Inspired By Finn Review

I have been dying to try out an amber teething necklace for my new little one, and for my toddler who is getting his 2 year molars.  I have heard how wonderful they are, and I just love the idea of using a natural product to help soothe tooth pain instead of medication.  I ran ...

Cottonelle Moist Wipes #GetFresh

Sometimes, you need that fresh feeling between showers- not always possible. I know that Cottonelle Fresh Wipes are meant for the bathroom but we actually keep them in the back of my van in the dispenser, because its where we seem to need them the most.   Especially since I've been very pregnant through three very ...

Dog Collar Charms #DogCollarCharms

Our boy Tobey is lacking in accessories.  I'll be the first to admit it.  Poor guy.  He's got a few holiday bandanas but nothing fun or snazzy.  We all accessorize (ok maybe Mr. Bargains isn't big into accessorizing, but the rest of us are...) so why not include poor Tobey?  I figured a fun charm ...

Bella Blu Maternity Review

I've been doing a lot of online shopping for maternity and baby items, especially since I have been put on bedrest (what better excuse to shop!). Needless to say, I have a lot of experience ordering from many, many different online shops. I recently reviewed some items from Bella Blu Maternity I ...

home_page_No-text-1012x468

As summer approaches I like to try to build my arsenal of crafts and activities for the kids. I find that summer is always exciting for the kids for the first 2 weeks and then boredom kicks in. It's always nice to pull out a brand new activity in the afternoon. ...

Tea Collection Review

The clothing company Tea Collection offers the most beautiful girls, boys, baby, womens and gift products.  The style and quality of their clothing is outstanding.  I just love to find a baby and children's clothier that offers plain, modern styles that aren't over embellished.  These designs are right up my aisle. I had the opportunity to ...

More on Cars 2, Winnie the Pooh, The Help, and my colleagues for the trip!

My flights are booked.  I'm going to LA.  I'm going on a business trip and I'm travelling without my husband or my children.  I've never been away from my kids- this will be a huge step for all of us- but a good one!! I can't even wait for this trip, for the obvious reasons, but ...

Luna Bar Review

As a pregnant woman (or heck, anytime really!) I am constantly looking for a healthy snack that I can easily reach for or stick in my bag. For me, a LUNA bar is the perfect choice. Since the LUNA bar is designed for women it contains nutrients like folic acid and calcium. I also like ...

Storytime for Toys for Tots Literacy with The UPS Store #ToysforTotsLiteracy

Wednesday morning of this week, Julie from A Year with Mom and Dad and I were the co-hosts of a very special storytime held at a local library on behalf of The UPS Store to raise money, donations and awareness for the Toys for Tots Literacy Campaign.  Until this opportunity arose, I was 100% unaware ...

We've ALL had a time when we didn't get to scrubbing a dish or pot or pan and had to face the mess the next day.  Usually this means scrubbing, scrubbing and scrubbing some more, a little soaking, and maybe doing all of this over again. I found something that will make those of us who ...
