Roto-Rooter 101 | #RotoRooter

I have a husband and two young kids – so I know a thing or two about clogged toilets. Why is it that kids think they are not fully clean unless they use half a roll of toilet paper? I know that it can’t just be my kids who do this! The results? Lots of clogged toilets. But I cannot put the blame only on them – I shed like a dog in the middle of summer. I am honestly surprised by how much hair I still have on my head – because it ends up all over the house. And that includes our shower and sink drains. We live in an older house and while it is gorgeous – we struggle a lot with clogged drains and toilets due to older plumbing. I spent too much with a plunger or a snake down our toilets before I decided to try Roto-Rooter. I knew they were the #1 brand in plumbing services, but I just never thought to try their drain care products – until now!

7 Ways to Unwind When the Kids Are Asleep

One of the most exciting parts of the day for some parents is when their kids are asleep. As challenging and rewarding as parenting can be, sometimes parents just need a little time to relax and unwind. You don’t need to hire a sitter or ask one of your relatives to come over to watch the children. You don’t even need to leave the house.

5 Reasons to Run the Castaway Cay 5K on Your #DisneyCruise | #runDisney

I have never run a race in my life. My husband was a runner in high school though, so he is not stranger to them. I have always wanted to do a 5K or 10K – especially with Disney – so I was thrilled to learn about the Castaway Cay 5K that I could run while on my Disney Cruise! As tough as it was, it was actually a blast – and I was so proud of myself after doing it. I finished in 36 minutes, which I think is pretty good considering I was eating cruise food and enjoying wine for 6 solid days before it! I enjoyed it so much that I think I caught the running bug! I am hoping to do a run at Disney World next – perhaps the Princess Run?!?

Spring is almost here! We all know because we just lost that precious hour. If you have young kids like me, it could prove to be difficult to get yourself back in to the swing of things.

To help you (and myself) get through this time and to prepare for Spring, I have put together some items that will help you “reset” yourself in many different ways. From tracking money back guarantees, to booking vacations – all of these will help you hit refresh and reset on your life.

Colgate is the Newest Brand to Join the Amazon Dash Program | #Colgate

I have fallen in love with the Amazon Dash Button. I have mentioned it to you before, but it is a Wi-Fi connected device that reorders your favorite product with the press of a button. It is easy to set up and even easier to use! Just open up your Amazon shopping app on your smartphone to connect your home Wi-Fi network to your dash button. Once connected, a single press of the Dash Button automatically places your order with Amazon Prime free shipping – ensuring you never run out of your essentials again! I use this for several of my daily use items, so I was thrilled when I discovered Colgate signed on with the program. Colgate is my go to brand for toothpaste, mouthwash, and even toothbrushes. I know that I can trust them and being able to reorder what I need with the click of a button makes my life a lot easier!

Counseling Today: Forget the Play-Doh – Grow a Plant! | #Gardening

While much of the world got a hearty laugh out of the well-meaning gesture of college officials handing out Play Doh to students who were distraught over Donald Trump’s victory in the last presidential election, it was a nice thought. Actually, it did something to lighten the spirits of some people. However, it did little for those who were running around campuses destroying everything in sight. Some psychologists suggest that we forget therapeutic Play Doh and focus on growing plants instead. Here are just some of the reasons why gardening is actually therapeutic and great for our mental health.

Why I Love Brooklyn Bean Coney Island Caramel Coffee | #Giveaway #BBR

I am one of those people that cannot get through my morning without a cup of coffee or two. If I don’t have coffee, I just cannot function. In order to get healthier, I have recently stopped using creamer and sugar in my coffee. It sounded awful at first but thanks to Brooklyn Bean Roastery, I have been able to actually enjoy black coffee. They have so many different flavors that I feel like I am still getting variety with my coffee. One of my all time favorite flavors is their Coney Island Caramel Coffee.
