New from Disney: 2015 Disney Movie Releases! #Disney #movies #FamilyMovieNight

Whenever I think of Disney movies,my first thought is always the Wonderful World of Disney. I watched the Wonderful World of Disney on TV as a child. We only had a black and white TV back then so I didn’t get the benefit of all the bright colors. This was in 1970s New Jersey,...

Disclosure: I was compensated for writing this post. The views expressed in this post are my own. When our college freshman was in elementary school, she decided she wanted to start her own cosmetics company. Alas, that venture never got off the ground. But it is not forgotten: In an early phase of trying to...

Gift Guide: Buy Gifts Cards and Save at Food Lion #FLVisa15

Disclosure: I was compensated for writing this post. The views expressed in this post are my own.  I sat bolt upright in bed on Saturday morning. I looked at the clock. I put my hands over my mouth to stifle a sound akin to a primal scream. I’m a long-time member of the “No One Utters a Loud...

You Can Find Me Writing Here…the Baltimore Examiner

Here’s the thing. I need to admit something. I need to come clean. Breathe. I am HORRIBLE at self-promotion. There I said it. I don’t promote my posts…sponsored and not…on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and even Google+. I just don’t. I am a bad blogger. I am a bad PR person. If I won’t promote...

Help Me Raise Money To Feed the Hungry #JohnsonvilleSponsors

A local church near me — Calvary United Methodist Church — hosts a free meal every Thursday evening. God’s Kitchen provides a free meal for anyone…the homeless, the hungry, those who have financial issues, those who are elderly or have health issues, or even those who simply do not want to cook. I was...

Support Teen Through @GiveForward #Love>Hate

Unless you are living under a rock, you know about the Ice Bucket Challenge. I couldn’t check my Facebook timeline without seeing 5 or 10 Ice Bucket Challenges. By some strange twist of luck, I did not get nominated. I’m online so much that I suspect that everything thought that I had been nominated already....

Getting a Good Night’s Sleep #FoodforSleep

I can be an ostrich. I can bury my head under the sand. Sing La La La when confronted with a situation that makes me uncomfortable. But I’m an adult. I can’t avoid unpleasant conversations with issues that affect my kids. I need to remove my head from the sand, come up for air,...

Give a Book, Get a Book with Disney #DisneySMMoms

I’ve been home from the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration for about three weeks. The bags are mostly unpacked. The laundry is mostly done. The kids’ missed schoolwork is completed. The house is still a mess…but really it was a mess before we left for California…so no surprises there. My plan has always been...
