Nutritional Supplements for Healthy Hair

Shedding. It's something my lab and I have in common. I used to complain about the amount of dog hair I would find in my house and then I realized, I tend to shed more than the dog. I thought this was normal, until I started to see the difference in my hair. Over the past few years, the number of "flyaways" that I have had increased and in general, my hair didn't feel as healthy as it did in my 30s, So instead of dealing with it, I did some research and discovered Hairfinity.

Holiday Home Decorating Tips

Thank you to Bona for sponsoring today's post, Holiday Home Decorating Tips, and helping me make my hardwood floors shine! Three weeks ago, I did something really, really amazing.

Take for instance my living room fireplace. It's a pretty cool focal point … Read More>

Being 5 she has an … Read More>

Pumpkin Cookies with Caramel Frosting

Fall is my favorite time of the year. While I don't like my days getting shorter, I love seeing the leaves turn different colors, getting to wear my warm sweaters and having most importantly, having an excuse to make most of the foods my family eats with pumpkin. My daughter and I usually make pumpkin oatmeal and pumpkin bread together. We've even tried pumpkin soup and some day I'm going to get adventurous and try making my own pumpkin puree. In the meantime, we've added a new recipe to … Read More>

Easy Weeknight Meals with Manwich

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Manwich for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. In a few short weeks, I'll have about 5 minutes of daylight before I pick my daughter up from school. Even though we'll be short on daylight, we're long on activities which leaves me little time to fix dinner. Instead of going through the drive through at Freddy's, I've been on the hunt for Easy Weeknight Meals. Aside from leftovers, nothing gets easier than … Read More>
