Tips on Putting Out Your Cigarette for Good

Tips on helping you quite or cut down on smoking.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Aqua-tine™.  I was compensated for this post but all thoughts and opinions are my own. #WeLoveSmokers 17 years ago I married a smoker.

Wrap Up Your Summer with Main Events Summer FUNpass

Main Events Summer Funpass

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Main Event, all opinions are my own.  Right before school started, I wanted to give my girls one last fun filled day before they headed back to the grind. I love creating memories with my girls and I knew that taking them bowling would create the best memories, so we headed to Main Event's San Antonio North for some fun bowling and lots of fun and exciting video games.  This was my girl's first time to visit Main Event. When they entered through the sliding glass doors they were in complete awe and to be honest, I was too! This was my first time to visit the Main Event's San Antonio North location and I was impressed with the amount of space, the openness of it and how clean it was. After a mini look … [Read more...]

Show Your Lalaloopsy Love This Christmas

This post contains affiliate links to make your shopping easier. Last year I wrote a post that told of my girl's love for Lalaloopsy Dolls and talked about how each Christmas they are gifted one from Santa Claus.

Another great thing that I love about these dolls is that there are so many different toy options from big Lalaloopsy dolls to mini dolls to softer dolls. I love them all and love to see the faces of my girls when they see which one Santa left for them. Since there are so many dolls I wanted to compile a list of some of my kid's favorites so that maybe you can show your Lalaloopsy love this … [Read more...]
