LEGO KidsFest Coming to Cleveland, OH (Giveaway)


One thing that my children love is building with LEGO's and I must say that I enjoy it as well. I love how you can use your imagination and create something that is completely you. You don't have to follow a manual you can just build whatever you want. My children usually enter a LEGO display in the local county fair every year as well. When my boys heard that the LEGO KidsFest was coming to Ohio they were super excited and have been asking to go. I can't wait to surprise them with going to this wonderful event!

Award-winning LEGO KidsFest returns to Cleveland!

Sponsor Spotlight: Jackpot Candles


I am big fan of candles and love having my home smelling wonderful and inviting. With having asthma I have a hard time getting candles that do not bother me. Luckily I have discovered that soy candles do not bother my asthma. Though certain strong scents whether made with soy wax or not still do bother me so I am cautious when picking out my scents. My newest candle that I am currently burning and have fallen in love with is a Jackpot Candles Warm Apple Pie.  I love how this candle makes my house smell like there is apple pie cooking in the oven.

Sponsor Spotlight: dapple


With having a large family one thing that seems to never end in my house is cleaning. I am probably right in guessing that I am not alone in this statement. Even though the cleaning never seems to end I try to keep up with it while using products that are safe for my family and pets. I received several dapple products to try for the Baby & Beyond Giveaway Event.

Sponsor Spotlight: Ack Wraps


One thing I have discovered from being a mom is it can be hard to multi-task some things. I mean when you are tot chasing, while trying to nurse and do laundry or dishes it can become a bit difficult to do all at the same time. But if you wear your little one it makes thing a bit easier for you to get things done. You can easily wear the little one who needs nursed while you are tot chasing and doing laundry and dishes.

3 Back-to-School Morning Routine Tips For the Whole Family



Dogs and their human companions have something very important in common: both are creatures of habit. 

With school about to start—it's the perfect time to make sure the whole family gets off on the right paw with the right habits at the start of the day. (And it's so much more fun when the whole family is involved!)

Purrfect Together: Celebrate the Bond Between You and Your Kitty This September



September is Happy Healthy Cat Month—and there's never been a better time to show our cats some extra love. Recently, the cat lovers at Meow Mix ran the Purrfect Together Survey, which asked cat parents around the country about their special bond with their four-legged friends. Here are some of the meow-nificent results:
83% of cats take naps with their humans
This is surprising—and not because 83% of people love napping with kitty. The bigger question is: Who are the 17% of deprived humans who don't get to experience the joy of napping with their cats?

#woofyeah moments with Pup-peroni


 I will have to admit, I'm one of those crazy "dog mothers". I've had my Ranger before I had my children. She is 16 Years old and believe me, you can tell. She gets spoiled with treats because she's still my baby. Pup-Peroni treats are a perfect snack for Ranger because they have so many different flavors. She has got to the point that she will get a treat from me in the morning and then go to each of the boys and "tell them" that she hasn't had a treat. With the Pup-peroni treats it's not a big deal because they are only 24 calories, which is significantly less than some of the competition treats. Ranger is lucky because she doesn't have to do fancy tricks to get her Pup-peroni treats like her brother Bruno does. Pup-peroni is the perfect size that we can toss them and make Bruno jump and he catches it. With having 10+ flavors, I'm sure you can find a flavor of Pup-peroni for your dog.

Start Your Mornings with Mediterra Bars

 I'm always running out the door in the mornings. I got the Mediterra Bars and was excited to try them. I grabbed my coffee and a Mediterra Bar and ran out the door. There were a few to choose from so, I grabbed two. Boy o boy was that first bar yummy. I figured it would taste like flavored cardboard like other nutrition bars. I was way wrong. Loaded with fiber, nutrients and vitamins, the Mediterra Bars are also gluten free and NON GMO. The Mediterra Nutrition Sesame Energy Nutrition Bars Pistachio and Honey was my favorite bar out of the ones I tried. I honestly have to say this bar is the one I'm going to keep as a go to snack.

Build the "perfect" lunchbox with Welch's


With having three kids in school packing the "perfect" lunch for each one is a bit different. As like anyone they all have different likes and dislikes. But one thing they all agree on for their lunch is Welch's fruit snacks! Though they each have a different flavors they like, they all agree that they want Welch's fruit snacks in their lunches.

Sponsor Spotlight: The Perfect Plant

The Perfect Plant

 I am one of the lucky ones who has a semi-green thumb and am able to get my house plants to thrive. But I know a lot of people struggle with keeping houseplants thriving or even alive. What would you say if I told you that I have the "Perfect Plant" for you if you are one who struggles to keep houseplants alive. It is called an "airplant" and it requires no dirt, in-direct sunlight and waterings (mistings) only once a week.

Sponsor Spotlight: Baby Magic


When it comes to taking care of a new baby one brand that instantly pops into my head is Baby Magic. It is a brand that has been around for many years 65 years to be exact and been used on many babies including myself. When I was pregnant with Peanut and got the opportunity to work with Baby Magic for the Baby & Beyond Giveaway Hop I of course took it.
