Perfect Gift Exchange Gift Idea {$100 Gift Card Giveaway}

I love the holidays and finding the perfect gift that will make someone smile. Back when I was in the work force we would do gift exchanges or I would simply buy small gifts to give out to my coworkers. It was a nice thing to do, but I just loved seeing their smiles when they received the gift. My favorite type of gift to give is something that will be used. When I was a cashier I purchased the small bottles of hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works for all the other cashiers, then I just tied a simple tag with a note and signed my name. I placed them all in a basket and set them at our front desk that way everyone on all the shifts could grab one. During the cold and flu season it was the most thoughtful and useful gift,  yet so small and inexpensive! I had no idea how much that little act of kindness would mean to everyone I worked with. One of my coworkers actually cried when she picked out a bottle from the basket! Even the guys were happy to get the hand sanitizers, everyone likes to have clean hands and smell fresh. So many great gift ideas at Bath & Body Works, check them out and enter below for a $100 Gift Card!

My Holiday Fashion Wishes Come True With Lane Bryant

This post is sponsored by Lane Bryant. All views and opinions expressed here are my own.
This year is just like every other year I listen to my son, my niece and my nephew as they all spout off their holiday wish lists with a smile. I remember being young and wanting all the toys, games and craft kits I would see on commercials. Now that I'm an adult my holiday wish list is simple. I want the things around me to make my life better, more organized, less stress, with no fuss. When it comes to my fashion sense I'm all over the place. One thing that keeps my clothing style centered is I like to be comfortable and hope to wear styles that flatter my shape. Which is exactly why I love shopping for myself at Lane Bryant. This year I've made my own holiday wish list, perhaps you'll like something I'm hoping for too? Check out some great gift ideas from Lane Bryant below, plus enter for a Lane Bryant Gift Card!

I love watching the kids all open their gifts, but just to see them play together is fun too.

Bring Christmas Cheer With Books From National Geographic Kids

I received the below mentioned titles in exchange for this post. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 

Reading is great for the brain at any age, but I love how well the Booper can retain more of what he reads. Getting his hands on books that teach him about science and mechanics is really important to me, so I love National Geographic Kids. He is so interested in learning how everything works, and honestly I don't always know the answer to his questions. Having a book to that answers his questions is great, but the pictures inside National Geographic Kids books actually show him things he might not get to see otherwise.

Create A Relaxing Space For Your Child With Brentwood Home

I received the products mentioned below in exchange for this post. All views and opinions are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
Can you believe we're already so close to another new year? Time really flies and life can seem to move too fast at times, so it's great to slow things down and relax. Children need to have time to relax as well, and creating a special place just for them to be comfortable also benefits their well being. The Booper is now in the first grade and learning to read longer stories. He's started to ask for quiet time to read on his own which as a parent makes me excited. I always try to encourage him to take time to read for enjoyment not just his school work. As a way to spark his excitement for reading we created a nice reading nook for him using the lush products from Brentwood Home.

What Moms Really Want: A Luvs Invitation & Giveaway

This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs.  I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.
You've got to hand it to moms they work long hours without breaks and can give everything of themselves for the little ones they love. Did you know nearly 2 in 3 moms have never taken a day completely to themselves? Remembering when the Booper was little, I felt had to do everything for him. He was our first baby and all, but I truly loved just being the one to take care of him. As time marches on I'm learning more and more that I can take a break for myself every once in awhile and still be a great mom. I love being a mom. Also, I love coffee, watching suspenseful movies, looooong uninterrupted showers, hanging out with my adult friends (talking about our kids mostly), reading books without pictures, and not having to share the chocolate! What do you love? Luvs wants to know what makes you smile. They're opening the #WhatULuv conversation with a fun Twitter Party in November. Scroll down to learn more about the party and RSVP, plus grab your entries for a Luvs Prize Package here at The Mommy Island!

5 Tips For Making Holiday House Guests Feel Welcome In Your Home

I received product from Spectrum in exchange for this post, all views and opinions are my own. 
Have you ever had that uncertain feeling of traveling somewhere to stay with family you didn't know very well? I love to travel, but being unsure of where you'll be laying your head at night when you arrive can make you feel a bit uneasy. Before we had kids my husband was in a Christian band, so we would travel to play at different churches. Members of the churches where they played would invite us to stay in their homes. We had such pleasant experiences because we had some really great hosts. A great host is someone who anticipates your needs. Isn't it such a great feeling to know someone put thought and care into your visit? I appreciate being pampered by the little things when I'm a guest in someone's home, so I try to do the same for our house guests. Here's just a few of my simple ideas. Perhaps you could add some to the list? Feel free to share your ideas in the comments!

Of all the questions, kids always seem to ask about using the toilet in space. I know the Booper has asked me that question before among several other funny questions about astronauts.

