Create the Perfect Care Package for Your Loved One

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.

Supplies Your Hamster Will Need

This post contains affiliate links. Please see full disclosure here. I've been a mom for a very long time and have allowed my kids to have a variety of different pets. From dogs to cats, to a pet fish to a goat, they've had a variety of animals and have left their dad and me to take care of them.

I have to admit, I never knew that a hamster could be so cute but would also need so much stuff! Supplies Your Hamster Will Need Before my daughter's hamster, Millie … [Read more...]

This post contains affiliate links. Please see full disclosure here. A few years ago I decided to stop making a list of New Year's Resolutions because they began to be monotonous, I would always forget that I made them and quite honestly when I made the list, I knew deep down that I would never do any of the resolutions on my list. I knew that I'd never stop cursing, I could never stop eating sweets and drinking soda and I could never have the patience of a saint, so I stopped making them. As the new year approached I started to feel guilty about not setting some sort of goal. I considered doing the Word of the Year, such as Energy or Patience but that sounded lame to me and also impossible. After I sat and pondered, I decided that I would … [Read more...]
