A big thanks to Mochu Pop for starting this conversation!   I'm always looking for new apps to hold Jack and Gracie's attention.

Work From Home: Start Your Own Blog


    I have a lot of Facebook friends and friends in real life who are constantly asking me how they can do what I do.

Bambo Nature Disposable Diapers are Non-Toxic and Eco-Friendly!


I received products to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.   Over the past 18 years, I’ve had the chance to try just about every diaper that is out there… disposable and cloth diapers. I didn’t know about cloth diapers with my older three kids and then used cloth diapers with Gracie. I only cloth diapered Gracie for the cost reasons. When I had Jack, I started cloth diapering, again to save money but also because over the years, I learned more about hazardous chemicals and … [Continue reading]

Kids in the Kitchen #MakeItMango


    Last week I took my three daughters to The Chopping Block in Chicago for a “Kids in the Kitchen” cooking class with the National Mango Board. We learned how to cook with mangos, which was fun and super tasty, but we also learned a lot more about mangos which was awesome because we don’t buy fresh mangos. We buy frozen mangos for our smoothies in the morning. I never even knew how to choose a fresh, ripe mango. But now I do! We learned that there are 6 varieties of mangos which … [Continue reading]

Help Increase Access to Fruits and Veggies with Community Gardens #GoLocalGrants


This post is brought to you by the Aetna Foundation and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.   Did you know that 49 million Americans, including 15.8 million children living in food insecure households and according to the CDC 9 in 10 children don’t eat enough vegetables. This makes me sad. It’s sad that there are so many communities throughout the U.S. that do not have the resources to have fresh fruits and veggies. It’s also hard to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables if you are … [Continue reading]
