There is something incredibly special about the Mother’s Day gifting of hand-drawn cards and hand-picked flowers from my kids. And I am sure that my own Mom enjoyed these sentimental things, too.
Mother’s Day Gifting
As the kids get older, I know those sweet gifts will be received less and less. Mother’s Day gifting really changes through the years, even as a mom myself, I’m not great at remembering to pick up something nice for my mom and mom-in-love when their holiday comes around.
One of my mom’s most treasured pieces of jewelry is her mother’s ring. She has two, one for me/Greg/my brother and another for her grands. Both are stunning, so when US Family Guide asked if I’d be interested in working with Mama’s Jewelry to share their collection of mothers rings, I just had to say yes.
How can it be? Today is a big day for two ‘lil girls, our twins are three!
These girls have truly changed our lives, keeping us on our toes ever since the day they were born. Both bring so much love and joy to our family, it’s hard to imagine that three years ago we had no idea what we were in for.
We received a set of Eclipse Curtains in exchange for our honest review. All opinions, as always, are 100% our own.
When you have a house full of kids who are totally the younger sister from a certain movie about ice and sisterly love and they believe if the sun is up they are up…having reduced light and noise is a true blessing. The twins had been struggling with Daylight Savings Time when our package from Eclipse Curtains arrived with blackout panels for their room. Call it an early birthday present for dad and mom, these beauties have made a difference!
We were sent the Wise ‘Ol Owl Blackboard Calculator in exchange for our honest review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
Learning got a ‘lil more fun around here for Evan and the twins with the Wise ‘Ol Owl Blackboard Calculator from Singing Machine. With three different languages and the basic math functions, there are plenty of learning opportunities for my ‘lil ones.

On April 14, Pittsburgh will be welcoming Babies & Bumps for their fourth event for Pittsburgh parents with babies and bumps. The event will give parents time to get support and resources as you navigate the parenting life.
This post about British Soccer with Challenger Sports is one such post.
Do you remember how much fun Evan had at summer camp last year? He participated in British Soccer with Challenger Sports for a week-long soccer camp and the time has come to start thinking about registration again!
Disclaimer: I received product/service in exchange for this post about the Ripple safety device. All opinions are 100% my own.
When I first was told about the Ripple Safety Device, my mind went straight to where most of my focus has been lately – to running. I even blogged about it over on mrsgregwillis the other day with that exact focus. But in thinking more about it, Ripple isn’t just for keeping runners safe, it’s great for anyone who needs to feel safe and could be a great device to give your kids as you start letting them “have some wings”.
Parents – Date Night Alert: RENT is Coming to Pittsburgh! The Cultural Trust sent us details on this upcoming 20th Anniversary tour stop and as a couple who is all about embracing the 525,600 minutes we have been blessed with, we’re super excited to share the details with you!
In exchange for my honest opinions, the Twins were gifted a subscription to Hopster, a preschool learning and entertainment app. All opinions are 100% our own, as always.
Admittedly, when I first downloaded Hopster onto our iPad, I did so without the kids around and definitely spent some time diving into the games, shows, and songs. It was for research purposes, but it was also oh so fun! I felt comfortable adding this app to our home screen, a place where the Twins know to go for fun learning activities.
