Oh What Fun We Have – Easy and Free to Low Cost Summer Break Ideas

Summer break has been here for about a month or so now, the kids and I are no where near ready to kill each other. I have been enjoying the Summer break quite a bit, sure the lack in routine can occasionally be a bit of a challenge for my son Aj, but overall things are going awesome! As a Mom who has been a penny pincher for as long as she can remember, I wanted to share some tips on how our family has a blast without spending any money, or maybe just a little tiny bit of money […]

Shh…I’m Letting You In On A Light Bladder Leakage Tip! #sp

Many thanks to Poise for sponsoring today’s story, and keeping me confident! I have talked about light bladder leakage (LBL) before, and I am going to talk about it again. As I become more educated on LBL I am realizing that this is a pretty common, but embarrassing issue for many females. It seems that our bladders cannot always hold up their strength after we give birth or lead a very active lifestyle. Sometimes all it takes is for my child to put me into a laughing fit for me to feel it, LBL and then I get so upset […]

Why Send Her Home Sick?

I am grocery shopping at Walmart with the four year old, cell is on silent while I am in the store because I am sure no one wants to hear the Red Solo Cup song over and over, yes I get texts a lot – some days. They also would hear the Facebook alert notification quite frequently which is one of two different songs because my cell phone is funked up. K-man and I did the grocery shopping and I picked him up a clearance flashlight Cars brand toy of some sort for like $4, then we checked out and […]

Unilever Spreads – Switch it Up in the Kitchen Giveaway #G2KHoliday

I was challenged to switch it up this holiday season with Unilever Spreads instead of using my normal butter or margarine options when baking some yummy treats. My son wanted to make some molasses cookies for his Christmas Party and the kids wanted chocolate chip cookies for snack at home, so we headed out to get I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter! from our local Walmart. The daughter had a great time using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! for her chocolate chip cookie baking the other night before Christmas arrived. It was easier to use than our sticks of […]

Living in my Shoes with Three Kiddos

I much prefer living my life with an open mind, sense of humor and ability to laugh at the most frustrating situations. For instance, when my kids received a product in the mail and the youngest decided it would be really cool to hide the toy? And later on that evening the oldest finally found said toy that we had looked for ALL damn day … in the freezer? Did I get upset? Did I cry? Did I yell? Nope …. my oldest and I laughed so hard we couldn’t stop. Earlier on that same day when I had to […]
