Disclosure: “I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Panasonic. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” Ever since my now husband and I moved in together, the summer months have been the ones we look forward to the most since  we get to spend more time together as a family. During the school year we don’t have a lot of free times to do things as a family. Between school, work and after-school activities, we are out straight,...

“I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Influence Central for Pernix Therapeutics. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” The day I found out I was pregnant with my son was a day I will never forget. I had been wanting a second child for years, but it had never worked out. And then it happened. I was over the moon…filled with excitement. What I didn’t enjoy was the sudden onset of insomnia. I figured it had to do with my pregnancy, though, so I didn’t really worry...

Disclosure: “I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” Tonight I would like to share a story with you about a personal cancer scare from years ago that changed my life forever. About six months after my son was born, almost 8 years ago, I went to my primary care physician’s office to have him look at a mole on my leg that concerned me. It had begun to change shape...

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...

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...
