If you have visited this blog before, you might know how much we love the shoes from Stride Rite.  I will sing their praises, as they are really good for us.  Broxton can do some damage on shoes, so for the longest time I would just buy a cheap pair from a local store and when they were worn out, we would just buy a new pair.  We then tried out Stride Rite and we have never looked back!  Well, actually this one time, his daddy wanted to buy him a pair of shoes like his, so we ventured out to that store and after wearing them for about 10 minutes (and him not liking them) we took them back to their store and then headed further down in the mall and got him a new pair of Stride Rite shoes!

If you have not heard of Paw Patrol, you really should check it out.  It is a super cute show from Nickelodeon about a group of Pups that live with their caretaker, Ryder.  They each have their own "thing" they do... Be it a police dog, a fire dog, a recycle dog and so on.  We love each of them for different reasons.  This year, all fans of Paw Patrol were gifted with a new pup to love... Everest!!!  Broxton was so excited the first time we saw her.  I thought he was crazy when he was talking about the new dog, but once I watched with him, I knew we had a new cute pup to love!  
The PAW Patrol pups are back with daring new rescues and a new puppy crew member in PAW Patrol: Meet Everest! Fan-favorite Everest and high…

With Back To School all around us, I wanted to take a few minutes to highlight on a product that many don't really think about.  Okay, Okay, maybe it was just me.. because I didn't think about it until this year!  Each year when back to school rolls around, I go and start thinking about clothing.  Having a young son, we always had to go and grab the cute character t-shirts and then I would grab a few polo style shirts as well.  The polo style were great, as he could wear them to school and then wear it on Sunday to church!  Each year for Christmas, I get all the boys a pair of pajamas that they wear on Christmas Eve.  Normally I just grab the pj pants, but last year, I went and got them matching shirts, since it was …

Do you have pets?  We don't... yet.  Maybe one day, but no time soon!   Broxton had asked for a puppy or a sibling and well, we see what route we chose to head down!  He loves dogs and maybe one day we will get a dog for him, but not these days. It is enough with a baby and a very hard headed son!   Until then, he can somewhat get his "fix" by watching a puppy filled DVD from Nickelodeon.   He is happy watching it and I don't have to clean up after a puppy any time soon!   I know that the days of these shows are almost all in the past, as he will sometimes say they are " too baby" for him... but he doesn't complain when it is on as background while he plays with his toys!  I love that we are s…

We love summer here, for several reasons.  One reason, school is out.  The other reason?  Swimming pools and being outside!!!!   While that is all fun and we can make lots of memories, we actually love fall as our favorite season.  You know... the cooler temperatures, the leaves changing... and let's not forget FOOTBALL SEASON!!!  (You can also add in Halloween and Thanksgiving, but the top for me is Football Season and Cooler Temps!)  Once school starts back, Broxton also starts back... asking when fall will be here!  We were excited to get the Celebrate Fall DVD from Nickelodeon for review to help get us ready for the new season!  
Beach parties may be over, but autumn fun and adventures are just starting in Nickelodeo…

I have always been a fan of Charlie Brown and the gang.  I think they are cute, they are timeless, they are classic.  Broxton doesn't seem to get as into it as I do, but that is alright with me.  He does watch from time to time (and daddy gets into watching the Great Pumpkin!)  I was excited to get the Peanuts Emmy Honored Collection for review.  When I receive animated DVD's, I like to get them for Broxton, but with this one, I was honestly wanting it for me.  I am excited and hope that little Savannah will enjoy all of the characters like I do!  This would make a great gift for any Peanuts fan!

The older Broxton gets, the more he turns into his own person and I just love it.  I guess it was about a year ago when he started drifting away from the preschool shows we used to watch together and turned to choosing other shows.  One was Teen Titans Go.  I was not familiar with it at all, but once he watched, he was hooked!  He loves the show (to the point where my mom got him Teen Titans Go figurines for part of his Christmas last year.)  I didn't realize how popular it was, until I heard other children talking about it.  Yep, pretty big on the young boys radar!!!!  Lucky for us, they just released Season 2, Part 2: House Pests on DVD.  Might want to grab it now and put it up for Christmas, if you can wait that long!…
