Changes to MommySplurge – Hello, Subscription!
You may have noticed a few changes on the site this evening! To better reflect our focus we’re changing our name to Hello, Subscription! After over two years of subscription box reviews, news, deals (and Black Friday/Cyber Monday extravaganzas!) we think it’s time that the site’s name and brand reflect who we are. You may […]
I have been totally loving everyone responses to the love giveaways! I decided to make a word cloud out of all the responses. You are good people! You love your families, pets, coffee, and naps. 🙂
Hello my superfine ladies! Here are my thoughts for this Thursday! I love it when readers email me and we chat about whatever. I’m busy, you’re busy, but somehow we find the time to have a convo. And I love it. It makes me happy. I worked at home yesterday (I thought I was going […]
I haven’t done a Thursday Thoughts or fun photo post for a while, looks like today is the day! Can we talk about our New Year’s Resolutions? Are you still going on them? I’ve gotten a pretty rocky start!! I’m eating a lot better but haven’t quite found the time to fit in a lot […]
Happy New Year!
From my family to you, Happy New Year! Thank you so much for your kind comments, emails, Facebook posts, and reading my blog (now almost 2 years old!). I hope you had a great New Year’s Eve and if you didn’t – here’s to new beginnings! 2014 saw my husband come home from Vermont, me […]
Maximizing Holiday Money #ChaseHolidays
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Chase Ultimate Rewards. All opinions are 100% mine. I love stretching my holiday dollars by spending my money in a smart way. One of the ways I do that – after coupons on my favorite shopping sites – is to use a rewards credit […]
NYC Mommy & Me Trip!
Back from NYC! I’ll be on tonight with subscription box reviews and deals and spoilers and all sorts of stuff (see dining room, above, for all the stuff that needs opened…). But for now, a quick look at our Mommy & Me trip! I had a work engagement in New York and I brought my daughter […]
Cyber Tuesday Administrative Note
FYI – I’m expiring the old coupons that I know/am pretty sure don’t work any more. They’re still on the blog but just don’t appear on the home page, so you can browse to see what MAY be still available. The last Cyber Monday roundup will be up through the end of the day, in […]
Family Update + Christmas Decorations
Quite a few of you have emailed me and asked me for updates on my family, so I thought I’d post a few photos! If you’d like, you can also follow me on Instagram, where I post pictures of the kids as well as sometimes box pics. The truth is between a newborn and the […]

I honestly can take zero credit for these, but I thought you might want to take a peek at my kids’ Halloween costumes! Toby was asleep (that’s the cactus), but right here we have Sheriff Callie & Deputy Peck! We’re off to trick or treat tonight, hope you have a fun and safe Halloween weekend!
Phone Case of the Month
This is my obligatory squishy baby photo. You can skip my boring OMG I’m so busy post and just look at his sweet little nog. So I have something funny to share about my deliveries. FedEx home comes in a Budget rental truck. And UPS delivers at 9:30. I have packages that I know are […]
My last Thursday Thoughts was pre-baby. And now we have baby F (see birthday stuff here)! He’s so wonderful. I could smell his head all day long! He’s starting to be more awake during the day and sleep more at night. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I wish he’d wake up earlier in […]

What’s up ladies?! And 2 dudes! (That’s my best guess!) It’s Monday and that means Mini-Reviews! I haven’t done any in quite some time but here we are. First, baby update! F is doing great and so am I. After coming home from the hospital I haven’t really needed anything over an ibuprofen or aleve […]
And we’re back! If you’re into baby photos, here are some of our latest addition! This giant child was born on Friday, 10 pounds 3.4 ounces, and 23″! I am 4’11”. He looks exactly like my other kids.And we love him like crazy! No super special birth story for you. Just a repeat c-section early Friday […]
How is this the only photo I got of my kid’s first time at soccer? Whoops! She *loved* it. Woke up sick though. We’re keeping her home today. We hemmed and hawed about it (she slept in until after 9, and this kid is a crack of dawn kind of girl), hacking. I don’t know […]

Living out of a hotel for 2 weeks has taken just about everything out of me but we did have the first day of school! This is my favorite picture. I got some of just her but she insisted on taking some with her little brother. Love them! My genius lunch packing consists of stealing […]
OMG so many thoughts! Yes I was gone from my blog for like 5 days, which is absolutely ridiculous, and I have an absolutely ridiculous amount of reviews, deals, and news to go along with my absence. But here’s what we’ve been up to, mostly in photos! I have an OB appointment this morning and […]
OMG we’re moving in three days! And I start my new job in 4 days! My life is totally insane! I love it! Everyone has seen fit to remind me that we’re moving someplace colder than here, so I did a ThredUp order the other week! I thought my haul wasn’t too bad – a […]
Rainbow Honey Mystery Bag
I have been battling a bitter butter battle (ok not really) with carpal tunnel this week. It’s out of control! I have a few reviews to get up today, let’s all cross our fingers they aren’t just pictures! Because for the first several hours I’m awake I cannot feel my hand. It’s a swelling/pregnancy thing […]
All the things I worried about last Thursday I haven’t done squat about. Back to School, too much email, none of it! I did, however, decorate my screwdriver so my husband will stop moving it around. It’s mostly a reminder to return it where he got it and not leave it somewhere stupid. I’m going […]
Packing, packing, packing! Actually organizing first, then packing! If there’s one thing I cannot stand it’s packing unorganized crap together. I have stuff *everywhere* but when I pack, it has to be just totally together. Full reviews coming up later of actual boxes, but here’s some mini reviews I had hanging around! Monday Mini Reviews! […]

Whew! That was a close one! I went in for an OB appointment yesterday and the tech found high cord blood pressure. I went in for a followup ultrasound this morning and thankfully everything is OK! If they confirmed that finding it was either bedrest or have the baby, depending on the severity. And it’s […]
I need a new router. BAD. I have an ollllld Airport Extreme & Airport Express and they just aren’t cutting it. I think I need a total upgrade! What to do??! Do I need to pay for one of these AC routers? Also, the new house has two floors. Just tell me what to buy! […]
Phone Case of the Month
]I love plugging in the iPad and seeing a great work of art in iPhoto! 🙂 Look at this fashion plate. Too cute. We went over to Costco yesterday for Pizza and Target clearance (a bust). We bought a Frozen pencil case and a Rescue Bot at 50% off. The Rescue Bot is a potty […]
We’re back! Doesn’t that melt your heart?? And oh my, I have a zillion boxes! I forgot to take a photo again, but my neighbor brought me two USPS tubs of mail last night! I traded her the Muito Cool hat from #NGQ03. Yeah… Still gotta write that review! I would have been able to […]
Phone Case of the Month
Happy Thursday! It’s my birthday! Yeehaw! We’re also in the middle of nowhere on vacation and having the MOSTEST fun! My grandparents grew up in this teeny weeny Pennsylvania town and live here in the summer, so we drove up to enjoy the week with them! Also we’re moving to Pennsylvania in about a month […]
