Today’s Mommy Juice Pick: Hot Pumpkin Tom and Jerry
Why I Picked This Mix: I’m still not sure why white girls get a black eye for liking fall and all things pumpkin. Nor do I fully understand what being basic means, but I will readily admit that my favorite season, since forever, is fall. In turn, this may be why I fit the stereotype…but, let me tell you why I don’t care. Continue reading
Moms! We are offering another Mommy Juice Tour!
Join us in downtown Casper for a night of drinks featuring Moscow Mules and Moscow Mule inspired drinks. Our “Momscow Mule” Tour will feature sips and eats from some of our favorite local places including Raccas Pizzeria Napolentana, Gaslight Social, and Frontier Brewing Company and Taproom. Registration is required.
As always, transportation from Casper Executive Car and Limo will be provided for drop offs in Casper, Mills and Evansville. It’s the perfect way to spend time with old and new friends after the hustle and bustle of Halloween. (If you have a college sports fan in your life, have them catch the University of Wyoming vs Colorado State game at Frontier Brewing Company and Taproom at 5:00PM and let them know you will join them close to halftime! They can have a ride home at the end of the night, too, for an extra $8.) We call this a Mommy Juice Tour in honor of our series, but you don’t have to be a mommy to participate!
Your night will include great company, Moscow Mules and mule inspired drinks; dinner featuring pizza, bread, and salad; a ranking card to provide feedback on your drinks; entry to a copper cup prize drawing; and transportation (within the Casper, Mills and Evansville area)! Have your ride drop you off at Raccas Pizzeria Napolentana (430 S Ash St, Casper, WY 82601). We will take you home at the end of the night. You must be 21 years old to join us.
We had an awesome turnout and an amazing time on our Mommy Juice Margarita Tour and our Mommy Juice: Hang at the Hangar with Mystic Mountain Tour. Like last time, spaces are limited and your spot is not confirmed until your registration form is complete and payment arrangements have been made. No group registrations will be accepted.

Get ready to hear some hilarious mom truth in this not-so-expert review of a Yes to Tomatoes Face Mask. Epic failure using beauty products is just part of the mommy game for me! I also know about one of life’s best kept beauty secrets – laughing at myself!
Big Brother N could spend hours coloring, cutting, gluing, threading or doing some other type of art activity. Believe me, I’m a huge supporter of this, especially in the winter when his other favorite activity to request is TV. Over the years, we have received hand-me-down supplies from friends and my mom who was a preschool teacher for years as well as new materials as gifts. Our collection was really getting out of hand.

I was anxious with anticipation as I lay in the ultrasound room waiting to find out if I was having a boy or girl. It was my choice last time to wait to find out the sex of Big Brother N. This time, Seano really wanted to know. Prior to our 20-week appointment we had decided we would find out the sex of our growing baby. Little Brother N wasn’t cooperating as the ultrasound tech drove the wand over my belly and we waited and waited for what felt like hours but was probably mere seconds. Finally, she said, “Oh, I can tell what you are!” She proceeded to type, “Oh boy, I’m a boy!” on the ultrasound screen next his male parts. We were going to have another baby boy! Several things immediately went through my head: little boys love their mommas so hard, and I was going to be lucky enough to get to experience this again; a built in best friend for Big Brother N; and we would hardly need anything as I kept EVERYTHING from Big Brother N’s babyhood. So far, it seems I’m right on all three accounts. Continue reading
We have started a family tradition by attending the annual Teddy Bear Tea in Casper, WY. I was clueless about this event until I became a parent. When I did learn of it, I was a little intimidated to take my small children to an occasion so proper sounding. I was hooked after our first Teddy Bear Tea and we have regularly attended over the past 4 years.
The Teddy Bear Tea takes place on the Sunday after Continue reading
