As I was planning my four year old's birthday party this year, I came to a realization. I have become "that mom." The mom who throws the "crazy" birthday parties. No, I don't mean THAT mom who rents a...
Lauren Mancke had me singing the Flintstones last night. And that was just the beginning. A scroll through her Instagram was a stroll down memory lane. I believe I actually shrieked when I came upon Laverne and Shirley. How...
When we moved to Columbia last year I was stunned by the amount of mosquitoes here. Even trips from our door to the car would lead to multiple bites if we didn't have repellent on. Since we are currently...
Growing up, it was just my mother and me. So as a mother of one girl and two boys, I enjoy having some girl time with my daughter. (Also … because you know ... boys are gross!) My daughter...
If you have kids, you have probably heard all about fidget spinners. Your kids may be begging you to search the stores for them, they might be trading them with friends, or they might be driving you crazy with...
I remember as a little girl my mom would cover our kitchen table with the latest edition of The State newspaper. She would line up all of our coffee mugs and drop colored tablets in them with vinegar and...

In general, I can't say that Valentine's Day is a big deal at our house. Between deployments, rough pregnancies, and crazy work schedules, my husband and I don't have any extra special memories of February 14. That said, I absolutely...
Pinterest is great for a lot of things.  Recipe ideas and meal planning, cute photos and inspirational quotes, and make-up tips paired with unrealistic fashion advice. Its addictive and fun. But you know what is equally fun? Busting a gut checking out...
Christmas is just around the corner. That means it's time to think about what gifts you'll be giving this holiday season. I don't know about you, but every year it seems like I end up spending more and more money...
I have to admit, I'm a little fanatical about Halloween. It's my favorite holiday (well ... it may tie with Christmas). It's a time when the dark, whimsical, and silly all blend together to create a perfect collaboration of enjoyment. There...
My invitation came via social media. An out of town friend posted this article and I was intrigued. Intrigued, as in, this sounds cool, I'll share it on my facebook page. Almost immediately that notification ding came through and a local...
