A Day In My Life As A Mommy Blogger

A lot of people ask me what it’s like to be a blogger for Disney Baby. They usually say something along the lines of “Oh, how lucky are you?! That must be the easiest job ever!”

Well, on one hand, they’re right! Blogging is a pretty easy job. I get to tell people all about my life as a mom and gives tips and laughs here and there. The blogging part of being a mom is the easy part, but the “being a mom” part takes some work. Haha. I guess the hard part is multi-tasking: taking care of two babies at home WHILE blogging can be a little stressful but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

So I thought I would give y’all a glimpse into my daily life as a mom and blogger. Here goes:

20 Baby Names Inspired by Pop Stars of the '80s

Do you miss the ’80s? I sure do. Yeah, I was just a kid, but it was a magical time. Fashion was funky fresh (do people still say that?), and the music was incredible. Even as a child I was able to appreciate what the pop stars of the ’80s did with their talent.

A Letter to My Daughter on Her 2nd Birthday

My sweetest little girl,

I have mixed emotions this week as you turn 2. I am excited because I see how much you’ve grown, and I know so many magical moments await you. I can’t wait to have conversations with you about life and answer all of your questions about hair, careers, clothes, and anything else you want to know. But, I must admit, I am kind of sad. You are growing up so fast and there are no longer any babies in my home. The baby days are gone.

My Family's Favorite Fall Recipe

I love to cook. All of the women in my family are fantastic cooks and it was a necessity as a little girl to be in the kitchen whenever dinner was being made so I could learn from my mom, grandmother and great-grandmother. I am so glad they passed down their love of cooking to me. We have a few family recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation but my all-time favorite is:

Chicken N’ Dumplings!

Preparing Our Hearts and Home for a Season of Thanks

As soon as we roll into the month of October, I become giddy. People around me are often reminiscing about how awesome the summer was and how they just aren’t ready for the cold mornings and the early sunsets. I can’t relate, though, because the early sunsets and cold mornings tell me that fall is here, Thanksgiving is coming, and Christmas is around the corner. Call me weird if you want, but I get pretty excited.
