This year seems like I am more behind than ever. Maybe because it does not feel like Christmas yet. Whatever the reason is I still need to shop for those last-minute gifts and the perfect place to do so is at Sears. They have everything I need for everyone on my list. And the best part is that it is all located under one roof so there is no need to have to go store to store. Talk about convenient! If you are like me this year and need some last-minute gifts there is no need to panic. I recently…

This is a sponsored post with CROSS Pens. All opinions are my own. “Everyone Needs Deadlines” – Walt Disney My long story shorts starts back about 3 years ago when I was diagnosed that I have ADD. I honestly think I have had it all my life but really did not think I had it or basically was in denial. It got so bad that I had to go and see a doctor. When he asked me a series of questions and everyone was a “Yes”,  I held my head in shame when he told me that I have ADD.…

This is a sponsored post by Old Navy. All opinions are my own. It has become a tradition every year in our family to unwrap new pajamas the day before Christmas. Everyone would put them on before bed. We do this so we can have cozy comfort when we wake up on Christmas Day and open gifts. Then, of course, we end up lounging around in our new pajamas all day long playing with the toys we got. While I love to give pajamas to my immediate family, I also love to give the gift of cozy comfort to almost…

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of Single Edition Media. All opinion are my own. Any type of shortcut in life is helpful as a busy mom especially in the kitchen. When I received my Fall BabbleBoxx at my doorstep I got so excited. It was filled with full size products that were helpful in the kitchen along with snacks to eat. These tools and snacks are what I believe to be a must-have in the kitchen for fall. Movie night would not be complete without some sweet and salty Indiana Popcorn. These individual bags are great for each family…

I don’t know how it happened but in a blink of an eye 2 of my kids became teenagers. To me they are still just babies but I have to take a step back sometimes and let them grow up and learn on their own even if I don’t want to. Yoplait Go Big fuels the amazing in amazing teens and is challenging parents to tell their teens how amazing they are. My 2 teens are amazing in every way but they never want to hear the sappy stuff from mom so instead I decided to write them a letter…

With back to school season here, it’s time for an annual eye exam for the kids. Getting an eye exam is so important not only so they can see but for their health. My kids and I recently visited Visionworks for our eye exams before school starts and I cannot rave how much I love our local Visionworks. Not only is it easy to get an appointment in but the staff is so friendly and most glasses can be ready the same day. At first we started with the eye exam that took about 20-30 minutes to find out if…
