Kidoodle.TV Review & Giveaway!

As a mom it is hard to find the balance between screen time and play time. But when I have a baby with a severe ear infection and have to wait in a walk in clinic for over half an hour with 3 kids, the only thing that matters is keeping my kids calm, cool, and collect. Our walk in clinics have wifi luckily so I brought my tablet with me to the doctors and I have to say Kidoodle.TV saved my sanity! Since I started Kidoodle.TV I have been much less stressed around dinner time when the kids are grumpy and bickering back and forth. If they can't seem to agree on a TV show, like most 4 and 5 year old brothers and sisters, I simply allow one to watch TV in the living room and the other to pick a screen for Kidoodle.TV. My kids love the shows on there and I have no worries about whether or not the content is going to change into something age inappropriate. I know we have a ton of children channels on TV but I have been debating on cutting cable altogether and this really h

Freshly Picked Moccasins Review & Giveaway!

I got to review some super adorable baby moccasins this week and boy I gotta tell you I am now a huge fan of moccasins! They are the perfect fit for my child's feet! They are very stylish with an elastic opening to get on even the chubbiest little ankles. They are just awesome! Here are some pics of my daughter with her new moccasins! Simply adorable! And they can go with almost anything! Super comfy, super cute, what could be better? Now I would love to share with you how to buy your own beautiful moccasins as well as some information on the company Freshly Picked ! Susan Petersen started making baby moccasins in 2009 after becoming frustrated by the lack of well-designed baby shoes. Using her second child, Gus, as a mocc-tester, and a bag of scrap leather she picked up at a yard sale, she began experimenting with designs. Working at her kitchen table, on a shoestring budget, Susan persisted through some disastrous attempts until she had created a pair

Beware Amazon Scam!

So this is the first time I have gotten an email from Amazon that I thought sounded strange. I have gotten hundreds of emails from people in Nigeria and such asking to wire transfer millions of dollars to my account but never anything from amazon. Turns out after I signed in via the email I received I took a second look at the email address it was sent from and the red flag went up right away! It was sent from where as all communications from Amazon come from an email provider. Not only that but the wording of the entire email just sounded strange: Dear Customer, Please note that your account will e

My 4 Year Old Princess!

My little girl is 4 today, yep I am going to say what every parent in the world says. Where does the time go? It has been quite the ride so far and boy has she ever got an attitude on her. She is a gorgeous girl and usually she is pretty sweet. But as she ages I see her sassy attitude emerge more and more, it makes me dread the teen years! But that is a long time from now so I am going to enjoy my little miss sassy pants while she is still small enough to pick up and hug into submission. For her party I am simply having a good old play date with all her little friends at our house, with cake and gifts and goodie bags. For decor I found a ton of stuff at the thrift store costing me a whopping $2.00 and for the rest I found some super neat printables online. We are going with a pink minnie mouse theme .  Her party is on Saturday so I will show you what I am working on for decor and such until the big day.  Here are a couple of items:

Rainbow and Clouds for Dessert!

Have you ever wanted to eat a rainbow? I know my kids were super excited when I told them we were having a rainbow and clouds for dessert. I have every color in there although it is difficult to see. I wish I had a big clear glass bowl to show you how amazing it looked. I tried hard to lay it nicely in the bowl but it flopped over :(  Anyways all you need is 6 packages of jello and a lot of patience, it took me a day of waiting and making jello to create this dessert. Start by making the first package of jello, I started with purple to create the perfect rainbow. Let it set almost completely before starting the next package in a separate bowl. Let the second package cool but not set and then pour it on top of the first layer, which should be almost completely set. Repeat those exact steps until your rainbow is complete! And then use some mini marshmallows or whipped cream for the clouds.

Inside the box we found: A cute little yellow pastel bunny that is made from delicious white chocolate. Some delicious mint chocolate almonds that I ended up eating by the handful.

St. Patrick's Day Rainbow Banner Decoration!

I am very pleased with how this beautiful decoration turned out. The transformation is pretty amazing actually. I started with just a plain old piece of cardboard and went from there. Here is what you need to make your own: Cardboard Paint Glitter Glue Ribbon Paper Here you have your plain old cardboard. Now just draw yourself a rainbow and clouds with a pencil so you can erase the lines easily.  Cut out your rainbow. Paint the entire rainbow white so you have a blank canvas to work with. The colors will look better if you do this instead of painting on plain cardboard.  Paint your rainbow. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. I used silver glitter glue and put a coat over the entire rainbow, it really brought out the color and now it is shiny, sparkly and pretty :) Then to finish it all off I printed out this cute banner: and attached it usi
