Berry Good Fruit Juice Smoothie

Berry-Good-Smoothie

One of the things that I've been trying to get the girls to eat more of is vegetables [ok yes, so have probably every other Mom and Dad in the world].  It's working, but only when I sneak them in, which was rather easy when I used a package of organic fruits from Schwan's!  And talk about EASY this Berry Good Fruit Juice Smoothie is definitely easy and delicious! A cup full of organic fruit [featuring Organic sun-ripened golden pineapple and mangos with blueberries], 3/4 cup of orange juice, and a scoop of BlendFresh Red and I had a delicious frozen drink that they couldn't resist! 5.0 from 1 reviews Berry Good Fruit Juice Smoothie   Print Prep time 5 mins Total time 5 mins   This frozen smoothie will have your kids begging for more!

DIY Colored Pasta for Learning Activities and Kids Crafts

Get-Crafty-DIY-Colored-Pasta

It's cold outside so play is limited to inside during these first few months of the year.  Sickness is also spreading like wildfire, so doing indoor activities away from home aren't quite possible either, which is why we've been doing lots of arts and crafts here at home!  There are so many simple crafts that you can do at home using colored pasta. It's a relatively cheap product, with a ton of different shapes, that can keep children from toddler age and beyond occupied.  But what fun is that ugly cream/yellow plain, boring pasta color?  None! So today I'm showing you just how easy it is to create your own DIY Colored Pasta! You'll only need a few ingredients and a few minutes... or a bit more time if you'd like deep, rich colored pasta! The steps are super simple and you can get your children involved for most of them... … [Read more...]

We’ve Been Blessed to Pay it Forward this Holiday Season with Step2

Paying It Forward Step2

I am a Step2 Ambassador and am partnering with Step2 for the following review. I received a product in exchange for my review and honest opinion. Throughout this year, I've shared with you numerous times about Step2.  It's been a wonderful year for myself, my girls, and my blog to be a Step2 Ambassador and I literally couldn't say thank you enough for the opportunities this partnership has given us.  But I'm even more excited about this post than I've been about any other from the past year.  That's because I get to share with you just how wonderful this company really is - and how they're helping my family Pay It Forward this Holiday Season. I really got to see the heart of Step2 when I visited the Headquarters in August and honestly wasn't surprised at a all when I got an email in November laying out our December opportunity for the … [Read more...]

Play With Your Food: Yogurt Christmas Tree Pancakes

Yogurt Christmas Tree Pancakes

This post was created in partnership with Stonyfield. All opinions are my own. #StonyfieldBlogger Preschool is out on Christmas Break which means we don't have to be in such a hurry for breakfast time in the mornings.  It also means that we're getting closer to Christmas and the girls' anticipation for the big Holiday gets more each and every day! If there's a few things my girls love it's... pancakes, Stonyfield Yogurt Pouches, and playing with their food, so the creative Mama in me thought up a fabulous idea to combine all 3!  Ok, ok - I admit that the idea behind this breakfast/craft play with your food activity came from the fact that Moreaya always wants to squirt out her pouches now.  Remember this gem? Apparently Moreaya thought that we would finger paint with @stonyfield yogurt pouches this morning rather than eat … [Read more...]

Learning to Read with Rosetta Stone Kids

Rosetta Stone Kids

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Rosetta Stone. I received a product and a promotional item to thank me for participating. It's hard to believe that it's already time for Sophia to start learning how to read.  I turned to Rob the other day and said "You realize we don't have babies anymore."  I've always considered myself a "New Mom", but now that I'm getting ready to be a Mom to a 3 and 4.5 year old... well, I guess that description doesn't get applied to me anymore! When Sophia comes home from Preschool every day, I ask her what she did that day and listen to her stories about everything that happened that morning.  I always ask her what center she played in and her answer is always the Art Center.  My girl loves Arts and Crafts, that's for sure!  I inquire about the other centers and … [Read more...]

Bummis Cover

Hi, I'm Tasha!

Cruising on 6 Wheels: Step2 Spin & Go Xtreme Cruiser

Xtreme Cruiser Step2

I am a Step2 Ambassador and am partnering with Step2 for the following review. I received a product in exchange for my review and honest opinion.  I am so so excited about today's post.  You may remember that I traveled to Ohio this Summer to visit the Step2 Headquarters.  I blogged about my experience getting to see the company from the inside out and what it meant to me to be a Step2 Ambassador.  Of course, it wasn't all work while we were there or let me say, the work that we did while we were there was loads of fun for this Mom. During one of our meetings we had the chance to check out a totally new, fresh concept of a motorized ride-on toy.  Every single one of us had to pick our jaw up when we saw the toy in real life.  It was tough, it was rugged, it was just so different from anything else on the market and I couldn't wait … [Read more...]

DIY Parrot Costume for Baby [with Free Templates]

DIY-Parrot-Costume

My oldest son is pirate crazy. This kid gets up every morning and immediately asks for his "Yo ho" boots (pirate rain boots). He carries around his pirate sword more often than not, and every paper towel roll from the last 3 months is now in his possession as a "spyglass." With that in mind, it wasn't very difficult to decide on his Halloween costume this year. I just so happen to be one of those dorky, I mean, creative moms who likes to dress in family theme. Check out our Halloween costumes/gender reveal from last year! This is my first year as a SAHM, so I needed to do Halloween on a budget. I didn't like how dark and gloomy most of the pirate costumes available were. The only solution was to make my own. I also didn't like the idea of my 6 month old being a pirate, so I decided he needed to be a parrot! What's a pirate without a … [Read more...]
