Celebrating Girl Empowerment with Verizon FiOS #PlayLikeaGirl

Posted by on Nov 19, 2013 in Be Informed, Looking Home | 0 comments

My sister and I, along with my daughter and her best friend were about halfway through the 2013 Kids Adventure Challenge. We had huffed and puffed our way up staircases, through woods, under cargo nets, and through a series of challenges to get to the edge of a field. Spotting the next checkpoint, I told my 8-year-old daughter Madi and her BFF...

Everyone Deserves a Miele…#pureairblog

Posted by on Nov 7, 2013 in Be Informed, Looking Home, Savvy Advice | 0 comments

Thank you Miele for sponsoring this post. I think everyone has a dirty part of their house that drives them bonkers. Pet hair on sofas, dust that collects at the bottom of curtains, cobwebs in tall corners, or my personal pet peeve…the crumbs and dirt that appear on my floors daily. Whatever it might be, everyone deserves an opportunity to...

Meeting the Marin: A first look at the Miele #pureairblog Canister Vacuum!

Posted by on Oct 31, 2013 in Be Informed, Be Inspired, Looking Home, Savvy Advice, Things We Love | 1 comment

Thank you Miele for sponsoring this post.  Shortly after I returned home from my #pureairblog adventure with Miele, I found these two boxes sitting on my front porch. I wanted to pop them open immediately, but I sat on my hands until the kids were in bed that night so that my husband and I could unpack in...

The Solution to “Help! I’m Drowning in Kid Art Projects!” {Artkive}

Posted by on Oct 2, 2013 in App Love, Be Informed, Be Inspired, Looking Home | 0 comments

We are barely into our first month of school with the kids, and I’m already buried in school papers. Permission slips, spelling tests (pre and post), worksheets, and plenty of art projects. I love seeing what my kids are learning and doing and making, but the clutter…oh, the clutter. It is sort of like stepping into...

Thank you Miele for sponsoring this post. “Watch this”, Jessica said confidently, as she started up the shiny black upright vacuum. The cluster of bloggers pulled in close, camera phones at the ready, and watched as the front of the vacuum cleaner sealed tightly as the motor started to whir. “Ohhhh”, we all breathed,...

Reboot your Lemonade Stand for Summer 2013 with ID’s Iced Coffee! {Free Printables!}

  My kids ask to have a lemonade stand at least every other day during the summer. There is something impossibly cool (and beyond my understanding) to dance around at the end of the driveway screaming at every person and car that goes by…”Lemonade! Buy our lemonade!” Honestly, I have a few problems with lemonade stands....

What Inspires You? Fresh flowers…vanilla coffee…grinning kids? #whatsyourid

I love this quote. So often I sit around, waiting for inspiration to find me, and complaining when I don’t feel it magically appearing. Instead, I should be out there hunting it down, capturing it, and hanging on for dear life. Plus, inspiration is everywhere…in the dew-covered grass, in the twinkle of an eye, or even in a cup of...

Beat the winter blues with a brand new Wii! {It’s a giveaway!}

Beat the winter blues with a brand new Wii! {It’s a giveaway!}

I grew up playing Frogger with a little black controller with one red button. Gritting my teeth in determination, I would whip the controller back and forth, making sure the little green guy didn’t get smushed by speeding race cars or careening logs. The graphics were pixelated, the television was about 20 inches wide, the cartridges were...

10 Tips for Safe & Fun Snow Play!

10 Tips for Safe & Fun Snow Play!

One of my favorite movies, White Christmas, has a scene where the main characters are singing (in a train car, nonetheless) about snow. They sing, “Where it’s snowing All winter through That’s where I want to be Snowball throwing That’s what I’ll do…” While it does seem a bit odd that adults are singing...
