Ladies, how do you feel when you're wearing a pair of high heels?  I'll admit, I feel sexy and sophisticated when I'm wearing a pair of high heels.

Here's how my make-up & beauty routine used to go in the mornings: out of the shower after a workout, I'm generally in a hurry because I'm a busy Mom with a crazy schedule.  I was usually blow drying my hair-one handed while I did a mad dash through multiple make-up bags that sat next to my bathroom sink, trying to find the make-up I wanted for … [Read more...]

When the Nerf Mega Thunderbow Blaster came in the mail, and I realized what it was, I quickly ushered it upstairs before my husband and boys could see.  I opened the box, loaded it up and then snuck back downstairs.  Then, I unleashed.  Much laughter followed and my boys were more than happy to add his ginormous Nerf product to their already large … [Read more...]

My boys have been having fun with Crashlings, the latest craze in the toy world.  I'd say these are more boy-friendly than girl but lately I've found that all of my boys' girl friends seem to be totally into things like aliens so I'm gonna go with this toy being an all play for both sexes!  Crashlings are a line of little aliens (you can see from … [Read more...]
