The Importance of Supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post to share information about supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The Walmart gift cards and information have been provided by P&G.   All moms worry about their children. Some worries are small, others carry an enormous weight. Right from the beginning, I’ve worried about the health and wellbeing


Healthy Breakfast Fuel

I’m often asked where my toddler gets all of her energy.  Most of the time I say, “I don’t know.”  The truth is, I wonder about all her energy, especially on the days I’m dragging behind.  While I can’t take all the credit for fueling her for the day, I can say


We Had a Stellar Time Watching Men In Black 3 on Vudu! #SeeMIB3 #CBias

Remember how I told you we pre-purchased Men In Black 3 at Walmart?  Because we did that, we were able to register our copy on Vudu to have digital access starting on November 16, 2012 even though the Blu-ray/DVD doesn’t release until November 30th.  As we got closer to our viewing party last


How to Pre-Order Men in Black 3 & Watch it on Vudu Before Release Day! #SEEMIB3

Having seen the first two MIBs and being a fan of Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, I’m definitely looking forward to the seeing Men in Black 3.  It’s hard to believe how long it has been since the first movie came out, but I can’t NOT watch it.  I need to know

Family Movie Night With The Avengers and MarketSide Pizza #MarvelAvengersWMT #CBias

As you may know, The Avengers movie is near and dear to my heart. I feel pretty invested in it besides the fact that I just love the movie. Before it came out in theaters in May, I had the opportunity to screen The Avengers at the Tribeca Film Festival, interview Tom


Donating Books For Kids Makes a Difference #NickCFK #CBias

Last week I told you I was up to something… something good!  I was working on a mini-book drive to help local children in need get access to books.  Books are important in our home – we all read.  Rissa has a fairly impressive library of her own for a toddler.  When


Connecting as a Family Over Dinner and a Game Night #DipDipHooray #CBias

One thing my dad always stressed when I was growing up was the importance of having dinner together. It was the one time no one was allowed to take phone calls. As I grew up and life became busier, it was the one time of day we could count on to connect


Why I’m Helping Local Kids Get Books #NickCFK #CBias

Long ago, I once read that there’s a correlation between how well kids do in school and the amount of books in their homes. If a child has access to more books and develops an interest in reading, it will help them with learning and studying. If a child doesn’t have books


How to Save Money & Capture Memories While Donating School Supplies #BagItForward #CBias

I’m so glad to be part of #BagItForward again this year. Last year I donated back to school supplies to Joplin, my nephew, and to my sister-in-law’s classroom as part of the campaign. When I was younger, my family received community assistance, which was appreciated even if it was kind of

We’re Spinning Into Action to Help Local Children Have Great Smiles #CBias #SocialFabric

The very first time I participated in a Champions for Kids Simple Service Project was last December.  At that time I shared a little about my family receiving community assistance when I was younger.  I used to be embarrassed about it, but not anymore.  Being embarrassed makes it seem like we did something

In-Store Skin Hydration With Dial™ NutriSkin™ Lotion #CBias #DialNutriSkin

Dry skin is no fun, especially in winter.  I actually get weirded out  if my skin feels too dry.  I’ll obsess about it until I can get my hands on some!  Well, I knew there was going to be an in-store demo of Dial™NutriSkin™ at the Walmart by my parents house last weekend.  I would be

Is Your Child Prepared for a Winter Emergency? #EnergizerCFK #ChampionsforKids #CBias

Did you know that accidents are the leading cause of death of children? Severe weather can cause hundreds to thousands of people to be harmed in some way.
