Dreaming of Spring with Carters! #CartersSpringStyle #ad + GIVEAWAY!

Carter's Spring Style

I participated in this program on behalf of Carter's and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. I know that most of the US is still buried under a bazillion feet of snow, but here in Arizona, we're loving our bragging season -- Spring! I always like to do two big hauls for the kids clothes -- one at the beginning of the school year, and one right before spring break. Our summers are hot and long, so we have to find a TON of great warm weather outfits for all of the kids. We've lucked out in that we have a Carter's store here in the Phoenix metro, so I've been day dreaming about cute outfits … [Read more...]

You haven’t had chocolate until you’ve had a GODIVA Truffle FlightTM. #TruffleTakeoff #Giveaway


You guys know that I’ve been doing my best to just eat like a normal person, stop obsessing over points, and just truly ENJOY food again, right? Well I got an email a while back. From GODIVA. When GODIVA emails, you listen. They wanted to send me some chocolate (YES, PLEASE) and hear what I had to say about them (I can handle that). Ladies and ladies, let me introduce you to the GODIVA Truffle FlightTM.  Yes, that’s a pistachio one in the middle. Yes, it was pretty heavenly. Now, a while back, I would have hesitated. I would’ve counted points and calculated weekly … [Read more...]

#sponsored: #SprayEveryDrop with Clorox Smart Tube! #Giveaway

Clorox Smart Tube Technology

You've been there, I've been there. You're cleaning your kitchen counters, scrubbing away at crusty peanut butter from today's lunch, but you can't quite get the last little bit of cleaner to spray out of your bottle. It's maddening, really. I always end up just unscrewing the darn nozzle, and pouring the last bit out. But then it's a huge mess -- too much liquid, splashing every where. So then Clorox came upon a stroke of genius: What if the spray tube actually sucked up all of the liquid from the bottom of the bottle? And so, an idea was born. That idea turned into Smart Tube … [Read more...]

Keeping Our Bodies in Check with Probiotics from Provella #sponsored

So each time you sit down for a meal, I can pretty much bet money that you're pestering your kids to eat their food ("Broccoli is good for you! Look! They're trees for tiny people!"), right? Right. But do you focus on what you're putting into YOUR body? I know that I do my best to eat right (with the occasional burger splurge), but I am sure that there's more I could be doing to make sure I have a healthy inside. I work out as often as I can, and I drink a lot of water. One thing I don't do, however, is take probiotics. I have always wanted to, but I just never made the leap to actually … [Read more...]

Tea Time with Sophia Grace and Rosie Children’s Book #Review and #Giveaway — SO Good!


Do you guys remember the two little girls from across the pond who rapped to Nicki Minaj's song "Super Bass"? I fell in love with them, and so did Ellen DeGeneres! With imaginations as big as these girls have, I knew they were destined to do something amazing. Rosie reminds me so much of myself when I was a kid. Loud, creative, and possessing more energy than should be allowed ;). These girls have put their talents to great use and have written a children's book! Tea Time with Sophia Grace and Rosie TEA TIME WITH SOPHIA GRACE AND ROSIE is the perfect book for you and your daughter … [Read more...]

I've been itching to get some fun Freckleberry branded swag to wear when I race -- mostly a performance tee that will wick away sweat and yuckies, but still look great. I had looked at a few sites to design one, but I'd never made the jump. When I ran the Skirt Chaser 5K and the Color Run, I was so bummed that I didn't have a fun shirt. So many people had really adorable shirts, and I'm determined to be one of them for my next race! CafePress.com has gotten in touch and they're hooking me up with a performance tee that I can customize with my URL. Sweet! They've also got really cute … [Read more...]

The New Step2 Easy Turn Coupe is here! Win one while helping the Saving tiny hearts Society! #Giveaway


Holy. Awesome. That's what I said when I opened up my door to see the new Step2 Easy Turn Coupe. "But I have a coupe for my kids!" you might be saying. Oh no, my friends. You don't have a coupe like this. Step2 is at the 2013 Toy Fair this weekend debuting the new Easy Turn Coupe, and in celebration, I'm going to give you guys a sneaky peek! This bad boy is a lovechild of two really incredible products. I've always seen parents pushing their kiddos around in ride-ons like the Sportster, but the Easy Turn Coupe brings it to another level.

EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale™ Review & #Giveaway


When you're really ready to start taking charge of what you're putting into your body, you start looking closely at portion sizing and exact measurements. It's easy to measure liquid, of course -- just pour it into a measuring cup! But how do you know exactly how much turkey you're putting on your sandwich? Or how much fruit you're having for your snack? You need a great kitchen scale! I actually weigh in on an EatSmart bathroom scale, so when I needed to get a kitchen scale, I knew where to look! EatSmart Products has introduced a new kitchen scale that I've totally fallen in love with. … [Read more...]
