As a mom of little ones I'm always looking for fun and exciting ways to get my children to eat. My toddler will eat just about anything you put in front of her, but my 5 year old is an extremely picky eater. She doesn't like to eat anything that isn't cut into small pieces, and she will sometimes pitch a fit if she doesn't have "crazy pieces".

#beBRCAware About BRCA Gene Mutations

I received $150 from AstraZeneca, and any opinions expressed by me are honest and reflect my actual experience. This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/AstraZeneca.

How I Used Oriental Trading to Throw a Mardi Gras Birthday Party for Less Than $100

I received a box of sample products from Oriental Trading in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own, and no other form of compensation was received. I love to throw parties. We usually celebrate all the big holidays, birthdays, and other occasions with a party. Sometimes I like to throw a huge get together, and other times I like to keep it simple with just a few close family and friends. We always have a great time, and seeing all those smiling faces makes me happy. The downside to being the party host is parties can get pretty expensive. While I tend to go bigger for my … [Read more...]
