We Love Pillsbury Pizza on the Grill!

Pillsbury Grilled Crust

I have been a fan of pizza since I can remember. My oldest son is just like me and loves it, too! We try to have a weekly family fun night where we make or order pizza and a few weeks ago Pillsbury helped us to prepare our pizza in a way we never thought of - on the grill! We were provided with grilling tools kit, Pillsbury  pizza crust and a $10 gift card to buy pizza toppings and we had a blast creating two grilled pizzas for family … [Read more...]

Noodles that Protect THEIR Noodles

JoovysNoodle

My husband is the bike rider in our family. He invested in a good-quality bike and accessories about 5 years ago and he loves riding in the warmer months.

This year, Addy is old enough to go in the bike trailer, too. They both LOVE it and it often seems to be the highlight of their day! Being that my … [Read more...]

Learning About the Art Behind Animation #DisneyPlanesEvent

Disney Story Artist

My day at the Disney Planes event last month in California was full of all kinds of information and fun! I was inspired and intrigued all day!

Upgrading our Brushing Routine as a Family #PowerUpURSmile

Sonicare PowerUp Battery Toothbrush

We've been spending a lot of time brushing lately and trying to really instill in LA and Addy how important it is. We've been brushing their teeth twice daily: morning and night for some time now. Addy just doesn't want to have her teeth brushed. She doesn't mind the toothbrush if SHE'S the one in charge of it. After dealing with this problem for some time, I realized we all needed to work on our brushing routine and make it a family affair. … [Read more...]

New Mom Tool Kit at the Hospital and Beyond

When I was a first time mom 17 years ago there were so many things I wish someone would have told me when I was packing for the hospital. I was there for two nights with pretty much nothing that I wanted or needed. Fast forward 14 years to when LA was born and once again, it was like being a new mom since it had been so long and I was at the hospital without some of my wants. When Addy was born, I had it down! I researched, asked lots of people … [Read more...]
