Make Mealtime a Breeze with Specially Marked Tyson® (no antibiotics EVER) Chicken Products

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own.  Being a Mom is the hardest role I have ever filled. I am constantly questioning myself. Am I setting a good example for my kids? Am I making the best decisions for them? Am I spending enough quality time with them? The questions seem to never end.

Everyone’s kids and parenting styles are different, and we all just have to do what works best for us and our families. I would love to say that we should not be so hard {CONTINUE READING…}

5 Reasons Why You'll Love a Tomorrow Sleep Mattress {+ a $100 Coupon!}

I recently turned 36 years old, and I’ve been feeling my age a lot lately. The grey hairs have started popping up more frequently, I’m seeing laugh lines all over my face that were never there before, and I’ve been dealing with some serious back pain. I remember how I used to laugh at all those jokes about getting older and having back pain, but it’s really no joke! Back pain can make you feel miserable and ruin your whole day. My body has been feeling a little out of whack for a while now. Getting older, having two difficult pregnancies in the last 5 years, and losing 100 pounds really took its toll on me. The sciatic nerve pain I had {CONTINUE READING…}

Jalapeno Zucchini Cheddar Scones

These Jalapeno Zucchini Cheddar Scones are a delicious savory scone you can enjoy any time of day! It may be fall, but the weather here in Maine has been screaming “Summer’s not over yet!” this week. It actually got up to 90 degrees here yesterday, and my husband and I were completely regretting having already taken the air conditioner out of our bedroom when the temperature was still 81 degrees at 11pm last night. Even with the hot temperatures we’ve been having, I cannot get rid of this baking bug that I have. My mind is saying “It’s fall! Bake all the things!!” So, I’ve been trying to get any baking I want to do done during the early morning hours {CONTINUE READING…}
