Thanks Hasbro for sponsoring today’s post!
Recently Hasbro sent me some toys to try out with my kids and have I said lately how much we love Hasbro?! They always have great toys that are great quality and full of fun. My kids can be hard on their toys but I feel like the Hasbro toys really stand up to my kids wear and tear. I want you to check out the below toys and if your kids have a birthday coming up, you need a reward for their good work in school or just a I love you gift, check out these toys below.
First up is the My Little Pony Esquestria Girls Minis rarity slumber party beauty set. Since I have 3 boys, my daughters doesn’t really like any of the hand me down toys so it’s a treat when she gets a girly toy. She is in love with this My Little Pony set. She even found an old bird house of mine and stores all the toys in there. I think it’s just because she doesn’t want her brothers to get their hands on it.
This set includes a doll, cat figure, and 10 accessories. It comes with makeup and hair styling accessories and provides hours of fun.

Next up is the perfect toy for my 8-year-old boy. He got to try out the Nerf Sports Dude perfectshot. We have a basketball goal outside but seeing as we just got 3 feet of snow in April, we have to find other ways to play sports inside for part of the year.
Last but not least is the Yo-Kai season 1 watch. My 2nd son loves Yo-Kai and this watch was right up his alley. The watch comes with 2 medals and when you use the watch with the medals, the Yo-kai watch plays sounds, music, and phrases. Insert one of the collectible medals displaying a Yo-kai into the watch to hear the character’s name, tribe song and more sounds.
This watch does not tell time but its full of fun. It’s an oversized watch so my son though it was super cool and way cooler than other watches he has had. If your kids likes Yo-Kai, this watch is a must have!

My husband and I rarely get a night out. It’s just our season in life with small kids and trying to stay on a budget so when we do it’s a special occasion. I put together a list of my Top 5 date night essentials you can’t go without! The most important is fresh breath so I headed over to King Soopers this week to pick up the new Extra® 35-stick pack. I bought both the Extra® Gum Spearmint and the Extra® Gum Polar Ice® because you can never have too much gum right?!
I found the gum in the checkout lane at King Soopers. It was easy to spot with the new bigger packs. King Soopers is our Kroger banner store here in Colorado so if you don’t live in Colorado, check out the Kroger store nearest you.
Here are my top 3 things you need on a date night. Sometimes we get to have one last-minute so these are the things you need in our purse at all times! I could go to the gym and my husband can unexpectedly want to go out and if I have these 3 things, I am ready to go!
Below is how I feel when we finally get a date night!
Now that you have your smells covered for your date night, don’t forget you don’t have to spend a lot of money going out on dates. It’s important to keep dating your spouse but we have found creative ways to spend time together on a budget.
Here are a few budget friendly date ideas:
Go see an older movie at the discount theater. In Denver they have a place called the Elvis cinema.
Find a show on Netflix to binge on. I highly recommend you drop everything and start watching The Blacklist. You won’t be able to stop so you have been warned.
Go for a hike! Since we live in Colorado this is easy for us but just even a walk with your honey can be fun.
Save up gift cards from birthdays and Christmas for a free night out!

Someone tell when did I wake up yo a 2-year-old?! It seems like yesterday we were bringing this boy home from the hospital. He is our 4th child and we have been through our fair share of diapers. I can’t believe we are almost done having kids in diapers. Through this last stretch, since I am such a busy mom, I have been buying diapers for Summit at Sam’s club. The last thing I need to worry about is running out of diapers. Not only is it convenient to stock up at Sam’s Club, but they have the Huggies Snug & Dry diapers we use at a fantastic price.
And when you have 4 kids close together like we did, you have to save wherever you can. And if you ever come to Colorado know that just because it’s April doesn’t mean we won’t get snow in Spring… over 30 inches and counting!
When you go to Sam’s club, the diapers are normally near the front of the store near the pharmacy. I found the Huggies Snug and Dry easily and the size we needed which is size 5. Here is a little tip for you if you are buying diapers for a baby shower. With all 4 of our kids we used size 3 for the longest time. So if you want to get someone some diapers and they have a new or young baby, go with that size!
I also want to include my Top 5 picks for a 2 year old’s diaper bag! These are the things we can’t do without when we are out and about.
I am going to leave you with one last tip. We have been trying to potty train my son for a while now and this week he decided he was ready. We have been practicing with him wearing a diaper then some underwear on top. He got used to the underwear and now we are going without a diaper unless it’s nap or bedtime. It’s good to keep some diapers on hand even when you are potty training in case the child can’t stay dry while asleep. But don’t worry they will get there!
If you need to renew of join Sam’s club, just click this link here and get to saving!
And someone please tell this 2-year-old bundle of energy to quit growing!
I was sent a dress for this review but all opinions are my own.
I have a very spunky little 5 year old girl, and she really doesn’t have a choice being surrounded by 3 boys. She has always been a girly girl and loves pink everything. However she is one tough chic and if she has her way, I can see her being an engineer like her daddy or pretty much anything she puts her mind to.
I am in love with these Princess Awesome dresses because they are unlike any girls dresses on the market. I was sent the blue and pink dress with dinosaurs on the bottom. Not only did my little girl love it, but her big brothers thought she was so cool wearing it!
I mean I love that my little girl loves dresses with pink crowns and hearts but I love the option to get her a dress with dinosaurs, robots or planes and they are still girly!
The dress fits amazing and I know I will be buying another style from Princess Awesome. They have tons of styles to choose from and even infant dresses so you have to check them out! With my little girl going to kindergarten this coming year, I told her we will have to buy her some back to school clothes and dresses from Princess-Awesome will be on our list.
Go to Princess-Awesome.com to find out more!
*I was given this watch for this review but all opinions are my own.
JORD Wood watches has done it again! They just came out with a brand new line of wood watches called the “Delmar Drift” line and I love them! My husband used to own a woodworking company so when I found out about these watches, even though he doesn’t own that business anymore, I knew he would love them.
This weekend I enlisted him to build me a barn down so he got back to his woodworking roots and built me the most beautiful door! While he was working I snuck a couple of pictures of him wearing this watch. This is a great gift for the man in your life. It’s a rugged yet sophisticated watch that will stand out from all the other watches.
With the new Delmar Drift line, they have lots of colors you can choose from so I guarantee you will find one for your man. As a thank you to JORD’s Delmar fans they have released a much requested, limited edition series, The Delmar Drift. JORD has paired Bamboo, Red Sandalwood, Dark Sandalwood, and Green Sandalwood with vivid carbon fiber faces in an arresting array of hue and grain.
You have to see the Dark sandalwood with Topaz watch. It is incredible!
