Quick and Easy Homemade Frozen Yogurt and Ice Cream
Who doesn’t love ice cream? How about frozen yogurt? I’m a fan of both. This is why I screamed Y-E-S when Stonyfield Farms asked if they could send me a YayLabs! SoftShell Ice Cream Ball™ to make some delicious frozen yogurt and ice cream with! I let this be a surprise for my kids and they were thrilled when it...
Minute Maid Juice Bars Review
Yesterday I shared with you how my family has been taste testing a variety of frozen treats this summer. We’re even making our own and having fun experimenting with different recipes. The kids love to see whose taste better! I was recently asked to review the Minute Maid Juice Bars and after doing some research to learn they’re low in...
I have some holiday money that has been burning a hole in my pocket and believe it or not I keep eyeing a Dyson vacuum. You’re probably thinking I’m nuts. I've been drooling over one for some time now. I've read the reviews; I've asked on Twitter and talked to other mom’s about them. Honestly, I felt guilt paying...
Children tend to break things. Just the other day my daughter dropped our Xoom tablet and broke it. We went 2 years without a protective case and it withstood several drops and bangs but I should have known that there would be a final drop and a new tablet on our horizon. There tends to be very little built...
Do you know someone that cannot have gluten? Chances are we all do. A friend of mine, Amy Clark from Mom Advice, opened up her heart and let the world know her struggles and how she is trying to eliminate gluten from her diet. She’s finally starting to feel better because of this. It is more common now to...
I blend a lot. That means I use my blender often and have a history of making the blades start to smoke and pieces and parts end up in the trash or recycle bin. My most recent blender (I’ll forgo adding a brand name) doesn’t even blend crushed ice well. Imagine what a mess I get when I add...
A few weeks ago the kids had spirit day at school and my kids loved getting into the blue and white spirit of homecoming and cheering on the football team. I remember these days fondly and love how my kids are experiencing this excitement. We were lucky to have been sent some new Piggy Paint nail polish colors, which...
I don’t have a baby anymore (Sniff! Sniff!) Though I've expressed my desire to maybe have another one (Shhh, don’t tell my husband!) I'm without a baby on my hip and no longer carrying a diaper bag. When I received the Green Label urban style bag by LASSIG I knew immediately that my sister, Amy and her daughter Cora...
Women love shoes. Women love to wear shoes that are stylish and comfortable. At least this woman does. I am notorious for packing shoes that will look great with my suit, dress or outfit when traveling and end up with blisters, sore legs and my feet up at the end of day. I can’t even tell you how many...

My family loves ice cream and sorbet, anything cold and tasty I suppose. Except I’m sort of picky about what they actually eat or at least when I’m in charge! A few weeks ago we were provided with a sample pack of Whole Fruit Sorbets and my family squealed in delight when they saw what had arrived. My son...
I’m tall and being 5’11’’ certainly doesn't make finding activewear easy. Luckily Jockey® contacted me asking if I wanted to try their cotton stretch bootleg pant and as soon as I saw they came in long – I was all in! As you know I’m on a mission to continue living healthy, losing inches and weight and inspiring others. This means...
Over the years I've come to meet some very inspiring, educated and determined women. Donielle Baker, she is one of these women and I've watched her blog grow, her audience and community blossom and now I’m truly excited to announce to the world she is the author of, Naturally Knocked Up. A book dedicated to helping women understand natural fertility. Quoted directly from...
Having a daughter is a joy but sometimes her hair is not so joyful to brush, if you know what I mean. My daughter has fine blond hair and when she wakes in the morning it looks as though she was in a fight with a rat and the rat won! Life is much easier knowing that after I...
Women tend to love purses and bags. I've never been this type of woman. I have a fetish for watches and eye wear but lately I've really gotten into carrying stylish bags, they make me feel so grown up, confident and even pretty. Yes, pretty because the accessory is always on my shoulder and beside me so it’s almost like an extension of what I’m...

I recently tried Moringa Oleifera from Morninga Source™ and after doing some research and reading  the facts and how the products work; I was interested in the potential health benefits. According the Morninga Source™: Moringa oleifera...

My children have always enjoyed bath time. When they were little I used to look forward to sitting down next to the tub and reading a magazine while they played. Now they’re older and they can shower by themselves and even though I’m proud of their independence and grateful that I don’t have to sit and wash them, I...
