Silhouette April Promotions! (And some awesome crafts I made!)

I’ve had my Silhouette Cameo machine a little over a month now and I have to say, I can’t believe I lived without one for so long. This amazing machine has made quite the crafter out of me. My daughter’s 2nd birthday invites were a custom design of a Minnie face, complete with pop-up bow […]

Nintendo 3DS Review and Yoshi’s New Island Now Available!

In a world of iPads, iPhones, and iPods, our children are inundated with electronics. I’m not complaining, I was a techie kid myself and believe in the value of learning through electronic games and devices.

Cute new Clawz shoes and 30% off!

I’ve always said one of the best things about having little girls is dressing then up and buying them adorable shoes.

We Showed Our #DisneySide and Had a Party!

My girls have always been into Disney, but it wasn’t until after they visited Disney World this past Christmas that they really felt the magic of all Disney had to offer. You can say we are a Disney Family because our birthday parties center around a Disney theme, and our playdates generally involve a Disney […]

A different take on the Easter Basket

Our Potty Training Journey Update #CelebrateFirstFlush #Sponsored #MC

We started our potty training journey with my almost two year old a few months ago. She was showing me many signs of being ready and initiated potty training on her own. I thought since she showed much interest, potty training was going to be a breeze. What I didn’t realize was that shortly after […]
