~This post was written in partnership with Anjolee. Diamond jewelry photos are theirs. All opinions are my own.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, let’s celebrate a girl’s best friend… diamonds! My husband got my a gorgeous heart-shaped diamond necklace for Valentine’s Day last year—I almost never take it off! There are a lot of options when it comes to jewelry and of course there are other beautiful stones, but I don’t think you can ever go wrong with a diamond!

From fine jewelry manufacturer Anjolee, here are my top 10 diamond jewelry gifts

Natural remedies for kids: Zarbee’s (coupon)

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Zarbee’s Naturals (#ZarbeesCough). I received product samples and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Did you know that about 10,000 kids every year are sent to the emergency room from accidental cough syrup overdoses? In 2007 the FDA stated these products were not safe for young children and many were then removed from store shelves or were labeled for ages 4 and up. So when you have little ones that need relief, where do you find it? It

Meet Oreo & Dolce! (back seat barrier for dogs)

Product was received to facilitate this review of the back seat barrier for dogs. Article is written by blog contributor, Tara S, and all opinions & photos are her own!

Meet Oreo and Dolce

There is nothing more uncomfortable than a 60lb Boxer trying to straddle your lap in the passenger seat of a car. Before my husband and I met, his Boxer (Oreo) would always get to sit in the passenger seat during car rides. Needless to say, Oreo wasn’t the happiest camper when I came into their life and

Canvas prints of the kids for our new office

I love taking photos of the kids and we have professional family photos taken at least once a year. I upload them to my computer and most of the time that’s where they sit. If I’m on top of things (I’m not.) they get uploaded to Facebook for friends and family to see or I use some in a blog post… but I want them printed and displayed in our home!

I love canvas prints because they add a special touch to your photo wall—something different to stand out from printed photos. And the

Will you be my Valentine?!

I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Cardstore.com. I received complimentary cards and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

I love Valentine’s Day. I know it’s one of the more “minor” holidays without as much hurrah, but I think it’s one of the best! I mean, what’s better than love and showing others how much you love them?! Not to sound all sappy… I just think it’s a day to show your respect for having certain people in your life. I loved it as

Curious Critters Volume Two by David FitzSimmons

Product was received to facilitate this review of Curious Critters. All opinions are my own.

A couple of years ago we received the book Curious Critters by David FitzSimmons. Ryan was young and we were still reading basic board books, but this book quickly became a favorite. It was a must-read every day—or, really, like 12 times a day, haha. He was fascinated by the large and bright photographs, the interesting animals, and learning all of their names.

#UnShameYourPet with STAINMASTER PetProtect

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for STAINMASTER. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

My babies before I had actual babies were our cats. I’ve had them for about 8 years, they moved to Iowa with me when I was in college, they brought my husband over to the dark side 😉 (he was NOT a cat person before!), and they’ve stuck by us when we had 2 kids and not as much time for them. They are definitely my original babies! My
