Music has always played a big part in how I am inspired. I can’t sing and I can’t play instruments, so I have to share that inspiration in a way that doesn’t involve music. That’s why I am so excited about my new Album Cover Makeup series! Every month, I will have a new music album that has inspired me in some way or has somehow shaped who I am. I can’t even put to words how excited I am for this series! It is my passion project for the year. I know that it isn’t something that most of you are as passionate about as I am, but I hope that you can get excited to see what albums are featured and what crazy things I come up with every month!

Keeping Watch

Thanks to Panasonic for sponsoring today’s post. All opinions are my own.

I know I have spoken about this in the past, but I suffer from anxiety. (I always have!) There are several things that I get anxious about, but the major one is keeping my home safe. For example, I typically check all of my doors 2-3 times before going to bed.

To relieve my anxiety about keeping my home as safe as possible, I received the Panasonic HomeHawk Monitoring System door so that I can keep watch over my home 24/7.

Bonus: I can check to make sure that my packages are safely delivered!

Loose waves are always in style! It’s a hairstyle that has been around for generations and they aren’t going anywhere soon! The problem is that many women don’t know how to create perfect loose waves. They are so easy to do! You just need the right tools to do it!

Christmas Matching Game Printable

Christmas classroom parties and Christmas break are right around the corner! There is going to be a lot of time to keep your kids entertained, before they have their Christmas goodies. When I was little, my mom made a matching game out of Halloween monsters and I loved it! We played it in my classroom as a traditional memory game, but when I was home I would play it and mix and match the parts of the monsters to make silly characters. I really wanted to make a version of this game for Christmas! So I created this Christmas memory matching game that can also be used as a Christmas character mix and match activity too!

Motherhood Isn’t Always Squeaky Clean

Tracking Pixel
If you are a parent, you have probably had more moments than you can count where you have thought to yourself, “Nobody told me that this part was going to be so hard!” I find that thought sneaking into my mind more often than I care to admit! Parenting is hard. No matter what phase of life you are in, there are challenges that parents face with their children. My kids are both still young, so most of our trials include diapers, lack of sleep, homework, housework, and tantrums. Parenthood isn’t always that squeaky clean fantasy that you had when your first child was still in the womb! That is why I am excited to partner with Baby Dove. They understand that motherhood isn’t always squeaky clean and they encourage parents to embrace life’s real moments!

Trying to do laundry with a toddler is a lot like trying to wash dishes with ketchup, instead of dish soap. It is a little pointless! While I am folding, she is unfolding! It is a constant game of [Read more…]
