SlimType {The Physical Keyboard for Your Smartphone}


Everyone loves their smart phones these days. It seems that we can't go for an hour without checking our social media, texts, or any number of other apps and mediums that connect us with our friends and family. Ironically, since cell phones evolved into smart phones, written text has, for the most part, replaced voice communication. While I am old-school and prefer to speak on the phone rather than text (it's so much faster), I have to bend to ...continue reading

How To Naturally Heal Severe Dandruff

healing severe dandruff naturally

We had the chance to visit the ABC Expo in Las Vegas this past year. The ABC Expo is gigantic convention for all things kids and family-related. When I say gigantic, I mean gigantic. It was our first time attending and the sheer size and number of vendors is amazing. We were there for three days and still didn't get to see every display booth. It's that big! While we wanted to see everything and talk to every person, it just wasn't possible. ...continue reading

chiggy & n

Do you suffer from seasonal allergies? It's miserable isn't it? Now imagine that for your kids. Kids are so tough and resilient that they often just power through their symptoms without so much as a complaint. I know how frustrating it is when your eyes won't stop watering and you can't stop sneezing. It must be terrible for children, especially since they can't quite articulate exactly how they are feeling. Deepika and Manish Chadha watched ...continue reading

The Baby is Here!


Hi everyone! Just wanted to let all of you who have been on baby watch know that HE has arrived! Our little guy was born over night so we've spent the day catching up on sleep and snuggling.

Taking The Dryness Out Of Winter With the Honeywell Cool Moisture Humidifier

Honeywell Humidifier Giveaway

I (Kim) received the Honeywell Cool Moisture Humidifier at no cost to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. Now that we are in full-blown winter, my family’s skin, noses, and eyes are feeling the harsh effects. Our furnace is running what feels like non-stop and it’s drying out our skin. My hands feel so rough, I can’t seem to put on enough lotion. Even the skin around my eyes are getting red and dry. It’s awful! Enough is enough, am ...continue reading

You Won’t Believe What This Home Improvement Store Employee Did


While cruising through my personal Facebook feed a few days ago I came across this story from my friend Jami, who works at a popular home improvement store in our area: You never know who is going to walk into your life, if even just for a moment. Today a lady came in scoping out a place for her friend to take last pictures of her dog, Aaron, who has to be euthanized this evening due to cancer. Thankfully, we'd just received a large tropical ...continue reading
