Summer Grillin’! #ReadySetRibs #WeaveMade #Ad

Disclosure: This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Weave Made Media, and Farmland/Smithfield, but all my opinions are my own. #WeaveMade #ReadySetRibs http://my-disclosur.es/RgFrEH I’m not a good cook in the kitchen.

I love the cakes adorned with roses, icing ribbons, and other decorative features. When a birthday party guest, squealed...

Fun + Work = Disney Social Media Moms Celebration #DisneySMMoms

Growing up in England v. Growing up in America #EnglishMemories

The Groundhog and I Are Not on Speaking Terms

                      I was reading a book in my living room. Enjoying the quiet before all the kids were home from school. Something blurry passed in my peripheral vision. I looked up to get a better view. I jumped back when I saw that a...

Snow Day Fun #PolarVortex

Two weeks before Christmas, the kids had 2 snow days. Last week we also had 2 snow days plus MLK Day. Snow days have always been a family affair around here. My husband is a former-English-teacher-now-school-administrator. He’s always had the same snow days as the kids. Occasionally, his county will declare a snow day...
