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...]

The Only Things Certain in Life are Death, Taxes… and Insurance [Keep It Simple with TurboTax]

Only Things Certain in Life

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and TurboTax, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #TurboTaxACA http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV It's mid-February which means Spring is just around the corner... that also means April 15th is right around the corner!  I would guess that my mailbox isn't the only one that is received W2's and 1099's and maybe even 1098 forms if you're heading back to school or have a child in college.  Tax time... it's a love it or leave it attitude for most and that usually depends on how big of a refund you expect to get! This year, though, it seems that people have more questions than in years past - I know I did.  With the new Affordable Health Care Act you may be a bit confused at how that affects your filing this year too.  But fear not because TurboTax … [Read more...]

Let Doctor On Demand Help During Flu Season [+ Exclusive Coupon Code for Free Call]

DoctoronDemandCodeUpdated

This is a sponsored conversation on behalf of the Doctor On Demand App.  All opinions are my own. This year's flu season is particularly severe. Our whole family just got over the flu a few weeks ago and it was not fun.  We decided to treat our symptoms at home after seeing on the news that hospitals were urging people with flu-like symptoms to avoid the ER, since our symptoms started on the weekend.  Luckily, we all recovered well, but I was well aware that it could get serious and fast - which is why I was glad I had a doctor just a smartphone away. With Doctor On Demand, you can treat the flu from home using your smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer, by having a Video Visit with a Board Certified physician. Doctor on Demand physicians can diagnose, treat, and even write prescriptions for the flu and nearly any other … [Read 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...]

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...]

Personalized Christmas Gifts for Friends from Personalization Mall

Gift Guide for Friends

December is moving right along - yes, it's only the 4th, but it seems like just yesterday it was Halloween - which means Christmas is literally just right around the corner.  If you're anything like me, Holiday Lists are one thing that's totally taking over your To-Do List.

A Look at Bummis Cloth Diapers: Flannel Fitted, Simply Lite Diaper Cover, and Potty Pant

Bummis Cover

Hi, I'm Tasha! A forever 29 year old, born and raised in the south, wife to Mr. G, and mommy to two sweet boys, Weston and William.  After working in the banking industry for 10 years, I recently resigned and accepted the highly demanding position of SAHM.  Cloth diapers, monograms, smocked clothing, consignment sales, make up, sweet tea, crafting, cooking, baby snuggles, and toddler giggles are just a few of my favorite things! I'm excited for the opportunity to contribute to the mommy blogging world, and I look forward to sharing some of my experiences with you!   I have always wanted to try a Bummis cloth diaper, so I was super excited for the opportunity to do a review on a few complimentary items from Bummis. I received a Flannel Fitted diaper, a Simply Lite diaper cover, and a Potty Pant. FLANNEL FITTED This diaper … [Read more...]

A Review of the Lily Cup Compact: The First Collapsible Menstrual Cup

First collapsible Menstrual Cup

It's been awhile since I last talked menstrual cups, but they're still one of the most popular reasons people come to my blog.  I never imagined that I would write about such a subject like this but when something changes your life, literally, you have to share it.  So here I am, continuing to share my love and freedom that has come to my life, all courtesy of menstrual cups. I say those words, of course, with a little tongue in cheek behind them.  I try to make light of a sometimes gloomy subject - our period.  But the thing is, once I started successfully using a cup, I stopped dreading my period so much.  Of course I'm not going to go so far as to say I am happy when Aunt Flo comes to visit, but I don't wallow in self pity because I know the horrible cramps and endless amounts of tampons and bathroom trips. I've been a happy … [Read more...]

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...]

aden+anais for Adults [a Review of the bamboo daydream blanket]

Daydream Review

I received an aden+anais daydream blanket for review purposes.  All opinions and absolute love for this luxurious blanket are real and 100% my thoughts.  I've been a lover of all things aden+anais for about 3 years now.  I'm a little sad that I didn't discover this luxurious brand until after Sophia was older for she definitely missed the pampering touch of a lovely swaddle tucked in a+a. Of course she enjoyed that swaddle a little later than normal, but still, she enjoyed it.  Moreaya has been an aden+anais blanket girl from the start and still sleeps with a swaddle blanket [definitely a security blanket for her] and her bamboo dream blanket keeping her warm every night.  From the moment I reviewed the swaddles I wished for an adult sized version.  Either they really listen to what I have to say or I wasn't alone in that … [Read more...]
