Through Silvie’s posts, she shares the details of raising my silly little gang of boys and the different things she encounters in her life as a mommy. Including crafts, recipes, and reviews, she enjoys blogging and all the work it entails. It definitely keeps her on her toes, but it’s rewarding for her when she receives a comment from a reader letting her know they enjoy her post. Her goal is to grow her blog into all it can be. As a mommy blogger, she has had the opportunity to work with several brands to review their products or places.
Stop by and check out her blog…it’s definitely a great read!

Tiffany chose When Cellphone Numbers Collide from Maple Brown Sugar. “I wanted to yell out AMEN as I read this! I have had my number for 5 years and I am STILL receiving texts and calls for the previous user. It’s funny getting a peek at someone’s else life through texts and random photos. Well kinda…LOL”
Cathy chose Pumpkin Orange Chocolate Wrapped Cake from All That’s Jas. “Such a BEAUTIFUL cake! An elegant dessert worthy of the center of any Thanksgiving feast! Her post makes it looks so easy to make I just might attempt to make it for my families Thanksgiving!”
Angie chose Clothespin Manger Nativity Scene Christmas Craft from Christianity Cove. “The first of Advent is on Nov 30th & nativity scenes have always been precious to me – I have a small collection & I’ll have to add this one to my collection.”
Serena chose 18 Reasons Why The 80′s Were Awesome #StumbleIntoTheWeekend from Barbie Bieber and Beyond. “It was great to reminisce about the 80′s and brought back so many happy & fun memories. It also put me in awe of the many advancements that have been made since then like with video gaming systems, fashion, and music.”
Stacey also chose this post. “Oh man the 80′s! The birth of MTV, big hair bands, and men in makeup and spandex! Oh the music! I have raised my kids on it…a new generation! The Sweet Valley High books were amazing, I remember having a shelf full! LOL! The TV and heaven forbid if there was something political or world newsworthy…there went 3, if not all of those channels! LOL! Thank you so much for the trip down memory lane!”
Damjana chose Cornucopia Snack from Three Kids and a Fish. “Why this one? This treat has what it takes to make a perfect recipe for me: so colorful and inventively looking, yet so simple to make! And, I have a soft spot for the mix of sweet&salty taste…I just HAVE to try it out.”
Kimberly chose Healthy Apple Almond Butter Muffins from Luv a Bargain. “I chose this recipe as it has healthy substitutes for baking – making muffins a little bit healthier. And it looks yummy!”
Yolanda chose I wish I would have known how hard it would be to parent someone else’s child from Ripped Jeans & Bifocals. “As an African American woman who has worked with children at various stages in the system, I found this story of domestic transracial adoption beautiful. How I wish the world was full of more people with hearts as big and loving as this mother. It’s well written, and very touching.”
Meghan chose 2 Ingredient Edible DIY Kids Paint Recipe from Domestic Mommyhood. “I’ve been collecting lists of things to do with Savanna at home now that she is truly at an age to grasp learning. I love this idea of edible paint. I can let her do her own thing or we can learn the alphabet and numbers without me having to worry about her accidentally putting this in her mouth…and such a simple recipe!”
Jillian chose 25 Indoor Activities from Life’s Little Projects. “It’s starting to get chilly where I live and with it dark when I get out of work, it’s tough to keep my child entertained indoors. This list has some great ideas on keeping him occupied and having fun!”
Rhonda chose Holiday Craft | How to Make a Sock Snowman from About A Mom. “The holidays are around the corner, so I’m looking for crafts to do with my grandchildren. This sock snowman is adorable and made from items that I have an abundance of. I could find a place around my house for these little fellows. Adorable.”
Jessica chose Financially Fit & Physically Fit You from Women with Intention. “I love the idea of combining both being financially and physically fit together. As I was going through the post, both aspects are the same in nature. It’s basically doing a “2 for 1″ when accomplishing the goals. Thanks for sharing!”
Chelsea also chose this post. “I don’t even like chocolate, but these apple treats look delish!! I love that the pumpkin spice was included, so it’s a little different than the average ‘covered apple’!! Yummm!”
Amy chose A Little Thanksgiving Home Tour from Little Brags. “Christine did a fantastic job decorating her porch and home for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Her spaces are warm and welcoming, just what you want when having guests over! I love that she made some of the decorative items herself, including the creative little side table. I wish I was on her holiday guest list!”
