Clean House, Happy Life


After a long day at work, the last thing you want to do is come home and clean. From washing dishes to folding clothes to making up beds, there are so many household chores and they take so much of your time. Instead of having to tackle one project at a time and never feeling like your house is completely clean, give yourself the gift of a clean house by calling a local cleaning company in Houston.

The Polaroid POP is my Favorite Digital and Instant Camera Combo

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Instant cameras have made a huge comeback. I see them at school events, and two of my grown kids have them too. I love them, but the size of the pictures had got smaller for awhile...until now!! Back to the generous size that's similar to days of old, this brand new Polaroid Pop offers up 3.5 x 4.25" prints instantly, or you can use the digital option with the SD card to save and print later. In addition to that, it's sleek looking and I can't get enough of it. I just love to look at it! The features make it fun to play with, and the touchscreen makes it very easy to learn and maneuver. In the photo above, the print is just finishing up...completing it's roll out of the camera. You can watch the picture forming, as it moves towards the top, which is a new feature I've never seen before. Both me and cutie patootie up there liked that one.

Baby's Book: Teddy Bear from Peter Pauper Press

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


There are so many varieties of products and places that sell them that you can usually find a good substitute for something, if you can't find the original, for what it is you are trying to buy. Every once in awhile though, there is an item that you want to find, and no substitute takes its place very well at all. That's how I feel about this particular baby book sold by Peter Pauper Press. I wrote about it way back in 2012 (you can access that article here if you would like) and now that my daughter is expecting it's the only one I want for her because a). it was adorable b). it was sturdy c). it was thorough, allowing for so many entries to take place between pre-birth and the age of (5).

I Finally Met THAT Baksetball Mom

He's always got a basketball in his hand. ;)
Just so you know, for the most part, I am not a confrontational person. I tend to address things quietly if they need attention, go directly to the source, and do it when no one is around, hoping to get a better understanding of what is going on, or find a peaceful remedy. So when I found myself ready to argue publicly with a woman, at my son's basketball game, I had to find the strength to be the better person, and not be 'that parent.'

One Puzzle Piece at a Time

...that's my new mantra, or maybe my old mantra, but I've just recognized it, because in practicality it doesn't seem all that foreign of a concept to applications I've been doing for years.


As I was putting together a jigsaw puzzle, a luxury I don't often get to do because of time constraints, it kept coming to my mind that life is like a puzzle and you just have to work at it, one piece at a time. How?

Sposie Booster Pads for Diapers Giveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


What we spent some time doing over here just before Christmas was getting a surprise baby shower ready for my daughter. I know you're supposed to do it closer to the due date (she's due later in March) but she mentioned that she wished it could be earlier, so I thought a great holiday gift idea would be to surprise her on Christmas Eve with a baby shower she had no idea was coming.
