Easy DIY Back to School Duct Tape Decorative Storage Container Project

Duct Tape Container

I recently discovered a love for duct tape decorating! Considering my lack of crafting skills, I was super stoked to find what I consider to be the easiest method of crafting on the planet! When Scotch sent me some of their coolest fun duct tape colors and patterns to try out,  I couldn’t wait to try it out on something. I started covering old prescription bottles (I had surgery recently, remember? Lots of prescriptions for that!), but needed a bigger project. Then I remembered that we still had ice-cream containers from when I did the Blue Bunny review over at […] Read more »

Take the Pain Out of Summer Fun with Puracyn #PuracynFirst

Take the Pain Out of Summer Fun with Puracyn #PuracynFirst

When you’re a mom to a 9-year-old, summer is all about climbing trees, spinning on tire swings, running through the sprinkler and generally being active. When you’re mom to MY 9-year-old who has inherited my klutzy gene, being active often means dealing with scrapes and bruises. Jacob isn’t the only one who suffers from scrapes and bruises. Like I said, he got that klutzy gene from me. I could get wounded in a room filled with cotton balls! I’ve had more than my fair share of wounds in my life. I wish Puracyn® OTC Wound & Skin Care had been […] Read more »

Total Clean Lineup from Sam’s Club: The Only Team You’ll Need to Clean

TotalCleanTweet2_zps9b1ee31a

This post brought to you by Procter & Gamble. All opinions are 100% mine. Cleaning is not fun. Well, maybe for some people it is, but for me, it’s an incredibly hassle.  The truth is, when it comes to laundry, I usually end up doing it in a frenzy because we’ve completely run out of clean clothes. Dishes, I’m a bit better at, mostly because we have a dishwasher. Also because my cat likes to lay in the sink, and I like to appease her (otherwise she’ll harass me as I try to work!). Total Clean Lineup: Take the Guesswork […] Read more »

Catty Stacks: Fun for Cats and Kids!

Catty stacks 4

I received complimentary Catty Stacks to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of owning a cat (or, more accurately, being owned by a cat) knows how much cats love boxes. We parents also know how much kids love boxes! If you have cats and kids, you know that often the two don’t really mesh. In fact, my son just turned nine and the cats are FINALLY accepting his presence. Well, one of them, anyway. Willow recently decided that Jacob is her favorite human. I didn’t realize just how much she loved […] Read more »

This post brought to you by Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine. When did dolls get so cool?

She  is a “friend” that really plays with you. She responds to her accessories, […] Read more »

Zoomer™ and Zuppies™ : All the Fun of a Dog without the Mess!

778988090404_20066853_Zoomer_Bentley_GTL_Product_5_zps443fed80

This post brought to you by Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine. When I was a teenager and into my early adult years, we rented houses where pets weren’t allowed. I wanted a dog so bad! Especially since I grew up with the best dog pretty much from birth to age 11. I knew what great companions they were and missed that! If your kids are begging for a dog but your circumstances don’t allow it, you can still give them a taste of the fun! Give them the dog they want with Zoomer™ and Zuppies™!   Zoomer™ and Zuppies™ […] Read more »
