We’re a family that has always been invested in technology. My husband works in the IT field, my daughter is studying Video Game Design as…
Ever since my husband and I tied the knot over 21 years ago our vacations of choice have been Disney ones. As of late particularly…
Being a mom is hard. It’s exhausting. Much of the time it’s a thankless job. We often feel like failures. We put waaay too much pressure on ourselves. What every mom needs on occassion is a Mom’s Night Out. A time where she and her friends can decompress, let their hair down and not have two or four or six (or more!) sticky hands needing something that only Mom can give.
I was planning on hosting a Mom’s Night Out party through Mom Select earlier in May. Yeah, that never happened. It was supposed to happen. But you know what it’s like when you have kids. And your friends have kids. The best intentions get usurped …by kids.
I’m still coming to terms with the fact that October is almost over – seriously how did November creep up on us so fast?! I am glad for the cooler weather though, the HOT Texas summer was a bit more intensive than I had anticipated 🙂 And with the cooler weather that means that holiday baking is already commencing in my kitchen, and I had the opportunity to make a few things (and share them!) with Werther’s Original Baking Caramels.

Since we homeschool, we’re responsible for all our curriculum and the things needed to educate our daughter (on top of paying our school taxes to the district!). This means that over the years we’ve purchased items and services that haven’t worked for us, and some that we’d recommend from the roof top for other families to use as well.
One of the biggest things we use in our school room is technology. Amber does much of her school work through DVDs, online programs, and of course I keep track of everything using software, and print out reports constantly to have on file.
So for a while now, I have been interested in using an energy drink. I drink coffee regularly but sometimes in the middle of the day I’d rather have a cold ‘pick me up’, so when I recently got an email to review Phix Energy, I decided to try it.
I received my samples of Phix in the mail and was excited to try it. It’s very easy to use; you just pour the powdered mix that’s already premeasured for a 12 oz to 16 oz serving of water.
The Nutella Spread Breakfast Bar is open! You can switch up your breakfast fare such as English muffins, waffles, fruit and coffee, all enjoyed with tasty and unique Nutella hazelnut spread.
Nutella is made with simple quality ingredients, including roasted hazelnuts, skim milk and a hint of cocoa.
I remember when Amber was first born, I was overwhelmed by the amount of laundry that one little person could make. The idea of separating it all and washing it in a separate detergent seemed like far too much work, yet I didn’t want her tender skin to be affected by any harsh chemicals. In instances like that all Free Clear Laundry Detergent is a life saver.
all® Free Clear is the number one free clear detergent and is pediatrician and dermatologist recommended for sensitive skin. It is free of perfumes and clear of dyes, and gently lifts away tough baby stains. Importantly for new moms on a budget, all® Free Clear costs fifty percent less than Dreft®!
With all® Free Clear, mom never needs to separate baby’s laundry from the rest of the family’s and can still feel good about doing the best for her newborn. With all® Free Clear, mom gets the whole family’s wash clean, while still caring for newborn’s sensitive skin.
