Hefty Ultra Strong Kitchen Trash Bags

There are so many jobs around that house that I could do but I choose not to do.  Call it misogyny or whatever you want, I am a strong woman who just so happens to loathe taking the trash out! I am lucky that my husband doesn't mind this chore at all.

I always think--What if the bag breaks? Why does it smell so bad? What happens if it leaks? All those what-ifs are followed by dreaded thoughts of me having to clean up yet another mess in the Day of a Mom! The work here is never-ending. Could you imagine if you could enlist someone else to take out your trash? Someone like the sexy John Cena?

Could you even imagine for a second that you go to the grocery store on some random day and your husband turns into John Cena? Well, I am not one for a big, muscly man but I am sure he could be very helpful around the house. "Honey, can you crack my back?" "Baby, can you take out all 20 bags of trash and recycling all at once?" I can think of a million things I would love to have him do in the house!

See those box tops for education?! BONUS!! I love the way these smell!!

Hefty has created their best bag ever and you can learn more about Hefty and their new low price!

Hefty Ultra Strong Kitchen Trash Bags feature:

Arm & Hammer patented odor neutralizer
Active Tear Resistant Technology for superior strength
Break resistant grip drawstring

Be sure to download the Hefty coupon to save $1.00 off your next Hefty Ultra Strong purchase because nothing is sexier than saving money. Am I right?

        Gerber Lil Beanies-a Wholesome Toddler Snack

        As a mom on the go, there are a few lessons I have learned over the years, one of them is to always be prepared for hunger to strike. I am not one to stop for an unhealthy snack because one time leads to two until the cycle is out of control. Motherhood involves a lot of preparations and on the go snacks are no exception. Having something nutritious and easy to eat no matter where life is taking us is important.

        Gerber knows how important it is to offer growing bodies portable nutrition. Lil Beanies are made with the wholesome goodness of navy beans to offer lil ones a healthy and tasty snack. As a mom, I am loving this snack option because I can say yes to my kids more often when they want to munch without being overwhelmed with mommy guilt.

        We always pick up our Lil' Beanies at Walmart. They are priced right and easy to find. I love the convenience of finding our nutritious snack for one the go or at home in our neighborhood Walmart. It means my kids are loaded up with 2 grams of protein and 1 gram of fiber with each nosh. That sure beats the empty calories and high sugar content of so many kid snacks!

        If you are in need of a good-for-them snack that tastes so good they will ask for more, head on over to your local Walmart and pick up both of the flavors of Lil' Beanies. Your kids are going to love them and you are going to love saying yes to them when they ask for a snack you approve of!

        Natural Balance Celebrates National Guide Dog Month With the Top Human-Canine Teams Who Make Us Believe

        Have you ever seen a visually impaired person in public and didn't know how to react, or felt awkward? Have you ever wondered what it's like to 'see' through the eyes of their guide dog? I know I have.

        September is National Guide Dog Month, so I decided to learn more about what it might be like for people who are blind or visually impaired.
        I'm partnering with Natural Balance (the maker of premium-quality pet food) and Guide Dogs for the Blind (a non-profit charitable organization that raises and trains exceptional guide dogs to serve the blind and visually impaired) to recognize the 'Top Human-Canine Teams Who Make Us Believe.'
        These nine teams are outstanding examples of the amazing partnerships possible between humans and canines. I was particularly inspired by Tom and his guide dog Dynamo, and I want to share their story with you:
        Imagine you're on the verge of retirement, ready to enjoy your golden years to the fullest, when out of the blue—you lose your eyesight. This is what happened to Tom Kowalski. While Tom was always known for taking on any competitive sport, and was no stranger to overcoming life's adversities, this was a challenge he simply wasn't prepared for.
        After months of seeing Tom come home from his daily walks with strange bruises, his wife decided to apply to Guide Dogs for the Blind on his behalf. Before he knew it, Tom was headed to San Rafael, California to meet his future soulmate—Dynamo, a professional guide dog. 
        "I've had four great gifts in my life: my wife, my two kids, and Dynamo," says Tom. A superhero guide dog and a superhuman athlete, Dynamo and Tom spent two intensive weeks at Guide Dogs for the Blind training and securing their bond. They have never looked back. 
        With Dynamo never more than 20 feet away, Tom can listen to the birds sing and feel the wind in his hair without worrying about his safety. The added peace of mind that Dynamo gives Tom, and the support and positive reinforcement that Tom gives Dynamo, have helped the two complete a half-marathon together, raising $6,000 for charity. With no signs of slowing down, the two are now planning to hike up Mount Rainier and travel the country—speaking as ambassadors for Guide Dogs for the Blind. 
        As Tom's story shows, in addition to providing enhanced mobility, guide dogs can also be a social bridge, opening a world of possibilities for friendship and human connection. 
        To help people like Tom thrive, please consider donating to Guide Dogs to the Blind. Once there, you can also read about the eight other amazing human-canine teams. There's no better time than National Guide Dog Month to show your support for these incredible people and their four-legged superheroes.
        Do you have a special bond with your pet? Tell me about it in the comments below.

        #MomsMeet NeilMed Naspira Review

        There is nothing more frustrating to a new parent than having a sick child. Your baby is sick, stuffed up and they won't stop crying. Are they sick? Are they teething? We have all been there and there is no doubt how helpless that makes any parent feel. The question is "how can I help my baby that can't help themself?" The short answer; Naspira®! 

        What they company says a
        bout NeilMed® Naspira® : 
            • NeilMed® Naspira® Nasal-Oral Aspirator is the world’s most uniquely designed nasal aspirator system that safely and effectively suctions baby’s and toddler’s stuffy, runny or congested noses

            • With the unique, transparent 2-in-1 design, you can either use it as a NeilMed® NasaBulb aspirator or as an effective Nasal-Oral suction device, where parents can use suction force generated by the mouth to alleviate nasal congestion in babies and small children 

            • The high-grade, all-silicone design allows for easy pull apart cleaning of all components, as well as sterilization through boiling water or microwave disinfection protocol

            • The NeilMed® Naspira® Nasal-Oral Aspirator includes 7 in-line disposable filters to prevent mucus from inadvertently entering the tubing and reaching the user’s mouth

            • The retail price of the NeilMed® Naspira® Nasal-Oral Aspirator ranges from $9.99 to $14.99

        What I say 
        about NeilMed® Naspira®: 
        I wish that this was around when my boys were helpless babies! This product is honestly a dream-come-true! Not only is the Naspira® super-effective but its also very affordable. Honestly, I have never seen a product that is so useful! Ever since I used this for the first time with Oliver, I have given it to 3 new and expectant mothers. Truthfully, I won't ever give another baby shower gift that doesn't include the Naspira®. New moms have enough to worry about so I will let the Naspira® give them peace of mind when their precious little one is stuffy.

        Where to Buy: 
        NeilMed products can be found at Babies R Us, Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Harmon, Kinney Drugs, Shop Rite, Brookshire’s,,,, and
