I was so excited to find out a few weeks ago I was chosen to host a fun and fabulous Disney Side Home Celebration sponsored by Disney Parks and BSM Media. We are HUUUGE Disney fans in this house and both littles are so thrilled to be sharing the excitement with friends! As soon as I was chosen, I was of course anxious and excited to find out what we were going to be sent to work with. I’ve taken to Pinterest already to start pinning some fun ideas and gathering thoughts on what sort of party to throw. Even though BSM and Disney...

Drum roll please!! Things have been so crazy wrapping up school activities before Christmas break, getting ready for the holiday’s, and crazy schedules – I haven’t had a chance to announce our baby’s gender for you all yet!! Several weeks ago, we went for a 3D ultrasound at New Beginnings 3D in Gastonia, NC. I was so anxious to get a peek of our baby bean and find out if I should be buying more blue or hanging onto all of our pink! Both kids wanted a brother, our good friends had a baby boy in the spring and they...

You may have noticed things around here have been pretty mute and slow moving lately. I promise, I do have a good excuse for that and our family is so excited to make this announcement and share our news with you all! When I first started this blog, it served as a way to keep family in the loop of what’s going on in our lives and it has evolved into something more that I truly love and enjoy doing. Unfortunately, sometimes life gets in the way and while I am a mom first, the updates here don’t come as frequently sometimes as...

I shipped my baby off to Kindergarten last week. Leading up to the day and the first week of seeing him off every morning wasn’t easy for this mom. While he was so completely ready, I definitely was not. Gone are the days of lounging as late as we want, staying up late watching movies and having tickle fights, and having nothing but time throughout the day to do whatever we want. Now starts the days of my sweet little man being more influenced by other adults and friends than he is by me.. and this I struggle with. I’m still...

I remember the days when I would bask in the sun for hours upon hours doing nothing but slathering myself with tanning oil every hour. I felt lucky to have skin that tanned so easily and never burned and never thought twice about the damage I was doing to my skin and potentially my health. Fast forward ten years later and now I have two small kids and more of a brain to know that was dumb. Cancer runs in my family. Granted, no one has had skin cancer (knock on wood,) but cancer nonetheless; and the one thing I’ve learned, it’s...

This is a sponsored post with One2One Network for Crest. All opinions expressed are my own.   Being a mom of two young kids, setting them up for healthy futures is one of my most important roles as their mom. I want to instill healthy habits on them now, so they stick with them as they get older. Proper oral care is a gateway to our health.. and that is something I never quite thought so much about until now. Dr. Travis Stork, Emmy nominated host of The Doctors and board-certified emergency medicine physician, has partnered with...

If there’s one thing my kiddos have gotten from their mama, it’s their love of performing! Little man belts out some songs like it’s nobody’s business and little sis is not far behind! I still remember when I got my first solo (in third grade) belting out “fiiiive smellllyyy stickkerrrrs!” like it was nobody’s business in our school version of “12 Days of Christmas.” Then in fifth grade, when my music teacher pulled me aside and said she spent weeks walking around the classroom to find...
