Tips to Help Baby Sleep Better

Baby Juliza is good at a great many things already. She's a champion breastfeeder (10 months and still going strong), she's already walking, she will repeat word sounds when told, and she is very good and snuggling and giving kisses. But if there's one thing she's struggled with, it's sleep. Since day one, she just has not been a very [...]

Man Style: Outerwear Options from Walmart

He's Wearing: Walls insulated work jacket c/o Walmart | Old golf shirt (similar) | Calvin Klein jeans | Timberland Moc toe boots (aff) I always dread the transition from fall to winter. I do love the summer-to-fall shift, when the weather starts to cool and I have to pull out my long-sleeved tops and denim jackets. But I'm not so [...]

You Better Believe That #GirlsCan

Want to see my mama bear come roaring out? Tell either of my girls that they can't do something. Better yet, tell them that the reason they can't do it is because they're girls. Go ahead. I'll wait. As you might imagine, that kind of talk doesn't go well around these parts. Not even a little. I tend to shut [...]

Pre-Black Friday Deals at Walmart

This year, there seems to be a trend of starting Black Friday deals more than a week in advance of the actual event, and Walmart is leading the pack. What's that you say? Five additional days of Black Friday level sales and pricing? Sounds like a plan to me. This is an opportunity to get some holiday shopping done ahead [...]

Hairfinity Vitamins are Made for Growth

When I decided to grow out my natural hair way back in 2009, the decision was based upon one factor: My desire to rid my life of as many toxic chemicals as possible. I never really thought about what my texture would look like, how I would style it, or even how long it would get. The realization that I [...]

Virgin Mobile Custom = a Smartphone Mom & Dad can Control

Let's be honest. Most of us treat our smartphones like an extra appendage. We check them when we wake up and before we go to bed, and use them for everything from grocery lists to driving directions, social media, gaming and everything in between. So it's understandable that our kids — even young ones — will want to join the [...]

Walmart Continues to Honor Veterans Thumbnail

Walmart Continues to Honor Veterans

Veteran's Day is always a special time for my family. My grandfather, husband, and brothers-in-law have all served their country, and my sister-in-law is still serving. I can easily recall many their stories of service both domestic and overseas, though I will never really know what it is like to potentially sign away my life in service of another. Today, [...]

Baby Juliza: Month 10

I feel like I start every one of these updates in exactly the same way: Disbelief at how fast my little jellybean is growing up. So why break with tradition? This one will be no different. The one year mark is creeping up on us slowly, but surely, and I can't deal. My baby is 10 months old today! It's [...]
