mom voyage, urbini, mom central

“I participated in a Blog Blast on behalf of Mom Central for Urbini. I received information from Urbini to facilitate my post as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” #UrbiniBaby I believe that having &  raising children is a wonderful occasion that no one should have to face alone.  That is why I am so glad that I grew up in the age of technology.  When my mom had all of us girls she had to rely on what she had been told when she was young and from her own experiences.  My father had their only car so she was stuck … [Read more...]

Eventuality Book Blast & Excerpt


If you check at the bottom, you can enter to win a great prize!!! Check out this awesome excerpt from the Eventuality Book. Excerpt: I stepped closer to the mirror, my eyes wide as I studied my reflection. My pants were made of the softest and thinnest navy blue silk I’d ever seen. They were wide legged and hung on me perfectly, accenting my back-side, but falling loose and comfortable just in case I need to throat-kick someone. I smiled. My top was truly something to behold. Made of the same shimmery blue fabric, the corset-like top … [Read more...]

It is Never Too Early to Consider Life Insurance


I read an article last week from an Alabama blogger about a man who died of a heart attack at 44. I was horrified.  My parents are in their late 50's and I don't want to even consider that they are old enough to die.  My grandmother died last year at 74 and I think she was too young to die.  In this man's case, he left behind a wife and three children. They decided to have kids late in life with already having an older daughter and two of the kids were still in the home.  His wife was a stay at home mom and he only had 10,000 in insurance which … [Read more...]
