Drop your pants for #Underwareness. Wait, what!?

Got kids? If so, how many times have you said, "Why didn't anyone TELL me about this part of it?" I'm talking about the afterpains. The hair loss. The sad puppy that becomes part of your belly (and never really goes away.) I'm talking about the bladder leakage. (Don't worry, no one is listening. It's just you and me here.) Yeah, we don't like to talk about it. But we need to. It happens to the best of us, the strongest of us, the busiest of us, ANY of us – and it's nothing to be ashamed ... [read more]

Turkey Hill Dairy Introduces All Natural Gelato #TurkeyHillGelato

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Turkey Hill Dairy. All opinions are my own. #TurkeyHillGelato Let me assure you, I'm very dedicated to my work. So when Turkey Hill Dairy asked me to purchase 3 of their new all natural gelato flavors and give them a try, I didn't stop there. No, sir, I bought all eight. Oh come on, wouldn't you?

Rest Easy and #DoMore Knowing Your Child is Safe (Video Monitor Giveaway)

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Levana. All opinions and text are my own. I'll admit it. It might not be too far off to call me an overworrier. (Is that a word?) When my kids were born, I was entirely prepared to hover over them forever, ensuring their safety at any given moment of the day. We cosleep, mainly because I get this weird anxiety that keeps me up some nights, and I like knowing they're safe nearby. I've gotten a grip over the years and settled down a ... [read more]

Cool Kitchen Challenge: Slow Cooker Baked Beans Recipe #ProjectEnvolve

I am a Project Envolve ambassador and receive product and/or compensation for these posts. All opinions and ideas are 100% my own. #ProjectEnvolve #GetEnvolve When my mom stopped by this afternoon, my daughter was in her high chair eating her current favorite food: baked beans. Despite their being one of our go-to summer side dishes and a sure bet every time with the kids, I don't make them often – mainly because baking a bean pot in the oven for hours does bad things to the temperature ...

3 Easy Curb Appeal Tips (for the low-maintenance gardener!) #LetsGarden

Why Monrovia plants? Because my Mom says so, and Mom is always right. OK, so that's not the only reason we're Monrovia gardening fans (although Mom's opinion is usually the one I trust.) I'm a lifetime garden lover and my husband is a master gardener through Penn State, but honestly, our green thumbs are really falling short this year. We have massive home repairs to do this season (with 2 little kids to boot) so not much is getting done around here. That doesn't mean we're willing to ... [read more]
