Life in the Dreamhouse with Barbie #BarbieIsMoving

IMG_20130825_214515_688

As my family and I contemplate our next chapter in our life, we’ve considered that it might include a new home.  So a bit of the #BarbieIsMoving campaign really resonated with us.  I never had Barbie dolls as a child, and obviously never had a Barbie Dreamhouse… but I ALWAYS wanted one.  We had a neighbor whose grand-daughter had every Barbie and the Dreamhouse to boot.  My sister and I LOVED when she came and visited her grandmother with her Barbie suitcase and everything else Barbie in tow.  Looking back, the 1980’s Barbie Dreamhouse was really something to behold and […]

Mike the Knight at the New York Renaissance Faire

{ written by: Kristen Ryan } The New York Renaissance Faire has always been a go-to event for my family. My husband, two boys and I get a kick out of riding a school bus from the parking lot, exploring the enormous event and walking around among the wenches. The kids love the jousting and the costumes and the pageantry, and I am oddly comfortable with a giant turkey leg in one hand and a stein of grog in the other. This year the Faire invited us to check out the all-new Mike the Knight live show, which will appear […]

Back to School with Staples

IMG_20130821_112106_133

We love Staples!  It’s one of our MUST stops during the back-to-school season.  I love all the bins filled with not just amazing deals, but also amazing and cute selections!  They’ve got you covered with everything from basic supplies to computers.  I recently got schooled on how to select a new computer by their knowledgeable staff.  For a solid notebook for back to school, the HP Pavilion 11 TouchSmart was highly recommended to fit our family’s needs. It’s the most affordable HP touch-enabled notebook and is great for work and play. It’s also super affordable at $399.99.  I was eying […]

A Healthy Start to the School Year with #OTCSafety

IMG_3804

With the start of the new school year also comes a season of mixed emotions for my family.  We’re all excited to start the new school year, but heading back to school often means a plethora of germs being spread around, and while being sick is no fun for anyone, its not uncommon to be battling colds and infections in the first few weeks back to school. I’m especially nervous with the Little Mister’s first time in a school setting.  If history tells me anything, I can expect a few colds and infections while he acclimates to his new environment.  […]

Back to School with Sonicare Power Up!

IMG_1012

Aiming for a healthy start to the new school  year, we’ve teamed up with Sonicare!  Oral health has always been super important in our family.  I’ve had my share of dental issues from pregnancy induced severe enamel loss to countless cavities and root canals — not to mention thousands of dollars — which lead to an intense fear of the dentist.  My sweet tooth never helped the situation.  While my new discovery and love of nitrous gas, which now I must have included in every dental visit to relieve anxiety, I’ve learned that proper oral care can go a long […]

Ending Child Hunger Starts Now, with a code! #ChildHunger

CHEHBloggerBadge

During the school year, 21.5 million children rely on free or reduced-price meals to help them keep from going hungry. When school is out, only 2.3 million children participate in the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). This means there are millions of children at an increased risk of hunger during the summer. You can help by purchasing participating ConAgra Foods products and entering those codes to trigger meal donations. I am so thrilled to be a part of this social media movement where at Blissdom alone, tweeting efforts with the #ChildHunger hashtag, helped us reach a total donation of 186,426 […]
