Hello Readers!

Welcome to the new “Life of a Home Mom. This is my first official post over here and to be honest I’m excited and freaked out all at the same time.  Why? Simple, I’m wondering if while I wait for my site to import if it’ll delete everything instead. To those that are here, thank you, it means a lot to me. I’ve wanted to get my OWN site for a while, but never had the guts to do the transfer…so here it is. Like it?  I know it still needs a design but it is my own domain and that’s what matters.

Sylvania Halogen Blog Tour

March 27, 2010 By · No Comments

How many of you change your lightbulbs every month or once every two months? It gets crazy right? I have four kids, each one tends to run through a room and leave on a light no matter how often I tell them to shut them off. With that being stated we are constantly having to replace lightbulbs faster than most. When MomCentral asked if we’d like to review “Sylvania Halogen SuperSaver light bulbs” I jumped at the chance. These lights save you 33% energy and last longer.

Facts from Sylvania:

The SYLVANIA halogen SUPERSAVER light bulb emits the same bright white light as regular incandescent bulbs, but uses up to 33% less energy (and no mercury). With a familiar shape and dimmable features, these bulbs can also fit easily into pre-existing accent lights, track lights, or other fixtures, making them a great transition lightbulb for busy Moms. Of note, traditional incandescents are being phased out under the Federal Government’s Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.

Many of you know I’ve been trying to get myself and my family to live healthier and that includes things around the house as well as food. By using these lights we’ll be taking yet another step towards going green. I know it won’t all happen over night but it helps. I will admit that the light it gives off is a bit different from what we are use to but at least it is brighter. You don’t even need more than one to be put in due to the light it brings about. Yet, it states it saves 33% energy makes me feel these are definitely a bargain. I have 2 chandelier in my home, one has 4 lights, the other has 6 and I have no clue how many other regular lights we have. I place one each in both of the chandelier and can definitely see a difference. The best part it means I honestly don’t need to get any other lights until these are gone.

“I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of SYLVANIA and received products necessary to facilitate my candid review. In addition, I will receive a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.”

How to Train Your Dragon Movie & Toys

March 26, 2010 By · 2 Comments

How many of you will be hitting up the movie theaters this weekend to go see, “How to Train a Dragon”? I wasn’t really sure about this movie when I first started hearing about it because I hadn’t watched any of the previews and just kept hearing the kids talking. Now it only sounded like something really cheesy to me and it hadn’t been made into a cartoon so didn’t sound like anything exciting. That is until the hubby and I watched a movie recently and got to see one of the previews for “How To Train a Dragon.” It looks really cute and he (and the kids) love dragons and swords so this would definitely be a good one for them. I liked that it didn’t look like your typical cartoon and I loved the theme of it.

How to Train Your Dragon Movie:
A young teenage Viking is learning to hunt dragons but suddenly meets one face to face and learns they are nice. He asks if anyone has trained them and is basically laughed out of the place but decides to try anyways. Can he teach this dragon to be friendly? Can he teach his people they don’t have to fight them?

Of course everyone knows that with one hot movie coming out kids are going to be begging for the books, coloring books, posters, toys, etc. This is perfect time since Easter is only a week, these would make for some great basket fillers.

I already have a few asking for the books and two asking for the toys. Little A wants any of the toys, his sister wants the stuffed dragon. It really is cute. Here’s a preview of How to Train Your Dragon:
