  • VUDU Digital Video Service Makes Watching Movies at Home Even Easier!

    If your family is anything like mine, then watching movies is a favorite pastime. My husband and I have always been fans of watching a good movie and now the kids have joined in on the fun! We tend to purchase movies we especially like, which means we have a vast collection of DVDs and Blu-Rays. We love when a digital copy is available too, so we can watch our favorite movies on-the-go – something that works great when traveling. My husband recently started using VUDU and is loving the convenience of it and how all our digital movie copies can be stored in one place for easy access from…
  • Easing the Laundry Routine with Tide Pods plus Febreze {Review}

    Though I don’t particularly enjoy laundry day, it’s one of those tasks that has to be done. One that as a family of four is done on a frequent basis; kids do tend to use up a lot of clothes, after all. We tend to wash about 4-6 loads of laundry on a weekly basis, and we encourage the kids to help. Our four-year-old loves to help put clothes in the dryer and we always ask both of them to help with folding and putting away their own clothes. But, now that our girl is older, she’s able to help even more – occasionally she even loads the washing machine! However, laundry…

    Though I grew up eating a lot of rice and beans, I truly love eating pasta as well. I tend to cook at least one pasta dish each week and find that spaghetti is a go-to easy meal that works well for my family. Recently, I’ve been using more Wild Oats Marketplace Organic products, especially since I can find them at really great prices at my local Walmart! I previously told you all about Wild Oats Organic products when they first appeared in Walmart stores, plus shared a recipe for easy grilled chicken spaghetti using Wild Oats pasta sauce and noodles! Now that the variety of Wild Oats…

    Chinese New Year isn’t a holiday we’ve ever celebrated, but since we love learning about other cultures, I thought that it would be great to learn more about it this year. The kids know that Chinese New Year marks the beginning of a new year and are familiar with the Chinese Zodiac calendar. They understand that each year is represented by a different animal, with this coming year being the Year of the Goat/Ram/Sheep. Chinese New Year is celebrated on February 19th this year – to learn a little more about Chinese New Year and the Year of the Goat, check out our easy kids…
