BOO a Special Dog this Halloween

This #BOOItForward & #PawfectBOO shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias Inc. and its advertiser, Mars, Incorporated. All opinions are mine alone. I love surprises, but I love surprising others even more.  A super fun way to surprise friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, or even a stranger during October is to BOO them.  Now I don’t mean sneak up behind them, shout boo, and scare them silly!  When you BOO someone you deliver a fun bundle of Halloween treats to brighten their day and let them know how special they are to you.  BOOing is a wonderful way to pay it forward … …..

#HowWeFamily – It’s Not About Who You Love But How

I have received information from the makers of TYLENOL®. The opinions stated are my own. This is a sponsored post. One of the great things about the holidays is that it brings family together.  Many of my extended family members live over an hour or so away and I don’t get to see them on a regular basis through out the year.  It’s nice to get to spend time with them, eat yummy food, play board games, laugh together, and exchange a gift or two.  To celebrate all families and how they come together during the holidays TYLENOL® has created … …..

#SpreadCheer with Betty Crocker {Plus $20 PayPal Giveaway}

One of my favorite movies to watch during the holidays is definitely Elf.  I can’t help but smile every time Buddy says “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”  I’m definitely not a singer, but that isn’t stopping me from spreading Christmas cheer.  I found another way everyone can spread cheer during the holidays regardless if they can carry a tune or not.  Cookies!  Who doesn’t love cookies?!  And the best part is you don’t even have to be talented in the kitchen because Betty Crocker has you covered. Last week Willow and … …..

Hallmark itty bittys Make Perfect Stocking Stuffers

I don’t know about you, but I am super excited for Christmas this year.  I’m looking forward to continuing our family traditions while adding new ones too.  The day after Thanksgiving I will pack away all of the fall decorations so I can deck the halls with boughs of holly and my many many boxes of Christmas decor.  I firmly believe that one can never have too much Christmas decor and so I am always on the look out for new pieces for our home.  That’s what led me to swing by our local Hallmark Gold Crown store after picking … …..

You’re Invited to a Halloween Party at Portrait Innovations

This post is sponsored by Portrait Innovations.  My girls are getting so excited for Halloween!  They switched up their original costume plan when Willow declared that she wanted to be a dinosaur again this year.  But this time she wants to be a triceratops.  I thought it was super sweet that Alleigh and Kaelyn decided to wear dinosaur costumes as well.  All four of my girls are going to look adorable and I want to capture that cuteness forever which is why we will be attending a Halloween Party at Portrait Innovations!  And guess what – you are invited too! … …..

Invite The Sugar Goblin Into Your Home this October

This post is part of a sponsored campaign for The Sugar Goblin. I received compensation for my participation, but my review and opinions are my own. Halloween is on the way and with it comes an over abundance of candy.  With how the holiday falls this year Alleigh, Kaelyn, and Willow will be trick-or-treating twice which means double the candy.  Of course the girls are absolutely thrilled about this, but like many parents we choose to limit their candy intake.  In addition to limiting the amount of candy our girls eat we also do not allow them to eat anything … …..

Babies”R”Us is Baby’s First Halloween One Stop Shop

This #onestopshopforbaby shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. Halloween is a little over a month away and my girls are already talking about what they want their costumes to be this year.  The big girls have decided they want to be pirates and they want their baby sister to be a parrot.  Since I absolutely adore themes this makes me super excited too!  While the girls had me thinking about Halloween I figured it would be the perfect time to make “Baby’s First Halloween” purchases for my lil Lilah Rose when … …..

Wishing You a Happy HoneyBaked Holiday!

Thanks to HoneyBaked Ham for sponsoring todays post. Now I’m not meaning to put anyone into a panic… even though I am pretty much there myself… but Christmas is only 10 days away.  Thank goodness we already picked out our Christmas tree and decorated it as well as the rest of the house.  But I am no where near having my Christmas shopping complete and I didn’t even send out Christmas cards this year!  If you’re expecting one from us I am planning on sending out “Happy New Year” cards – I just simply can’t skip cards all together.  I … …..
