PostHeaderIcon Wearing Contact Lenses & Eye Health with Johnson & Johnson

There are so many things that can make daily life a hassle, at least for me. Glasses are one of them. When I was 16, I started wearing contact lenses. I am now 36 and couldn’t live without them. When I do have to wear my glasses, for whatever reason, it’s a thorn in my side. The only convenience is that I can put them on and take them off at any time. I don’t have to think about rubbing my eyes etc. Acuvue Oasys has been a life saver for me.

Royal, my 12 year old, has been wearing glasses for a few years. He has already broken 3 pair. He’s a boy who does boy things so, it’s was inevitable that it would happen. He has always watched me put mine in. The most common thing I hear from him, and many others is, “I could never stick my finger in my eye.” I always laugh at this because you are not actually touching your eye. He has recently started wearing contact lenses and he loves them. He still wears his glasses off and on but, he laughs about how easy they are to put in now.

PostHeaderIcon Always Discreet Knows All About Mom Issues #AlwaysDiscreetAtTarget

After the birth of my youngest, Spencer, in 2007, I was unsure if I wanted more children. I was only 29 and I didn’t want to close that window just yet. I opted for an IUD and was thrilled to find out that one of the POSSIBLE things that could happen was….. no more cycles! I was absolutely ecstatic to learn that I was one of the lucky ones. I did not have a cycle for almost 8 years. Can you even imagine how wonderful that is in your early late 20′s, early 30′s? There was a down fall to to having kids as well. Can you sneeze without peeing a little? Oh come on, we are all adults here right? We know it happens to so many women. I am not ashamed to admit this. It is one of my “battle wounds” for my wonderful children. Yes, it can be annoying at times but, I will gladly live with it to have them in my life. It is a small price to pay!

My IUD was only good for 7 years. At 36 years old, and my sons being 7 and 12, I accepted that I wasn’t meant to have a little girl. All Mom’s want a little girl but, I decided to close the bakery for good. There would be no more buns baking in this oven. So, I went in June and I had a tubal. The removal of the IUD, of course, would put me back in the cycle stage. This was not something I looked forward to. In August and September, no cycle! I thought that I was one of those extremely rare cases when it wouldn’t come back. It turns out, October rolled around and I wasn’t so lucky. Read the rest of this entry »

I have never been much of a drinker. Mainly because I can’t stomach the smell or taste of alcohol. On the rare occasion that I actually have a drink, it is usually something that doesn’t taste like alcohol. I have seen mikes hard lemonade on the shelves many time. Like most every beverage I have tried, I can taste and not stomach the alcohol. I often look for ways to unwind after a long Mom day. Many have a glass of wine but I think a mike’s hard lemonade has become a nice way to unwind and have a #MyMikesMoment!

Mike’s Hard Lemonade Co., best recognized for its iconic mike’s® hard lemonade, is currently celebrating its 15th anniversary! They are also offering a limited edition pink lemonade seasonal flavor that’s on shelves now. I was actually pretty impressed with this. It tasted just like lemonade! That is possibly because mike’s uses real lemons – the whole lemon, including both the juice and the zest, to flavor its beverages resulting in the crispest, most refreshing taste around. If you are a baker.cook like me, you know how valuable the zest is.

Their pink lemonade starts out with a crisp, bright citrus notes and finishes tart and refreshing. Since 2009, mike’s hard lemonade has released its seasonal pink lemonade flavor each year in support of breast cancer awareness and has contributed more than $1 million to breast cancer research.

When you “drink pink,” you not only have a moment to savor for yourself, but you’ll be supporting a greater cause by helping to raise awareness for breast cancer. Send in your #MyMikesMoment, to your favorite social media outlet, and show your support. My Mikes Moment would definitely be relaxing on the front porch at night after all the kids are in bed. It doesn’t matter if it’s 10 outside, I have my trusty blanket all wrapped around me.

I used to love going shopping with my  Dad. It was always an experience. The most fun I had with him was when he was looking to buy a new truck. Car shopping was the best! He had the average Joe look about him so sales people always figure that he couldn’t afford what he was looking at. I didn’t understand why this entertained him, when I was a kid. As I got older, I began to see the humor in it. It was mostly about people judging him by how he looked.

I think the most fun I have ever had, while buying a new vehicle, was in 2002. I purchased an SUV off of Ebay. The dealer listed it very low thinking that there would be a bidding war and he would make a fortune. That didn’t happen. I remember sitting there, watching the minutes and seconds tick away. I just knew that someone was going to high bid at the last moment and win it out from under me. To my surprise, it didn’t happen! I picked up the SUV for a steal. It was located about 600 miles from where I live. When my Dad went to check it out, the guy actually tried to talk him out of buying it. We laughed about it for many years after.
