5 (cool) FROZEN gifts

I don’t know about your kids (or YOU), but this family is FROZEN obsessed. I might be a little embarrassed about how many times I’ve seen it and how I know every word to every song…. “Let It Go?” Obviously a favorite in the shower.

So clearly FROZEN made our holiday wish lists, as I’m sure it’s on many kids’ lists this season! But WHAT are you getting?! There are so many FROZEN gifts out there… how to choose?! I love Target (who doesn’t?!) so I partnered with them to bring you these hot

Building Immune Support this Winter

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Zarbee’s Naturals. I received a product and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

If the cold isn’t bad enough, winter also brings colds and illness to this house! The past TWO Christmases both kids have been sick and Ryan’s birthday is two days after Christmas and he hasn’t felt too hot during that either—it’s heartbreaking. I am so determined to keep the family healthy this year! I want to enjoy the festive family time, birthdays, and our vacation to CO

Holiday fashions with OshKosh B’gosh (coupon)

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’gosh. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

There are three main reasons OshKosh B’gosh is always one of my go-to brands for our kids: it’s quality clothing that’s durable and affordable, it’s always age appropriate (0-12), and it’s CUTE. I wore OshKosh when I was litte—I remember my mom saving to shop at OshKosh B’gosh and outfits from there were a special treat! We still have some

The hottest game this year: LeapTV by LeapFrog

I received free products in order to host the LeapFrog sponsored MommyParty. The opinions expressed here are my own.

The new LeapTV by LeapFrog is definitely the must-have holiday wish list toy for kids! We recently had friends over to try it out and it was a BIG hit, we all love it, and it’s now on their wish lists!

Top 9 educational toys from Discovery Toys

Do you remember playing with Discovery Toys when you were a kid? I do and I’m thrilled to be buying them now for my kids! You must at least remember their marbleworks toy—it’s still the best!

We had some educational toy that I was obsessed with—like word problems, matching, simple math kind of things. They don’t have it anymore, but I’d say their current “It’s a Match” game is the closest thing to it.

So I came up with a list of my favorite education toys from Discovery Toys. My friend

Safe and natural nasal congestion relief with CLEARinse (giveaway)

It can be a nasty time of year–with all the back-to-school germs and the cold weather. Both of our kids have already been hit with colds and I know we probably aren’t done with them this season. It’s heartbreaking to see your kids sick and it’s worse when there isn’t much you can do to help.

Little ones aren’t so great at blowing their noses. When their noses get all stuffy, it’s hard for them to breathe, eat, sleep… and that means it’s hard for me to sleep, too! Many of the effective

Halloween with Animal Jam: Night of the Phantoms

T-minus 4 days to Halloween! We’ve been scarfing all-things-pumpkin, working on costumes, and decorating with spiderwebs and skeletons. Now let’s have some fun!

Ryan heads to Animal Jam for interactive playground fun and I head to their Academy for all kinds of new ideas on crafts and activities. So, what do they have up their sleeve for Halloween? LOTS OF FUN!

Night of the Phantoms!

You can find an entire Pinterest board of Halloween crafts. I had Ryan (our 4-year-old) look through and decide
