Check Your Auto Insurance Before Your Next Road Trip

Post contributed by Amanda G.

There are all kinds of good reasons to check your auto insurance coverage. One of the better reasons is one that is seldom mentioned. Auto insurance commercials are all about you, but one of the best reasons to have auto insurance is about protecting the other person that may be involved in an accident.

If you injure another driver in an accident that was your fault, you bear a social responsibility to take care of that person’s financial needs. There is a good chance you don’t have the money

Baby Dickey 3 and 4?!

Well, it has been awhile! What have we been doing over at the Dickey home?! We’ve kept busy, that’s for sure. My husband and I spent 9 days traveling around Alaska, which was INCREDIBLE. We went for our 30th birthdays and our 7th wedding anniversary (all occur within about a month). That’ll have to be for another post, but it was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime type of trip.

We had a great summer with the kids. They each took a week-long dance camp (Ryan’s was more hip hop style and Rebecca’s was more like

Spring cleaning and turning 30

You guys. I turn 30 on Friday.

I love having an April birthday… it’s spring, the warmer weather is coming, the sun is out, and we get some fantastic rain storms.

THIS April, I turn 30.

My typical annual spring cleaning seems to have a different meaning this year… out with the old, in with the new. Goodbye to the twenties, hello to the thirties.

Spring cleaning to welcome a new decade…

Clean out that wardrobe! I always have to put away my winter clothes at the end of the season and pull

Before I was a mom, I’d never be THAT mom

You know all those things you said before you ever actually became a mom… you walked around and watched other moms at the grocery store or at a restaurant and you’d think to yourself, “I will NEVER be THAT Mom!” My kids will never behave that way. MY kids will listen to me. I will never let my kids do that. Right?!

Ohhh, lady. Just wait 😉

I wrote a post a loooong time ago (May 2011) called “Before I was a Mom…” and that was back when I only had one

I had a DNA test for genetic health and ancestry

You may have seen me posting on Facebook about this over the past week or 2, but I recently participated in a DNA test for genetic testing on a review campaign with 23andMe. I was intrigued by the idea of simply spitting in a cup, sending it off to a lab, and having tons of answers about my health and ancestry… but at the same time I was terrified. I went back and forth on if I should do it… curiosity got

Memories: the every day moments

At what age did you form your first memory? Or what types of things do you clearly remember from your childhood? I know memories start forming around age 3, which is how old our son Ryan is… and why I sat up thinking about this while nursing Rebecca at 3am last night (I can’t believe I actually still remembered it this morning, haha).

I know some people know exactly what their “first” memory is… it’s usually something either really amazing or really terrible. I have no idea what my first memory is, I don’t
