Watch Mom Life on TV! #BetterThings on FX

Watch Mom Life on TV! #BetterThings on FX

Have you heard about the new series on FX called Better Things? It perfectly describes how chaotic mom life can be! A show about a working mom (Sam), a single mom at that, who barely keeps up with her three kids and all her life responsibilities? Each of Sam’s daughters has her own issues and demands on Sam’s time and sanity, and also a mother who is not quite all there. Add to that a busy career as an actress, and you get one exhausted lady who has seen it all, heard it all, and no longer gives a [insert not family-friendly word here.] […]

DIY a Long Distance Care Package for your Spouse

DIY a Long Distance Care Package for your Spouse

“You just want a boyfriend in a jar,” my friends would say to me. This was in back high school when all I really wanted was a boyfriend, but also my own life. So my friends would tease me that I needed a boyfriend I could store in a jar, and take out to play with whenever I wanted, and then put back on the shelf whenever I wanted to spend time with them instead. It was funny at the time, but the concept stuck in my mind. Do I want a husband in a jar? Is that what I have […]

A Children’s Activity Book about Healthy Eating + Giveaway

A Children’s Activity Book about Healthy Eating + Giveaway

Getting children to eat healthy is certainly a challenge. I struggle with feeding my toddler on a daily basis and I know many Moms are in the same situation. Sometimes kids just need an extra fun push in the right directions to eat fun and colorful foods. I remember how much I loved activity books as a younger version of myself, and combining the idea of activity books with the concept of healthy, mindful eating results in a fun book and teachable experience. I received a copy of this lovely book called If It Does Not Grow, Say No to check it […]

Showing Texas Pride with the fragrance of Bluebonnets #PurexFreshBluebonnet

Showing Texas Pride with the fragrance of Bluebonnets #PurexFreshBluebonnet

Thanks to Purex® and #SocialInsiders for providing me with some #PurexFreshBluebonnet to enjoy and share with my readers. All opinions expressed here are my own. One of the first things that come to mind when I think about Texas in the springtime, is bluebonnets. These lovely wildflowers are a symbol of this wonderful state in which I live. It is almost a rite of passage in Texas to get a photo of yourself (or your kids) in a field of bluebonnets. Finding a patch of bluebonnets in Houston isn’t easy, but several years ago a friend and I drove past […]

Tea Lovers Rejoice, and Celebrate my Birthday with me

Tea Lovers Rejoice, and Celebrate my Birthday with me

It’s no secret that I love tea. I much prefer tea over coffee. Anyone else like me? Only a few years ago did I learn about loose leaf tea and all the delicious flavor options that are out there. Now I’m a bit addicted to trying new flavored teas, loose-leaf or not. Loose-leaf tea drinking might be new to some people, and it was a little bit of a learning curve for me until I realized I needed to get a steeping ball in the right size to fit my cup (the first one I bought was HUGE by accident).
