How to Get Up and Go When you Want to Stay Inside!

This is a Sponsored Post for Go Organically.  All opinions are my own. Get up and go!  It's sounds so easy, right?  But in this unpredictable Florida weather, it can be hard, especially in the summer. It has been brutal outside!!! Brutal! Hot and sticky is an understatement.  Even my kids, who beg to go outside and play sometimes complain that it's too hot. We try to do water parks and fun trips but when it gets this hot I lose motivation. Sometimes, you need to simplify it.  Getting out does not mean a big production.  Kids just want to get out and play.  It can be as simple and getting to a shaded park just a couple miles away.  All you need is water, snacks, and sunblock. My boys …

How to Get Alone Time with Mommy Friends

How to Get Alone Time with Mommy Friends

This is a Sponsored Post for Pampers and iConnect. All opinions are my own. My mommy friends are my lifeline.  They understand me in a way that can't be explained.  A look can tell them exactly how I feel and what I'm about to do about those feelings.  I am so grateful for them and don't know what I would do without them. So, we try to spend "kid free" time together but usually the only thing that works is getting together with the kids.  Not because we don't want to be together without the kids, but at the end of the day, we are exhausted.  I choose to relax and stay home most of the time, excluding Birthday dinners and an occasional movie. I like to find …

Swissvita Skincare With AC-11®

Swissvita Skincare With AC-11®

  Lately, I have been more selective with reviewing skincare products.  It seems like everyone out there claims to have "the one."  I'm not looking for drastic results, especially at forty six-years-old.  But now is the time more than ever to take care of my skin.  Gone are the days when I could get by with just a face lotion. Now I have other concerns like wrinkles around my eyes, sun spots, and all around a less youthful appearance.  I even have new concerns such as dark circles under my eyes.  This happened after kids of course.  But some people struggle with dark circles because it's hereditary. This is why I chose to try Swissvita.  Europe has some amazing, high quality products that the States does not offer.  …

Travel Essentials for the Busy Mom

This is a Sponsored Post for Goddess Garden.  My obsession with their sunscreen is completely my own opinion. Also, there are affiliate links in this post which help MomJunky to keep going. Sometimes I feel like I live in my car.  We spend so much time going from one place to the next;  like an hour drive to The Museum of Discovery and Science, a two hour drive to new LEGOLAND Beach Retreat, or even a four hour drive to Universal or Disney.  I know, luxury problems, right?  You betcha!  I love my life! But preparing for a road trip, no matter how long, can be daunting. We are always on the go and I'm thinking of new ways to avoid trashing the car. With that being …

An Open Letter to the Woman Cashing Out in Front of me at Target

An Open Letter to the Woman Cashing Out in Front of me at Target

  This post contains affiliate links.  Purchases through these links will support MomJunky.com. Here we are again.  Another open letter. To the lady at Target that was cashing out in front of me: I know my boys are rambunctious. I know they are “wild,” as you so quickly pointed out. I also know that they are boys.  Delicious, funny, sweet, loving boys. And I am a #boymom all the way. They are brothers, actually - you can relate - you have two girls, you said. Shopping at Target is not on my "things I love to do with two boys under the age of 5 when they are hungry and tired" lists. It just isn't. My husband can handle it, no problem. I'm not up for all the nonsense it …

4 Ingredient Salmon Fold It With a Kick

4 Ingredient Salmon Fold It With a Kick

This is a Sponsored Post.  All opinions are my own. I have been back on the Smart For Life Diet for a couple of months now and I've lost 15 lbs.  So, I'm starting to incorporate healthy foods that were not on the "list" of foods I was able to eat, such as fruit.  This is considered the Maintenance Plan.  I can slowly incorporate other healthy foods, but in moderation. While on the Smart For Life Diet, I have been eating a lot of salmon. I love salmon.  I eat it 2-3 times a week.  I could eat it every day raw if it was possible.  Then I'd lay on the couch in a happy salmon coma.  Salmon is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, …

"Are They Your Grand Kids?" She Asked
July 16, 2017

It finally happened.  The day I had been dreading. I was expecting it when my kids were in grade school, not while getting their pre-kindergarten check up. Flashback to my makeup days working for Lancôme....Jacksonville. The client was sitting in my chair while I was doing her makeup.  Highlighting, contouring, shaping, and doing all the necessary things to give the illusion of youthfulness. She was about 55 years-old.  In our conversation, she told me that she had a toddler. My first reaction was, wow, she’s old- that poor kid.  How will she keep up with him?  What will his friends think when he’s older? This concerned me.  At the same time, I wondered, what makes people want to have children later in life?  Do they think it through?  Do they think …

OVO From Cirque du Soleil Is Coming To Sunrise and Miami!

This is a sponsored post for U.S. Family Guide and Cirque du Soleil.  However, all opinions are my own. This was my second time at Cirque du Soleil. The first time was about 10 years ago in Miami. I don’t know why it took me so long to go back to see one of their amazing productions, but I am not going to wait that long to go back this time! Ten years later, I am married to the man that took me on a date that night.  We now have children and I really wanted them to experience it.  I am so glad I did.  The wonderment in their eyes was enough to go back again.  They are five and three-years-old and they did not move …
