Water is Even More Fun with COOP Sports!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Even though it's not officially summer, when Memorial Day weekend comes it's also time for the summer break from school. That means fun times are ahead, and playing outside, as all parents know, is paramount during the warmer months. So too, is water play!! COOP combines the two with extra fun toys that hold up well in or out of the water. We recently put two of them to the test.

What's a Bada Board? Perfect for Summer Travel

Disclosure: We received a Bada Board to review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


When I first heard of the Bada Board, I thought it was going to be made of plastic. I'm not sure why the word 'board' in its name didn't tip me off that it was going to be cardboard (duh!) but just the same that's how it played out. So, I was surprised when it arrived, but still of course, decided to give it a go. Turns out being made of cardboard makes it perfect for tucking in and taking it wherever you go! We have folded ours and tucked it into the backseat car pocket when we've gone on trips, and used it for coloring, writing, a game of Bingo, and playing the DS. Some things are a lot easier to do when there is a Bada Board to hold your items.

Put Me In The Story: Watch My Little Princess Become a Part of the Book!


Oh my goodness, all that sweetness in a book!! My granddaughter loves all of the Disney princesses, so to have a book that showcases them and her is a very big thing. This book takes the name of your little princess and puts it in the title and in various places throughout the book. You can see on the bottom of the front cover that you can personalize it with who it is from too. My granddaughter loves to have most anyone in her family read to her, but it's extra special when her youngest uncle does it, so I made this Put Me In The Story book from me and him to her.

The Perfect Graduation Gift! Polaroid SnapTouch Digital & Instant Camera with #Giveaway #PRINTitForward

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Congratulations to my daughter who is now officially a high school graduate!
My daughter just had her commencement ceremony and it was awesome! There were only so many people who were allowed to go (ticket limitations), so of her three siblings, only one got to attend with me. We'll all be celebrating together soon though, at her upcoming Open House. That means it's now time to shop for the presents. Of course she'll get cash. One of the beauties of a graduation party is that you get lots of cash! With her upcoming college expenses (she starts in the Fall), that money will be needed. I wanted to find something else to get her though too, something that would be both fun and memorable. That's where the Polaroid New Snap Touch Camera comes into play. If you haven't seen all of the things you can do with this digital and instant print camera, you've got to keep reading. THIS Is not your grandmother's Polaroid!

Snuggle Plus SuperFresh has Odor Eliminator!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Fabric Softener is one of those things I like to use when washing our towels. To me, it's a luxury to get out of the shower and be able to wrap up in a big bath towel that smells delightfully 'Snuggalized,' which is what we like to call it when I put Snuggle in the rinse water.  

My kiddos are a sucker for good smelling towels too. One way to watch my 9-year-old melt like a baby is hand over newly dried and folded towels. He's loved that since he was little, and now as a big kid, or dare I say 'tween,' it's still something that he likes. Who can blame it? Good smells evoke good feelings, that's been true for as long as I've been around (and believe me, that's a pretty long time these days). This fabric softener is different though, because it has ground breaking technology that helps eliminate odors. Not mask them...eliminate them. To me, that's awesome news because that sweet little 9-year-old I mentioned, can also get pretty boy-stinky. ;)


The concept is the same that you're used to: simply put a cap full in the washer during the rinse cycle. The fresh Snuggle scent you love is still released as usual, there is just that extra added and very welcome boost that also will help eliminate any odors stuck in your fabric.


We've used it half a dozen times here. I liked it so much that I gave one bottle to a friend. Yep! It's that kind of product that is so revolutionary, and so good, that you have to share it with a bestie. Of course you can find this product in retail stores nationwide, so be sure to look for it on your next shopping trip. If you buy and you like it, come on back and let me know. I'd love to hear about it!

Chuck E Cheese is Celebrating their 40th Birthday with Free Cake and More!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are my genuine Chuck E. Cheese loving own.


