As my one stop shop, Walmart turned an average morning into a fun adventure with my little man. Together, we looked through racks of costumes, pulling his favorites out and finding accessories.... and  then when it was time to decide on one, we couldn't. We bought them all! Ha!

Learning About Lighting: Better Homes and Gardens for Walmart

Ever since visiting the headquarters for Better Homes and Gardens in Iowa this past summer, I've been assessing my home for ways to improve its decor and the feeling it projects to my family.

One thing I learned while with BHG and Walmart was that … [Read more...]
