Blessings: DVR (Day 15)

Verse to ponder: This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118: 24 I told you from day 1 of my series that not every day of my Blessings posts would be deep. It’s hard to make things exceptionally deep sometimes. And,...

Blessings: Naps (Day 11)

Verse to ponder: Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy,...

Blessings: the iPad (Day 8)

I told you on day 1 that not every day of blessings would be the deepest. Today, I’m simply thankful and feel blessed because of iPads. Let me explain. When I was expecting Flash, we decided to buy an iPad so I’d be able to do my online teaching work from...

Motivate Your Child (Review)

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book and compensation in exchange for my review. These opinions are 100% mine. To get our children to do things without argument: sounds like a fable, right? Seems like we all work so hard on a daily basis and reach our...

Simply Aroma FREE Special Enrollment Kit

When I was pregnant with Baby Flash (I should probably just call him Flash now), I first started hearing about essential oils in a way that made sense for how to use them. He was footling breech, and I was scared out of my mind for what that might mean as far as...

Why you should join my Simply Aroma team NOW

You’ve seen me talk about Simply Aroma time and again. I joined before the company even launched (my official date was in December of 2013 — the company launched January 2014). You’ve seen me go on and on about how much I love the company. I’ve...

Essential Oils to Boost Your Mood

Winter is that time of year that is both exciting (Christmas! New Years!) and draining (so cold! no sunshine!). With the dreary days that winter can bring, our moods can quickly diminish. It’s easy to feel down in the pits when you can’t get outside to...

Why I love Simply Aroma

It has been a little over a year since I joined Simply Aroma as one of the very first consultants. In fact, when I joined, it was before I’d even seen or tried out any products. I made an absolute leap of faith, and I’m so glad I did. I know it may seem...

Do You Miss It?

I quit teaching in the face-to-face high school classroom in April of 2011. It dawned on me the other day that I’ll finish up FOUR years of being at home with my kids this coming summer, and that I’ve missed an entire class (freshman to senior) of students...

Live Colors for Kids (Review)

The Animal likes to color. He loves to write his numbers and letters in every color he can find and then “trace them” (this is how he says “erase them”) and start over. We have been playing with a new app, Live Colors for Kids. This app is...

Last Letter: A Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. At our house, Game Night is always fun. Miss Sassy Pants has always enjoyed trying out our “old” games — Scrabble, Life, Guess Who, and Pictionary are frequent fliers. We have the most fun...

Dropped the ball

A little over three years ago, I quit teaching in the face-to-face world. I was hugely pregnant with my second child, and I could barely walk. My husband and friends urged me to go ahead and take the remainder of the school year for my maternity leave. Spring Break...

Christmas Vlog!

I finally took the time to create a Vlog, and I did it just in time to link up with Mama Kat’s Vlogging Workshop. Her suggestions for topics were all so awesome that I just couldn’t decide. So, I blended three to make my Christmas vlog. To anyone watching...

Vlogging Workshop: Back to School Tag

Stop the presses — I am not only blogging today, but I even created and published a VLOG. Something must be going on. Oh wait – the kids are in school. That means that I’m home in the morning with Baby Flash who still takes a morning nap (woot!), and...

Advice for New Moms (Vlog)

I’ve been a mom for 9 years, and I like to impart my wisdom to other moms (and dads) when given the chance. Today, Mama Kat is hosting a link up, and one of the topics is, “What advice would you give a new mom?” I’m all over that: What advice...
