Chicago Double Decker Tour

Note: We were given passes to review the Chicago Trolley and Double Decker Co. All opinions are my own. Last week my family and I decided to take a family “staycation.” If you don’t know, we live about 30 miles south of Chicago, so to us, we consider Chicago our home. Did you ever realize […]

Cascade Platinum

Note: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. When it comes to shopping, there are very few things that I buy the name brand product, but Cascade is definitely one of them. I have […]

Father’s Day Picnic in the Park

Note: I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and Mariano’s. Last week I took the kids shopping at Mariano’s in Frankfort, IL, because we were going to have a Father’s Day picnic in the park that night. […]

Raise a Cone to Summer

Tomorrow is the last day of school before summer break. I don’t know if I’m excited or not! I’m excited to have fun with the kids and have a few less obligations (after all three day camps are over), but I’m nervous that my nerves won’t handle all their fighting. Hopefully the weather will stay […]

Living the Good Life

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Allstate for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. It’s hard to believe that this fall I will have known my husband for 20 years already. We met in high school when my friend introduced me to her then boyfriend. We had to meet, because we have […]

Is your kitchen the heart of your home? It is in my house. Whenever there is a party people gather in my kitchen to munch on food and talk. My kitchen isn’t as big or pretty as I’d like it to be, but I do try to keep it presentable for when I have guests […]

What do your kids snack on?

Do you ever buy a snack for your kids at the store only to find out they don’t like it? It’s frustrating to waste all that money! We’ve had that happen too many times in our household.  I was asked to tell you about Goodies Co. which is a company that sends you a box […]

Make-A-Wish® Foundation Needs Airline Miles- World Wish Day

Note: This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Make-A-Wish®. All opinions are my own. One thing I’ve been extremely thankful for is that my children are healthy and I’m always worried that I’m tempting fate by trying to become pregnant again. I’m afraid that for some reason my baby will have something wrong […]

Do you juice?

Years and years ago, we used to juice all the time. Recently I went to Mariano’s and got fresh juiced orange juice and my husband now wants it all the time. I got two bags of oranges last week, and guess what’s still sitting on my counter. If I had this pretty juicer, I could […]

Is your oven Easter ready? #EOSpringCleaning

I can’t believe that Easter is this weekend. Where did this year go?! Pretty soon it’ll be summer break, then vacation, back to school, and before we know it there will be snow on the ground again. Oh wait, that was 2 days ago. Happy Spring here in Chicago! Are you ready for Easter? I […]

Online Games- Do you Play?

Many years ago, before having kids I used to play a lot of online games. My best friend and I used to join up online to play Euchre nightly. I kind of miss that! I also used to play a lot of Facebook games. One thing I’ve never tried, though, is online bingo. I’ve been […]
