Are you looking for a quick and simple DIY Mother’s Day idea? Well, look no further than this beautiful flower frame.

Mothers-Day-Flower-Frame-01

As I tossed and turned the other night, I felt the craft bug creep into my system. I was literally thinking about what to make for National Donut Day and all of a sudden, this idea sparked. And let me just say, I’m so glad it did because it came out super cute!

Being a Mom is hard work. We are alarm clocks, nurses, referees, housekeepers, taxis, counselors and the list goes on! In my book, it’s Mother’s Day every day. But when Mother’s Day rolls around and you realize you have less than a week to find something to give, the going gets tough!Continue Reading

Butterfly Clothespin Craft for Kids and Orkin Mosquito Summer Scientist Giveaway

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Orkin. All opinions and views are my own.

Butterfly-Clothespin-Craft-01

Summer is almost here! It’s so close, I can smell it and Bunbun and I are counting down the days. It’s been a rather rough school year and both of us are just about ready for it to be done. With that said, we’re ready for some fun and new beginnings. Summer for us brings lots of friends, crafts, swimming, BBQ’s, soccer training camp and lots of outdoor fun!

The one thing that always seems to get us in the summer is mosquitoes! They are annoying little creatures that seem to always find us. Bunbun has some pretty bad reactions to mosquito bites so we always have to be on top of the situation.  Fortunately, the experts at Orkin study the science of mosquitoes and other pests closely in order to better tailor plans that help keep them out of our homes this summer.Continue Reading

Get ready for the Holidays with BISSELL and BISSELL ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Giveaway

I am cringing just thinking about all the company we will have over the next couple months. My house definitely isn’t in order and the couches are so embarrassing. Between having a 6 year old and a 3 year old, things can get pretty messy around here. Add a 70lb. Boxer to that equation and you have a disaster zone!

We allow the kids to eat in the living room, but I have to say that they really aren’t that messy. Most of the spots and stains on the couch are a result of Sophie either drooling or continuously licking her big ol’ paws. And possibly coming in from outside with wet paws from either the rain or pool deck.

Our couches, while they may be old, have the potential to be new again. Time and time again, I have used my BISSELL carpet cleaner (previous model) and they look amazing. When we were offered a chance to try out BISSELL’s ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet, I just couldn’t say no! I am so excited to tell you about how it worked for us and give you a chance to win a BISSELL product bundle as well!


BISSELL’s ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet takes the hassle out of deep cleaning. When it comes to tackling everyday messes, either from the kids or the fur babies, most are often challenged with choosing between a quick refresh or a deep clean based on their time constraints.

The BISSELL ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet offers multiple cleaning modes, combining dual DirtLifter brushes with heated cleaning and powerful suction for a solid deep-down clean. It also comes with BISSELL Deep Clean + Antibacterial formula, which deep cleans and controls odor-causing bacteria. Great for homes with dogs, like ours…

With a lightweight design and low-profile foot, weighing only 18 pounds, the ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet allows for easy maneuverability when cleaning carpets. The Dual Powerbrushes feature 12 total cleaning rows for a deep down clean along with two different cleaning modes, an express clean mode and deep clean mode which delivers professional-style results when used in conjunction with the BISSELL Professional Formulas

In my case, the detachable hose is my best friend. It is absolutely perfect for cleaning upholstery, carpeted stairs, and spot cleaning area rugs around the house. And the best part; for every purchase of the BISSELL ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet, BISSELL will donate $10 to the BISSELL Pet Foundation to help America’s homeless pets.

I definitely enjoyed using the BISSELL ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet and plan to continue using it regularly to maintain the cleanliness of our couches. I loved how easy the machine was to use and how affordable the formula was. It certainly makes cleaning a breeze and doesn’t break the bank!

Big difference, right? Check out the BISSELL ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Here!

Savings at Publix: Back to School Superhero Snack Station

Back to School Superhero Snack Station with Free Superhero Girls Printable

Week two of first grade brought homework. And lot’s of it! Bunbun has 10 spelling words, reading homework and a cute little about me poster project to complete. Last week, I purchased a new desk for myself and gave her my old one. I set her up with a little writing/art station using a bin I had purchased a while back. I took advantage of the back to school Savings at Publix and stocked up on some crayons, markers, colored pencils, glue sticks and scissors as well. I added scrap paper to another compartment and voila! Bunbun loves her new little set-up and it allows her to be creative with no restrictions on art mediums.

Watermelon Kiwi Popsicles

Happy Popsicle Week!!!  I am super late with this post but we have been enjoying my grandmother visiting us. We wrapped up an amazing Birthday week for Bunbun, filled with lots of fun in the sun and swimming in the pool.

One of the ways we keep cool on our hot summer days here in South Florida is by eating watermelon. It’s a cool snack, packed with water to keep us hydrated and the kids love it!

Chalkboard signs have been all the craze lately. You literally see them in every cake smash and birthday milestone photo sessions. And most recently; baby showers, engagements and even wedding receptions. They can get pretty expensive to purchase online due to the customization, but it’s actually super easy to make your own.

Perler Bead Bowl Craft


Perler Beads. Most of us have them. They only bother me when I step on a straggler every now and again. Otherwise, they have been pretty good to me. If I need to get something done or need a few minutes of peace and quiet, I whip out the Perler Beads. They allow my little ones to be creative and create their own masterpieces. I am always amazed at their concentration level every single time!

This craft is so simple that anyone can pretty much make it. We have buckets of Perler Beads (yes, buckets) and they’re fairly inexpensive so this is something you can do time and time again, without breaking the bank.
