Schwinn Dart Boys’ Bike


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...]

Our Generation Arabian Horse


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...]

Our Generation: Saddle-Up Stable


Disclosure: The stable featured below was provided compliments of Our Generation. I have recently begun really trying to encourage Carlee to use her imagination. I felt like the only things she was interested in involved some sort of screen and I wanted her to have the memories of make believe that my childhood was filled with. One way I have seen her imagination burst to life is with her new found love of dolls. Carlee almost always has a doll with her and whenever she has a friend come over, I find them playing dolls together. Some days their dolls are princesses, some days they are teachers. Most recently they have been champion horse riders!! Carlee asked me a few weeks ago for a stable for her dolls horse and foal to sleep in. I helped her make a makeshift one with a big cardboard box, she played with it for hours but because it … [Read more...]