Happy Birthday to Chuck E Cheese!! Today they are celebrating 40 years of awesomeness, and you are invited to the party! Tonight, May 19th, participating locations around the country will be celebrating this big birthday milestone in style. Help them attempt to break a Guinness World Record title for the most birthday blowers blown simultaneously. That's right, you can help be a part of an attempt to set a world record! 
There will also be free birthday cake while supplies last, 40 free tickets with a minimum $5 purchase and birthday blowers too. It all takes place at 7:40 p.m. CST/8:40 pm EST. Almost every kid likes to party down at Chuck E Cheese, and there's a good reason for it. Jam-packed with games and other awesome things to do, like their big signature winding play area with a slide, it provides a fun place for kids to let loose in a safe setting, and have a ton of fun doing it too! 


I know we all have our favorites while we're there, my son loves to throw the basketballs into the moving hoop, I like the photo booth that sketches your picture, my daughter loves the dancing game, and my grandbaby likes the ride-ons that move when you put your coin in. There's also a big fireman game that my youngest loves to play. You grab a big 'water hose' and help put out fires on a huge video game screen...it's made for one or two players, but we always tackle that one together. ;)


The first Chuck E Cheese's store opened in 1977 in San Jose, CA. Since then, the iconic family entertainment brand has made numerous changes, including adding new, more adult-friendly menu items but remains America's number one place for birthdays. Most recently, Chuck E Cheese's launched a program for children and families impacted by autism called Sensory Sensitive Sundays



Tonight's the Night! Head on over to Chuck E. Cheese's and help them celebrate their big 4-0! 
Happy Birthday Chuck E.!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Don't forget to scour the beauty aisle at your local retailer today, to pick up some really cool 7th Heaven foot and hand masks for mom. I put the 7th Heaven face masks (they have a huge variety and so many of them are AWESOME!) in the Christmas stockings last year and they were a huge hit. For Mother's Day, I will attach 7th Heaven pouches to the front of the greeting cards. What better day to gift a little pampering to mom than on her big day?

You've Still Got Time to Minecraft on the Big Screen!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



When you're ready to play video games competitively, this is the face you wear. It's one part serious, and one part, 'let's get the party started,' and what kid wouldn't want to play Minecraft on a huge movie screen, with a bunch of other gamers about their same age? I'm talking fun at its finest when you're a young kiddo.

Getting Ready for Some Summer Fun

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

The days are getting warmer, and summer is on its way. That means it is time to spring clean. Once again you need to thoroughly clean every room and take care of all those repairs you’ve been putting off. The reward for all your hard work will be a summer full of fun.

De-Clutter

Spring cleaning is the perfect time to clean out all of those neglected closets. Switch the bulky winter clothing and jackets for your light weight spring and summer outfits. As you sort through the apparel, throw out pieces that are worn out. Make a pile of items that need repaired, and bag up anything you no longer use to donate to your local charity. Continue in the same manner with your shoes and accessories.

Scrub

The kitchen and bathroom are the two places that need a good scrubbing. Remove all mildew and stains from your grout and replace any caulk around sinks and tubs that is missing or stained. Scour all sink basins and the interior of the tubs with a good bathroom cleaner to remove soap scum and water stains. Wash walls to remove grease in the kitchen and hairsprays in the bathroom.

Detailing

Every room needs some detailing. Wash windows and screens. Curtains can be dry cleaned or put in the washing machine, and blinds should be hosed off. Dust from the ceiling down. Make sure that all table tops, lamps, and knick-knacks are wiped clean. Move furniture while vacuuming to make sure you get every bit of the carpet. Rent a steam cleaner for heavy traffic areas.

AC Maintenance

Spring is when you want to do any routine maintenance required for the air conditioner. You don’t want to wait until the hot days arrive. Put all window units in, and have a professional inspect whole house systems. If you need HVAC repair Hampton VA has many companies that can get your unit up and running properly such as Art Newsome, Inc.

Now that you have the house cleaned and in tip top shape, you can enjoy these warmer days. You’ll have a stress-free summer without having to worry about that never ending “to do” list. Sit back and enjoy the result of all that hard work.

Graduation is right around the corner. I'm super excited about it this year because my daughter is going to be walking across the stage to pick up her diploma.

Theefun Plasma Ball

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Getting a Theefun Plasma Ball in your room is a big deal when you are 9-years-old. The light follows your touch, which makes it a novelty item that is perfectly suited for a child's room. The light moves wherever you touch the globe, adding an interesting addition to my son's already very fun bedroom. There is an on/off switch which is perfect because that means it doesn't have to run continuously.

