Bobby McKey’s- A Rocking Good Time!


Have you been looking for something fun and unique to do in the area? Located at the National HarborBobby McKey’s is the place to check out! Whether you are looking for a fun family day activity, date night, or a girls’ night, they have it all

Each night, two to four piano players in teams of two take your requests and keep the crowd singing. You write your song request on the napkins provided for just that. These entertainers can play it all! We heard everything from Journey, to Taylor Swift, to Neil Diamond, to classic nursery rhymes. We were at the family friendly show. I’ve heard it can get even more entertaining in the evening, where you’ll see the entertainer play everything from drums, to fiddle, to guitar, all while taking your requests.

Perkley Agents- More Than A Video Game


Over the summer my son had the chance to play the online spy game, Perkley Agents. It was fun and entertaining, and great for a 9 year-old. Perkley Agents is a secret agent organization that solves mysteries and fights crime.

Once signed up, you become an agent. Agents gather clues, solve mysteries, and save the world, one operation at a time. As a Perkley Agent, you will be assigned missions and report your progress to Headquarters through your Back Office. You must be smart and determined. But don’t worry, they will give you the classified training and resources you need. You can also opt to buy extra spy gear to enhance the game play for your child. This makes the missions more real and you child feels more involved.

Tips & Tricks For Staying Organized This School Year


Let’s face it, we all like to make sure our kids’ first day or first few days are perfect. By perfect I mean lunches made, homework done, no one yelling, “I need my folder!” as you close the door, and no one eating a pop tart for breakfast. We like to start our kids off on a good note, but why not keep it there? Why not maintain the level of organization, planning, and readiness all year just as well as you do the first week. I have a few simple, relatively easy things you can do to make you and your child’s year run smoothly, like a well orchestrated machine! Check out these great ideas and the how-to thanks to some of my fellow bloggers 🙂

The Cookie Momster Kitchen ~ Review & Giveaway!


My daughter turned 11 this weekend and we threw her an Ice Cream Parlor themed party. Her and her friends were so spoiled to indulge in theses oh-so-cute and delicious cookies. How adorable are these? And they went perfectly with our theme! These cookies were custom made-to-order by Alex, owner of The Cookie Momster Kitchen in Manassas, VA. I contacted Alex in regards to my daughter’s party. She was quick to respond, asked about details, made these adorable ice cream cone cookies, and even individually wrapped them! It was a very easy, stress-free process. Did I mention these made my daughter’s day? We gave them away with her party favors and her friends were just as delighted! I was very impressed with the design and quality of the cookies and they tasted great too! Just take a scroll through The Cookie Momster’s Facebook or Instagram and see all the amazing work Alex has done. This is one Magnificent Mama!

Colgate® Optic White® Toothpaste


Colgate® has always been the Toothpaste of choice for our family. We trust the brand and their products. When I received the new Colgate® Optic White® Toothpaste in the mail, I was excited to try it out and see how the results would work for me. Let me tell you, after using it for almost a week, results are clear to see! In fact I noticed brighter teeth in 3 days! The toothpaste itself smelled and tasted great. My teeth felt fresh and looked pearly white in no time. It really is dazzle without the hassle! It’s so nice to get a noticeably whiter smile without going to the dentist or spending tons of money.

Peapod by Giant ~ Review & Giveaway!


Recently, I had the opportunity to shop via Peapod in my yoga pants, from my couch. Need I say more? 🙂  Peapod is an online grocery shopping system for Giant. You do all of your shopping online and Peapod will deliver it to your door, or you can pick it up. I don’t know about you, but anything that saves me from taking all three of my children and my ginormous shopping list to the store is a beautiful thing!

SweetLeaf Water Drops


Do you ever find it hard to consume your 8 glasses of water a day? I know I sure do! I love to drink tea, soda, and coffee, but when it comes to water, I am always looking for ways to jazz it up. I love adding a lemon or a lime or using fruit infused water bottles, but that can get tiring and you can’t always have those items with you on the go. Thanks to SweetLeaf® and Moms Meet, I found a simple, easy way to give my water more flavor!

SweetLeaf® Water Drops™ are natural, convenient, sugar-free and gluten-free water enhancers. You squirt into water and enjoy the award-winning flavor. The best part is these have zero calories, zero carbs, non-glycemic response and NO artificial sweeteners. That’s right, nothing fake, all natural! Finally, a better alternative to soda and sugar filled drinks!
