KidCo TravelPod (08/15)

IMG_0391

Disclosure: The TravelPod featured below was provided compliments of KidCo. One thing I have learned living in an RV is just because I don't have a ton of space, does not mean I have to sacrifice quality and comfort when it comes to baby gear. There are so many different baby gear products on the market made for small spaces and the KidCo TravelPod is currently one of our favorites. The TravelPod is one of the lightest play yards I have ever used, at just over 10lbs. It is recommended for children up to three years of age, or 37 inches. I found the sleep area to be larger than normal, and appreciated that I could use a normal pack and play sheet on the bottom. It fit in our large bunk room no problem. The mesh sides kept airflow going and allowed me to see Caleb from all sides. It also allows him to see out all sides, which keeps him … [Read more...]

Disclosure: This post brought to you by LBox. I realized at the start of this summer that Ethan would need a new bike. His 16 inch bike, that came with training wheels had served him well for a few years and was really showing it's age from all the spills he took learning to ride. So him and I ventured out together to find the perfect one for him that was affordable, stylish and reliable. I knew for sure we wanted a Schwinn. Schwinn was established in 1895 and is America’s oldest bike brand, I even owned one when I was a child. Plus they offer a limited lifetime warranty for as long as you own the bike. Our local Walmart has a pretty huge bike section. The first, and only bike Ethan tried was the 20 inch Schwinn Dart. He fit on it like a glove and I was overly impressed with the price tag (only $98.87!) The Dart features both hand … [Read more...]

Disclosure: This post brought to you by Keter! Spring is here mommas and you know what that means! Time to clean, organize and declutter! Here are a few of the things I plan do to this year to make spring cleaning a bit easier for me this year. Make A List: I find that if I make a list and then actually stick to it I get way more done. When we put away the Christmas decorations I always take note of what needs to come out of our storage room, what needs to be sold at a yard sale and what can be donated. When spring cleaning starts I simply find what's on the list and take care of it! Baskets, Bins and Buckets: Theres no better way to organize stuff inside your home than the three B's! I plan to buy a ton of bins and organize all the kids clothes by size so when the next child fits that size I can just pull the bin out and I have … [Read more...]

Disclosure: The horse below was sent compliments of Our Generation. Carlee got her first 'big girl' doll last Christmas. Since then we have slowly been adding to her collection. Most recently, a horse and stable. We wanted quality and affordability, so we turned to Our Generation. The Our Generation Arabian Horse is the perfect pet and companion for her doll! The Arabian Horse is the perfect addition to any 18 inch doll collectors collection. In the box along with the horse you get a saddle, a bridle, a horse blanket, a saddle pad, a brush, a grooming mitten, a box of horse treats in a box, a bag of horse treats and a horse show ribbon which makes pretend play even easier! I found that all the accessories were easy to use and high quality, which I honestly didn't expect. Even my 6 year old was able to easily get them on and off with … [Read more...]
