Toilet Training Made Easy With #PampersEasyUps

This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Pampers Easy Ups.
 I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.
I've been told potty training boys vs potty training girls is very different. We aren't ready for the potty training stage yet with my daughter, but my son took to it easily once he was on board with it. It took him a while to want to try, but these new styles of Easy Ups from Pampers would have been a huge help back then. He absolutely loved Thomas and all things trains, so the designs definitely catch the eye of little boys who love everything with wheels like my nephew. My nephew is two and a half, and all boy. Like most two year olds he is very busy. When it comes to potty training, he needed training underwear that won't slow him down.

Peppa Pig Sunny Vacation DVD Giveaway

I received the below mentioned title in exchange for this post. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
I'm still in shock that Summer is closing and it's time for Fall. Even though where we live we've already been back to school for several weeks. I'm struggling to get into the groove, because I want to hang on to the fun we had over the break. Peppa Pig is a family favorite in our house. The Booper watches occasionally but Peppa is the first show our little miss ever showed any interest in watching. Even at just eleven months old our baby girl will laugh at the jokes on Peppa Pig, and any time she hears Peppa giggle and snort she wrinkles her nose and laughs too. Peppa's laughter and snorting is a bit contagious. I find myself repeating, "I'm Peppa Pig, SNORT!" randomly after the kids have been watching.

Hallmark Encourages Pet Adoption With New Best Friends Stuffed Animals

I received products from Love Hallmark in exchange for this post. All views and opinions are my own, sponsor is responsible for prizing. 

About nine and a half years ago I took a 200 mile trip to a no-kill shelter to pick up a energetic, black ball of fur and I named that little terrier mix Luna. Luna has been a puppy at heart every since and she seems to have boundless energy, and I have to say I hope it stays that way. Even now as her muzzle starts to show more and more gray she will bound after squirrels or birds in our yard. Growing up,  many of our pets were shelter pets or dogs people abandoned out in the country where we lived. We had some of the smartest, loving and loyal pets anyone could ask for. I remember being a teenager and coming home and the only one in the house was our family dog Nugget. She would walk around the house with me and I always felt safe since she was a large Great Dane. Nugget was stubborn,  loved to eat butter right off the table, but she was playful and fiercely protective of our family. My life has been better for having My Best Friend pets in it.

The Ninja Coffee Bar Keeps Me Rolling On Those Early School Mornings

I received this very useful product mentioned below in exchange for this post. All views and opinions are my own. 
I don't know about you, but I really got used my summer time sleeping schedule. Waking up most days without an alarm would be a nice way to live year round. With a ten month old teething baby who thinks night time is party time this momma needs a little help to get going in the morning. We like to sleep as long as possible so when it's time to get up we have to move fast to make it to school on time. I'm all about planning ahead for a smooth morning with the Booper. He isn't always a morning person and seems to wake up better when he gets a shower in the morning. I can't blame him. I'm not always a morning person either until I've had my coffee.
