Staying Warm And Showing Our #DisneySide

I received materials used for our party in exchange for this post. All views and opinions and experiences are my own. 
When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade, and when life gives you buckets of snow you throw a #DisneySide party and celebrate a birthday! At least that's how it worked out for our family. My husband grew up in the northeast so he loves when we get some snow here in Indiana. The only problem is, that all that beautiful snow caused us to have to cancel the party we had planned for the Booper's birthday. We asked the Booper what his birthday wish was and he simply asked to go sledding at my parent's house and have an ice cream cake. Makes sense, right? It did to us! We grabbed our Disney CARS gear, packed our mittens, and off to grandma's house we went! Though only a few family members could come and join us, we celebrated the Booper turning five in zooming Disney style.

Time For Two: Our #BestOfValentine Date Night

I received a promotional item in exchange for this post. See Disclosure.
Hubby and I are now thirty-somethings with children, and I have to be honest... we don't get out much. Between finding a sitter to watch the Booper and our busy work schedules we rarely get a date night. Even a simple evening spent together isn't always possible, but this past weekend we were invited to have a date night in by Fox Insiders and The Best Of Me. We were able to enjoy our own #BestOfValentine date night at home.

The Mommy Island: Celebrating 3 Years With Heartfelt Thanks

Hi, in case you don't know me, my name is Becky. I'm the creator of this fun site for moms, caregivers and the young at heart. Though if I'm truly honest, I created this blog for myself. Three years ago while chatting with a friend about visiting some of our favorite blogs, the seed was planted in my mind to start my own. I jumped into the blogging world with both feet, and I've never looked back!

Spread The Love And #PutYourHeartToPaper With Hallmark

I received product in exchange for this post, all views and opinions are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prizing. 
As a young child with an undiagnosed kidney disease I spent a lot of time being sick and in bed. Even once we knew the source of my sickness I couldn't always avoid the symptoms and would end up in the hospital. As a kid there is nothing worse than being confined to a bed. My grandmother would spoil me with thoughtful prizes to keep my hands busy and help me fight off boredom while at the hospital. One of my favorite things she would bring was paper dolls! Not only did she bring me awesome paper dolls she would sit with me and cut them out. (Back in those days paper dolls had to be cut out.) When I would get too tired or too frustrated to use my scissors she would cut them all for me, because my grandmother is special like that. One time I remember being especially sick she had pre-cut the whole book of paper dolls and brought them to me in a fancy box. It's those amazing memories of happiness in a time of sickness that have made me who I am today. My grandmother knows how to put her heart to paper and she taught me well.

Handmade With Love From Janiebee

I received product in exchange for this post, all views and opinions are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prizing. 
Have you ever noticed how something handmade feels special? It's like you can feel the love of the person who crafted it. Our family's favorite blanket is a quilt pieced together by my grandmother with blocks that were embroidered by my great-grandmother. We've actually had times where my husband and I would play tug of war with that quilt because we both love how great it feels to curl up in it. My grandmother doesn't quilt like she used to since her hands aren't as steady now, but I still love the feel of anything handmade especially blankets! If you don't have a crafty person in your family finding something handmade for your child might be difficult. You're going to love learning about our sponsor for this event!
