Back to School Glasses Made Easy with JCPenney

Thank you JCPenney Optical for sponsoring this post. Visit your local JCPenney Optical to find your perfect frames!

Mom&Nat1
My kids go back to school on Wednesday. It is hard to believe that the summer came and went already. There is a lot to do before school starts, which can be a job in itself. We found out near the end of last school year that my son was having trouble seeing the smart board from the back of the room. Thankfully, JCPenney Optical offers the latest eyewear trends at affordable prices for the whole family, so I could look at new glasses for myself as well!

Today I'm sharing another Disney recap, this time it is our visit to Epcot. We spent a lot of time in the World Showcase with the kids, dined at Akershus for the first time and Nathan was tall enough for Test Track. It was a great day!

5 Easy Picnic Snack Ideas



Dannon1
We may be winding down summer, but we are in for some amazing weather once the fall gets here. We've already been experiencing some milder weather in the lower 80's here in St. Louis and it's been easier to get outside to do activities. Today I wanted to share 5 Easy Picnic Snack Ideas that you may already have in your fridge or pantry to take with you on an in pronto picnic or outdoor event, such as an outdoor concert or park. I'll also share why Danimals is a favorite snack choice for my kids.

My son is going into his first year of middle school next year and the teacher warned us that they will need to pack deodorant with them in their gym bag. This may also be the year that he will need to get braces, so good oral hygiene is important for him, too. Today I'm sharing some Gym Bag Essentials for Middle Schoolers, including natural Tom's of Maine® Original Care Deodorant and Tom's of Maine® Antiplaque & Whitening Toothpaste.

12 Months of Goals - August

12MonthsofGoals
Last year I set 3 goals every month for myself and I accomplished a lot! This year, I wanted to down play it even more and just set ONE goal for myself. However, with just one goal each month I hope to devote more time to it. You can find an update on July's Goal below.
