Step2 Ford Raptor: Built Girl Tough [+a giveaway!]

Step2-Raptor-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. If there's one thing that my girls love, it's being outside so when we get a new toy that can make their outside time even more fun - they're in love. That's pretty much how I would sum up their feelings about the new 2-in-1 Ford® F-150 Raptor SVT from Step2.  From the moment the box was delivered, these girls were ready drive around their own Ford Truck.  Unfortunately Daddy wasn't home when the box arrived and I was a tiny bit concerned when I pulled the parts out of the box. It seemed like quite the assembly process, but since I was talking up the "Girls can be tough, Girls can drive trucks!" mentality with them, I had to show just how good I could get with a screwdriver.  That's all … [Read more...]

How Do the NEW FuzziBunz One Size Cloth Diapers Stand Up? [+ a giveaway!]

FuzziBunz Giveaway

I've been out of the cloth diaper scene for a few months now since Moreaya potty trained.  It was really my life for the last 4 and a half years so I have a lot of experience with cloth diapers, but I swear things have really changed in just the last few months, including one of the biggest changes in one of the top brands on the market... FuzziBunz! FuzziBunz Cloth Diapers were one of my favorites with both girls, specifically their Perfect Size Diapers.  Although I loved the concept of an One Size Cloth Diaper, those perfect sizes just gave us the best fit, so I had quite a few in our stash.  Just recently, FuzziBunz changed ownership and with that decided to totally re-design their One Size Cloth Diaper and they sent me a couple to share with you! While some might call this post a review, please remember that I don't have a child … [Read more...]

Tomato, Spinach, and Pancetta Frittata [+ a review of the Philips Airfryer]

Frittata on Plate

Do you love making delicious meals that are easy?!  Yeah, you know I do and today's recipe for a Tomato Spinach and Pancetta Frittata is just that.  I know, it doesn't look like it would be something that you could literally throw together and it cook itself, but it really is - see the recipe below! A few weeks ago I received an email asking if I would like to learn more about a newer kitchen appliance from Philips [to review at no cost to me].  When I read the specs on the Philips Airfryer, I have to admit, I was totally intrigued and totally a skeptic.  I was so intrigued [and still skeptical] that I sent the link to my husband and my best friend saying "I'm going to eat fried chicken every day if this thing really works!" You see, here in the South, we like our fried foods.  Just ask my blogging friends that joined me in east … [Read more...]

How To Jump Start Your Child’s Digestive Health with Florastor Kids [+ giveaway!]

Jump Start Child's Health

I am part of the PTPA Brand Ambassador Program with Florastor and I received compensation as part of my affiliation with this group.  The opinions on this blog are my own. Both of my girls were amazingly healthy eaters when they were really little.  Sophia's favorite food was a green one - broccoli.  Any time we had it, she always asked for more.  Moreaya was the same way with peas.  Then something happened, the same thing that seems to happen to all toddlers - the color green and food just doesn't work well together any more and you struggle with getting them to eat anything healthy it seems. [I know I'm not alone here!] So, what do you do when picky eating actually becomes a problem?  Putting your child on a multivitamin is always a great first step, but there are other issues that can arise because of dietary neglect on the picky … [Read more...]

Updating Outdoors: A Review of the Brylane Home Wood Gazebo

Brylane Home Wood Gazebo

We spend a lot of time outdoors in the Spring-Fall.  With two girls that would rather be playing outside than spending time indoors, it's only natural that we'd want to spruce up our outdoor setting.  Each year we add a new project to our house - to better it and make it more updated and more us.  In the past, we've updated landscaping, built a wooden deck for our patio, installed container garden beds, and turned our backyard into a toy sanctuary. This year has been all about updating our back deck sitting conditions.  We entertain friends and family a lot, so we needed an area that welcomes guests and makes every day sitting a pleasure outside. One thing that has been a complete eye sore this year was our patio umbrella.  It normally sits over our table to provide us with a bit of shade since we don't have any trees or anything else … [Read more...]

A Cat That’s Going Green: Eco Friendly Cat Litter from Swheat Scoop

Cat with Swheat Scoop

This is a sponsored conversation about eco friendly cat litter on behalf of Swheat Scoop.  All opinions expressed are my own. As a family that's been on a going green journey for over 4 years now [oh that fateful day that we decided to use cloth diapers while I was pregnant with Sophia], I've changed a lot of things in our household.  We use way less paper products and many more chemical-free products all over the house now.  One area that I hadn't really thought much about has to do with the 5th member of our family... Roxy! Roxy was my first child - as a graduating Senior in high school, I found her looking for a home and I took her into ours and she's made it through adding 3 more additions to our family since - Rob, Sophia, and Moreaya!  I once read a quote that your pets are your babies until you have babies and then they become … [Read more...]

