Drop Your Pants for Underwareness | Your Social Posts Help Charity

Many thanks to Depened for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging people to #dropyourpants for #underwareness. Age, childbirth, illness and various surgeries can all lead to the need for a “different kind of underwear”. After the birth of my last baby my OBGYN was very concerned that I might have serious issues as well. Apparently during my c-section she found that my bladder had adhered to my uterus. She was able to separate them, but it … [Read more...]

#LetsTalkBums, Shall we? How do YOU Wipe Your Bum?

This post is brought to you by Cottonelle. Let’s talk about bums. Why not? We all have them, right? When our children are still in diapers we trust every diaper change to baby wipes. The moist toilette always cleans up the mess quickly and without causing irritation. So, why when they potty train do we do anything different? I’ve potty trained four children, two of which are boys. From my experience, these little guys tend to have a … [Read more...]

Dove Is On A Self Esteem Mission | The Real Truth About Beauty

Anxiety about beauty begins at an early age, and can even keep girls from doing what they love. As a young pre-teen I loved my tap and ballet class. I was the chubby girl that always had a smile on her face but was crying on the inside. I slowly began to withdraw because of off handed comments about my weight, or how I couldn’t do a specific tumbling skill correctly because of my belly. I was the girl that finally dropped out because I didn’t … [Read more...]

Dove Let’s Talk | Building Young Girls Confidence & Self Esteem | Teach Them What REAL Beauty Is | #spon

6 out of 10 girls stop doing what they love because they feel bad about their looks. I was one of them! I worked so hard for so long to finally make the high school drill team. I was still a bigger girl, but I made it! Half way through the season my low self esteem won. I felt like I wasn’t good enough, didn’t fit in, didn’t belong... and I dropped out. I am determined to break that cycle with my own girls. The media has created this false … [Read more...]

Premier Protein | Sustain Your Energy & Curb Your Hunger

I have been on the go a lot lately. Some days I don’t have time to sit down to eat for long stretches at a time. It’s not a great idea to not eat and other options (like a drive thru) can be total junk and not beneficial to you at all. I’ve started carrying a protein bar with me for times like this. It may seem like such a small amount of food, but it totally stops my stomach from growling and gets me through until the next meal time. Premier … [Read more...]

TXTNG & DRIVING | AT&T’s “It Can Wait” Campaign

“Reading a text is like driving blind.” I will admit it... I have been known to try to text a few words while driving. I’ve heard the horror stories, but I have finally found my reason to stop texting & driving. If you have a few minutes I highly encourage you to watch this YouTube Video The Last Text: AT&T Documentary. I have taken the pledge and will no longer text while driving. NOTHING is that important... and if it is, I will pull … [Read more...]
