Celebrate With The Season With Maple Sugar Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipe

maple sugar roasted pumpkin seeds

Fall is here! I love the cooler weather, the crisp air and delicious pumpkin seeds. That's my favorite part of carving our pumpkins; in fact, it's the only part I love.

Themed Bridal Shower: Breakfast At Tiffany’s

Breakfast at Tiffany's

My and my husband's wedding has been non-traditional, to say the least. We're just a few years shy of being 40 so a few traditions and practices were tossed out the window (hint: we were already living together once we were engaged) and we had a small, private ceremony with a huge reception to follow - three months later. But, there were a few traditions that we still wanted to honor; for him, … [Read more...]

A Clorox Clean In New Scrub Singles #ad


I wish I didn't have to, but I do. While I'm grateful for 2 and ½ bath, I realize I now have 3 toilets to clean. Three toilets that a man, a teen boy with poor aim, and a preschooler use. I use them, of course, but I'm the epitome of cleanliness. Always. This is a sponsored post We also have gross kitchen sinks, countertops that get God-knows-what stuck to them, a laundry sink in which … [Read more...]

The Ultimate Personalized Gift Idea: A Collection Of Sentiments From Flatterbox


Adding someone's names or initials to a gift definitely makes it feel far more thoughtful and premeditated.

DreamWorks Is The Creator Of The Newest Netflix Children’s Show #StreamTeam


It's very rare when I find that both my kids - a 5-year-old and a 15-year-old - are entertained by the same show. While it's not my teen's first choice of shows, he knows that in order for them to watch TV, they have to find a show they both agree on.

I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for RoC Skincare. I received product to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

It's only when I catch a glimpse of … [Read more...]

Personalized Gift Ideas From The Stationery Studio Plus #Giveaway

Personalized cutting board for couples

I'm learning quickly that one of the most difficult things about getting married isn't really planning the wedding; it's the process of changing your name when it's all said and done. Passports, bank accounts, credit cards, driver's license - the list goes on! Even professionally, I debated whether to change my name, hyphenate my name, or keep my maiden name.  Poor ladies, we have so much … [Read more...]
