As we all know, I love PBS.  The shows on there are great for all of us and I fell in love with them all over again when Broxton was born. The kids programming is not only fun for them to watch, it is also educational and for a mama, that makes my heart happy!  We loved the children's programs throughout the early years of Broxton's life, but when you are 6 going on 21, you seem to say " I don't want to watch those BABY shows anymore!" Having turned the corner on those shows, we are now coming back around since we have Savannah.  No, I don't plop her in front of the tv or anything like that, but as I mentioned, we love background noise here, so we have been known to…

This past weekend, we had a great time celebrating the re-release of Kung Fu Panda 1 & 2 in anticipation of Kung Fu Panda 3.  Working with Fox Home Entertainment Insiders, we were sent a great package full of items to make this a great night...   


Broxton could not remember what happened in Kung Fu Panda 2, so he was excited to see it again.  (He loved the first one so much that he named his stuffed panda from the zoo, Po.)  We made a day out of it and had snacks and all sorts of goodies to get the party started.  Perfect to do on a cold winter day!  Yes, it is finally getting cold here, even though it was in the 70's over Christmas Break. Broxton was enjoying his snacks with Po.  Yes, his hair is getting long, but he …

Are you one that makes New Years Resolutions?  I have never been one to do so, because lets be honest here, if I want to do something I will do it then, not wait until the New Year to start. I know that might not be the best attitude, but it is the truth.  Yes, I say I want to lose weight. I want to eat healthy.  I want to be a better me...  but it didn't start because of January 1st. It happened because I want to be around for me...  to see my children have children.  To see what they become.  Maybe that is selfish, but it is true.  Actually maybe I did make "resolutions" but I like to word it different.  I started a "new chapter in my life."  Nothing really changed, but I told my husband that we do …

Even before I became a mom, I loved Disney movies. I fell in love with them as a child and it is a love that carried on years after childhood ended.  I will admit that I was excited to become a mom, for obvious reasons, but also because the love of Disney Movies could live on forever!
I am excited to share with you just a few of the movies set to be released this year!

I will be the first to tell you that I am not a "girly girl."  I do not wear makeup (except for special occasions) and I don't wear dresses.  There is nothing wrong with that, just like I think there is nothing wrong with me NOT wanting to do the same.  Don't get me wrong, I used to wear makeup all the time and I used to get my nails done ALL THE TIME...   Just not these days.  I do love a nice pedicure and I love to be pampered...  but that is not the point of this blog post.  I wanted to tell you about WHY I only paint one of my fingernails.  
I received a collection of different colored nail polish from duri cosmetics for review.  I just loved the colors as they are not the "normal" colors that …

Time sure flies when you have little ones, doesn't it?  I don't remember when it was that Broxton started teething, but it seems like Savannah was teething when she turned 2 months old.  At 5 months now, I would think she was about to bust out a whole set of teeth with the amount of drool and gnawing on things that she does, but no teeth yet.  I am serious, when does it start?  Seems like it is too early for that, but here we are!   
Anyways, with teething comes all the gnawing and trying to put everything into their mouth. I was excited to get the chance for us to review the MUNCH MITT aka baby teething mitten.  I knew with the chunky plastic end and the bumps all over it that it would be PERFECT for my munching litt…
