Magic Castle Bounce House Review and #Giveaway (5 winners)

After months of this Polar Vortex nonsense, my kids are bouncing off the walls. Well, we decided to put that energy to better use and let them bounce where they’re supposed to: in a Magic Castle Inflatable Bounce House! We recently got one to review, and while we’ll have to wait until it warms up just a little more to really give it a workout, my son saw the picture on the box so we decided to give it a trial run last weekend.

My husband gave me the huffy face when I asked him to set it up. I guess he thought he was in for a big job, but we were all delighted to see how easy it was. You just plug in the blower and turn it on! It went from flat to UP in no time! Really, it was like 2 minutes. Maybe less.

Look how proud he is! That is one happy boy, and I’m going to be one happy mama when I have this to keep him busy in the spring. The Magic Castle holds 3 kids at a time, or up to 300 pounds, so it looks like the cousins might be hanging out with us this year!

I think we might set it up near the garden so I can weed while he bounces. I can’t think of a better afternoon! Our ground is just a tad too frozen right now for the stakes that are recommended to stabilize the whole setup, so for the sake of safety, I just let him have one quick bounce and then we packed it up for a few weeks. I’m so glad we took a trial run, though, because now I know I can set it up by myself with the 2 kids in tow. #WIN

Happy 45th Anniversary to The Very Hungry Caterpillar! {Giveaway}

babyphoto

We’re a reading household. As a long-time writer and literature major, most of my life revolves around the written word. My husband burns through library cards like crazy, and we’re happy to report that the kids seem to be picking up our love of books! My son is even starting to read and he’s picking it up quickly. Watching him read some of the classics I read as a child just makes my bookwormy heart flutter, and one of our favorites is The Very Hungry Caterpillar – a book that just happens to be celebrating its 45th anniversary!

Snacks You Can Trust from Van’s Natural Foods

babyphoto

The best tip I know for sticking to a whole foods diet? Shop the perimeter of the grocery store. That’s where the fresh foods live, so don’t go down those aisles! But let’s be honest – as much as we’d like to make every cracker from scratch, every mom needs a few go-to prepackaged foods for those days when homemade just doesn’t happen. For us, one of those options is Van’s Natural Foods.

Van's Natural Foods

We’ve tried lots of Van’s products before, but earlier this year, they launched their first gluten-free snack line with crackers, cereals and snack bars. Like all Van’s choices, these snacks feature high-quality ingredients without artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors or preservatives. They’re perfect for lunchboxes, road trips, or the secret pocket in my purse! Continue reading

My goals for 2014? Getting healthy, drinking more water, saving money, looking fabulous – they’re all in full swing with the help of our new secret weapon: Tervis tumblers!

Wait, what? Plastic cups? Yeah, I know. I don’t do much plastic. I was hesitant to try Tervis tumblers, but when it comes to water, I like a clear cup. My stainless steel bottles always leave me guessing about how clean they really are inside, plus Tervis makes a great looking cup that’s fun to carry (and I need all the help I can get staying hydrated.)
