Is this thing still on?

So I disappeared.


Sometimes when you get everything you've spent years working for you discover that it is even more work. You may also feel like you're missing something that you thought you'd have.

When I started this blog, it was an attempt at a few things. The first was generating some sort of income. I wasn't frugal because it was trendy, I was in survival mode. I also felt like others may be in the same boat and could use some of my ideas. I blogged while school and applying to become a teacher and wanted a place to share some ideas. Balance that all with being a mom, and I felt like I had something to offer.


Now I feel like my budget is completely out of control, I have no idea what I plan eat on any given day, and the adorable toddlers who had play dates are growing up so fast that I can't keep up.

So I'm going back to my roots. Blogging helped me then and I'm hoping that it will help again.

Keep Momming.

“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Shire. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”

Raising a child at any age is challenging, and when it comes to mothers and daughters, the dynamic can be even more complex. What some may dismiss as “typical tween girl behavior” can sometimes be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention- Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.

That’s why I’m pleased to be joining Shire, CHADD and Holly Robinson Peete to announce the launch of keep momming, a new public service initiative geared towards the moms of tween girls to raise awareness of ADHD.

The campaign is anchored within a new digital hub,, where you’ll find tips, tools and other go-to resources for moms, including a checklist to help recognize the symptoms of ADHD – inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity – and then encourages moms to talk to their daughter’s doctor. Thekeep momming initiative can help moms learn about ADHD and provide ideas on how to spark a conversation and stay connected with their tween.

The New Year

2014 is almost here, and there are some amazing things to come in my future. I'm so happy to say that I was hired full time as a teacher in my county. I can't wait to get to work and do what I've worked so hard to do. Unfortunately, with this good comes the bad news that I am not going to be blogging anymore. I know that with 3 kids, 2 dogs, 1 husband, and a (more than) full time job I will not be able to do it all. Thank you for the years of comments, encouragement, and for following me on this journey. All the best to you and yours. <3 nbsp="" p="">

$10 Amazon Flash Giveaway.

I'm a Purex insider which means I get to win prizes for spreading the word about their new promotions. This time it benefits you!

I'm hosting a FLASH $10 Amazon Gift Card giveaway thanks to Purex!

Just enter below!

Soft Scrub Mold and Mildew- Review + FLASH Giveaway

I am a Purex Insider and was given the opportunity to try and review Soft Scrub Mold and Mildew for free! You'd think I wouldn't be so excited about cleaning- but anything that helps me get the bathroom clean is a good thing.

If you have a mold or mildew problem in your bathroom, Soft Scrub Mold and Mildew Gel will fix that. I used it in the bathroom and noticed a big difference on my toilet seat. I thought it was clean before, but it was able to get a layer of junk off of it (and I really try not think about that too much) and keep it clean. 

Since I meant to post this a long time ago- I want to get these coupons to a new owner so I will be hosting a giveaway that ends TOMORROW!
