#Win Tickets To Alexander and The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day!

Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad dayI loved to read as a child and can fondly recall when I was first introduced to Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.  That catch phrase was used for everything wrong that ever affected my friends and I for a long time. I think my parents were soon sick of hearing, in a very dramatic way of course, that I or my sister were having the most “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day” pretty much every other day of the week. What!?! We were kids! Disney has taken this wonderful classic and turned it into a hilarious movie fit for the whole family to see! Continue reading

#DarePeanutFree Bear Paws & Wagon Wheels With Wowbutter #Giveaway

wowbutterA few years ago my world changed dramatically when our youngest was diagnosed with food allergies.  Overnight we had to rethink how we fed our family. Everything from meals to the smallest of snacks needed to be scrutinized.  We were fortunate that William outgrew two of his big allergies, eggs and dairy, but the pesky allergy to peanuts and tree nuts has hung on. Through diligence and yes, even fear, our household has become a family of stellar label readers. This has made me appreciate companies like Dare Foods even more. Continue reading

Late Nights & Pillow Fights With Glama Gal Mother Daughter PJ Party!

glama galAs my own daughter enters tween-hood I fondly recall my time during that golden age. Who remembers trying out their mom’s make -up or looking for treasures in her jewelry box? How about laughing with your girlfriends as you modeled your first training bra and then trying to hide it under a sweatshirt at school?  The best times were spent having sleepovers at each others homes, staying up late to watch a scary movie and stuffing your face with forbidden night time snacks like chocolate! Oh, those were the days… Continue reading