Get Organized with the Brylane Home Shelf with Drawers

Inside Storage Shelf

I've featured BrylaneHome.com on SEBG quite a few times and today they're back and I'm sharing a review of the 5 Tier Shelf with Drawers. My home office is overrun with stuff - giveaway prizes, items waiting to be reviewed, toys that mysteriously appear, and even more stuff.  My desk is always cluttered and it just makes for a complicated and clustered work area.  I needed an organizing shelf that didn't take up a lot of space, but that would hold the random items that take over! Of course, there's a bit of assembly, like with any piece of furniture.  I was able to assemble the shelf by myself very easily and fast - I had it together within 15 minutes. My favorite thing about the 5 Tier Shelf is the Fabric Drawers that are included. There are 2 sizes - 2 large fabric drawers on the bottom and 3 on the upper half.  They really … [Read more...]

Welcome to Sophia’s Cafe – a Review of the Step2 Best Chef’s Play Kitchen

Step2 Review Kitchen

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. My girls got a lot of my hand-me-down toys.  Sure, they were vintage, but they just kind of lacked the technology and smoothness of modern day toys.  When I had the chance to upgrade the girls' Play Kitchen to the brand new Step2 Best Chef's Play Kitchen, I jumped at the chance.  Speaking of jumping - that's what the girls did too when the Play Kitchen box arrived at the door! Forget the idea of waiting on Daddy to come home and assemble the Play Kitchen - they wanted it right then and I totally don't blame them - I was excited to see it too!  The Best Chef's Kitchen came in 3 major pieces and was very easy to put together with a few screws [included].  While I was assembling the … [Read more...]

Natural Colored Cotton Clothing for Your Little One – Debest Baby

picture2

This post is brought to you courtesy of Debest Baby, who provided one of their adorable natural cotton onesies to Jamie of Momma Without a Clue  for review.  All opinions expressed are 100% Jamie's own. When a baby company goes above and beyond to keep our little ones healthy, they automatically earn credit in my book. That's why I was thrilled to be able to review a piece from their clothing line. You see, Debest uses naturally colored cotton to create beautiful clothes that will not only last for years, they're free from harmful toxins, bleaches, and dyes. For my baby girl, we received the "Blossoms In Bloom" short-sleeve bodysuit. This organic onesie is heavier than most of the other brands she's worn, but in a breathable kind of way. The natural cotton color is a gorgeous background for the little cherry blossom print, and the … [Read more...]

Doctor On Demand: A Doctor That’s Always a Phone Call Away

Dr on Demand Emergency

This is a sponsored conversation on behalf of the Doctor On Demand App.  All opinions are my own. I count myself lucky that my family is pretty healthy in general.  I hardly ever have the need to visit a doctor and occasionally have to take the girls in for sick visits, but I still count myself lucky.  On those occurrences that we do have to make a doctor's office visit, I'm usually completely stressed out - waiting and worrying how long it will take to actually get an appointment, taking 2 kids into an office where so many germs are floating around, dealing with 1 or 2 sick kids in public when all they want is to be held by Mom at home, and don't even get me started on the worry about how much it will cost. But what about those times that they're sick on the weekends?  Holidays?  Vacations?  Moreaya actually ran a super high fever … [Read more...]

Cloth Wipes and Paper-Less Towels from Gina’s Soft Cloth Shop

Rainbow Wipes

A few weeks ago, I featured Gina's Soft Cloth Shop during the Relish Reusable Event.  She gave away a fantastic selection of cloth wipes and paper-less towels and today I'm giving you a closer look at the items that you can find in her Etsy Shop! I received a package of a variety of cloth wipes and paper-less towels free to share with readers through a review.  The package was honestly a bit breathtaking.  I know, I know - it's a super weird thing to say about cloth wipes - but the variety, the colors, the soft textures - they were just beautiful! Within the package, I got to see almost all of the cloth products that are for sale in Gina's Soft Cloth Shop. 2 packs of 5 OBV wipes [20] 1-plyorganic little wipes (rainbow colors assortment) [2]  2-Ply Organic Birdseye Dishtowels (ivory edges) [10]  1-plyOrganic Birdseye … [Read more...]

Deliciously Simple French Toast [made with Almondmilk]

French Toast Almond Milk

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Silk. The opinions and text are all mine. Before I share this delicious and simple French Toast recipe with you, I want to share with you just how we became family that loves Silk Almondmilk. When Sophia was diagnosed with a dairy allergy in January of this year, we were all in shock. Here we were with a 3 1/2 year old that consumes dairy every single day and we were all of a sudden supposed to stop that?! I was overwhelmed with just how much dairy was in almost every single food she consumed. I was nervous that as a pretty picky toddler she would struggle to replace her dairy favorites with dairy alternatives. One of the first brands we tried was Silk. I knew their reputation and I was happy that I could find their products right in the main grocery store where we … [Read more...]
