Escape From Planet Earth $25 Visa Gift Card & Movie Pack Giveaway-Ends 2/13 + Free Printables

If you've been around this blog for awhile, you'll know I love animated movies, probably more than kids do.  I'm all about the animation, tween drama, and innocent humor!  So when I heard about Escape From Planet Earth, I had to check out what it was all about.  When I watched the trailer, it already had me laughing and just itching to see more.  I read the synopsis and found out that Brendan Fraser was part of the cast...I have to say, I really like movies that he's in because most of them are really funny but don't involve adult or dirty humor!  I can't wait to see it when it releases on February 15th and since Honey is such a sci-fi fanatic, I am sure he will love watching it too!  Below you will find the movie synopsis, trailer, free Valentine's Day printables and a GIVEAWAY!!!!  You can enter and find details for the giveaway at the bottom of this posting! Synopsis: The 3D animated family comedy catapults … [Read more...]

Just Between Friends: Consignment For The Money Conscious & Busy Individuals

Have you ever thought about having a yard sale or garage sale to get rid of all that excess stuff piling up in the garage...and sometimes throughout the home?!  What if you don’t even have a garage or a yard to host a sale?!  Too busy to set one up?  Well, I came across Just Between Friends, the largest children’s and maternity consignment sales event and they are definitely the solution for our family!   I had seen them in the years past but didn’t want to consign because I was too busy to get my things ready, price all my items, and bring them during the designated hours.  But last year, Just Between Friends in San Mateo (that’s the one closest to my home) did something different, they started a valet tagging program!  That sounds luxurious doesn’t?!  Well, for those of us that have little time to spare but lots of baby and maternity items to rid ourselves of, this was a great option!  Before we delve into … [Read more...]

Have you ever had trouble finding items personalized with your name or a name of someone you're trying to buy a gift for?  Or what about gifts personalized with names but are items that you would never want to spend money on because they are so cheesy looking?  Let me introduce you to Initials, Inc, a company that  specializes in personalized products and gifts.  What's even better than their affordable prices is personalization is always FREE! When I was first sent the link by Tiffany Ahmann, who is a Kangaroo Mama blog fan, teacher of the deaf, independent consultant for Initials and now friend, I was in love!  First of all, I love personalized gifts because it really shows someone you thought about them when you selected the gift and they know it wasn't a re-gift!  What I also love is that I can have Kiggster's name on items when I know I'll never find it pre-personalized in a store!  It's kind of hard to find Rayne … [Read more...]

Kelly Kits Monthly Art Play Subscription Review and FLASH GIVEAWAY

I have to admit, I didn't actually consider doing regular art times with Kiggster until I saw a service called Kelly Kits that allows you to subscribe for monthly art shipments.  I was intrigued but was also a bit skeptical if it was going to be something I could use with her since she wasn't even 2 yet. However, they assured me that it would still be great at her age (about 20 months old at that time) but it would just be less structured than if it was an older child.  Their website recommends the kits for kids aged 2-102 years old so I think almost everyone is covered in that age range!  So I was given the opportunity to review one month of their service.  The month I was sent the review, they were doing printmaking art kits, Sponge & Stamp, and below is a picture of everything that came in the kit: Before I delve into the kit I received, I'd like to tell you a little bit more about Kelly Kits first. Kelly Kits encourage art play using a … [Read more...]
