Hands-on-Prints Educational Books (with Giveaway)

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Hands-on-Prints books. I received educational books to facilitate my review. As much as I love all things tech-related (phones! tablets! fitness gadgets! oh my!), I'm still a reader and writer at heart. And now that my 5-year-old early reader is developing a passion to learn and read, it's more important than ever that we have real, actual, tangible, hard-cover, page-turner books in the house. I was a Literature ... [read more]

Chocolate Pavlova with Fresh Strawberries #MobileMemories

This chocolate pavlova recipe post has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and Walmart Family Mobile. All opinions about Walmart best plans are mine alone. #MobileMemories #CollectiveBias What do homemade summer desserts and the lowest priced unlimited plans from Walmart have in common? Both can help you hold on to your sweet summer memories long after the season is over.  I had my first pavlova in the summertime when I was about 8 or 9. My mom made it, and I was instantly ...

Family Travel: Crayola Experience in Easton PA

I received 2 tickets in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. ________ I thought my peeps had my back. Apparently, this is not the case because when I decided it would be a good idea to plan a 2-day road trip with just me and the kids, nobody stood up and shook some sense into me. Maybe there were just blinded by the incredible fun we were about to have at the Crayola Experience in Easton, PA (it's the place that used to be known as the Crayola Factory.) And if so, ...

Drop your pants for #Underwareness. Wait, what!? (with Starbucks giveaway)

Got kids? If so, how many times have you said, "Why didn't anyone TELL me about this part of it?" I'm talking about the afterpains. The hair loss. The sad puppy that becomes part of your belly (and never really goes away.) I'm talking about the bladder leakage. (Don't worry, no one is listening. It's just you and me here.) Yeah, we don't like to talk about it. But we need to. It happens to the best of us, the strongest of us, the busiest of us, ANY of us – and it's nothing to be ashamed ... [read more]

Turkey Hill Dairy Introduces All Natural Gelato #TurkeyHillGelato

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Turkey Hill Dairy. All opinions are my own. #TurkeyHillGelato Let me assure you, I'm very dedicated to my work. So when Turkey Hill Dairy asked me to purchase 3 of their new all natural gelato flavors and give them a try, I didn't stop there. No, sir, I bought all eight. Oh come on, wouldn't you? Especially with the smiles that follow? I make no secret of the fact that ice cream is my favorite way to treat myself, unwind, ... [read more]

Rest Easy and #DoMore Knowing Your Child is Safe (Video Monitor Giveaway)

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Levana. All opinions and text are my own. I'll admit it. It might not be too far off to call me an overworrier. (Is that a word?) When my kids were born, I was entirely prepared to hover over them forever, ensuring their safety at any given moment of the day. We cosleep, mainly because I get this weird anxiety that keeps me up some nights, and I like knowing they're safe nearby. I've gotten a grip over the years and settled down a ... [read more]
