April 8, 2014

If you’re a regular reader, you know that a few months ago I decided to take back me. I needed to be healthier, work out more, and take some time for myself. How have I been doing? Well…let’s just say it’s a lot harder than I thought it would be. Drinking 64 oz of water daily is really difficult and up until about a week or so ago, I haven’t been awesome about the gym. I was sick a few times and well, yes I have all sorts of excuses. [...]

My City Monday: Elevation Burger

April 7, 2014
Elevation Burger, Brier Creek

How much do y’all know about grass-fed beef?  I have heard about it now and again, but to be honest, I just never had the time or energy to figure it out. Last week, Elevation Burger at Brier Creek invited me to come in and try their 100% USDA-Certified Organic, Grass-fed, Free-range beef burgers. Um, YUM! Seriously, it was one of the tastiest burgers I’ve had in a long time. Their menu is small – burgers, veggie burger, salad, a grilled cheese, french fries (made with olive oil) and shakes/malts.

Minnie Sweatshirt

Next week my family is flying to Anaheim, California for the Disney Social Media Moms Conference. I am beyond excited and have been slowly but surely making lists of all the things we need to take with us. One of the best things about this trip is planning what cute things the kids can wear. So when I found out that Disney had paired up with Kohl’s on a new line of kid’s wear, I was over the moon. We shop at Kohl’s a lot and have many, many items [...]

Disney Pirate Fairy Movie Review

We own several movies from the Disney Fairy franchise. Those are movies about Tinker Bell and her friends for those who have no idea what I’m talking about. As much I suggest them though, my son is never one to get on board. Until now. Yesterday, Disney’s newest  addition, The Pirate Fairy, launched via Blu Ray and Digital HD across the US. Official Synopsis: From the world of Peter Pan comes The Pirate Fairy, a swashbuckling new adventure about Zarina (voice of Christina Hendricks), a smart and ambitious dust-keeper fairy who’s captivated [...]

Why can’t I ever be all in?

March 27, 2014

I have all these ideas. They are just floating around in my head, waiting for me to grab on to one tightly and just run with it. But I never do. There’s just too much going on. I can’t focus. It’s an age old question that I’m positive all parents face, but it’s still frustrating nonetheless. Why can’t I just go all in on something? I like freelancing. I’m happy to be able to spend more time with my children and to still keep my toes in the working world. [...]
