5 Things To Keep You Sane For Road Trips With Toddlers

At this point, we take a road trip almost monthly and it has definitely been a learning process. There are times when Mila will sleep the entire road trip and sometimes she'll cry the whole way there so I do my best to think of everything she'll need beforehand, that way I'm not caught by surprise or that something she wants is in the back and we have to pull over and find it. So today I've compiled a list of products that have totally made our life easier during our road trips! This post contains affiliate links.

Holiday Outfit Ideas Under $50

December is here and honestly, I don't know where the time went, so now I'm scrambling to put together outfits for all of the holiday parties that we've been invited to. Luckily I have a few pieces already in my closet that make it easy to mix and match. For 2017 the holiday season trends are velvet, metallic, embroidered pieces & anything with glitter!

Taking Time To Ourselves | Parent's Weekend Getaway


The last weekend of October Jeff & I attended WeAllGrow Familia in Los Angeles California! We decided to make it a trip just for us because we don't get a lot of non-work related time alone together. The conference would only be during the day and we would have pretty much the whole night to explore LA. This was Jeff's first time being in Los Angeles, and my first time actually getting to explore it so we took advantage of every opportunity to just soak it in and be together. None of our exploring would have been possible without Mazda graciously lending us the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring for the weekend!

How We're Owning Our Future Financially | Prudential at The Texas Conference For Women

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Prudential and DiMe Media.
However, all opinions expressed are my own.

When I decided to blog full time my husband had a full-time job that paid him well, but then the oil industry tanked and he was out of a job. That's when he decided to go full time, and then that's when we started dipping into our savings. Bring us back to the present and we're making a full-time income from our blogs, but we've completely ignored the fact that we have credit card debt and haven't invested that well into our savings. Since I'm the more level-headed one I usually get stuck with managing our money, yet I've done this thing where I completely put the credit card debt to the back of my mind and focus on keeping the current bills paid. Every time I partner with Prudential those things are brought to the forefront of my mind and feel like a mountain on my shoulders. It wasn't until they invited me to the Texas Conference for Women that I really thought, why don't I make an appointment and sit down and talk to someone that actually has the knowledge to help us? Why am I so embarrassed to say the words out loud?
