  My kids love everything LeapFrog. Ever since they were infants we’ve been purchasing their products. In my opinion, LeapFrog continuously puts out quality toys and their latest venture, LeapTV, is no different. We were lucky enough to sample their product. Call me crazy, but I brought home 8 kids one afternoon from school (yes, all […]...

  I don’t know about you, but with my crazy schedule, I’m lucky if I get to put make-up on, much less have a skin routine.  I’ve tried to tell my kids that ever since they came into the world, not only have I started getting grey hairs, but I’m also noticing more and more […]...

My sister and I love holiday coffees, but the cost can add up pretty dang quickly!  With the holiday season and all of the shopping we’ve done, it’s time to cut back on the purchasing of flavored coffee drinks.  Thanks to Mom Central and NESCAFÉ, we had the opportunity to check out the awesome NESCAFÉ […]...

With the holiday break quickly approaching, I find my social calendar suddenly overflowing.  Are you hosting a party?  Having family visit from out of town? Or are you planning on slowing down this season and spending time at home with your family?  Who knows, you may be doing all of the above!   This is a […]...

My 6-year-old daughter recently became a fan of Monster High, huge fan!  And I have to admit; at first glance I didn’t see what the big deal was.  However, after watching a few of their movies, they have converted me into a fan as well.  Originality, uniqueness, and being different is cool – I like […]...

I am a fan of ARM & HAMMER products!  Not only do I use their products for baking and keeping my refrigerator fresh, but I also use their products for good oral hygiene.  I have used other ARM & HAMMER toothpastes, but this was my first time trying out the ARM & HAMMER™ Sensitive Toothpaste and an […]...

Individual cups are so yesterday!  Esio Beverage System is the future of drink systems.  I love that not only can I make hot coffee with a touch of the button, but I can also control the strength of my drink.  I was never a fan of K-Cups because I don’t like my coffees so strong; […]...

Do you compost?  I have to confess, I don’t now but I want to.  I love gardening (I may not be great at it, but I enjoy it), but I’m finding that my soil needs some TLC.  I need to fertilize it.  What better way to get the nourishment it needs then to add some […]...

  It seems like these days everything that was once old is new again but with twist. Remember those old rotary phones where the phone cord would wrap itself up? It would take forever for the 9 to roll forward then back. Maybe your grandparents still own one. Technology has come a long way since […]...

This summer was full of some of our greatest family memories!  They included trips to theme parks, barbecuing outdoors, a trip to Hawaii, swim parties, and more.  With 3 boys (and now 2 more girls and a boy), we’ve had our fair share of stains to treat from summer fun!  Stains varied from ketchup drippings […]...

Since becoming a mom, I’ve found myself being a lot more concerned with the products I use with my kids. After learning about all of the harmful chemicals companies use to create lather, etc, I found myself searching for quality products.  Just as I was giving up on my quest, we were contacted by eco.kid to test out their […]...
