Nail Files Mobile Spa Event: In San Francisco On 8/6/2012

nail_files_logo

Update on 7/28/2012: I just found out several more dates in the Mobile Spa Bus schedules and a revised air date for Season 2, along with the new spa bus photos.  See revised posting below for updated information.   So I just found out about a free event coming to San Francisco, CA on Monday August 6th and it sounds pretty awesome!  Who doesn't love a free manicure with eco-friendly nail polishes in a decked out spa bus?!  I am dying to get pampered and this will be a great excuse to get the girls together to show some love for those overworked hands! Plus it will be a great chance to get hyped up for Season 2 of the reality TV show series, Nail Files.  I admit, I hadn't watched Season 1 or heard of the show prior to this event but have been catching clips of it recently and I am determined to watch all of Season 1 before Season 2 starts on August 19th.  You can catch up on Season 1 starting this Sunday on TV Guide Network with 2 … [Read more...]

SoftBums Omni Shell & Super Pods Review & Giveaway

P1050920

So I have definitely been on the look out for a good night time diaper for Kiggster because she tends to have these "epic" leakages at night, maybe because she drinks most of her liquids at night time rather than day time.  For most of her diapers, I have to double insert the pocket diapers and even sometimes that still isn't quite enough.  So when I was given the chance to do a review of the SoftBums Omni Shell, I jumped at the chance to review their Super Pod!  I chose the SoftBums Omni Velcro Shell with the Super Pod insert in the Giraffe print. So what makes SoftBums stand out from the rest?! SoftBums Omni Features: SoftBums Patent Pending Slide²Size is the ONLY variable adjustment of its kind Fits all legs widths from 4" - 14" for NO red marks EVER.  Made in the USA! Choose your own Pods for a customized diapering system! SoftBums Omni is larger than an Echo to more easily cover prefolds, … [Read more...]

SuperUndies Training Pants Review & Giveaway

Super Undies 2

Can you believe we're talking about potty training Kiggster?  We started awhile back when she showed signs but now that she's approaching 2, we really want to stay consistent.  So that means surrounding ourselves with tools that make it easier to do so.  I was given the opportunity to review the Super Undies Pull-On Training Pants in Infrared Racer. Super Undies sells Pull-On, Pocket and Nighttime Training Pants to fit every family's needs.  I had a hard time deciding which one to choose at first for my review because it seemed like there was a need for all three of them in one's potty training collection.  The Nighttime training pant would be needed for the big overnight jobs, but since Kiggster is still pretty young and I don't think I can get her to wake us up in the middle of the night to go potty, we decided not to go for that one just yet.  Then there's the Pocket training pant that have snaps on the sides to … [Read more...]

Kangaroo Mama is Forging a New Path

Rest of My Life-Best Of My Life

It seems like it's been awhile since I last posted something "personal" on here.  I think my last one was New Beginnings: Light At The End Of The Tunnel and I had just made the decision to resign from my position at my job so that I could stay home with Kiggster.  I have to say, that was probably the best decision I could have made because I actually felt a small load get lifted from my shoulders.  Although, at that time, Honey and I still weren't too sure what we wanted our future to look like, except for the fact that we wanted Kiggster to be raised into a godly young woman and for us to strengthen the foundation of our marriage.  So I continued to keep the doors open for new opportunities career-wise but not actively seeking for it.  Although it seemed like recruiters were calling me left and right with the "perfect" opportunities…you know, the ones that didn't arise when I was trying to escape from my old job?!  … [Read more...]
