Dreyer's Ice Cream

Image
Dreyer's ice cream, a pregnant woman's best friend. I love ice cream and I always try to come up with some reason for me to eat it. "I need something sweet", "I'm pregnant", "I'm hot and need something to cool me off with". You can come up with a million reasons why you should eat ice cream. Drey's is one of my favorite too, most of the time I don't buy it because its a little pricey (or because I'm cheap). But they have always been the best.

Jerom Birthday Bash Giveaway

Image
So these past couple of days I've been posting up some of the awesome sponsors we have for Jerom's 2nd Birthday Bash.  Links are to my review posts. Be sure to comment on each one for extra entries. I have 3 separate prize packages available.

Package 1: Banner and Shirts

1.  Any child shirt from Great Stitch
2. 12 month photo banner from Uniquely Me Designs
3.  Choice of shirt from Cantaloupe Corner

Jerom Birthday Bash: Uniquely Me Designs

Image
I first came across Uniquely Me Designs shortly after my son's 1st birthday. I thought their 12 month photo banner was cute, but unfortunately Jerom had just turned 1. So I didn't need a banner right away. A year past, and my nephew was turning 1.  I remembered this shop and had to get him a birthday banner to celebrate.

I contacted the shop about doing a 12 month photo banner. I chose the 12-month-photo-banner-surfer. I then had to wait to get pictures from sister-in-law to use for my nephew's 1st birthday party. While I was waiting her party plans changed and she could no longer use the banner. So I discussed with the shop and we made some adjustments so that I could use it for my sons 2nd birthday instead.  First off I changed it from having #s for the month to having letters spelling out Happy Birthday. Since Happy Birthday was 13 letters instead of 12 we ended up adding a 13th photo.

So we are having a baby.....

BOY!!!! Thanks sweet pea maternity for the cute shirt and to Baby Smiles Boutique for the cute stickers!

Jerom Birthday Bash: gia paper studio

Image
My 2 year old is a messy eater. I wanted something that I could use underneath his spot at the table that would look nice and that could be cleaned up easily. I was happy when I found gia paper studio on Etsy.
This shop has stationary, place-mats, invitations, and family trees.

gia paper studio sent me a personalized train place-mat to use at my son's birthday party. I loved that the place-mat matched my son's party theme. The personalization also makes it extra special for my son.

Jerom Birthday Bash: Great Stitch

Image
I love making birthdays extra special with a special shirt or outfit.  Great Stitch is a shop I came across on Etsy. They have a variety of adorable birthday shirts for both boys and girl. She also has some holiday shirts or family shirts. If you have something in mind, she can work with you to customize a shirt that will meet your needs. 
I received the Train Birthday Shirt.  I was able to personalize it with my Son's name and the age he was turning.  This shirt is made out of a non-smoking home studio. The shirt is not a crack and peel type of shirt. It is made using a boutique quality shirt and high end embroidery. Wash the shirt on medium heat and dry. Can be ironed on medium heat if necessary but avoid ironing with high heat.

Jerom Birthday Bash: Julie's Treasures

Image
Have you ever wondered what should I get my son for his birthday? My son was turning 2. He had plenty of toys at home. Plus I knew that grandparents and friends would likely buy him some toys. As a parent, I'm always struggling with finding ways to organize and store all the STUFF my kids accumulate. I wanted to get my son something that would look nice, but not be just more stuff in the house. I came across Julie's Treasures on Etsy.

I loved the fabric storage bins that she had.  Especially the blue trains, planes and toysbin. I loved that this is a functional item that I can use to help organize the STUFF my toddler accumulates. Not only can I use this to organize, but it incorporates my son's love of trains and things that go.

Jerom Birthday Bash: For Your Bug A Boo

Image
As a parent, I love finding new places that provide healthy items for my child. I love that For Your Bug A Boo is a shop that has a great selection of healthy products for you and your baby.

Jerom Birthday Bash: Tree Hopper Toys

Image
What little boy doesn't love cars? Jerom loves anything with wheels. So when I saw Tree Hopper ToysI had to contact them. They make wooden toys such as Jalopies, Blocks, Yo Yo's and a Hopper horse. 

First let me tell you a little bit about the company. Tree Hopper Toys is a small family owned and operated business located in Chicago, Illinois.Tree Hopper Toys handcrafts a line of toys that promotes curiosity and fun in kids. The toys require no batteries and allow kids to use their imaginations. 

