Because I Like It When My Car Smells Good

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of PERK. All opinions are 100% mine. I have had my Jeep for a very long time. My daughter is ten now and I brought her home from the hospital in it. (Jeeps are very bumpy when you're bringing a newborn home for the first time, by the way.) But one of the most important things to me when it comes to my car is that it smells good. I hate when I get in someone's car and it stinks. It's the reason I drive everywhere myself-- I can't handle it! BUT-- … [Read More...]

We Went Totally Dark For Dinner!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dixie for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Well, last week I told you guys about how my family was going #DarkForDinner.

30 Christmas in July Party Ideas

Christmas in July is NOT for the faint of heart. It's not subtle, it's not classy, this is not the time to break out the good China and join hands around the piano. No. Christmas in July is all about celebrating Santa and snow and all things winter at a time when it might otherwise seem impossible to get cool. And that's what it is. Christmas in July is cool. I might be partial on account my birthday is July 25th and my favorite way to celebrate is by having Christmas in July parties, but you'll … [Read More...]

So, we decided to join the Dark For Dinner movement and sit down for a meal with no electronics. This is a big deal. My family is agreeing to go totally … [Read More...]
