A Healthy Food Option For Your Picky Eater

Every pregnancy is different. Every baby is different. Every child is different. 

These are things we hear as moms and expecting moms, and while true, it doesn’t necessarily sink in until it’s experienced. At least for me it didn’t until my second precious daughter came along.

My dear Lily has done her best to make a distinction from her big sister since day 1! 

Her sister was born before her due date, Lily was born a day late. Her sister was very active during the day but slept like a champ at night, whereas Lily was incredibly mellow during the day and sleep was definitely NOT in her vocabulary. Her sister has always been pretty good about eating and trying a mix of fruits and vegetables, and that Lily isn’t having it!! HA! 

She will eat fruit (not all of them) and not touch a single vegetable, and (like her father I’m told) boycott most everything that’s placed in front of her during mealtime. It’s frustrating to say the least, but this mama has options with the help of Happy Baby’s Clearly Crafted™ Pouches!

Feeling Confident in Your Clothes + LuLaRoe Giveaway!

*I received these articles of clothing in exchange for a review. As always, my opinion is 100% honest & my own.*

Who’s awesome? I’m awesome! 

When I heard our neighbor’s 5 year old son make that proclamation outside our window, I smiled a big smile.

Now that’s confidence. I thought.

As I settled back into doing whatever it was I was doing, I had to ask myself if I could make that same proclamation with such conviction.

In general I do think I’m pretty awesome, lol, but I definitely have moments when my insecurities get the best of me.

Cheers to 5 Years! It’s My Blogiversary!!

In many ways this is just another typical Monday, but in one way it’s of particular significance to me.

You see, 5 years ago today, on June 5, 2012, I published my first blog post, making this my blogiversary!!

5 Years!! I can hardly believe it!!

I knew this day was coming and originally had ideas of grandeur. Perhaps I’d throw a party, coordinate a mega-giveaway, or in the very least get one of those big ole gold balloons!☺️

Alas, the day snuck up on me and I am woefully unprepared. I’m honestly a bit disappointed in myself for my lack of planning, but today is special nonetheless. 

With that in mind, I thought I’d share some fun facts with you about how my little space on the internet came to be, some things that I’ve learned, and more!

Here we go!

A Memorable Evening with Disney on Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment

I received complimentary tickets from Feld Entertainment., Inc, in exchange for a review. As always, the opinions shared here are 100% honest and my own.

My family and I just enjoyed a wonderful night out. We went to Disney on Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment, and had the best time!! Due to his work schedule, my husband and I rarely have a family night out during the week, and we couldn’t wait to see how our daughter’s reacted to the show.

Truth be told, we were just as giddy and excited as they were, and it did not disappoint!

How I’ve Created a Better Home Work Environment

Our apartment is quite spacious, but it’s not huge as far as square footage is concerned. Knowing this, I didn’t foresee any problems with our standard WiFi connection.

Unfortunately, I was very wrong!!

Our complex is apparently in an area notorious for its poor reception, so imagine my disappointment when I couldn’t get adequate service throughout our entire place. This is not conducive for my work-from-home needs, and it’s the last thing I wanted to be worried about in the midst of juggling family life and my business.  

This is where TP-Link’s new Deco M5 Whole-Home Wi-Fi System comes in!
