Keep Kids Regular With Culturelle Kids

This post is sponsored by Culturelle. All opinions expressed are our own. When a child becomes backed up it can really be physically and emotionally stressful for them, and for the parent. Not knowing what to do to help your child with their bathroom cycle can be frustrating. 61% of moms cite occasional regularity issues with their children as their top concern. When I heard about Culturelle products I was extremely happy to give them a try! We started with their probiotics (which our pharmacist even recommended to us one day while we were picking up a prescription!) You know a product is great when the pharmacist is even recommending it! It just so happens that one of my children was having bathroom issues when I was contacted about reviewing Culturelle® Kids Regularity Gentle-Go™ Formula. What is Culturelle® Kids Regularity Gentle-Go™ Formula? It is a gentle blend of dietary fiber from inulin, a preboitic vegetable fiber and whole kiwi fruit. Another key ingredient is … [Read more...]

Start School Off Right w/ Teacher Peach

Teacher Peach is the sponsor of this post. All opinions expressed are our own. Teachers play such an import roll in the lives of our children. If you were to take a moment to sit back and really think about the teachers you had growing up, would you remember them? I remember many of mine, especially the ones from my younger years. They were such an important part of my life and helped me in so many ways. I have fond memories of so many of my teachers. It really would be great to go back and thank them for pushing me and really believing in me! With Teacher Peach our children can show their teachers just how much they are appreciated. Teacher Peach is a one-stop-shop that supports teachers with creative classroom products. They recently launched their new A Note From the Teacher monthly subscription box. (Subscription boxes are so fun!) Each month the box will arrive with note writing items so the teacher can send notes that matter home with his/her students. There are greeting … [Read more...]

Nothing Says Summer Like Ice Cream +Giveaway!

This is a sponsored post. All opinions expressed are our own. Our family is super busy, especially this time of the year when soccer is about to begin (we have 3 playing this year!) Even though we may have a crazy busy schedule I always try to make sure we all have time (even if only for a little bit) to sit down as a family and enjoy a meal together. It's the little things, like eating together and chatting about how our day went while asking others to politely pass a bowl, the really brings a family together. Spending time with family over dessert can really put a smile on the faces of not only the kids, but the adults too! So, not long ago we received Jack Nicklaus Ice Cream to try. Let me start by saying that this ice cream was developed in partnership with the legendary pro-golfer, Jack Nicklaus and the Schwan Food Company. The goal was to bring families together with an affordable (and delicious) dessert. But, that's not all...a portion of sales of the product goes to support … [Read more...]

8 Apps Better For Your Kids Than Pokemon #learning

Please  note that this post may contain affiliate links. Pokemon Go has become a huge craze that has people running all over the place to find the next Pokemon! While we do not play ourselves, I can definitely see how many people could be enjoying themselves while playing. I do feel that it is getting a little out of control for some people since we've been seeing things in the news that have been happening due to people carelessly playing the game...while driving, on other people's properties and so forth. Please, be careful. Whether you love it or hate it - or don't know what it is - Pokemon Go is one of the most popular apps in the world right now. Here are some alternatives created intentionally to foster learning, making them a truly worthwhile time investment. For fun, and since Pokemon's from Japan, I'll count the 4 apps in Japanese - Ichi, Ni, San, Go! Ichi (One): Have story time anywhere with the FarFaria App I like this app because kids can read quietly and be … [Read more...]

What I Look For in a Handbag + I’m Giving 1 Away!

We received a free handbag to facilitate this review. We only give honest reviews and all opinions expressed are our own. It wasn't long ago that a friend of mine came to pick me up for dinner. We were heading to town when I got a glimpse at her adorable handbag. After eyeing it for a minute I had to ask her where she purchased it because I was now in love with it and had to have one for myself! You see, I'd been searching for the perfect handbag for quite some time, however I could never find one that was just right. Let me explain a little.... Things I look for in a handbag 1.) Easily cleaned- You have to be able to wipe the bag down on the outside because I hate when my bag looks dingy and dirty and I do not want to carry germs around with me. 2.) Bag must be roomy- There needs to be enough room for the kitchen sink (Kidding--sort of!) Seriously though, I am a busy gal and I need to be able to fit all of my mom stuff and my fun stuff into my bag at all times. 3.) Cute … [Read more...]

You Are NOT Alone! Bring Change 2 Mind #MindOurFuture

This post is brought to you by Bring Change 2 Mind. All opinions expressed are our own. Today I'd like to discuss something that a lot of people are uncomfortable talking about...mental illness. There are so many different forms of mental illness...depression, eating disorders, schizophrenia, ADD---the list goes on. I wanted to take a moment to let you all know about the mental illness that I have struggled with off and on over the years. Depression & Anxiety. Depression is a scary thing. As a stay at home mom, during my early years I had no idea how hard it would be. Often times people get the image of a stay at home mom as a carefree person who can sit around and do whatever they want all day long. It really isn't that glamorous. Let me start by saying that I am blessed and absolutely love being a stay at home mom, however there can be times when you feel overwhelmed and alone. While you may have a house full of kids day in and day out, you don't have that adult conversation … [Read more...]

Relieving Stress Without Side Effects #Review

We received product to facilitate this post. All opinions expressed are our own. We all face stress in our lives. There's really no way to completely avoid stress, although that sure would be nice, wouldn't it? Since we can't completely avoid the stress I decided that I was going to find a natural remedy for those super stressful moments in life. Let me just get real for you for a moment first... My husband and I tend to take on a lot. Now, we aren't always super busy and stressed, but there are times in our life when we take on so much that we don't really have time to sit down and really relax. (We haven't had a vacation in over 2 years!) We are currently flipping a house that is over 2,000 sq. ft. We are doing this while my husband works a full time job. I was homeschooling the boys (thankful for summer break!), and I run an online clothing boutique as well as helping with the house flip and taking care of my 5 boys. You tired yet? I am! haha! This is our life though and we … [Read more...]
