My Current Top 5 TV Shows & The Social Network for TV: Beamly

April 17, 2014 No Comments

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Beamly. The opinions and text are all mine.

The last time I checked, our DVR was over 50% full and includes countless episodes of shows I will probably never get around to watching. On a typical day, it may be the late evening before I get a chance to actually sit down and enjoy a good show. Sometimes I only have time to run a show in the background as I work on the computer or clean the kitchen.

December 10, 2013 2 Comments

This post about managing holiday stress and Walgreens holiday solutions is part of a sponsored post for a Collective Bias® #HappyAllTheWay #cbias campaign. All opinions expressed are my own.

Every day, normal days, are chaotic and are accompanied with long ‘to-do’ lists. Then comes December, where the lists triple in length and there seems to be no time sleep or finish everything. For me, it gets stressful and sometimes I just have to remind myself the take a break and indulge in some premium snacks.

Slowing Down to Connect with Family over Coffee and Brunch

November 5, 2013 7 Comments

I am sharing this post about slowing down and connecting with family over coffee as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®.  All opinions are my own. 

I am sure I am not the only one who always feels rushed. No matter what I have going on, it seems like I have 100 other things I also need to be doing so I’m trying do it all at once, quickly. At least once a week, I need to remember to slow down, relax, and enjoy time with loved ones.

In in effort to spread awareness about the Champions for Kids #SIMPLEGiving program and teaching kids to donate, I created this sponsored post for Collective Bias® and their client. All opinions expressed are my own. 

My two oldest sons, ages 3 and 4, are evolving into amazing little men. They are always curious, asking questions, and eager to learn about new things. With the holiday season approaching, I have been looking for ways to teach them about donating and giving back to our community.

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

At the beginning of the summer, we had a ton of ideas for a family pet. However, we had a hard time choosing the right one. The boys wanted a puppy or kitten. I wanted something small that the boys could play with. Then one day, things fell in place and we ended up with a new member of the family.
