Bird Bouncing Blast {Hasbro Review & Giveaway}

Hasbro is at it again with a fun new game that's a bird bouncing blast! We were excited to receive the new Angry Birds Star Wars Millennium Falcon Bounce Game free for the purpose of review. I wasn't sure at first if the Booper would show much interest in this game since he hasn't had any experience playing any of the Angry Bird apps, but I should have never doubted. He loved this.

It's A Puzzle.

Today, The Education Center where I volunteer hosted a public event for Autism Awareness. I was able to attend with the Booper in tow. I didn't really know what to expect since I've learned a little about Autism and I've been trying to read as much as possible on the subject just to gain the knowledge and help myself gain understanding. Thankfully, the Booper slept through half of the meeting.

Robby Wash Laundry Ball {review and giveaway}

I received this product free for the purpose of review, all views and opinions are my own honest evaluations. See Disclosure.
The never ending battle.
It's a never ending battle to try and beat the piles of dirty laundry in my house. I just try to stay one step ahead of the game. I rarely get the feeling of being caught up with my family's laundry. I laugh when I hear people talk about laundry day, because in our house that's every day. With all the clothes I wash every week we breeze through a bottle of detergent like nothing. When Oransi contacted me about reviewing one of their products I jumped at the chance to review the Robby Wash Laundry Ball.

I received this book free for the purpose of review all views and opinions are my own honest evaluations. See Disclosure.
I love finding new children's books that have a purpose. Reading to the Booper is always fun, but when the book engages him I go into "teacher mode" where I get all excited about teaching him new concepts. The Booper has been excited about letters and the alphabet for a while now, and when we pulled out this new book from the package he was excited to read Alphabet Anatomy:Meet the Capital Letters by Linda Jones.

Britax Carseats {an overview}

Britax Pinnacle 90

So before I entered parenthood I was a loving aunt, but I never really gave much thought to child safety seats. They were just what my niece and nephew had to sit in during our car rides. I had a booster for my niece and we would have to switch out the seat for my nephew. A funny but true story. Before having the Booper I had free time, so I called my sister and made plans to pick up my niece and nephew for a fun day out. I arrived to pick them up and my sister helped me get them loaded into my car. She wanted to make sure the car seat was installed properly for my nephew so she was the one to buckle him in. Everything was great. I got the kids out we went to eat lunch at a place where they could play for a while. When we were finished eating we all walked back to my car. My niece was big enough to get in and buckle up on her own. I walked around to help my nephew get into his car seat. I realized this was the first time I had ever been the one to buckle him in. His car seat buckle was like brain teaser puzzle the interlocking pieces had to fit perfectly together or you couldn't snap the buckle. I was completely lost. My niece tried helping... my nephew even tried his luck interlocking the pieces, finally I had to call my sister and have her try to talk me through it. I thought to myself, "Surely all car seats aren't this complicated!", and thankfully they are not!

A Clean Smile! {Review and Giveaway}

I received ORA MD Free for the purpose of review. All views and opinions are my own honest evaluations. See Disclosure.

When I was a child I was terrible about brushing my teeth, and flossing well it just didn't happen. I was blessed to not have many problems with my teeth before I started to care. My parents thought it was a good idea that I get braces to help straighten out my smile when I was 15 years old. I was never thrilled about the idea, but it helped me start to really brush well as I had to visit the dentist more often. Never wanting to be the girl with green stuff sticking out of my brackets I learned the value of flossing on a regular basis. Plus it's not cool to smile to show off your new color of bands and have major plaque and tarter build up...gross! Now that I'm an adult my dental hygiene routine is a no-brainer besides the best way for the Booper to learn is by my example. The great people at Trusted Health Products reached out to me to review their product Ora MD, I wondered how one all-natural product could replace toothpaste and mouthwash so I put Ora MD to the test to find out.
