We have always been fans of IHOP and it just keeps getting better.  We have had many great times there, from tricking Broxton into getting up early for school and then surprising him with IHOP instead to going to eat IHOP before having Savannah, it has been a great place for conversations and memories.  I am glad to work with IHOP to share with you that they have partnered with NO KID HUNGRY and you can help make a difference!

Now that school is back in for us, people are in to more of routine.  We are still celebrating.  It is the little things, right?  First day of school was a success?  Why not have a frozen drink after school to celebrate?  First week was great?  Let's have pizza night to end the week on a good note!  
You can go big or go small, but things you want to keep in mind.... FUN FUN FUN!!!

We were recently invited to Medieval Times in Atlanta for a blogger event. If you follow me on Instagram you saw some of the pictures from that night. It was great, but I wanted to post this now, to remind you that although summer break has ended for many, that doesn't mean that you can't treat the family to a fun night out.  (I love …

Do you let your kids pick out their own clothes? Mary Had a Little Glam #RaisingAReader

Want to know something that makes my heart happy?  When I am reading to Savannah and Broxton comes in to sit and listen too.  He doesn't look at it as a "girl / boy" book or "baby / big kid" book.  He looks at it as mama is taking time to spend reading and normally the books are cute and funny, no matter what the target age is meant to be.

I was sitting in the living room reading Mary had a little glam to Savannah when Broxton came in.  He listened to the last page and then asked me to start over and read it again because he missed the whole book.  After I read it to him, he decided to read it to himself and I just love seeing a book in his hands.  I also love when I catch him sitting there reading…

Up first is The Bot that Scott built.  This book is by Kim Norman and I thought the name sounded familiar.  I knew I had read something else by that name and as soon as we started the book, I knew! Come to find out, I have read several by her!!!!   This book is no different, meaning it is a great read! 
In "The Bot that Scott Built" we see the disasters that go on all day, as soon as we are introduced to "the bot that Scott built!&qu…

I have reviewed Loot Crate subscription boxes before and they really do keep on amazing me with the quality of products.  Not only are the boxes they send out awesome for gamers and "geeks" of all ages, I have been really impressed with their dedication to the customers!   FTC Compliant Review Policy:  The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing.

In May they sent out their POWER Loot Crate box.  (I still get all excited seeing the design they come up with when you flip the box inside out upon arrival.)  This box was once again full of cool items.  Not too long after the box arrived, I received an email saying not to use one of the items and to wait for further instructions...  Keep reading.

Have you seen Shimmer and Shine?

Image
We have not watched Shimmer and Shine that much, but after going to a friends birthday that had that as the theme, we wanted to see what it was really all about.  The next time it was on tv, we watched. Actually had one of the older brothers here too, so he watched as well!  It is a cute show that I am sure Savannah will be watching as she gets older, glad we have it on DVD now!    Available for purchase on August 16, 2016.
