DIY Frozen Yogurt Pops [Summer Fun with Stonyfield]

Frozen Yogurt and Fruit Pops

This post was created in partnership with Stonyfield. All opinions are my own. Summer is in full swing - it's hot and the girls are loving that they can cool down with cold treats.  The only problem with that is - they ask for cold treats all.the.time.  So, after seeing my blogger friend Ruth's post about making her own Fruit Ice Pops, I was inspired to put a Stonyfield twist and make our own Frozen Yogurt Pops!  That way, the girls could enjoy as many frozen treats as they wanted because I would know exactly what was in them - and they're healthy and delicious! I decided to make these super simple, but there are so many variations you could choose.  A fellow Stonyfield Yo-Getter actually made Peanut Butter and Jelly Popsicles that I'm dying to try!  For our Frozen Yogurt Pops, I stuck with 2 different kinds of pureed fruit - … [Read more...]

Back to School: Shopping for School Supplies at Dollar General #DGB2S [$25 Dollar General GC - 5 Winners]

DG Giveaway

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I know, I know - it feels like Summer just started yesterday and now here we are, just 3 weeks away from school starting!  Although I'm excited for the new year school year to start for Sophia, it makes me just a bit sad too!  My baby is growing up! I'll tell you, though, there's no sort of sadness coming on her part.  She is so excited about moving up to "4 Year Old Preschool" and tells anybody that will listen.  She's already got her backpack, but we have quite the Pre-K School Supply List still to go and she's looking forward to that just as much as actually going to school! Luckily for me - and you - school supply shopping doesn't have to be hard or overwhelming.  Your local Dollar General makes it easy to find … [Read more...]

How to Throw a RAWRsome Dinosaur Birthday Party

RAWRsome Dinosaur Party

[tps_header] It's been about 2 months since Sophia turned 4 so it's about time I shared her fantastically RAWR-some Dinosaur Birthday Party with you, don't you think!? Sophia's been an independent thinker since she was 1.  No, really, she has.  As I was preparing for her 2nd Birthday Party, I decided on a Dora theme because she was completely in love with Dora at the time and in her little 1 year old voice she proclaimed she did not want a Dora Party, she wanted a Mickey Mouse Party.  Even at a ripe age of 24 months, I knew that if she walked into her Birthday Party and it wasn't Mickey, I would never hear the end of it.  So, Mickey Mouse she got. Then, last year she requested a Disney Princess theme so I took a fun, personalized spin and make it a Princess Tea Party. The week before her 3rd birthday she fell in love with … [Read more...]

Green Kid Crafts: Summer Edition

Green Kid Crafts Summer

Thanks to Green Kid Crafts for providing us with an eco friendly craft subscription box to facilitate this review.  All opinions are my own. Y'all know how I love Green Kid Crafts, right?!  Well, I'm excited to share with you some crafts that have been keeping my girls busy this Summer! The latest box from Green Kid Crafts that the girls have received is Interesting Insects - and it's been a BIG hit.  This box came with 3 pretty time consuming crafts, which are perfect for our family because it's so much better when a craft lasts longer than 5 minutes, right?! Within the box, the girls received a fun new chart to track their boxes from Green Kid Crafts - each box will now come with a sticker so they can see the crafts, at a glance, and remember what they've worked on.  Interesting Insects fit perfectly in our lives right now … [Read more...]

VTech Safe & Sound: Perfect Video Monitor for Toddlers

VTech Video Monitor Review

I received a VTech® Safe & Sound® Pan and Tilt Video Monitor to facilitate this review.  All opinions expressed, including the opinion that this it is the perfect video monitor for toddlers, are my own. Do you have a Video Monitor? I bet if you don't you think "I'd love to have one, but I really don't need one."  And I bet if you do have one, you think "There's no way I could live without our video monitor - it's a must-have for parents."  I have been on both sides of that question.  We didn't have one when Sophia was a newborn, I felt like audio was enough and I just couldn't justify one with our budget when I kept convincing myself that audio was enough. Then I got our first video monitor and I figured out why people love them so much, but it still had it's drawbacks.  It had to be plugged in at all times and the screen was … [Read more...]

