Happy Friday! It is currently a cloudy, slightly gloomy day around here. A small thunderstorm is rolling in, but it is quite relaxing at the moment. A good way to end the week.

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):

Banana Boat – It’s Always in My Bag

June 11, 2014 No Comments

“I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Banana Boat® Sun Care. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”

We like to spend a lot of time outdoors and I feel responsible to protect my family’s skin. The sun can be brutal, especially if we are outside for long periods of time. To ensure their skin is protected, I turn to a variety of Banana Boat products. Which is why I am excited to announce that I am a Banana Boat Best Summer Ever Ambassador!

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.
