Nancy Drew: Codes & Clues Nights At Ovations Brands' Restaurants {Giveaway}

I received product as compensation for this post. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
When I was about ten years old I struggled with finding things I enjoyed reading. My mom searched to find things that would grab my attention. One Saturday afternoon we were at a church book sale and my mom came across a box of old Nancy Drew books. She bought them for me, I looked at the tattered covers and sighed, little did I know those old Nancy Drew mysteries would ignite my passion for reading! To this day, I still prefer reading mysteries if I'm going to read fiction. It's exciting for me to see that Nancy Drew is still around for girls to enjoy and Ovation Brands' Restaurants are joining in the fun! Read more about the Nancy Drew: Codes and Clues nights and enter for a Nancy Drew prize package below.

Dress Up Your Spring Table With Dollar Tree

I received compensation for this post, all views are my own. This post may contain affiliate links. 
There are so many fabulous ideas out there for ways to celebrate the holidays on the cheap with Dollar Tree, but some of my favorite ideas are the ones you might use anytime. Recently, I was at a posh event that included a luncheon for bloggers. They had an amazing spread on each table featuring a cylinder salad. I had never eaten a cylinder salad before but the presentation was so elegant I wanted to recreate the experience at home. If you're planning to host a luncheon for friends or family then you'll love this idea - plus you'll appreciate how inexpensive it will be using Dollar Tree products!

Excitement For Young Readers {Little Fun Club Blog Tour}


I received a product in exchange for this post. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
The world opens up to a child when they learn to read or have an adult that reads to them. My son is now seven and learning to read. He struggles with reading so it has become a sore spot for him and at times he's lost his joy for reading at all. When he starts to show signs of being burnt out or frustrated I will take over and just let him follow along until his curiosity for the story builds back. He brings home his readers from school, but we like to pick books from his shelf at bedtime. I think it's great for him to have his own library to pull from and go back to when he wants to read a familiar story. I was excited to learn about Little Fun Club and receive a box of curated books selected just for him.

Autism Community Store $50 Giveaway

Did you know April is Autism Awareness Month? 
From time to time you'll see me posting about autism, learning abilities and anything education related. I come from a family of teachers and that instilled in me a passion for understanding how people learn. Because of that passion, I feel a personal responsibility to advocate for children and adults living with autism. There's a major shift in the discussion about autism as many are aware but few people understand. This month I hope to help others by sharing my compassion for families that are living with autism and to move past awareness and on to understanding. From the parents in my circles that have children with autism, I've learned it can be quite expensive buying all the products and services to benefit their child. As a parent,  I can relate to the struggle of working to give your child every resource available. That's why I joined up with a great group of bloggers by chipping in for a useful prize to support families living with autism.

Since April is World Autism Month, I’ve decided to #LightItUpBlue with Autism Speaks to increase understanding and awareness of autism. The issue is deeply personal to me as a mom of a child with autism. It’s highly likely that you know someone with autism too since the CDC estimates autism’s prevalence as 1 in every 68 children in the United States.
