Happy 8th birthday ‘baby boy’!

Today, my baby boy turns 8 years old. Where in the world did the time go? Seems like yesterday that he was so tiny and sweet, but here we are today where he is so grown up and still so sweet. I love you Tucker! Tweet

New birth certificate has been ordered! #Adoption

I am so stinking excited to say that my certified copies of my adoption has arrived. Next up: mailing overseas so I can request a NEW birth certificate to exclude ‘egg donors’ name and INCLUDE my real mom, the woman that has been my daddy’s wife, my step-mom for 20 years and my kids’ Nana . […]

Face to face, yet hundreds of miles away #HPFamilyTime

I cannot begin to express how much we are loving our HP ENVY 23 TouchSmart AiO. At first, I was afraid to let my 5 & 8 year old’s near it for fear they would break it… that changed pretty quickly. They love the touch screen feature. It’s almost like they can navigate around faster […]

Wordless Wednesday: 10 year anniversary vow renewal!


Rayovac 7 Hour Power is a lifesaver!

I’ve been stranded a time of two (ok, so it’s more than I can count) without power. My devices are a priority when I travel, and when there’s not an outlet around, I tend to spaz out a bit. Ok, so I go in full blown freak out mode. While it’s nice to have a […]

I’m personally going to give one lucky winner the gift of dinner and a movie with: $25.00 Fandango […]

Networking & more with the HP ENVY 23-d150xt TouchSmart All-in-One Desktop PC #HPFamilyTime

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about setting up my new HP ENVY 23-d150xt TouchSmart All-in-One Desktop PC. It was super easy to get set up, so now I’ve been setting it up to video chat with loved ones, movie streaming, games for the kids and more. What? A computer can be used for […]

Wordless Wednesday: If it fits, it ships.


Cool off this summer with #Popsicle (#Ambassador)

There’s no doubt that this summer is leading to be a hot one. How are you staying cool? We have been playing outside in the sprinkler, splashing in the pool and cooling off with some cold Popsicle ice cream treats. We went to the store to see what they had. My son was giddy with […]

Free App! Picture Collage Maker

I am always looking for apps that I can play around and upload photos with. I just found Picture Collage Maker and wanted to share it with you all. It’s free for a limited time in iTunes. If you have this, I’d love to hear your thoughts. I just downloaded and am about to play. […]

Wordless Wednesday: 10 year addition!

I might be kind of partial, but I’m in love with my 10 year anniversary band addition. Tweet

Fun with Polly Pocket Playsets!

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Polly Pocket. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. My 5 year old is a nut for Polly Pocket! I wanted to share some amazing deals for their new Playsets from Amazon. We received […]

Setting up my HP ENVY 23-d150xt TouchSmart All-in-One Desktop PC

For the last month, I and my parents have been enjoying keeping in contact with each other through the miles. We live in SW Iowa and they live in west Texas, so any chance we can see or chat with each other, the better. I have a few posts to show you how we keep […]
