Sing Along with Annie, Plus Twistout for Natural Hair

I grew up watching the 1982 version of Annie, and like the rest of the world, I was captivated by the little redhead who had a way of making everyone smile. I loved the story of this little orphan who found a home in the most unexpected of places, and I loved the music. Fast forward more than 30 years [...]

Shopping for Baby, Part 1 Thumbnail

Shopping for Baby, Part 1

I am a creature of habit. When it comes to shopping, that means I tend to be very brand loyal. Once I find a product that I really like, I stick with it, shopping trip after shopping trip. This is great for the brands that I love, but it means that I rarely try new products or find out if [...]

Review: LUVS New Super Absorbent Diapers Thumbnail

Review: LUVS New Super Absorbent Diapers

My little lady is a soaker — meaning she soaks right through her diapers entirely too often. This is, in large part, why we don't use cloth diapers. I just don't have time to change her clothes several times a day. However, it still sometimes happens with disposables. So when Walmart asked me to try their exclusive new LUVS Super Absorbent [...]

Outfit: Spring has Sprung

Georgia is a big tease. In between the crazy cold, windy days, we'll get a 60-degree day here and a 70-degree day here, and I'll think spring is here to stay. Of course, I'll be wrong, and it's back to 30 degrees the next day. And it leaves me bitter every time. Still, there are some places where spring is [...]

DIY Easter Dress for an 18″ Doll

Easter is just around the corner, and my daughter always looks forward to it. Not because of Easter egg hunts or the Easter Bunny — but because she gets to dress up in a fancy new outfit. She loves the frills and colors and overall girly-ness of Easter fashion. When Walmart challenged me to share an Easter project this year, [...]

Lent Recipe: Vegetarian Crockpot Chili

When I was growing up, lent was always an interesting time at my house. Because honestly, meat was a huge part of our diet, and meals usually started with the meat and built from there. So lent presented a challenge. We usually wound up eating lots of starches and vegetables, with very little protein on the table. Thankfully, my husband [...]

Support Women with Your Dollars

When I was growing up, I was fortunate to have strong women in my life to look up to, including my mother. So when the time came for me to start my own business, it never crossed my mind that I couldn't because I'd had so many examples of women doing big things. I was empowered by those women, and [...]

Kid Style: St. Patrick’s Day Outfit

I admit it. I'm a bad mommy. OK, not really. But every year, I forget to get my child a green outfit — or shirt, or something — for St. Patrick's Day. What can I say? Green isn't a color that's in heavy rotation in my daughter's closet. So she winds up dodging the threat of pinches every year. Not [...]

Walmart Makes Organic Baby Food Affordable

Baby Juliza likes to eat. No. Really. She has a knack for sniffing out whenever someone is eating, and she loves to sample a little something from everyone's plate. This is her "I'm about to eat" face, so excited that I couldn't get her to keep still long enough for a photo. For the most part, I'm content to let [...]

Outfit: Closet Must-Haves with Walmart

I'm Wearing: George ponte jacket | Jordache high rise super skinny jeans (aff) I can't lie to you...I'm a bit weary of winter. But this is the way it always happens, right? We wait for summer to turn into fall, then to winter so we can pull out our fancy boots and layers. Then a few months in, we're longing [...]
