It’s a great opportunity to engage in get-out-in-nature pastime while giving your body an effective workout to burn calories. Here […] Read more »

Healthy at Walmart Group

This post is brought to you by Walmart. All opinions are my own. Fall packs a double-whammy for me and my son. First, we both have dreadful fall allergies. The leaves haven’t even started changing yet and I can already feel them coming on. Every day for the last week I’ve woken up sneezing my head off.

Half the time I can’t tell if I’m suffering […] Read more »

Take the Pain Out of Summer Fun with Puracyn #PuracynFirst

When you’re a mom to a 9-year-old, summer is all about climbing trees, spinning on tire swings, running through the sprinkler and generally being active.
