This is Where I Leave You, hits theaters 9/19/14, check out the new trailer! #TIWILY

When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.

My dog loves Minties by VetIQ and Betsy Farms Turkey Jerky! #Sponsored

I was asked a few weeks ago if I would like to review some new pet products by VetIQ and Betsy Farms, I graciously accepted, and my dog couldn't be more thrilled! We received a great package to facilitate this review, inside we found a big bag of Betsy Farms Turkey Jerky and a bag of Minties by VetIQ. Somehow she always knows when the mailman brings a package for her, she always stalks him as hes walking to do the door...

Car shopping can be stressful, it took me MONTHS, yes, months, to find the perfect vehicle for myself and my family. I was just about to give up, when I came across the mini-van made for me! I swore I would never drive a mini-van, but with kids, it was the right choice. Prior to purchasing my current van, I was driving a rickety old Isuzu Rodeo (do they even make those anymore?!) It had no air conditioning and the transmission had just about bit the dust. I knew it was time for an upgrade. That is when I came across a Nissan Quest. The interior is roomy and has power windows, power door locks, DVD player, and most importantly...AC! South Carolina is miserable in the summertime without AC in the car!

It was a big change for myself and my family to purchase a newer vehicle and take on a car payment. It had been a long time since we'd had one. But, in the end, I needed a reliable vehicle, that I could depend on. Yes, I complained for the longest time and thought for sure I was NEVER going to find the perfect car for me, but in the end, I was happy I waited and found a van within our budget and that is dependable.

7 Unusual (But Useful!) Cleaning Tips

7 Unusual (But Useful!) Cleaning Tips

Spring may have come and gone, but you can still clean like it's the beginning of the season. Here are just seven tips and tricks for the mom who is ready to vanquish dirt once and for all.

1: Put Vinegar In The Dishwater

When you don't immediately need your dishwasher one day, run a cycle with the shelves empty and the detergent cups filled with white vinegar. The interior will come out sparkling clean, and you can run it again with your usual product to get rid of the smell.
