In The Garage With #DawnBeyondTheSink

This post is part of a Double Duty Divas campaign, all views and opinions are my own. See Disclosure. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
I've been a long time fan of Dawn dish washing liquid. My mom always used Dawn when I was growing up and though I hate washing dishes I loved how many bubbles Dawn would make. Plus it was cool how long the soap would continue to work. Now at my own home we've used dawn to clean things around our house and it always works well, but recently I took Dawn Beyond The Sink and tried using it's grease cutting power on some projects in our garage.

"I received this item free in exchange for my honest opinion, all views and opinions are my own."

Jif To Go Dippers Makes An Easy After School Snack

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Jif To Go Dippers. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating.
I get grouchy when I'm hungry. There just comes a certain time when I need to eat or my mood is affected. The Booper is no different kids can get grouchy when they're hungry and it seems in our house the worst timing is while I'm actually making supper. Anyone else have that problem? I'm standing at the stove and he walks in asking for food and the thirty minute wait for food is just too long. I need something fast for him and something handy so I can finish what I'm doing. I reach for the new Jif To Go Dippers. These handy packs are great for on the go, but also for those moments when if I don't feed him right then both of our moods are going to change. 

October Fun: Decorating With Pumpkins

This post is sponsored by Coupons.com, all views and opinions are my own. See Disclosure.
Fall is one of my favorite times during the year, I love all the fall colors and decorating during this time is so much fun. The Booper and I have been having a blast decorating together. I call him my Pumpkin head kid. Have you ever called your kids your pumpkins? I used to always call my niece and nephew pumpkin heads as a term of endearment. I just love their round faces so much and there's something about pumpkins that makes me so happy. Around our house we don't necessarily celebrate Halloween in the way some people do. We do dress up, and we do sit on our porch and pass out candy but I don't really buy into all the creepy parts of the celebration. We just decorate for fall so that even after October thirty-first our decor can stay up. How do you decorate for Halloween? Would $3000 help you buy all the supplies you would need?

When invited to check out all the toys at Walmart's Toyland we couldn't resist the chance to discover some new toys. My faithful sidekick the Booper was of course with me as usual.

There's No Shame When You #DropYourPants For #Underwareness

Many thanks to Depend for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging people to #dropyourpants for #underwareness. See Disclosure.
Being in my early thirties I experienced bladder leakage back when I was pregnant with the Booper. In my last trimester I joked that there wasn't any room left for my bladder he was taking up all the space. Laughing or sneezing suddenly gave me a new fear that I might lose control of my bladder. This is something I would usually only talk about with close friends, so pull up a chair we're about to become friends today! As many of you might know, as a child I suffered from a kidney disease that had many symptoms one of them happened to be loss of bladder control. I remembered thinking I couldn't wait for the day when I would grow out of that issue. When it started happening again while I was pregnant I realized that people of all ages can lose control of their bladder for so many different reasons, but it's nothing to be ashamed of. Plus- there's some really easy solutions to keep from having an embarrassing moment.
