The New #LeapTV is Great for Special Needs Kids!

LeapTV Great for Autism Special Needs

We are huge LeapFrog fans in this house. I love the educational qualities, but also love how easy they are for Brady to use. With his autism and other disabilities, video games are usually challenging. He struggles with hand eye coordination and understanding the concept of a lot of the games out there. He also […]

Does Zerona Actually Zap Your Fat Away?

zerona does it work to zap your fat

I’m a sucker. I’ll bet the first to admit it. So when I saw a Groupon for Zerona promising me the “Only FDA approved laser body contouring” I jumped on it. I’ve been not-so-slowly gaining weight due to a bad reaction to a combo of medicine I was on and mix that with being lazy and feeling […]

Review: “Alexander” and the adorable, funny, feel-good, family film!

Think about the worst day you’ve ever had. Everything goes wrong…your alarm doesn’t go off, you’re rushed getting out the door, there’s a huge traffic jam, and worst of all YOU’RE OUT OF COFFEE! Now imagine that everyone in your family is having an equally awful day!  That’s exactly what happens to the Cooper family […]

Don’t fear the #selfie! Spa Week is coming!

Facebook AD

 Living in Colorado, we are short on two things: moisture, and oxygen. Especially when the weather gets colder, our high and dry climate can wreak havoc on skin. Combine that with stress, not eating right, travelling,…and lately my skin has just been looking blah.  I really needed a pick me up, so when I was […]

Ballet and The Bard: Colorado Ballet Presents “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

Artists of Colorado Ballet by Mike Watson2 (1)

I’ve always loved Shakespeare’s comedies the best. There’s always a love triangle, often a magic spell or two, and the master of words crafted the dialogue with lots of satire, puns, and innuendos. But without the Bard’s unique phrasing, rhyming, and double entendres, would a classic story be any good without any words at all?  My […]

LeapBand by LeapFrog is Great for Kids with Special Needs

After getting to interview Mia Hamm about getting kids active and learn about the LeapFrog LeapBand, I thought I would post my own review of the product. (Don’t forget we have a giveaway going as well!!!) When LeapFrog sent me the LeapBand, I was a little nervous as to how Brady would receive it. He […]

Introducing CORE by Origami Owl #FashionFriday

core necklace charms by origami owl

I’m always searching for that perfect “everyday” necklace. I don’t just want it to be 1 charm on a chain, or have so many that you feel like your necklace is weighing you down. Something delicate, but with meaning. I have ones with the boys birthstones, their names or initials, ones to celebrate my pride […]

The Toyota Sienna Saved our Sanity During Our Road Trip

Toyota Sienna Review

Imagine a road trip with your family. Husband, Wife, three boys ages 6 to 15. Throw in a special needs kiddo and the fact the husband has to work for 24+ hours the day before you leave. Your destination is 800 miles away. In between you and your destination? The entire state of Kansas. Sounds […]

Recently, I was invited to check out a Home Cook course at Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts in Boulder, and I had such a tough time choosing. They offer a really wide variety of classes and all the sample menus sounded so delicious! But, I finally decided on their Spring Farm to Table class. […]

Godzilla Movie Review and DIY Craft & Party Supplies

Godzilla DIY Craft & Party Supplies

A while back, my Godzilla obsessed middle boy (who is nearly 10 now) drew a picture of Godzilla v. Mothra and said simply, “Knit this for me.” After scoring various websites, I found suitable patterns to alter into these radioactive creatures.    I found this pattern at Knitting at Knoon and modified the T-Rex to […]
