Thank you to Citadel Country Spirit USA for sponsoring this post so I can scoop you on the top Citadel Country Spirit USA highlights. All opinions are 100% my own! Last year, round about this time, my husband and I did a very, very cool thing: we left the building sans kids (thanks, Dad!) and […]

Hollywood Darlings: Your Favorite 90s Childhood Star Friends
Thank you to Pop TV for sponsoring this post so I could scoop all of you on the fantastic Hollywood Darlings show! All opinions are 100% my own. Any other Full House friends out there? Or fans of Step by Step and 7th Heaven? I know, me too! Growing up, these shows were the sweet […]
Three Cheers for the Good Effort!
I’m so glad I get to tell you about the funny new movie Daddy’s Home on my blog – it’s a perfect match for me and my family. You see, Daddy’s Home is about two dads working hard to wow their kids, but fantastically blundering it up as they go. And as far as parenting […]

Our Love Affair with the Butt-Kicking Black Widow
Thanks to Target, what’s hotter right now on a parents’ radar than buzz about girls vs. boys vs. gender-neutral toys?

How the Astronaut Wives Club Got It So Darn Right
As I write this, I am currently up-to-date with my On Demand corners-of-child-rearing viewing of Astronaut Wives Club (I know, I KNOW.

Go Hollywood with Your Kids: UrLife
Aren’t our fancy smartphones fabulous? It is entirely possible to capture almost every minute of your child’s life with one sleek device. Back in my day, video recording required more large equipment than NASA’s shuttle launches and there was this crazy thing called rolls of film. You’d drop them off at your local Kmart, wait […]

Hang with the Band and Score Some Free iTunes!
This post is sponsored by the band Simple Tenants. On so many of these desperate days of motherhood, when the backpacks are mysteriously lost and the toast is utterly burnt, the tether to my faith is the worship music blaring through my iPod. While my mind is scattered and our days crazed, the grounding beat […]
