Surviving the Yuckies When Sick Gets Real™ {Plus Giveaway}


School is quickly coming to a close for our boys, and we are all so excited for the arrival of warmer weather.  This year, we even have a new baby joining us, and we’re ready for a summer packed full of fun and learning!  But unfortunately, along with all of the outdoor activities and beautiful weather, a nasty cold bug or two seems to catch on in the transition.  Even though we try our best to keep those germs away, sick still seems to get very real in our house.  Plus,when you have a home full of boys like we … …..

Organize Your Digital Media in One Safe Secure Space with MiMedia


This post was sponsored by The Motherhood and MiMedia.  All opinions are my own. I have crazy amounts of digital media stored all over the place.  External hard drives.  Camera SD cards.  Smart phones.  Tablets.  Discs.  Jump Drives.  Laptops.  Everywhere.  And so when I am looking for a specific photo it can take me hours to track it down.  Not only that, but more times than I care to admit I have completely lost precious memories.  For example a smart phone will not survive a swim in the porcelain throne.  Or when my laptop flashed the screen of death and … …..

Win Free Polar Pop For a Year!


To say things have been crazy around here would be a bit of an understatement.  Tomorrow my two oldest daughter’s will celebrate their 8th and 6th birthdays.  All these years later and it still blows my mind that they were born on the same day exactly two years apart.  Yesterday I baked eight dozen cupcakes for them to take to school today to celebrate with their teachers and friends.  Tomorrow morning we have soccer team pictures and then games all morning.  And after that we will be heading up to Maumee Bay State Park to simultaneously celebrate the lodges 25th … …..

This post is sponsored by Disney-Hyperion.

Reclaim Bedtime with The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep {Giveaway}


All samples and prizing are provided by Random House Kids, and all thoughts and opinions are my own. As I sit here writing this, I can clearly hear three little boys “sleeping”.  And by sleeping, I mean playing, scheming plans for tomorrow, and doing everything but lying still and going to sleep!  Bedtime always has been a battle for us to get all three of our boys quiet, still, and asleep at the same time.  We’ve tried just about every method out there, and while some help, the struggle. is. real.  Do you guys struggle like we do?  My guess … …..

Warm Up this Fall with iCoffee {giveaway}


I received a product sample free of charge to facilitate my review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own. I’ll be the first to admit that I am most definitely not a morning person.  I mean, I work midnights for a reason!  So getting up at 6:30 am every morning to take Aiden to school is a huge shock to my system (especially when all 3 of my kids have an awesome track record of sleeping past 9 am if they are left alone!).  In true midnight shift form, I have come to completely rely on my morning coffee to … …..

Safety and Security While On-the-Job with Master Lock {Giveaway}


I was provided a product sample in exchange for my honest review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own. More than 122 million people in the US and Canada are full-time employees, and spend an average of 47 hours a week or more at their workplace.  I know in our home, my husband works full time and I work part time, so work is an essential part of our daily life.  And since we spend so much time there, safety while at work, traveling, and at home while we are gone is really important to us.  We know many of … …..

Super Genius Makes Summer Learning Fun {Giveaway}


After home schooling Reese for preschool last year, I can honestly say I’m just as tired of school work as Reese is.  However, I really wanted a way to keep the boys thinking, writing, and reading throughout the summer without doing the same thing we have been doing.  The summer reading program at our library has really helped with vocabulary and exposure to different books (hello, prize incentives!), but I needed something different to keep them thinking… something easy, portable, and fun for the boys to do.  Of course they love games, so something that mixed learning and playing would … …..
