Out and About with Bundleme: keeping the kids warm!

Written in partnership with JJ Cole. I received a Bundleme to facilitate this post. Any opinions are my own!

I hate the cold, but it won’t keep us from going outside! With two toddlers at home, if we don’t get out of the house we ALL go crazy. Plus there’s just so much fun to be had in the fall! Apple orchards, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, leaf piles, hay rides, horse riding, beautiful arboretums, and our last stroller walks through the neighborhood before the snow comes!

Customize Your Ride: Build-a-Wagon by Radio Flyer

Radio Flyer is a brand name I’ve loved since I was a kid. For our son’s first Christmas, we got him one of those classic, wooden Radio Flyer wagons.

You can build-a-wagon, build-a-trike, or build-a-balance bike! How fun for your child to get involved, help pick out the features of their new wagon or bike online, and see the completed, customized toy in

Summer on the water: Discover Boating

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Last month I wrote about my ambassadorship with Discover Boating and all the fun ways our family loves to spend time on the water. Have you had a chance to explore the water this summer?

A couple of weeks ago I had an afternoon sail on a yacht with some of my girlfriends. We

Creating an Outdoor Oasis! (Pier 1 Giveaway)

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Pier 1 Imports. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating.

We moved into this house about a year and a half ago and still have so far to go on decorating! Seriously, we haven’t even hung photos on the walls yet. We have an amazing outdoor space so we love to have people over and host parties… our deck is huge with a pergola, there’s a playhouse and swingset for the kids, and

Discover Boating this Summer!

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

I am really excited to announce that I am an ambassador for Discover Boating this summer! I love being on the water and have since I was a little girl. My husband grew up with a lakehouse in WI so he’s a fish out of water, too! Now that we have kids of our own, we’re thrilled to share the fun with them and have them discover boating…

Happy Spring! Potted bulbs with Longfield Gardens

Can you believe it’s spring?! This winter has been pretty brutal and we still have some snow on the ground here (we hadn’t seen the grass since late November until now!) with freezing temps. I always hate the cold weather anyway, but I’m sooo over this season. I’ve already pulled out the flip flops and t-shirts and packed away the sweaters. Spring means hoodies, robins in the trees, iced coffee, walks outside with the kids, days at the park, and flowers. We can’t have spring without the flowers!

In the fall I wrote about

your noodle is showing!

Ryan loves being outside and anything with wheels… his mower, wheelbarrow, ride-ons, and bikes. The kid just takes off! He learned how to pedal last summer and was a pro on his trike. This summer, he’s working on a balance bike and loves his scooter. He has fallen off his bike once and wasn’t hurt, but did get scared. I’m thankful we haven’t had any bad spills yet, but I’m sure something is coming… knock on wood… it’s a right of passage for a kid, right? I remember falling off my bike on the
