make shopping for prescription glasses a breeze with glassesUSA

GlassesUSA collage

My husband wore glasses for years and years. His frustration was evident almost on a daily basis. Frustration at the cost of glasses. Frustration at the process of getting eye exams. Frustration at scratching his expensive lenses. Rather than biting the bullet and forking over the money for new glasses, he was “content” with using his scratched glasses just to save us the money! Why do prescription glasses and sunglasses have to be so expensive!?!? THEY DON’T! With GlassesUSA, you {Read More}

TheOllieWorld_Ollie_Swaddle_Pink_Blue_Closed copy

As a veteran survivor of newborn sleep deprivation torture I knew what was coming when baby number three made his appearance. Any new parent can tell you that they will try anything that may make their little one settle down quicker, sleep longer, or even sleep at all. With this in mind I was prepared when we went to the hospital for delivery and had an Ollie Swaddle from The Ollie World packed in my bag for our new arrival. {Read More}

silk plants featured image

As much as I love the idea of a perfectly groomed lawn, lush green grass, vibrantly blooming flowers, and a picture perfect little yellow house on Main Street, it’s just not realistic in this season of my life. I can barely groom our 3 kids and keep them in clothes that aren’t 2 sizes too small because they are growing like the weeds in my yard. I must also mention that I live in California and we have a serious drought. How {Read More}

I like to take way too many pictures and I most definitely am an over sharer on FB. I know I have a terrible memory and I don’t want to forget our favorite moments. While blogging and sharing photos on social media is great, I think it’s important to have hard copies of these precious memories too. I was thrilled to work with Costco on this post. I am familiar with the photo lab at Costco. I use the one-hour photo all the time.  Even {Read More}
