I See Me! Personalized Children's Books and Gifts Review

Trevor is at that age where he's starting to recognize his name and they're even working on tracing it and spelling it in preschool, so I wanted to find the perfect way for him to work on his name practicing at home too... That's when I discovered I See Me!'s My Very Own Name Coloring and Activity Book.

With the My Very Own Name Coloring and Activity Book, kids can learn to recognize letters and spell their name, all with the help of a few animal friends. In this personalized coloring book animals bring letters one by one to spell out your child's first name in rhyme. We were recently sent a book for Trevor to review and it's absolutely perfect.

Get into the Holiday Spirit with the Dial Foaming Hand Wash Holiday Collection

With both of my boys being in school now there are a lot of germs floating around our house so hand washing is important. I always tend to gravitate towards cutesy hand soaps for the bathroom, I feel that helps encourage my boys to want to wash their hands. Well, Dial recently released their limited edition Holiday Collection of foaming hand soap... Talk about cute!

The Holiday Collection features four cheerful designs including Santa, Snowman, Candy Cane, and a Holiday Scene. All of the designs are absolutely adorable and definitely help get you into the holiday spirit. And let's not forget the fact that they smell amazing!

Baked Spiced Squash Recipe and Country Crock Holiday Veggie Kit Giveaway

The holiday season is upon us and that means lots of good times to be had with family and friends. It seems like every time you turn around there's a holiday party, gathering, or event to attend, and if you're anything like me you're sitting there wondering what to bring?

Do you bring along a batch of delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies that you know everyone will love or do you step outside of the box and try something new, like perhaps Garlic Mashed Potatoes & Cauliflower?

Well, there is one thing I know for sure... Whatever I decide to make will be made with Country Crock Spread. Country Crock has always been my go-to and I love that they not only offer their original spread but also different flavored spreads like pumpkin spice and honey spread... YUM!

I was recently provided with a Country Crock Holiday Veggie Kit that helped equip my kitchen for this hectic time of year. So, what's included in the Country Crock Holiday Veggie Kit? Well, there was a coupon for a FREE tub of Country Crock, veggie preparation tips, four Country Crock holiday recipes including Holiday Broccoli Saute, Baked Spiced Squash, Garlic Mashed Potatoes & Cauliflower, and Easy Creamed Corn, a Vegetable Chop & Measure, and a Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick Bronze 12" Frypan.

GUND Plush Friends Review {Holiday Gift Guide 2012}

In our house you can't go wrong when it comes to plush friends. Whether it's an animal, a favorite cartoon character, or a creepy looking monster, if it's stuffed my boys will love it. But what you may not know is that get their love for stuffed animals from me. I was a tad bit obsessed when I was younger as well and I have since passed that obsession onto my boys.

Now, I have obviously toned down my obsession and only have a few stuffed animals of my own, most of which my boys end up stealing anyway. But when GUND offered to send us a couple to review I jumped on the opportunity, and when I saw what they sent I got even more excited.

Have you heard of GUNDimals? GUNDimals are realistic-looking plush animals including dogs, cats, farm animals, and wildlife. What makes these animals so realistic is the fact that the designers use airbrushing and ironing to make them look as real as possible.

Audiovox 9" Portable DVD Player Review and Giveaway {Holiday Gift Guide 2012}

Every time we go anywhere that's more than an hour away my boys (like many kids on a long car ride) get so bored. They're constantly asking that nagging question that every parent hates to hear... "Are we there yet?"

We take along toys, books, and video games but the excitement never lasts long. Well, we've always thought about purchasing a portable DVD player but we didn't really know if it would actually get used so we decided against it for the longest time. Audiovox recently sent us their 9" portable DVD player to review and we are seriously kicking ourselves for not purchasing one sooner!
