Keep Everyone On Schedule With Calroo Plus A Giveaway

We teamed up with Bloggin' Mamas and Calroo to spread the word about this great new family friendly app.
Do you ever have problems keeping your family's schedule straight? As the Booper gets older, his schedule is probably the busiest of all of us. My husband's work schedule is constantly shifting and he works lots of overtime so keeping us all on the same page is quite a chore. With Calroo we can combine all of our schedules and tasks on one simplified calendar. This way my husband knows when I'm going to be taking the Booper to one of his summer classes. Calroo offers several features to keep you organized, but I love the grocery list feature and packing list so I can plan out our summer vacation!

The Calroo app is free to download, and everybody gets a free trial month of Calroo Pro. The iOS app is live on the Appstore, and an Android app is in the works you can sign up for a beta today. (Unlike other family calendar apps, even the free version of Calroo is completely ad-free)

Get The Kids To Put Down The Electronic Devices With #WaterWubble

I was provided product and compensation for this post. All views and opinions are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
Summer is a time for playing outside, but so many kids would rather sit on the couch and play video games. It was no different back when I was young, my mom sounded like a broken record telling us kids to go play outside. The Booper can really get stuck in the electronic zombie state, so I like to come up with ways to get him outside enjoying the beautiful weather. Playing with his friends is a big motivator to leave the couch behind, but sometimes his friends don't want to come out in the heat to play. I bet you can imagine how fast they came out to play when we mentioned a never-ending water balloon fight!

Pack Nexium 24 Hour ClearMinis For A Heartburn Free Vacation #SeeHeartburnDifferently

                                               I received this product for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest review. You can join Smiley360 here!


With summer break in full swing, we've been a family on the move. We just returned home from a fun trip to North Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. One of our favorite things about going to a new city is trying out all the new foods. My husband firmly believes his hometown in Massachuttes has the world's best pizza. Which means, we have to test the local pizza establishments wherever we go. Packing for our trip, I'm the type of packer that brings everything but the kitchen sink, but some things are necessities like our heartburn medicine. With all the foods we like to eat on vacation the new Nexium 24 Hour ClearMinis have to go in the bag.

What's In My Diaper Bag? 10 Essentials For Taking A Toddler To The Ballpark

I received product and a gift in exchange for this post, all views and opinions are my own. 
The Booper is now seven years old and plays in a baseball league with a pitching machine, which means I'm a full-blown baseball mom! There's nothing I love more than cheering on the boys as they learn the game and take pride in good sportsmanship. He's learning so many valuable lessons not just about the game but about life too. While I love being at the ballpark to enjoy his games, our little miss just doesn't have the attention span needed to sit still for that long. I have to come prepared and pack my diaper bag with 10 essentials that make watching his baseball games fun for her too.

Help Dad Take Care Of His Baby With The AutoRight SteamMachine

I received the below-mentioned product in exchange for this post. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
My husband has never been one to care much for clothes, he just wears whatever is comfortable. I can appreciate that. He doesn't spend money frivolously. Aside from our kids, he has very few things he really treasures, first comes his guitars he likes to keep them in tune, polished, and he keeps the strings oiled and replaced as needed. His next prized possessions happen to be our vehicles. I say he likes to "baby" his car, but really he takes excellent care of my truck as well. So many times on the weekend he'll pop in and tell me he's taking off to go use a car wash and then I'll find him in the garage waxing the car. I used to begrudge the time he spends maintaining our vehicles but now I realize how much pleasure he takes in having a shiny car. For this upcoming father's day, we surprised him with an early gift, it was the AutoRight SteamMachine. Every dad needs this awesome cleaning machine in his garage! Check it out and enter for a chance to win one from HomeRight below!
