Coming of Age in the 90’s #StarTrek #StreamTeam

I looked up to her, Catherine Janeway.  I was 15 when we first met.  I was a girl spinning in a world of teenage hormones. I was angry, hyper, always going somewhere and in dire need of direction.  My boyfriend through my early teens actually had a lot to do with helping me become nerdy girl I am.  And in 1995, when Star Trek Voyager first aired, I remember that I made a point to sit down and watch it...THIS was going to be MY SHOW. And was it … [Read more...]

The Reveal #LoveLowes

By Ally Banks Well Friday nights are back to normal around here.  No more late night runs to Lowe's, but there have been a few Saturday afternoon stops.  “ Let me just take one final peek” & “ I’ll just run into the garden center”  are words I've said to my husband quite a few times in these last few weeks.  The good news is, the project is complete and we have a beautiful backyard to kick back and enjoy at the end  of the … [Read more...]

NEW Arm & Hammer™ Laundry Rewards Program

An empty laundry basket. It's like heaven opens up and sings when you get to the bottom, isn't it? Everything clean, pressed and put away.  It's such a rewarding feeling. As rewarding as it is, laundry has always been a chore I struggle with. I get to the point of it all being folded, then I walk away.  Rarely does the laundry every actually all get put away. As I sit her writing this there are three loads of folded laundry in a basket … [Read more...]

Ok.  I'm gonna come right out and say it.  I have been waiting for this movie FOREVER.

Either way. It's Disney... It's Dory... and I … [Read more...]

Project Sleep {Enter to Win a New Mattress}

It wasn’t when my babies were young. That was not my most sleep-deprived time.  Though when I ask, this is the time that most women will refer to…the time when they were the most exhausted. For some reason, be it hormones, the euphoria or that new baby smell, I was able to get through that time of my life relatively smooth. My most sleep-deprived time came when I changed jobs. I went from a 14-year career at a business that had me starting at 11 … [Read more...]

Take it Outside!! Brothers. #StreamTeam

I thought I was doing everything right.  I thought the gap would be a great thing.  I figured with five years between them my children would get along perfectly.  Older brother being a mentor to the little guy.  Little man looking up to big bro like he's his hero. Apparently I was lost in some sort of dream land, because that is NOT what I ended up with. Instead I have two children who are one hundred per cent devoted to driving each other … [Read more...]

Choosing Dining Room Chairs That Bring Creativity To The Table

Engaging children (teenagers especially) in dinner conversation isn't easy. Factor in a not-so-cozy dining area and eating in shifts, and it’s nearly mission impossible (unless you are Tom Cruise of course). Moreover, it’s an undeniable fact that due to advancements and the increased use of technology, today's society is putting less emphasis on traditional family values and the importance of parent-child ties, hence why we all end up spending … [Read more...]
