I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.” I think it is FINALLY Spring and we couldn't be more excited about finally getting out of the house!  Its been a rough winter here in Boston, to say the least.  Even though there is not a blade of grass or bud to be set yet, we can not wait to hit the parks, have picnics and plan outdoor adventures. ... ...continue reading

8 Tips for new moms to survive those first few weeks.

Tips for new moms

Disclosure: I've teamed up with Babies "R" Us and P&G for this post.  I'm just entering my third trimester and starting to get a little anxious about having a new baby in the house. After all, it's been almost 3 years since we had a newborn to care for and I'm starting to make lists of all the things I'll need to prepare. It's amazing how those first few months after baby seem a bit foggy and hazy. Although I'd read (and read and read) about pregnancy and delivery, having a tiny baby to ... ...continue reading

Disclosure: I've teamed up with Step2 for this review.  My favorite time of the year is coming!

A wagon is GENIUS for tailgating with kids since you can haul supplies (and even your ... ...continue reading

SoCozy Hair Products for Kids Available at Target! #SoCozyAtTarget #TargetStyle #IC #ad

socozy 2

“I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for SoCozy. I received Target gift cards to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.”  I didn't think I'd be spending so much time doing my kids' hair in the morning since I have little boys instead of girls, but it is sometimes quite a feat!  They have some ridiculous bed head in the morning, and we've gone through all sorts of hair gel and sprays to tame it.  Lately, I've been thinking that perhaps their ... ...continue reading

Power Pochette Power Bank and Leather Wallet with RFID Protection! {TWO WINNERS!}

Power Pochette

I've teamed up with Digital Treasure for this sponsored giveaway. Have you ever heard the horror stories of people having their identity and credit card information stolen by thieves through RFID chips?  Here's the scenario - you're just standing there, say on a sidewalk or in a department store looking at something, and there are a lot of people around. You may not notice, but one of those people has a handheld device that can scan, decode, and capture your information as quickly as they can ... ...continue reading

The Backpack Diaper Bag from Twelve Little – Review & Giveaway!

twelve little courage

My diaper bag needs have certainly changed over the years.  With three kids, instead of a bag that carries just newborn accessories, I now need a bag that can hold a variety of toddler snacks, spare diapers in two sizes, sippy cups, and distraction toys on top of all that a baby needs, and that list is anything but short and sweet.  I've also realized that with several people to transport around on our errands, and not any extra hands, I've GOT to have a hands-free bag that stays up on my ... ...continue reading

Kideos – the best and safest video app for kids! {Plus, an Amazon Gift Card GIVEAWAY!}


I've teamed up with Kideos for this post.  Can we talk about kids and YouTube? Have you ever given your child access to the wild world of YouTube? I have to confess that I allow my little guy to surf the video platform from time to time. It all started when we went out to dinner one night and he was in a fussy mood. Normally he plays quietly with his Thomas & Friends miniature engines, but on this particular night he was making quite a scene. Since I didn't have any movies or kid friendly ... ...continue reading

Mini Neapolitan Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches!

donuts 7

Isn't it interesting how certain flavors or desserts just don't sound appealing at certain times of the year?  Imagine serving gingerbread and pumpkin pie at a summer picnic or watermelon popsicles at a Christmas party.  Some treats are just meant for certain seasons!  With the weather getting more pleasant and spring is on the horizon, I'm craving cold and slightly messy desserts in creamy pretty colors, and you know what that means...ice cream!  I decided to combine two of my latest favorite ... ...continue reading

Baby Video Monitor… Buy it or Skip it? {PLUS, a GIVEAWAY from Summer Infant!}


I've teamed up with Summer Infant for this post. When I was registering for my little guy (a little over 3 years ago now... where has the time gone?!), a friend took at look at my list and told me to scratch off the $30 audio monitor I'd chosen and recommended adding a video monitor. Truthfully, I thought the video monitoring was overkill. Wouldn't audio monitoring be sufficient? She told me I'd thank her later and I decided I might as well register for one... if someone bought it then great, ... ...continue reading
