I’m Such a Mom of Boys: Photos from Monster Jam #MonsterJam

Screen Shot 2014-10-04 at 8.38.21 AM

So we headed to the Wells Fargo Center in Philly last night to see Monster Jam. (There's a sentence my 20-year-old self would not think she would ever say!) With two boys, watching big trucks do loud and crazy things is right up our family's alley.  I bet all you Moms of girls-only are super jealous that I got to do this, right? So I wanted to … [Read more...]

Soccer Moms: The Product YOU NEED (My Family Fights Over It!)

IMG_0473.JPG

Right around the time that soccer season started this fall, a friend posted about the Sport Brella ($19.99, Amazon). I think it was my friend Amy from TeachMama.com but I can't be sure - was that you Amy?  If so, thank you!  I am totally in love with this little product that I ended up ordering after seeing it on Facebook and can't believe that … [Read more...]

Get Your Back to School Shopping List Paid For By Great Clips! #GREATLIST

Screen Shot 2014-08-13 at 8.33.04 PM

Our family has been loyal fans of Great Clips for both my husband and boys for year.  We have a local Great Clips and have gotten to know the girls there over the years. I became an even bigger fan too when they introduced the Great Clips app a couple of years ago, making online check-in a breeze and cutting down on our wait times.  (I can't … [Read more...]

So last month, I talked about how I'm loving having CVS Gold Emblem goodies readily available on hand to take to the pool with my kids this summer.  Since then, we've also taken our CVS Gold Emblem snacks on the road for a vacation! Earlier this month, we rented a beach house with some friends down in Delaware and I knew that tossing some of our … [Read more...]

So we're currently on vacation at the beach with some friends and I broke out Tapple a couple of nights ago.  It was a game that came in my Sweet Suite gift box and we thought we'd give it a try one night.  It's our new addiction!  This quick and fun game is great for both kids and parents and we've been playing it after hours adults only … [Read more...]

Cole asked me the other day how many weeks were left of summer vacation.  We got out the calendar and counted... and realized that we have 6 weeks left.  That's it!  This summer is flying by and we're already halfway there.  I feel like we just started. It's been a whirlwind of road trips, pool time and weeks and camp.  The weather's been great … [Read more...]

Day three of our family road trip and we're in the car from southern North Carolina and heading to Williamsburg, Virginia. GPS puts today's trip at a little over 4 hours. Hubby's cruising to some music, the kids are watching a movie and I'm playing on the iTunes App Store looking for entertainment. I found this free App from L'oreal called … [Read more...]

Only two and a half weeks 'til school lets out for my kids for the SUMMER!  I can't believe it.  And as every Mom can relate, I have that whole mixed bag of feelings going on - relief that I'll no longer have to pack lunches, help with homework and stick to the school schedule but also panic about what to do with them for the entire summer! One … [Read more...]

Top Five Favorite Rides at both Disneyland Parks #DisneySMMoms #California

IMG_2430

I'm a self-proclaimed amusement park wuss.  The only ride I go on the majority of time at any given amusement park is the nearby bench.  I know - I'm so lame! As my kids get older, the scarier the better in their opinion.  In fact, after a couple of trips to Disney World last year, I wrote this post on the Top 10 Scariest Rides in Disney World … [Read more...]
