This post was brought to you by the State Fair of Texas. All opinions are mine.
I had never been to the great State Fair of Texas, but being in the Dallas area the past few years, I knew it was a BIG deal! We were given tickets to experience it for ourselves, and I think we chose the best day to go. It was Thursday and the weather was absolutely perfect. It wasn't too busy, but there were [...]

I participated in this #ShareWhatsGood campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Welch's. I received product samples to facilitate my review, and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
With the hectic schedules that demand so much time for families these days, we all need to stop and take a breather and just enjoy the family that we love. I believe that you're only as busy as you choose to be, but sometimes we get in over our heads and are running around like crazy. Here's [...]

This V8 V-Fusion® Refreshers post is brought to you by V8. We received free product and compensation in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine.
The men in my life are big juice drinkers. Daddy, the Captain, and D all love to drink juice, in all flavors. It's hard to find a juice they all love that doesn't contain pure junk and is actually good for you, but I really think we've found it with the new V8 V-Fusion® Refreshers.

This post was written by me on behalf of iT'Z. All opinions are mine. We received a free family fun pack in exchange for this post.
A few weeks ago, we moved the boys in the same room together, to prepare for the new baby coming soon. It was an adjustment, but now they are doing great. We needed a little reward for the boys for staying in their room, going to sleep (relatively) on time, and not waking each [...]

It has really been a busy summer for our family! Some days move slowly, and some are gone before we even realized it was a new day! Some days are filled with apparent blessings and some days are just so rotten that you have to find the humor in them! :)
We just got back from my old hometown, visiting my family and attending the funeral of my 96 year old grandmother. She had a very full life and left a legacy of love and faithfulness to God, that of which I'm very proud and [...]

This family playdates post was brought to you by Merck Consumer Care and SheSpeaks. All opinions are mine.
I'm admittedly not a huge fan of summer, but this summer has been different. The boys are both at an age (four and two) where getting outdoors with them is enjoyable, even though I am pregnant! We love heading outdoors and doing things together as a family. Our top five favorite things to do include:
1. Playing in the water. We have a small, inflatable pool in the backyard, but it does the trick. The [...]

This Butt Kicking Woman post brought to you by the sponsor. All opinions are 100% mine.
If you don't know by now, we think Mark Gungor is an awesome speaker. We have enjoyed his "Laugh Your Way To A Better Marriage" DVDs and also heard him speak live. He is funny, enjoyable to listen to, and brings a depth of knowledge that just makes sense. Seriously, I promise you will be sitting there thinking "that's pretty obvious….why didn't I think of that?" or "why didn't anyone tell me this stuff before?" [...]

This post about wisdom from mothers was brought to you by Nestlé® Pure Life®. All opinions are mine.
I have been so blessed with older women in my life to guide me along the way. My mother, two grandmothers, lovely ladies from church, as well as women in my husband's family. I think it's essential for young girls and women to have those kind of women to look up to and gain wisdom from. A few pieces of wisdom that [...]

Daddy, Captain Fussybuckets, D, and I are happy to announce that Baby #3 is due in November! The boys are excited, as are we, to add to our family. Stay tuned for more info on Baby #3! (And if you have any brilliant suggestions as what we should call Baby D now, let me know! He's not the Baby anymore!)
