Qixels by Moose Toys


There are some special times that you find a toy that your kids love.  They want to spend all of their time playing with this toy.  They are perfectly happy and perfectly engrossed in this activity, and are not wanting to do anything else. There is something even more special  when all FOUR of your kids find something that they love to do together and can spend hours playing together. In our home, Qixels is this special thing.  Seriously, can I … [Continue reading...]

Lifelong LOVE of reading! The Story Starts Here.


This post is sponsored by Scholastic.  All opinions are my own. The Story Starts here. The Story starts now. Teaching your kids the lifetime LOVE of reading can start in your own home and can start at a really young age. Every since my kids were young, we made the habit of reading as a family. This was an important choice for me because I recognized that the earlier you start reading to your kids the more they would love it.  Now that my kids … [Continue reading...]

How to have a balance meal with a busy schedule

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 9.12.22 PM

This post is sponsored by Stouffer's.  All opinions are my own. Did you know that Most Americans only meet the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for proper nutrition roughly 7 days out of 365! (According to the NPD Group National Eating Trends Database)  I would say that this number shocks me, but then I take a step back at my own life and eating habits and I realize that this isn't something that I am very good at either.  I don't think I am as bad as … [Continue reading...]

Toy Story That Time Forgot

TOY STORY THAT TIME FORGOT - "Toy Story That Time Forgot," a new Christmas special featuring your favorite characters from the "Toy Story" films, will air on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 2 (8:00-8:30 p.m., ET). During a post-Christmas play date, the "Toy Story" gang find themselves in uncharted territory when the coolest set of action figures ever turn out to be dangerously delusional. It's all up to Trixie, the triceratops, if the gang hopes to return to Bonnie's room in this "Toy Story That Time Forgot." (Disney/Pixar 2014)

I love Toy Story, so I am always excited when they come out with a new movie or short film.  I was a young teenager when the first movie came out, so I have spent more than half of my life with the characters.  The movies have so much heart, emotion, and friendship that it is impossible to watch them without feeling like the characters are a part of our own lives. Since having kids, I have loved sharing these characters with my kids and … [Continue reading...]

Finding Dory Trailer


My four year old daughter has been watching Finding Nemo on repeat.  It is funny how kids get hooked on a show and want to watch it again and again.  Luckily, she is hooked on a movie that I really like so I don't mind having it playing.  Finding Nemo truly shows the importance of family and never giving up and I love the lessons my kids can learn from it. I made the mistake recently of telling my daughter that they are making a Finding Dory … [Continue reading...]

Pirate’s Dinner Adventure Buena Park


This post is sponsored by Pirate's Dinner Adventure Buena Park.  All opinions are my own. If you would do to the Pirate's Dinner Adventure on a regular day, you would a massive Pirate ship and an epic pirate battle.  At Halloween time, though the show is quite different because instead of Pirates you have Vampirates!  When you first arrive at your dinner show you are assigned a Vampirate that you will cheer on during the show.  We were assigned … [Continue reading...]

I didn't know what to expect when I first heard that we would be going to the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament show when we were on vacation.  It was at the end of our busy day and I was afraid that my kids would not enjoy the show and get grumpy from being so tired.  I have had other friends who loved this show so I was excited to … [Continue reading...]

Huggies Little Movers Diapers


 When I was younger I thought time went so slow.  Each school year seemed to go on forever and being an adult seemed to be forever away.  Now that I am an adult, it seems like life moves in such epically fast ways that I am eager to cherish every moment.  It seemed like just yesterday that my oldest was born and somehow he is almost 13.  There are so many amazing moments in childhood and I love being able to capture all of these moments so we can … [Continue reading...]

Jenny Craig Weight Loss Starter Kit available at Walmart


I was provided a free Jenny Craig Weight Loss Starter Kit. However, the opinions expressed are entirely my own. Every January, men and women around the world start talking about Weight Loss.  They make resolutions, sets goals and are determined to lose weight.  Many people get discouraged because their resolutions fail. Personally, I think that it is silly that people enjoy a holiday full of eating and then suddenly decide its resolution time. … [Continue reading...]

Homemade Cheese Pizza


This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Ragu® . The opinions and text are all mine. With four kids, we are always on the go.  It seems like every night someone isn't able to be at the dinner table because they are at baseball, dance, scouts, or another after school program.  Because life can be so busy, we have made it a priority in our family to have Pizza movie night every Saturday night.  I love this night because it is … [Continue reading...]
