I am thrilled to be able to offer one reader a Blu-Ray/DVD copy of this movie as part of a giveaway.

SEA-BAND® MAMA Disclosure: This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Sea-Band Mama. The opinions and text are all mine.

The training I went through really came in handy years later when I had my identity stolen and had to deal with a lot of stressful financial issues. While I was working as a loan officer, I took the opportunity to try and help my customers, going above and beyond what the job required. It can be challenging...

Remembering Great Christmas Gifts from the Past #ChosenByKids

This is a sponsored post for Walmart, as part of the Chosen By Kids Campaign. All thoughts and opinions expressed are solely my own. Best Gift I Received as a Child When I was little, we used to always ask for one “big” gift, and then several other smaller gifts that we’d like to have. Our parents would then pass along the smaller gift list to other relatives who wanted ideas of what types of things we were interested in. It worked well for us, and I do the same for my children each holiday season. I have a...
