Not going to give mommy a smile, no matter what! Look at that determination. 
The beginning of this school year was rough for our little miss. At almost 3-years-old she thinks she's the big girl. The first few days of school as we dropped her brother off in front of the building there were a lot of tears as she cried to go to school with the other kids. I kept telling her she could go to school when she gets bigger, then we received the Teach My Preschooler Kit and we started to have "school time" at home. She was so excited to open the kit and do her school work.

Ignite Your Child's Passion For Literature With Audiobooks.com

I received compensation in exchange for this post. All views and opinions reflect those of my own. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
When we first enrolled our son in school he was full of excitement and passion for learning. He couldn't wait to join the other kids and our bedtime reading sessions were his favorite part of the day. As he entered Kindergarten his excitement started fading as his struggles to see the letters correctly became more evident. Unfortunately, he had someone at his school that was reinforcing his struggles instead of celebrating his successes. At the end of his first grade school year, we discovered he had been being bullied about his reading ability. To him, books became a thing of torture and ridicule. Even our story time was no longer fun for him. He would moan when he saw me looking at his bookshelf. It became my mission to ignite his joy for great books again. I started by just letting him pick any book that looked good to him, but the real game changer came when we discovered audiobooks. He listened to his first book using earbuds and he was hooked. He started discussing the storyline and characters with me and I could hear him laughing out loud while listening. His smile proved that the joy of a good book was back! We trade off between audiobooks and hard copies, but his confidence is building every day. I can't wait to see what stories he writes someday.

school shoes
There's something to be said for having happy feet. My husband has had two surgeries on his feet and he tells our son all the time to take good care of his feet. Wearing the proper shoes is not only great for your feet it can really help your overall mood. We found that the Booper was doing better in school on days when he wore a specific pair of shoes. When he wore other shoes he seemed to be having conduct issues and came home in a grouchy mood. The right shoes can make all the difference! As you shop for back to school gear for your children, don't forget to update their shoes for comfort and style and pediped shoes have both!

With our son being back in school it seems like we're flying through our peanut butter supply. I'm not sure what happens at school all day but he comes home ravenously hungry. Thank goodness we have some Pic's Peanut Butter to stop the hangry monster from roaring his mouth is too busy munching down a sandwich.

Being a parent is a full-time job and for me, it requires some caffeine to get moving in the morning. As we transition to our school schedule, I'm leaning on my coffee to help me get us all out the door on time.

We're in our second week of school. The Booper was not thrilled to go back, but he still loves shopping for supplies. It's funny how much of a difference a personalized lunch box can make! His school requires every individual supply to be labeled so we like to get sticker labels to make it simple. He has to keep shoes in his locker for gym class so they have a label. Scissors? Label. Pencils? Label. Backpack? Label. It's great being able to peel and stick labels on all his gear in just a few minutes of time, as a bonus he loves the cute designs. Helping him have every confidence on his first day of the third grade means everything to me! Check out the labels and all the back to school gear available at Stuck On You and find out why they love your unique name.

Gifts For Guys Made Easy With Happy Cards #PickUpHappy

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Tatu Digital Media. Views expressed here are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
It's crazy how fast time flies. We're already in August and since I finished my back to school shopping for our son, I've started thinking of holiday shopping. Having a gift closet with shelves high enough my kids can't see, I like to shop year-round for gifts. My kids are easy to buy for and I pick up things they'll like when they're on clearance. My mom and sister are also easy to buy gifts for, we all seem to like the same things. When it comes to buying gifts for my dad and husband the shopping inspiration comes to a halt. I rarely buy things ahead for them, I tend to grab something random last minute because I'm out of ideas. Now gift-buying for guys is easy since I discovered Happy Cards conveniently available at Kroger stores!

We have very limited space in our kitchen so I don't like having appliances that I'm not going to use more than once a year. When the opportunity came to try the Mealthy Multipot I thought here's your chance to see if it's worth its space and if it could live up to the hype. I jumped in, and here's what happened...

Some Like It Popped! Gary Poppins Popcorn Review

I received the product and compensation in exchange for this post. 
All views and opinions are my own. Sponsor is responsible for all aspects of the giveaway mentioned within this post. 
Summer break hasn't held much of a break for us this year. We have several major things going on in our family; we're house-hunting, we're renovating our current home, we've taken 4 trips so far, and I'm purging our house for a down-size. Being a child of the 80's I still do thing old-school and can't give up my pen and paper. I love having notebooks in my purse and I jot things down while I'm on the phone because if I don't I WILL forget! I've been engrossed in all of this planning and the constant movement of contractors and phone calls I have to grab my snacks on the go. We received The Best Of Gary Poppins Popcorn Variety 10-Pack conveniently packed in small bags ready to be opened and enjoyed (while I was waiting on-hold) or anytime! 

