Toys That Are Approved By Moms!

tegu toys

  When I was growing up we didn't have the luxury of firing up our iPad and playing games. We played with wooden blocks and sorting toys when I was little, and it was great! There's just something about those old toys that can't be beat! Yeah, they might have been a bit boring compared to today's technology, but they kept our creative juices flowing and allowed us to use our imaginations and have fun! One of the oldest and most reliable toys that children have played with for centuries is the simple wooden block. It's versatile, safe and most of all fun. While standard wooden blocks are still fun, there have been major innovations and advancements in technology to bring us to where we are now. The Tegu blocks are an awesome modern twist on a classic toy. These blocks may look simple at first glance, but only when you start to play with them do you realize truly how awesome they are. Tegu blocks come with tiny magnets embedded in the blocks, which means that kids of any can … [Read more...]

Give-Get-Save Money With Giving Assistant

Giving Assistant screen

We want to thank Giving Assistant for sponsoring this post. All opinions expressed are our own. As a busy Mom of 5 boys I'm always looking for ways to save money, but I'm also always trying to help others out. I have what my family likes to call a caring heart. I don't talk about it much, and I definitely think I got it from my mother because (as many people will tell you) she would give you the last dollar in her pocket if she felt like you needed it, even if it meant she couldn't make it home from work that day. It's just how she is and I love that about her. Recently I was introduced to Giving Assistant and it really peaked my interest the minute I heard about it. What is Giving Assistant? Giving Assistant is a website where you can go to make all of your online purchases while giving back to your favorite charities---AND saving money yourself! Here's how Giving Assistant Works Retailers pay Giving Assistant commission for purchases that come from their website. For … [Read more...]

Are You Focusing on the Problem or the Solution?

Take On the giant

We had a bible study over the weekend. We discussed David and Goliath. Most of you know the story, but let's re-cap just a bit. So, Goliath is this huge giant that everyone is intimidated by. He has never been defeated and then along comes little old David. I mean, can you imagine what people are thinking when David says that he is willing to fight the giant? I bet some of them even laughed. But David didn't care what others thought. He knew that he wasn't fighting the giant alone and he wasn't scared. With one tiny stone he was able to defeat the giant. Now, think about your life. Think about the troubles you have and the storms that seem to come in just when things are starting to look good. How often do you find yourself trying to fight that battle alone? How often do you find yourself focusing on the problem over and over again? And for what? What if, instead of focusing on the problem, you were to focus on the solution? What if, instead of immediately falling to your knees … [Read more...]

Keeping Children Safe While They Explore Technology W/ OurPact

parental-control-app-ourpact

“I’m excited to introduce you today to a wonderfully helpful app, OurPact. All opinions are my own.“ Keeping my children safe is very important to me. Children are young and vulnerable and yet they are so smart and pick up on things so easily, especially when it comes to technology. I can remember my parents getting their first computer. Somehow my siblings and I were able to quickly figure things out while my parents just sat back and scratched their heads in frustration. Why could we pick up on these things at such a young age while our parents struggled to learn? I think (and this is just my opinion), that since we have been introduced to technology at young ages we are more apt to learning and picking up at a quicker pace. It just sort of comes natural to us. I've noticed with my own children that they were able to pick up an iPod, iPad or iPhone and quickly make their way to different apps and programs on the phone. They can make a call and connect to the internet at such … [Read more...]

I’ll Drive All Over Just To Get My Dunkin’ Donuts!

Chicken Apple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich Lifestyle 1

This message is brought to you by Dunkin' Donuts. All opinions expressed are my own. One year while on vacation I convinced my husband to turn into a Dunkin' Donuts parking lot. He says it was the first day my addiction, I mean love, for coffee really blossomed! I mean, I've always enjoyed a good cup of coffee, but I had never (in all of my life) had a cup of coffee that tasted like Dunkin' Donuts. Ok, now that you know how much I love Dunkin' Donuts coffee, I'm going to get to the point. So, when I was asked if I'd like to drive to Dunkin' Donuts to try the Chicken Apple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich that they were bringing back to kick off the New Year, you can bet I was jumping for joy! I didn't care that I had to drive a little over an hour to get to the closest Dunkin' Donuts. Oh no, I didn't care at all. As a matter of fact, I felt this was the PERFECT opportunity for me to enjoy a delicious cup of goodness--coffee. So, my sister wanted to sleep in a bit (we went over the … [Read more...]

Don’t Put Off Until Tomorrow What You Can Do Today

Don't put off until tomorrowwhat you can do today.

We've all got schedules. We've got commitments that we feel we can't break. We have play dates, doctor's appointments, lunch dates, work, recitals, practices...I could go on and on, but I'll stop there. I think I got the point across that we are all busy, right? Okay, now take a minute to think about how you might be putting something off. Maybe it's something you've been dreaming about for a long time? Maybe it's working on a project that you've been wanting to complete, or maybe it's simply playing with your child. Have you been telling yourself that you'll do it tomorrow? ...But then tomorrow never comes, right? Now, step back for one moment and evaluate what you've been doing with your time. Have you been spending time on social media? Have you been keeping up with the Kardashians or some other television show? Maybe it's sports you've been following and keeping up with? While these things are all great, and I'm not saying that we don't need to sit back, relax and do … [Read more...]
