Welcome! I’m so happy to have you here!

  • What are the benefits of giving your child a smartphone?📱For me, it’s all about being able to stay in touch with my kids when they aren’t with me. I want to be able to reach them when they go to sports, after-school activities, friends’ houses, etc. I also think that smartphones can be beneficial for academic purposes. My son’s high school posts assignments, grades and more online that he needs to be able to access in order to be successful at school.
.
As parents, I think it’s important to sit down with our kids and discuss potential situations like how to handle bullying, emergencies, social media, etc. BEFORE we give a child a smartphone.
.
Once we decide the timing is right for our twin girls, I am happy to know that #Verizon offers a #JustKidsPlan that comes with parental controls, filters and more. Stop by a Verizon store to learn more! 💕#brandpartner
  • Summer is my favorite time of year, except for one thing….BUGS. 🐜 As soon as the weather gets warmer, alllll the bugs think that they need to camp out inside of my home. The ants and flies are annoying, but what really freaks me out are the spiders.🕷I hate squishing them, so getting rid of them is a battle.
.
That’s why I was thrilled to discover @zevoinsect. The bio-targeted formula is #WaySmarterThanBugs Simply spray the bugs and wipe up! The best part is the products are completely safe to use around kids and pets when used as directed.

  • What fun activities do you have planned for your kids this summer? My twin girls are doing a soccer camp this week and a basketball camp next month. I’m sure we’ll spend plenty of days at the pool and lake too. I have to keep them active or they just want to watch tv or be on devices. I’m sure all you parents can relate! 😊
  • What is the right age to give your child a smartphone?📱This has been a huge topic of discussion in our house! Our twin girls are 9 and they have friends who already have phones so, of course, they think they need to have one too. As a parent, it’s hard to know when it’s the right time.
.
Over the next 4 weeks, I’ll be partnering with Verizon to share my family’s experiences, along with their new, kid-friendly plan that is designed to meet the needs of kids and parents 💕 I hope you’ll join me!

  • It’s finally feeling like summer here!☀️The days have been a lot warmer which has me dreaming of the endess ice cream cones we had on our cruise🍦Yep, definitely missing that! 
Speaking of our cruise, have you read my latest blog post? If not, you’re definitely going to want to check it out! I’m sharing the Top 10 Reasons to Go to @royalcaribbean’s #PerfectDayatCocoCay, plus tons of photos from our time there. Let me know if you have any questions about the island or going on a cruise! 💕#ComeSeek #NavigatoroftheSeas
  • It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a photo of Bentley, my 4th child 🐶 I’m pretty sure he thinks he’s one of the kids. He LOVES people but he’s scared of other dogs. Recently, he’s been having some separation anxiety. I think it’s because we’ve been traveling so much. He just wants to come along! ❤️
  • Cheers to the weekend & summer vacation! 💕I can’t believe it’s already been a week since we were cruising with @RoyalCaribbean on the #NavigatoroftheSeas. I’m really missing the warm weather, ocean breeze, and frozen drinks right now! ☀️🏝🍹
  • From thrills to chills, this sums up our #PerfectDayatCocoCay! We had the best time and can’t wait to go back soon! @RoyalCaribbean #ComeSeek #NavigatoroftheSeas AD
