I have always enjoyed cooking, but I am not one for coming up with good recipes. I have many cookbooks, but honestly I can flip through one for an hour and still not know what I want to make for dinner. That is one of the many reasons I love Terra’s Kitchen. They make dinners easy by sending you the ingredients you need – already prepped. They have a good amount of recipes to choose from, but not too many that you can’t decide. And the recipes are really easy to follow.
As a mom of two young kids, one thing I am very concerned about is tobacco and cigarettes. They see them everywhere and my husband and I have been trying to teach them about how unhealthy they are. Yes, we even sometimes over exaggerate with words like “ew” and “gross” when we are near someone smoking, but it seems to be helping. I was very pleased to hear about the Seen Enough Tobacco Campaign that Tobacco Free New York has launched because kids really have seen enough.

Every once in a while I really open up to you guys and get (probably) too personal. One of my very first posts was about my home water birth with my youngest daughter. I am not sure if I have really mentioned it before, but my first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. My husband and I had only been married for a couple of months and were thrilled. When we found out we lost the baby, it was extremely hard. In fact, it was not confirmed for about a month which was very hard on us.
I am not a big makeup person in the sense that I do not do a full face of makeup everyday. But one thing that I do nearly every day is wear lipstick. I just feel like it makes my face pop and I enjoy wearing it. I learned about LipSense from a friend of mine, Kara, who happens to sell it. She told me that it lasts entire day – if not longer. I am constantly reapplying lipstick so this sounded like something that would save me lots of time. She sent me some to try out and boy, did it make a difference!
My daughters are very excited for the new Smurfs movie! They love those little blue guys – and OK, my husband and I do too! We grew up watching them and couldn’t be any more excited about the fact that our girls get to as well! I, personally, am so happy they are still around – and with new content coming out. In order to celebrate Smurfs: The Lost Village, we put together some fun cupcakes – and I am going to tell you exactly how you can make them too!
I have a husband and two young kids – so I know a thing or two about clogged toilets. Why is it that kids think they are not fully clean unless they use half a roll of toilet paper? I know that it can’t just be my kids who do this! The results? Lots of clogged toilets. But I cannot put the blame only on them – I shed like a dog in the middle of summer. I am honestly surprised by how much hair I still have on my head – because it ends up all over the house. And that includes our shower and sink drains. We live in an older house and while it is gorgeous – we struggle a lot with clogged drains and toilets due to older plumbing. I spent too much with a plunger or a snake down our toilets before I decided to try Roto-Rooter. I knew they were the #1 brand in plumbing services, but I just never thought to try their drain care products – until now!
One of the most exciting parts of the day for some parents is when their kids are asleep. As challenging and rewarding as parenting can be, sometimes parents just need a little time to relax and unwind. You don’t need to hire a sitter or ask one of your relatives to come over to watch the children. You don’t even need to leave the house.
