Hello Sunshine! ThinkFun giveaway

I love ThinkFun and their educational games for kids… we have a few of them. We recently received Hello Sunshine! and I’m happy to report that it’s another favorite and we definitely recommend it!

It’s for ages 18 months and up so I wondered how my 3-year-old son would like it. It’s definitely educational and helps kids learn concepts like: next to, in, behind, on top, under, etc. My son knows the meaning of those words, but Hello Sunshine! is still educational for him

HGG: Wonder Forge games {giveaway}

I’m excited to share this one with you today because I love playing games with the kids! Ryan gets to excited because he’s at just the right age to understand and have fun with them.

it’s family game night! {giveaway}

Not too long ago a bloggy friend asked on her facebook page if anyone still played board games. She thought so, but her husband argued otherwise. I replied immediately–YES! I love board games and I don’t think they’re just for kids. My husband and I will play together and his side of the family are game players, too. It’s not unusual for us all to get together for a game night after little children go to bed! It’s one of my favorite ways to spend friend and family time.

Are you ready to bloom? Get inspired…

I love paper because I love to-do lists. I’m pretty terrible at getting anything done unless I write it down and make a plan. But these days, I’m always on the computer and who knows where the crap I put that piece of paper. Ryan probably ate it. Or flushed it down the toilet.

Especially with being pregnant, there are a LOT of to-dos to keep track of… taking my prenatals every day (I’m terrible at that), trying to drink more water, doing my prenatal yoga, practicing hypnobabies, preparing for the new baby, decorating
