Sneak Some Me Time Into Your Day! #MomSneak #StreamTeam @Netflix #Ad

    Let's be completely honest, being a mom is not easy although it is very rewarding.  One of the more difficult aspects of motherhood is hardly ever getting any time to yourself.  Believe it or not, 97% of mothers feel that they had a lot more time to themselves before becoming mothers.  Me time is a luxury for most.     The reality is that most of us spend the majority of our time juggling busy schedules, holding down the fort at home, and just looking forward to even one moment of peace that we can enjoy by ourselves.  Now don't get me wrong, this does not mean that we do not love our children, it simply means that we sometimes need a break.     So how do we sneak some me time into our day you ask?  In my home, I can often be found smuggling a tablet into the bathroom to watch some of my favorite shows on Netflix.  Since you can stream your favorite movies and television programs on Netflix on just about any device, you can execute a mom sneak just about anywhere.     I highly … [Read more...]

Play Snoopy Pop Game With Your Family! #SnoopyPop @PlaySnoopyPop #Giveaway #Ad

    My family loves to play games and have fun together.  These moments allow us to make precious memories with one another and provide opportunities for us to escape from our hectic weekly schedules involving school and work throughout the year.  Since we are also huge Peanuts fans, we were thrilled to have the opportunity to review Snoopy Pop, the all-new bubble shooter game featuring all of our favorite characters including Snoopy, Woodstock, and the rest of the gang.     Of course, my husband and sons learned how to play the game right away since they are gaming aficionados and often play games on their electronic devices.  I was a little worried that it would take me a long time to get the gist of how to play Snoopy Pop but is was surprisingly easy.     Basically, the premise of the game is that players have to help Snoopy and the rest of the beloved Peanuts characters rescue Woodstock and his flock of bird friends who have been trapped in bubbles.  The bubbles are color … [Read more...]

Introducing Anne With An E On Netflix! #StreamTeam #Giveaway @Netflix #Ad

    Are you ready for the exciting next chapter in Netflix content?  I am so excited about being a part of celebrating the debut of the Netflix original series, Anne With an E, based on the beloved book series Anne of Green Gables.  As a Literacy Specialist, I always enjoy when some of my favorite books are made into television series that different generations can enjoy and fall in love with.     Anne With an E is a coming-of-age story about an outsider who, against all odds and many challenges, fights for love and acceptance and her place in the world. Set in Prince Edward Island in the late 1890s, the series centers on Anne Shirley (Amybeth McNulty), a young orphaned girl who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an aging sister and brother.     Over time, 13-year-old Anne will transform the lives of Marilla (Geraldine James) and Matthew Cuthbert (R.H. Thomson) and eventually the entire small town in which they … [Read more...]

Have Confidence In Your Tap Water! @ZeroWaterFilter #Giveaway #Ad

    I have to be honest with you guys, I'm not that confident in our tap water.  It's hard to ignore all of  the reports about chemicals such as Chromium 6 and Lead continuously popping up in the news threatening the drinking water in cities across the country.  Both contaminants are blamed for everything from birth defects and neurological disorders to organ deterioration and cancer.  It's scary to think that my family could be exposed to these toxins from our drinking water.     Most people either purchase expensive water filtration systems or spend billions of dollars on bottled water each year.  If you start to think about how many empty bottles of water you recycle or have lying around in your car you will realize how quickly this expense can add up!  Not to mention all the waste that is being produced from all of these discarded plastic bottles.  Factor in that you're still not getting the purest water possible. There is a better option.     ZeroWater offers an easy-to-use … [Read more...]
