Tips on Securing a Home Mortgage: Cricket’s Ask the Expert

Cricket's Ask the Expert Series As a 2014 Cricket Ambassador, I was asked to participate in one of my favorite parts of the campaign: their Ask the Expert series. The last segment was with Carol Cain of Girl Gone Travel (one of my favorite travel bloggers) on budget family travel. It was awesome! But when I got tapped for the next round, I instantly freaked out. Ask the expert? Who me? I offered up ideas on raising multiraical children, mixed hair care, the usual that you would find here. But what Cricket really wanted was for their customers to learn how to save money, in addition … [Read more...]

Step2 Great Outdoors Playhouse Review We were all so excited when the kids' first outdoor playhouse arrived at our doorstep - the Great Outdoors Playhouse is everything my kids hoped it would be!

Our Love for Dr. Seuss and Read Across America

Our Love for Dr. Seuss and Read Across America

When I became a new mom and wanted to explore the world of literacy with my baby, some of the first books I reached for were the iconic Dr. Seuss books. I started with One Foot, Two Foot, which Alina just adored, and moved on to other classics quickly thereafter. Because I'm crazy, I even created an Excel worksheet of all the books written and illustrated by the infamous Dr. Seuss and made notations every time we purchased a new one. (Apparently, I had way too much time on my hands back then!). By the time Alina turned one, we were halfway towards establishing a library of Dr. Seuss books I … [Read more...]

Alina’s First Valentine’s Day Box!

Alina is having her first Valentine's Day party at school today and we had a great time making and decorating this Valentines Day Box using a cereal box. She and I are having a blast making crafts for kids, working on fine motor skills and such - it's more crafting than I've ever done in my life!

The things we do for our babies, right? We visited our local Walmart to get all our supplies. Luckily for us, they're a one stop … [Read more...]
