Sending Love & Cheer This Holiday Season With Minted (GIVEAWAY)

11 Oct

I love receiving Holiday cards from friends and family.  At the end of the season we create a Holiday book with all the beautiful cards we receive.  I also love sending cards but every year I wait until the last-minute to do my Holiday cards.  This year I got a head start, thanks to a photo session with Big Apple Portraits (review coming soon). Now that I have photos, choosing my favorite picture and then finding the right card is my biggest challenge (see below for Minted Giveaway)

A Fun Father’s Day Adventure and @Safety_1st Car Seat #Giveaway

11 Jun

Father’s Day is quickly approaching.  I’ve tried to find a fun adventure for the entire family (grandpa’s included).  As I was talking with a friend, I remembered our trip to the Grand Prix New York Go Kart Raceway a few years ago for my husbands birthday.  We didn’t bring the kids with us because we didn’t know what to expect or if it was kid friendly. While I was there, I wish I had brought them so they could cheer on their dad as he raced.  There was a bouncy castle, arcade games, bowling and more for them to enjoy as well.  This is definitely on my list for a fun Father’s day adventure!

IMG_4173

With Racing on the mind, did you know that Safety 1st’s car seats incorporate the same technology that protects high performance drivers? As a leader in safety innovation, the patented technology is called GCell HX™.  Combined with Safety 1st Air Protect Technology, it provides full body safety protection in the event of a crash. Below are two new Safety 1st car seats that incorporate GCell HX, so dad’s little one can ride with the same technology as a racecar driver:

The Safety 1st onBoard Air 35 Air + infant car seat allows your child to ride rear facing from 4-25 pounds. It’s equipped with a 5-point harness, adjustable stay in the car base and Carry Curve™ Handle with an ergonomic design. 

Picture 16

The Safety 1st Advance SE 65 Air + convertible car seat ensures your child is safe from 5-65 pounds. Better yet, it meets the new requirements for the new 65 Pound LATCH rule.

The Dorel Juvenile Group (maker of Safety 1st) is based in Columbus, IN where its step stools, potties, car seat bases and child safety products are 100% made in the USA. Check out the brands recent feature on AOL’s This Built America to learn more about the company.

Balance Bar mini energy bars (Review & GIVEAWAY)

18 Aug

20130818-002843.jpg

It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over and my girls head back to school in a few weeks! Heading back-to-school means packing lunches and snacks for dance, soccer practice, play-dates and “snack week” responsibilities. I have tried to think of filling snacks that they will enjoy. I recently tried the Balance Bar mini energy bars which contain 7 grams of protein, 100 calories and 23 vitamins and minerals. The bars are soft, flavorful, satisfying, filling and easy to eat. They are the perfect size for kids or even parents who need a little something to hold them over while on-the-go. A bite of the cookie dough reminded me of the days I used to sneak bites of raw cookie dough while baking with my mom..yumm. The double chocolate is just as delicious for all the chocolate lovers out there. Unfortunately my oldest didn’t try them because they are produced on equipment that also processes peanuts, tree nuts, egg, wheat and sesame but my youngest is so excited to pack them in her Itzy Ritzy snack bag (to be featured in an upcoming food storage post).

Are you ready for back-to-school? Balance Bar® in partnership with the Macaroni Kid parent network surveyed more than 5,000 parents of schoolaged children and found that 61% of parents thought that Fall (aka Back to School) is the busiest time of year for their families.

What else did they find from this survey? Check it out:

• 77% of parents said they have 3 or more activities/events per week on average once school starts.

• 80% of respondents said once school starts, they will be planning more meals and attending more sporting events for their kids.

• And 57% of parents said they try to have one meal together each day as a family to help balance their schedules.

• 79% of parents reported that they pack their kids’ school lunches.

To help parents, Macaroni Kid provided some tips on how to better prepare for a school day and balance everyone’s schedules:

• Do a run through. Are your kids starting a new school or a new routine? Do a run through. Wake up “school time,” brush teeth, get dressed, pack lunch, have a schoolappropriate breakfast and maybe even drive or walk to school. Then, take those packed lunches and head to the park for a final summer break picnic.

• Plan the menus. Give your kids several options in each category and let them weigh in on what they’d like to find in their lunch boxes… you won’t have to guess each morning and they are far more likely to eat it if they’ve had a hand in selecting it. We love Balance Bar® minis to pack along for snacks!

• Clean your closets! Nothing gets you and the kids ready for smooth mornings like purged, well-organized closets.

• Start a good sleep routine early. Kids love to stay up late in the summer time (and who can blame them) but it makes for tougher mornings if kids are used to going to bed later and sleeping in past “school time” wake up.

• Set goals with your children for the upcoming school year. Whether it’s academics, sports, or extracurricular activities it’s great to help kids get motivated for success in the new school year.

Interested in hearing more tips on how to balance your schedule come this Fall? Join Balance Bar® Tuesday, August 20 at 2:00 PM EST/11:00 AM PST for a live, one-hour Twitter chat.
