Nutella lovers!   This Banana Nutella Smoothie Recipe is just what you need! I’m not a breakfast person, but I’m a Nutella lover. I put this stuff on everything, so when my husband started his daily smoothie kick. I wanted to get in on the action, he makes these fantastic healthy, energy induced smoothies and I was looking for a way to make them more my style. Nutella is just so delicious, I dream of what I can eat it with. People will argue with me that Nutella is not healthy, it’s full of oils and other non-healthy ingredients. I think we can all agree…

I came up with this easy peasy DIY angel wings as a costume for Halloween. This project came from the simple idea of turning toilet paper into a costume. And because my time management skills are never on point I did this a few days before Halloween. My love for DIY and keeping it all super budget-friendly is totally my thing and I was thrilled to turn toilet paper into a fluffy pair of angel wings. These wings are the perfect prop for a Halloween costume, Christmas Angel wings or even a Valentine cherub theme. Once I made these DIY angel wings…

The Toyota Sienna review post is in collaboration with Toyota. I had the pleasure of partnering with Toyota for Fiesta 2018 in this gorgeous city I get to call home. We had the chance to test out the Toyota Sienna for two weeks while enjoying all of the Fiesta events. Being a born and bred San Antonian, Fiesta has always been more than just ten days of party. For me, it keeps the memories of being a little girl alive and a way to give back to this beautiful city. Sitting on the parade route will always bring me back to my childhood….

Yeast Infection Pregnancy Treatment post has been sponsored by MONISTAT®. All thoughts and reviews are my own. “If you are pregnant please talk with your doctor before self-diagnosing yourself.” There are quite a few things women just don’t openly talk about. A yeast infection is probably at the top of the TMI women probs list. I mean who really wants to discuss itching, burning, and irritation down there. I sure don’t sit around talking about how to get rid of a yeast infection with my friends. Where’s a girl to turn to when the inevitable happens though? Is it ok…

Today we had a lesson in how to remove wax from walls. When my four year old kicked a ball in the living room, I immediately cringed and then heard a crash. He knocked over my wax warmer and there went purple wax running down my wall. My husband freaked (he doesn’t see these kinds of disasters all day long) me on the other hand, this is just a normal day. Almost two and four-year-olds commit these acts regularly. I went into clean mode as I imagined myself at Lowe’s trying to match paint chips. We don’t even own this paint color anymore….

Maynicures Event Post has been sponsored by Clarity Child Guidance Center. As we enter Mental Health Awareness Month I encourage you to join me in raising awareness about mental illness. Kids are a big part of who I am. I knew from a very young age that I wanted a big family. When my husband and I first got married I dropped the bomb on him that I wanted A LOT of kids. Funny conversation to bring up after you’re married right? Luckily for me, he didn’t seem put off by my idea and welcomed the challenge. Four kids later and…

The best bassinet for babies post is sponsored by Delta Children. As I entered the homestretch of my last pregnancy I found myself nervously unsure of where our newborn would sleep once she arrived. My doctor recommended I rest up until 37 weeks to keep the preterm labor from starting up again. But at 36 weeks all I could do was prep to pass the time, in moderation of course. I rolled out our new Delta Children’s Gliding Bassinet into the main room of our home in preparation for my daughter’s arrival. When planning for babies essentials, I thought hard about what we needed and what we…
