Monitor And Limit Your Child’s Screen Time! @Screentimelabs #Ad

    If your children are like mine, they love technology and are very savvy at navigating all of their electronic devices.  As parents, we all want our kids to be in step with today's modern times because we know that technology is evolving daily and will open many doors for them in the future.  The problem is that sometimes young people become consumed with their tablets and smartphones and don't know how to use them in moderation.       Thankfully, us parents have The Screen Time app in our arsenal.  It provides parents with the management tools to limit the time that kids spend on their devices. It is available for both iOS and Android users and is a wonderful resource for parents who want to establish boundaries when it comes to their children's screen time.     The Screen Time allows parents to automatically limit the amount that their child spends on selected apps each day.  You can even block certain apps from ever … [Read more...]

Share The Gift Of Love With Precious Moments! @PreciousMoment #PreciousMoments #Ad

    When I was a little girl my Godmother, Millie, had a curio cabinet where she kept all of her treasures.  I remember visiting her home and standing over this cabinet in awe of all the beautiful figurines and precious mementos that she kept there.  She had an extensive Precious Moments collection and she would take each one out, one by one, and allow me to carefully dust them and admire how beautiful they were.  Right around that time is probably when I fell in love with Precious Moments.     This year, I have been given the opportunity to represent Precious Moments as part of the Precious Moments Ambassador Program.  I'm very excited because this means that I will now be able to start my own collection and to share all of their beautiful collectibles with all of you.  Just this past holiday season, I was able to add a “Holly Cardinal” Petite Brilliant-Shaped Glass Ornament from Precious Moments to our family ornaments.     … [Read more...]

Choose Your Smooth This Summer! #ChooseYourSmooth @SheSpeaksUp @GilletteVenus @Walmart #Ad

    Let's be honest, Ladies, it's so much easier not to shave your legs during the winter.  Even though most of us probably don't want to admit it, we enjoy going all-natural during the cold weather months when we don't really have to show off our legs.  If you are like me, this is because you hate having razor bumps on your legs or cutting yourself with old or cheap razors.  Luckily, I have found the solution to all my shaving problems and I choose smooth legs this summer thanks to Venus!     Every girl is unique – from her personality to her lifestyle to the way she carries herself.

Recognize The Superhero Father In Your Life! @CrossPens #WriteGift #Ad

    This weekend, my husband coached my son's basketball game and I couldn't help but to look at him in awe.  It's one thing to realize that you have a great husband but it is so amazing to be able to able to look upon the father of your children and see that you picked the perfect man for the job.  He truly lives for both of our boys and they really look up to him as their ideal male role model.     Over the years, my husband has proven time and time again that he would make any sacrifice necessary to take care of our family.  At one point, he worked two jobs, six days a week just to be able to provide for us.  Also, when we found out that our younger son was suffering from severe asthma, he started working nights just to be able to take care of our son during the day.  Even when he had very little time to sleep he made sure that he attended every single basketball game, graduation, and parent-teacher conference.   … [Read more...]

What Type Of Mom Are You? @Timex #Giveaway #Ad

    This weekend, I took my boys to the park so they could enjoy some time outdoors with their friends.  As I looked around, I noticed all the other moms there with their children.  It's interesting how we are all women who come from different walks of life but we are all joined together by our experiences as mothers.     Another thing that is wonderful is that there are all types of moms and they all express themselves in different ways.  This is great for kids to see because it teaches them the importance of celebrating their individuality and having tolerance for others who are different from them.     Timex is the the leading watch manufacturer in the US, with a watch for every wrist.  They have been helping moms keep track of time and show off their style for many, many years.  I've always been a big fan of their watches because they are perfect for dressing up, dressing down, and everything in between.  The best … [Read more...]

5 Tips For Doing Your Baby’s Laundry! #Amazinghood @Dreft #Giveaway #Ad

*This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Dreft and DiMe Media and all opinions are my own.     Becoming a new parent for the first time is an exhilarating experience because you become engulfed in the excitement of bringing life into the world. While there is tremendous joy in planning for the arrival of your little bundle of joy, there is much preparation that must take place to make sure that everything is perfect when baby makes his or her big debut.  This includes mothers and fathers learning everything that they can about how to care for a new baby and making sure their home is babyproof.     When I was pregnant with my first child, I had no idea that so many things had to be done before he was born.  One area where I was completely clueless was how to do my baby's laundry.  I was worried about what detergent I should use, how I would remove stains on baby clothes, and whether baby poop came out in the washing machine. … [Read more...]
