A Childlike Summer #HungerFreeSummer

I worked with The Motherhood on this post, sponsored by ConAgra Foods. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Since my last post about #HungerFreeSummer, I’ve talked more with my boys about what we can do to help kids who worry about having enough food to eat each day.

Cool Morning Treat #IcedDelight

I’m not a morning person. Not even a little bit. But in the summer, mornings are the easiest time for me to get work done because my kids sleep in. Once they’re up, they’re asking to go to the pool or the beach or to have friends over. So I need to take advantage of […]

Go Outside and Play! #CutterRepellents

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cutter® Insect Repellents. Go outside. It’s my summer mantra. Go run, bike, jump, swim, play, even just lay down and watch the clouds or read a book. Whatever it is you do, go outside.

Hunger Free Summer with ConAgra Foods


I worked with The Motherhood on this post, sponsored by ConAgra Foods. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Beauty Tips to Solve ALLERGY FACE®


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of ZYRTEC®. That is not chalk. That is the pollen that was on just a small part of my front porch this Spring. I had to run inside before the urge to claw my eyes out overwhelmed me, leaving one of my boys in charge […]

Keep Your Mom-Sanity This Summer


I know I just said that I’m excited for the summer. And I truly am. But at the same time, I know that too much togetherness for my boys, scorching hot days that make the outdoors unbearable, and the inevitable “I’m bored” complaints can cause me to lose my mind. If you are looking for […]

Look Good Feel Better #ReimagineBeauty


I participated in this program on behalf of Look Good Feel Better and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. Last year, my sister-in-law went through a battle with cancer. She had stage 3 rectal cancer. While her biggest fear was not being able to be there for her kids, she has such a strong […]
