Last week, little man and I got to head on a date night with our friend Dana at BabyElan {Daily} and her son to check out Big Hero 6! Our little guys are best buds, but go to separate schools, so it was a fun surprise for them to see the movie together. Landyn had been talking and talking about it since seeing previews over the last few weeks so he could not WAIT for it to start!   Princesses and girly things have pretty much taken over this house with a tantrum filled, spoiled three year old around here, so it was nice to take the...

Last spring, our family got into a car accident. No one was hurt (thankfully) and it could have been way worse, but it was still pretty bad and really scary. When someone comes at you head on and your precious babies are in the backseat, your mind races. “What if they aren’t buckled tight enough?” “What will happen if they get hit on their side?” “Please, God let their carseat serve them with enough protection right now.”   Thankfully for us, we got hit on the front corner instead of anywhere...

  I feel like for the most part, shows around here are geared towards princesses and girly things. When I saw Marvel Universe Live! was coming to Charlotte, I knew my little man would be PSYCHED! To say that he loves superheroes is an understatement… and being the crazy active five year old he is, I know he’s going to love the show they put on! On Friday, November 14 – Iron Man, Spiderman, Hulk, Captain America, and the rest are headed to Time Warner Cable Arena to shoot some webs, tear up some buildings, and fight...

When I was first approached by Friendly Rooster about an upcoming Charlotte event, I was eager to learn more. I loved learning that while Friendly Rooster is an online shoe retailer for little ones, they also make charitable donations to help make a difference. For every pair of Tip Toey Joey shoes sold, Friendly Rooster donates a pair to an American born baby into poverty. Our family always tries to be conscious of giving back all year round, but especially at the holiday’s, I like to make both myself and my kids more aware of how...

Now that my mind is back on baby mode, my eyes are busy scanning for the most adorable goodies to start stocking back up on. With Halloween this Friday, you might be looking for some cute little treats for baby to celebrate! No trick or treating for the little ones, but there are plenty of Halloween inspired treats to get them in the festive spirit!   With a little one, even if you don’t want to dress them up in costume, Finn + Emma, Kapital K, Sticky Bellies, Little Toader, and Stuck On You still have you covered! I’m...

If you follow me on Facebook, it will come as no surprise that I am a huge Tori Spelling fan. Every since her 90210 and Saved by the Bell days, I have loved her. Why? I don’t really know; maybe, because she’s an iconic image of the 90’s and growing up in that era, she was everywhere. Maybe, because I can relate to her? As a busy mom that is; I watch her rush out the door to school, drop from exhaustion at the end of the day, plan extravagant and exciting DIY birthday parties- I do all of those things! I love seeing...

As I sit here with my Facebook tab open, cell phone next to me awaiting my next tweet, and see some instagram notifications pop up; I realized something. Social media has taken over our lives. So much so, that it literally takes away from our real lives. Let me ask you this.. head to your Facebook profile. How many friends do you have? How many of those friends do you see or talk to in person or on the phone on a regular basis? How many of those friends do you write a generic “Happy Birthday” message when their birthday rolls...

Halloween is craziness – – at least I know it is in our house (and I’ll be sharing a little bit about the kiddos costumes and adventures this year soon!) BUT, sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the moment. I know I’m guilty of worrying too much about getting pictures than I am about living IN the moment.. and that’s something I’m really resolving to try to change. But, we still want to capture those memories, right!?   The most ideal situation is being able to have someone else capture...

If there’s one thing I have mastered over the years is how to buy a good bottle of wine. The thing I once had mastered that isn’t so much the case anymore? Being able to finish that bottle of wine before it goes bad. I feel like I’ve wasted several bottles, because sometimes you just want that one glass while you’re winding down at night and then by the time you’re ready for another.. it’s days down the road and the bottle you opened for that one glass is no longer fresh. I was so excited to get to...

This is a “sponsored post in partnership with Acorn Influence and SC Johnson. The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value to write it. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. Fall means chaos in our house. Time crunches, homework, soccer practice, dance class, and running on everyone’s schedules, but my own. Laundry and cleaning the house almost feels impossible to fit in when you have kiddos in school and...
