    We live in an old house with three enclosed porches. One porch has stairs which have been very slippery and caused quite a few “skating down the stairs” incidents. When Handi-Treads asked if I’d like to review their product, I said “of course!” For some reason, I thought they were going to be […]

More Baby Stuff I’m Loving…

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

1. I ordered a muslin swaddling blanket on Etsy. It was perfect for the hot days. We draped it over the car seat to keep the sun off his face. We wrapped him in it and he was snuggly without being hot. It’s a good photo backdrop too! I wish I had ordered a few […]

Merino Kids Sleep Sack~Review

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

  I was contacted by Merino Kids and asked to review their sleep sack. Sleep sacks weren’t really anything I knew about when James was a baby, but I had been thinking that I needed to find a few for winter  for Nathan. Our home is cool and we live in cold country so I […]

Baby Products I’m Loving!

Monday, August 5th, 2013

As you can imagine, the baby equipment world is so different than it was when James was a baby. I’ve been blessed to receive lots of wonderful hand me downs from a friend who is done with babies. We didn’t have to purchase anything big for baby. Here are a few things we’ve been using […]

Lilla Rose Flexi Clip~Review

Friday, July 12th, 2013

  My hair is very fine and straight.  I have trouble keeping anything in my hair! I have a barrette that I’m pretty obsessive about because it doesn’t slide out of my hair. I bought this barrette sometime around my college years–which means it’s at least 20-25 years old. I basically watch over it with […]

Minted Baby Products~

I was perusing their site the other night to see what they have for baby announcements. I love their designs and wish I was so talented. I discovered that they have more than just baby announcements! Minted […]

Math Mammoth~Options for Grades 1-8~TOS Review

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

We were given the opportunity to review Math Mammoth’s BlueSeries. This series is worktexts–it explains as well as problems for the student to work on–it’s like a textbook workbook in one. The Blue Series concentrates on a few topics so you can use it to supplement other math programs. The Blue series is not designed […]

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

We were able to review Knowledge Quest’s  Sacagawea book written by Karla Akins. This book  is part of their Brave Explorers You Should Know series. I signed up for this review because I thought she was a historical figure we needed to know more about. It’s always great to have another person to add to our Book of […]
