GoldieBlox Dunk Tank

Product received for review purposes. All opinions are my own. As a parent of two girls, I have had years of frustration when it comes to gender roles and expectations. I want them to know that there are no limits for them, only stereotypes. Because of these stereotypes, many young girls are losing their interest in math and science as young as 8. That is just sad. So many of these girls are wired to be great engineers. As it stands, though, … [Read more...]

Sauder Challenge | The Sauder Experience From Ordering to Assembly

Sauder Original Cottage Collection Desk

Sauder Challenge | The Sauder Experience From Ordering to Assembly This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Sauder. The opinions and text are all mine. A couple of weeks ago our house underwent a huge room swap endeavor which left me with one of the bigger rooms for my new office space. My husband and my oldest helped with the swap and paint jobs that followed... the last step was for me to choose a piece of … [Read more...]

7 Affordable Back to School Devices #WindowsChampions


7 Back to School Devices I am writing this post as part of the Windows Champions ambassador program. All opinions are my own. The school bell is ringing nationwide and the children are filing into the classrooms. Whether you have an elementary school student or college student, chances are they will need some sort of device. We are fortunate enough to live in a district that offers take home units for most of the children. Unfortunately … [Read more...]

Back to School Room Makeover

Screen Shot 2014-08-20 at 12.04.54 PM

A gift card was received to shop for makeover items. All opinions are my own.   Emma's room changes almost as often as her mind does. Either by necessity (things wear out) or by choice it seems like we are always on the hunt for something a little different. The set above was our latest look. As cute as it was, Emma never really clicked with the comforter and after a few upset tummy accidents last fall/winter, it really needed to … [Read more...]

Leappad 3 from LeapFrog


Leappad 3 from LeapFrog I received this product for free as part of a promotional program with LeapFrog. All opinions are my own. My Ethan is a little LeapPad expert. He has owned every version since the original and currently plays with the Ultra. I knew he would be interested in testing out the new version, but wondered what he would think of the new LeapPad 3 when it arrived. As with the previous versions, the LeapPad 3 offers … [Read more...]

Homemade PB&J Uncrustables


Homemade Uncrustables PB&J School is back in session here in Missouri. That means it's time to break out the lunch boxes and creativity. My son is an avid fan of Uncrustables sandwiches. He actually eats them partially frozen. I like that he will actually eat what I put in his lunch box, but I would prefer to save a little money and control the ingredients being used. Then I found the Sandwich Sealer and Decruster on Amazon. Ahhh! … [Read more...]

Back to School with Fruit of the Loom | $75 Walmart GC #GIVEAWAY | ends 8/30 | #TGIBTS


I received a gift card from Fruit of the Loom in exchange for writing this blog post. Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are my own.   #TGIBTS stands for “Thank Goodness It’s Back to School” and is for all those moms out there who are excited about this time of year. Personally for me this year brought mixed emotions. On one hand the kids were already climbing the walls and were bored. Outside was not longer attractive and … [Read more...]
