Cuddle up with Zoobies Blanket Pets

Zoobies offers an entire array of adorable, quality plush animals which double as pillows and include a blanket. They are perfect for children of all ages and have been on the top of my children's wish list for a while. As you can imagine, my son was thrilled when Kojo the Croc arrived at our home. Kojo is a gorgeous bright green color and a terrific size. From his toothy grin to the end of his tail, he covers almost 3 feet in length and is 9" tall. He has a super squishy head which is filled with microbeads.

Newman's Own Organics | Ends 11/21/12

Welcome to the Newman's Own Organics Giveaway

Hosted by: Pinterest Fanatic and Giveaway Fanatic.
A huge thank you to the following amazing bloggers for co-hosting this event:
Dani Sue Dreams, Montessori Writer and Sue's Reviews.

When it comes to food, there are two things that I love most... I love organic foods and I love natural ingredients. It makes me feel good inside to feed my family these types of food. I had seen Newman's Own Organics in the grocery store before, but I had never tried it. When they offered to send me a sample of their food, I had no idea that they had such a vast selection. Just look at all these goodies we got to try!

Newmans Own Organics, Organic Food, Chocolate, Healthy Snacks

My kids opened up the box and began pulling food out as if it were Christmas Day! We were all so excited to see all the yummy food Newman's Own Organics make. We were happy to begin sampling everything immediately.

These cookies were an instant hit with the kids. My daughter (and I) really loved the Chocolate Alphabet Cookies. They are absolutely delicious. I really liked that they are a smaller scale size and you can eat a few at a time. My son loves the combination of orange and chocolate, so the Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies were perfect for him.

Newman's Own Organics must of had me specifically in mind when they created Hermits. They are hands down the most heavenly cookie I have ever had. They are chewy, soft and have just the right amount of cinnamon baked in to make them the most delicious cookie ever made. Trust me, you will LOVE these!

Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved chocolate peanut butter cups. When I saw that Newman's Own Organics offered all kinds of Chocolate Cups, my heart skipped a beat! These are hands down the best Milk and Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups you will ever eat. Not to mention, they come three to a pack - hooray! Plus, they offer Milk and Dark Chocolate Caramel Cups and Chocolate Peppermint Cups. These were all a huge hit with our family.

Then finally, a girls favorite sweet treat... Chocolate. But, not just any Chocolate, Organic Chocolate. Plus, there are all kinds of flavors like Dark Chocolate, Espresso, Mocha, Orange and Milk. They are all absolutely blissful, so very smooth and full of chocolate flavor. My son was thrilled that they sent Orange Chocolate. He was in love. As for the rest of us, we enjoyed every flavor.

A huge thank you to Newman's Own Organics for being so generous and allowing us to try so many of their fabulous foods. I would highly recommend any of them to all of you! I really loved being able to enjoy all the natural and pure flavors of the food. It makes a huge difference and also makes me feel good about what my family is eating.
Stay connected to learn about the newest products by following Newman's Own Organics on Facebook.

Little Sloane Leaning Desk | Ends 11/28/12

Little Sloane Leaning Desk
The event dates: 11/5 - 11/28 Open to US & Canada.

Sponsors: Mom Blog Society | Geeky Gamer Mom | Route 249 | Building Carpenters

Furniture occasionally needs somebody to lean on, too. In the case of our Little Sloane Leaning Desk, all it needs is a wall. We've taken the unique leaning design of Crate and Barrel's Sloane furniture collection and scaled it down to accommodate your little ones. They save space by taking up less area on the floor, and they secure to the wall for added safety. Buy one as a standalone piece, or pick up multiples to make a custom look of your own.

Safety first

I'm in Love with Glass Straws!

I LOVE Straws!!! I'm not even gonna lie... I need straws and I don't want to drink anything without a straw. Obviously, I'm obsessed with straws. Up until recently, I knew of two types of straws: plastic straws and the cardboard/paper straws they serve at Ted's Montana Grill. Both of which are disposable and only good for one use. Once I became a Pinterest Fanatic, I learned there were really cute decorative paper straws out there, but again - these are disposable and only good for one use. Although these are super cute, unless you are throwing a party, these are pricey and not practical. Then my sweet friend Sara told me about Glass Straws. Glass Straws had never crossed my mind and I couldn't wait to try them out.

I was so excited with the terrific assortment of straws I received from I got a straw for shorter glasses, a bent straw for very tall glasses, a standard size straw and a wider straw for smoothies. After I finished gushing over them, I simply placed them in the dishwasher to prepare them for use. Yes, the dishwasher! I am so thrilled that these are reusable and incredibly easy to clean.

glass straws, glassstraws, pyrex straw, bent
My favorite is a long large bent straw which is perfect for my tall glass cups. It has adorable colored glass dot designs. I love how smoothly my liquid flows and I genuinely prefer the texture over plastic straws.

glass straws, glassstraws, pyrex straw, reinforced tip
My handsome son fell in love with the really unique straw with blue colored reinforced tips. It is a standard size straw and fits perfectly into our average size glasses. He enjoyed making slurping noises and banging the glass straw into the glass which drove me crazy. His reply: "Mom, I was helping you fully evaluate it." *Sigh* How do you argue with that face? Bottom line: I was happy to see him enjoying it.

Toe Juice - Hog Wash | Ends 11/9/12

Toe Juice, Hog Wash, Skin Care, Beauty

I don't know about you, but my skin always takes a beating in the winter. My hands get dry and cracked no matter how much lotion I use. My feet get dry and funky, sometimes my elbows even get a little dry. Dealing with dry, cracked and sometimes painful skin can involve a lot of trial and error. How is a girl to know what product to use? There are so many products available that claim to rejuvenate your skin, but what actually works?

Toe Juice works, and it works well! It is enhanced with dermavine to help promote healthy, touchable skin. It is gentle enough for the entire family to use, and it helps take care of many skin irritations including athletes foot, bug bites and dry skin to name a few.
