New Album Release: Christy Nockels "Let It Be Jesus" {Review and Giveaway}

Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway. Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.
There's just something so uplifting about starting my day with worship songs while doing my morning routines. I was delighted to have an advanced digital copy of Christy Nockels' latest solo album "Let It Be Jesus" and it's been great for getting my day started on the right foot. I'll be honest it's been a while since I've had any new music for myself. Having a musician for a husband most of the new music in our house comes from his favorite artists. I've enjoyed having my own music, and I'm so much more productive when I have great music playing in the background!

Moms Are Super Heroes Too! Avengers 2 Coming To Theaters 5/1

This post is brought to you by Meijer, all views and opinions are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
With Mother's Day just around the corner I think this is a perfect time to celebrate moms as super heroes! The thing about a true hero is sometimes the good deeds that they do can go unnoticed. The simple every day challenges that are met with bravery and a smile is what makes moms super heroes. With The Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron coming to theaters May 1st, I've teamed up with Meijer to share with you some fun ways to be even more of a super hero to your family on movie night!

Check Out The #AMDFX Laptop At Best Buy

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. 
Are you in the market for a new laptop? Not too long ago I was on the hunt for my first ever laptop! I know that might seem unbelievable since I'm a blogger, but I had always used a PC. Going from a PC to a laptop for the first time can be a little intimidating. I wasn't quite sure what I was looking for, and though my husband was shopping with me he didn't really know what I was needing for my work. Thankfully, our first stop was at our local Best Buy and I had some really good help. The young man who came over to help me asked me several questions about how I would be using my laptop. This helped him determine exactly what my needs were. I loved that he paid attention and didn't just try to sell me the most expensive laptop, but he listened to my budget and helped me find the best laptop for me.

Children's Book "Janine" Teaches Kids To Be Yourself

I received a copy of this book in exchange for this post all views and opinions are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
Have you ever felt left out or excluded for being different? I think a lot of kids go through rough stages of being excluded. I don't understand why some children are cruel, but I've always thought you can teach your kids to include others by making sure you never give them an example of excluding. Even as adults we can sometimes not realize we're excluding people, but if we actively work at being great friends and being friendly to everyone our kids will follow our lead. It's not enough to just teach our kids to be yourself, you also have to teach them to be kind. We were given a copy of the children's picture book "Janine" for review and it resonated with the Booper.

I love knowing secrets before everyone else! Imagine my delight when I was able to preview the upcoming two-hour season premiere of the Hallmark Channel's original series "When Calls The Heart" before everyone else. Fans of the series call themselves Hearties, though I haven't been a Heartie through season one I can see why so many are. After watching the premiere I was hooked to the characters and story.

Fast And Delicious Meals For Busy Moms From Hamburger Helper #FreeBeef

I used to love to cook. I would actually look up recipes to try for my husband especially when we were newlyweds. We would even take turns cooking and washing the dishes! Over the years and after having our son our roles have changed so much and life is much busier. With a five year old who's a picky eater I have to find meals that will keep everyone happy at the table. My husband being a great provider for our family now works insane hours at his job and has no time for helping with dishes. I've always said I don't mind cooking it's the clean up that kills me. Hamburger Helper is a huge time saver not just because it's so easy to make, but I can make the whole meal in one pan.

Joining The #28DayFaceCleanse

I will receive compensation for this post, all views and opinions are my own. 
I've never been one to take care of my skin like I should. A friend was asking me the other day about my skincare routine and I burst out laughing. I have never had a skincare routine, but now that I'm thirty-three I've realized it's starting to show. When asked if I would take the Burt's Bees #28DayFaceCleanse Challenge I was hesitant at first wondering if I would see any benefits. After some thought I figured I will never see any change in my skin if I don't change what I've been doing which was nothing.

A Busy Mom's New Best Friend

This post is sponsored by Coupons.com, all views and opinions are my own. 
There have been so many times I've joked that I wish I could clone myself so I could get more done in a day. Have you ever wished you had more time to get all your chores finished and still have the time to read a book? If you could just do two things at one time then you'd feel better about your time management skills? I feel your pain. As a busy work from home mom, I'm always looking for ways to be more productive. Time management has never been my strongest trait. When I find a cool way to make better use of my time, I have to share. Audible a new service from Amazon is making it easy for moms like me to not miss out on our favorite author's new book.

Let's Talk About #AntioxidantFacts

This conversation is sponsored by ConAgra Foods and The Motherhood, all views and opinions shared are my own. 
As a mom who is constantly having to shop for groceries, I've often been the one standing in a grocery aisle staring at a box to read the ingredient list. I've heard the saying if you can't read the ingredients then don't eat it, but I've wondered how much truth there is in that statement. I was honored to be invited to join a virtual briefing with the wonderful people at ConAgra Foods and The Motherhood joined by several other concerned bloggers like myself. I have so many questions about the preservatives and antioxidants being added to our foods, but never knew where to turn for the facts. Chances are that you've had a lot of the same questions floating around about antioxidants, and I hope to help share the insights I learned with you now.

In The Kitchen With Mommy {Gorton's Review & Giveaway}

I received product in exchange for this post, all views and opinions are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
It's not every day that I invite the Booper to join me in the kitchen to help make our lunch, so he was very excited to tie on an apron and be my helper. The menu of the day: Gorton's Fish Sticks - an easy favorite. The Booper was happily flexing his cooking muscles and had the spatula ready to go (or perhaps it was a good shield from the camera). The Smarty Crunchman fish stick plush stuffy was fun to play with while we waiting for our lunch to bake.
