Sesame Chicken with Blue Dragon + DIY Fortune Sticks and a Giveaway!

blue dragon giveaway

“This post was sponsored by Blue Dragon as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.” When its time to start focusing on dinner, there are days when I am driven to get really creative in the kitchen and I'm motivated to produce something completely from scratch, and then there are days when I need some ideas and a lot of direction.  On really lazy days, ordering take-out is so appealing, but when I have hungry kids ... ...continue reading

New Giveaway! Win a $100 Fandago Gift Card to see Norm of the North!

norm of the north giveaway

“This post was sponsored by Lionsgate as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.” Its a big and scary world out there sometimes. My kids are facing all kinds of "firsts", and while some of these new experiences are thrilling (like their first sleepover and their first time celebrating New Year's Eve), some of these "firsts" are just frightening, like the first time flying on a plane, or riding on the school bus alone. My oldest boy has a really hard time with change and new ... ...continue reading

The Top 10 Things to Clean Before your Family Arrives + a $50 GIVEAWAY!

Pulizie natalizie

I've teamed up with Clean Ones for this post. The holidays just aren't the same if they don't involve getting together with the family!  I wouldn't have it any other way, but I still have minor panic attacks a few weeks beforehand when I think about the work that needs to be done before everyone gets here.  I worry that my cleanliness standards are on display and that I will have neglected something important in my hustle and bustle to make the place look festive and tidy.  I've put together a ... ...continue reading

Dreamup Toys – Building with Wooden Railway Block Platforms – Review & Giveaway!

dreamup toys giveaway

If there is one thing I know will go over extremely well with my boy when it comes to Christmas gifts, it's anything that has to do with trains.  It could be more tracks for his wooden set, another train engine, an engineer's hat, a train t-shirt...all winners for this train-lover of mine.  I knew he would absolutely flip for these Wooden Railway Block Platform from Dreamup Toys, which we received at no cost to facilitate this review.  When the shipping box arrived, I made the mistake of telling ... ...continue reading

Personalized Ornaments for You – Christmas Giveaway!

personalized ornaments for you

I've partnered with Personalized Ornaments For You for this review and giveaway. Who has already put up their tree?!  I know there are some Christmas enthusiasts who just can't contain their holiday passion and put up the red and green in mid-November.  If my husband wasn't such a "Christmas Purist" (which really means he just gets grumpy if anything jovial goes up before Thanksgiving), I'd have this house decked out top to bottom at the first opportunity.  I can still get my Christmas on in ... ...continue reading

Dansko Shoes Review & Giveaway! Win any pair of your choice!

Dansko shoes

I've teamed up with Dansko for this review and giveaway.  A friend of mine recently moved to Florida and left behind a pile of her winter clothes and shoes, since she surely wasn't going to need them.  Among the lot was a pair of black boots from Dansko, and from just slipping them on, I could tell they were no ordinary shoes.  They were just so completely comfortable and totally supportive!  I felt like I could walk around in them all day.  I had heard raving reviews from professionals in ... ...continue reading

holiday outfits

I just...can't...stop...taking pictures of my baby girl!  Since there might not be any daughters after her, sometimes I get a panicky feeling that this might be my last chance to dress up a little girl as much as I want.  Who knows, she might grow up to be tomboy and never want to wear another dress in her life!  For now, I'm taking over the dress up department and going all out because Baby's 1st Christmas only happens once!  I wanted to make sure I got some suuuuper adorable holiday outfits ... ...continue reading
