    13 Healthy Smoothies to Start the Year Off Right

    Every year I say the same 3 things, “I will eat better! I will get active! I will lose weight!” and every year I fail MIS-ER-A-BLY. Not this year. Nope this year IS going to be different and some healthy smoothies are going to help. So far we’ve got ourselves a family gym membership; unfortunately, due to a virus that we all seemed to succumb to one after another (as so often usually happens in families) 2016 has been a bust and that gym membership has not been used…YET! This means my vow for the moment is to keep my family and I virus free. How am I going to…

    Giving K’NEX Building Sets This Christmas #HolidayGiftGuide

    Building sets seem to a boy’s best friend these days. It seems that there are so many different brands out there, even my local Walmart as a whole aisle devoted to these things. I get it, I mean it’s just like when I was younger and all I wanted to do was make jewelry, it was just my creative side trying to break free. To be honest I’m happy that my son loves just about any toy that he can be creative with, it beats frying his brain over a video game. Over the summer I had the good fortune of sitting down with my sons and entering their realm…

    Colton’s Night Before Christmas from I See Me!

    Christmas Eve is fast approaching and I have our day all planned out; last minute shopping in the morning, baking and crafts in the afternoon, family movie time in the evening, followed by a reading of My Night Before Christmas, originally A Visit From St. Nicholas by Clement Clarke Moore. Except our rendition will now, forever be known as Colton’s Night Before Christmas and be beautifull illustrated by Virginia Allyn. Thanks to I See Me! I am going to be giving my youngest son a unique holiday gift. I was able to personalize this classic poem with my son’s name, the city we live in, my mom’s cat’s name, names…

    Rocking Around The Christmas Tree With KIDZ BOP Christmas Wish List #HolidayGiftGuide

    A few nights ago we FINALLY put up our Christmas tree. In this house, the moment the tree STARTS to go up is the moment that Christmas music gets blasted from the speakers. I swear it is the best kind of motivation; you know all the classics so it’s not hard to sing along and when you’re singing a Christmas carol you don’t care what you sound like. I swear my neighbors probably thought that there was a cat in heat in my suite as they heard me belting out the songs from KIDZ BOP Christmas Wish List. My son LOVES Christmas music but I swear if it’s sung by…

    Christmas With Oliver’s Labels

    I love to decorate for the holidays! Making our home Christmas-y, as funny as it may sound just makes me feel more “jolly”. It helps me get into the Christmas spirit every time I turn around and see something that signifies the most wonderful time of the year. Oliver’s Labels’ Room-eez™ Personalized Stockings and Santa’s Village Holiday Decals were perfect for what I had in mind.  This is the first time that I have ever used a decal on these walls, to be honest it’s only taken me this long because I was afraid the cheap paint in my apartment would come off the minute that I peeled the sticker…

    Christmas Classics from Mill Creek Entertainment #Giveaway #HolidayGiftGuide

    The holidays are a time for family.  To me “the holidays” are not just Christmas, Boxing Day or New Years…  in my eyes they begin on December 1st.  One of my favorite traditions involves watching a different movie or show each night leading up to the big day. Every year, once a week starting on the last day of November I skim through the guide on the TV looking for any and every holiday movie or show that I can find and set my PVR for taping. Thanks to Mill Creek Entertainment this year I won’t have to overload my PVR.  Not with movies like: TV Guide Spotlight: TV’s Merriest…
