Smooth Shave Moisturizing Leg Scrub

 Smooth Shave Moisturizing Leg Scrub 1

Now that the weather is getting cooler, my skin is getting drier. I hate the tight and itchy feel of having dry skin. It gets even worse when I shave, plus my skin doesn’t feel as smooth as it should. Over the years I’ve tried all sorts of things to get smoother legs, but nothing really helped. I was on a mission to get the smoothest, most moisturized legs I could get. I found a regiment that works great and my legs are perfectly smoothed. Having smooth legs during the colder weather is always a plus (wink wink). Here … Read More

Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloins

Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin 1

It’s very rare in my house that you’ll find a dish with pork. I don’t eat pork, but my husband and son do. My husband knew this before he married me, but he didn’t care. For the most part, he’s adapted his diet to mine and I love him for it. It’s not that I’ve never eaten pork or cooked it. I have and I definitely do know what I’m missing. When I want to do something special for my husband I’ll cook him pork chops or tenderloins or even pork bacon. Since he loved the Smithfield Pork Tenderloin that … Read More

5 Ways To Keep The Romance In Your Marriage


We are a military family, so my husband and I spend a lot of time apart. Since we started dating about six years ago we’ve spent almost half of that time apart. We were separated by two deployments, military school, training, and pcs moves. Sometimes it was hard, especially after we had kids because trying to explain to a one year old why their daddy can’t be there is harder than you would think.  

It’s taken a lot of work and commitment, but our marriage is as wonderful as can be! I want to share how we stay … Read More

Excited About Potty Training with Pull-Ups®


We’ve been on a potty training mission for a while. Kaiden is my first, so it has been a learning experience for the both of us. I started potty training him when he was about 18 months. I was determined to have him potty trained by the time he was 2. Even though his second birthday has come and gone, he still isn’t fully ready to be in big boy underwear. However, I do see a lot of progress.


When we first began, I had to introduce him to the pot. That part was pretty easy. Since he always followed … Read More

Pecan-Crusted Peppercorn Pork Tenderloin with Stuffing

Pecan-Crusted Peppercorn Pork Tenderloin 1

We’ve been very busy the past few weeks with late appointments and errands. This has caused me to throw meals together for my husband and son and I admit that some of them haven’t been too great. I know that I should’ve planned my meals a lot better, but so much has been going on that it slips my mind. I was in need of a meal under 30 minutes and that they both would love to eat.

I’m glad I found the Smithfield line of marinated pork at my local Food Lion. For the month of September all of … Read More

Celebrating a First Half Birthday: Kaleb

Kaleb 1

My baby just turned six months! Boy, how the time flies! It seems not too long ago that he was still in my belly just growing away. Watching him grow from then until now is so amazing. He’s scooting everywhere and gets on his hands and knees and does his best to start crawling. Three years ago I never thought I’d be a momma to one little boy and two years ago I never thought I’d be a momma to two. Going from a mom of one to a mom of two little boys has been amazing! I thought I was … Read More

Believe In Heroes® Wounded Warrior Project® Campaign

Believe In Heroes® Wounded Warrior Project® 1A

I am a third generation Army veteran and my husband is currently an active duty Army Officer. When my husband and I got married in 2011, I never imagined that we would be separated by two deployments during both of my pregnancies. I received so much support from other spouses who have been in the same situation and was able to keep it together as much as one can while going through a deployment.

Even though I received a lot of support, I couldn’t help but worry about my husband being in Afghanistan, Kuwait, and any other country he had … Read More
