It’s Beginning to Feel Patriotic Around Here!

As an Oriental Trading Ambassador, I receive products to test and facilitate posts. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays. Family time, lots of food, and of course, fireworks fill our day of celebration. I really enjoy decorating my home with patriotic items for the entire Summer, so I usually decorate a few days before Memorial Day and leave it up until the end of July. I'm just a Southern gal who loves her nation, and I make it obvious. I haven't really had a chance to hang my red, white, and blue outside this year. Afternoon pop-up storms … [Read more...]

Busy Beauty Showerless Shave Gel Review

I received a sample product from Busy Beauty in exchange for my honest thoughts. All opinions are my own. Affiliate links are included, and I receive a small commission from each purchase.

Aubrey’s 4th Birthday Western Shindig

I am proud to be an Oriental Trading ambassador and received product to facilitate this post. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. Yesterday, I mentioned the little one turned 4. Seriously, she's FOUR y'all! Where did the time go? It seems like this was just yesterday! It definitely doesn't feel like that photo was taken four years ago, but it's time to come to terms with my baby growing up on me, even if I'm not ready for her to yet.

Relaxing Summer? What’s That?

Summer is supposed to be about relaxing, right? Not for us! Yesterday's Summer Solstice may have been the official start to Summer, but I definitely didn't have a chance to slow down and relax. I never imagined I would be a newly homeschooling mother at the same time my home business would see huge growth. The hours have been long, but I'm hustling along, doing my best to stay organized and on track. June has been full of birthdays, including my own newly 4 year old, Father's Day, and graduations. I between all the events, I've split my time between our choice to begin homeschooling in June … [Read more...]

Release your Inner-Nerd: Awesome Gadgets and Apps to Satisfy the Minds of Science and Weather Geeks

It’s difficult to find gifts people will like. It’s awkward to both give and get that which we don’t want. Sure, it’s the thought that counts but you can’t count the number of times you’ve seen flashes of disappointment. My husband always says I'm so hard to shop for. I'm not shy about my interests, and I blatantly point out things I want all the time. For instance, I'm a weather geek, so much so that family and friends watch the weather report then call me to see if I agree! Here are a few apps, gadgets, and tools that make great gifts for weather lovers like myself!
