lil Bums Giveaway

We were provided cloth diapers for review purposes.  All opinions are our own.

Meet Roxy – Our Family’s MVP [AND Win 1 of 5 $50 Walmart Gift Cards!]

PRNA_Bog_Game_Gleam_540X487

This post has been sponsored by Lunchbox.  All opinions are my own. March Madness is coming up and it's important that we all know who the real MVP is in our family, right?!  Some would call basking in the sunshine through a window and sleeping for more than half the day an easy job, but in my eyes, it describes the true MVP of our family. Roxy is our tuxedo cat.  She was a stray that I brought in just about 13 years ago.  She was a kitten that showed up at a friend's house and my family brought her in.  She's been a truly loyal cat - moving out of town with me for college, accepting Rob as a new parent over 6 years ago, and graciously helping me welcome my 2 girls into the world.  She's never once complained about becoming the 3rd child and has loved her sisters more than I could have ever hoped. Even when that meant a … [Read more...]

Medi-Pals Favorite Amazon Finds for Kids – HUGE #Giveaway

Medi-Pals-Amazon-Giveaway

Welcome to the Favorite Amazon Finds for Kids Giveaway, generously sponsored by Medi-Pals! Last month, Thrifty Nifty Mommy introduced us to a fantastic kid-friendly medication dispenser called Medi-Pals. Available in 3 fun characters, Medi-Pals dispensers are familiar and fun for the infant, easy for the caregiver to use, and they always ensure that the child is getting the accurate dosage of medicine. Key benefits of Medi-Pals pacifier medicine dispensers: They're softer than a straight syringe, and the syringe sits snugly in the nipple, so no medicine gets lost or stuck to the sides. They're accurate - the caregiver is in complete control of dosage. The diverter on the pacifier nipple fans the medicine to the sides, not straight to the back of the child's throat, so that the child won't gag and spit the medicine … [Read more...]

DIY Moon Dough [and a Review of the Step2 Cascading Cove Sand & Water Table] + GIVEAWAY!

Water Table Giveaway

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 have 2 super crafty girls.  Sophia always wants to do a craft and asks just about every single day for us to come up with a new activity.  So when our Step2 Cascading Cove Sand & Water Table arrived, I knew it was the perfect excuse for a new craft and what we had to make... sand!  Well, not exactly sand, but DIY Moon Dough! Last year at Sophia's Dinosaur Birthday Party we turned our previous water table into a Dino Dig - any Junior Paleontologists' dream toy.  Since we were sitting at home with no play sand to sift through to look for fossils, I decided to DIY moon dough - a project I've had pinned and wanted to try for awhile now!  It turns out making moon dough is a super simple … [Read more...]

Spaghetti Soup with Mini Meatballs

Spaghetti Soup with Title

This recipe for Spaghetti Soup with Mini Meatballs was created by me during a collaboration with Viva Italia Days at Publix: Hunts Tomatoes, Progresso™ Brand Products, Kraft Parmesan Cheese, Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Breads, Betty Crocker™ Cookies.  The information, products and Publix gift cards were provided by General Mills through Linqia. One of my family's go-to meals is Spaghetti.  I'd venture a guess that we're not the only family that has that default meal always ready in the cupboard.  It's an easy one pot meal and is pretty much a dinner that everyone loves.  But sometimes the family needs a little bit of variety, which is why I created this fun spin on the Italian favorite... Spaghetti Soup with Mini Meatballs! This dish tastes and looks like it takes hours to create, which is great when you're trying to impress your husband … [Read more...]
