Searching for the Perfect #Prom Dress? Check Out @JenJenHouse

Middle Schoolers Explore Engineering at #FutureCity #GirlDay2014

Science classes at my school were dry…and if I am honest…quite dull. The formats for all my classes in middle school and high school were set in stone. Years and years of girls at my school had done the same thing every day in every class…girls entered the class, greeted the teacher, opened their...

I’m Excited To Take the Family To See #CatchingFire

Every now and then a book comes along that grabs everyone’s attention. Kids, teens, adults. The Hunger Games was that book. The book everyone was talking about. My teen was an early adopter. She jumped on the Hunger Games bandwagon before there was one. She insisted she needed to get the book after seeing...

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....

Sponsored: Planning Activities for Summer @Kelloggs Frosted Mini Wheats