Happy 2nd Birthday

Image
So on July 14th my son turned 2. I can't believe how fast the time flies by. July 14th we spent attending my nephew's 1st birthday party at Organ Stop Pizza. It's a pizza place that has a guy playing an organ up front. The organ is also hooked up to other instruments all over the restaurant and they have special effects like puppets, bubbles, and flags that they use for certain songs. My kids loved watching the show and listening to the music. So we scheduled Jerom's party for this past weekend on the 22nd. The party was for mostly family with a few friends invited.  I have the worst luck, and it seems like hardly anybody shows up to parties I plan. This was no exception. Guests included: My parents and my grandma, husbands parents, and sister-in-law with her 3 kids. We ate dinner, kids played, then we opened presents. We didn't end up doing the cake because husbands parents, and sister-in law with her kids had to leave early. We ended up taking the cake to my pare…

Jerom Birthday Bash: Cantaloupe Corner

Image
I love finding cute shirts for my kids. When I came across  Cantaloupe Corner on Etsy, I was hooked. This shop sells birthday shirts along with everyday toddler shirts and some baby onesie's.

My son turned 2 and loves trains so naturally, I chose the Choo Choo I'm 2 shirt.  The shirt comes in green, navy, orange, black or brown. The front says "Choo Choo I'm 2" and has a train on it. I chose the orange colored shirt and love how vibrant the color is. It is an awesome shade of orange.

New I like book

Image
A few months ago I posted a review for the I like book. I just found out that they have a new anti-bullying book out. It is called "My friends like me"
The book is for designed for schools K-5th grades.  It is a peer to peer book for kids to do in the classroom where they write something they like about their classmates. At the end of the year the child will take home their book to reflect on forever. It is a true passion of mine to help children’s self-confidence grow and to know they are LIKED by family and peers too.
Right now, schools can get this book for their students for FREE. Your school just needs to sign up to do a fundraiser with I like book.  Every student enrolled in the school can get one.This is a special promotion limited to the first 100 schools to sign up.

nature's sleep slippers review

Image
While Nature's Sleeps make everything you need to have a good nights sleep, they also make soft slippers for your feet! I love slippers, you can never have to many. However one thing I hate with most slippers are that the bottom on them are soft so they wear out fast. They also get really dirty fast too, though kinds are more meant to just wear around the house (no running to the mail box). So when Nature's Sleep asked me to review one of their open toe terry slipper I was excited to try them out.

But lets face it that is the life of a mom! Here is the video and make sure you look at the bottom for all the links and what is in Incredible Greens.

Baby Babu cloth diaper review

Image
OK so I am still not great at cloth diapering but so far I am loving Baby Babu. Aiden has been really sick and so his poop has been really runny (I know TMI right lol). But I tell you this because Baby Babu has been the first cloth diaper that has held it all in! Here is a must remember for anyone who is new to cloth diapering or just got a new cloth diaper, you will need to wash the diaper a few times. This way when you put the diaper on your little on it will soak up more pee.

I've lost my mind

Hey all I first need to start by saying I am soooo sorry. I have lost my mind and with that my train of thought. The last few weeks, while they have not been a hard week they have just been a very forgetful week. I have some great reviews that I need to catch up on, and I want to say sorry not only to all of you readers but also to the companies.

I am going to work really hard this weekend on getting of the late review ups. Yesterday I had to take Aiden to the hospital he had a fever of 102!!! We found out he has hand-food-mouth virus. So hes been under the weather but he has also been sleeping a lot of that helps.

Anyhow once again I want to really say I am sorry that I have been so forgetful this last while and now I am back in full swing!!!!

Maternity Monday 16 weeks

Image
How your baby's growing: 16 weeks Get ready for a growth spurt. In the next few weeks, your baby will double his weight and add inches to his length. Right now, he's about the size of an avocado: 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces. His legs are much more developed, his head is more erect than it has been, and his eyes have moved closer to the front of his head. His ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of his scalp has begun, though his locks aren't recognizable yet. He's even started growing toenails. And there's a lot happening inside as well. For example, his heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as your baby continues to develop.

Premama prenatal giveaway 7/10

Oh the joys of being pregnant and having to take the big fat fatty prenatal pills!!!!! I end up just finding kids gummys because I hate taking the big pills. Well I found something new that I am in LOVE with. It is called Premama. They are your prenatal vitamin, but not in a way that you would think. This is powder! 

Ipad leather case cover review

Image
I am always looking for a good cover for my Ipad. Ryan got my one a few months ago and Aiden took right to it. Yes my Ipad is almost played with more by him then me! So I need to find a good cover that would cover not only the front but also the back. This way if he happens to have something to eat and there is still a little food on his hand it will not get all over my Ipad. Well Blurex makes a classic leather folio case for the Ipad 2 and 3.
