Mommy and Me {May Flowers Giveaway}

Everyone loves their mom and always wants to find the best gift to make her feel loved and appreciated. These are the gifts I have found and would love to share with you. Spending time with the Booper is one of my greatest joys in life. I've always loved gardening especially planting flowers and watching them grow. Sharing this fun pastime with the Booper is a great way for us to be together and enjoy our beautiful garden. My gift ideas for this mother's day are all about enjoying gardening while having some fun Mommy and Me time! Special thanks to the sponsors for giving me these products for the purpose of honest review and for sponsoring this fabulous event.

Rescue Pest Control Takes The Sting Out Of Spring

There's nothing like enjoying the beautiful outdoors. Sometimes when I've had a busy or stressful week I just like to sit out on our front porch or sit on our back steps while the Booper plays in the yard. Occasionally I just close my eyes and listen to the sounds of our little town, and soak it all in. When I'm outside I understand I'm sharing the great outdoors, but if one thing can wreck my zen moment it's a buzzing bee or wasp. To be honest I'm really not scared of them for myself, but I don't want the Booper to get stung. I love finding simple solutions for common annoyances and Rescue! Pest Control has an easy solution for wasp infestations. I was happy they sent me their new Wasp Trapstik free for review, so I could share my honest opinions.

Much Needed Mom's Night Out From Purex

Getting together with friends hasn't been easy since graduating high school we all have busy lives. Since some of us became moms it's harder than ever to go on a girl's night out. Not all of my friends are moms but the ones who are understand it's not as easy as just deciding to go. Moms have to plan their adventures and being spontaneous is a thing of the past (at least for me). My BFF and I are planning a night out to go see a fun chick-flick and I can't wait. I've planned ahead and have arrangements for the Booper and hubby to have their own boys night in so I can "let my hair down" for one night of fun with friends. I'm so happy Purex recognized that moms need to have fun too. Purex is celebrating Mother's Day wants to offer you the chance to win a "Mom's Night Out" where you can enjoy a fun night with your friends.

Powerful Clean With ToiletTree Products

When we received this power toothbrush free for review, my husband was excited to brush his teeth and share his opinions. I have the opportunity to try lots of products but every once in a while there's something Jim really takes interest with and this Rechargeable Toothbrush from ToiletTree Products caught his eye. We are both coffee drinkers, but he definitely consumes more than I do since he always has a pot going at work. He needs a little extra help with cleaning away all the evidence of being a coffee lover.

Recently I was given the honor of being selected as part of a Eureka Power Preview Panel for their new vacuum the Eureka Airspeed All Floors.

Of course I couldn't wait to see how well this vacuum worked, and I was hopeful it would meet the challenge of cleaning our floors. With an active four year old and long haired black furbaby running around the house our floors create a special challenge.

Take A Deep Breath With Puritan's Pride Review and Giveaway

I received the below mentioned products free for the purpose of review, all views and opinions are my own honest evaluations. 
Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. See Disclosure.
During the month of April as the weather slowly starts to warm there are many allergy sufferers who are dreading the rise in pollen levels. I wouldn't necessarily consider myself to be someone who suffers from allergies, but had the occasional run in with what I would call seasonal allergies. I typically just sneeze more than usual which is a lot, and I might experience runny eyes. The biggest issue that bothers me is a stopped up nose. I hate feeling like I can't breathe. Since I was given several products from Puritan’s Pride® I've been putting them to the test, and I'm happy to share my thoughts with you.
