Winter Traveling Tips With Amy Tara Koch

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of speaking with Amy Tara Koch, a former trend reporter for NBC and author of the popular pregnancy style book – Bump It Up: Transform Your Pregnancy into the Ultimate Style Statement about traveling tips in the Winter months. If you've seen my rants on Twitter complaining about the snow and this wickedly cold weather, than you  already know that I do not like Winter. So normally, I do not travel anywhere in the winter months because I'm not a fan of the … [Read more...]

Getting Healthier for 2011 (& A Twitter Party!)

I have a confession -- I make a few New Years resolutions every year without fail and it always consists of losing weight (particularly losing 20 pounds). Always. This year is different.  I did not make not one New Years resolutions. Why? I never follow through.  Typically after a few weeks of dieting and exercising, I usually fall off the wagon and I'm back to my usual habits of eating "whatever" and not working out as planned.  This year I decided to take charge of my well-being … [Read more...]

{Update} Thankful for Disney Social Media Moms Celebration in 2011 #DisneySMMoms

(This is an update from this post from last week.) After reading so many heartbreaking posts about not being chosen for the 2011 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration in Disney World and how Disney was not fair with the selection process,  I decided to continue my story. I was already mentally preparing myself for the news that lots of other bloggers were receiving so I decided not to check my emails so obsessively like I've been for the past 24 hours.  Reason being -- I had not received … [Read more...]

The Circle of Death That Made Me Want to Vomit (#DisneySMMoms)

Yesterday was a HUGE day in the blogosphere, especially if you've been following the #DisneySMMoms hashtag (Disney Social Media Moms) and are a Disney freak like I am.  For months, hundreds or maybe even thousands of mom bloggers have been waiting for yesterday, specifically the time of day --2pm EST.  We were ready with all of our information, personal and blog related, ready with our credit cards in hand and waiting to GET IN the conference of the year. Just in case you're not a blogger and … [Read more...]

Last Night, I Went to Jail….during a party.

Made you look! Just kidding. I'm talking about Twitter Jail. ;) If you unfamiliar with Twitter jail, let me explain.  It happens when you go over your allotted tweets for the hour or the day. For instance, the amount of tweets you're allowed are 100 tweets per hour/1,000 tweets per day.  If you go over those tweets, you can no longer tweet until an hour or so later.  During a Twitter party, that can really suck which is why I decided to create another Twitter handle. Last night was a … [Read more...]

I Won An iPad!

Ha! my dreams. Okay, seriously, I had a dream that I won an iPad last night. I woke up this morning so happy but than I realize it was just a dream. Boo hoo! Ever since its debut, I've been dreaming about owning an iPad. I've heard some people say it's just an iPod Touch but bigger. Well of course it is but it's much better! The screen is humongous and it's just the right size to view movies, which I love to do. Can you tell I want one really bad? Hopefully I get a chance to … [Read more...]

Yes! My Prayers Have Been Answered.

Image: graur codrin / Finally! My prayers have been answered.  Thank you Lord! I tweeted a few weeks ago that I had to get a fine-needle biopsy because of an abnormal ultrasound (results showed spots of calcium deposits) of my thyroid.

THANK YOU ALL WHO REPLIED!! You know who … [Read more...]

Reboost With A New Boost Mobile

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Boost Mobile. All opinions are 100% mine. Since my son is in high school and hasn't had a phone yet, we're looking into different plans that would work for him and for our budget.  I don't want to put him in our monthly plan because that would be too expensive and I don't want to commit to it for 2 years. Instead, we're looking into pre-paid plans. The plan that caught my eye was the Boost Mobile.  It has everything a high school kid … [Read more...]
