Father’s Day is quickly approaching! And if there is one thing that makes me love Briton even more, it’s watching him be a father! I am so grateful to be married to someone who loves his family so much! I always think of that Brad Paisley song “And I Thought I Loved You Then” when it comes to our relationship. Brit and I started dating in high school – study hall sweethearts – and I sure thought I loved him so much in high school! But now as we have grown older and started a family of our own it’s amazing how that love has grown! Okay, now that the mushy gushy part is over…… I am so excited to be partnering with Lord & Taylor to feature a few great ideas for Father’s Day and a great gift too! Right now, Lord & Taylor is having their Friends & Family sale, and it’s the perfect time to pick up a few gifts for that special dad in your life!
All winter long, I kind of feel cooped up in the house! I feel like we hardly see our sweet neighbors! But when the warmer weather finally breaks, you can find our family outside almost all summer long!! We love to play basketball (well, I’m horrible, but Brit and the kids love it!), take bike rides, and take Sammy on walks! I love the fun days of summer where we trade our school clothes for “comfortable clothes” in Henry’s words! If Henry had his way, he would wear “comfortable clothes” all day every day! He hates it when I make him wear “handsome clothes”! I am so excited to be partnering with Kohl’s to bring you some great activewear for you and your entire family! Kohl’s carries great brands like Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour – these are all favorite brands for our family!
Several of you have been asking for a summer capsule wardrobe with some must-have pieces for the season! I am excited to be partnering with Macy’s to bring you seventeen basic pieces and twenty different ways to style these pieces!! While separate, each pieces is a basic, when put together in an outfit, you have a timeless look! And honestly, I am seriously not the right person to ask about a minimalistic wardrobe (current closet situation = busting at the seams!), these pieces are great basics to spruce up your wardrobe!!
Summer is officially here for this tired first grade teacher!!! It’s hard to believe another school year is over and done! Not only am I looking forward to the relaxation and rejuvenation that summer brings, but I am also glad the weather has warmed up enough to wear some great summer outfits!! I am thrilled to be partnering with Bloomingdale’s to bring you four great pieces by French Connection! I am currently loving this brand!!! The quality is awesome, and the fabrics feel amazing! One piece can easily transform from a day look to an evening out!
Everyone always jokes that teachers have the BEST job because they get their summers off! Well, technically, yes, we do not have to work in the summers. (But that doesn’t mean we don’t!) Of course, we enjoy summers just as much as the next person! Summer is a time to recharge and soak up some sun and fun times! From weddings to baseball games, Kohl’s is your one stop shop for summertime essentials! I am thrilled to be partnering with Kohl’s to bring you four great looks for summer to spruce up your wardrobe! Now is the perfect time to pick up some great pieces at Kohl’s! They are having their Summer Style Event Sale! Not only can you get some great prices, but you can also earn $10 Kohl’s Cash for every $50 you spend!!

Since I am a teacher, I get asked by friends every year, “What are some gifts that teachers really like to get?” Well, honestly, we truly appreciate EVERY gift we get. And almost every teacher will be excited and appreciative of each gift no matter the monetary value! But we all do have favorite things that we love to get! I like to get a list of my kids’ teachers’ favorite things! Below are a list of some great gifts you can get the important teacher in your child’s life. (And don’t forget about the specials teachers too!)
Spring weather is officially here! I, for one, couldn’t be more excited about it!! As moms, we spend so much time worrying about packing lunches, washing laundry, and being a taxi service, that it sometimes becomes difficult to make sure we squeeze a little time in for ourselves as well! I am thrilled to be partnering with Lord & Taylor to bring your a few little purchases to treat yo’self! Now is the time to stock up with so many great prices during their Super Sale! Use code MAY to save on so many great items!!!
Happy *ALMOST* Mother’s Day to all of you beautiful mamas out there! I would not be half the person I am without my mom! My mom is a pre-kindergarten teacher and definitely ignited my passion to become a teacher. She is incredibly patient, always willing to help, and one of the best people I know! I am so excited to be partnering with Macy’s to celebrate my mom and moms everywhere!
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I thought it would be a great time to talk about three great things you can do with your mom without spending a ton of money! While getting gifts is a great way to show your mom how much you love her, I argue, that spending time with her means even more! I am thrilled to be partnering with JCPenney to bring you three simple ideas to do with your mom to let her know how much you love her! But don’t worry, if you don’t live near your mom JCPenney has got a great choice of gifts you can send to your mom too! JCPenney offers a variety of high-quality, stylish pieces at great value.
One of our favorite things to do in the summer is host a BBQ around our pool! When we moved into our house almost three years ago, I was so excited to have a pool in our backyard! Of course, while I was planning backyard BBQs in our backyard, Briton was researching the pros and cons of having a pool! <– that right there pretty much describes our personalities! I am a dreamer and Brit is my black and white! We are a good compliment to each other! We (okay, totally me more than the rest of my family!) are excited to partner with Macy’s to bring you some great looks for your whole family! Now is the time to shop for everyone in your family during the Friends & Family Sale!! You can save 30% off so many great items with code FRIEND! But hurry! The sale ends May 7!
