DK Discovery Day ~ LEGO Awesome Ideas! ~ GIVEAWAY!

Creativity…versatility…imagination. Those are three of my favorite words when it comes to the world of toys. After being a mom for about 9 years, it has become quite clear to me that the toys that get played with the most and that are the most enjoyed by our children are toys that can be used […]

Snackin’ Sara! ~ GIVEAWAY!

I love watching my little girls pretend to be “Mommies!” Just last night my darling 3 year old was busy taking care of her baby. She was wrapped up all snug in a blanket, sitting in a toy shopping cart that was packed full of stuff they had been shopping for (you know, stuff like […]

Crafting with the Orb Factory! ~ GIVEAWAY!

Crafts are one of my favorite activities to do with my girls. I used to be a crafty kid when I was young, and now it’s just SO fun to be able to “awaken” that crafty side once again and enjoy it all over again with my own kids. Simply put, I love it.  One […]

Peace, Joy, Color ~ GIVEAWAY!

Coloring is one of those things that falls into the category of something that I do not need to do, but when I do sit down and color it sure is relaxing! 😉 It’s kinda like puzzles. Not necessary, but relaxing! I especially love to do these activities with our kids. It’s a great way […]

Owlegories ~ GIVEAWAY!

That big black box…the TV. It’s one of the things in our home that I both love & really dislike! I love it because it can provide quality entertainment and teaching for the kids that does not involve me having to be the one doing the entertainment or teaching. Our kids enjoy watching documentaries, or […]

With three daughters in our home, the requests to have ‘painted nails’ are coming […]

Striking, Fresh, Modern Wall Decor!

The truth is…I’m not really into artwork. There are no paintings hanging up in our home (unless you count the ones my kids made that are stuck to the fridge 😉 ) and there’s no professionally made artwork anywhere in our home. I guess it just isn’t our style. Instead, our style is all about […]

Holiday Treats from Hasbro!

Something crafty, something practical, something for the boys, something for that girly girl, something educational…and the list goes on! There are so many different types of gifts that family members and friends look for during the Christmas season. And I know full well that, as a mom of five children, there really isn’t a lot […]

Salton Garment Steamer

There are household tools that come and go. And then there are tools that come and stay. Salton sent me a stay-er!  You see, I don’t enjoy ironing that much. Sure, I love the look of a crisply ironed shirt. But I know that once you sit in the car to get where you’re going, that […]
