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!

Graco Modes Click Connect Travel System

Graco Modes Click Connect Travel System

I was provided a Graco Modes Click Connect Travel System to gift to a family in need in exchange for this post.  All opinions are my own. I shared just before Christmas how I was able to pay it forward before the Holidays by blessing a family with a totally fun toy.  I admit that I sometimes get so caught up with my girls, my work, and life that I forget to step back and think about how I can be a blessing to others - by giving of my time and donations.  But that post reminded me that I need to take that time and use it as a wonderful teaching opportunity for my girls - so they learn the importance of giving too! So in a time when it's quite popular to be sharing New Year's Resolutions, I'm sharing mine with you... "To give more in 2015".  I want to be more generous - with my time and wonderful opportunities that come about from … [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...]

5 Tips on Dealing with After Holidays Clutter

After Holidays Clutter

This conversation about Dealing with After Holidays Clutter was inspired by a collaboration with Savers.  All opinions expressed are my own. The end of the year is a super busy time for most of us—between Thanksgiving and the Winter Holidays there’s so much to do and consider—not to mention all of the clutter that builds up.  Today I'm going to share 5 tips that will help you deal with the After Holidays Clutter that seems to plague my house at the end of December. With all of the excitement of the upcoming Holidays, one thing that often gets overlooked is that overstuffed closet or the box of donations waiting in your garage.  The best time to deal with it is NOW. Deal with the Clutter BEFORE the Holidays. That's right - if you deal with a large portion of the clutter that you have around your house now, after the holidays … [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...]

Lunching Awesome with Applegate HALF TIME Lunch Kits

Lunching Awesme Collage

This post was created in partnership with Stonyfield. All opinions are my own. Let me just tell you, these girls have been lunching awesome for a few weeks now.  I am so glad that we discovered the new HALF TIME™ Lunch Kits from Applegate because they're convenient, delicious [so the girls rave], and organic. No GMO ingredients No fillers No artificial ingredients No chemical nitrates or nitrates added When we're grocery shopping there's always a "Hey, Mom - can we get one of those" when we go by the yellow boxed lunch section.  I take a tiny bit offense to say that plainly stacked crackers a teensy tiny candy bar would look more appetizing than some of the bento lunches I make for them, but I have to remember - it's marketing and my little gals are falling right into it. So when Applegate launched the … [Read more...]

Our Weekend with Julius Jr. at Nick Hotel’s Preschool Celebration

Julius-Jr-Time-Collage

This time just last week my little family of 4 was on an airplane just getting ready to arrive in Orlando, Florida.  I shared a few days before we left the exciting news that we were invited to the Nick Hotel to participate in the Julius Jr weekend - a part of Nickelodeon Suites Resort Preschool Celebration. It was truly a once in a lifetime type experience for our family - the girls first ride on an airplane... And a true weekend away from regular day to day life.  A weekend that was all about the girls from the moment we stepped foot onto the Nickelodeon Hotel property.  They were immediately immersed into scenes of some of their favorite Nick Jr shows and were anxiously awaiting the Julius Jr. weekend! I shared quite a bit of our weekend on Facebook, Twitter, and my instagram - including what the girls were greeted with as … [Read more...]
