Review: Mark-My-Time Digital Bookmark

Reviews 1

Reading has definitely become an important part of my daughter’s life, and a routine we do daily, so it was pretty cool when I found out about the Mark-My-Time Digital Bookmark by My Toy Smart. It is a digital timer & bookmark in one, which is great because it’s easy to carry around and use. I recently had the privilege of testing one out and I have to say it’s… Read more »

Hooray! In this week’s entry of The Bump Tales, I’m officially 7 months pregnant! Only a little over 2 months left and I get to meet my precious new baby. I’m so excited! How does my BUMP look to you?!?! Is it getting bigger? People keep saying I’m getting too big. This week I had to go to my monthly OB/GYN appt and this time it was at a new… Read more »

Well, I gave in and decided to get a new layout design for my blog. It was one of the things on my Christmas Wishlist, and I’m happy I can cross it off the list. Since it was a Blogoversary this month I figured I might as well treat myself, and my blog, to a nice makeover and I’m so happy I’m a follower of Wacky Jacqui’s Designs because she’s… Read more »

If there is one thing that my daughter loves, it’s STICKERS. Everywhere we go, if she sees stickers, she wants them and she’ll stick them just about anywhere if we don’t tell her not to! She especially loves to put them on clothes and people, but of course, they don’t usually stick long. That’s why I was happy to come across GrabAScab. GrabAScab stickers patches are made of a special… Read more »

Book Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Book Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★

Since I’m a sucker for reading most books from the New York Times Bestsellers list, I decided to give this book a try. Although it definitely had its high points, and the love story was sweet and sincere, I didn’t really care for the book so much. I often got distracted and felt like it was dragging on, the only thing keeping me interested was the moments that Grace and… Read more »

One of the Hardest Parts of Being a Mom

One of the Hardest Parts of Being a Mom

BG1, Parenting 9

We’ve all been there before, yelling at our kids or disciplining them because it’s the right thing to do, only to have your heart hurting on the inside because you love them so much you don’t want to yell at them or make them sad or mad. Even the toughest of moms will agree that looking at your child with that sad face or when they’re crying is definitely something… Read more »

Welcome once again to another entry in my pregnancy diary, The Bump Tales. This is my last week as a 6 monther, yay, and I couldn’t be happier. Right now my belly is quite big and I’m ready to tell people I’m in my last trimester because everyone thinks I’m about to pop already! Sigh, I wish I carried small like other women, but alas, I’m a big girl when… Read more »

Book Review: Wake by Lisa McMann

Book Review: Wake by Lisa McMann

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

“Wake” is the first book in the Dream Catcher Series by Lisa McMann. Reading the synopsis in the back of the book got me really interested in this story. Entering someone’s dream, I’m sure, has always been a secret wish of many people out there. I suppose I should have looked at the pages before I thought about reading the book. The style of the book is written based on… Read more »

I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I started this blog. Sure I was a bad blogger at first, only posting whenever I wasn’t too lazy, but that was basically because I didn’t have anything to write about! Now that I’ve been home for over 4 months I’ve recently restarted blogging here again and it’s great. I really fell in love with it again and I’ll definitely do… Read more »

So Bummed…

So Bummed…

On My Mind 4

I’m so bummed out right now. As you all know, I didn’t pass my COMP exam in November, which totally sucks, but I still have another shot to take it. I was thinking I would be able to take the exam again in January since that’s when all the other re-takers are doing it, but for some reason that the school won’t tell me, they won’t allow me to take… Read more »
