Wittlebee Monthly Kid’s Clothing Club Review

Sweet T is 100% girl so it's no surprise she's taken a recent interest in fashion. It kind of goes with the territory when you aren't even 2 years old and will sit for a professional pedicure and leave you jewelry on all day (she got all that girly fru-fru from her dad's sisters and mom, but I don't mind.) How does Wittlebee work? Fill Out … [Read More...]

Before Sweet T came along, grocery shopping was a little different. I actually took the time to stop at the kiosks, see what the attendants were cooking, sample the food, and maybe even try the recipe out for myself at home. Now that grocery shopping is a sprint to the checkout with a toddler in tow, I'm glad I took the time to discover this Publix … [Read More...]

One Step Ahead GoPod Portable Activity Center Giveaway – Ends 8/13

Winner: Linda T. "Wrangling" not one but two children is going to be a new experience for me! When Sweet T was little and I needed to go outdoors to garden or hang clothes on the line I'd often just lay out a blanket or activity center mat for her depending on her age at the time. This worked fine, but she grew bored around the scooting stage … [Read More...]

Top Secret Maternity #Giveaway – Ends 8/12

The great breastfeeding debate is probably here to stay. Breast milk vs. formula, nursing in public vs. private: it seems everyone has an opinion. I can honestly say I don't care what you do when it comes to feeding your child, but my personal preference is to nurse modestly in public. A tank (or singlet) from Top Secret Maternity will help me do … [Read More...]

BabyMamma Prenatal Vitamins Giveaway – Ends 8/10

Winner: Amanda A. Pregnant or not I've always had to be careful when taking vitamins. I still remember the horrible nausea that came at age 13 when I took a multivitamin while my breakfast was warming. Big mistake!

New York Style Bagel Crisps

I've enjoyed New York Style Bagel Crisps since I was a child. I can remember mom letting choose the flavor if I went shopping with her and I always picked Roasted Garlic! Some things never change and that is still my favorite flavor of New York Style Bagel Crisp. As an adult I've discovered hummus though and how yummy it can be with a bagel crisp. … [Read More...]

Winner: Beth R. In this age of early gender predictions and  4D ultrasounds, sometimes I feel like we're the only ones who aren't finding out the gender of our baby before the birth.
