Murphy USA Superbowl Snacks on a Budget

I recently told my husband that he couldn't do what I do as as a working blogger and mom. He countered that he could if I gave him  a chance so I set up a test for him. He could do one post while watching the kids and keeping up with whats going on with my social media sites as well. He chose to do a post on buying snacks on a budget for his Superbowl party next weekend. Here is his post, lets see how he did!I recently decided to have a Superbowl party for my friends at my house. Usually my wife takes care of all the shopping and buying but this … [Read more...]

CouponCodes4u & All the Time Savings!

I am sure that I don't need to tell you that I love coupons. Not for the obvious reasons of saving money and getting free things but because it has helped my mom and I have a closer relationship. My parents will visit every other weekend and my mom and I will go shopping.  We have a good system down. She will look up the deals and get extra coupons if its a really good one and I will help her in the store because she has trouble seeing the tiny print on the coupons. We love a good deal. The only thing we don't do as much is shop online because … [Read more...]

Did you ever have a crazy story that you couldn't wait to tell your children when they were older up about your and your spouse? Or one of those stories that you randomly mention that makes your spouse smile every time or shake their heads at the craziness? Well, I do and it revolves around one of my favorite stores, Murphy USA. When my husband and I first started dating we fought all the time! I grew up poor, worked two jobs, was getting my college degree, and had been a single mom for 4 years to Little M. He was a rich kid who worked 10 hours a … [Read more...]

Purex and Jockey Review and G!veaway

One of the super awesome perks of being a Purex Insider is trying out new products! I was recently sent a Jockey Sports Bra and a bottle of Purex Crystals Fabric Softener in Tropical Splash to try out. One of my biggest pet peeves is the fact that my husband never cleans the fabric softener spout and lets it drip down the side of the bottle. Eww. That's one of the great things about Purex Crystals! They are in crystal form and smell wonderful as soon as you open the bottle. They have a lid that you can pour the crystals in or you can just toss some … [Read more...]

Potty Target Review & Blogorama Bonanza Sponsor Spotlight

I received the mentioned products in order to facilitate my review. As always, all opinions are my own. I have said it many times but it is well worth repeating. I live with too many boys! You know what the worst thing about living with boys is? Pee on the toilet. I don't care if they are 5 or 50, they seem to have an innate ability to 'miss' the toilet. Of course, my 9 year old still has problems remembering to lift the toilet seat before he uses the bathroom but that will have to be tackled another day. I was getting very tired of cleaning up … [Read more...]
