Preparing Your Kids to Graduate Debt Free

This is a Sponsored Post for Florida Prepaid. However; all opinions are my own. After the whirlwind of the holidays, over-consumption of gift-buying, cookie-eating, and overindulging in other holiday goodies, we said a nostalgic farewell to 2017, grateful for another year we shared with our families and friends, and eager to "do better" this year! Many of us also said goodbye to our account balances, as in, maybe we spent too much on the kiddos, the in-laws, the teachers, the coaches, and the neighbors. I always make a list and am usually pretty good at sticking to it, but something happened this year. I went way over budget and emerged remorseful once I looked at our savings account. And then I remembered-it’s a brand new year! A brand …

The Whole Damn Mess Debuts The Queen and The Outcast

The Whole Damn Mess Debuts The Queen and The Outcast

Music is my life.  All my childhood memories are attached to music.  Just today, I heard a song on the radio and was instantly taken back to driving in my father's diesel Volkswagen Rabbit. I can almost smell the car that I rode in 35 years ago. Music also takes me back to my first love, my first broken heart, and my husband now.  It still stings to hear certain songs and my heart never recovered from some relationships until I met my husband. So, when I was listening The Whole Damn Mess and took in Don Miggs’ revealing, autobiographical songs, especially "And Then They Were" from their new album “The Queen And The Outcast,” it brought back memories of when I met him.  I waited so …

6 Goals to Begin Finding YOUR Balance in Life

This is a guest post by Sarah K.Weiss, registered Dietitian, RD/LDN.   I met Sarah at Forever Wellness, where I am getting the LED treatment and she does nutritional counseling .  I was instantly drawn to her.  She has my story and my struggle.  We've also had success with weight loss, however, I have issues maintaining my weight loss while she has mastered the art of maintaining her weight loss.  A lot of it is self-sabotage and some of it is learning to find balance in my black and white world.  She is taking me through nutritional counseling for the next six weeks and she has agreed to share some of her valuble wisdom with you, my readers.

The New Year is coming. and I've been thinking about change.  I have many exciting changes ahead of me this year, including a big move to Arizona.  With that said, I need to be aware of my wellbeing.  Moving can be stressful.  I've sort of let myself go at the end of this year for many reasons.  I find myself grabbing a bag of chips for a snack rather than my usual granola and yogurt.  Or I forget to remove my makeup at night.  I've cut down on …

Give the Gift of Gift Cards and Save With ChoiceCards.com

This post is sponsored by Tatu Digital Media. However all opinions are my own. Every year, it seems like the bliss of summer is blotted out all too quickly from the chaos of getting the kids back to school in September, only to be quickly followed by Halloween. This year, on Halloween, my two little ones had so much fun dressing up and getting loads of candy, except I knew in the pit of stomach this meant less than two months until Christmas! Is it me, or is the holiday season sneaking up on us faster and faster? Of course over the summer I had grand ideas of starting my holiday shopping early, telling myself I wouldn’t wait until the last minute like last year. …

4 Tips For Parents to Slow Down for the Holidays

  This post was sponsored by GOJO, the makers of PURELL® Multi Surface Disinfectant, as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.   It's always the same around this time of year.  The grocery stores are packed and you can feel that the Holidays have set in.  Everyone is rushing.  Rushing to buy, buy, buy and putting toys and food back in the wrong place. We are trying to get our houses organized. People are rushing on the road.  Moms are rushing their kids to school.  It's go, go, go.  Even my coffee intake has doubled.  Why can't we slow down?

One of the things I like about the Holidays is finding new non toy items that can actually benefit my kids and make them happy at the same time.  Christmas doesn't have to be all about toys, games, candy, ect.
