Fun in the Sun with FabKids

Disclosure: I received an outfit from FabKids in exchange for this review but all opinions are my own. After eight straight days of cold, depressing rain, I started pricing out building materials for an ark. But then on the ninth day, the sun shone once again. And what a gorgeous day it was! Bright sun, a light breeze, and no humidity. Too nice of a day to stay inside. So as soon as my girls got off the school bus I scooped them up and took them to the little playground downtown. They had so much fun running around, soaking up the sun and dancing in their adorable FabKids outfits! So what is FabKids? FabKids is a personalized shopping experience that gives you access to high-quality, fashionable, and super affordable kids clothes and …

Tasty Tuesday: Incredible Inside Out Grilled Cheese

Tasty Tuesday – Incredible Inside Out Grilled Cheese [recipe]

Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? In honor of this momentous occasion I decided to share my favorite, most unbelievably-good grilled cheese sandwich recipe ever. A grilled cheese sandwich can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it. I used to make a “normal” grilled cheese… two pieces of bread, some cheese in the middle. Sometimes if I was feeling fancy I’d use goat cheese or brie in place of the american or cheddar jack cheese. Then a few months ago I found a recipe online for inside out grilled cheese, where you add shredded cheese to the outside of your sandwich to create this delicious, crunchy, cheesy crust. OMG my life was changed forever. So amazing. Once I perfected the inside out grilled cheese …

What’s in my Geocaching “Go Bag”?

Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links to products or services I think are worth sharing. By making purchase through these links, I receive a tiny commission which helps to fund my margarita habit (and maybe an occasional date night). Thank you. After many, many geocaching trips, I have made a science of packing the perfect “go bag” (a smallish, drawstring backpack) so that when we get the urge to go geocaching we can just run out the door. Truthfully, the only thing you REALLY need to is a smartphone or a GPS unit and the coordinates to a cache. But I have found the items below that are extremely helpful to have when you go geocaching.

DisneySide

Hosting a #DisneySide Party for Children of All Ages

Disclosure: My Mommy Brain received free products from Disney and Mom Select to host a #DisneySide @Home Celebration. We also received dried fruit snacks from Brothers-All-Natural and coupons from Crunch Pak for free Foodles. All opinions expressed here are my own. Post contains affiliate links. My girls were thrilled I was selected to host a #DisneySide @Home Celebration! We were especially happy to learn that our theme was “Disney Villains”. Opening the Disney Side box was very exciting for the girls, and for our dog Sparky, too. They couldn’t wait to dig in and see what was provided for the party. In our box we found all sorts of good things, including invitations, decorations, themed plates, cups, napkins and a tablecloth in the Maleficent color scheme of black, purple, and green. A Mickey …

Five Tips to Protect Yourself from Theft [review JLeer jeans giveaway]

Five Tips to Protect Yourself from Theft [review JLeer jeans giveaway]

Disclosure: I was provided a pair of JLeer jeans in exchange for an open and honest review. All opinions are my own. A friend recently had her purse stolen while shopping. She turned away from her cart for just a few seconds to put something back on the shelf, and when she turned around it was gone. Less than 5 seconds is all it took for her life to be turned upside down. Everything was in there. Her cell phone, keys, checkbook, license, credit/debit cards, photos, and address book filled with all kinds of personal information. Everything that you don’t want a stranger to get their hands on. Until my friend’s experience, I’d never given much thought to theft. I mean I know it happens all the time, but “not to me”. And I’m …
