Monster Trucks from Toy State

When it comes to trucks and cars, my kids can’t get enough of them. Between all three boys, they have more things with wheels than I knew could exist in one house. And just when I think they have just about everything, Toy State never fails to surprise me. They have hundreds of vehicles with unique features that can create hours of entertainment for both kids and adults alike. Their Road Rippers collection now has Monster Trucks to add their product line.

How to Make Potatoes in the Microwave in 10 Minutes

I enjoy preparing a homemade meal for my family as often as possible. It can be time consuming, but it’s very rewarding to me. However, there are those days where nothing seems to go right, I lose track of time, or we are running errands all day. Then the next thing I know, dinner needs to get on the table. What can I do? What can I make? I am continuously trying to find ways and recipes to simply my kitchen to make things easier on me and is still healthier for my family.

How to use the Walgreens Mobile App to Shop from Home #CBias #HappyHealthy

Before I had kids, and even when I just had one, I would go the store and run errands almost daily. Now that I have three little guys, ages three and under, it isn’t that easy to get out of the house. Running to the store to pick up a few things just doesn’t happen anymore. I’ve had to change the way I shop and stock up on everyday products to make it easier for my family and me. I have been shopping online more frequently and more recently from my phone via apps such as the Walgreens Mobile App. The ease of the app can make a world of difference at the end of a long day.

Old Navy Kids and Baby Sale

I have to admit, when it comes to buying clothes for my sons, I may have a bit of a shopping problem. I love browsing the racks and finding cute little outfits and awesome sales. When I heard about Old Navy’s Kids & Baby Sale, I couldn’t wait to check it out. My two and three year old are in desperate need of some new clothes since they are rapidly growing into little men. So yesterday, I took my three year old to my local Old Navy store to let him pick out some new clothes for him and his brothers. Giveaway

ReStockIt Review

We moved into our house just over a year ago. I thought that starting with all white walls and a blank slate would make decorating the house easier. Well, I was wrong. More wrong that I ever thought I would be. We purchased all new furniture and painted the living room almost immediately. It still took us a few months to start hanging pictures and decor on the walls. Next we painted the laundry room and then it took almost a year to decide on a paint color for the kitchen (we still have yet to agree on back splash tiles). Last week we finally painted the dining room and hung up some artwork (my favorite room so far because we painted it dark red with a wine theme). So on the main floor, that leaves the office and the entryway. I have been really trying to kick it in high gear to get the office project started because I work on the computer every day, so I want the room to be inviting and inspiring. It is also the first room you see when you come into our house.
