You know you want to visit the Island of Misfit Toys...
Did you know that it’s the 50th anniversary of the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer television special? There will be a lot of celebrating this year for the famous reindeer and his buddies (I’m particularly excited about the set of U.S. Postal Service stamps), but what better way than to catch the whole gang live at Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical? The show will be hitting stops all over North America this holiday season, but of course ...

Can't wait for fall TV! #TiVoMom  
I have failed you. I have been blissfully enjoying my TiVo Roamio and not at all letting you in on the game. Maybe I've been enjoying it a little too much. In any case, I received a TiVo Roamio as a TiVo Brand Ambassador. By now, you probably know how cool it is… either 4 or 6 tuners, ...

Grab the Goodies from +FAAR Responsibility  can help jumpstart a conversation about the dangers of underage drinking. +Ask, Listen, Learn  #ad  
As part of the back to school season, I'm on the lookout for tech and tools to help families have a healthy and productive school year. When the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility (FAAR) asked me to take a look at a new educational app designed to help kids ages 6-9 learn about the ...

Car fans? Techies? Two tix to the New England International Auto Show are up for grabs!
When I bought my first car, my highest priority was that I didn’t want to haggle a lot over the price. Now that we’re a suburban family of four, my priorities are much different. When I got the invite to serve as a Chevrolet ...

I have always thought of Radio Shack as the place to go for random electrical parts, and the occasional gadget. It was never the place I thought to go for my Christmas shopping. So when I got the invite to “Gift Smart” with Radio Shack, I was intrigued. It turns out that Radio Shack has a wonderful range of STEM-related toys for all ages and interests. Who knew? Radio Shack sent us two products to try out. The first is a Robotics Starter Kit, wh...

Just sharing some of my favorite holiday tips... #UnstoppableMoms #ad
I wrote this post as part of my participation in a blog tour for The Motherhood on behalf of the makers of Children’s MOTRIN® and received compensation to thank me for taking the time to participate. All opinions expressed are my own. The winter holidays are my favorite time of year. I specifically love Christmas, Christmas decorations, gift giving, and time with family. But with all of that merriment, sometimes there’s a lot of stress. Too many ...

What makes you unstoppable? #ad
We are almost three weeks into the school year and even though I still feel a bit like I'm drowning, it's better than last year. Last year I felt like I started behind and never caught up. I'm going to take this as progress. Truth be told, I'm always a bit in awe of how other mothers seem to ...
