We are HUGE Trolls fans in our house (me, because Justin Timberlake is my favorite person and my daugther, because she loves Poppy!) We have watched the first movie probably more than 10,000 times and we’ve even had a Trolls themed birthday party. With the current status of our world and movie theaters closed, Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Animation wanted to make sure you all had some fun goodies to host your own premiere right in the comfort of your own home! How awesome is it we still have an opportunity to see new...

Mom life is hard. But, do you want to know what’s even harder? Mom friendships. Why does it sting so much worse when our mom friends walk away? I was talking to a sweet friend today who’s going through a hard season with a friend just abandoning her and their friendship. Sadly, I had something similar happen going into this past summer so I was able to share some words of encouragement. Being rejected when we were teenagers sucked, right? The need to fit in is real and it’s something I pray my girls are able to...

Summer is in full swing and this mom is exhausted trying to keep us busy and come up with fun and creative ways to keep the kids occupied and not absorbed in technology. Wizards and Werewolves by Starlux Games available now! We’re big on getting the kids outside, but when I was approached about checking out a brand new outdoor game by Starlux Games, I jumped at the chance. Wizards and Werewolves allows your kids to really immerse themselves into an experience and bring their imagination to life. I couldn’t wait to see...

If you follow me on Instagram, I shared a new product on my Insta Stories I recently came across and couldn’t wait to share with you! If you’ve been following me for a while now, you know I’m a mom to three kids and always looking for not just the hottest new products for moms to share with you, but telling you WHY. I’m not one to fall into the trap  of neeeing every new thing that comes on the market, but I’ll tell you what, I wish I had this termo 4-in-1 baby thermometer way before now! ‘Tis the season of flu and colds...

It’s not very often I sit through a movie and feel like they literally hit the nail on the head in many ways pertaining to real life issues and trials. It’s even less often that movie features a war story where I really feel like my life can apply to what is being said. My husband is not a war veteran. In fact, I have no ties to the war at all so going into this movie, I never thought I’d be able to relate as much as I found I could. Let me start by saying, I am a huge, huge fan of Sarah Drew and Justin Bruening. Like...

I’m sure most of you have heard of the Build-a-Bear “Pay Your Age Day” fiasco going down at mall’s nationwide right now. We went to our mall in Charlotte, NC this morning. I wanted to share our experience based on the things I observed and our experience. I was expecting it to be chaotic. My friend and I planned ahead as soon as we decided to go by letting the kids browse the website and making wish lists and calling our store ahead of time to learn they were opening early. However, I had NO CLUE this would be...

This post is sponsored by Stella® but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. This summer, I’ve been winging it. Winging each day with the kids. Winging what we’re going to do, what we’ll eat – you name it. This afternoon, I couldn’t wait to get in my kitchen and just create. This summer, I’m all about fresh produce and ingredients and making fun and different recipes to share with my family. I’m not normally one to come up with killer original recipes… I usually leave that to...

Living just outside of Charlotte, NC has it perks. Three hours from both the beach and the mountains. Big city opportunities with small town daily life. Movie theaters, bowling alley’s, parks, & pools galore! Basically, anything we need is right at our fingertips. Including a fun family getaway to Great Wolf Lodge! We were invited to a Media Day of Play last week and we took full advantage of such an amazing opportunity! We arrived at the lodge at 9:00am and stayed almost until they closed the water park for the day! Lucky for...

It’s been good long while since you’ve heard anything from me. While I’ll give you more on that and what’s been soaking up my time the past several months later, I’m super excited to be back and partner with our friends at Star from Afar to share something so special for this Easter season! You may remember a few years ago hearing about the Star from Afar and I’m sure you’ve spotted my pictures on Instagram during the holiday season too. I was so thrilled to partner with them again and even more...

TOUCHDOWN! A few weeks ago, we threw a football tailgate party for our friends. Anyone who knows our family, knows football season is taken quite seriously around here, so I took this task seriously. Having three kids though, makes my party planning technique a little more difficult these days, so I turned to my friends at BJ’s Wholesale Club for the best options. BJ’s recently completed a survey to find out favorite tailgating snacks in the NC region. I took these stats and created my spread based on what I knew our guests...
