HP and PicCollage work together so you can print photos from your phone! #PicCollage #HP

I am participating in a promotional program with HP, PicCollage, and MomSelect. While this post is sponsored by them, the thoughts and opinions expressed are solely my own. HP and PicCollage work together so you can print photos from your phone! Recently, I got a new HP Envy 7640 printer (NOT part of this promotion, just for your reference, because I think it's helpful to know what type of printer I was using when I printed these pictures). I tend to take the vast majority of my pictures with my phone, and it wasn't compatible with the existing printer we had to print…

The Voice of Play #YearRoundPlay

This post is sponsored by the Voice of Play. All thoughts and opinions expressed are solely my own. In the late summer, before the kids go back to school, practice for fall sports often begins. The weather is still nice where we live, the nights are beginning to get a bit cooler, and the leaves are giving hints of the changes headed our way.  Once they actually begin school, usually after Labor Day, our schedules get even busier adding homework, clubs, and organization meetings after school, pack the schedule even more. It can be hard to find the time for them…

How to shop for a mattress

This is a sponsored post, all thoughts and opinions expressed are solely my own. Shopping for a new mattress can be stressful and time consuming. It's often a big ticket item that needs to be budgeted and planned for, and many brands recommend replacement after 10 years or so. We all probably have different ideas of how to shop for a mattress, even between the two people that may be sharing one :) We let our last mattress go almost 15 years before replacing, and when the time came, we went to numerous stores to test out every brand and…
