Puzzle Photo Frames Gift & Giveaway!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Personal Creations. As Moms and Dads get older, I feel like they get harder and harder to give meaningful gifts to.  They always seem to have everything they want, and things like movies or lotion sometimes feel lame.  When giving to parents, you just really want to give them something that demonstrates your love for them and shows them their life and accomplishments.  For most people, … [Read more...]

Father’s Day Basket Giveaway

Father's Day is less than a week away and I always have a hard time thinking of things for my dad and husband.  I recently saw a Jimmy Fallon where he mentioned how Mother's Day is when everyone spends hundreds of dollars on their moms and Father's Day is 10 minutes looking in the junk drawer for a gift.  That's kinda true, though right?Fathers do so much and work so hard, they deserve to have an awesome gift.  And the truth is that the media … [Read more...]

PERK Vent Wraps Air Freshener Giveaway

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PERK for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Life with kids is pretty...hmm. Stinky? Yes. Very stinky, at times.

Huggies Diaper Donations

This post is sponsored by Huggies and MomitForward.  All opinions are 100% mine. Babies need diapers.  Kids need diapers.  Diapers are, and have been, a daily part of my life for the last five years.  And I think it's something I've taken for granted...the ability to afford diapers and to always be able to diaper my kids.  Did you know that 6 million American kids live in poverty?  Did you know that babies are required to have disposable … [Read more...]

Albion Fit $50 Giveaway

albion fit athletic wear

When I first started running, I would wear old tee-shirts and some running tights.  I knew there were better options for tops for running, but I didn't really want to spend the money.  So when Albion Fit contacted me to try out some of their fitness clothes, it seemed like the perfect time.  I had a fun time picking out my outfit since pretty much everything on their site is really cute. I did not have as much fun taking pictures of myself … [Read more...]
