The Trash Pack Eggstinct Trash for the Easter Basket! {Giveaway}



I can hardly believe that Easter is this weekend! I have just started planning what will be in my kid’s Easter baskets. My son is always the hardest because he is not a big candy fan. The only candy that he really likes is suckers and gummi bears and I’m not about to fill up his entire basket with that! What he does love is The Trash Pack, the gross gang from the garbage that he loves to collect!

Trash Pack Easter


Since Hayden isn’t too into candy, The Trash Pack Rotten Eggs are the perfect gift to include in his Easter basket and I bet your child would love it too! The Series 6 Rotten Egg Trashies include teams like Eggstinct Trash, Scrambled Animals, Hardboiled Trash, Eggs-cavated Trash and more – your child will want to collect all of the characters!

The 5 pack collection contains five festering rotten eggs, five new Series 6 characters and a collector’s guide for easy reference of all the new Trashies. Look out for the Ultra Rare Puke Egg Trash or the Limited Edition Metallic Trash which could be hiding in this pack!

I also received the Junk Truck, which is a perfect companion to the Trashies for Easter! Pick up the Trash with the new Trash Pack Junk Truck and then crank up the Crane and Grab the Garbage! Throw your Trashies into the Trash Compactor and squish ‘em up! You can even pull off and fold open the large bin at the back to create a mini playset! There’s STACKS of new fun in the new Trash Pack Junk Truck AND it comes with two exclusive Trashies.

Must-Have Jewelry: Monogram Necklace {Giveaway}



I have always loved personalized jewelry. I have a ton of necklaces that reflect my role as a Mom, with all of my children’s names. I love wearing those necklaces because when I’m not with them, I can look down at my necklace and think of them. Recently though, I have seen these gorgeous monogrammed necklaces popping up on Pinterest and they have been on my wish list ever since.

I discovered Eve’s Addiction a few weeks ago and it’s quickly become one of my favorite places to shop for jewelry. They sell gorgeous sterling silver jewelry {my favorite!!} and they specialize in designer inspired jewelry and a variety of personalized and mother’s jewelry. It makes sense that it’s called Eve’s Addiction because I’m seriously addicted to the site and want to buy all the jewelry. With Spring coming up, for some reason I’m more in the mood to wear jewelry. Below are some of my Spring Must-Haves from Eve’s Addiction.

Must-Haves from Eve's Addicton

1. Tiffany Style Scribble Earrings 2. Peach PearDrop Bib Necklace 3. Vintage Style Silver Cuff Bracelet 4. Tiffany Style Starfish Ring 5. Silver Infinity Necklace

I mentioned earlier that I’ve been lusting after a monogrammed necklace and Eve’s Addiction has a gorgeous selection of them in different scripts and styles. I ordered the basic Sterling Silver Monogram Necklace, which is completely custom made for me with my initials of MCM. There are three size options for the pendant – small, medium and large and you can choose from a 16″ or 18″ chain {or pay extra for a 20″ chain}.

Monogramed Necklace

I received the medium size necklace with a 20″ chain and I absolutely love it. The monogrammed pendant is light but sturdy – my girls love to play with it when I hold them. Even though it’s a personalized item, it still ships in 5-7 days. When it arrives, it’s in a special pouch that is perfect to store it in when you’re not wearing it.

I am SO excited to be giving away a monogram necklace to one lucky reader!

Give the Gift of Clean with Pampers Sensitive Wipes {Giveaway}



A few months before the twins were scheduled to be born, I started going on a cleaning frenzy. I’m sure it was my nesting kicking in extra early since there were TWO babies in there, but I wanted the house organized and clean. I threw away a bunch of stuff and stocked up on cleaning supplies and storage tubs. Then, about a week before the twins came, my Grandparents asked if there was anything I wanted and I eagerly told them I would love for a professional cleaning service to come to our house while I was in the hospital. The house was going to be all ready for these two little ones when they arrived!

When we came home from the hospital, the house was sparkling clean and I loved it! But with newborn twins, a 5 year old boy and a dog, the house sure didn’t stay clean. And sure enough, it’s been hard to KEEP it clean the past year. In fact, I’ve been thinking of buying this sign and hanging it in our living room as you walk in.

house was clean


As a new parent, there’s this urge to get everything done yourself. Take care of the baby, cook meals, keep guests entertained and clean the house. When I had my first son, I was exactly like this. I wanted to handle everything myself I guess to prove I could do it. But new moms {and veteran moms!} I’m here to tell you – DON’T. Don’t try and do everything yourself – ask for help and don’t feel guilty about it!

While my house may not always be clean these days, I do help my kids stay clean thanks to Pampers Sensitive Wipes. With my twins, it seems like I’m always changing diapers. Olivia has VERY sensitive skin and we have had many different doctor’s appointments talking about her skin and various diaper rashes she has had. The wipes that her doctor recommends is Pampers Sensitive Wipes, because it gives her a gentle clean. These clinically proven mild, dermatologist-tested, hypoallergenic, and perfume-free wipes won’t irritate her skin even further. I don’t just use Pampers Sensitive Wipes for a gentle clean during diaper changes, but they are also my go-to wipes for wiping messy faces – from my one year old twins to my 6 year old!

Pampers Wipes

Right now, I’m in full-on Spring Cleaning mode! I am so glad to throw open the windows and get my cleaning on! I know how rough it can be to get your cleaning done with a newborn, so thanks to Pampers I was sent a gift card to put together a Spring Cleaning Basket for a friend who is due in a few weeks. I’m excited to give her the gift a gentle clean next week at her baby shower!

Gift of Clean

The Gift of a Gentle Clean for my friend who is a soon to be Mom includes Pampers Sensitive Wipes to get Baby M off to a right start, a $50 Cleaning Certificate to a local cleaning company and 2 different scents of Febreeze – so she can just ACT like the house is clean!
