Happy Mother’s Day from Dorset Cereals (giveaway)

  If Ashlyn had her way, she’d have cereal for at least 2, if not 3, meals a day.  I’m always checking the cereal aisle to find a cereal that is good for her but still tastes as yummy as the sugary stuff that she reaches for.  I was happy to receive a package from Dorset Cereals featuring a variety of their delicious and nutritious cereals and my family has been more than happy to help me taste-test them!

The most famous Never Land hero of all time is back! Before you can say, “I can fly!” – Peter Pan returns to lead Jake And The Never Land Pirates on their first-ever full-length adventure. During a game Read more […]

Norio Kids playhouse (giveaway)

 Ashlyn loves to play in her playhouse in the backyard, but like many families we just don’t have room to put one inside.  Norio Kids has a creative solution – a cardboard playhouse system! We received our Cocoro playhouse system just before Easter but I held off on opening it until after the holiday weekend.  With a total of 26 pieces, you can create any structure you like!  It comes with instructions for a basic playhouse, which is what we built.  The playhouse dimensions are 44” Read more […]
