Kindle Fire Giveaway!



Back-To-School with Toys"R"Us and a Giveaway!

This is a sponsored post that contains affiliate links.

It feels like this summer has shot by so quickly! Before you know it, teachers will be decorating their classrooms, kids will be ready to start school again, and it will be time for back-to-school shopping! Ever since I was a kid, I have always loved doing the back-to-school shopping. Pencils, paper, glue, but most fun is the backpacks and personalizing folders, lunch bags and more.

The latest in Luxery Soap + Giveaway!

*This post is brought to you by Marshmallow Soap Co. 

If you are looking for a unique way to pamper yourself or someone else, look no further than the Marshmallow Soap Company lathering soaps!  As you may have guessed, their soaps literally feel like a soft marshmallow.  Gone are the days of bland, boring soap...this soap is a party for your senses!  Not only does it feel like an actual marshmallow, but the scents are tremendous.  The flavors range from coffee-based to fruity.  The smell is strong enough that they will leave your bathroom smelling like a coffee shop or fresh fruit stand when you are done without having that “air freshener smell”.

Feeding "The Crew"

Mostly Together Dad (MTD) and I have purchased our very first home! We are very excited and can't wait to move in, but first, I want to get everything painted. Because of this, I have spent the past 2 weeks painting. Seriously. It feels like it will never end. It feels like I am painting the same things over and over and over again!

One of the worst things about spending all of my time working on the house is the fact that I haven't had time to prepare a proper dinner for my family. MTD hasn't either, as he has been fixing this leak or that squeal on the car.

Ready...Set...Potty Train! Review and Giveaway

*This post is brought to you by Baby Bjorn.

My little Sophia is just about 18 months. She loves going to the potty with me - privacy in the bathroom has long been a thing of the past for this mama! She is starting to show an interest in what goes on in there and she is also in a mimicking stage. That all combines to make this a perfect time for her to have her own little potty!

As this is my third child to potty train, I have learned a thing or two about the process. First, the earlier you can start, the better. My children are stubborn and only get more so as they age. Most parents can relate. At 18 months, I don't really expect much to happen when she sits on the potty, but it's more of getting comfortable with the seat and the idea of the whole thing that you need to get them used to.

Little Speaker that Packs a BIG Punch

*This post is brought to you by DKnight.

Let me first say that I am NOT an expert when it comes to electronics. To be honest, I don't really understand things like acoustic drivers, audio spectrum, and the like. I am probably an average user of electronics, enjoying computers, music, phones, and such.

A Budding Engineer!

*This post is brought to you by The Learning Journey.

My 9 year old son is a builder. He loves any and all construction sets and building blocks. He has such an imagination that it seems to come very naturally to him. He is fascinated with how things work and can spend hours trying to figure something out. He also loves the show, "How It's Made."
