MommyCon is Coming to Chicago February 21st 2015

TheBabyBuy_thumb.jpg

In less than a month Lilah and I will be jumping in the car and on our way to Indiana where we will meet up with my awesome blog contributor, Sunny.  We’ll then continue to Chicago to spend an amazing weekend together at MommyCon!  To say I’m excited would be putting it lightly.  I am so stoked to hang out with Sunny and be completely immersed in so many things I love and surrounded by so many like minded moms (and dads too).  It’s such an awesome feeling to walk around and see so many babies and toddlers strapped to … …..

Pillow Fort Building Fun with Pop Secret {$1 OFF COUPON}

PopSecret.jpg

Today’s post is sponsored by Pop Secret, but my love for their popcorn is all my own! My sister and I have always been very close.  Growing up we loved spending time together making videos, riding our wagon down the hill in the front yard, building forts, and lots more.  Oh and those forts – they were pretty epic.  We would use every flat and fitted sheet we could find to make the biggest fort possible.  The other day while browsing around on Facebook the Pop Secret page reminded me of how much fun I used to have building those … …..

SoftJox Plush Sports Characters- Just in time for Superbowl Sunday!

FrontBack.jpg

Even when it was just my husband and I, our house breathed sports on a daily basis. In fact, date nights were often planned around who was playing what sport at what time. As the years have gone by and children have been added, NOT A SINGLE THING HAS CHANGED. Everything still revolves around sports, but now I also have 3 crazy little boys starting to love it just as much as their daddy! Over the last year we’ve let the boys dabble in sports a bit through our local YMCA, and have tried out t-ball, soccer, and basketball. But … …..

Little Blueberries Can Make a Big Impact on your Health

Blueberries.jpg

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council. I received a stipend to facilitate my purchase for my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. So many times people set unreasonably lofty resolutions or goals for the new year.  Perhaps to go to the gym every single day or lose fifty pounds.  Instead I wanted to give myself and our family as a whole a more attainable goal.  To simply live a healthier lifestyle by making small changes like drinking more water, taking the stairs … …..

Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Battle for the Book

SnowMovieCover.jpg

We’ve had some pretty crazy weather over the last few weeks, and my boys are definitely getting stir crazy. There seems to only be so many coloring pages, puzzles, and preschool games that can fill the time. Luckily, one of my boys’ favorite shows, Jake and the Never Land Pirates, has a brand new Disney DVD out- Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Battle for the Book. I knew this would be the perfect relief for never ending snow days, so we had a fun Pirate Movie Night, complete with swords, pirate hooks, and popcorn! Yo-ho mateys away!! The Battle … …..

Healthy Snacking with Yoplait Greek 100

yoplait3.jpg

Thank you to Yoplait for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to try Yoplait Greek 100! Happy New Year!  Ok, I might be a few weeks late but taking a little break from the blog to spend the holidays with my family was just what this mama needed.  Now I’m ready to dive back in head first and the first topic of discussion is resolutions.  Each year approximately 45% of Americans make a resolution with the majority of resolutions being focused on self improvement or weight loss.  But of those 45% only 8% are actually successful in achieving their resolution.  … …..

When Breastfeeding Becomes Pumping… #GrowLilahGrow

23.jpg

If we just take the time to watch and listen closely it’s truly amazing the life lessons our children can teach us.  Even though Lilah is only two months old she has taught me one very valuable lesson. That I am not and can not always be in control of every situation.  After having three children that breastfed with ease from birth there wasn’t a single doubt in my mind that Lilah would be any different.  After all when she was born weighing 6 pounds 5 ounces there didn’t seem to be any visible signs that we would have a … …..

Replace Your Wallet with the Free Softcard App

tappy-wave

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Softcard. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. If your wallet looks anything like mine it’s utter chaos.  The vast majority of that chaos consists of cards – credit, debit, loyalty, and more.  Every time I’m trying to complete a purchase I find myself fumbling through my wallet trying to locate my form of payment, loyalty card, and coupons.  After all I want to save as much money as possible while getting rewarded for shopping too.  But more often than not I get frustrated … …..
