    YMCA Central Ohio - Give Her Hope

    I became a mom a little over six years ago. That day changed my entire world and was one of the best moments of my life. Motherhood can be magical, but for some moms, magical moments don’t occur as often as they wish. This Holiday season I am helping bring awareness to those moms, particularly women with children who are experiencing homelessness, by partnering with the YMCA of Central Ohio and the Give Her Hope campaign.…

    Sweet Heat BBQ Steak Philly at Charleys | MommyWifeLife

    On a typical Saturday my family and I do housework, maybe a little shopping and then to church. After church we always grab something quick to eat on our way home. Since the kids are a little on the picky side, we normally end up someplace that has chicken fingers or nuggets for the girls. Luckily, a recent Saturday out led us to Charleys, which had something for our whole family.…

    Goldfish Swim School Promotes Water Safety | MommyWifeLife

    The first day of summer is always at the end of June, but Memorial Day weekend seems to be the unofficial summer kick-off. Pools, especially in states in the Midwest, open up again for swimming. It’s also the perfect time for parents and children to be reminded of water safety tips, which is why May is National Water Safety Month. According to the Centers for Disease Control, drowning is the leading cause of accidental injury deaths among children ages one to four. Goldfish Swim School hosts an event to help prevent such incidents.…

    Macy's Men's Health Event at Easton

    My husband and I both turned 30 this year. Rumor has it that many things will change while we are living life as 30-something year old, including our bodies. This gives us every reason to be become proactive and get fit. We currently eat out more than we should and I will take the blame. As a wife, and mom, I feel a responsibility to keep my family’s health on track. The last thing I desire for my husband is to see him unhealthy and sick. I need him to be around for a long time–for me, our kids, and for himself. Macy’s is backing me up on this one in a way I never expected.

  • You Are Invited to the Macy’s Back to School Shopping Party

    Join me at the Macy's Back to School Shopping Party

    When I think of the 90’s I think of an era where being a kid was fun and life seemed to be simple. I loved 90’s fashion, although most of it is now laughable, 90’s family sitcoms and 90’s music. It was simply a great time to be alive and even Macy’s knows it. We are going back to the 90’s this back to school season and you are invited to join the fun.

    As a kid, back to school shopping was always fun and an event we looked forward to every year. Most years my aunt, who is the ultimate shopper, would take the stress away from my mom by spending a day with us as we shopped for and tried on new wardrobes. Macy’s was always on our list of stores to visit because we knew we could make our money stretch with the deals they often had.…
