No other monetary compensation was given. All thoughts and opinions, as well as included photos, are my own. Going into this past year of school, my husband and I never thought we’d have two children graduating/ leaving middle school for the halls of the high school. We thought his daughter, who was in 8th grade, was the only one moving...

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Uricalm for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. A UTI (urinary tract infection) is a horrible, horrible infection to get. Been there. Done that. Got the tshirt. While it may be hard for some women to admit that they get UTIs because, unfortunately, there’s a stigma surrounding people who get them, I’m not one of those women who’s ashamed she gets them. I started getting them years ago, and it’s not uncommon for me to get one once per year or more....

Disclosure: This post is brought to you by York’s Wild Kingdom. I was given free passes to the park in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and photos are my own. I can’t believe it’s been two years since we last took my two rugrats to York’s Wild Kingdom. I can’t remember why we didn’t last year, but I suspect it had to do with our crazy schedule. (My husband and I got married last year!) This year we got to take all four kids to York’s Wild Kingdom before it got to hot and...

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Boys & Girls Clubs of America. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” Did you know that June is Internet Safety Awareness Month? This month marks the third consecutive year that BGCA (The Boys & Girls Clubs of America), along with Sprint, are helping to educate parents about internet safety awareness. They are asking parents to submit questions they may have about cyberbullying, social networking, online...

We’ve had an extremely busy couple of months in our household. My daughter had track. Three out of four kids were preparing for a tae kwon do tournament. There was the play my stepdaughter was in and her trip to Washington, D.C. It’s been go go go. Last year during track my daughter did very well for her first year. She came in 15th in the state in shot put. This year, she did even better. She qualified for four events at the State Championship: 100m hurdles, 200m, shot put and 4 x 100m relay. Her results: #9 in the...

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Mabel’s Labels. I received a voucher to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. I have some of the most forgetful and disorganized kids on the planet. They misplace their schoolwork, books, backpacks, lunchboxes, etc., ALL THE TIME! At least once a day I hear, “Mom/Nikki, I can’t find (insert item here)…” from one of the four kids, if not more. I think they honestly believe...

No other monetary compensation was given. All thoughts and opinions, as well as included photos, are my own. Throughout the year, my husband spoils me rotten. He hows me how important I am and how often he thinks of me during the day when we are apart. He makes a conscious effort to show me how important I am to him and our children. He puts the kids and...

Disclosure: I participated in an Influence Activation for State Farm Neighborhood Assist. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. In previous posts on my site, I’ve shared with all of you how important it is to my husband and I to give back to our community and pay good deeds forward. We were taught by our parents to always help others when we can, and that is something we are also trying to teach our children, as well with the hope they will teach their future offspring. One way that I love to...

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sterling for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. One of the many improvements I want to make to our home is to install bath doors on our upstairs bathroom tub. Currently we use a fabric curtain…and I hate it. It gets dirty easily; the build up on the plastic sheet grosses me out. The thing is, I’m very fussy about shower doors because they can be a pain. Some of them come off their runners very easily. I remember showering at my mom’s house and the...
