SleepyHeads Matching Family Pajamas + #Giveaway

Disclosure: I received a set of pajamas from Sleepyheads for review. All opinions are my own.

I have seen many photos of families in matching pajamas, especially over the holidays. Too bad that Hubs was always reluctant and never wanted to do anything matchy matchy after I made him wear matching shirts once while we were dating. Comfortable yet fun sleepwear is a necessity during the cooler seasons because we tend to lounge in them a wee bit longer than just for sleep. SleepyHeads is the one-stop shop for jammies for the entire family.

Philips Avent Comfort Double Electric Breast Pump + #Giveaway

Disclosure: My friend received the Double Electric Comfort Breast Pump from Philips Avent for review. All opinions are her own.

Giving birth was one of the greatest joys of my life and giving the best to my child was the most important agenda for my newborn. That meant, I wanted to breastfeed my child as long as I could and hopefully for the entire first year. As a working mom, nursing is not an option for a long time. The Philips Avent Double Electric Comfort Breast Pump is revolutionary in technology and a great asset.  

VTech® Learning Toys $130+ Bundle + #Giveaway

Disclosure: I received the following for review from VTech. All opinions are my own.

It is awesome watching Mason grow up and develop. His learning skills seem to be quicker than Kenzie perhaps because he is learning from watching her. VTech® offers quite the selection of learning toys that make learning fun. Since Mason is really into cars and sounds nowadays, he immediately gravitated toward the VTech Sit-to-Stand Smart Cruiser first. 

Learning Resources | Classroom Kitchen Set + #Giveaway

Disclosure: I received the Classroom Kitchen Set from Learning Resources for review. All opinions are my own.

My kids both love to cook....pretend cook, that is. They have been enjoying the New Sprouts® play food from Learning Resources for some time now which I always recommend as hands down the best. The New Sprouts® Classroom Kitchen Set is the perfect companion to novice cooks either at home or at school. It is a nice complete set for meal prep and service!

Little Tikes Anchors Away Pirate Ship Review

Disclosure: I received the Anchors Away Pirate Ship from Little Tikes for review. All opinions are my own.

I suppose we are lucky to live where the climate is nice year round. The kids can play outdoors until dinnertime as well as head to the parks and beaches on the weekends. They also enjoy any sort of water play and were delighted to see the Anchors Away Pirate Ship from Little Tikes. I assembled it upstairs in no time when it arrived and they played with it sans water for a few weeks before I hauled it down the steep stairs outside.

Discreetly Control the Leaks + FREE Sample #AlwaysDiscreetatTarget

There are some things that you are not quite prepared for after having a baby. I know that I received lots of advice and warnings of what may happen but can't quite imagine until it actually occurs. For instance, after having Kenzie Hubs asked if there was another baby waiting to come out. I guess that's what happens when gaining 50+ pounds!

Disclosure: This is a partnered post.

2014 World Vision Gift Catalog + #Giveaway

Disclosure: I was provided with two items for review. All opinions are my own.

During the holiday season it's so easy to forget about those who are in need during the hustle and bustle. World Vision is near and dear to my heart as my mother has sponsored and donated since I was younger and my in laws have done the same when both kids were born. A child is a gift so why not help those who are in need? The 2014 World Vision Gift Catalog has an array of items to select from in various giving categories.

Sparkle Pipe Cleaner Party Crowns #FunCraftsWithMom

If she could, Kenzie would dress up as a princess everyday to school. Since it's not quite practical to wear a costume to school (other than on special occasions), I thought it would be fun for Kenzie to make some easy crowns that would make her feel like a princess any day of the week.