Gary Poppins Popcorn is handcrafted in small batches right here in the USA and packed fresh from the popper to be shipped. I could taste the freshness and really enjoyed trying each of the flavors included in the variety pack. Unfortunately, I couldn't keep my family from noticing the colorful bags of popcorn and I had to share. We each found our own favorite flavor so now we know what to order next. 
Time for some serious snacking. When I really want to spark my creative side I like to pull out my serious notebook and for some serious snacking I pulled out the White Cheddar Jalapeno popcorn. This batch of handcrafted popcorn had some serious kick! My husband and I both really liked this flavor I let him try a bite or two then I kept the bowl to myself. He's the one that likes to kick up the spices and pour on the hot sauce so I laughed at him when he reached for his water bottle. 
Don't mess with a classic. The Classic Cheddar flavor was loved by our whole family especially our kids. Both the Booper and Sassy Girl crave all things Cheese and this batch was a cheese lover's dream come true. Which reminds me of the delightfully crunchy Classic Caramel flavor. One of my favorites from when I was a kid. My mom used to make homemade caramel and drizzle over our freshly popped popcorn when we were bored with regular popcorn. Using sweet creamery butter and brown sugar the fine folks at Gary Poppins Popcorn have made this classic anything but boring! 
Double-up on delicious! When it's time to unwind from all our planning, phone calls and list-making I like to kick back and watch a good movie with some popcorn. Gary Poppins Popcorn is popped and ready to eat so there's no waiting for entertainment just open the bag and push play. Indulgent is the word I would use to describe the Caramel Cheddar Kettle flavor. It's like the power-house of popcorn giving you all your favorite flavors in one bag. Each bite offers a new mix of sweet and salty making it a crowd pleaser. 
Creamery Butter. This flavor actually surprised me the most. I fully expected to have a hand full of greasy butter after grabbing a bite, however, it was light and not greasy at all. The creamy butter flavor was there without the need to wash your hands between each bite. My daughter confiscated this bag from me so sadly I only took two bites before she said, "thanks mom" as if I had opened the bag just for her. 

Kettle Corn. The Booper took over the bag of this flavor and let me know it was, "the best." in his opinion. I dare not try to reach towards his bag as he's a ferocious snack machine. At 8-years-old his stomach seems to be a bottomless pit this summer. It was nice to see him snack on a bag of Gary Poppins popcorn knowing it's made with whole grain, non-GMO corn. 

I do like it popped, especially when it's popped by Gary Poppins! My family really enjoyed the flavors in The Best Of Gary Poppins Variety Pack, but next time I would like to try some of their other batches like the Coffee, Cinnamon, Kettle. I've never had coffee flavored popcorn before! 

Once a week, through August 31st, 2018, Gary Poppins will be giving away (1) The Best Of Gary Poppins Collection single serve 10-pack to one lucky winner. This variety pack contains 6 of our most popular flavors including, Caramel, Cheddar, Kettle and more! Increase your chances to win by liking them on social media and referring as many friends as possible to enter the contest. There is no limit to the number of referral entries, so tell everyone you know!

I'm always teasing my husband about not being a good multi-tasker. He is single-task oriented and laser-driven and I always have several things going at once. Yet I somehow always end up wishing for more time in my day for things I enjoy. June is Audiobook month and there's no better time to multi-task and listen to a great book with Audiobooks.com!

Get Your Kids Off The Couch With Laser X Micro Blasters!

I received products in exchange for this post. All views and opinions are my own. 
If there's one thing I can't stand hearing my 8-year-old say it's, "I'm bored." Hearing him whine about being bored literally makes my eye twitch. Now that school is out for summer break I've caught him on the couch vegging out with the tv when it's gorgeous outside. I won't have it. Growing up my mom never let us watch tv on a beautiful day we were sent outside to entertain ourselves and I want my kids to get outside and enjoy their time too. We recently received the Laser X Micro Blasters for review and we had a great time putting them to the test.

This year I decided I wouldn't make a resolution to lose weight or go on a diet, I just wanted to make small changes to help my overall health. As a long-time procrastinator, I kept putting off my health until the next day then that would turn into the next week. My biggest weakness has always been breakfast foods. I love biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, and donuts! All those greasy foods that were weighing me down and causing me to drag through my morning and day. Once I started my day with a bad choice it was so easy to just keep making poor choices throughout the rest of my day. I've found that when I start my day off with a good choice I tend to keep making better choices. Soon those good choices have turned into my morning routine, and man I've been feeling so much better!
