We all remember the silly King Julien from Madagascar, well this show is all about him and the other lemurs on the island. It’s called All Hail King Julien and it is now […]


Let’s Buy White… Said No Mother Ever

My mother the artist, she brings out the colorful, artsy side of my children. When they visit with her I make sure to pack extra clothes. One time my mother encouraged them to color of the walls in a place that she was staying to make the walls more fun. Needless to say it took […]


Blog Forward Recharge

This is a letter to myself for the Blog Forward challenge from Zone Perfect. Although they have sent me product, all views are my own. As always.  Boy this year went by fast, it’s hard to believe that Fall is now here! But it’s time to look back at my Blog Forward goals that I made […]

Puppy Kisses

For the Love of Dog

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of K9 Advantix® II. The opinions and text are all mine. I was walking through the mall one day when I stopped in to look at the pets in the pet store. There he was, with his floppy ears and his tongue poking out of […]

Cooper Tire Super Mom Test Track

My Time on the Test Track

A few weeks ago Cooper Tires brought me and few other bloggers out to San Antonio Texas to test our skills and knowledge of tires on the road. I can’t tell you how excited I was to go out there and drive the way I’ve always wanted to without being arrested. It was a pure […]

What she sees

Tales of the Toilet Monster

When my daughter tells me she needs to go to the bathroom in a public area, I cringe. My oldest daughter has a ridiculous phobia of automatic toilets. So when I walk into any public bathroom and see that sensor, I have to prepare her for a life lesson that just doesn’t seem to sink […]


Adult Birthdays Suck

As a child, birthday’s are magical. People bring you gifts and food. Our parents plan everything down to that scary clown that now haunts your dreams. But you can overlook that when there is a sugar coma that follows. Boy, does that change as you get older. The teen years are spent trying to get hammered […]


Day 19 – 40 Bags in 40 Days

Another day down and I tackled the Tupperware cabinet. The one that always gets out of hand. I recycled a bag of containers that didn’t have lids and placed a shelf in the cabinet to make more room for storage. Follow my 40 Bags in 40 Days journey! Need organizing tips? Here are 50 for […]


Day 18 – 40 Bags in 40 Days

We are now on day 18 of 40 Bags in 40 Days and I’ve slowed down quite a bit because life has gotten crazy busy. I’m still taking on the challenge and I’ve rearranged my schedule because some days that I had allotted more time didn’t take as long as I thought they would. So […]


Day 9 and 10 – 40 Bags in 40 Days

Generally We would rest on Sunday but when it’s the only time my husband and I aren’t exhausted from the day or week we have been se cluttering all weekend and resting on Fridays. This weekend we tackled our master bedroom closet. It was a huge undertaking because it really branched out into the master […]


Day 8 – 40 Bags in 40 Days

Tackled my daughters bathroom today. We had A LOT of hotel toiletries. Two grocery bags full. Lots of stuff that belonged in my bathroom too. My bathroom project just got a little harder. Follow my 40 Bags in 40 Days journey! Need organizing tips? Here are 50 for every room in your house! 


Day 7 – 40 Bags in 40 Days

I took on a catch all cabinet today. Filled with lots of platters and glass vases. A giant pile to go to the recycling for sure. Not looking forward to tackling my bedroom or our garage. That’s going to be a few days for sure.


Day 6 – 40 Bags in 40 Days

Tackled my laundry room today! It had some things just sitting collecting dust, and dryer lint. Lots of it. I’m starting to think my laundry room needs a coat of paint and a mini makeover. It’s too white in there. Boy was there a thick layer of dryer dust and random things in there. Follow […]


Day 5 – 40 Bags in 40 Days

This picture doesn’t really do this small area justice. This is simply where my hot water heater lives. It’s a closet with a light and that’s about it. We recently took some left over wood and made shelves in the space so that I could store our bulk items from Costco. One shelve didn’t do […]


Day 1 – 40 Bags in 40 Days

Today I started the 40 Bags in 40 Days challenge. It was circulating around Facebook and I was actually thinking about something I could give up for the 40 Days of Lent. I’m not religious but I wanted to challenge myself to set a goal and stick with it. I was planning on giving up […]


The Anti-Social Campus #VZWBuzz

Being a non-traditional older student you […]

St. Augustine Lighthouse

Enjoying St. Augustine

Last week, I visited St. Augustine for a media trip and it was amazing. I was able to ditch the 30 degree weather in Georgia for short sleeves and the sand of Florida. It was far too cold in Georgia for fall, including a sudden frost killing off the rest of our Spring garden. I […]

Capturing a Great Family Photo with Loveworks Photography

Capturing my family in a natural photo is hard. When I ask my oldest daughter to smile I normally get a scowl. I’l also a fan of more candid shots instead of “studio” pictures. So when Stephen of Loveworks Photography asked me to test out his 90 Minutes of Awesome session I jumped all over […]

Scared for My Friend #Oklahoma Tornado

I was oblivious to the tornados sweeping across the country the past few days. I saw an update from my best friend who was scheduled to have surgery on her back yesterday. She was put under to start her surgery, but they woke her up almost immediately. When she awoke the lights were flickering. The […]

Why I Voted for Obama, Again. Last Chance to Vote Early #blogforobama

This week I headed out early and decided to vote. My thought was that I would beat the lines and be able to ease the stress with a baby in tow. Unfortunately I ended up waiting for three hours. Regardless of the fact that two hours in the baby started screaming, she was hungry and […] Protection Status
