Playaway LIGHT & View All-in-One Audiobook

PicMonkey Collage

*Product was received. Opinions are mine. Lets face it, long car rides are no fun for anyone! Especially for kids. The never-ending "are we there yet" from the backseat can make any parent go insane.. It is best to keep those kids quiet and interested in something else, other than when we will arrive at the destination we are headed towards. Sure you can give them books, but if your kids are like my kids, they get car sick if they read! I can give them my tablet or toys to play with, but those get boring too. Sigh. I try to have a basket near them, with fun things to grab out of it, for the long car rides. But, it never fails, they get BORED still :(   To help with not only car boredom, but home rainy day boredoms too, we were sent the Playaway Light and Playaway View to check out. The Playaway LIGHT is an all-in-one audiobook format you love now with a larger, backlit screen, friendlier controls, advanced firmware, and an increasingly intuitive design. So now you or your … [Read more...]

Insight Kids Books: Designed to inspire and delight children of all ages (Giveaway)

PicMonkey Collage

*Product was received. Opinions are mine. Lately, I have been getting more into reading and reading with my kids. I use to LOVE grabbing a good book and sitting for HOURS by myself reading, until I was done! Now that I have kids, I can't really sit for hours and do that anymore. BUT, I can take an hour at night, when everyone is in bed! Love it! I think it is so neat watching my kids pick out books to read quietly together. I am glad that they do enjoy reading, in this day and age. So many times kids want to be on the computer or game system. Sure, my kids do too, but seeing them opt for a good book instead, makes me a proud mama :) Launched last year, Insight Kids brings the quality and values exemplified by their parent, imprint to children's publishing. Designed to inspire and delight children of all ages and adults alike, their books are packed with stunning visuals and innovative interactive features by authors and illustrators. We received a few wonderful titles for my … [Read more...]

Meet The Happy’s! #TheHappys


*Products were received, opinions are mine. This post contains my affiliate link. Now, we don't have any pets. Okay, we have two birds, but that is it. No canines for me to take care of and no kitties to clean up after. I have kids, why on earth would I need pets too?! My kids would LOVE a doggy or kitty, but me? Nah. No thanks! I am not really a 'pet' person to begin with, so I am on the fence with this one. However, a toy dog or cat? Ya, I can do that.. I was accepted to host a playdate with the new Happy’s pets. What are they? They are really cute, interactive pets, without all the hair, stink and neediness :) Now, not only are The Happy's totally adorbs, but they really play with you! They scamper, they pounce and they sit up and beg! My kids had a blast playing with them! Their friends had a fun time too! My house was busy! Lots of pets scampering around and doing silly tricks! Chasing balls and zooming in between my feet! I had to be careful not to step on one! The … [Read more...]

I love eating meals together as a family! Each  night, I really look forward to it and so does my family. I also enjoy having nice dishes to eat off of. I have a very nice set of dinnerware just for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I wanted something bright and bold for Spring/Summer! I received a gorgeous dinnerware set. It is called 'Flame of Life Dinnerware' and it is a limited edition dinnerware set by Barbara Lazaroff. The set is so pretty and vibrant! Perfect for those spring and summer feasts or Mother's Day brunch! This is a 16-piece (service for 4) in fine bone china. It includes four vivid colors and draws inspiration from Barbara’s own signature style and distinctive flair.  Each piece carries one inspirational line from “The Flame of Life” poem, which Barbara wrote in 1996 to connote the importance of striving for excellence and living a life filled with purpose and passion.   A portion of proceeds from each set will be donated to Meals on Wheels, an organization … [Read more...]

  *Kohl’s provided me with a Kohl’s Gift Card. Opinions are my own. I love love love Kohl's! I have been an avid shopper there for years. When I lived in Gresham, Oregon, I had one sooo close to me that I went there weekly, no lie! Now, I live a bit further from a Kohl's, while it is good for my pocketbook, I sure do miss it! So, I shop online ;) It is the 10th Anniversary of the daisy fuentes collection at Kohl's and I was able to shop some of her pieces! Daisy’s spring collection is ADORABLE!!! I feverishly shopped online and found some amazing tops, necklace and some black leggings!
