Breakfast Nook Upgrade with Rooms To Go

Breakfast Nook Upgrade with Rooms To Go

Special thanks to Rooms To Go for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own. When you become a parent, you get all kinds of unsolicited “warnings”. Say goodbye to sleep! Your kid will only eat chicken nuggets from now on! Potty training is harder than you think! But no one warns you that your living space will no longer be your own. From the moment we brought my daughter home from the hospital four years ago, she has been the head of our roost. It didn’t matter how much I resisted, toys infiltrated and slowly overtook my house like …

That is why I …

The Resolution Fish Swap

The Resolution Fish Swap

We are almost two weeks into the new year and resolutions are already beginning to slip. Gym visits are down, abstaining from sweets is no longer a great idea, and overall morale is starting to decline. And the question remains… is it possible to keep a new year’s resolution?! With the help of Gorton’s Seafood, I am going to let you in on my secret to promises kept: the resolution fish swap! The problem with most resolutions are that they are practically unobtainable.

Holiday Hack - Champagne Bucket Gift Basket with TUL Note-taking System from Office Depot

Holiday Hack: Champagne Bucket Gift Basket with TUL Note-Taking System

Office Depot sponsored this post, but all opinions are my own. The holidays are here! As much as I want to cozy up with a hot cocoa by the fire, this is actually a time to hustle. Between wrapping up my photography business’s year-end projects to shopping for family and friends, it feels a bit like a mad dash to the finish line. Add to that my daughter’s holiday recitals, my husband’s work parties, and relatives flying from out of state, there is no room for error. That is why I am making Office Depot my one-stop-shop for all my …

LG Dishwasher with QuadWash & TrueSteam

Ultimate Holiday Gift: LG Dishwasher with QuadWash & TrueSteam

Thank you LG for sponsoring this post. Before I had a family, I envisioned leisurely holidays sitting by the fire, drinking hot cocoa and reminiscing about the good times. Now that I have a family of my own, the reality is quite a different picture… 99% of my holidays are spent doing the dishes! By the time I have washed and dried the festive lunch plates, it’s time to whip out utensils for the night’s holiday dinner. The cycle never ends! That is until a hero recently waltzed into my life, like a very clean, well-behaved bull in a spotless …

Early Black Friday Steal: Columbia Bedding at Kohl’s

This post is sponsored by Kohl’s, but all opinions are entirely my own. The turkey has not even been taken out to thaw yet, but you are already in full holiday shopping mode. Same, friend, same. By this time of November, I am usually completely done with all my Christmas shopping. But I still have one person left on the list to buy for… the ever elusive husband species. He’s quiet, he’s discerning, and he insists that he does not need anything. Ugh! Why do they always do that?! Luckily for me, Black Friday has come early to Kohl’s and …

You know, that blank spot in your head when you need to write up a dinner menu. Not only do you need to come up wth an entree, sides, and dessert, you also have to think of appetizers and light bites. I will admit, I occasionally find myself staring vacantly down a grocery aisle with no idea where to start. That’s where today’s recipe pairing comes to the rescue! I am pairing Blue Diamond …
