Enter to win the Lincoln Logs Collector’s Edition Homestead!


  Special thanks to Ruth from Viva Veltoro for sharing this review and giveaway with us today! I'm going to show my age for a moment here and say that I remember the good ole' days when toys didn't have a touch screen and there weren't apps for everything.  My childhood toys were all based on imaginative play - Cabbage Patch Kids, Barbie Dolls, Lincoln Logs - you get the idea.  I remember playing in our finished basement for hours with ...continue reading

Teaser for Avengers: Age of Ultron {Have You Seen It Yet?!}


Question: What movie has the coolest teaser trailer of the year and why is it Avengers: Age of Ultron? Answer: Because fans who were worried about the "'Disneyfication' of Marvel" got the "'Marvelfication' of Disney" instead. Seriously. Joss Whedon (the director) took "I've Got No Strings" from the classic animated film Pinocchio and made it incredibly unsettling in its tempo and meaning. Had I seen this trailer before going to Disney World ...continue reading

Brolly Sheets Giveaway! TWO Winners!

brolly sheets

Special thanks to Camille from Viva Veltoro for sharing this review and giveaway with us today! Potty-training is not my favorite stage of motherhood.  It actually wasn't all that bad when we took the plunge with our toddler, and he caught on really quick, but because he's such an intensely deep sleeper at night, we left "night potty training" for later.  Later is now, and its not so much fun.  I decided that if I was going to be changing an ...continue reading

CanOrganizer.com {Simple, Inexpensive Organization}


This post is sponsored by CanOrganizer.com, the answer for affordable organization. As Janessa can assuredly tell you, organization is my pet peeve. Perhaps I am just particular. Or perhaps I am a bit OCD. (With my level of compulsion for this sort of thing, I am leaning towards the latter). Whatever the actual reason, clutter can destroy my psyche quicker than any number of horrifying tortures including: Stepping on a Lego ...continue reading

The HUSH Hat by HUSH Baby


This is a sponsored post on behalf of HUSH Baby. Our townhouse is slowly filling up. Between the children and their toys, there isn't much room for other things. Because our house is basically one big play room, it gets a little noisy no matter what floor you are on. For our newest little one, getting a good nap can be a challenge among the various screeches, howls and clattering of toys emanating from all levels of our home. We attempt to drown ...continue reading
