Backstreet Boys Tour: In A World Like This

BSB In A World Like This

….Backstreet’s Back…. ALRIGHT!

A child of the 90’s, my teenage years were defined by the Boy Band Debate: Backstreet Boys vs. ‘N SYNC. My girlfriends and I spent long hours analyzing things like Nick Carter’s smile and Justin Timberlake’s curly locks.

I was always decidedly in the Backstreet Boys camp. I had all their albums and knew all their songs by heart. I cut out photos from Tiger Beat and BOP and plastered my walls with them. Yes, I was *that* girl.

Dallas Comic Con Photos

Surprisingly, The Nerd and I have lived in Dallas for five years and had never attended Dallas Comic Con — until this year. I wanted to share some of my Dallas Comic Con Photos with you all — we had an amazing time!

Of course, we had to get a family photo with the replica Stargate. SG 1 was one of the first nerdy shows that The Nerd and I watched together!Read More…

Parent’s Choice Overnight Diapers

Overnight Diapers

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Parent’s Choice Overnight Baby Diapers.

When I was pregnant, the most annoying thing was constantly being reminded just how much having a baby would cost. There are so many things to consider — clothes, formula, food, diapers. I was fully prepared for my pocketbook to take the hit.

But here’s the thing they DON’T tell you… all the things you have to buy when a baby is born is just the beginning. As your baby grows, their needs change and you start spending money on different things.

Summer Barbecue Necessity: Masterbuilt Digital Electric Smoker

Electric Smoker-003.jpg

Every year, we celebrate Memorial Day at someone else’s house. I’ve tried to talk The Nerd into buying a grill every single summer, but he just won’t budge. He says he doesn’t know how to grill, and isn’t really interested in learning.

This year, I’d decided to put my foot down and get a grill, even if I had to use it myself. That is, until the lovely folks at Masterbuilt asked if I’d be interested in reviewing their Digital Electric Smokehouse.

For us, this was the perfect compromise. The smoker stays outside, so the house doesn’t get too hot when cooking. It’s easy to use and clean, and it doesn’t involve open flame, which is what gave me pause about using a grill.

2013 Chevrolet Traverse: The Perfect Road Trip Vehicle


When I found out that SoFabCon was in Bentonville, Arkansas, I thought it would be fun to get a group of my blogging friends together for a road trip there. We reached out to Chevrolet to see if they’d consider sponsoring our trip, and they gracious agreed to provide a 2013 Chevrolet Traverse to take us there in style.

Last December, I had the chance to test drive a 2013 Chevrolet Equinox, and I currently drive a 2008 Equinox, so I was excited to try out the Traverse. The Equinox is a great vehicle, but with seating room for only 5, I’ve often thought it’d be nice to have something larger.

#SoFabCon 2013: How Collective Bias Gets “It”


I’ve had the opportunity to attend several blog conferences this year. Blog conferences are a great way to network with other bloggers and brands, and learn some tips and tricks to improve this little part of the web.

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to attend SoFabCon in Bentonville, Arkansas, a conference organized by Collective Bias. You may recognize Collective Bias as a company that I partner with often — in my experience, they have been the company most interested in providing quality opportunities for bloggers with competitive pay. I was excited for the chance to learn more about Collective Bias, meet some of the employees that I’ve come to know and love online, and, basically, figure out what I could do to better my relationship with them.

Thank You to the #Brandcation DESTINation Sponsors!

Destin Resort-013

While it may have looked like I just spend a weekend playing in the sun and sand during my Destin resorts vacation, I actually was there to learn from and connect with other bloggers and brands. That’s what #Brandcation is all about!

Upon our arrival at the Emerald Grande, I got to meet the ladies I would come to know and love over the next few days. We sat down together to talk about the sponsors that made this trip possible, and receive some products to test during our trip.

I wanted to take a moment to thank these sponsors — without whom this trip wouldn’t have been possible — and to highlight a few of the products that I really enjoyed.
