Re-Play: Recycled Children's Eatery. Valentine's Day Edition!

Thanks to Re-Play for the book free for this review
Re-Play Products are made from recycled milk jugs! It's a better alternative for parents looking to make the planet a better place for their children as well as future generations.


I saw Re-Play four years ago on a blog, and shortly after that we purchased some plates and bowls for our (then) two little girls. I loved the idea of a divided plate because our second daughter didn't like food to touch, and enjoyed that they came in fun colors of recycled materials. At the time, I didn't realize our local Wal-Mart sold them, so we purchased online and have used them ever since. I've worked with Re-Play a couple times since starting in 2014, and we've also bought their products in-between, but I was thrilled when they accepted my request for this new review! 

Some of the many features include: 
  • Spoon has a deep scoop for children learning to use utensils
  • Fork has durable, rounded tips for your child's safety
  • Drinking cups are sized just right for the thirstiest toddler and stackable for easy storage
  • Divided plate's deep walls are perfect for little ones learning to feed themselves.
  • The bowls deep walls are perfect for snacks, soups and cereal.

Little Tikes Perfect Fit 4-in-1 Trike

I received products for free in exchange for a review. All thoughts/opinions are my own!

The Little Tikes Company was founded in 1970. It is a multi-national manufacturer and marketer of high-quality, innovative childrens products. In November of 2006, Little Tikes became a part of MGA Entertainment. Our headquarters and largest manufacturing facility are located in Hudson, Ohio. We also have a number of manufacturing and distribution centers in Europe and Asia.Our goal is to create and supply innovative products to customers and consumers around the world.


While we're still currently in January and crazy snow weather, let's fast forward to Spring with this amazing product from Little Tikes. I've always loves their brand because the toys last for years and hold up just as well after five years of use as they did when brand new. My newest review is a fun one for me because it is something I can not only use with two of my children now, but also something I'll use next Spring when baby Max is here!! 

The Perfect Fit 4-in-1 Trike is an fun item for parents with small children or a big family because it grows with age and can used several times with some quick adjustments depending on the stage you need.

Talkin' Tattoos Tuesday: Week 111


Welcome to week 111 of Talkin' Tattoos Tuesday! I did an intro post where I explained my goal in posting these every week and how you can submit your photo to be featured. Check out the post if you need to refresh your memory. Since I've went through all my tattoos, now I'll be sharing photos I've found online, and the occasional viewer submission when they come in.

Leading up until Valentine's Day, I'm choosing to share tattoos around love, partnership, or anything cute for couples. Hope you enjoy! 


This photo above is the parents of a friend of mine. After being married 25 years they got this tattoo because it was cute and simple. I love it because it's a fun piece but also shows their love for each-other!

My Maternity Fashion with LuLaRoe

I received some of following items for review purposes. All opinions and thoughts however are my own! 


When it comes to maternity fashion, there isn't a lot to choose from if you want to stay in a budget. Let's face it, who wants to spend $60+ on one outfit that is catered to our growing bodies, and then let it sit once we have the baby? While I kept a lot of my maternity clothes for several years with multiples pregnancies, they tend to wear out, loose color, and loose their appearance. Our last child was born a little over two years ago and after lots of discussion we decided we would not have more children, however, God had other plans and we found out September 1, 2015 we were expecting our fifth child. Shortly after discovering we were expecting, a friend and fellow blogger, Heather from Mommy's Favorite Things, introduced me to LuLaRoe and their amazing clothes. Since then I've expanded my collection of pieces and have fallen in love with fashion for the first time in my life because of LLR!

Boken Diaper Bags!

I received products for free in exchange for a review. All thoughts/opinions are my own!


Inspired by a travel backpack, Boken is a unisex, stylish yet utilitarian diaper bag for moms, dads, grandparents & nannies! Boken is the most lightweight diaper bag on the market, made from waterproof material that easily wipes clean, to handle whatever messes the world - or your baby - throws at you.


With the arrival of our son approaching, I was thrilled when I was given the chance to review a Boken Diaper Bag. I've noticed them around social media and was always intrigued with them, but didn't think I needed one until I got pregnant again. Not only with I have three kids 4yrs and under once Max arrives, but I'll have five children this summer with our oldest two out of school, so I need the mother load when it comes to a good quality diaper bag!
