Add a Burn-Proof Grip to Pots and Lids with sugru

sugru silicone for pot lids

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of sugru. The other day, I was making blondies.  I was making them the traditional way, wherein you stir brown sugar and melting butter over a hot pot on the stove.  I also have one of those smooth electric top stoves which are very handy to clean, but not very handy at keeping a pot in place.  If you stir food in a pot, many times the pot will spin around with the spoon.  So I have to keep one … [Read more...]

My Trip to Leapfrog

I've been working with Leapfrog for a couple of years now.  We love their products and have enjoyed reviewing them.  So I was super excited when Leapfrog invited me and four other bloggers out to visit their headquarters in San Francisco!  It was my first official 'business' trip (if you don't count blog conferences) and I felt so grown up.  It was awesome to fly on a plane without three wild children to entertain.  It was awesome to only have to … [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. In my house, I have to have those plug-in scented fresheners at all times. So when I got the chance to try out PERK Vent Wrap as a car air freshener, I was intrigued. I'd seen commercials for all new sorts of car air fresheners and none of them really appealed to me, … [Read more...]

Yoplait Greek VS Chobani

yoplait vs chobani_2

I'm a Greek Yogurt fan.  I don't love regular yogurt but Greek yogurt is thick and creamy and full of protein, so it's a winner.  But nowadays there are lots of different brands and varieties and it can be easy to get stuck in a rut picking the same brand.  There might be a better one out there and you would never even know! So I took the Yoplait Greek VS Chobani taste-off challenge to see which one was better.  I have tasted several Chobani … [Read more...]

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of VTech Communications for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Oh, Winter.  I love the beautiful snow and the holidays but one thing I do NOT love is illness.  We have all been cycling through cold after cold and I'm so tired of it.  But the thing that I hate the most is when my littles get sick.  It's so hard to listen to them coughing and crying at night because they feel so crummy. I … [Read more...]

Merry LEGO Christmas!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of LEGO for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. When you are a mother of little boys, LEGOs are inevitable.  I don't know one little boy who doesn't love LEGOs.  My own kids play with them and already own WAY too many.  And on top of that, there's the LEGO tv shows, video games, and so much more.  One of my favorite LEGO things is the website.  They have tons of free games and activities … [Read more...]

Weeknight Meal Planning with Emeals

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and eMeals all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #eMealstotheresuce http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO. I sometimes ask people this question, "If you could choose between a chef and a maid, which would you choose?"  And while most people answer 'maid', I think that ultimately I would choose a chef.  It's not that I hate cooking, but I hate cooking at the time of day … [Read more...]
