Making Our Bunk Room Feel More Like Home

This post is sponsored by Dorel Home Products. All opinions and ideas are my own. #Mainstays #BelieveInSleep One of the main selling points of our camper was the bunk room. I loved that it had dual apposing slides and that each side had a pull out couch with a fold down bunk on top. I envisioned us as a family sitting back there watching a movie, three of us on each couch. That beautiful envisioned idea was crushed the first time we tried to watch a movie back there. Sun shone in through the windows and made the TV very hard to see and the couch was so uncomfortable that after about an hour sitting … [Read more...]

Willing – online legal will

Disclosure: The service below was provided compliments of Willing My husband and I have been putting off making a will for years. Mostly because well, I just didn't want to think about it.  Having to decide who gets what and who will take care of our children after we were gone was upsetting.  But, with being mid-thirties, owning our own home and having four children it was something that needed to be done sooner rather than later.  For those without a will the state in which you reside (for us Pennsylvania) will determine who gets what.  I am sure many of Americans, like us, are going without wills … [Read more...]

Are You Prepared For A Sick Kid During Vacation?

This post has been sponsored by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. All thoughts and reviews are my own. When I pack for summer road trip, sunscreen and snacks are at the top of my list.  I also have way more clothes than we could ever use, extra diapers and at the last minute I typically toss together a first aid kit- just in case.This summer, our very first vacation was less than stellar. The very first day my poor Ethan woke up with a stuffy nose, a sore head and a scratchy throat. At first I blamed on allergies. But by the third day, I realized he had a nasty, nasty cold. The poor kid was miserable, and my … [Read more...]

We can get so caught up in the advantages that we easily forget about the things we can encounter that aren't involved in traditional car-and-hotel travel. These issues can emerge as soon as you drive off the lot, and many of them … [Read more...]
