We have been long time fans of LeapFrog products. For the past 15+ years my boys have been playing with them. We’ve had every handheld and tablet they’ve made and still have the original Leapster! To say we are fans is an understatement. My youngest son is 7 and autistic and he has been using […]

Favor Delivery Service App Denver

You don’t even know how many times I’ve thought, “Man, I’d love to get Chipotle right now, but…” Either a kid is sick or I’m too busy, or the car is acting up, or it’s snowing, or maybe it’s just that I don’t feel like putting on a bra that day. Now people in Denver […]

Everything You Ever Wanted, A Memoir by Jillian Lauren

Everything You Ever Wanted, Jillian Lauren

Being in the blogging world, there are some names that jump out at you, whether they are bloggers or authors. One of those names that stood out for me was Jillian Lauren.

My boys love video games. LOVE them. We have every major system and spend more time at Game Stop than at the library. Obsessed doesn’t begin to cover it.

My family and I love trying new restaurants. The only problem is, we can never seem to agree on where to go. There’s my Kansas-born and bred husband who doesn’t believe it’s a meal if it doesn’t include a giant hunk of meat. There’s my 7 year old son, whose sophisticated tastes range from Korean […]

Does Zerona Actually Zap Your Fat Away?

zerona does it work to zap your fat

I’m a sucker. I’ll bet the first to admit it. So when I saw a Groupon for Zerona promising me the “Only FDA approved laser body contouring” I jumped on it. I’ve been not-so-slowly gaining weight due to a bad reaction to a combo of medicine I was on and mix that with being lazy and feeling […]

Ballet and The Bard: Colorado Ballet Presents “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

Artists of Colorado Ballet by Mike Watson2 (1)

I’ve always loved Shakespeare’s comedies the best. There’s always a love triangle, often a magic spell or two, and the master of words crafted the dialogue with lots of satire, puns, and innuendos. But without the Bard’s unique phrasing, rhyming, and double entendres, would a classic story be any good without any words at all?  My […]

After getting to interview Mia Hamm about getting kids active and learn about the LeapFrog LeapBand, I thought I would post my own review of the product. (Don’t forget we have a giveaway going as well!!!) When LeapFrog sent me the LeapBand, I was a little nervous as to how Brady would receive it. He […]

  I’ve been looking for a piece of mother’s jewelry for several years now–something to remind me daily of my three babes (as if they’d ever let me forget them!) but in typical “me” style, it would have to be something very unique.  So, when I discovered Mama B’s Sweet Peas on another blog that I follow, […]

The Toyota Sienna Saved our Sanity During Our Road Trip

Toyota Sienna Review

Imagine a road trip with your family. Husband, Wife, three boys ages 6 to 15. Throw in a special needs kiddo and the fact the husband has to work for 24+ hours the day before you leave. Your destination is 800 miles away. In between you and your destination? The entire state of Kansas. Sounds […]

911 Driving School Westminster Colorado Drive Fit

Recently my oldest turned 15 and with that came the ever important driving learner’s permit. ACK! Am I really old enough to have a kid who is ready to drive?! A friend of ours works for 911 Driving School in Westminster and I loved how the entire program is taught and run by current and […]
