BeFunky Photo Editing and Graphic Design

I was invited to review a photo editing software and app set with a brand new graphic design function, and with a name like BeFunky, I could. not. refuse.

I’ve tried several photo editing programs before, some I’ve never used again and some I use occasionally. This one was really easy, though, […]

#KC Starlight Broadway Series: Mary Poppins

We received tickets to the Starlight Broadway shows for review purposes. The air was sweltering last night. You know when it’s the middle of the summer, and a storm is somewhere in the near future, and the air is perfectly still and heavy and so, so hot? That was last […]

Open Boxes: A Book Review

Motherhood is tough. Motherhood during the age of Facebook, Instagram, and social media in general is FRIGGIN’ HARD. As a mother, it’s not easy giving yourself grace, or remembering that other people, no matter what their status updates read or their perfectly filtered pictures show, are just like you and […]

#KC Starlight Broadway Series: Cinderella

Despite a forecast that said the rain would clear by 8pm, or at the very least, the second act, we sat in a heavy-to-moderate drizzle for the entire production of Cinderella last night. The two girls, my mom and I went, but no one complained (even me…the complainer). We bought […]

#KC Starlight Broadway Series: Pippin

  I’m going to be honest…I googled Pippin a couple of times before going to the show and read the press release, and I still wasn’t able to say what it was about or know what to expect. I knew that it was about a prince who’s trying to find […]

The national touring production of ANNIE is in town for only three nights as it plays a special Broadway weekend engagement at […]

#KC Starlight Broadway Series: Camelot

The second show in Starlight’s 65th Broadway series is Camelot! I took Henry with me for this one, because not only does he like the big musical productions (though he won’t readily admit it), he also is a boy that loooooves fight scenes. I thought this would be perfect. We […]

Featuring the electrifying […]

Lose the Cape: How to Drop the Mom Guilt

Sometimes I feel like social media is out to get me. Like, if my own kids don’t drive me crazy one day, Facebook will. Or I see a blog post that blasts moms doing a certain thing, making them feel “less than,” or beautiful Pinterest-inspired parties that make me think […]

The Unraveling of Mercy Louis (A Book Review)

You guys know I’ve been reading a ton lately, gobbling up all of the recommended books my library could give me, and I was intrigued by the chance to read and review a book being released this March.

The Unraveling of Mercy Louis is about Mercy, a small town basketball star, […]
