Worldwide Make-A-Wish Day on April 29th became a very special occasion in our house when the WWE highlighted the celebration with a special Monday Night Raw episode. John Cena granted the wishes of three little boys to become WWE Superstars for the night. Our boys sat on the end of their seats completely impressed by how happy a small wish can make a sick child.
Tech Mommy: Important Life Saving Apps for Moms
Given all that has been happening in our world from major hurricanes to bombings, we momma tigers just want to cling tightly to our cubs to keep them safe. However, as the leaders of our tribe, we must keep a positive outlook on life and teach our children to see the good in our world like all those who helped each other in the brave city of Boston. But, it never hurts to be prepared and to teach our children to do the same:
Our top 5 favorite Life Saving or Crisis Preparedness Apps are:
Looking for that perfect antique or a special gift for a close friend? Visit My London Flat at 2600 Persa Houston, TX. What makes this beautiful boutique extraordinary is that it has a price point for everyone. The former convent at St Anne’s features whimsical items for home & garden from $5 to antique chairs from the 1900’s at a bit higher price.
Family video and photo memories are very important to moms so any App that makes the process easier is a winner! With the everyday balance of family chaos and work, we struggle to find time to create the family mementos that will be treasured forever. An App that we use while waiting for soccer or lacrosse pickup is a real-time saver.

Travel Mommy: Blissdom 2013 And Jon Acuff’s START
Thanks to Twitter, last-minute we spotted that some of our blogger friends planned to attend the Blissdom conference in Dallas, TX. We decided to take a spontaneous trip to the conference because we had never attended a blogging conference before and always enjoy new inspiration for our writing.
Mom Do you know where wallet is?

Getting Ready for Wrestlemania XXIX
Our boys are so excited that this week is Wrestlemania! To prepare, they have recorded the “coming home song” and to our dismay have played it constantly. So to move on to new music choices and to kick off the celebration, we saw the Rock in GI Joe Retaliation on Saturday night. The movie had some fascinating action scenes but we can’t wait to see what moves the Rock is going to do on the big stage vs. John Cena at Wrestlemania XXIX at Met Life Stadium in New Jersey.
