DIY Hanging Lantern Nautical Light Fixture

I have been doing a lot of renovating on my house and making upgrades to everything. I live on the Gulf Coast and my house has a beachy feel to it, so I was looking for a simple light fixture to go in my small hallway. Since it is small, I wanted the fixture to have a big impact. I don’t want anything extravagant, just something that people will notice when they walk through. It will be on the way to the guest bedroom and bathroom, so it will be seen often.


30-Day Get Picky Challenge with Fiber Choice

I felt fine as I went in for a routine checkup with my doctor. There was nothing out of the ordinary to really make me think that I had any health issues going on but the doctor wanted to talk. I started to feel nervous, because when is a “talk” with a doctor ever great news? I had really high triglycerides. At first I didn’t even know what that meant. That sounded like a compliment to me, not a problem! The doctor told me that medical treatment is usually recommended for levels much lower than mine. Oh boy, this must be pretty bad then. I was in a serious state of shock and felt overwhelmed.


Family Beach Day

There is nothing more exciting than spending the day at the beach with family and friends. The cool feeling of the white sand and the ocean breeze… ahh, perfect.


Product Review and Back-to-School Giveaway! Goodbyn

  Back-to-school is around the corner and everyone is starting to do their shopping for school supplies, backpacks, lunch boxes and clothes! Or at least you are starting to think about it after seeing the stores putting out all their back-to-school goods. We have partnered with Goodbyn and are doing a giveaway for some of their items that we personally love that will help you to acquire some of the things you will need. We all know how costly it can get this time of year, so what better than the chance to win something your child needs?! And if you don’t win, we also have a special promo code just for you Modern Day Moms – and dads – out there so that you can use to purchase the products for less. Every little bit helps! I pack my 7 year old son’s lunch for school because I like to know that he is offered something fresh and healthy every day. And I also like to see how much he is eating because then I will know if he has grown tired of something that he usually likes. Face it, we all get burnt out on certain foods after a while, right?  The Goodbyn Hero food bin and Dipper set are perfect for him as he loves a variety of foods for each meal. All dry food can stay in the Hero bin while anything wet (yogurt, etc) can go in the dipper to avoid any possibility of spillage because if any of his foods mix, my son refuses to eat them and I don’t want him starving throughout the day. An empty stomach deters focus and we don’t want to do that. The Goodbyn roll-down lunch bag is also perfect because the Hero bin can sit down in there flat and it stays that way as he carries his lunch box, once again, preventing his food from being tossed around. I can’t rave enough about these products and how well they are made. I have no doubt that we will make good use of them for years to come! They have quite a few other items that you should check out on their online catalog.
