Provide a safe internet for your family with Mobicip

(Disclosure: I am so excited to share Mobicip with all of you, I received compensation for this post, however all opinions are my own!)

As a parent I want to be able to provide my children with safe internet access - anytime & anywhere. We are a technology family, we own a smart tv, laptop, a touch screen computer, iPhone's , iPad's & more, the internet is everywhere & gets used daily. I shouldn't have to worry about what my children might encounter when they are watching their favorite cartoons, surfing the internet or playing their favorite games online. 

I was recently introduced to Mobicip & after visiting their website, I couldn't wait to find out more about this amazing app! Mobicip provides a safe internet for kids, not just your family & children, but it allows parents & teachers to protect children from harmful & unhealthy content.

Minky Couture Review and Giveaway

My children love to cuddle, they love snuggling up on the couch watching movies or just relaxing with a good book. Majority of the time, they are wrapped up in their favorite blanket, both of my kids own quite a few blankets but they each have their own "favorite". That favorite goes everywhere, in the car, on the couch, to grandma's, etc. Well thanks to Minky Couture, we ALL have a new favorite blanket in our house, we can't get enough of our brand new designer blanket!

Tips on keeping your electric bill low

Summer time in Texas is no joke, the heat is on full force & I learned pretty quickly that I needed to watch our electric bill not only year round but especially in the summer months. We've lived in our home for about two years & trust me when I say it doesn't take much for my electricity to double if not triple in the summer months. Scary right?!

The summer months are a busy time, everyone is out for school, your family is spending more time at home, more time going in & out - letting the cool air out & the heat in & for about three months, it's just hot, hot, hot.

School and Teachers

So let's talk school, specifically special education. It's teacher appreciation week, a great time to honor the teachers in your child's life. We've been honoring teachers for as long as I can remember, at just three years old Big Brother C started school. Three. Three years old. Let that sink in for a moment...

When my son was diagnosed the last thing I thought about was school or special education, he was getting therapy & school was just not something on my mind, nor did I realize he qualified to start school so young.

Taco Salad #EasyWeekNightMeal

If you asked my family what our favorite cuisine was it would be mexican all the way! Seriously, we could eat tex-mex & mexican food seven days a week! We try not to eat out a lot, it saves me money if I prepare meals for my family, plus I like to get my kids involved in the kitchen & it gathers us all around the table every evening!

How are you celebrating Mom this Mother's Day? #IntelAIO

#spon: I am in a partnership with Intel. Through this partnership I gain access to content, product, or other forms of value.

Mother - one who loves & cares for her children, to watch over, to nourish & protect. When I think about my Mother, my Grandmother & myself as a Mother, all of those terms & more come to mind. I'm so blessed to call my Mom my best friend & I'm even more blessed to have two children of my own who call me Mom.