Shopping for the Mom Who Has Everything!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Does your mom already have everything and need nothing? I know several moms like that, and to those who have them, I also understand how hard it is to find something to give them that they'll like, use, and be surprised (and delighted) to have as a gift. THIS is my suggestion: The Spice Lab has a nice variety of specialty items that mom can use in the kitchen! I'm not talking about items she'll see, like, and maybe use once (and then never look at again unless she's shuffling them around in the cupboard to make space). I'm talking about something she'll be able to use often, something that will make her smile, and something that will make her think of you every time she's using it cooking!

#Moovit #Snatched with Goldie Hawn & Amy Schumer Fandango Movie Ticket #Giveaway

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Moovit and BraVoMark. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


I am so happy to see Goldie Hawn back on the big screen in the new movie SNATCHED. It's been forever, hasn't it? I know she's been busy doing other things, but I missed her!! And Amy Schumer is the perfect match for a comedy duo, don't ya think?




This movie is about a mom and daughter who end up on an unexpected adventure, when their planned vacation goes awry. It's opening Mother's Day weekend and would be a perfect way to treat mom!


Now let me tell you about something related, and just as awesome: Moovit is the world's #1 Transit App. It supports over 1,200 cities nationwide, and had over 50 million users in 2016. That's a lot, but here's to hoping 2017 brings them even more! This app allows public transportation users to get the most of their experience. It tells real-time congestion levels, cleanliness, the best route to take and more. Moovit generates as many as 200 million data points a day, that comprises the world's largest repository of transit data. It's exciting to know that if you're taking the public modes of transportation, that someone has got your back. I think it's a wonderful concept and I'm glad it's gained such popularity. I know in some places teens take the public bus home from school, adults use public transportation to get back and forth to work, and vacationers use it to get around while they're traveling. Up until now, it's always been a guessing game of how it would be when you arrived. That is true no more, thanks to Moovit.

So how is that related? Well, let me tell you! Moovit has formed a partnership with Fox Studios, and to help celebrate, they're offering one lucky reader (4) free Fandango tickets to go see Snatched at the movie theater. I think that's pretty awesome! Good luck to all who enter, I know I'll be going with my family. This one looks too fun to miss.  US entrants only.

Wild Eye Designs for Mothers Day This Year!

If you're looking for unusual but useful items for your mom for Mother's Day, take a look at Wild Eye Designs. You'll be amazed at all of the cute, funny, practical ideas you'll find there.

Prestige Portraits: Graduation Photos Make a Great Gift for Moms and Grads!

I have discussed Prestige Portraits before, but I wanted to bring them up again. If you know someone who is getting ready to graduate and they had their Senior pictures taken, but didn't purchase them for whatever reason, then I have the perfect graduation gift idea for you to give them. Who wouldn't want to have a momento from this special time in their life, and as far as I'm concerned, photos are always the best of the best when it comes to memory treasures.

#ad #SharetheLuv High Value Coupons for Luvs

Disclosure: This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs. I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.



Luvs makes high quality diapers that are more affordable than any other premium brand out there, and when you can get extra savings on top of the already low prices, that's a good deal. Watch your Sunday newspaper (April 30th) for a $2 (off any box!) Luv's coupon. That's high value savings you can definitely appreciate. In addition to that, you can print a $1 off coupon from coupons(dot)com as well. Two ways to save? Yeah, that's really nice! Both coupons can be used at any mass, discount or grocery retailer where Luvs are sold.

There is the bunk bed from the story, LOL!!
As a mom of four kids, I understand the importance of diaper quality. My youngest was prone to blowouts at the most inopportune moments, including climbing a bunk bed ladder once in a small room he and his siblings were sharing at a water park hotel we were visiting. Talk about using your space, hahaha, I never saw a group of kids clear the room so fast. The 'emergency' though, wasn't really an emergency because he was wearing Luvs. Everything was contained, I changed him, and life went on as normal. It was pretty funny at the time though, and looking back I'm very grateful we brought Luvs.




