Sleep Better With Spider-Man By Your Side #ad #JFShome

This is a sponsored review. All opinions expressed are our own. We only give honest reviews, and our posts often contain affiliate links. Thanks! When you have a house full of little boys (like I do), or even if you only have one, you know how important it is to be tucked into bed safely at night. Our boys have all been into super heroes at one point in their life and Spider-Man has always been at the top of their list of super heroes! It's common for young children to be scared of the dark and to want comfort at bedtime. We have found with our children that there are some things we could do to make bedtime a little easier and a little less stressful for everyone in the house. I thought I would list a few below. Better Bedtime Routine With Spider-Man: #1- Find a special comfort object for your child. Since our boys love super heroes so much, we found that the Spider-Man Pillow Buddy made a great comfort toy for them at night. Not only is he super cuddly, but he's a super hero, … [Read more...]

Toys That Travel Well—Review

We received toys to review. All opinions expressed are our own. If you have kids you know how important it can be to keep them entertained when you are traveling. It's asking a lot for children (especially young children) to sit for a long period of time without having something to occupy them. I mean, unless you love hearing, "Are we there yet?" a million times over and over during the trip, then you are probably going to want to be prepared before hopping into the car and heading out the door. We received PLAYMOBIL's carry cases for review, and I couldn't be more thrilled at the perfect size and fun packed in these little cases. They are also great for trips to Grandparents or when we go to work at one of the houses we are renovating. The cases are themed, so you can find a theme that fits your child's interests and personality. When your child is finished playing they can simply place everything back into the carry case, snap it closed and set it aside for the next time … [Read more...]

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...]

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...]

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...]

Stock Up Now #AvoidTheOops

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Walmart No one ever likes to be unprepared, especially when there are spills or accidents. That is why I'm here to tell you how I avoid the oops and how you can avoid those oops moments as well. Let me start by saying that I do not like unexpected things and I hate to be unprepared. That is why I like to stock up on the things that our family uses on a regular basis. We have an extra closet in our home that we fill with items such as paper towels, toilet paper, paper plates, extra soaps and so forth. I'm busy enough with sports, house flipping, blogs, my boutique, play dates, homeschool gatherings and so forth that I simply don't have the time to run out to purchase these items on a regular basis. I think that's the biggest problem we all have...we are simply too busy, and that's why we often run out of things that we use on a regular basis. I've been there! But, we don't have to be there! What if I told you that I could help save time … [Read more...]
