Cleveland On The Rebound

cle

Cleveland was just featured in the LA Times article "Cleveland has been on the rebound even before LeBron James news". Love him or hate him, LeBron is going to bring a lot of hype and money to our city. But this article discusses how Cleveland has been on the rebound well before we found out the news about the return of LeBron. With all of the fun tourist things to do including the museums, Botanical Gardens, zoos, etc. during the day and the night life in Ohio City, Tremont, E. 4th, etc. … [Read more...]

Cover your ears this is a total potty talk post. I live in a house with 3 boys (4 if you count my dog Walter) I am not going to get into all the dirty details (no pun intended) about bathroom habits. All I can tell you is it affects my life daily. I have a bathroom right by the garage door, so if an unexpected guest arrives I don't want them to get greeted by an offensive odor! Well now I can sleep at ease with my new PooPourri. I discovered PooPourri watching my favorite television show … [Read more...]

Love it or Hate it? Denim on Denim

Screen shot 2014-07-25 at 11.01.49 AM

I loved Kristin's last post on Denim on Denim. When I started seeing that trend last Fall I have to admit it left a bad taste in my mouth, but now I kind of love it! At first I felt weary of my denim tuxedo but it's an easy outfit to throw together, it's comfortable and the key is to break it up with accessories! It's like working with a blank canvas. What do you think of the denim on denim trend? Love it or hate it? Or how do you make it work? Denim on Denim by courtneydolinar featuring … [Read more...]

Denim on Denim – Not My Fave

denim

I just got my new issue of Glamour in the mail and took a few minutes to skim through the pages. It is ALL ABOUT DENIM! I love denim, however I do not like the denim on denim look that seems to be so popular for the fall. In case you don't know what I am talking about, an example would be wearing darker jeans with a lighter denim shirt. I saw a lot of it last spring and it just did not go over well with me. There were only a couple people (real people, not models) that I actually saw that … [Read more...]

Volunteer or Make Donations in Cleveland for a Hunger Free Summer! #HungerFreeSummer

The Boys and Girls Club uses volunteers to help serve food during lunch time.

Disclosure: This post is brought to you by ConAgra Foods Hunger Free Summer Initiative with The Motherhood. However, all opinions are my own. Summer should be a fun and carefree time for children, but for many families in Ohio, summer is when food budgets are stretched thin and children are at a greater risk of experiencing hunger. When school gets out for summer vacation, many children lose access to meals they receive during the school year. What can you do to help? When children are … [Read more...]

Binky Fairy

pacifier

My darling daughter will be three in August and was still using a binky until earlier this week just during nap and bed time. Don't laugh because it was pretty much like Pavlov's dog...when you put the binky in her mouth, she would relax, lay down, and go to sleep. It was as simple as that, and who wants to mess with a good thing? Well, she started chewing the binky for the first time when I trying to get her down for a nap a few days ago and I noticed that her teeth had made some cuts into … [Read more...]
