Cave Tools Digital Meat Thermometer

Springtime means time to dust off the old BBQ! One thing I know is that BBQ time means I can make dinner for a week in one sitting! Plus, there is a BBQ method I've always wanted to try, but haven't because I lacked the tools to make sure that everything was cooked properly!

Francois et Mimi 700 Thread Cotton Luxury Sateen Egyptian Cotton Sheets King Size

Sleep is something that I practically ran from when I was younger.  I now I wish I could go back to my younger self and shake them into getting more sleep.  Mainly because, as a mom, sleep isn't something that I get the chance to take advantage of often.  So, the bed has become a place that I wouldn't mind having a stay-cation in!

Petunia Skincare Derma Roller

We all have our battles.  A few years ago I wrote about one I went through with a lipoma.  It left me with a nasty scar after the site was opened up.  To, this is my new battle, trying to make this scar look a little better.  We all have scars, some are just more visible than others and some can be healed until they are barely visible.  Others like this one are uglier than what caused them!!

15" Packing Folder

Packing a suitcase for a business trip can be tricky, especially with the charges that they are putting on luggage now a days!  Keeping everything together and organized is key, but can be difficult to do with clothes.  You can shove the shoes and toiletries in zip-lock bags, but do that to a shirt and you can end up with a wrinkled mess!

Hango Lunch Bags

When you have kids you suddenly find items that you once used for their exact purpose, being re-used and re-purposed.  This means that whatever you were using the item for now needs a replacement.  It can be difficult to find good replacements and frusturating to find that you now needs a back up in case their is an issue or another case of re-purposing!

Baby Comfy Gummi

Teething babies is the worst.  They are miserable and suddenly anything becomes something for them to stick in their mouths to sooth their sore gums.  This unfortunately can include your shoulder, arm, or finger and those little teeth can hurt!

Tips I wish I had when Starting my business

Running your own business is difficult.  One of the hardest things to do can be to get your name out there.  I run a small home daycare from my home and it is a huge balancing act.  I'm not just the educator and caregiver, but record keeper, advertising department, compliance officer, and the list goes on.  So, when I started out one of my biggest hurdles was finding potential clients.  Being new to the area, this left me without the normal word of mouth.  Sometimes you need tools to help you with your business.

Cranberry Baby Diaper Bag

One of the most used items a mom will ever get or need is a baby bag.  It will be where you turn when things get messy, busy, sticky, or half a dozen other situations.  The more kids you have, the more moments that need something from the bag you will have.  I have 3 kids, so I'd better have a big bag!

Madonna's #RebelHeart Album #O2O

It is the queen herself! I can not believed that this woman has been rocking my speakers for my entire life, well at least since elementary school. I'm not sure how she does it but she is timeless. So, I feel blessed to get a chance to check out her latest album: Rebel Heart!!

Francois Et Mimi French Coffee Press

I don't know about you but I have to have a morning pick me up  Especially with all the remodels we have been doing downstairs!  It honestly has a person looking for something that at least looks put together, even if everything else in life is a cluttered disaster!  

FlavFusion Infuser Waterbottle

I've been hearing about people getting into using water infused with fruits and I wanted to know what the fuss was all about.  So, I looked it up to see just what the benefits are of drinking infused water.  I have to say it would seem that their may actually be something to it.

Francois et Mimi Jumbo Mugs

So, Spring time flowers are beautiful, but spring time allergies are not!  So, what feels best in a chilly spring time evening when you have a allergy nose?  A big bowl of soup.  The kind that makes your tummy drool and your insides just relax.  It doesn't matter what kind it is, just that it gives you that feeling of ease and warmth deep down inside.

Vetro iphone 6 Screen Cover

I just got a new smartphone.  Up to now we have held off on getting them for a number of reasons.  One of them is that I run a daycare!  Kids are phone murderers!  I can't tell you how many times they have pick pocketed, grabbed off the counter, or knocked out of my hands my old phone.  Naturally, I've been a little paranoid with this new phone!

Virgin Argan Oil

I used to be up on fashion, or at least able to give it a run for it's money, but since having kids I'm not sure I'm even in the race.  That doesn't mean I'm not still trying to take care of myself or teach my children how to care for themselves.  In fact, since having kids I find myself looking for things to use for them so they won't have to figure it out later.

IGotTech Texting Gloves

I love the spring time in the desert!  What I don't love is my poor circulation and how cold my hands and feet can get!  To make that worse, if you have a smartphone, you know that cold hands mean your phone won't even know you are there!  It's the worse kind of rejection, the cold hand!

Bath Outlet Soap Dispenser

I hate it when something breaks that I don't usually shop for mainly because I tend to subsequently forget to grab one whenever I'm at the store!  Then I find myself eventually trolling the web to just order it online so I won't forget again.  It is a pain.  And you know the type of forgettable stuff I'm talking about because it is usually something that shouldn't be forgotten.  It's the stuff you bought when you first moved into the home you live in and won't buy again for years!  Anyone have this problem or is it just me? Coupon codes!

Check out some great coupon codes that I found for!  I know more than one of you probably shop at this online store and so I figure I'd share some of the codes I found to help you save a few bucks!  You just go to by clicking here: and enter in one of these codes to get the deal!

Adorable and Affordable Nursery Cuteness

So, I have a little of my own, plus I'm going to be an Auntie soon!  So naturally, I'm looking for some baby cuteness for my sister and myself.  I found some serious cuteness going on at Baby Bedding Town, you can find them here:, and the prices were pretty good when compared to some of the brick and mortar places I've looked through.  They had some seriously expensive items for those of you with large wallets plus some items for those of us a little more wallet consious that didn't lack in the cuteness factor!  If you are looking for yourself or someone you know check them out!  Get some adorable stuff to finish the nest up with and have it delivered, save yourself the drag of waddling through the store pregnant!

Francois Et Mimi Ice Cream Bowls

Spring has sprung in Arizona! With it come some fun like flowers, picnics, and (my kids favorite) ice cream!  So, why not bring some spring inside with fun colors to put, of course, ice cream!

CellPRO SPORTS Armband

I just got my first smart phone a Moto G.  The first thing I noticed was that it no longer just slid into my pocket for a jog or really most things.  My old phone was a flip phone and just clipping it over something to carry it with me was not longer an option.  So, time for a new solution.

Solutions Solved Seat Back Protectors

As soon as kids are big enough the back of my seat became a leg rest of sorts.  Or a way to make creative art out of foot prints.  Either way it is annoying and a pain to clean up!  So, I looked for something to help me out and found a great product to review for you.

Beabies Teether Necklace and Bracelet

I hate it when a baby is cutting teeth.  For my first kid we had it easy and they only let us know when it became time for molars, with the other two it's been a different story.  The runny noses, drool, pain, and constant chewing can just break your heart.  Worse is the stuff that they sometimes chew on, toys, clothes, and anything on or including us!

Travel Hardwear Money Belt, Wallet, Passport Holder with Free Luggage Straps

I hate having to grab and change things in and out of the diaper bag into my purse.  Worst is having to lug around both. I can pull octo-mom arms all day, but their are times when one less bag or one smaller transition would be a huge time saver!
