“Thanks to The Coca-Cola Company for providing compensation for this blog post. All opinions expressed are my own.”

Family dinners at the dinner table are important to me. Growing up, my parents always tried to make sure we all made time to sit down and enjoy a meal together. It allowed use time to chat and be together in one place, no matter how busy we were. Now with three kids and a husband, I try to do the same thing.

Happy (late) Friday! I am writting this a lot later than I hoped to, but I wanted to get it up since I haven’t had much time to do one in a few weeks. Things have been extra hectic and it seems like every Friday this month has not gone as planned. I am holding my head up high though, as we end the month and get ready for a big September.

Our Family’s Special Bond with our Dog, Ellie

August 29, 2014 No Comments

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of K9 Advantix® II. The opinions and text are all mine.

For the majority of my life, I have always had a dog by my side. One that is not only a pet, but also a member of the family. I will never forget my first dog, as a kid, Corki. I shared a great bond with her for well over twelve years. She taught me that the connection between an owner and their dog is extremely special.

Who’s excited it’s Friday?

I am just glad this week is about over. It was slightly derailed (I’ll get to that at the end of the post) early on, making it a tough week. Since last Friday, most the memorable moments happened over the weekend into Monday.

Here’s a look back at this week’s happenings (mainly revolving around the little ones, again):