Sweet Holiday Memories With Christmas Forest

I received the product mentioned below in exchange for this post, all views are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
My Sweet Holiday Memory
Isn't it strange how a certain scent can spark a memory and cause us to feel all sorts of emotions and take our mind right back to a time and place? I'm blessed to say my childhood was full of happy times so now my memories of that time make me happy especially when I think of Christmas. I grew up living about four miles outside of our small city, and it was a wonderful place to live. Just down the road from our home was a Christmas tree farm where they grew many different types of pine trees that would later be harvested for Christmas trees. It was our family tradition for my dad to take my sister and I to go pick out our tree. We didn't have far to go, so mom would get the living room ready and she always had hot chocolate waiting when we got back. I remember a couple of times we came home with a ginormous tree my mom would roll her eyes at my dad as he would say, "it looked shorter outside" and we would all laugh. Sometimes we would pop popcorn to string and hang as a garland on our tree or we might just hang our ornaments, but every year our home would be full of the fresh aroma of pine. A time or two my mom asked my dad to also pick out a fresh pine wreath to hang outside and my dad would ask the farmers which wreath was freshly made.

Create Treasured Season's Greetings With Snapfish

This post is sponsored by Coupons.com. All opinions shared here are my own.
Silly moments in time captured by a photograph are a thing to treasure. Living several states away from my husband's side of the family we love to stay in touch with them on social media, however we miss the personal contact. With our four nieces growing up so far away we love to hear from them at any time. There's nothing quite like receiving an unexpected piece of snail mail from someone you love especially when you open that envelope to see their smiling face.

Bundle Up For Outdoor Play With Gear From Sierra Trading Post

This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.
Winter is coming! I have my favorite parts of every season, and for winter I love to play outside with the Booper. He is such an active little boy and needs to get his energy out. Playing outdoors is vitally important for every child. Getting to play outside is a great way for kids to reduce stress and get their natural source of Vitamin D. A child's need for outdoor play doesn't change just because the seasons have changed, so you have to bundle them up against the elements with quality winter gear. If your child is growing as fast as mine, you're probably needing to update their winter coat. Sierra Trading Post is a great place to buy their cold weather gear. Check out their current shipping deal and enter a $250 giveaway below.

Let Sleeping Babies Stay Asleep With TempTraq

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of TempTraq for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

One evening not too long ago our baby girl started acting strange. She was sitting still. Very unusual behavior for our one year old. She never seems to stop moving, so when she said "UP!" so my husband would pick up and set her on the couch with him I figured she would want right back down. That's a fun game she likes to play, up and down, up and down...all evening. However, on that particular night she sat next to her daddy and didn't move. She leaned into him and within minutes she dozed off to sleep. I walked into the room and was commenting on how sweet she looked and my husband didn't return my smiles, he looked concerned. "She feels really hot." he said while feeling her forehead. "A fever?" I asked, immediately walking over to feel her sweet face for myself. Before my hand even touched her skin I could feel the heat radiating from her skin. Another fever.

Think Inside The Box Party Fun With Celebration By Frey And Sixlets

Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.
Happy Fall! I'm so excited to see the leaves just starting to change near our house. I love all the colors of Fall, they're really my favorite. For some reason I've always love shades of brown and green so watching the leaves change makes me happy. Being that it's October you might be thinking of Halloween and trick or treaters. We get lots of trick or treaters where we live, and when I'm not out walking the neighborhood with the Booper I love to pass out treats. I love coming up with crafty ideas for the kids, and this year I was thinking inside the box.

Toilet Training Made Easy With #PampersEasyUps

This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Pampers Easy Ups.
 I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.
I've been told potty training boys vs potty training girls is very different. We aren't ready for the potty training stage yet with my daughter, but my son took to it easily once he was on board with it. It took him a while to want to try, but these new styles of Easy Ups from Pampers would have been a huge help back then. He absolutely loved Thomas and all things trains, so the designs definitely catch the eye of little boys who love everything with wheels like my nephew. My nephew is two and a half, and all boy. Like most two year olds he is very busy. When it comes to potty training, he needed training underwear that won't slow him down.

Peppa Pig Sunny Vacation DVD Giveaway

I received the below mentioned title in exchange for this post. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
I'm still in shock that Summer is closing and it's time for Fall. Even though where we live we've already been back to school for several weeks. I'm struggling to get into the groove, because I want to hang on to the fun we had over the break. Peppa Pig is a family favorite in our house. The Booper watches occasionally but Peppa is the first show our little miss ever showed any interest in watching. Even at just eleven months old our baby girl will laugh at the jokes on Peppa Pig, and any time she hears Peppa giggle and snort she wrinkles her nose and laughs too. Peppa's laughter and snorting is a bit contagious. I find myself repeating, "I'm Peppa Pig, SNORT!" randomly after the kids have been watching.
