Oh, Target coupon machine, don’t play games with me!

The other day I went to Target with my Mom and Baby D.  The hubby had taken Captain Fussybuckets to a football game, so I was going to go snag some stuff for his upcoming bday.  After I found some super cute jeans with adjustable waistbands and a cute t-shirt for him to wear to his birthday party, I ventured over to the food section.  Our favorite pasta was on sale for about 50 cents off.  Barilla PLUS:   We love this stuff because it doesn't taste whole-wheat-y and it has fiber, protein, & Omega-3s.  I admittedly don't splurge [...]

The Week In Pictures: October 16-22

My boys are sick again this week with a cold or virus or SOMETHING.  It’s annoying, but at least I can be thankful that it only lasts a few days.  It could always be worse, I have to remind myself. Between sicknesses, we went to the playground on a chilly day:

RoomMates Peel and Stick Decor

There's something about bare walls that get to me.  I like to have something on the walls or else they just look….bare.  There was a wall in our playroom/office that needed serious help.  When I went searching for what I wanted, I found RoomMates Peel and Stick Room Decals.  They have SUCH a large selection of amazing stuff!  Sports, Disney, chalkboard, dry erase…even MIRRORS!  But, since it was for a playroom for the boys, I selected the Alphabet Wall Decals to review.  They shipped them very quickly [...]

my son’s new obsession…

…..Peppa Pig.  This is his favorite episode:   It’s cute, but he wants to watch this and other episodes on the iPad alllll dayyyyy lonnnnng.  Oh well, it could be a lot worse.  Last night before going to bed he said “to-mah-toe” ketchup like Daddy Pig.  And when my hubby called, Fussybuckets said “that’s the fire phone, Daddy.”  LOL!  [...]

We love Baby Signing Time! {giveaway}

When Captain Fussybuckets was about six months old, I borrowed the “Baby Signing Time” DVD from our library.  He loved to sit and watch the videos and listen to the songs, and I loved learning signs that I could use with him.  He actually didn’t start signing until he was almost a year old, but when he “got it,” he took off and learned many signs!  He said his first word at 10 months, so I don’t know if that had any impact, but learning how to talk and sign simultaneously definitely helped, in my opinion.  We got him [...]

Kelapo Coconut Oil – great for cooking! {review & giveaway}

Have you ever thought about cooking with coconut oil?  I had heard of using coconut oil as a moisturizer (see yesterday’s review of Basa Body lotion!), a cloth diaper safe moisturizer and diaper rash prevention, and also a facial cleanser.  It seems obvious though – coconut oil to cook with.  Why hadn’t I thought of that? 8oz Kelapo Extra Virgin Coconut Oil – Glass Coconut is very similar to olive oil, but they obviously have different tastes.  I was sent a jar of Kelapo coconut oil to try out.  The first thing that I [...]

Basa Body Coconut Oil Body Lotion {giveaway closed}

I love the smell of coconuts.  Growing up, I remember how awesome suntan lotion smelled, but being a fair skinned redhead, I never got to use suntan lotion (I'd burn!)  But I recently had the opportunity to try the NEW Basa Body Coconut Oil Body Lotion and it.smells.YUMMY!  I love it!  It is so smooth and it immediately soothes my dry skin and leaves that fresh, coconut scent on my skin.     All Basa Body products are made with Virgin Organic Coconut Oil that is easily absorbed into the skin and has natural antioxidants that are antimicrobial, antibacterial, and [...]
