This blog post is part of a paid SocialMoms and The Cheesecake Factory blogging program. The opinions and ideas expressed here are my own. The first day I ever discovered cheesecake, I was the age my daughter is right now.

Carter’s Fall Fashion Trends (Now In Sizes 7-12!) #CartersFallStyle

Kid's Fall Fashions Carters

The very first outfit my daughter ever wore was a super cute Carter's dress, which, at 3 days old, became one of my go to kid's clothing brands for her. Carter's is the largest branded marketer of young children’s apparel in the U.S. so I was able to find them wherever we were, even when we traveled cross country. They were there through bottles and diapers, and I admit to dabbing a tear when … [Read more...]

I recently checked out a first look trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road (below), which was just released at San Diego Comic-Con 2014. I watched it without knowing anything about Mad Max. Looking at the title I thought it could have been a video game turned into a movie. Turns out it was a popular movie in the late 70's- early 80s starring Mel Gibson (one of my favorite actors and … [Read more...]

I attended the Electronic Entertainment Expo...and it was glorious!  For years I’ve watched E3 coverage on TV and on my XBox, longing for the day that I would get to be there in person.  And it finally happened!

DennysDiner00

This is a sponsored post for Denny's as a Denny's Diner Ambassador. All thoughts are my own. My baby is about to start 2nd grade in just a few weeks, and summer is coming to an end. I know my time with Sofia is limited, so I try to throw in some Mother-Daughter days, where we do things like get our nails done and have a "lady lunch."

Design Barbie Dresses

This is a sponsored post with Barbie. All thoughts are my own.   Sofia is a month away from turning 7. Wow. My baby is about to be 7 yrs old, where did the time go? Everyday, when I talk to her or play with her, I see just how much she has grown from the day before, even though I could swear it was just yesterday I was cradling her to sleep in my arms. In so many ways, she is still … [Read more...]

I grew up with all the Disney classics, and I can’t deny that I get excited when I hear about a new Disney movie, especially now that I have kids!

Soon after Planes released, it was announced that a sequel was already in … [Read more...]
