Thank you to Walgreens for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own. It’s finally getting cold here, which means time for cider! And fall color drives! And sick kids (and adults)! Seriously, over the last week at school, a kid has gone down once a day. Sometimes they head home quietly, not feeling very well. […]
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about our military men and women. Yesterday was Veteran’s Day, and I was looking at all the pictures my friends and family were posting of their loved ones who so bravely served our country. Our own family has several veterans, including my grandfather. And believe it or not, I’m […]
I will never, ever get tired of autumn in Colorado. Ever. I try to drag everyone on at least one fall drive each year, which is met with varying levels of excitement. Okay, actually I’m the only excited one and everyone else rolls their eyes and the kids ask if they can bring along their […]

The kids are going to come home, do their homework, do some sort of Enriching Activity, do their chores, and go to bed on-time, pleasantly sleepy from a full day of good and productive work. And then as the year progresses, school and other things ramp […]
I do love my Book Club. Aside from giving me a fun night out with my posse (‘cuz that’s right. We mamas roll in posses, yo), Book Club also makes me read stuff I wouldn’t pick myself (not even lying to you — we read Jane Eyre and Rob Lowe’s “Stories I Only Tell My […]
I do crafts and activities with the kids all the time…but I just realized you all may not have met two important members of our family!
This is a sponsored post for Monster High through Womensforum.com. All opinions are mine. My daughters and I were recently offered a chance to get a sneak peek at a new movie, Monster High: Haunted.
