SwaddleDesigns introduces their Angry Birds Collection (giveaway)

The incredibly popular game Angry Birds by Rovio and SwaddleDesigns have teamed up to launch a  new collection!  Perfect for the Angry Birds fan and new parent in your life, there are bodysuits, swaddle blankets and more featuring those cute – but angry – birds in red, yellow and blue. I’m a big fan of SwaddleDesigns and we used our Ultimate Recieving Blanket to swaddle Rowan all the time when she was first born.  Having their how to swaddle instructions on a tag sewn right on the blanket Read more […]

The Looneyspoons Collection (giveaway)

  I’m a longtime fan of Janet and Greta Podleski.  Some of my most frequently requested recipes come from their cookbook “Eat, Shrink and Be Merry” (try the Girl-Guy cookies and add about 1/4 cup of whole flax seeds for crunch – you can thank me later).  I was excited to see that their latest creation, “The Looneyspoons Collection” features many of  the recipes that I have made and enjoyed in the past, but they have been updated and ‘healthified’.  Lots of nutritional information has changed Read more […]

Fairy Dancing (giveaway)

Am I the only one who thinks winter is never going to end?  Between the weather and our various illnesses, we’ve been spending much more time inside than any of us would like to.   Watching “The Fairies – Fairy Dancing” is a great way for Ashlyn to pass the afternoon when Rowan is napping!  “From jazz to tap, tango to rock ‘n roll, bootskooting to ballet, the fairies discover so many different kinds of fan-fairy-tastic songs and dances. Featuring all of the Fairyland friends dancing, Read more […]

Dressing up is fun all year long

I’ve officially hit the ‘I’m sick of winter’ phase and there are still a good 2 months left.  It can be so hard to find new ways to entertain a little one when it’s too cold to play outside – or snowy, or rainy and icy as it has been for so much of our winter so far.  One thing that Ashlyn always enjoys doing when we’re cooped up inside is playing dress-up!  She has a fairly recent obsession with Disney Fairies and her favourite thing to do these days is to grab a blanket to use as ‘wings’ Read more […]

Valentine’s Day Cards

It seems like as soon as one holiday is over, there is another to look forward to!  With Valentine’s Day just a few weeks away I’m starting to think of fun activities to do with Ashlyn and her little friends.  There will be baking for sure – perhaps some sort of heart-shaped rice crispie treat since Ashlyn likes making those so much? – and crafts.  We ordered some classroom Valentine’s Day cards from Minted.com for Ashlyn and Rowan to hand out to their friends and send to our family members Read more […]
