Toshiba Satellite C55-B5299 Laptop Review {and a Staples Gift Card Giveaway!}

Toshiba Satellite C55-B5299 Back to School - Pinterest

Thanks to Orin from the blog Thrifty Nifty Mommy for this guest review. All opinions are his. Are you in the market for a new laptop for you or your preteen or teen before the school year starts? Most preteens and teens can't complete all their homework and studies without their own laptop these days. If they don't have their own, they are sure to occupy yours for long periods of time while they research for reports and study assignments. So, in the interest of keeping your personal laptop ... ...continue reading

Check out the Gentle Automatic Bouncer from Ingenuity – Review & #Giveaway


When I was pregnant with my first child, we were grateful to get our hands on any piece of used baby equipment we could.  We were a poor student and a part-time teacher, so hand-me-downs were the theme of our baby ensemble.  Everything from that original batch has either deteriorated, broken down, or become a big pain to use, so one by one, each of those car seats, strollers, and other baby paraphernalia has made its way back to Craigslist or the local thrift store.  I have learned by experience ... ...continue reading

Toon Goggles – On Demand Entertainment Review

googletoons copy

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Toon Goggles.  All opinions are my own. Generally, I hold strong reigns when it comes to TV in our home.  I try to keep it limited and monitored.  I'd like to say that my toddler is media-free, but sometimes, mom has got to shower without worrying that he'll find the knives, scissors, and keys to the car while I'm not in the room!  For these times,  I want my child to be entertained and stationary, but at the same time, I want him to be learning good things ... ...continue reading

Baby Jogger Summit X3 Review and Giveaway!

Baby Jogger Summit X3

As a family who likes to stay active, a quality jogging stroller was on our must-haves when we compiled our list of baby essentials.  We received a great jogging stroller when our little guy was born, but after 2 years and many, many miles, it has seen better days.  Since I'm training for a the St. Jude Memphis Marathon weekend, where I'll be raising money for the kids of St. Jude, I knew I wanted the top of the line jogging stroller to make training a little easier on me.  That's when ... ...continue reading

*Thanks to Janessa from Thrifty Nifty Mommy for sharing this post with me. All opinions are hers.* It was my 10th and 11th grade English teach, Mrs. Schultz, who really fostered my love of writing.

Her high expectations really pushed me to learn, grow, and become the writer that I am today. In fact, if it wasn't ... ...continue reading

A Review of The Bouqs: Flowers from a Volcano


I'm a such a sucker for fresh flowers!  Most holidays and birthdays, I tell my husband that a bouquet of flowers is all I want.  When we were newly married, I would budget $5 every month to buy something pretty and fresh so that we could cheer up our basement apartment, and it must of been then that I really started loving the idea of always having flowers in the home.  Sure, they are short-lived, eventually die, and can get definitely get pricey, but there is nothing quite like a big bunch of ... ...continue reading
