While on vacation at Virginia Beach we decided to take advantage of our Akron Zoo Pass member benefits by visiting the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk. The girls loved exploring a new zoo and really liked the giraffes and elephants. It was a hot and sweaty day but we all had a ton of fun. Now to figure out what zoo we should visit next with our zoo pass!
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Air Wick. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. With a 10 month old and a three year old who has no interest in using the potty my nose catches whiffs of nastiness pretty often. Add that to other things that stink like garbage and burnt food (not that I ever do that, hehe) and it is absolutely necessary to have something with a pleasant smell. Heck, even if your house doesn’t have one nasty smell adding … …..
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. Some things in life can only be described as a never ending cycle. One that comes to mind is doing the dishes. No matter what it will never end. Never. Thank goodness I have a dishwasher. That handy dandy appliance gets run every single day at least once in our household. But even with the dishwasher I just felt like I was wasting so much time with things … …..
It’s Saturday which means it’s time for the weekly Willow update! I enjoyed writing my pregnancy journal and sharing my journey with everyone so much that I have decided to continue by writing about Willow’s first year. And so each week I will be sharing how my baby girl is growing and changing plus lots of pictures! PICTURES FROM WILLOW’S 43rd WEEK WHAT WILLOW’S DAYS & NIGHTS ARE LIKE… Sleeping: This week I started putting Willow’s aden+anais sleeping bags on her while sleeping and she seems to be sleeping longer – perhaps more comfy with a blanket safely on her. … …..
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received collateral to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. It’s summer time and that means it’s time to get outside. Time to turn off the television. Power down the computer. Silence the smart phone. Get up off the couch and enjoy the great outdoors. I love spending time outside, especially on or near the water and that’s why I am excited to announce that I am an ambassador for Discover Boating. Last summer our family went on a … …..
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rite Aid Tugaboos diapers. I really don’t like spending money on things that just end up in the trash like disposable diapers. That’s the whole reason I started cloth diapering with Kaelyn. When Willow arrived I wanted to cloth diaper full time again, but life with three kids is rather chaotic and the laundry mountain is rather high. Those reasons and a few others led to my decision that cloth diapering at home during the day would be my limit. This means night time and when we are out … …..
I am proud to be called momma by the three cutest kids in the entire world. Of course I might be a little biased, hehe. Do you think your kiddo is the cutest ever too? I bet ya do. And if I’m right then you are going to want to enter Kmart’s March of Dimes IMBORNTO Contest to give your child the chance to be featured in a Kmart circular ad. Kmart March of Dimes IMBORNTO Contest To enter, submit a recent photo of your child on Kmart’s Shop Your Way social shopping site. Shop Your Way is a free, … …..
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Unilever. It seems like forever since our family vacation to the beach even though it was only a little less than two weeks ago. Do you remember my post sharing my shopping experience at Walmart to stock up our fridge at the hotel for the week? We had purchased a tub of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! to use in place of butter during our stay. It sure did get a lot of use, but unfortunately I had to leave it behind when we left since it must … …..
On the way home from our vacation at Virginia Beach we decided to break up the long drive home with a little sight seeing. We stopped at the Lost World Caverns in Lewisburg, West Virginia since it was pretty much half way between the beach and home. A few hours before we arrived at the caverns I told Alleigh and Kaelyn what we would be doing and they responded with a “Nooooo we don’t want to go in a cave!!!” and so I *may* have said something along the lines of “ok we won’t do that then.” But then we … …..
Amazing. Yup, that pretty much sums up my experience at The Package Tour at Quicken Loans Arena yesterday evening. But that wouldn’t make for a very interesting blog post now would it? Hehe. And so let me tell you just what made it so amazing and why I still have “Step by step ooh baby / Gonna get to you girl” and “Let’s don’t wait till the water runs dry / We’ll make the biggest mistake of our lives / Don’t do it baby” and so many more lyrics still running through my head over twenty-four hours later. I was … …..
