10 Tips to Protect Your Travel Trailer

There’s nothing better than a little outdoor time with the family. Tenting with the kids is always a ton of fun, but at this age, having something a little more comfortable to sleep on is never a bad option. Of course, you can just sleep in the car, but that kind of ruins the experience.And sure, you could rent a cabin, but costs add up quickly. That leaves only one reasonable option — a travel trailer. Whether you already own one or are in the market for one, there is no denying that the stationary sleeper is a solid investment. But, in order to squeeze the maximum amount of value out of your camper, … [Read more...]

Magformers – My First 30 Set

This holiday season my daughter received her first set of Magformers, the My First 30 Set. The 30 piece set is a colorful plastic magnetic building set that is the perfect toy for anyone who loves to build. Even thought the set was for my daughter, both my children, ages 3 and 10, took to them instantly. The colorful illustrated instructions are very fun and easy to follow. In no time my children were building awesome 3-D designs like a castle, a ball, a puppy and a heart. Even my husband joined in on the fun! The set we purchased, Magformers My First 3D set, came with a spiral-bound book … [Read more...]

SharkBanz – The Magnetic Shark Deterrent

This winter, my family and I decided that we wanted to start a new hobby that we could do all together.  Outdoor adventure is more my style so I convinced the family that snorkeling would be worth a try. One weekend the five of us loaded up in the car and went to a local dive shop.  $700 later, we had all the gear we needed. It wasn't until we were half way home that I learned of my wife’s fear of sharks.  I did everything I could think of to get her to understand that shark attacks aren’t common and the chances of her getting eaten were pretty much less than the chances of her winning the lottery. … [Read more...]

Planetbox Rover Bento Lunchbox

Disclosure: The products pictured below were provided compliments of Planetbox. I have always been a nature loving, animal nurturing person ever since I was a little girl.  If I see trash outside I will pick it up and dispose of it.  At times I have even went as far as picking recyclables out of the trash container and putting them in the recycle container.   We have to care for this Earth, as we only have one.  There are no do-overs.  When packing my kids lunches for school it always bothered me all the plastic bags I would use for everything.  One bag for the sandwich, another for the fruit, another … [Read more...]

Yellowberry – The Perfect First Bra

Disclosure: The products below were provided compliments of Yellowberry. For me, there was a sad feeling that came over me when I realized my nine year old needed her first bra.  My baby was blossoming into a young lady and I wasn't ready for it.  I ignored it for awhile, she wore tanks with built in bras under her shirts and after a couple weeks we went bra shopping. I wasn't just searching for a bra, I was searching for the perfect first bra. After about an hour and a half of looking at different stores and trying to convince myself that what I saw on the racks was ok and what girls were wearing … [Read more...]

Crisp – Kitchen Tools For Healthy Eating

Disclosure: The products below were provided compliments of Crisp. I think we all want to be healthier, eat healthier, drink more water and exercise.  Lets face it, having a healthier lifestyle can be a challenge when you aren't prepped and prepared for it.  Otherwise you find yourself in the same grind of quick processed meals or fast food drive-thru.  Spending lots of time in the kitchen is few and far between for my family and is typically only done on weekends, if we have a spare one.  If I want healthy meals during the week some of my prep work is done Sundays. Luckily, there is a company called … [Read more...]