Now softer and more absorbent than ever before, the Luvs of today are even better than the Luvs of yesteryear, and that in itself is amazing because the ones of yesteryear were pretty doggone solid. 
The large stretch tabs they now have, make for easy fastening, and the NightLockPlus™ ensures a good night's sleep for everyone. What hasn't changed though, is the ultra-leak protection that comes with a money-back guarantee. Is it any reason we have loved this brand for so long? It's always been amazing, and it really just keeps getting better and better.

I know you love savings, we all do.So pick up your newspaper on Sunday and clip that high value, $2-off coupon, AND don't forget to visit coupons.com to get another $1-off coupon for savings on an additional purchase.

Do you use Luvs? If so, give yourself a hand, you deserve it for being so smart. :)

Order Teleflora Now for Mother's Day Delivery! #ImJustLikeHer

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



The other day I saw a look on my youngest son's face that I remembered wearing in my childhood. It was the 'I'm not going to disrespect you, but you're totally wrong' look. My son is now at that age where he's starting to think he knows what's best for him, and that the rest of us are nuts. ;)  That's okay, I completely get it, and it just makes me smile because I know it's all a part of growing up. I felt that way once about my mom too. One day I know he'll be buying me flowers and thinking how much he appreciates me being tough at the right times, when he was the age he is now. That's how I feel about my mom, and in many ways, I am just like her...and that's okay. Better than okay. No one has your back, or loves you like your mother. So, to honor my mom for Mother's Day this year, I'll be sending her a Teleflora Sparkle and Shine Bouquet.  She'll love it not only because purple is her favorite color, but also because these flowers are gorgeous!

Make Drinks and Meals in the Nutri Ninja Nutri Bowl Duo!



Have you ever used a blender, and it was just such a pain to use and clean that you tried it once or twice and then put it up and completely forgot about it? That's how I was until I tried out the Ninja brand a couple of years ago. I loved it, but gave it to my son and his wife, who had a big need for it. Now I have one of my own, and it's still as amazing as I remember theirs being! It's super strong, amazingly versatile, very easy to use, and a cinch to clean up!! Definitely not like blender experiences I have had prior to getting this brand, and truthfully this isn't even a blender, it's really so much more! So, my gift advice for Mother's Day this year (or for yourself if you would like it): Give her something she'll love and use all year round: Give her a Ninja!

#Divatress #Beauty for Wigs that Look so Natural!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


There are many reasons one might want to wear a wig. From heading out on a date night, to going to a special event, to getting to work on time, to looking great in school, and maybe even for medical reasons, having a wig in your beauty routine could prove to be a very good idea. With so many on the market today to choose from, finding one that is perfect for you has become easier and easier! Lace Front Wigs are an espsecially great choice if you want your wig to look natural. I honestly can't even tell these selections are not the model's natural hair.

Cute and Functional Car Organizer


This is the Lassig Car Backseat Organizer. It's a long name for the cutest car organizer I have seen. I gave ours to my granddaughter because she's a lot younger than my son, and her parents have a real need to keep things close at hand. I want to purchase one for my son though, because a). he likes to be organized b). he enjoys taking things with him in the car, especially if we're taking a long road trip and c). it has a lot of different kinds of pockets for the various things you might need to bring along while you are in the car.

Little Ones Have Their Own Line of Travel Clothes with Hi Little One!

The First Years 360 Degree Sippy Cup



This is the youngest baby in our family, not really a baby now because she just turned 2! We are all at her grandma's house (who is in the photo above), and the cup she is holding is one that just mesmerized her. She couldn't get over that Minnie Mouse (whom she watches on TV) was on there, and she just kept staring at it. It was a hilarious moment, and I'm glad we got it on film.

Get Ready for Summer Camp! 25% off All Label Daddy Purchases



It's about that time when those of us who have children going to summer camp, are starting to prepare. One way to do so, is to get labels made with any allergies your child might have on them; their names so they don't lose things; and maybe even their address/phone number if they're going to a camp where they'll be sleeping over. We're about to get our labels ready, and we'll be doing so with Label Daddy.

FruitFull Kids Melamine Scripture Plates (10% Discount for Mail4Rosey Readers!)



