Driveshop To The Rescue with the New 2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature Edition #DriveMazda

Disclosure: Thanks to Drive Shop for giving me the opportunity to drive the 2017 Mazda CX-9 for 7 days.  No compensation was exchanged. Opinions expressed here are always my own. I have a confession to make..... I have a love/hate relationship with my current vehicle. I love that I don't have any payments to make every month since I've had it for over 9 years and I love that my husband is able to fix almost anything that is wrong with the car. But.....I hate the fact that it's an older … [Read more...]

20 Things I Wish I did on the Disney Wonder. #Disneysmmc

Disclosure: My family and I were invited to take part in the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration conference at Disney World and on the Disney Wonder cruise ship.

{Review} Road Trippin’ in the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander GT S-AWC #DriveShop #DriveMitsubishi

Disclaimer: Thanks to Drive Shop and Mitsubishi, I was given the opportunity to test drive the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander for seven days. All opinions are 100% my own. Every time I get a vehicle loaned from Drive Shop, I make it a point to go somewhere miles away so that I can get a good feel for the way the vehicle drives and handles on the road. So that's exactly what I did; I took a small road trip with my youngest to New Jersey to visit my sister for the weekend. I was beyond grateful … [Read more...]

We can chat, crack jokes, listen to music and even play games. A few weekends ago, my family and I packed up the Mazda CX-3 and took off to Lancaster, Pennsylvania for a fun 80's themed … [Read more...]

Weekend Getaway to Hershey Park in the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 SE #DriveShop #DriveMitsubishi

Disclaimer: Thanks to Drive Shop and Mitsubishi, I was given the opportunity to test drive the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 SE for one full week. All opinions are 100% my own. No monetary compensation was received. I'm accustomed to driving an SUV since I've owned a Kia Sorento for nine years so I wasn't quite excited about driving around in a Mitsubishi Mirage for a week.  Although I was definitely grateful to Drive Shop for providing the Mirage for our Hershey Park road trip, I really … [Read more...]

Back-To-School Shopping with the 2016 Mazda CX-9 Signature AWD @MazdaUSA #DriveMazda #DriveShop

Disclaimer: Thanks to Drive Shop and Mazda, I was given the opportunity to test drive the 2016 Mazda CX-9 for one whole week. All opinions are 100% my own. I dread back-to-school shopping every year like the plague! The running around, trying to score deals, comparing prices  and the crowds are not my thing at all. Heck - walking though the mall is not my thing neither but it's inevitable. It's something I must do.  I don't want my kids going back to school with nothing. What kind of mother … [Read more...]

Ramblings: My Weekend in a Nutshell ~ July 4th

Hey everyone! How was your 4th of July? I hope you all had a wonderful 4th! As for me, my weekend was great. I spent it with my lovely family. The best part was that it was low-key and without a schedule. I also cleaned, I cooked many meals and I baked a cake. Which also means I ate a lot -- more than I would like to admit. I did do a few squats here and there but it's nothing like doing the squat challenge - which I've got to start again. I also did the treadmill. I probably burned … [Read more...]
