Teach Your Kids Playground Etiquette

This post contains affiliate links. Please see full disclosure here. As a mom with 6 kids, I know that kids, especially girls, can be mean to their peers.

I've been raising kids for over 20 years and from my experience, most kids are genuinely amazing. They want to have friends, … [Read more...]

How to Avoid Weight Gain During a Cruise

This post contains affiliate links. Please see full disclosure here. Last year the House of Faucis went on our first cruise. Our family had the most amazing time on the Royal Caribbean cruise. Not only did we create amazing and unforgettable memories but we relaxed like we've never relaxed before. In addition to relaxing, we ate! We ate 3 square meals a day, along with cookies before bed and we washed our food down with soda and a variety of umbrella drinks. With that said, it was no surprise that when we go home, we had gained a lot of weight.

Most of us can agree that when we are on vacation, … [Read more...]

With the new year, I decided to spend this year and hopefully the rest that follows, focusing on a healthier lifestyle.

All opinions are mine alone. #MembersMarkDetergent #CollectiveBias I am a proud mom of twin boys that are in the United States Navy. They have been away from home for over 7 years going to school, traveling the world, and experiencing life. Sadly, they have always been deployed far away from home.

That is why, as their mom, I made sure to visit Sam's Club and purchase Member's Mark®Ultimate Clean Detergent so that I could create the perfect care package for my … [Read more...]
