IMG_3915.JPG

While yes, this is a sponsored post, I'm going to tell you guys the Gods honest truth: Neutrogena is the only sunscreen I use on myself and on my children and that's the way it has been for years.

Screen Shot 2015-08-16 at 3.03.22 PM

The early re-do this year was the family room. And I won't go so far to say that I hated my family room but … [Read more...]

I have to admit, I've really been enjoying having my boys home this summer and I'll definitely miss them when they are back to school in the fall. On my list for August … [Read more...]

Another brand I met at Sweet Suite last week in New York City was the makers behind the Perfect Drink.

The Perfect Drink … [Read more...]

As usual, it's the summer of road tripping in our house. If you can't find us home and the kids going to camp, we're hitting the road and headed to the beach or some other fun-filled weekend.

A couple of weeks ago, I got home to a huge box on my front step. I had no idea what it was but I opened it to find these goodies inside: Holy fun! There was a note from the folks at Verizon thanking me for the participation in this campaign and also a note about my boys. I loved how personal they were with their gift selections. They sent a … [Read more...]

5 Awesome Summer Fireball Drinks

Screen Shot 2015-06-10 at 6.40.03 PM

Over Memorial Day, my sister in law introduced us to Fireball Cinnamon Whisky. I know, I know, apparently we're the last one to jump on this bandwagon. Even Pitbull has a song about Fireball. (I never actually realized what that song was about.) And I'm also not a Whisky fan, so I didn't think I would like this but one sip had me looking up … [Read more...]
