Start Your Holiday Shopping Early @Kmart with #KmartLayaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I am a Kmart blogger, though all opinions are my own. Layaway was one of new terms I learned when I moved to the United States. The shopping experience in England was so VERY different to what I saw in the U.S. There were no malls and no...

Anyone See the Sun? Bueller? Bueller?

A couple of weeks I watched the rain. It rained and it rainied. From drizzle to high winds to heavy rain, it did not stop raining all week. The low point of that very wet week came on Friday. I stepped in a puddle. And it was a big puddle as well. Of course,...

Is There a Time When Ice Cream Doesn’t Hit the Spot? #seizingfamilytime

We’re a family of 5. Always flying in different directions. To work, Cub Scouts, soccer, school events, swimming, volleyball, and more. I can just about remember the days when having a doctor’s appointment and a playdate in the same week would make me STRESSED. Now a week with two activities would be unheard of....

Friends Through and Through

October 17, 2013

I met up with two mom friends for coffee a few weeks ago. We had planned to see each other in May, but end-of-the-school mayhem and madness put a dampener on our plans. We could not find a time when we were all free. Then summer rolled in with swim team, home building projects,...

Do You Have What It Takes To Be a #PersonalShopper?

Sponsored: This is a sponsored post. I am a Sears/Shop Your Way blogger, though all opinions are my own. I’m a pack rat. A hoarder. I’m content to let stuff pile up. Tables, chairs, and my basement storage room are stacked with papers, boxes, and bags of stuff. Boxes and boxes of stuff line...

My husband looked puzzled as he peered at me from the dining room doorway. He had heard my laughing from two rooms over the noise of the TV and came to investigate. Why was I laughing? What was so funny…he wanted to know. I showed him the site I was looking at. That site...

Talking To Your Kids About How They Act Online #digifam

I do 100% of my work online. I’m either on a desktop, a laptop, or out-and-about on my smartphone. I’m writing blog posts or posting to Facebook/Twitter/Instagram or hosting a Twitter party. When I’m not online, I’m in the car driving kids from sports practice to Cub Scouts to swimming before heading back home....
