Toddler Easter Basket Gift Ideas

Toddler Easter Basket Supplies Featured

Toddlers - They are interesting creatures. They are into everything yet still not old enough to understand games or crafts. This can make filling up an Easter Basket challenging. Most of the gifts I buy for her are geared for 3 and up because there isn't a lot offered for toddlers. You do what you feel most comfortable with, but I buy gifts based on my child's abilities not age range.  I packed her Easter basket full of items that were affordably ... [ Read More ]

Mom Me-Time Sweepstakes


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Best Western. All opinions are 100% mine. Seems like the only time I get to travel now is when I am required to do so on business. It's fun to get away for a bit, but I can't remember the last time I truly traveled out of pure enjoyment that didn't require me to sit in meetings all day. Do you know a busy business mom who spends too much time traveling for work and not enough time traveling for ... [ Read More ]

Family Movie Night: Big Hero 6 Review

Big Hero 6 Movie Night

The rain is non-stop and I know we need it because the lakes are craving more water, but enough already!

It took some convincing with some of our family members. Dax our Dog could not sit still enough so he looked on from a distance. The lighting is ... [ Read More ]

The Slap Heard Across the Soccer Field


There is a lot of hype about a new show called The Slap. I watched the preview, but I have yet to watch it because I am a mom and watching TV is a luxury; therefore I choose my shows wisely. I know the show revolves around an adult slapping another person's child that causes drama throughout their circle. Pretty bold move if you ask me, but that is another blog post for another night... It got me thinking about the slap that I recently ... [ Read More ]

An Afternoon at The Coop Frisco

The Coop Frisco

It was a rainy Friday afternoon and I had taken the day off work to catch up on some errands. You know you are getting old when you take off a day off work just to get caught up on chores. I picked up Reese after her nap at the sitter's and planned an impromptu trip to The Coop in Frisco, TX. After seeing a few other moms take their kiddos to The Coop and watching a Shark Tank episode that featured the founders, I had to see ... [ Read More ]
