Mat Kearney: “Young Love” album review

I had the opportunity to listen to the new album by Mat Kearney called "Young Love."  I've been out of touch with the new music scene since having kids (bad excuse, I know!) so I had never heard of him.  But after listening to this album, I can honestly tell you, he's GOOD.   The first track "Hey Mama" is very contagious.  It's one of those feel good songs that gets stuck in your head, but you don't really care.  Totally addicting!     The [...]

Montagne Jeunesse masques review!


Do you like face masques? I have used a few, mostly when I was younger and childless, but they're good for a little at home pampering. I had the opportunity to try out three new masques from Montagne Jeunesse. And as soon as the package opened, Captain Fussybuckets decided he wanted to try, too! I was sent the Pore Cleansing Fruit Smoothie masque, the cucumber Anti-Stress Peel-Off masque, and the Warm Exfoliating Crystal masque with honey. I let the Captain pick which one we tried first, and he chose the Pore Cleansing Fruit Smoothie masque because it was [...]

Yes, I Love Being a SAHM

A lot of people have asked me questions like "don't you want to go back to work?"  "Don't you get TIRED of staying in the house all day with your kids?"  "Do you LIKE being a stay-at-home mom?" (SAHM)  Well, I'm going to attempt to answer those questions.   Let's start with "Don't you get TIRED of staying in the house all day with your kids?"  That's the thing.  I don't HAVE to stay in the house all day with my kids.  We go to Target, Walmart, and play in the backyard (which looks like a playground thanks to [...]

Keith Urban concert!

Last night Daddy and I had a "date night" while Grandma watched the boys.  We went to the American Airlines Center in Dallas (home of the Mavs!!) to see Keith Urban in concert and we had a blast!  We didn't take any camera besides Daddy's phone, so we didn't get any good pictures, but the show was amazing!!!   Keith performed old songs that I love, along with new songs that I love.  He didn't sing "Your Everything," which is one of his older, slow love songs that Daddy and I had played at our wedding.  I get it though, [...]
