Tips For Moving With Kids

What to consider when moving with children
At the best of times moving house, either to another part of the State or to another town in the US can prove difficult enough for the grown-ups.  Add the kids to the mix and most parents start to dread the event.

Oasap Dress Giveaway



I am giving away a dress like the one I recently reviewed for Oasap. This dress is a One Size but it seems to run a little on the smaller side. I am putting the sizing chart for the dress below. This is a new dress still in the packaging NOT the one I reviewed. I love mine and wouldn't part with it!!

Oasap Dress Review


I was recently given the opportunity to become one of Oasap's bloggers. I am one who loves clothing so this opportunity was perfect for me! I was recently sent a beautiful Pearl Embellished Strapless Dress to review. I have a friend getting married this weekend and I am super excited to wear this dress to the wedding!

Holiday Layaway...

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kmart. All opinions are 100% mine.
Kmart_Logo_B&W.jpg (3 documents, 3 total pages)

With the Holidays right around the corner and the kids starting to make their wishlists it's time to start thinking of your options on getting all those holiday gifts. I know that I have already seen some items at Kmart that I plan on putting in layaway for the boys and Sweet Pea. I like that Kmart offers free layaway to its customers instead of charging them a fee to hold the items for them.


I would love to be able to just go and buy everything for my children all at once but it's just not possible and then I would have to find somewhere to keep it that they wouldn't find them. That is just another perk to Kmart's Layaway I can make payments on the stuff and not have to worry about hiding it as well.

Kmart is now offering Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway from 9/9/12 through 11/17/12 where when you place items in a layaway you are entered in for a chance at your remaining balance being paid off. I know that I am super excited about the giveaway and hoping that I win since they are picking a winner a day at each store your chances of winning are actually pretty good!!!

Another nice thing about Kmart's layaway program is that it's available all year long not just at the Holiday's like so many other retailers. So you are able to also use this great tool throughout the year for birthdays, school shopping and so much more!!

Adding Fall Color to Your Flowerbeds

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.
MiracleGro Logo(1).jpg
I love the fall and all the bright colors, but one thing my flowerbeds lack is pretty fall flowers. But what options do you have to Find beauty in the Fall in your region? Since I currently live in the Northeast some options I have for Fall gardening are Mums, Pansies, and New England aster or boltonia.
But once you have your flowerbeds all spruced up for the fall what else can you do with the flowers you planted? One really neat decorating idea is making "Gorgeous Gourds and Pumpkins".
Pinned Image
To create these beautiful Gourds and Pumpkins you will need:
Gourds and Pumpkins
Yellow and Orange Mums heads cut from the plant
Hot Glue and Glue Gun
What you will do is glue the flowers onto the Gourds and Pumpkins starting at the bottom and working your way up the Gourd or Pumpkin. I would personally go in a circular position around the Gourd or Pumpkin. These would make for a beautiful table center piece or could be placed in small footed urns. I am looking forward to making these and placing them in the archways of my front porch to add some beautiful color to my porch.
But how do you get your flowers to grow big and beautiful so you can use them in projects like the one mentioned above? You could always start by using Micracle-Gro soil for plants and vegetables. It is specially formulated to help the plants roots grow strong and it also has a special continuous release plant food to help feed the plants for up to 3 months. You can visit Miracle-Gro Facebook page to get lots of great resources on your gardening needs.

Coupons By Answers.com

 
Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE to shop as does any women! I am the type of person who just needs to go shopping sometimes. I don’t typically buy stuff but I just need to get out and do some shop-therapy. It just a way for me to unwind and relax.

Going Back To School


Are you or someone you know headed back to college? With the high cost of gas prices for commuter students one thing I am sure they would love to do is save some money. I know when I attended college and was studying Early Childhood Education it seemed like buying my books was going to break the bank and I typically bought used books when I could and you never get the money out of them that you pay for them. But there is help out there with buying books and saving money...

OFF! Clip-On Review


One place I love to be is outside, but as soon as evening starts to set in I head indoors because mosquito's love me... I can be outside with Jake right beside and I will get bit up really badly and he may get just one bite. So needless to say I was super excited when I got the chance to review the OFF! Clip-On. I had seen it stores but was skeptical of how well it would work on me and the kids.
