Throw Back Thursday: Halloween Edition #tbt #Halloween

Does anyone post #tbt on their blogs nowadays? I haven't noticed any. I usually see them on Instagram but I decided to post it on the ol' blog since I rarely post personal stuff anymore (that will change!). As I was looking thru old photos, I found several photos I took from my mom's house that I had planned to scan onto my computer. Here's what I found: This is me as Wonder Woman. I was in first grade. Wonder Woman was my idol at the time so naturally I thought I was bad! I remember when … [Read more...]

Let’s Talk About Date Night

Ahhh Date night -- It's a wonderful thing between two people or sometimes more. It's a time where you can just hang out, have a few drinks, eat and relax. It's especially wonderful when you can talk to your spouse without any interruptions from the kids and just talk about ANYTHING on date night. THAT is our dilemma. But isn't that the main reason couples go on date night anyway? To be alone as husband and wife. To listen to each other as a lover and friend? To remind one another that … [Read more...]

P&G Family Movie Night: “Who is Simon Miller?” Premieres August 6, 2011

P&G and Walmart have partnered together to create movies that families can watch together. As a mom of 3, it's often difficult to watch a movie that is age-appropriate for everyone, including my 6-year-old. There are times where we have to stop the movie right smack in the middle because of what was said or what they showed on the screen. Watching movies that are appropriate for the whole family always get a 2 thumbs up from me. "Who is Simon Miller?" is one of them. I was fortunate … [Read more...]

Changes For The #DisneySMMoms Conference

Next week, I will be in Orlando for my second blog conference, the Disney Social Media Moms Conference.  I'll be in Orlando for 4 days and I'm so excited to go.  Since I started blogging, I have only been to one conference which is BlogHer 10' and it was awesome.

Unfortunately things have changed since my last post about the conference. … [Read more...]

Ramblings: Do You Believe in Ghosts?

With Halloween just around the corner, there's tons of shows and movies on TV about ghosts, goblins and teen slashers.  But to some, ghosts are not only on the big screen. There are also tons of shows about "real" ghosts like Ghost Hunters on SyFy, The Haunted on Animal Planet, Paranormal State on A&E and many more. I was once a skeptic when it came to ghosts until I met my hubby (boyfriend back then). Although I never encountered spirits or ghosts, the stories he told would make my … [Read more...]
