Family Time with My Gnome on the Roam + #Giveaway

Thank you to My Gnome on the Roam for providing me with this product for review. All opinions are 100% my own. 

One could say that my family has a long history with gnomes so when this product became available I was so excited to try it! In the early 1980s, my grandmother created what we called a “fairyland” that started with a house for a wild rabbit and progressed into a backyard full of whimsical gnomes and various other items. I grew up next door so to say that my childhood was imaginative is an understatement. I am so excited that my children can have similar experiences with My Gnome on the Roam! 

More than a Mom


I have struggled with being a mom at times because I have tried to put all my heart into being a mom.  My friendships have faded and over time it stopped mattering to me.  As my son is older now and is starting to need me less, I have found that I feel unfulfilled.  I needed to find out who I am beside a mom.  How did I lose myself?

Getting Ready for a New School Year with Shoplet #review

I received product from Shoplet in exchange for my review.  All opinions are 100% my own.

Shoplet is back with some more wonderful products that I can't wait to use.  I have worked with my friends from Shoplet many times and am always excited because it's always great products that I can use in my classroom.  The items I received from Shoplet to share with you all are a teacher's best friend.

Where is it?


This picture has been circulating for a while now, and I am interested to see if you can find this mysterious phone, which is blended in with the rug. Call it a challenge, if you will. This should be fun!

Can you spot it? Comment 'I found it' when you do!

Paparazzi Jewelry- Be Camera Ready for $5! #Review #Giveaway


Thank you to Regina Bell of Paparazzi for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions shared are my own.

When I was working retail, we were expected to dress up, wear makeup, and accessorize for each shift; becoming a stay at home mom made me a lot more casual. Over the past year, I've been getting involved in local politics, there are a lot of events that require me to look more put-together. I don't have a lot of money to update my wardrobe, luckily I've discovered Paparazzi Jewelry.

How to Pack for Your FamilyVacation #TipTuesday


After taking dozens of trips with my family, you'd think that I would be an expert when it comes to packing. I wish that was the case. Truth be told, I detest packing for trips, and find it all kinds of stressful. Waiting until the last minute tp pack just doesn't fly with me. I take the entire week before we leave for a trip, and do different things on different days. Breaking up the packing helps me to stay organized and sane.
