Pool Day! Cooling Off in the Summer Heat

My family and I recently moved, and we are in our glee at the moment. After years of apartment living, we are finally in a house! It's a rental, but it's a beautiful rental with a lot more space than what we had before. Plus, no neighbors downstairs or upstairs. I'd call that a win. But the one thing our [...]

Save Money in a Snap with Walmart’s Savings Catcher

Being self-employed means getting used to a flexible budget. There are ebbs and flows in our earnings, and they're not always as predictable. Meaning? Sometimes, things are really tight for us. I've never been a big couponer, because I usually just don't have the time necessary to not just clip and track coupons, but shop at several stores trying to get [...]

Review: Plum Organics Baby Food

Baby Juliza is growing up fast. Too fast, it seems some days. And with growing up comes experimentation with food. She's at the age now when she wants to try everything that we're eating. Sometimes, that works. We can mash a little of whatever fruit or veggies we're having and share with her. But there are times when we can't [...]

I'm Wearing: Avia performance tank from Walmart  |  Avia performance capris from Walmart  |  Puma sneakers (similar) (aff) I'll start this off with a bit of honesty: I've become lazy. In fairness, I've had a good reason to slow down. Having a baby will do that to you. But baby Juliza was born six months ago, and it's about time [...]

Let’s Eat Healthy Together This Summer

During the summer, many families will see their grocery bills increase a bit. With kids home all day every day, that means providing meals that they normally would've eaten at school. Plus snacks. And BOY, can kids snack! But while we're balancing our own food budgets, it's easy to forget about the kids who face a much bigger problem: Getting [...]

Baby Juliza: Month 6

Ummm. Apparently, I blinked and wound up with a 6-month-old baby on my hands. I feel like I suddenly woke up to a child with tons of personality who can sit up and is interested in real food and who has hair I have to detangle. I'm amazed at how much her hair has grown. I amazed at how much [...]

Man Style: Affordable Polos and Shorts

The best way to describe my husband's style is cool and casual. He will dress up on occasion, but he is most comfortable wearing — well — comfortable clothes and fly sneakers. So when Walmart asked me to shop for men's polos and shorts for the summer, I knew both would be right up his alley. The selection was huge! There were [...]

DIY Tie-Up Sandals for Young Fashionistas

My oldest daughter grows like a weed. So much that she wears almost the same size shoe as me. She's 8. The challenge is that I'm forced to shop in the women's section for shoes that can fit her, but a lot of the styles are just a tad too grown up for my little girl. We typically end up buying basic [...]