Take a Stroll Through Murphy, NC with a Summer Infant Stroller #3DLiteStrollerTour

Stroller Giveaway

Thanks to Summer Infant for providing a Summer Infant Stroller for the Stroller Tour to facilitate this post and to Jamie from Momma Without a Clue for this review! There's nothing I like more than going for a walk at the end of the day with my family. It helps bring us closer together, winds the kids down so they're ready for the bedtime routine when we get back home, and is just a peaceful way to end our hectic days. Recently. we were sent a 3D lite Stroller from Summer Infant to review, and not a moment too soon I might add. While my baby girl is still little compared to other 15 month-olds, toting around 18 pounds on my hip gets heavy after a while. Of course, I could let her walk since she's perfected the toddle-toddle-wobble, but the goal of our evening walks is to relax. There's just something less-than-calm about having to … [Read more...]

Preventing Eczema Flare Ups with CLn Skin Care Products

CLn Bath Routine

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for CLn Skin Care. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. It's no secret that both of my girls have battled with eczema throughout their young lives because I've shared our struggles with you several times.  We've been able to figure out a few triggers, but still sometimes the girls will have a flare up and I simply just don't know why or how to really make it go away.  So, I have found that the best way to control their eczema flare ups is to avoid them altogether, makes sense, right!? Sadly, they're not alone - did you know that eczema is a disease that affects 30 million Americans and 20% of children?!  I'm completely intrigued on why the numbers of eczema are so high and … [Read more...]

Eco Friendly Toddler Tableware from Re-Play

Replay Snacks at Home

I was sent eco friendly toddler tableware products to facilitate this review.  All opinions are my own. If you bring your kiddo over for a play date at our house, you're bound to see our favorite eco friendly tableware.  I reviewed some of the products from Re-Play over two years ago!  Look at this vintage Sophia picture! And guess what?  We still use it daily.  No joke - these plates are used at least 2 times a day, but normally 3.  There's a few reasons why I was attracted to Re-Play in the first place and why I keep using it day after day now. The colors are amazing and they've just added in some great new shades of dark pink, purple, dark blue, and yellow.  The plates contain 3 deeply divided sections that are perfectly sized.  They're made out of recycled milk jugs.  They're durable, dishwasher and BPA Free!  The durability … [Read more...]

3 Layers of Protection with the Ultimate Swim Diaper from i Play

ultimate swim diaper review

This post is brought to you courtesy of iPlay Baby Wear, who provided one of their adorable swim diapers sets to Jamie of Momma Without a Clue for review. With the Memorial Day holiday coming up, so many of us are going to be spending time with our family at the pool, splashing and having a good time. i Play wants us to be aware, though, of the possibility of Recreational Water Illnesses and to have fun safely. Recreational water illnesses(RWIs) are caused by germs spread by ingesting contaminated water in swimming pools, hot tubs, water parks, water play areas, lakes, rivers, etc. Basically, anywhere that you might come in contact with water that someone else has been in, there's a chance of catching an RWI. These germs can cause a number of infections, including but not limited to gastrointestinal, skin, and respiratory … [Read more...]

Four Stages of Swaddling

Summer Infant Swaddles Giveaway

I received product in exchange for this post about the Four Stages of Swaddling.  All opinions expressed are my own. Is there anything lovelier than seeing a beautiful, new baby swaddled up so comfy?  Perhaps it's because my mind goes back to how much better my girls rested as newborns when they were swaddled or perhaps it's because it seems like it's been so long since my girls were ever that little! It seems that swaddling babies is pretty common knowledge to parents these days.  The nurses at the hospital taught us how to swaddle both of the girls and I know for a fact it helped them sleep so much better, especially in those first few weeks of life.  For that reason alone, I'm a huge promoter of swaddling which means if I get invited to a Baby Shower - you can about bet my gift will be some type of Swaddle Blankets! Summer … [Read more...]
