Support Our Veterans :: Greenlight a Vet

Today is Veteran’s Day, but it should not be the only day that we honor the men and women who have served for our country. For us. These men and women are some of America’s bravest and hard-working. They are the reason we are free. They deserve our respect and honor.

It can be hard to show our veterans the appreciation they deserve when, back home and out of uniform, they’re more camouflaged than ever. Greenlight A Vet is a campaign to establish visible national support for our veterans by changing one light to green.

How can you get involved?
Change one light to green in a visible location-on your porch, in your home, or at your office-and keep it glowing every day as a symbol of appreciation and support for our veterans. Then, share your support by taking a picture of your green light and posting it using the hashtag #greenlightavet.

Visit to learn more about additional resources and organizations that support veterans and their families. Together, we can build a bridge between veterans and civilians and make a better tomorrow for all Americans.

Chosen By You (& Me!)

Have you ever wondered if the Chosen By You or Chosen By Kids signs you see in Walmart or at really mean that the toys or gift ideas were chosen by real people? Well, I can assure you that IT DOES!

Chosen By You

A few of my fellow Walmart Moms and I were able to see first hand how the process works. We even got to check out all of the great options and get our vote in for our favorites! The expo floors were full of toys, apparel, beauty products, electronics, cookware, gift baskets, and more. We spent hours browsing, playing, touching, and exploring before getting in our votes.

Here are a few of my favorites:

We got a sneak peak at The Pioneer Woman Collection before it was officially announced that Walmart would be carrying this exclusive line. (Another perk of being a Walmart Mom!) It is beautiful and I can assure you, after using the products for several weeks, that they are as durable as they are pretty to have in your own kitchen.


The Razor Crazy Cart is a hoot! It’s like having your own mini amusement park ride. My kids are all super jealous I got to try it out and are begging me for one.

I know that a new vacuum is probably on the bottom of most mom’s gift lists, but it may be on your wish list for preparing for the holidays. I highly recommend the Dyson V6 Slim for quick jobs, especially for hard wood floors and vacuuming stairs.

As far as the toys go, my favorites were all things Star Wars. Such fun and exciting things to give as gifts just after the premier of the newest movie. The timing just couldn’t be better!

Star Wars Yoda

While all of my top choices didn’t make the official Chosen By You list, they can all be found at Walmart this holiday season.

You’re Pregnant… Now What?

I was so incredibly happy each and every time I discovered I was carrying a new life, even though not one of my six positive pregnancy tests were expected. I remember clearly how nervous and excited I was as a newly married young woman to discover that I was going to have our first baby. Then, to be shown two little heartbeats in jellybean-shaped babies at my very first ultrasound – oh, how surprised we were!

Truth be told, we were also pretty scared, especially since I was so sick the entire 7 months I was pregnant. (Yes, only 31 weeks.) Was it “normal” to feel this sick all the time? Are the babies ok? What do we do now? Who can we trust to guide us through our pregnancy?

My grandmother had eight children of her own, my mother carried and delivered five of us, and several of my aunts had babies. While I turned to my family members with a lot of my questions and concerns, none had carried twins, so I picked up a few books to help me navigate through this new territory.

Oh, how relieved I was to discover that my experiences during my pregnancy, labor, and delivery that first go-round would most likely not be repeated as I continued to have babies. But, I was also relieved to know that what I was experiencing while pregnant with my twins was, in fact, quite “normal.”

Now, almost 15 years later, I’ve carried and delivered five more babies and all were born healthy and strong, but I knew what to expect. For the most part.

So, I’m pregnant with my first baby… Now what?

Here are seven things you can expect when you are expecting:

  • You may feel tired. Most of the time. Don’t fight it. Rest, as often as is possible. After all, you have a new little life to nurture and grow, even if you can’t feel him or see him yet.
  • You may experience morning sickness all. day. long. I was sick most days through five of my pregnancies and I still wonder why people refer to it as “morning sickness.” However, on the flip side, you could have a pregnancy that makes you feel energetic and lively. Hey, it’s possible – it happened to me twice!
  • You may have sudden urges to eat (or just smell) certain foods or combinations of foods. Don’t, however, be alarmed if you don’t have any cravings. I only had food cravings during a few of my pregnancies. My husband still likes to tease me about the night he went out to buy me a box of strawberry cake mix at midnight, because I just had to have strawberry cake. I baked the cake and it sat there. I only just needed to catch a whiff of the cake baking to have my carving satisfied! Weird, right?
  • There is nothing quite like feeling your baby flutter around inside of your womb for the first time. Remember these flutters when she doesn’t have much room in there and begins to kick you while you try to sleep!
  • You will have to pee. A lot. Not just late in the pregnancy when you can feel Baby sit on your bladder, but from the very beginning. That little one dances on your bladder from day one, my friend.
  • The pregnancy glow if for real. As your pregnancy hormones begin to rage, your face may initially break out in the worst case of acne you’ve ever had. But then, just as quickly as it came on, your face will clear and you really will begin to glow.
  • You will grow in places you didn’t think possible. Your breasts will swell, your hips will expand, and your feet may even grow a size. But, more than all that, your heart will fill with love for the new little person you are growing.

Early Pregnancy Checklist

As a mother of seven, I can assure you that you never have to feel alone while baking that little bun in your oven! There are a plethora of resources out there to help guide you along this journey. Blogs, books, friends, and even strangers can be a huge help to ease your worries and concerns. Don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions!

If you are looking for a safe and simple way to learn about your baby and her risk of any specific genetic conditions, without an invasive diagnostic procedure, look in to Panorama Prenatal Testing. Knowing if your baby has risks can help you better prepare to meet your baby’s needs and feel confident as you head into parenthood. You can learn of any potential risks as early as 9 weeks gestation, giving you peace of mind early on.

But, the Panorama Test is not just for high risk pregnancies or to rule out genetic conditions. You can also find out the gender of your baby with incredible accuracy as early as 9 weeks. That is, if you want to know, of course.
