Luckybars are Great for National Nutrition Month (this month) and for Easter (next month!)

Let's talk about what's in his hands! This child right here is a gem. I've said it time and time again. He's easy-going, smart and kind-hearted. He's also a very picky eater. It's my fault, I started off his youth catering to his eating wants, because I too am a picky eater, but then realized it was not a good path to have him on, and now we focus on his eating needs. His siblings all did and do love anything you put on their plate, so this was new for me. Both of us have branched out together, trying new things regularly (several times a week) so we can increase our choices of what we might like to eat, that is also good for us. I'm not going to lie, it was tough going at first, and still is at times, but we are dedicated. He is an athlete and I am getting up there in numbers (*ahem*) so we are both becoming more and more invested on what it is we are putting in our bodies. The one area we both still struggle in, is snacks! It's so easy to pick up a sugar-filled, or salty empty-calorie snack at the grocery store. We really have to slow down and concentrate, to bring home snacks that are going to serve more than one purpose. These Luckybars are a good choice!

This kid right here!! Have I mentioned how amazing he is? In addition to being absolutely chill, kind-hearted, smart and sweet, he's also so easy to entertain. Take him to a park and he's instantly happy, and he's been that way since he was a small boy. Here he is laid back and relaxed in his new outfit from Brooklyn Cloth. This is the Boy's Navy Rose Embroidered Striped Tee paired with their Boy's Black Twill Jogger pants and they are perfect for looking stylish while still being able to run around and play!

When this is how your Snapstar is presented to any young girl in your family, already you're going to have her instant attention. "What's in the bag?" "Can I see?" "Is it for me?"

Perfect for Mother's Day! Versatile High Quality Epson Expression Premium XP-6000 All-in-One Printer

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

Okay, let's talk about the Epson Expression Premium XP-6000, which you can pick up in places for $60 and under. I have been hesitant to get a printer inexpensively priced, but now that I have one, I wish I'd have gotten this one so much sooner. I can't speak for all brands that sell reasonably priced all-in-one printers, but this Epson is amazing. You can see some of the pictures I am printing above (coming out of the printer, on the side of it, and resting on top). The colors are vibrant, and I've saved a whole lot of money having my son take the pictures, and then printing them at home. And let me tell you, we're all so pleased with them. They came out every bit as beautiful as they would have in any portrait studio or store. In fact, I could easily and accurately say that this printer paid for itself the very first time we used it. Now lets talk about what it can do, and then I'll show you how some of those things turn out.

Apollo 11 The IMAX Experience Now Playing

I'm not sure how long this movie is going to be playing in theaters, but I know I want to see it, so we are making plans to get there ASAP. While my generation was very much into space, I'm not seeing that so much with the newer generation of kids, and what better way to pique their interest than through the big screen.

California Design Den: Affordable High Quality Sheets You Order Online

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

Well this is the life! I recently got this picture sent to me of my darling little diva enjoying her daddy's new sheets from California Design Den. Everyone knows that the overall aesthetic of the room matters, but if the sheets aren't comfortable and durable, it's not really a win! I know my own daughter had a bed that I absolutely loved and thought she would delight in. It was a canopy bed with curtains and I really paid a small fortune for the bedroom set at the time. She was in Kindergarten. She HATED it. I kept thinking she'd get past it, but she never did, so I gave it away to a family whose little girl was ecstatic to get it. Years later, I found out she just thought the sheets were scratchy. 👀😖 Admittedly, that was a parent fail, I should have gotten to the bottom of her discomfort that confused me so much, but we all have some kind of huge fail in life that leaves us slapping our heads. That is one of mine. Had I known now, what I knew then, I'd have just swapped her sheet set for California Design Den!

Gospel Coffee Table Books Giveaway from Alabaster

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

This set of 4 books from Alabaster Co. goes through each of the four famous gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. They are soft cover, full-sized books (7.5" x 9.5"), written in the New Living Translations. It is the photography/art inside that makes them a bit different than a traditional gospel book.
