School Shopping Made Easy with Sears

I participated in this sponsored campaign for SEARS. All opinions stated are my own. I can't believe it's already time for the kids to head off to school. Every year I swear the summer gets shorter and shorter. We just started our back-to-school shopping, and for once it's been super easy. This week has been super hot, but we needed to get out of the house. The mall is always nice and … [Read more...]

Red White & Blue Glitter Slime

I think July is my favorite month. It's the one month my kids are all home from school for the entire month and our family probably spends the most time together just relaxing and enjoying each other's company. The kids asked to make some glitter slime, and we thought we'd get a little patriotic while we were at it. We love to make slime and make it often, so we had everything we needed … [Read more...]

Finding Dory and Nemo Valentine’s Drop Box Craft with Kleenex

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc., Kimberly Clark, and Disney. All opinions are mine alone. #FamilyMovieWithKleenex #CollectiveBias Things have been so crazy around here. Our schedule has been anything but productive. We've had sickness make its rounds through everyone, and we've also had snow day after snow day after snow day. Sawyer's classroom is having a party next week … [Read more...]

Penguin Valentine Hug Heart-Shaped Craft

I love making holiday crafts with my kids. This Valentine's Day we have been remaking all the old crafts my other boys made when they were younger. We made a bunch of heart-shaped flower Valentine's for Sawyer's classroom and for his teacher we made them all animals made from all hearts like this cute Penguin Valentine. To me, this sweet penguin always looked like it was giving a … [Read more...]

Puppy Love Valentine for Kids – Heart Shaped Dog Craft

I love making Valentine's Day projects with my boys. When Johnny was little, he would come home with the cutest little crafts from daycare. When I had my other boys, I always made sure to make my favorites with them. This heart shaped dog craft is always on the list. One year when Johnny was in elementary school, we made these for hi entire class in a smaller size. This craft is fun for all … [Read more...]

Nintendo 3DS XL Entertains Us For Hours

Nintendo of America provided me with 3DS XL for review. All opinions and thoughts are my own. I don't know about you, but I have been a long time fan of the products put out by Nintendo. One of the very best holiday gifts I ever received as a kid was the original NES system. Over time, technology has changed and so has the product offerings by Nintendo. My love has remained and my family so … [Read more...]

The K’NEX Wild Whiplash Roller Coaster is a Huge Hit This Season

I'm so tired of my boys sitting around with screens in their faces all the time. They're all frustrated with me since I put an 'hour a day' rule out there. I want them downstairs communicating and spending time together when they aren't working on school things. Finding things they could do together was the hardest part. When this K'NEX Wild Whiplash Roller Coaster showed up on our front step they … [Read more...]

Give This Tuesday With Carters Pajamas

I love Christmastime. I love pulling out all the pretty holiday decor and spending time with my family. I love this time of year because it's a time of year when we have lots of traditions. One of my favorite traditions is giving my boys brand new jammies on Christmas Eve along with a movie. My mom did it for me and I hope my boys continue the tradition with their children. Carters pajamas are my … [Read more...]

Beddy’s Is The Perfect All In One Bedding For Everyone

My little Halli is all grown up. She is 3 1/2 and is super tall for her age. She looks way bigger than she is and has a big personality to match. Halli had outgrown her little toddler bed and was so super ready for a new big girl bed. I was so sad to see her little bed go away but I knew it was time. While we were talking about getting her a new bed the only request she had was that it would be … [Read more...]
