New Products from Happy Family! *Review and Giveaway*

I am so pleased to announce some new products that have just hit the Happy Family website.  As a huge fan of Happy Family, and their products, I was absolutely thrilled to give these products a try and let you all know what I think of them.

We have the new HappyTot – Apple Cinnamon Yogurt and Oats and the Banana Blueberry Yogurt and Oats.  Once again you have quality products from a quality company, with ingredients you can rely on.  The one allergy notice is Milk; but for my Gluten Free boy we are in the clear.   These items have organic fruits, whole grain oats and whole milk.  HappyTot morning also contains “Salba the SUPER chia,” which is slightly different then a regular chia seed.  It is organically grown exclusively on one farm and more nutritionally dense then other chia seeds.  I personally liked the banana blueberry, but they are both quite yummy.

These are a great, healthy options for moms on the go in the mornings – getting and taking your older ones to school, or on a morning when you have an early doctor’s appointment.  What I love about the Happy Family line is that I don’t have to sacrifice health for ease.  Sometimes we are just too busy in life, but that doesn’t mean our littlest ones have to sacrifice.  Happy Family provides options for a healthy morning.

You can purchase these items on the Happy Family site, or on Amazon.  You also should be able to soon, if not already, find them on the shelves of your local Target store.

But one of my lucky readers has the chance to win a case, with eight of each flavor in it, of the new HappyTot morning SuperFood pouches!

Good Luck

CVS, Pampers and the Holiday Season…..

If you’ve read my blog for any length of time you might know that I cloth diaper.  Its true I do.  But there is occasions when I use disposables.  I’m not perfect and I don’t pretend to be.  I really enjoy cloth diapering and I will be the first one in line to tell you to give it a try and that it isn’t as hard as it seems.  But sometimes it doesn’t work for everyone and sometimes it just doesn’t work for me!  Because lets be real….sometimes as moms we don’t have it all together.  Sometimes we leave the house and we wonder if the curling iron is still on.  Many times I’ve gone to the store, come home with a pile of groceries, only to discover that I didn’t even look in my refrigerator or freezer and discover that not only do I now have two of almost everything, but there is absolutely no where to stick anything into my freezer…whoops!!!  You know what’s awesome though…that’s okay.

 A healthy supply of Pampers at our local CVS

The Holiday season is prime “not having it all together” time.  Presents to wrap, cookies and pies to bake, grocery shopping and large meals to make.  We had some guests coming over so I was making sure I had enough of my fancy plates (I love using my wedding china) and enough chairs for everyone.  What I don’t want to be worrying about is my diapers, and what if the stores are open, or I have clean ones (my cloth ones).  I know my friendly neighborhood CVS will be open on those major holidays for any emergency that might pop up.  Why?  Because life happens and you gotta be real yo!  I also happen to love CVS because they are the ONLY place that has USAA atms.

Pampers are not diapers I’m super familiar with, other than the Swaddlers newborn size that the hospital uses and I used when my littles were their tiniest.  Recently I have been seeing the commercials for Swaddlers being carried in larger sizes, which I have to say is pretty cool.  Those are nifty diapers.  Name brand diapers are really expensive, but usually you get what you pay for.  I have been pretty impressed with the ones I’ve used so far.  I feel like they are brand new to me since its been forever since I used them.  You will usually find me skimping on the diapers….however you will never find me skimping on wipes.  I always shell out the big dough for wipes.  I love the Pampers Sensitive wipes….love love love them!  I snagged up the small pack with the adorable Giraffe’s on them.  What I appreciate about smaller stores like CVS is that its easy.  Its not a humongous parking lot, teeny tiny aisles packed with people.  I can run in and out with relative ease if facing the Commissary or my local grocery store is just too much for my fragile mom-mind to handle.  They may not have every single type of every single brand…but they will have the basics of what I need, and that is something I’m thankful for!

Make sure to enter to win a coupon so you can snag up your own free diapers and wipes from Pampers!!!

also, if you get a moment could you please go and like a new organization I am a getting behind.  They are doing their part to help clothe children in need in the VA/MD/DC area!  We need to help spread the word and get them some likes on Facebook!!! Thank you so much!!!

Christmas Gift Guide 2013: Evie Doo’s Boutique

Who doesn’t love handmade stuff, WAHM and all that small business stuff?  I love to support my fellow WAHM/Etsy mom’s when possible.  This particular WAHM is a fellow milspouse and my friend.  She has adorable kids, and adorable items in her shop.

her littlest cutie in an EvieDoo’s Diaper
yes, she makes CDs!

This summer I gave her the task of embroidering some shirts for my son’s 7th birthday.  We were in California visiting family, and we wanted shirts for all of our kids with a Star Wars Theme.  She delivered, and look how cute it is.  Five months later the embroidery still looks amazing and the kids frequently ask to wear them.

You can get just about anything at Evie Doo’s Boutique.  She makes wipes, shirts, flannel pants, dresses, blankets and tons more!  We recently tried out one of her really cute new sweatshirts for Miss Ami.  These are made from a fleece, which is incredibly warm and soft.  The sizing is really true to size.  We got it in a 6, which is a smidge big for Ami, but seeing as how she’s been in a 5T for awhile now I was hoping to avoid a sudden growth spurt grow out of everything moment.  The embroidery, like the other items I own is wonderful; and the Christmas design is beautiful.  I also really liked the font.  It went well with the theme.

and this is Evie Doo!  ain’t she cute 🙂

 Ami rocking her “A” shirt!

And now you have the opportunity to win your very own customized hoodie, a $30.00!
Seriously, ain’t I awesome?!  Just kidding…but seriously right?!
Good Luck!!
