Sponsor Spotlight: Marie's Original

When I signed up for the Made In America Blog Hop I was unsure of what kind of theme I would come up with. Well I never really did come up with a theme but I did however find some really great American Made Companies to work with. One of those great companies that I found is Marie's Original Poision Ivy/Oak Soap.

Danze Faucet Review & Showerhead Giveaway

I was recently given the awesome opportunity to review a new bathroom faucet by Danze. I must say that I was tickled pink because our house is in need of major home improvements. We recently put new flooring down in the living room and hallway. We are trying to slowly work on getting one room redone at a time, but it is hard to do on only one budget. Both our bathroom are in need of dyer help in so many different aspects. I decided to put the new faucet in our main bathroom since it is the one that gets used the most. I was so excited to get the new faucet on and the old one gone that I forgot to get a before picture of it. But both of our bathroom faucets looked the same so I grabbed you a photo of the one in our other bathroom. It will give you an idea of what sink looked like before.

Nature's Sleep Slippers Review & Giveaway

I was excited when I found out that I would be reviewing a pair of  Nature’s Sleep Closed Toe Terry Slippers w/Memory Foam! I got my slippers in a size Large because I wear a size 9 shoe. These slippers fit my feet perfectly and are very comfortable! I hate after you buy a new pair of slippers and they fall off easily while you are walking. These slippers slip on and off very easy, but stay on great while your walking. I am very pleased with the sizing of these slippers as well. These slippers are available in the sizes of small, medium, large, and x-large and come in a variety of colors as well.

Back To School Shopping

With back to school slowly approaching I have been thinking about what all the boys will be in need of. I know school supplies, clothes, backpacks, and shoes. But one thing I don't have is a lot of extra cash to spend on all these items. I am so thankful when I come across things like Gap 2012 coupons to help me save some money! I never realized how expensive school was until my own children started attending and I swear the lists they bring home now have so much more on them then we ever needed growing up. I know Bubba's supplies are crazy it seems like we are supplying some of the teachers supplies for them as well.

Sponsor Spotlight: Sweet Cheeks

During The Fluffy Bottom Giveaway I had the great opportunity to work with Sweet Cheeks Laundry. I was given the chance to try out their Pail Powder. What is pail powder you ask? Well it is this awesome powder that you sprinkle in your diaper pail or wet bag. It helps to freshen up and deodorize your pail or wet bag and I don't know about yours but mine could typically use some freshening up.

Since I started cloth diapering and trying to go greener with my family I have wanted to try soap nuts. I wanted to see if they would clean our clothes as well as soap.

Vacation Time

We just had our family vacation to Myrle Beach last week. We went down with my in-laws and brother in law and camped in a pop-up for a week. What a trip it was it decided to rain a lot while we were there so we got stuck in the camper a few days. Let's just say 8 people in a pop-up gets to be too much when there's nothing to do. But overall we had a blast! We took the kids to Ripley's Aquarium one day and got to see the Mermaid show while we were there.

Pirate Costume Review & Giveaway

I am not one who typically dresses up for Halloween or goes to Halloween parties. I do however love to spend time with my kids and be silly sometimes. Like one year my hubby and I dressed up like Snow White and Prince Charming and took the kids to Boo at the Zoo. It was so funny to hear so many little girls say to there mom "look it's the real snow white". That was the last time I think I dressed up for Halloween.

PottyCover Review & Giveaway

When you are out in public do you dread hearing your kids say they need to go potty?? I know I do and so does Jake. Public restrooms seem to be a breeding ground for germs and unwanted stuff. While traveling on our way to Myrtle Beach with the family we knew public restrooms use was in our future. I was super excited when I got the opportunity to review the PottyCover.

SodaStream Jet Review

I have seen several reviews on Sodastream in the past, but was a bit skeptical of it. So I was super excited when they agreed to send me the Jet model for a review. My kit included: Jet model Sodastream, 2 x 1 L bottles, 1 carbonate bottle, a box of 12 different soda mixes, 9 full size soda mixes, 1 Sodamix Taste Sampler & a trial 3-pack of MyWater flavor bottles. So needless to say it has taken us awhile to get through all of the flavors that they sent me.

Sponsor Spotlight: Rockin Green

Since I started cloth diapering I have only ever used 1 other soap other then Rockin Green on my diapers. As most of you know I  have been trying to find ways to make my families lifestyle greener in hopes to help the environment and save a little in the process. I have to say that I love all the different scents that I have tried and I love how well it works on getting my diapers nice and clean. I use the Rockin Green to wash up all my families clothes not just my diapers. Everything comes out of the washer smelling and looking clean as well and  I love how if I don't have my ecosheets in the dryer my stuff still comes out nice and not full of static.
