to breastfeed or formula feed was that I would try to breastfeed. With Tucker, I was able to go for […]

Snoozin’ at the Bears Game

How’s that for a title? I thought it was fitting! A couple of weeks ago, hubby and I went to Chicago to a Bears game. We had so  much fun! I love tailgating! When else is it ok to eat a cheeseburger grilled out on a tiny keg grill and drink beer at 9 in […]

Crockpot Stuffed Green Peppers with Asiago Fresco Cheese

At the end of the summer, I had the chance to try out a wide variety of cheese from Sam’s Club. I will admit that I am pretty plain in the sense when it comes to cheese. I like Cheddar, American and Mozzarella on my Italian food, and that’s about it. When this opportunity came […]

Grilled Pizza with Boboli Pizza

I love pizza. I could eat it all day, every day if my family and waistline would allow me to. I was asked if I had tried Boboli Pizza – on the grill. I had never even had Boboli pizza, to be honest, but I thought ‘Hey, pizza and grilling out – why not?’ Ohhhh […]

My spider friend is coming over for dinner

Kambry was about to go out on the deck and play and she looked over, screamed and ran inside. ‘Mama – smoosh it! Smoosh it!!’, she said. I had to take a picture before grabbing one of hub’s shoes. Is it me, or does it look like this guy is upside down and his face […]

Beetle. What? IN my food?

Nice title, huh? Yeah – thankfully it wasn’t MY food that this colorful creature was in. It it was, I would have been at Copeland’s doorstep the next morning, all day, every day until someone was to clarify any sort of reasoning for this. What am I talking about? This is a picture of a […]

Bobbie Brooks Jeans from Dollar General – Affordable Style!

I am on a mega weight loss and ‘get fit’ mission. I think we all have those times in our lives. With this said, what do you do about your clothes that are too big? Personally, I don’t like to go out and buy new clothes that will fit me as I continue my weight […]

Out of the Blue Delivered Card Cubby *Giveaway* (Closed)

While I was at BlogHer in NYC, I was able to mingle with companies that I work with on a daily basis and exchange business cards with companies and other bloggers. I had a business card holder, but it doesn’t hold any more than about 15 cards, if that. I won a really cute Card […]

September is Baby Month at Sam’s Club! Our Click ‘n’ Pull Experience!

When we go shopping, most of the time, I like to keep a list going so that we can get our things at one time, in one location. We live in a small town, so things here are a bit more on the pricey side, so I usually drive anywhere from 30 to 85 miles […]

Current Stats: Healthy Choice

I have been replacing one meal a day for a few weeks now and I have to say that I not only feel great about my entire lifestyle change, but I look better, my clothes are fitting loosely and I am more motivated to keep on my path for weight loss and getting and staying […]

Tom and Jerry Meet Sherlock Holmes on DVD

On August 24, 2010, Tom and Jerry Meet Sherlock Holmes was released on DVD. My kids are such Tom & Jerry fans, its unreal! They have watched this DVD over and over again, and could probably recite it from heart. If there was ever a Tom & Jerry DVD that my kids loved, it’s this […]
