Spring Apparel finds @ P.S. from Aeropostale #psAeroVIPBlogger



Good news for anyone dreaming of warmer weather.  The first of P.S. from Aeropostale's Spring collections has hit stores.  The timing is perfect as I found myself in urgent need of warm weather apparel for the twins with our last minute Disney World Trip coming up next month.

CVS supports path to better You with Private Brands


Our 2015 began with a couple rounds of us vs. a million nasty germs and we clearly lost the first few battles.  Thankfully it wasn't anything overly serious and everyone is back to normal now.  (knock on wood)  In the end it provided excellent motivation to get a bit more serious about healthy living.  CVS/pharmacy is getting serious about healthy living too.  They recently introduced two new, private brand labels, underscoring the company’s commitment to healthy living.

DisneyNational Geographic Disney Parks Then and Now Photo Contest


I have some fun news.  My husband and I along with the youngest 3 of our 5 kids will have the chance to head back to Disney World in a little over a month.  As you might imagine everyone is very excited to see Mickey and his pals again.  And while we are on the subject of Disney Parks, I wanted to share some info about a fun Disney Parks related contest by National Geographic.

Awesome Pack: The Monthly subscription box for family fun


It's no secret I love subscription boxes.  I've covered over a dozen on this blog since they gained mass popularity over the past few years.  What's not to love about a monthly surprise catered towards your personal passions.  Around Christmas time I was introduced to another entry into the subscription box category that is really rather awesome, Awesome Pack.

January, and so the new year began


It was a tissues, warm tea, fuzzy blankets, and spoons full of honey kind of start to our new year.  The weather was so cold in the our Chicago suburb that the kids were back home for a few days immediately following their return to school from their holiday break.  All of the above put a delay in my typical January traditions that normally include a renewed desire to improve all sorts of things including myself, my blog, and my home.  As my need for honey to soothe has lessened, I've finally mustered the strength to tackle all those new year, new me type goals with a big old closet purge first on my list.

It's safe to assume you'll be seeing some tweaking around the blog in the next few months as well as some content that embraces this fresh beginning to the year (minus the not-so-fancy stale tissues and dust bunnies part of course).
