Cottonelle Moist Wipes Review + $1 coupon

I cannot tell you how many wipes that we go through in a given month. A lot, that’s all I know! While the kids use them when they go potty, I have also found myself using their wipes. Well, they aren’t flushable, so I started to look for a product that is flushable, as well […]

Infants and Children’s Tylenol Enhancements

Whether it is us adults that have a headache, or my kids have a fever, there’s one product that I have always trusted my family to and that’s Tylenol. When I saw that some Tylenol products were recalled, I was really interested as to why the brand was recalled. With any recall, I was happy […]

My affordable bathroom makeover with Dali Decals Modern Mosaics {Closed}

Wilton Luau Birthday Cake

Logitech Keyboard Case by ZAGG for iPad 2 & ZAGG Custom iPad 2 Skin

When it comes to media travels, I tote along my iPad everywhere that I go. For me, it’s easier than taking my bulky laptop. With my iPad, I have been pretty much just using my knee to prop it up so that I can type notes from conferences, but that was such a pain. I […]

The Rayovac home of technology and talking friends.

You may not realize how many things in your home are powered by batteries until you stop and look around. My kids have gaming devices, learning toys and even robots.

Really? You don’t think us bloggers are smart enough to figure this out? […]

Playroom Toy Organization

I have spent the last two days in our playroom getting it organized. I still have no idea how my own kids don’t know how to pick things up, even when the bins are clearly marked with visual images on each as to what’s inside. Let’s see how long this lasts. I have told the […]

POP Phone *Review*

When it comes to technology, I love everything in that field. I will admit when I saw one product, I had doubts about it. I know… I know… Never judge a book by the cover, right? If you have an iPhone, why would you need a telephone handset? I giggled at this, but when I […]

May: Better Hearing and Speech Month

Love the smiles; new OR old!

I am going through the things on our house, old and new, and have this mirror that I just pulled out of my downstairs bathroom. It has to be from the 1950’s, if not earlier. Yes, it is dirty, but it was pulled from our basement stash for our yard sale. Kambry had to make […]

Bed Frames to suit any room

We live in a 1900 home and upstairs, the rooms all have slanted ceilings so we always have a hard time finding furniture that fits just right in each room. In most homes, owners can simply go out to any furniture store, pick out that perfect bed set and go home with it. We can’t. […]

Yard sale for a purpose!

This is just a portion of the things that we have collected for our yard sale over the months. Thank goodness we have a large basement, garage and upstairs attic space. I am not sure when the sale will be, as I am still going through things. I haven’t even started tagging things yet! Last […]

We are having a yard sale!

I was scheduled to drive about 8 hours with a car load & trailer filled with things to donate for a yard sale fundraiser, but things fell through so I decided to just hold a yard sale myself! Last year, we raised over $1300 in just about 3 hours. I think this year, we will […]

simplehuman Fingerprint-Proof Butterfly Trash/Recycler

I travel quite a bit for my blog, media events and for family events. I used to carry around a camera bag, diaper bag, a purse and another bag that had some things in it for the kids. Really, 4 bags just for going to run errands? Sounds crazy, but yes. When I travel for […]
