Give the Gift of Music: SOL REPUBLIC Tracks Air giveaway

One of my favorite things in life is MUSIC. It can always pick me up and make me happy, I love to sing along (alone in the car, ha), and who couldn’t use a little dance party once in awhile?! Needless to say, I’m pretty picky about sound. I’ll thank my mom for that trait. My tech-y music toys have to sound amazing. That’s why I am obsessed with everything from SOL REPUBLIC.

We’ve tried their wireless speakers and now their wireless headphones, the Tracks Air. AHHHHH-mazing. Seriously. They’re “on-ear” headphones,

The Flutterbye Fairy: Chosen By Kids!

Not too long ago I shared information about the upcoming #ChosenByKids event at local Walmart stores, where your kids could be come official toy testers! Did you attend your local event? I did! I had checked out some of the toys on the hot list this year and wanted to see them in person. Thanks to Tinkerbell, my kids both love fairies, so I wanted to see what the new Flutterbye Fairy was all about–she flies?!

Find the latest cameras and camcorders at Best Buy

Years ago I had an old camera that got the job done, but I’d been eyeing an upgrade to a DSLR for quite some time. I finally made the leap when my best friend was getting married. I really wanted to take some nice photos at the wedding! Plus, I was pregnant with our first and knew the new camera would be an investment in beautiful baby and family photos. I actually walked into Best Buy the morning of my friend’s wedding and said, “That one. The Nikon. I want it.” They said, “you

Mom Date Day Break: Coffee Cake Muffins & McCafe Coffee

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #McCafeMyWay #CollectiveBias

I spend my days cleaning up messes (lots of them. everywhere.), changing diapers, playing “go fish,” watching Daniel Tiger (meow meow) and Rescue Bots, and sometimes speaking to no one over the age of 4. Sometimes…. I feel like I’m losing my mind. Just a little lot. It took me far too long to realize that I need to also take care of MYSELF. I need to create “me time” and do

Play Osmo: the coolest new interactive iPad game

I’ll admit that both of my kids are iPad obsessed. One of Ryan’s favorite things to do is search the app store for awesome new games to play. He’s almost 5 and we do money counting games, math, sight words, puzzles, and some critical thinking games that are even hard for me. Yes, we play some Angry Birds, too 😉 Rebecca is almost 3 and likes anything Disney or watching Daniel Tiger, meow meow. While I do feel they’re learning on these games, sometimes I’d like to get them off the iPad and back

Recycling Tips to Make it a Habit #TurnItGreen!

We’ve always been good about recycling as much as we can, limiting waste, and reusing when possible. I mean, we both have environmental related degrees (his in engineering, mine in the sciences) so what can you expect?! There are all kinds of tips and tricks out there to teach your kids about recycling, but I think learning by doing is the best way! Kids will grow up doing what they know. If recycling is always a part of our lives, it will be a part of theirs—because it’s just what you do. I partnered
