On Self-Esteem & Body After Baby (Plus Yummie Tummie Giveaway)

When I was younger, I cursed my too-skinny body. I was teased for my “chicken legs” and wanted nothing more than curves. Then I finally got them, and Sir Mixalot had to go & ruin that for me, too. Thank goodness for the grunge phase—it was easy to hide my 36x24x36 in baggy, flannel shirts. […]

Digital Detox: AKA Quality Time (Plus Mastermind Games Giveaway)

Why won’t you brush your teeth? (plus Crest Pro-Health For Me giveaway)

I have the same fight every day (EVERY DAY) with the princess. I struggle to wake her up for school, we move on to a discussion on healthy breakfast and then we proceed to appropriate school clothes. These are the least of our struggles in the morning, our big fight is always about personal hygiene. […]
