Daddy’s Natural Skin Care Products


I'm always looking for products that are made with natural ingredients, especially when it comes to skin care. When I first heard about the Daddy's Natural Skin Care line I was excited to learn that their products are hypoallergenic, dye-free, toxin-free and as the name suggests, made with natural ingredients. We received two products to try out, Daddy's Sunscreen Lotion (which is unfortunately no longer available) and Daddy's Natural Bug Spray. Both of these items have been great for throwing in my purse or a backpack as we head out to enjoy summer activities with the kids. ... ...continue reading

FuzzyHeads Red Randy Plush Toy Pillow {Giveaway}


Luke and I recently received Fuzzy: Red Randy from the folks over at FuzzyHeads for our honest review. You, like me when Erin first asked me to do this review, may be wondering what exactly is a FuzzyHead. It's one of the softest and squishiest plush toy pillows around! I love the simplicity of the construction and the sweet happiness expressed on the cute face. FuzzyHeads offers 3 sizes of their signature pillow: Fuzzys are approximately 16" tall x 4" in diameter; Big Fuzzys are approximately 24" tall x 6 inches in diameter; and Lil' Fuzzys are 9" tall x 3" in diameter.

CanvasHQ Custom Canvas Artwork {Giveaway}


In our home the walls are filled with photos of our family-- many of which are printed on canvases. I love that canvas prints take an ordinary photo and transform it to a piece of art that can stand alone on the wall without a frame. I've ordered from several different companies over the past few years but was recently given the opportunity to place my first order from CanvasHQ. The ordering process was very simple and the website was easy to navigate. I uploaded a photo of the girls and selected the orientation (portrait) and size of the canvas (11x14). I then was able to choose from ... ...continue reading

NEW Play-Doh Book Series {Giveaway}


My mind was instantly flooded with memories from my own childhood the moment I opened Luke's very first can of Play-Doh. The unmistakable scent of that bright squishy stuff will always be linked to happy times spent at the kitchen table creating all sorts of crazy creatures with my sisters. Thanks to Silver Dolphin Books, Luke and I had a thoroughly enjoyable time reviewing 3 NEW series of books (7 books total!) that incorporate Play-Doh. The first 2 books we looked through were Old MacDonald Had a Farm and The Wheels on the Bus (Play-Doh: Sound Series). These books were instant favorites ... ...continue reading

UV Skinz: UV Protective Swimwear for Kids


With summer in full swing, we've been enjoying a lot of time outside with the girls. Between trips to the pool and lake, running through the sprinkler and splashing at the water table, the girls have spent many hours enjoying the summer sun and cooling off in the water. Ryan and I are very cautious when it comes to the girls' exposure to UV rays and like to dress them in UV protective swim wear. Last year Clara wore her UV Skinz swim shirt all summer long. She has since outgrown it and handed it down to Adele (and it still looks brand new), so we knew we needed to get her a replacement. We ... ...continue reading
