Our date nights are special to me, so I spend extra time on my hair, making sure it looks just right and oh so sexy. I like taking my husband’s breath away...

Now that our children are back in school and busier than ever, I’m back to playing chauffeur every day. No joke. This season, between our four children, I have to run back and forth between volleyball, softball, soccer and Tae Kwon Do. I also have to drive an hour back and forth, twice per week, to meet my ex-husband so he can have the kids on the weekend. As you can see, although, I work from home, I don’t have a lot of time to spend on meal preparation, especially at night. Between the sports and homework, I have very...

Disclosure: “I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Zappos.com. I received product samples to facilitate my review.” As many of you already know, I’m a mom to four kids, two biological and two step. That means we have four very different personalities to contend with when it comes to back-to-school shopping. Our oldest (girl) and youngest (boy) love to shop while the two middle kids could do without it. Because of their different personalities and likes, it can be quite a chore...

Sunday night, while perusing Facebook before bed, I came across an update on author and podcaster P.G. Holyfield that made my eyes fill with tears and made me question why life has to be so unfair. Several weeks ago P.G. was diagnosed with a particularly vicious and fast-moving cancer…Cholangiocarcinoma. The cancer spread quickly and time seemed to speed up and many of us found out he didn’t have much time left just days before his passing. To say the news came as a shock would be an understatement. Over the...

Photos included within post are my own.  I admit, I sometimes (often) forget to fold the laundry once it’s done drying. Our schedules are so hectic because of work and the kids’ activities that we sometimes get sidetracked and leave the dry clothes in the dryer overnight, which means wrinkles are inevitable…and unwanted. Also, the kids have a REALLY bad...

When I first started Frugal Maine it was supposed to be a hobby page, a place for me to share my money-saving tips with my fellow Mainers. We didn’t have a lot of options, it seemed, for blogs in this area, and I was hoping to fill a void…for fun. But over the years since, my site has evolved into so much more. It is no longer a hobby site. It is no longer only about saving money. It’s not only meant for Maine residents, of which I no longer am. (I’m a happy and content New Hampshire resident now, which...

One of the choices all brides-to-be have to make before the big day arrives is what kind of bouquet they want. With all the options out there, it’s not an easy decision to make. Real bouquets. Fake bouquets. Colors. Style. Originally I wanted a beautiful, fragrant REAL one. And I know I’m not alone in having wanted that. I think a vast majority of brides do. But after looking at prices online at local floral shops, I had a hard time accepting the fact that I would pay $200 on a bouquet that would rot on me.  Sure,...

Many of you may not know this about me but I’m a bit of a germaphobe. Okay, I’m a HUGE germaphobe. Germs…bacteria…anything that can make you sick makes me cringe. I never used to be as bad as I am now. Sure, when I had kids I was like any mom nowadays and a bit fanatical about allowing anyone to hold my children without first using hand sanitizer....

Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Dove Advanced Care Deodorant. I received a promotional item to facilitate my review. #Sponsored #MC #SleevelessSummerSweeps Summertime is all about about tank tops, strappy summer dresses and bathing suits, but without the proper underarm protection, your fab moments can turn to drab when the temperatures sore, leaving you with body odor and sweaty underarms. I don’t know about you, but when I put on my best summer outfits,...
