Fall Fashion with Lee Jeans


(Disclosure: I received the products featured below in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.)



Does it feel like fall where you live? I think it's slowly starting to creep it's way into Texas and I'm beyond ready for it! Fall is my favorite fashion season, and this year I'm starting off fall right! 

Lee Jeans is my favorite go to brand when it comes to denim and I couldn't wait to get my hands on a pair of brand new jeans! There is just something about putting on a new pair of jeans for the first time - it's an amazing feeling!

Our 4th Walk with Autism Speaks


This past Sunday we participated in our 4th walk with Autism Speaks! So far, we've walked with family and friends at the Abilene Zoo, Grand Prairie Park, Texas Motor Speedway and the Globe Life Park!

It was a little crowded this year since the walk was in doors but it was great to see everyone! We can't wait to do it again next year!

Mini Pumpkin Muffins



I think the weather is finally cooling off here in Texas (crossing my fingers for no more 100 degree days this year) and pumpkin everything has arrived! It's everywhere and I love it but I have to really be in the mood for it to fully enjoy it. These simple Mini Pumpkin Muffins are full of flavor and will be sure to please your "pumpkin hungry" crowd this season! My family really enjoyed them and I hope yours do too!

What He Wore - Back To School With Kmart



“Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Kmart through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about Kmart’s back-to-school apparel collections, all opinions are my own.”



It's back to school time! Did the summer fly by for anyone else?! This is a big year for my son, not only is he going into fourth grade, this is also his last year at the elementary school. I know it will be a great year for him, even though I might be a little emotional, my tears won't slow him down any - he's growing up so fast! 

I'm so excited to send him on his first big day looking comfortable and cool thanks to Kmart! At Kmart you will find everything you need to get your child, teen or college student ready for school! You will find school supplies, dorm gear, shoes, clothes and so much more - all at an affordable price!

A Big Brother C Update



It's been a while since I've done a Big Brother C update and I'm hoping to get back on track and do them more often. Ideally once a week, but we will see how it goes. 

So we are all back in school and have adjusted pretty well to the back to school schedule. This week has been an off week for him, normally on school days he goes to bed between 7:30-7:45 and gets up anywhere from 6 to 6:30. He's been wanting to sleep in lately, (maybe going through a growth spurt?) but unfortunately our schedule during the week doesn't allow for him to sleep in. So I've been finding myself dragging him out of bed at 6:45 to make it out the door on time at 7:30.

Doctor On Demand


(Disclosure: I was provided a coupon code to experience Doctor On Demand for free. Additional compensation was received, however, all opinions are 100% my own!)



Now that school is in session, I'm just waiting for that first dreaded phone call from the nurse. The one that states that one of my children are not feeling well. Schools are full of germs, and while hand washing is important and highly recommended, it's bound to happen that your little one will come down with something.

Whether its the common cold or cough, sore throat, flu, pink eye or an upset stomach. When our kids don't feel good, we want to do everything possible to get them back on the right track! It's not fun business when your not feeling well and the last thing you want to do is go sit in a doctor's office with other sick people. 

Well today, that changes! I'm so excited to introduce Doctor On Demand

Why You Should Try A Spending Freeze



Just in time for the holidays, I've been seeing "Spending Freeze's" pop up in my social media news feeds. What are they exactly? Well, it's a time frame consisting of a few weeks or months where unnecessary spending is not allowed.

Now hear me out - I'm not saying you can't spend any money at all. A spending freeze just suggests the basics for that time frame. No eating out, no splurge's at Target or ToysRus, etc. I'll be honest, I've never done a spending freeze, I'm a big shopper. I love a good sale or deal and even better when I have a coupon for it, or I find a free shipping code. I don't crazy shop but when it comes to the kids, I enjoy shopping for them instead of myself.

Big Brother C is my electronic kid, he has loved his iPad since day one and uses it for a variety of things!

However, he does have a favorite shows and educational games on there that he does enjoy watching and playing when he gets a chance! I've found a few apps we really love (and are FREE), so I thought I'd share!
