My Pixar Studios Tour Revved Me Up for Cars 3

Cars 3 Event

Walking along the sun-filled campus of Pixar Studios in Emeryville, California, you can’t help but feel the physical presence of creativity in the air. It sounds cliche, I know, but after getting a private tour of the grounds, along with two dozen fantastic bloggers on a #Cars3Event, I now have a better understanding of why […]

To Counter All the Hate, Here’s 101 Things I Truly Love

Date Night

There’s a lot of hate going on in the world these days. I’m not going to start talking politics here at all, nor am I blindly ignoring the reasons behind all this hate.

How to Start A Blog From Scratch

Start a Blog

It never fails. I tell my friends about an unbelievable Disney Press Event I just got back from. Or when I show off the slick new iPad that Netflix just sent me. Or maybe I mentioned the nice side income I’ve earned from Mommy’s Busy, Go Ask Daddy this year. From the trips to the celebrity […]

The Disney Mega Snow White Prize Package (Over $150 in value!)


If it weren’t for those Seven Dwarfs, Snow White would still be sleeping in the woods only dreaming about her Prince Charming. Those funny little miners with names like Doc and Sleepy and Dopey definitely came together to save someone they cared about. Oddly enough, the blogger community can be as powerful, caring and story-altering as […]

KidzVuz Back2School Bash Ruled


Out of the three blogging events I attended in NYC last month (Blogger Bash, Blog Her and KidzVuz), I can easily say the best of the bunch was the KidzVuz Back 2 School event! It was just packed with so much… well, fun! The fact that kids could actually attend might’ve made a difference, because […]

When Boobs Collide – The Public Breastfeeding Debate

photo 1

I generally shy away from major internet controversies on my blog. Sure I’ll occasionally toss out some pretty heated opinions from time to time (Seriously, Star Wars: Episodes I – III never happened!), but I generally tend to avoid the big debates that set trolls all a flutter. Stuff like politics and religion. Yeah, I’ll […]

My 9-Year-Old Son Talks About Getting a Tattoo

Katie's tattoos

Ryan’s been asking loads of questions lately about tattoos. How do they do them? Why do people get them? Do they hurt? Does it bleed? Does it hurt? Do the needles hurt? You get the picture. After I briefly explained the process to him (not that I have any tattoos, mind you), I asked Ryan […]

Almost Wordless Wednesday – The ’70s Edition


I’m probably the only one who really cares that Wordless Wednesday is anything but wordless. It’s supposed to be a day where bloggers just show off nice big pictures with no text. But everyone ends up writing a novel to go with the pics. So I’ve decided to follow suit, except I’m calling it Almost […]
