Fruit of the Loom Back to School Walmart Bonus Packs

Back to School with Fruit of the Loom at Walmart + GIVEAWAY #TGIBTS

My kids started back to school this past week, and I always meet this time with mixed emotion. I'm lucky that both of my boys get excited about going back to school, so it is easier to watch them go on the bus. But the start of school also marks the end of the summer. We've had a fabulous summer making a lot of special memories, and I'm so thankful for our quality time. I will miss not having them around during the days, but I'll go back to enjoying some special one-on-one time with my littlest guy. And I definitely love getting back into our familiar routines. Fruit the Loom understands my feelings for "TGIBTS" (Thank Goodness It’s Back to School) and being excited about the back to school season because of all the emotions that accompany … [Read More...]


Telling Time is Fun With the New Vtech Kidizoom® Smartwatch + Giveaway

This past year my 7 year old daughter Danica learned how to tell time.  It has been a blessing as she now understands what it means when we say it is bedtime and she also knows when she wakes up too early in the morning that she should just try to go back to sleep for awhile.  Now, we just need my younger boys ages 5 and 3 to learn.  I don't think it will take long for our 5 year old Kurt to understand.  He is already learning with his new watch we were sent by Vtech to try out. All of my kids love their new Vtech Kidizoom Smartwatch.  I gave it to all of them to share, and the 3 oldest have all been having a lot of fun with it.   Besides being a watch, it offers so much more including games, a camera, video recorder and so much … [Read More...]

Warren Smiling 6 Years Old

My Son’s Need for Braces #InvisalignTalk

When my second son, Warren, was born it was love at first sight. He was beautiful and the perfect addition to our growing family. We've been blessed with very healthy children at birth, but Warren did have a slight issue with his jaw. Almost immediately our doctor noticed that his gum line was not symmetrical. As soon as she pointed it out, it was obvious to us as well. So she recommended that we see a specialist who told us that since it wasn't causing him any troubles with eating, we'd simply wait to see how his teeth grew in and go from there. But he did warn us to start saving for orthodontics now as he had no doubt we'd need them later on. Warren is now six years old and hasn't yet lost any baby teeth. It is hard to know … [Read More...]

Frito Lay Skylanders Good Fun for All Aerial Lift Bridge

Family Adventure On Lake Superior with Frito-Lay and Skylanders® #GoodFunForAll

*This post is sponsored by Frito-Lay. All opinions remain my own.* Earlier this month I shared how my family is trying to enjoy these last days of summer. Frito-Lay offered to help us with a family activity before my kids go back to school next week, so I planned a fun-filled day that I knew everyone would enjoy. To start our day, I packed up a picnic lunch, and we headed out to Leif Erikson Park. It was a beautiful, sunny day. We found a shaded spot, under a big tree. We enjoyed sandwiches, fresh fruit and an assortment of chips from the Skylanders® Frito-Lay Variety Pack. My kids love getting to pick out their own bag of chips.  Everyone was hungry, and the food went fast! The kids love getting to eat on a picnic blanket … [Read More...]
