Moms…. You are not alone!

This year has been hard. I’m not going to sugar coat it, but just be real. The many doctor visits to finally lead us to a diagnosis for L, the many road trips to the hospital, the many phone calls to get help for our daughter, and include the many hours of research to ensure we are doing the best medical route for L, has brought me to tears. My husband is a strong man and I am grateful he has been right by my side. Moms, when life throws many curve balls your way, please know, you are not alone!

Moms from all around the country have uplifted L and I, have prayed for us, given us support on which medical journey to take, and most of all just been there for us with encouraging words.

There have been many times that friends have asked how can they help? My main answer is I just want L to be able to eat again, be healthy! Take a minute and watch this video from Pfizer Healthcare. See if you can relate.

Time and time again, we put our children first because we just want to meet their every need. Our kids are blessings to us, just as we are blessings to them. Growing up, I always wanted to be a mother and now I am able to be mom to M and L. Sick just got real. ™. Even though bad days are evident, we can always rest assure that we are not on this motherhood journey alone.

This past week, we arrived home from the happiest place on Earth. Our L has had very few smiles over the last few months until we planted our feet on the grounds of Walt Disney World. The smiles were able to wipe the worries of our rare disease away for a few days. These days will be cherished forever.

We have partnered with Pfizer Healthcare to award one mom a $25 Visa Gift Card. Please leave a comment below on how you can use this card to pamper you and/or your family! Good luck! Giveaway ends on May 20, 2016 at 11:59pm EST.

LEGO KidsFest Stops in Charlotte, NC (Win Tickets)

LEGO building was a favorite pastime when I was a young child. My youngest daughter, L, shares the same love for this great toy. Creativity can go on for hours when it comes to LEGOs. It is one toy that does not need batteries and kids can use their imagination to create all types of buildings. If you have a LEGO fan in your family, you will be so happy about the LEGO KidsFest.

Shower Makeover with Zest Fruitboost #ZestFruitboost

I remember from my childhood the Zest commercials where someone would hold the towel on their back while singing “Zestfully Clean”. Isn’t it amazing what commercials stick in our mind? Here is a throw back video of the commercial.

Zest has released a new product that will give your shower experience a fruitful makeover, Zest Fruitboost.

Click to play so you can hear Big Sis and my thoughts on this new shower product:

The clean fruity scent is definitely what I enjoy the most. The new innovative, revitalizing shower gel helps reveal beautiful, glowing skin with rich moisturizers and the antioxidant power of Vitamin C to help nourish your skin. It’s also twice as concentrated as the average shower gel providing double the lather and double the scent, and can be used to up to 40 showers making it a great value. It only takes a dime-sized amount on a shower puff. It will boost your shower experience! The new Shower Gels are only at Walmart. My budget friendly readers and friends will love that it costs less than $3.00. If you use the coupon on the Zest website, you can get it for just $1.98. It is easy to find at Walmart as the gel is with the other Zest products. The three scents are: – Peach Mango, Citrus Splash and Very Berry today! Find Fruitboost at a Walmart near you.

We went ahead and did a total makeover on the bathroom. It’s clean and smells so great which makes for a refreshing shower experience.

Decorate your walls with this easy wall decal! {Giveaway}

It is no secret, that I love to share my faith. I enjoy talking about our great God so much. When you walk into my home, you will see decorations that share our faith. The decorations bring warmth to the house.

An e-mail from Divine Walls landed in my inbox about a month ago. This business provides Christian wall decals for your home, office, and/or church. As I scrolled through their website, I was having a hard time choosing which decal that I would like to put on our bedroom wall. My eyes finally stopped at this specific quote.



The day it showed up at my door step was a very joyful day. The quote arrives in a large tube. I immediately unrolled the decal and read the instructions. The instructions are easy, so no need to stress. You literally just roll it onto your wall. It took me maybe 15 minutes max to ensure it was staying on the wall.

divine walls review


I’m so in love. It fits our bedroom so perfect. My family means so much to me and this quote fits us so well. It looks so professional. Guests think it has been painted on and are thrilled when I tell them about the website, Divine Walls.

As you can see on the website, they have different themes including: family, kitchen, love, inspirational, children and Christmas. You will have to take the time and view all the many different designs. It will be hard to close the website without purchasing a design as the prices are very affordable. If you do not see a design that suits your taste, then you can work with one of their designers to design your own unique wall decal.

Divine Walls is a tight-knit team, brought together by the desire to create beautiful, meaningful decorations for your home, office, or vehicle, based on or inspired by the word of God. We see this venture as a way to help people express their faith and improve the quality of their lives with appealing, tasteful decorations and inspiring phrases.
