Shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day

I’m not going to lie, St. Patrick’s Day is definitely one of my favorite spring holidays. Growing up in a family from “up north” who observes the Lenten season, St. Patrick’s Day was always something to look forward to because it meant we got to have a big party at the church, eat sweets, and […]

Saturday Toy Shopping – Doctor Barbie

So we probably can agree that there is a Barbie doll for every career, or pretty close to every career. If anyone watches the Barbie Life In The Dream House show, they actually mention Barbie’s many careers. Therefore, Barbie should have been a doctor at some point, right?

App-tastic Support: Number 1

So believe it or not, I’ve shared all the toys I carry around in my bag. If you think that’s not much, you’re right. My bag is actually quite small because it’s meant to fit just one thing: my tablet. But because I feel that there are lots of wonderful ways to provide support to […]
