Help Prevent Summer Learning Loss #sponsored

"I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carson-Dellosa. I reviewed the free content on their website  to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation."

With summertime here I worry a lot about how much learned education my boys are losing/forgetting throughout the summer. My boys are very active and love to be outside playing and when they can't get outside they want to play video games. I am very strict on the amount of time they are allowed for video games because I do not find them educational. However I do not mind the boys getting online and going to Carson-Dellosa Summer Learning Activities website and playing educational games.

Newly Renovated Hotel Breakers {Sandusky, Ohio}

Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a fan of living in Ohio, but there are some perks to living here. One being that we are close to Cedar Point, The Roller Coaster Capital of the World! My husband and oldest son absolutely love roller coasters and are always trying to get me on them. They were thrilled when they found out about Rougarou, a new floorless roller coaster. 

Bouncin' High Toward the Sky

Growing up I loved jumping on my cousins trampoline and some of my best memories with them is being silly on the trampoline. My children have shown the same the love for the trampoline as I had. They were always disappearing to the neighbors house so they could jump on the trampoline. Now thanks to my partnership with Skywalker Trampolines my children get to enjoy their own trampoline.

One thing that my family loves is having pizza night. The kids look forward to our weekly pizza nights. They love helping make the pizzas and picking the toppings. Rustic Crust helps my family pull off quick and easy pizza nights with their delicious crusts and sauces. We can have delicious pizza made quicker at home then ordering from a pizza chain.

Tangles no more with Cantu

If anyone knows me then they know how much I dislike my curly hair. I have always disliked the fact that it tangles so easy and doesn't like to stay in nice ringlets. So I am sure you can tell how excited I was when Sweet Pea got the curly hair as well. Excited not really. I hate that it is a fight to get her to let me do anything with her hair because it tangles so easily. She use to yell so loud that I was afraid the neighbors would call the police on me thinking I was hurting her when all I was doing was brushing her hair.

Earth Easy: Worm Factory 360 Composter

My family does a lot of recycling and is always looking for a way to help reduce our prints on the earth. We love growing a garden every summer and I am always keeping up with the flowerbeds. I have been interested in the perks of composting for awhile and was very excited when EarthEasy agreed to team up with me on the Springing Ahead Event.

Gorton's NEW Smart & Crunchy Fish

When my family thinks of frozen seafood we all think of Gorton's Seafood and their famous jingle "Trust the Gorton's fishermen..." I have been feeding my family Gorton's seafood for quite awhile now. My children will tell you that they do not like fish but I have found that they do love Gorton's fish sticks. When I tell them they are eating fish they will say "well we don't like fish but we do like fish in stick form..." I am so thankful that Gorton's makes delicious fish sticks so I can get my children to eat fish without a fight.

Women's Health...A Healthier You

To inspire women to lead a healthier lifestyle, Colgate recommends women follow these small steps provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health:

  1. Visit a doctor or nurse to receive regular checkups and preventive screenings. Schedule your annual well-woman visit National Women's Checkup Day, Monday May 11. Use this time to discuss your health goals, concerns or questions.
  2. Get active. Try to incorporate more physical activity into your daily routine. Walk or bike to work or park your car further away from your destination.
  3. Eat healthy. Making healthier food choices can be as simple as using a smaller plate at meals to help control portions or choosing water instead of soda and other sugary drinks. 
  4. Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress. Try and set aside at least 15 minutes each day in your busy schedule to do something for yourself.
  5. Avoid unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, texting while driving, and not wearing a seatbelt or bicycle helmet.

Bubula Diaper Pail

           Bubula Diaper Pail

     So tell me how many times you have taken out the trash, put a new bag in the can and then, all of a sudden, your little one has a super stinky diaper. So you change the little one and throw it away only to smell it for the next week. The Bubula Diaper Pail can solve that problem for you. It's made of steel and aluminum so it doesn't absorb the stink, unlike the plastic pails that you can never get the smell out of.

Sponsor Spotlight: Exergen

I don't know about you but with having four children I use thermometers a lot! As the kids get older it seems to gets harder to get an accurate temp on the kids. They do not like to sit still or do not understand to keep the thermometer probe under their tongues. But now thanks to the Exergen Thermometer, Temporal Scanner  I can get a quick and accurate reading.

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 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 Ocean Breeze.

Sponsor Spotlight: Nickerbacher Book

Do your kids love to read? I know that my children all enjoy books and either being read to or reading them themselves. I am always looking for new and interesting books to add to their book collection. The kids and I have enjoyed reading Nickerbacher, The Funniest Dragon our newest book. 

Sponsor Spotlight: Aden & Anais

With Angel cutting teeth everything is currently going into her mouth if she thinks it will work for chewing. Though she is my fourth child I still worry about what she is sticking in her mouth to chew on. I worry about some teething toys because there is no real good way to clean them and then you have to worry about germs and bacteria growing. (YUCK) I love toys and teething toys that I can easily and safely clean for my children. That is why I am in love with Angels' new teething toy from Aden & Anais
