Summer Fun With Name Your Tunes – Contest Closed

Summer is here and we're all trying to squeeze as much as we can into the 2 short months of freedom that we have.  Well, freedom that the kids have.  Somebody's gotta go to work.  All our weekends are booked up with road trips, camping, amusement parks and just about anything else we can find a slot for. Our family hasn't gotten to far just yet this summer.  With my return to work, and Daddies already busy schedule we're pulling at straws … [Read more...]

Uncle Ben’s Blog Tour Giveaway Now Closed

Do you ever feel like you need more hours in your day? I do. At least 4 times a week I start my day between 6 and 7am, I turn around and its 4pm. I don't know how I lose the day, or where it goes, but in what seems like only a few hours I manage to completely forget about dinner.  Then, around 4pm I find myself staring into the fridge, hoping that some mysterious healthy meal is just going to jump out at me. It's not easy being a busy … [Read more...]

Wen Hair Care Review

I have to admit, I was a little skeptical.  I didn't think that a shampoo could work without lather.  No bubbles at all? I wondered.  I actually gave it to my Mom to try first.  She is fanatical about her hair and I knew she would be completely honest with me about it.  When she called me, her first comment was "my hair feels so soft!" Awesome! Now it's my turn.  As I've said before, I'm not a girly girl and my hair is usually in a pony tail … [Read more...]

Step2 Review (Giveaway Is Now Closed)

Wow!  It's been so hot this week!  It's amazing how the weather here in Nova Scotia can change so quickly.  Last week it was dreary and rainy, and all of a sudden we're hittin 30!  Though I'm not a huge fan of the heat, call me a winter girl, but it's great for the kids (sunscreen included). Nice weather and outdoor play make for very happy kids, and this week Ben has had the opportunity to play his little heart out!  Especially since we got … [Read more...]

Misikko Hana Flat Iron Review & Giveaway

Ok, so I'm not really a girly girl...actually, I'm not a girly girl at all.  I'm still in the chaotic Mom world who does everything for her kids, her blog, and, well, everyone else.  At least until last week when I went on my One Perfect Day when everything was about me.  It was strange to be treated so well, and previous to leaving I knew I had to 'fix myself up'.  Though not a girly girl, it does make a girl feel better when she knows she looks … [Read more...]

Digital Keychain Review & Giveaway

Keychains have come a long way.  It seems like just about everything we use daily has advaced in some way, shape or form.  When I was a kid you could get novelty keychains, actually, my best friend growing up used to collect them, She had a crazy amount of them.  As the digital age has come (and probably to stay) we're always looking for ways to hold on to our digital memories.  Long gone is the age of the brag book, pround parents and … [Read more...]

Ouchies – Review & Giveaway

Ben screams at the sight of blood.  Even the tiniest little pin prick and he opens up into the most ear piercing shreeks.  He has become a bandage addict.  For every owie, for every bug bite, for every little pain, he demands a bandage on it to make it all better...long gone are the days when a simple kiss from Mommy did the trick. Usually I buy the generic flesh tone bandages, since he seems to go through so many I do try to buy them in … [Read more...]

It's had to … [Read more...]
