Disclosure: “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.” One of my biggest problems over the past eight years has been insomnia. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I began suffering from insomnia during my second pregnancy. From very early on, I had a hard time falling asleep. I think part of it can be attributed to the fact that not only was I stressed out over health and housing issues, my unborn child...

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.” Why I’m participating in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk Though I’m only 33 years old, my life has been touched by cancer more times than I care to admit. I’ve seen friends and family members fight like ancient warriors in a fierce battle against a malignant enemy. All fought with every bit of strength...

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.” Unlike previous summers since my husband and I got together, this one has been a bit more low key for us. We haven’t taken as many day trips as a family because of the kids’ schedules and because of financial reasons. We did manage to squeeze in a few day trips, though, that I captured on my Panasonic LUMIX G7. Because...

Disclosure: “I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’Gosh. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” It’s that time of year again…the beginning of a new school year. For some kids, it’s a time for new school supplies and clothing, but unfortunately for some, that’s not the case. There are parents who can’t afford a brand new wardrobe for their kids, let alone school supplies, so OshKosh B’Gosh, along with...

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...

Disclosure: This sponsored post was brought to you by GiftsForYouNow.com. I was provided with a complimentary product in exchange for an honest review and mention on Frugal Maine. 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...
