Are you ready to tackle the back-to-school routine? Some days I feel like we are ready, while other days I feel like we are woefully under prepared. Our biggest issue in our family is our routine. While we never had to adhere to a preschool or daycare routine, we did participate in a few activities during the fall/winter/spring months that kept us on a somewhat of a schedule.[more ...]

I often struggle as a parent. I know, surprising, right? I’m not perfect! In these struggles, however, I feel like I am being refined. Sure, I don’t always “get” the lesson in the struggles (hence why I continue to have them), but I when I finally do have that “Ah ha!” parenting moment, I want to shout it from the rooftops.

My family cruised on the Disney Magic
for the first time this year, and it was quite an adventure. From the moment we stepped foot inside the terminal in Port Canaveral, Florida, I knew we were in for a special vacation.
Among the many reasons we chose to cruise on this particular itinerary and ship was the fact that Caroline would get to meet one of her heroes, Captain America. Even the 5 year olds understand that Marvel and Disney go hand in hand now (as does the Star Wars franchise), but they don’t quite understand why we can’t meet anyone in the parks yet (legal blah, blah if you ask me), so a cruise with at least one Marvel character was our best bet for fulfilling her dream at the moment.[more ...]
Last weekend, I attended an amazing conference for bloggers sponsored by Collective Bias, a network that helps influencers just like little ol’ me work with big name brands on fun campaigns. I went to the conference in Atlanta last year
, and it was such a good experience I couldn’t wait to go again. You may remember that I entered a contest a little while back
, which I won (thank you Collective Bias!), and thus, my trip to Chicago was born.
I thoroughly loved every second of my trip.[more ...]
I was recently given the opportunity to test and review the Sony 5000 mAh Wireless Portable Charger
on behalf of Verizon Wireless. Wireless charging is the future of charging technology, and I was happy to oblige them in their request. With all of the travel our family does during the summer, it is impossible for my devices to stay fully charged at all times. If you find yourself looking for an outlet everywhere you go, you might consider giving a portable charger a try on your next vacation.
My initial thoughts upon receiving my test device were a mix of excitement and confusion.[more ...]
