Fun Gift Ideas for Teen Girls

Looking for gift ideas for teen girls?  I'm right there with you!  With Christmas right around the corner, I find myself scrambling for ideas on what to get my daughter this year.  She isn't a little kid any more.  As sad as it sounds, there will be no more Littlest Pet Shops, baby dolls, coloring books or Light Brights under the tree.  I am now the proud mother of teenagers and they are a little bit more difficult to shop for.  If you are trying to decide what to get that teen girl on your gift list this holiday … [Read more...]

How to Organize the Medicine Cabinet and Find What You Need Every Time!

Why should you learn how to organize the medicine cabinet?  Have you ever had a sick child at 3 AM only to realize that the medicine is expired?

Atlanta Bloggers Celebrate Spring with Great American Cookies! #BrownieBling

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Great American Cookies. Blogging can be a rather solitary business.  Sure, we say that we work in Social Media but usually that just means we are 'social' with people online.  Our blogging friends, followers, and fans interact with us via computer but only occasionally do we actually get to hang out with each other in person.  When bloggers DO get together with each other in person you can bet there will be food involved.  This week, I had the pleasure of hanging out with a few of my … [Read more...]

Be Your Own Barista and RaceTrac Giveaway #BeYourOwnBarista

This post has been sponsored by RaceTrac but all opinions expressed here are my own. Spring break is coming quickly and my family will hopefully be on the road to visit family.  When my husband and I travel, we end up drinking an awful lot of coffee.  Sometimes, in order to make it safely through 3 AM back woods roads the only thing keeping our eyes open is a large mug full of steaming hot java!  He, of course, takes his coffee black with no sweeteners, no flavor and (I think) no personality!  I am a light, sweet, and preferably peppermint … [Read more...]
