Blogoversary Celebration: The Best Of – Parenting

Blog Related, Parenting 1

It kind of sucks that I haven’t developed this feature more because I love it and it’s been popular in the past. But it’s one of my goals for the coming year. Mommy Moments is really about anything related to parenting and I’d occasionally write a post about when I feel that Mother emotion, whether it’s pride, fear, sadness, or joy. I later expanded it to include guest posts from… Read more »

It’s crazy how obsessed I became with Product Reviews! Once I realized that companies wanted bloggers to help promote their products, in doing so we would get free samples, I couldn’t help myself. At first, I started reviewing anything and everything I liked. I pitched myself to brands and companies like it was a job, instead of a hobby. Whenever I got the chance to work with a brand, I… Read more »

One of my favorite things to do on this blog is write Book Reviews. I love reading books, always have, and remember my first obsession back when I was a kid. The Baby-Sitter Club. I bought all those books and read them religiously! Then the teenage years hit and reading fell by the wayside. (Remember Wayside school?! I loved that book!) Other books have come across my eyes through the… Read more »

In case you didn’t know, I am a diehard Pretty Little Liars fan. I love the books by Sara Shepard, and if it’s possible, I love the show on ABC Family, even more! Lies, drama, mystery, hot guys and beautiful girls; what’s not to love?! One of my favorite episodes of Season 1 was “Keep Your Friends Close” where there’s nothing but drama going on! Toby is blamed for Alison’s… Read more »

Here’s to More Birthdays!

Promotional 0

I’ve always been an advocate and supporter in the fight against cancer, all types of cancer. I try to do my part, donating when I can, showing my support by wearing the bands, sticking the stickers, joining in on the walks, etc. So when I learned that The American Cancer Society was seeking bloggers to help promote their “More Birthdays” campaign, I jumped at the chance! How could I not?!… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 40 – Yay! I’m 9 Months Old!

Project BG2 6

Can you believe BG2 is 9 months already?! How did that happen?! Well, she had her check-up this week. Everything is great. She’s a little over 20lbs, not as much as I want her to be, but I can’t be too picky because she’s perfectly healthy. She grew two inches in three months and it should be noted that her head circumference is well over 100% and still growing. Yep,… Read more »

The title says it all. In this book, you discover how Mara Dyer… Read more »

One of the top things I use everyday is my laptop. Can’t live without it! So, of course, I needed to get some kind of protection for it if I’m going to take it everywhere I go. Looking around for a laptop cover can be hard and daunting because there’s so much out there, but I’ve done it so many times and for so long, I pretty much know what… Read more »
