I received tickets to CINDERELLA in exchange for bringing you the details of the show and my thoughts following attendance. All opinions are 100% my own.
Back in the 1980s, I had an obsession with Rodgers + Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA in the way of the 1965 made for TV movie with Leslie Ann Warren as the leading lady. When I found out that this classic tale with a few twists and surprises was coming to Pittsburgh, I knew I had to go and take my mom along. We were delighted to be guests at Heinz Hall last night for opening night!

Recently, my husband came down with what I lovingly call the Man Cold and what he calls allergy season. No matter how careful I might have been to keep myself and the ‘lil Burghers away from the germs, I still needed to clean over and over just in case it was something we could catch. That’s when I learned about the NEW Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes with Ultra Strength Blue Fibers and got to cleaning everything in sight.
I was asked to share information on the Yinzer 5k and Lil’ Yinzer here on my blog. As I love running and our city and organizations doing good things, I agreed to let yinz know about this event!
Light of Life Rescue Mission is holding their fun run to benefit their mission (to “provide a home for the homeless and food for the hungry, and will build disciples for the Kingdom of God among the poor, addicted, abused and needy”). The event on June 16, 2018 will include a 5k run and a fun run (less than one mile) for the kids.
I was sent a Timolino Tazza mug in exchange for my honest opinions.
It’s a cool, rainy evening here and I’ve had my share of coffee and even tea to get me through the day. Usually as a mom of four I find my hot drinks a bit lukewarm. That’s not the case when I’m drinking from my Timolino Tazza mug as it is designed to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold! This tumbler comes from Timolino’s line of contemporary lifestyle drinkware and lived up to its reputation when I drank from it.
Verizon Tech provided me with products for the purpose of testing and sharing my experience. All opinions expressed in this post are 100% my own.
If you are planning a spring (or summer) getaway, what are you packing as you plan your travel adventure? I absolutely must pack technology even when vacations are a time to get away from it all. There’s always a plan to blog more (especially now that I have a second blog), so I do usually bring my computer, but the technology I must bring along is usually geared toward making the trip a bit more hassle-free and fun, bonus points if it’s an active trip!
There is something incredibly special about the Mother’s Day gifting of hand-drawn cards and hand-picked flowers from my kids. And I am sure that my own Mom enjoyed these sentimental things, too.
Mother’s Day Gifting
As the kids get older, I know those sweet gifts will be received less and less. Mother’s Day gifting really changes through the years, even as a mom myself, I’m not great at remembering to pick up something nice for my mom and mom-in-love when their holiday comes around.
One of my mom’s most treasured pieces of jewelry is her mother’s ring. She has two, one for me/Greg/my brother and another for her grands. Both are stunning, so when US Family Guide asked if I’d be interested in working with Mama’s Jewelry to share their collection of mothers rings, I just had to say yes.
How can it be? Today is a big day for two ‘lil girls, our twins are three!
These girls have truly changed our lives, keeping us on our toes ever since the day they were born. Both bring so much love and joy to our family, it’s hard to imagine that three years ago we had no idea what we were in for.
We received a set of Eclipse Curtains in exchange for our honest review. All opinions, as always, are 100% our own.
When you have a house full of kids who are totally the younger sister from a certain movie about ice and sisterly love and they believe if the sun is up they are up…having reduced light and noise is a true blessing. The twins had been struggling with Daylight Savings Time when our package from Eclipse Curtains arrived with blackout panels for their room. Call it an early birthday present for dad and mom, these beauties have made a difference!
We were sent the Wise ‘Ol Owl Blackboard Calculator in exchange for our honest review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
Learning got a ‘lil more fun around here for Evan and the twins with the Wise ‘Ol Owl Blackboard Calculator from Singing Machine. With three different languages and the basic math functions, there are plenty of learning opportunities for my ‘lil ones.
