I learned all about the importance of banking cord blood when I was pregnant. all 3 of my pregnancies were hard on me, my body and the baby. At one point my doctor even said that 2 of my children would not make it or be born with birth defects, which was just crushing. I didn’t want to take any chances, so we looked into banking just in case. Luckily the doctors were wrong, but I am glad that we took the chance and banked our daughters blood.

Hormel Helps you Spice Up Your Grilled Cheese #HormelFamily

Disclosure: I’ve partnered with Hormel Foods as part of the Hormel FoodsExtended Family Blogger Program. Throughout the year I’ll be receiving product, coupons, giveaways and promotions. However, no payment was given or expected for posting about the program, and as always, all opinions given here are fully my own.

Today is National Grilled Cheese day, perfect day to make your favorite grilled cheese sandwich. Instead of making a regular grilled cheese sandwich plain spice it up with Hormel Pepperoni or bacon. Another option is add guacamole or salsa. There are so many possibilities.



My kids were really pleased with the grilled cheese and pepperoni sandwiches. They were asking for more, and loved it.

We even did Ham and grilled cheese, with the leftover Hormel Cure81 Ham we have from Easter. My son just loved that. He said it gives it extra flavor.


Are you having grilled cheese today? What are you doing to spice it up?

Fireman Playtime From Wholesale Halloween Costumes

Disclosure:No formal compensation was received. A product was provided for my review.

I have 2 daughters and a son, my daughters love to play dress up and my son is kind of left out. He is more about playing the cop or Fireman hero type. So I finally got him a Fireman Costume to play in and he loves it.

Screen Shot 2015-04-10 at 3.01.46 PM

This inspirational Firefighters Child Ensemble consists of the following pieces: fireman’s jacket with reflective striping and metal clasps, cargo styled pants, chief’s badge and a fireman’s helmet.

The outfit was so cute on him and he didn’t want to take it off at all.


The complete outfit just comes so well together. The pants are actually overalls or suspenders like a real firefighter, so you don’t have to worry about him pulling up his pants often or being to big. The jacket can open and can velcro with latches. To complete the look their is a fireman’s helmet with badge in the front.


The jacket has thumb holes to keep the sleeves snug. I love the reflectors on the pants and jacket, it’s great for play or trick or treating at night.

In addition to this costume Wholesale Halloween costumes has tons of new costumes for the 2015 year. Some of the new costumes are gowns from the movie Cinderella, New Avenger costumes for boys, or accessorize your costumes with new wigs, wands, shoes and more.

Science Fair Fun

For the past two years my daughters have taken part in the school science fair. The love it and get to experiment like their dad does everyday.

All their friends say that their science projects are good because their dad is a scientist. Thats not true at all, we strongly believe that they need to do the work on their own to achieve and learn. So the only thing I ever help with are ideas and pictures, The rest is all them.




The science Fair had so many wonderful projects and great information.

My oldest actually won 1st place for the 4th grade.

Shopkins Slap Bands Are So Much Fun

Disclosure: No formal compensation was received for this post. Products were provided for my review.

Shopkins have only been on the market for about a year, but they are already my children’s favorite toy. They play with them day and night. If your kids do love them, well then of course you know how hard they are to find. It gets pretty crazy!

Now, there is a new Shopkins item on the market just in time for Easter. Shopkins Slap Bands are the new it item. Once I see them in store they are gone within 10 minutes.

There are 8 different bands featuring your favorite shopkins characters, like Lippy Lips, Pineapple Crush, Soda Pops and more.


The Shopkins Slap Bands are very sturdy and don’t break, unless of course you bend them and roll them the wrong way. I was telling my kids about loving slap bands when I was younger but they were flimsy and made of really cheap material. The Shopkins Slap Bands are very sturdy and you can even throw them from a short distance and they attach to the arm.


My kids just love showing them off and everyone asks where they can get them.

Shopkins Slap Bands are available at select retailers that you can find here.

The DoveKeepers 4 Hour Event On CBS

Disclosure: This is a sponsored by the Role Mommy Writer’s Network.

I have been reading the book The DoveKeepers and it’s really really good. I have been so into it I can hardly put the book down. Their is so much excitement and adventure, it leaves you on the edge of your seat. Although it’s based on a story from 2,000 years ago, the story some how feels as it is modern.

The Dovekeepers

Now that I am into the book, I am looking forward to The DoveKeepers 4 hour event series on CBS. It is going to be epic!

The Dovekeepers

Set in ancient Israel, The DoveKeepers is based on the true events at Masada in 70 C.E. After being forced out of their home in Jerusalem by the Romans, 900 Jews were ensconced in a fortress at Masada, a mountain in the Judean desert. Besieged at Masada, the Jews held out for months against the vast Roman armies. The project will recount the events from the perspective of a few extraordinary women who arrive at Masada with unique backstories, but a common bond for survival. Additionally, these women, who work together daily as dovekeepers, are all concealing substantial secrets.

You can watch The DoveKeepers two day mini series on CBS Tuesday March 31 and Wednesday April 1, 2015

Time:9:00 PM-11:00PM

Get more information on the series by following The DoveKeepers
