5 Simple Ways to Lead A Healthier Lifestyle

This year I turned 40. While I truly believe age is only a number, I also realize that things don't work like they used to. In my glory days I could stay out all night and then wake up early the next morning and run a personal best. I could eat fast food more times that I'd like to admit and never gain weight. I was never sick and didn't have to worry about things like flu shots and annual checkups. Now I have to do things a little differently. While I still am active and consider myself … Read More>

Chevy Impala

Stay Connected with 4G LTE WiFi

In 1989 my dad took me to buy my very first car, a red Chevrolet Cavalier Z24. It had just over 5,000 miles, a cassette player, power windows and what I thought was the coolest feature ever, back seats that folded down so I had easy access to the trunk! I loved that car as much as a teenage girl could. Thinking about that car takes me back to some great memories: out of town football games, state fairs and of course, the occasional concert. A lot has changed since my first car. I'm fairly … Read More>

Best Phones for Fitness Apps

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sprint. I received a sample device to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating. #SprintMom #sponsored #MC It's not secret that I like to work out.  A couple of months ago my boyfriend and I went on an outdoor adventure where we hiked about 60 miles through 3 national parks. I've been known to run a half-marathon or two and recently started cycling. Even with all these … Read More>

VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch

The VTech product, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by VTech. For months and months my daughter told me she wanted a Frozen birthday party. She told me exactly what she would wear (Elsa's dress), what we would eat and who would be invited. Then, one hot summer day she decided she wanted a Rock Star birthday party. I procrastinated planning the party because I knew she was going to change her mind. Only she didn't. Instead, she tricked me and it was a Rock … Read More>

He has football season tickets and makes it to most of the home games and a few of the away ones. As much as I like giving him a hard time about his choice in teams, I have to admit that Oklahoma football games are a lot of fun to watch. I haven't been to one in years but this year, that changes as he gave me tickets to the … Read More>

Maximizing My Time with TMobile Free Data

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #TabletTrio #CollectiveBias I'm a scheduler. If it's not on my calendar, then it probably won't happen. With a full-time career, a part-time home based business and an active 5-year old, if I don't maximize my time wisely, nothing gets done. Groceries don't get purchased (we've been out of bread for over a week), the dog doesn't get walked (OK, that's not entirely the calendar's fault) … Read More>

Functional Furniture from Sauder

Sometimes, when I don't want to do the things I have to do (like paying bills, updating my budget or work work), I rearrange furniture. Yes, I have a problem.I believe this started when I was about 12 years old. In my teeny tiny bedroom I had a twin bed and a chest of drawers. There weren't a lot of different ways I could arrange my room but you better believe every 4-5 months, my bed would be against a different wall. Now that I have my own house, I don't move furniture...as much. Every now … Read More>
