Spend some family time with Unilever Ice Cream from Target

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. We are a family that never stops. We have so many activities that it isn’t funny and add in the fact that Daddy has been traveling a lot and we really don’t get family time anymore. In that rare moment that we have […]

Chicago Toy and Game Fair Flash Giveaway

My kids look forward to the Chicago Toy & Game Fair every year. My oldest loves it the most. He loves to sit down and try all the new games. He is definitely the gamer of the family. This year is no different. Every time we drive downtown and they see Navy Pier they ask […]

Baby #5 is on it’s way!

I don’t think I’ve officially announced it here, but we are expecting baby #5 at Christmas this year. Yes, my due date is Christmas Day!! We are very excited to add one more to our family. I would have loved to share a picture from my first ultrasound, but unfortunately my OB’s office didn’t email […]

Why We Homeschool Part 3- Flexibility

Yesterday morning was rough. No one could focus on anything. I fought and yelled and fought and sent kids to bed and fought some more. Eventually, once my clothes were dried (it was laundry day), I decided to take the kids for some lunch and to just get out and enjoy the beautiful weather. Yesterday was […]

Why We Homeschool Part 2 The Activities

Last week I told you why we homeschool. I felt like even though I wrote almost a 900 word post I didn’t touch on everything. I was questioned on socialization of my children. I’m pretty sure my kids get as much, if not more socialization than those in public school. We are an extremely active […]

Stay connected after school with @FamilyMobile with the Lowest Priced Unlimited Plans

Note: This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. It’s almost time to go back to school for some people. We just decided last week that we are going to homeschool. That doesn’t mean our son won’t be away from us. There are times when we have […]

The Stork- Helping with Fertility Issues at Home

This post was sponsored by The Stork and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. If you’re a normal visitor to my blog, you’re probably wondering why I’m talking about infertility when I have four kids. We’ve always wanted a large family and decided we wanted them close together. When Buddy was 3 months old […]

Custom Family Necklace from Bama + Ry

I have been dying for a family necklace for a very long time. I’ve hinted and flat out asked my husband for one for a few years. I guess it’s a good thing he didn’t get the memo since we decided to add a fourth to our family. I was contacted by Bama + Ry […]

Make Family Memories and Share What’s Good

Note: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Welch’s. I received product samples to facilitate my review, and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. Our lives are hectic and finding time to make memories as a family feels like it’s something that happens few and far between. I feel like […]

Note: I was compensated in way of movie tickets for this post. All opinions are my own. This past summer I took the kids to see a movie and saw that Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs 2 was coming out this month. I was so excited! My family all loved the first movie and […]

Keeping Kids Healthy and Safe in the Summer

I can’t believe summer vacation is already over for our family! We definitely had a very busy summer. I’m not sure what all we did, because it never felt like we had time to do anything, but I know we did stuff. There was three weeks of day camp, one week of resident camp, my […]
