Safety 1st Complete Air Convertible Car Seat

This review was written Autumn of 2009. We still love our Air Protect! Over the past twenty years, side impact crashes have dramatically increased and today they seem to be the deadliest kind of crashes children can be involved in. According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the vast majority of theseContinue Reading

This review was written Winter 2009. The piano is still a hit today! We are big fans of Melissa & Doug toys. They continue to bring well made classics to the younger generation; wooden toys designed with primary colors, doll houses, and pretend accessories. Jayden has a few of their wooden vehicles and puzzles. ToContinue Reading

Guidecraft Train Toy Box

We recently received a very special train toy box for Jayden courtesy of Guidecraft. We were excited to replace our old toy storage for something more practical. The toy storage we had been using wasn’t able to accommodate his larger toys and its bins spent more time on the floor rather than on the racks;Continue Reading

I received this gorgeous Gardenia Bonsai tree courtesy of ProFlowers.com. I was able to choose from quite a selection of bonsai trees and although it was a tough decision, I narrowed my choice down to this beauty because it is very easy to care for despite its exotic appearance. It will thrive happily in anyContinue Reading

Personal Microderm System

I’ve seen quite a few commercials for microderabration products and I’ve seen a selection in stores. I’ve always thought to myself hmm that seems cool, but I’m not old enough for that. In the commercials, the main focus would be on firming the skin and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. And well, I have neither.Continue Reading

Eureka Clean Living Vac: Functional & Affordable

Our first vacuum was a little $30 Dirt Devil we purchased in college. We never considered replacing the lil’ Dirt Devil with something more powerful until having a kid who turned into a major crumb magnet. I had tested some Dyson vacuums and explored the beauty of them, drooled and wished to have such aContinue Reading

Bissell Steam Mop Cleans Naturally

I’ve been looking for a new mop because I haven’t been satisfied with the mops I’ve been using. I’ve been wanting a mop that I could reuse for years. One that wouldn’t require constant replacing of the mop itself or parts attached to it. One that would lift the dirt and naturally sanitize my floors.Continue Reading

Wooden Gifts That Say I Love You

It’s so rare that Greg and I do things for ourselves, buy things for ourselves, even review things for ourselves. When I say ourselves, I mean as in the both of us as a couple, not individually – although we have put ourselves on the backburners as individuals too. I had the opportunity to chooseContinue Reading

Fisher Price Follow Me Thomas

“Wooo wooo!” is what Jayden exclaims as the train near our house passes by. Jayden loves trains, specifically Thomas and his friends.

Holiday Zippo Candle Lighter Collection

I enjoy scented candles all year ’round, but when it comes to lighting them, I’m not so prepared. I light my new jar candles with a mini lighter and as the wick begins to shorten, I always have a problem lighting them. I’ve lit longer wicks and even thin rolls of paper to light theContinue Reading
