Ezpz Mixes Review & Giveaway

November 20, 2015 By · 13 Comments

Disclosure: We were sent a subscription box kit for review purposes. This is definitely something that would make a great gifts.

EZPZ Mixes is a  subscription box kit that comes in the mail every month. This helps encourage little ones to cook with everything they need. I love this idea because I don’t have to run out and buy something and we aren’t sticking the mixes in a toy, you use this REAL thing. When our kit arrived I had no clue what to expect. Quite honestly I thought it would be a few items but this had EVERYTHING we needed, plus the actual dessert mix, frosting mixes, etc. The best part was it has an apron, baking tools and even a min cupcake tin.

Dinosaur Adventures Personalized Book Review & Giveaway

November 15, 2015 By · 63 Comments

Disclosure: I was sent this book free of charge from Hallmark Licensing to facilitate my review. Pictures and opinions are my own.
I had so much fun picking Nicoli out a personalized book from Hallmark. He is really big into Dinosaurs right now so it wasn’t hard picking out one I wanted just for him I went with the Dinosaur Adventures. Of course for those looking for personalized gifts they currently have Holiday books (Christmas, Santa, Hanukkah). Each book is personalized because you can pick any out, add the child’s name so they are the main character in the story, pick out the character. This is the fun part, you get to choose the hair color, style, eye color and skin tone.

Batman Unlimited/DC Super Friends Giveaway

October 27, 2015 By · No Comments

Disclosure:This is a sponsored post, that I thought some of you would love a chance at winning some money for the upcoming holidays.

Did you ever dream of being a super hero? Which one? If your kids are looking for as much superhero action as possible in one place, DC Kids is their answer. Oh and for fun, try thinking of some Halloween costumes they can make for this year. I recently was inside a store when I saw a cape and just couldn’t resist. There were two actually, one was black and the other blue with red trim. I’ll let you guess which ones those are and they are definitely making Nicoli feel like he is a super hero as he zooms around the room. Thank goodness he isn’t like his slightly older brother who use to think he was Spiderman and climb up my mantle and jump off. Not to worry he’s too little to read my blog so I’m safe for now. I love super powers and all the heroes that go with them and I’m definitely making sure he will too.

DC Kids latest animated series features all of your favorite DC characters from Batman to Wonder Woman and even Aquaman joining forces against the bad guys. Here’a little secret, I use to pretend to be Wonder Woman and fly around with my little cape. Hey, not just boys wear capes ya know. hehe But that ins’t part of the post, I want you to see the new Batman Unlimited. So click the link and head over to the video …. oh did I mention there’s a giveaway. Oh I didn’t, so sorry, yeah it’s worth $100 amazon gift card. Think about the super heroes that will buy.

Jurassic World out on DVD/Blu-ray

I want to be the first to state I have loved working with Universal/Hasbro with the release of Jurassic World. I loved Jurassic Park when it first came out and many of the other ones since. I got excited when Jurassic World was coming out, especially since it would be at the drive-in where I lived and was able to watch it with my kids the way I had seen the first one. Only thing missing was my cousins that spooked me every time the dinosaur was going to eat someone and the rainstorm that happened the first time I had ever seen it. As each package came the kids would be so excited. They knew it was a Jurassic World box because of the stickers on the side. So they couldn’t wait for the dvd. We were given a party supply box for the launch of the movie. While the movie wasn’t here on the release the kids and I did still have a party.


Now I must admit while everything else was attacked by the little dinosaurs the peeps have been untouchable. I want to make some popcorn balls with the little one.  Can you think of some fun things to do with the items pictured. Oh wait there is also this wonderful tin.

October 21, 2015 By · 9 Comments

Disclosure: We were sent the products listed below to have fun with a few recipes and introduce you to the newest ones.


I have a confession….. I love sweets. Okay so that isn’t much of a surprise but one of the things I love doing now that my daughters are old enough and express interest is baking. I found out that PEEPS®, MIKE AND IKE®, PEANUT CHEWS® all have new flavors coming out for Halloween. Fun right? So now I can make some delicious treats with my girls with the Peeps and pass out Mike and Ike’s and Peanut Chews. Oh and just saying that last part makes me think about the new Peanuts movie coming out at the beginning of November. Anyone going?
