Have you ever given yourself a timeout? Do you know when to give yourself a time out? As adults we intuitively know when to tell our children to “Go sit in timeout”.

585 Thanks for supporting me in the Relay for Life event!

585 Thanks for supporting me in the Relay for Life event! Thank you for supporting me on my third year of being on Team Nick and raising money for the American Cancer Society. My husband gathered our family when Nick was diagnosed and started our participation in the Relay for Life. It has been an annual event for us every year. Nick has reached his fifth year of being in remission and we do not take that for granted. Thanks to the miracle therapy and drugs that Nick was able to receive he turned 17 this year. Therapy and drugs that were funded by supporters like you and me who support organizations like the American Cancer Society. As a family, anything that can be done, will be so that someone else may celebrate another birthday! Read on to learn more about the Relay for Life.

Dirty face? Clean it with Neutrogena Naturals Cleansing Towelettes! #WipeforWater

In April I was one of the lucky people selected by Influencer to test the Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes.

I admit though I was a bit skeptical about the Cleansing Towelettes removing long-wearing and  waterproof makeup. Read on to watch my 30 day review and learn about the Neutrogena #WipeForWater Movement.

It is innocent enough to ask. I actually found myself asking a newly married couple a few days after their honeymoon, so . . . “When is the baby coming?” After Daniel and I got back from our honeymoon, a few couples opened up to us about their own personal experiences of baby conception. We learned that there are a few things to think about before asking about someone’s baby making progress. Read on for FOUR things to keep in mind  before asking, When is the baby coming?
