Built in Indoor Playhouse

indoor playhouse built in

I am lucky that one of my good friends built a house up the street from us.  And that she does hair for a living.  So we decided to make a little trade--I would help her with DIY projects and she would do my hair for free.  Win win!  Our first DIY project turned out so stinkin' adorable that I had to share it--it's a built in Indoor Playhouse! Isn't that amazing?!  First of all, I take zero credit for the amazing paint job.  That tree and … [Read more...]

Disney Side Cars Party

I got to host a Disney Side Cars party last month for my four-year-old and some of his friends and it was so cute and fun.  I was sent a huge box of party supplies (and for the life of me I can't find that pic) but it was chock-full of awesome stuff.  Everything Cars related and Mickey Mouse and just swag, baby. Disney Side parties are easy to host.  The kits come with invitations, decorations, games, party favors.  Everything but the … [Read more...]

Dash and Dot Robots Review

My kids got the Dash and Dot Robots for Christmas and it's been a big hit!  (Read this introductory post to refresh your memory about them.)  So far, it's kind of like having a pet.  Only way easier to take care of!  But it's been kind of like training a dog to do tricks. I took some videos so you can see just exactly what we've been doing... This toy is such a great toy for teaching kids to learn how to program and code.  It's a … [Read more...]

A Child’s First Phone

This post is sponsored by Tracfone, all opinions are my own. There was a day when my six year old boy walked over to his friend's house, just around the corner, by himself.  When it was time to come home, I texted my friend to send him home.  He didn't show up.  I walked around the entire neighborhood searching for him.  Finally I went home and he was there.  He had stopped at another friend's house which caused him to be late.  This was a … [Read more...]

Getting a Flu Shot

IMG_0057

'Tis the season of getting sick.  I feel like I've been struggling with some sort of sniffles/sore throat for the last month!  And especially when you have little kids around you, they bring home everything and just spread it around.  And last week my daughter was throwing up so much she ended up having to go to the hospital to get an IV.  I did not want anyone else to get that sick or get the flu, so I decided it was time for us all to get our … [Read more...]