How cheerful and lovely are these Fruit-Full Kids dinner plates? They are BPA-free melamine and they're a unique way to display faith while having a meal. They'd be a perfect gift for your child's Sunday School teacher (how often do we think to give them a little something to show our appreciation?), and most definitely to give to your child.  The plates are reasonably priced too, ringing in at just $6.95 a piece, or $19.95 for a set of three (MAIL4ROSEY readers get a 10% Discount  by using the coupon code COLLECTALL at checkout) I've never seen anything like them until now. Such a fun/good idea!

My Cuisinart ViewPro Glass Toaster is See-Through and I Love It!


It's the little things right? When we moved into our new place, the one thing I wanted to get was a see-through toaster. I don't know why, I just think they're cool. That being said, I wanted to make sure that the brand of it was a quality one, so that my investment would be a lasting one, and not just a fly-by-night idea that would come and go. I chose the Cuisinart ViewPro Glass 2-Slice Toaster. The brand quality (Cuisinart has been around forever!) and the cool visibility feature of the toaster would have been reasons enough for me to love our new toaster, but...it gets better.

Important Considerations when Choosing a College Preparatory School

Where he goes to school matters to me... a lot.

Every parent wants their kids to have the best opportunities in life and the best chances to achieve their full potential. To give kids the best prospects for reaching these goals, many parents consider a college preparatory school at high school age or earlier. Putting a child through a high quality college prep school provides a huge opportunity for parents to genuinely make a difference in their child's life.

#ffbamd I Think Everyone Would Agree: Helping Prevent Blindness is a Very Big Deal!


The Foundation Fighting Blindness, a non-profit organization that has been researching cures for blindness, specifically AMD, since 1971, has been able to stop or reduce blindness, which is great news for people over 55 and their families. While that is all well and good (boy is it!), they are still looking for ways to to continue their outreach, research and find cures.

Spa Day Every Day for Mom and Daughter!

It's easy to see those are bath bombs on the left (detoxifying Double Butter Bath Melts with Tea Tree Oil and Orange, to be exact) but is that candy on the right? Nope! It's a Guilt-Free Cocoa Butter Bar that you also use in your bath. You can use the Tea Tree and Sweet Orange bath melts for an indulgent and very fizzy bath session, or immerse yourself in the luxurious scent of the cocoa butter as it slowly melts around you in the tub. The former is invigorating. The latter is relaxing, and it softens and moisturizes your skin, while also smelling delightfully rich and fulfilling.

Air Pogo Anyone? GeoSpace Toys


The Jumparoo Air Pogo Jumper (sold at GeoSpace) is one of those toys everyone wants to play with, regardless of the suggested weight limit (wait, can I say that on here??). I know this because my granddaughter who is almost preschool-aged, likes it. My son who is in elementary school likes it, my grown kids like it, and I like it (though please note it is recommended up to age 13 only). ;) It's one of those irresistible forces that calls you to it when you see it sitting out. Why? I guess because it's unique and familiar all at the same time, and it looks like most anyone could do it with a little practice (and they can!).

British Soccer Camp this Summer?

 

My son likes being on a soccer team. It's a big deal to him, and in addition to camaraderie, skills, and teaching him to be a team player, it also helps to bolster his self-esteem. It's also a good way to get him out of the house and moving. If he could attend a soccer camp, I'm sure he would love it. If you feel the same, check out the locations for the following camp and see if one will be in your area. There are four located here in Palm Beach County, and so many more located all over the country! British Soccer Camps are the most popular soccer camp in the US!
Take a look and see if there is one located near you!

Get Your Ticket Discount Here! Brick Fest LIVE! LEGO Fan Experience


A few years back, my son went to one of these events, and he had a really good time. Now it's coming to our area again, and while he won't be able to attend this particular event (camp commitment), it is something I know he would LOVE, and so I wanted to share the information with those in the area, who might want some insight on the event. The kids love it, so I say if you get the chance, do go!

#DreamWorksTrolls #GoodyHairDay Fill Their Baskets with Goody!


With such a fun array of Goody items available, I had to take some and put them in the Easter baskets. From traditional ouchless hair elastics, to multi-colored headwraps and more, Goody has something for everyone. For the record, that no-tears hairbrush you see in the picture above, isn't going anywhere, but here. I've never come across a brush so soft and gentle on wet hair (ouchless FlexGlide bristles)! I'd like to say I'm keeping it for the kids, but nope, that ones for me (they can use it if they want). :)
