Green Giant Raise a Giant

I've spoke a handful of times on here about the issues my family has had with bullies. Unfortunately one of the hardest things that kids have to deal with is bullying. Being bullied by a peer can turn school from a learning environment to nothing short of a daily torture chamber. That’s why Green Giant® is partnering with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center and We Day Minnesota to help parents Raise A Giant and put a stop to bullying in their community.
     Now you might be wondering what it meas to "Raise a Giant." We aren't talking about raising a child that is bigger and better then everyone else. What being a giant means standing up for others, lending a hand to those who are in trouble and speaking up for those who sometimes find it hard to speak up for themselves. Studies have shown that an effective way to stop bullying is for kids to simply speak up and say, “That’s not okay” when they see bullying happening. But asking kids to have the…

All Aboard! THE POLAR EXPRESS comes to life this holiday season as the West Texas & Lubbock Railroad rolls out of the station bound for the “North Pole!” Come early and climb aboard with your family to cozy-up and enjoy our festively-decorated vintage train cars. Dancing chefs deliver hot chocolate and a cookie to each guest to savor while music from the Polar Express movie plays en route to the North Pole.

Gorton's #WickedGoodSeafood Review and Giveaway

As a blogger there is nothing better then a fun review, especially when it involves food. Recently I was invited to join the Gorton's Blogger Crew to help get the word out about their products. Now I won't lie when my package came in the mail I was a little more then concerned about how this was going to go. Let me set the scene....It is 110 degrees outside and you come home to and check the mail.....in an envelope you get this:
     HAHA yeah that was my first thought to....welp guess I'm not doing this review! After a moment I got online to chat with some fellow bloggers that have joined with me on the crew and discovered this wasn't scary not at all! Infact Gorton's made this review awesome and fun! Here is what was inside my crew's pack:
     So loaded with coupons to try their products, so I am able to share with my fans. Recipe cards to help me with some new ideas, post cards, a key chain, and an adorable UBS drive(the little fisherman) I was more then…

Angry Birds Star Wars II Telepods Review and Giveaway *ended*

It is amazing to think that it is already time to start thinking about Christmas again. With 3 children it always amazes me the things that are out there these days to play with. Recently I was given a chance to review a new game from Hasbro called Angry Birds Star Wars II Telepods. Angry Birds have been a very popular item in our house since they flew onto the scene, and well we love Star Wars as well so my kids were more then ready to help review this game!
       Angry Birds Star Wars II Telepods was so fun, it brought to life the games that the children enjoy playing on the phone, and while we love playing on the phone, sometimes I think it is so important to actually interact with your children. You have different characters that you can launch to take out Darth Pig, and best of all you are able to build and design his evil fortress however you chose to!
       My 6 year old couldn't get it to stand up big and fancy like it the pictures but she really wanted me to show y…

Stealing Those Extra Moments #sharewhatsgood

“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Welch's. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”
      With school time brings less family time. Between school, sports, and other after school activities it seems like every day get busier and busier. Sometimes it seems like I barely get to see my family. Recently when I was invited to participate in an event from Welch's it got me thinking....how do I steal those extra moments of time with my family?
     One thing we always make sure to do is eat dinner together as a family. I don't think anything is more important to me then to be able to sit down together and least once a day. It gives me the chance to find out how school was, my husband's day at work, and even what is on their mind. It never ceases to amaze me the things children will tell you if you only ask. What are some ways that you steal time with your family? How do you steal those little extra moments in your fami…
