To make my girls happy is easy, just add Disney.February is halfway done and I can feel March coming a little too quickly. My daughter is turning 9. 9!! I’ve been really busy trying to plan a great surprise destination spring break for the girls but I don’t want to sweep the birthday under the rug, even though it is just 2 short weeks before spring break. I want it to be special but not outrageous... »

GoldieBlox, More than just a princess

Isn’t Your Daughter More than Just a Princess?

When I was a little girl, I was raised that little girls did “girl things” like play with baby dolls and Barbie dolls. Boys played with legos and lincoln logs. Girls were pretty and boys were dirty. Boys got to have all the fun while all I got to do was chores and play with toys that taught me how to be a “young lady“. Enter easy bake ovens, play houses, baby dolls who crie... »

Brian James ~ Where Sexy Meets Comfort

While in Chicago this past summer I discovered a new footwear company, Brian James Footwear. Never heard of them? Me neither. Where do I live? Under a rock? Maybe. The pair I have are a pair of gladiator sandals called the Angelle and they are gorgeous. They are soft, silky black suede with a padded foot bed, ankle support and a flexible sole. They were made for me. Anyone who knows me knows that ... »

A Journey of a Thousand Miles #Sponsored

The ones that start off with you trying to beat the clock on some deadlines and ends with you almost falling out of your attic. I’m telling you, some higher power yanked my by the back of my t-shirt and saved my life. Staying on course was ... »

Nutrisystem is Changing My Perspective of Me #Sponsored

I just finished week 3 of being on the Nutrisystem program; I’m down 9.2 pounds and 18 inches, in 21 days! I am in the 230′s not the 240′s and that makes me very happy. In fact, I’m ecstatic. If Nutrisystem were a person, I’d kiss it on the lips! This change has been about much more than just weight and inches, though there is a satisfaction in seeing changing numbers and feeling... »

Please tell me that I am not the only one who is running her mommy butt off this summer? I thought summer was supposed to be relaxing. My summer is less like a day at the beach and more like a runaway train.Granted the chasing bubbles and chalk art is glorious but damn it, I don’t ... »
