Thirty One Gifts #Giveaway

Who doesn’t love a simple solution to a messy problem?  CDs can be bulky, messy and a downright eyesore at times.  Not only that, but if a little one gets their hands on the CD, it could be done forever.  Enter in Thirty-One!   Thirty-One offers stylish, affordable products that are exclusive to their company.  From their signature purses and totes to storage solutions that help organize your life, you’ll find something to fit every personality and situation!  Here is the adorable Littles Carryall, to simplify the messy CD problem.  Can you believe all those CDs fit in that one little pouch?


Thirty-One develops products built on the idea that each item must be functional, fashionable and affordable with many different uses {and of course make great gifts}!  One fun feature of Thirty-One is that most of their products can be personalized!!

Our Summer Catalog launched on May 1st… be sure to check it out! This month, for every $31 you spend, get the super useful All-In-One Organizer for just $5!! It is available in an exclusive fun print just for the month of May, in addition to all the regular prints available.

Not only are the products amazing, but the opportunity is amazing as well!  Jillian started her Thirty-One business in 2010 as a way to get out of the house once or twice a month for some “me time”.  Now 2 years later she finds herself using Thirty-One as a means to support her and her three small children.  Who would have thought starting a business would actually bring calm, growth, and encouragement to a person’s life?  That’s exactly what happened.  Jillian went from struggling month to month, to joining a group of women that she loves working with, making relationships that will outlast any tote or product, increasing the time she has to spend with her children, gaining personal confidence, and growing leaps and bounds in her faith.

Jillian wanted to share her Thirty-One story with you because she knows how it is changing her life and now is an amazing time that Thirty-One could change yours.

8 Tips for Bringing Baby Swimming (#Giveaway)

Get more swimming in every Sam’s® Club Pack of Huggies®

Summer’s pretty much here (although today is definitely an exception in CT) and with summer comes lots and lots of water play for people of all ages, including babies.  Babies swimming need to have a diaper on, to contain any…um…messes they may produce while in the water.  No matter what kind of swim diaper you use, parents, PLEASE use one. They serve an important purpose.

Now, with that out of the way, let’s discuss some important things.  I know that you probably have chosen a super cute bathing suit for your little one, and probably some cute shoes to protect their little piggies from hot sand, concrete, etc…

But there ARE actually other things to consider when preparing to take your baby swimming.  It’s not just about looking adorable (they look adorable all of the time, I know. Trust me.  There’s not much cuter than some babies in little tiny swimsuits squirming around.)  but it’s also important to keep our little ones SAFE in the sun- both in and out of the water.

#1 SUNSCREEN.  Buy it, use it, use it again and then use it some more.  I can’t emphasize this enough.  I grew up in the 70s and 80s.  I used sunTAN lotion.  The sun’s rays didn’t do so much damage to us as it will to our kids.  Protect their sensitive skin.  We only get one go with the skin thing, so let’s do what we can to protect it. (My helpful tip is to get into the habit in late spring of putting sunscreen on your kids while you get them dressed for the day- reapply as necessary but at least you’re off to a good start.  If you make it part of a routine, it may not bug them much).

#2 HATS Find a hat your baby will wear that keeps the sun out of their eyes.  We don’t like having the sun in our eyes, why would they?  Hats are also an adorable accessory.  If your child won’t keep a hat on like one of mine did…put the sunscreen right on their head (my kids were baldies).  Have you ever had a sunburn on your head?  It will drive you all kinds of crazy and be hot, itchy and painful.  No need to inflict that on the little ones.

#3 PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH and remember that #1 and #2 are just as important for mom and dad as they are for baby.  Modeling the right behaviors goes a very, very long way.  (Note to self- work on this).

#4 TOWELS Bring at least 2 towels for your little one.  Wet towels can be chilly and little ones don’t warm up as fast as we do.  Even if you just keep a smaller towel to dry them with, and wrap them in the larger one.

#5 BABY SPOT- Make sure wherever you go- pool, lake, ocean, beach, etc…bring  a large blanket for baby to play on, or a pack n play for them to hang out in – try to provide some shade, too.  An umbrella, placing their area under a tree are both great ways to do this.

#6 BABY TOYS– Listen, if you are at the beach, your baby is almost, 100% certain, going to eat some sand.  It’s kind of like a rite of passage.  But the sand may bore him or her after a few minutes, so be sure to grab some age-appropriate toys to keep your little one occupied.  A pail and some empty cups will occupy most kids for a very long time.

#7 BABY POWDER (and by powder I mean cornstarch) — this one is a BIG parenting secret.  (Look at me sharing these big secrets today!!)   Powder helps get wet sand off of your feet.  It makes the entire process of leaving the beach far easier.  I’m sure half of it will end up on the floor of your car, but I’ll let you solve that problem on your own.

#8 WATER- Just because baby is playing in and around water doesn’t mean s/he is getting enough hydration.  Be sure to keep those fluids coming all day long!! (this goes for parents, too)
Did you know that most pools and swimming facilities require the use of swim pants? If you plan on partaking in some swim time fun with your little one this spring & summer, pick up some Huggies® Little Swimmers at Sams® Club where you can get the lowest price.

Mo Willem’s Pigeon and Pals: Complete Cartoon Collection, Vol. 1&2 DVD #Giveaway

MO WILLEM’S PIGEON AND PALS: COMPLETE CARTOON COLLECTION, VOL 1&2. came to DVD on April 17, 2012.  Mo Willem and his hilarious  children’s stories were an instant hit with everyone in my family, from the very first time we opened the cover of our first Mo Willem book, Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay up Late.  We were hooked, and are always delighted when Mr. Willem comes out with something new to delight his readers.  The kids find the stories funny, we adults find the stories funny, and it makes snuggling and reading with the kids that much more enjoyable!

Having Pigeon and Knuffle Bunny on our TV screen has been just as much fun as the beloved picture books that we’ve read hundreds of times.  The kids thought it was so much fun to watch the featurette- I think their favorite (maybe mine) was “Getting to Know Mo Willems.”

Across two discs and six stories, Willems’ tales – highlighted by “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!” and “The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog!” — jump off the screen in inimitable fashion! Enhanced by Scholastic’s ever-popular read-along function which helps to strengthen early reading skills, the sure-to-be-treasured collection also includes faithful and award-winning adaptations of other Willems’ best-sellers, including “Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale” (in both English and Spanish) and “Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity”, “Leonardo the Terrible Monster” and “Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed”. Made all the more enriching and engaging, PIGEON AND PALS also includes a multitude of bonus featurettes, as well as an interview with the author himself!


· Featurette: “Getting to Know Mo Willems”
· Featurette: “Animating Pigeon”
· Featurette: “Mo and Pigeon Visit a School”

One reader will win  Mo Willem’s Pigeon and Pals: Complete Cartoon Collection, Vol. 1&2 DVD!
