REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY: iHome | Disney Tow Mater Alarm Clock

tow

With a new baby on the way, we’ve been trying hard to make the transition for my little man as easy as possible.  With less than 3 months to go, we realized this was a lot harder than we thought it was going to be.  As many of you know, the little man has been co-sleeping with us since he was born.  It was simply the best solution for my breastfeeding child and our family.  Despite having ended that lovely bond over 6 months ago, we found it hard to take him out of our bed.  It was nice having […]

28 Days of Impact: The Story of Nilgun #vaximpact

large button

Vaccinations are something that we take completely for granted here in America.  It always amuses me, as a Labor & Delivery nurse, that our patients can opt in or opt out of vaccinations for their newborns.  It is something we take for granted but in other parts of the world, vaccinations means life or death. Millions of children’s lives are put at risk every year because they lack access to life-saving vaccines.  The people who are on the fields, risking their lives to improve the lives of these children are heroes.  With every vaccination they administer, they are are giving […]

GIVEAWAY: Celebrate National Girl Scouts Cookie Day on Friday, February 8th!

20130122-154641.jpg

Every year, millions of Americans support the nation’s largest girl-led business with a box of their favorite Girl Scouts Cookies. Many of these American’s don’t even know much more than Girl Scouts Cookies are a thing made to covet and only come once a year. I know I cheer every year when its Girl Scouts Cookies time and order up to 15 boxes a year from anyone and everyone who is selling. I’ve been known to freeze them, making them last longer. We’re supporting a $790 million cookie program that helps fundraising goals for local camps and troop outings. Despite being […]

Getting Organized with the Experts from Staples

BETTER Binder with Removable FileRings

One of the hardest things about being on bed rest is not being able to just do what I want to do, like organize!  Definitely the time has let me make endless lists upon lists of things TO DO.  Most people get the urge to organize before the New Year, for us, Chinese New Year is right around the corner.  One of the traditions is to sweep out the old for the New Year and that includes organizing and tidying up loose ends before welcoming in the New Year.  For many others, the New Year might have started off rough […]

PREGNANCY DIARY: Baby Baby Baby!

[quote]Sitting Pretty at 28 weeks:  Starting Bed rest Week #3[/quote] I know everyone has been waiting for an update on Baby #3.  We’re doing great.  It’s been hard adjusting to being on bed rest, but we’re finally settling in.  It was one of the most hard decisions to come to but it finally came to a head, and I had to face reality.  The pain of my condition had become unbearable and working full-time was simply not an option as much as I loved my job.  I was already pushing it for weeks and probably taking way more pain medication […]

REVIEW: Yo Gabba Gabba! Get Your Sillies Out! Tour

yo

[quote]We’ve Gotta Jump, Shake & Shimmy Them Out![/quote] The kids version of a party in the club would be none other than a Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! Get Your Sillies Out! concert and it’s making its way around to a neighborhood near you. This was our first Yo Gabba Gabba! concert and I’m pretty sure it won’t be our last.  From the moment we entered the very chill Paramount Theatre in Huntington, LI, we were on our feet dancing away.  Yes I admit, even on medical bed rest, I was up and bopping (gently) away.  The excitement in the room […]

GIVEAWAY: Heating Things Up with Honeywell!

HZ-435

Brrrr it’s COLD outside! Winter’s chilly temperatures and icy winds are blanketing the entire country this week. As people turn to their thermostats, some Gender Wars may ensue! Who keeps the house warmer? Who controls the thermostat?  How do you keep warm when your spouse won’t turn up the thermostat?  When I was growing up I was always cold.  My parents never wanted to turn up the heat due to costs and we were often told to layer up.  I still remember the chill.  I’m lucky my husband is a little more accommodating, but when the heating bill comes, we […]
