Hydration Tips for Your Kids from the NFL #NFLPLAY60 #NFLHealthSafety

Official NFL Mom Blogger #NFL #NFLPLAY60 #NFLHealthSafety

Frequent readers likely recall that I am a mommy of 5, 4 boys and 1 girl.  My oldest son played high school football for 4 years and runs track in college, my second oldest son currently plays high school football and runs on the track team, my daughter will begin high school tennis this summer, and my twin 6 year old boys will be participating in numerous sports camps this summer including flag football.

A bit of Family History while visiting Big Brother


My parents both met in college and our oldest son now attends that same university.  It's a rather fun shared experience between them and it particularly tickles my Dad.

My 2012 Sleep Number Mattress just got smarter with #SleepIQ


Long time readers may recall that back in March of 2012, I received the Sleep Number m7 Memory Foam Mattress for my review.  It has since provided my husband, various occasional evening visitors, and I many comfortable night's of customizable comfort when sleeping.  3 years later, we are still in love with this mattress and excited to be adding a new feature to it.  Stay tuned for my review of the new SleepIQ technology we've recently added to our existing Sleep Number mattress.

April Showers = Excuse to binge watch Netflix's Original Series #StreamTeam

Here's what our household is currently watching and would you believe that all of these are original to Netflix?

Papermoon Alexus Dress in Black, Renee C Tucker Mixed Pint Split-Back Top, Sweet Rain, Larry Sheer Yoke Knit Top, and Papermoon Elvina Embroidery Detail Pocket Front Top


I'm a busy married mommy of 5 who has a need for a wide assortment of clothes on the ready.  Plus I live in Chicago, so seasons are a factor.  I need clothes to wear to school sporting events, clothes to wear to work events, clothes to wear on date night, clothes for Florida beach trips, clothes for winter ski trips, special occasion attire to wear to events like my daughter's graduation, a black tie gala, or even someones funeral.  I should also mention that I have zero time or desire to shop for all this, I'm not exactly built like a supermodel, and I don't want to spend a fortune on clothes either.  I've been saying for years what I really needed was to just purge most of my closet and enlist a professional to help me.  Meet Stitch Fix ...
