Welcome to week 2 of the Have A Keurig Holiday Event hosted by Mom Powered Media!

Special thank you to our lovely co-hosts: Spend With Pennies and My Vegan Gluten-Free Life

Logitech Wireless Keyboard Review {Holiday Gift Guide 2012}

As a blogger I spend a lot of time at the computer which makes having a reliable computer extremely important... But having reliable accessories is just as important! If you have a keyboard that's uncomfortable or has a ridiculous amount of lag time it makes working that much tougher. Well, that's where Logitech comes in!

I have been using Logitech Wireless Mice for years so when I discovered that they offer Wireless Keyboards as well I jumped on the opportunity to review one. The Logitech Wireless Keyboard is about 20% smaller than standard keyboards and features sturdy folding legs making it perfectly compact with superior comfort. It also has an extended three-year battery life which is great on the environment and your wallet.

Fracture Glass Photo Review and Giveaway {Holiday Gift Guide 2012} *Closed*

I am one of those parents that always has to take photos of important events in our lives... Whether it's first steps, preschool graduation, holidays, or even just fun filled days at the park, I have my camera right there with me. My problem, however, is that I'm not one to really print out the photos after I take them. They usually just stay in the memory card and eventually I will print a few out to give to the grandparents or I'll use them to make personalized Christmas gifts. Well, let me tell you about this really neat company called Fracture.

Fracture is a photo decor company that is changing the way people print and display their personal digital photos. Fracture takes your digital photos and prints them onto glass, creating a final product that is picture, frame, and mount, all-in-one. Fracture offers a variety of photo sizes and you can choose to either hang them on the wall or have them stand mounted.

Tonka Toughs Steel Bulldozer Review {Holiday Gift Guide 2012}

As a mom of boys I know how important it is to have toys that are durable. I have always been pretty lucky when it comes to Brayden, he's rough but careful at the same time. Trevor on the other hand is as rough and tumble as a boy can get. So when Funrise Toys offered to send us a Tonka Steel vehicle to review I jumped on the opportunity!
Tonka is a brand that has been around for ages and they're very well known for their durability. Well, these classic steel vehicles are no exception. We were sent the Tonka Toughs Steel Bulldozer to review and the name pretty much says it all. This truck is as tough as they get and is absolutely perfect for Trevor.

The Tonka Toughs Steel Bulldozer features a steel body and a working blade making it ready to demolish and clear away anything in its path. You can move dirt, sand, rocks, and gravel with the free-wheeling wheels and the movable blade, but best of all, this bulldozer is built to last!

Kids can use it to draw pictures and practice writing, moms can use it to write down their grocery and to-do lists, and dads can even use it to play games, keep score, and even diagram the winning play!

Uncle Milton Dinosaur Train Toys Review {Holiday Gift Guide 2012}

Trevor is a huge fan of Dinosaur Train. We have a few Dinosaur Train DVDs and train sets that Trevor is absolutely obsessed with but when he saw these Dinosaur Train toys from Uncle Milton he fell in love!

If you are not familiar with Uncle Milton then you have definitely got to check them out! They offer a variety of award-winning toys and lead the science category with popular brands including Star Wars Science, Jim Henson’s Dinosaur Train, In My Room, and Explore It! Their toys are educational, inspire wonder, and best of all, they're fun.

We were recently sent a variety of Dinosaur Train toys to review including Hatchers, Dino Poop, and a Ned Brachiosaurus Periscope. Now if you have kids then I'm sure you've tried some sort of "grow" toys before but Uncle Milton's Hatchers are much cooler than your average place it in water and watch it grow toy. Hatchers come in all four of your favorite Dinosaur Train characters and each comes in it's own little egg that cracks when placed in water. What's really cool about Hatchers though, is the fact that the Dinosaur Train characters grown 4x their normal size! Needless to say, my boys love them!

Pinterest On-the-Go!

I am a Pinterest addict! It really is the hot thing right now and I just can't get enough of it. I'm always on Pinterest looking for recipes or craft ideas. Well, now with the help of Verizon, my Samsung Galaxy S III, and the Pinterest app, Pinterest just got a whole lot cooler!

As I said previously I love to look for new recipes on Pinterest. It's easy to search for a good one, pin it it to your board, and come back later to try it out. Well, have you ever been at the grocery store and just couldn't figure out what you wanted to make for dinner later in the week and wished you had a cook book (or something) with you to help you come up with an idea? Now you can take Pinterest with you, search for that recipe you pinned last month, and find all the ingredients you need to make something your family is going to love... Pretty cool, right?!

Rockin’ Rider Pony Review and Giveaway {Holiday Gift Guide 2012} *Closed*

Trevor has always been really great at using his imagination. He loves to run around pretending to be a super hero, or a firefighter, or his most recent obsession, a cowboy! Well, he recently decided that he needed a horse to ride around on when he's playing cowboy and luckily Tek Nek Toys offers the coolest rideable play horses around... Rockin' Rider Ponies!

We were sent the Rockin' Rider Brown Pony from Tek Nek Toys and not a single day goes by that Trevor isn't rocking around on his new pony! The Rockin' Rider collection features a wide variety of premium plush, lovable toys that have mouths that move as they talk and sing the “I’m a Little Pony” song to your kids.
