Summertime in the South

In the South summertime means many things: tans, going on the river with friends and family, crawfish boils and of course allergies. Yes, all that sunshine means our grass grows exceptionally fast so that means nearly everyday someone in the neighborhood is cutting the grass. And how lucky am I that one of the 101 things I am allergic to is grass. (For the record I am also allergic to hay, pollen, cats, dogs, long haired animals, oak, pine and dairy products) When my alergies flare up my new weapon of choice is Claritin.

Claritin is a 24 hour pill that combats my allergy symptoms. For me those include itchy face and eyes, sneezing, runny nose and generally a bad mood. My eyes also swell shut sometimes. Claritin knocks all of that out of my system and leaves this mommy a non drowsey non itchy happy camper.

Have you tried Claritin?

DISCLOSURE: I am a part of the Claritin’s Moms Crew. Claritin sent me samples of their product to use as I see fit but I was not monatarily compensated. All opinions expressed are my own.

National Moms Night Out

Last week I was invited by my friend Maia over at Blogging babies & the Bayou to attend National Moms Night Out at the Esplanade Mall in Kenner La. And let me tell you we had so much fun.

There was food and prizes and fashion shows. Maria was invited to Live Tweet from the event. We received a swag bag full of awesome stuff including coupons….and you know how much I love coupons.

I had a great time and I must say that Brent, the Mall Manager & Lindsey, Director of Business Developing & Marketing put together a great event and Mall security was close at all times and asked if we needed anything.

I am most definitely looking forward to attending next year.

Happy Mother’s Day!

To all my mommy readers, soon to be mommys and those who are mommys to other people’s children or those whose children are no longer with us I wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day.
