I love to travel, but have never been to Alaska before.  I’ve heard amazing things about Alaska from those who have traveled there and have it on my bucket list of places to visit.  I’m hoping that Frank will want to visit Alaska someday too! Do you seek adventure, love to travel or enjoy the […]...

When you have a child, you want the very best for your babies.  When you have a pet, that pet is just like a child and you want the best for your pet, just like you do your children.  We want to give our cats food just like we do our kids.  The foods should […]...

I don’t know about your kids, but our kids love to play on their Samsung tablets, on the Playstation and on our iPhones.  I think the usage of technology is a lot higher now than it was when I was a kid, and that being the case, there is a higher need for our children to […]...

It’s hard to believe it’s been 6 years since I started blogging at The Mommy-Files.  One of the reasons I started blogging was to connect with other moms online who might be going through similar things in motherhood as I was.  It was also a place for me to share my thoughts, feelings, experiences and photos of […]...

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Shire. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating. Raising a child at any age is challenging, and when it comes to mothers and daughters, the dynamic can be even more complex. What some may dismiss as “typical tween girl behavior” […]...

Frank and I travel down to Los Angeles a lot!  We’ve found that sometimes it’s just easier (and more cost-effective) to take a taxi to get where we’re going.  Whether we’re heading to a baseball game, a concert or a press event, it can get expensive (and frustrating) driving around and searching for parking in […]...

Frank and I love to host get-togethers for our friends and family and recently had the opportunity to throw our very own “Outdoor Oasis” Party.  Our party was a huge hit thanks to Pier 1 Imports and Mom Central.  After shopping at Pier 1 Imports, I was amazed at how many different items and affordable […]...

I remember being a kid and how excited I was to get a new computer at our school. I remember playing the “Turtle Game” using the keyboard. I mean, when I was a kid (before computers), we had typewriters and had to look up information in encyclopedias and use the Dewey Decimal system. We didn’t […]...

Are you or someone in your family suffering from Eczema?  If so, you know how uncomfortable and even painful it can get!  Did you know that Eczema is a disease affecting 30 million Americans and 20% of children?  When skin care becomes a daily battle against itchy, red, dry or inflamed skin, it can feel […]...

Food allergies are never any fun, but can you imagine being lactose intolerant or having dairy sensitivities? That means no ice cream, no milk shakes, and no milk with your cookies.  I went through a dairy sensitivity myself caused by a prescription I was taking.  I couldn’t drink milkshakes, eat ice cream or dip my […]...

As a woman, I love it when my legs are soft and smooth (and Frank loves it too)!  I’ve tried waxing (it hurt and was expensive), but mostly I shave.  I don’t know about you, but I’ve found that it never fails that the day after, my legs are already prickly.  Uh!  I want smooth […]...

Summer is almost here and that means warmer weather, which also means wearing more tank tops, sundresses, and bathing suits.  I love wearing the cute summer outfits, but I do start getting conscious of my underarms.  I want soft, smooth underarms that aren’t stinky!  I mean really, what woman does want those, right? With softer, […]...

I walk a lot!  I’m not even talking about exercise kind of walking.  I’m talking about cooking breakfast, doing dishes and laundry, making meals for the family, running kids to school and running around town type of walking.  Lots of walking!  Not to mention walking as part of my travels.  When I walk, I want […]...

As a blogger, I have the opportunity to learn about and work with a lot of different companies.  I love it when I come across a company who gives back to the community.  After all, the communities we grow up in end up shaping our lives in more ways than we realize.  As a child, […]...

I wasn’t really familiar with Stonyfield Organic Yogurt before participating in this campaign.  So when I was invited to check out the new Stonyfield Organic Yogurt Pouches, I jumped on the opportunity.  I don’t know about you, but I try to ensure our kids eat healthy snacks.  Sometimes they’ll be hungry after breakfast or dinner [&hell...

When my boys were little, I was really into scrapbooking.  I mean old school scrapbooking!  You know where you trim and cut the pictures with different scissors, add borders and stickers, adhere the pictures to the pages, add a sheet protector and then bind in album?  Yeah – old school scrapbooking.  In fact, my stepmom […]...
