Small Shop Wednesday: Chalk Full of Design

This week’s Small Shop Wednesday features a brand that we have loved for a few years! Chalk Full of Design is a small shop that specializes in chalkboards for kids! The first chalkboard we ever got was last Valentine’s Day and said “I love you because ______!” It was so fun to fill in the blanks and share why we love each other. Now that B is starting school, I’ve been on the lookout for a First Day of School chalkboard!…

Back-To-School: Small Shop Must-Haves

Well, it’s almost that time. It seems like just yesterday that I gave birth to my oldest child and now she’s starting preschool! She is SO excited and tells anyone who will listen that she’s starting “high school” (and no, I’m not correcting her because it’s cute as heck)! As the start of the school year approaches, we have been getting everything ready for her first day of school. I have been so lucky to work with some incredible small…

Gorgeous Curls In Less Than 10 Minutes

This post in sponsored by Sephora inside JCPenney, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. What’s your go-to hairstyle? A messy bun? Natural? My go-to hairstyle is curled hair. It used to take me 30 minutes to curl my hair, so I rarely even attempted it. Especially with kids, it’s too hard to try anything on my hair that takes more than fifteen minutes. Until I discovered dry shampoo and conditioner. Now I curl my hair every single day!…

FAMILY FUN: Bannor Toys’ Wooden Board Game

Who loves board games? I grew up playing board games all the time, it was our favorite family past-time. So many nights spent eating chips and salsa and playing monopoly or life. Now that I have a family of my own, my husband and I regularly play games but the kids can rarely partake because we haven’t been able to find games they really like. For example, the pieface incident. But Bannor Toys sent us one of their newest releases…

Mom Must-Have: Lysol Laundry Sanitizer

This post is sponsored by Lysol. Does your child have a blanket that they won’t let go of? You know the one… the blanket that goes wherever your child goes: to the park, to the grocery store, to the restaurant, in the car. The blanket that MUST not be forgotten, unless you want to chance a toddler melt down in the middle of the mall. The blanket that gets dragged on the cement and through the dirt. The blanket that…

The Anniversary Gift She *Actually* Wants

In six days, my husband and I are celebrating our wedding anniversary and I am so excited! Every year, we celebrate by going on a dinner date and exchanging a gift. It’s always fun to get gifts (especially if you’re like me and it’s your love language!) and spend time alone as a couple. Being married and having three kids is no easy feat. There are so many challenges, hard days and compromises that go into a marriage – but…
