My family and I received tickets to Nitro Circus in exchange for sharing this information and giveaway. All opinions are 100% our own.
Something exciting is coming our to city next week (June 21 and 22 to be exact) – Nitro Circus and the all-new Next Level Tour! Our Bigs have no idea what they’re in for next week when we go – but because they are very familiar with Nitro Circus, I think they will be quite happy with this surprise.
My family and I were invited to visit Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest for a weekend in exchange for our honest opinions. All opinions are 100% our own.
Ah, sweet summertime in Pittsburgh! For me, summers used to include camping in a tent at local campgrounds. Camping holds a special place in my heart (bugs and all) and I am so happy that my family is enjoying continuing the tradition. Truth be told, our stay at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park™ at Kozy Rest was more “glamping”, but it still got the ‘ol camping bug moving in us.

Recently, my husband came down with what I lovingly call the Man Cold and what he calls allergy season. No matter how careful I might have been to keep myself and the ‘lil Burghers away from the germs, I still needed to clean over and over just in case it was something we could catch. That’s when I learned about the NEW Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes with Ultra Strength Blue Fibers and got to cleaning everything in sight.
I was sent a Timolino Tazza mug in exchange for my honest opinions.
It’s a cool, rainy evening here and I’ve had my share of coffee and even tea to get me through the day. Usually as a mom of four I find my hot drinks a bit lukewarm. That’s not the case when I’m drinking from my Timolino Tazza mug as it is designed to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold! This tumbler comes from Timolino’s line of contemporary lifestyle drinkware and lived up to its reputation when I drank from it.
Verizon Tech provided me with products for the purpose of testing and sharing my experience. All opinions expressed in this post are 100% my own.
If you are planning a spring (or summer) getaway, what are you packing as you plan your travel adventure? I absolutely must pack technology even when vacations are a time to get away from it all. There’s always a plan to blog more (especially now that I have a second blog), so I do usually bring my computer, but the technology I must bring along is usually geared toward making the trip a bit more hassle-free and fun, bonus points if it’s an active trip!
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.
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.
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”.
