Abby’s shower is only a few days away and the planning is coming together!  There are some surprises heading her way and I’m excited for her big day.

Owl Diaper Cake Tutorial - This sweet owl diaper cake makes a cute baby shower centerpiece. A bib, receiving blanket, some diapers, two binkies, and a knit bootie are all the supplies you need. The mustache print is perfect for a boy!

Last year Abby made a diaper cake for a friend’s baby shower and she loved it.  Knowing that she liked diaper cakes, and knowing that she loves owls, I decided to make a cute Owl Diaper Cake for her.  Thanks to Kohl’s for providing the supplies for this owl diaper cake tutorial. Continue reading »

I received a Kohl’s gift card in order to check out Disney Frozen toys and gifts. All words and opinions are my own.

It’s no secret that Frozen is a huge hit in our house.  In fact, it’s a huge hit in almost every house.  More than a year after the theatrical release of Disney Frozen it’s still a phenomena that shows no signs of slowing.

I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Kohl’s. I received a gift card as a thank you for participating.

Spring is officially in the air, and I’m getting very excited.  It’s time to start thinking about wearing dresses, skirts, flip-flops, and short-sleeved shirts, to name a few.  All in some of the shades that make spring so light and airy – like pink, which is definitely in this year.

Bubbles and I were in Kohl’s today checking out some of the new looks for the season.  I had watched the Kohl’s Spring Fashion Hangout and I absolutely fell in love with some of the pieces they showcased.  One of the things I love about Kohl’s is how they transition runway looks into something wearable, and at prices that are significantly more affordable.

Spring Fashion at Kohl's #SpringAtKohls

One of my favorite is the fun and flirty pink dress with white flowers above.  I can see wearing it so many places!  Especially since we have Ashley’s graduation, then Austin’s graduation, and parties for both.  I think I’m going to need to pick up a few different ones! Continue reading »

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kohl’s back to school fashion for kids.  I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

A couple of weeks ago I shared with you all that Kohl’s might be a good choice for back to school fashion for kids.  They’re hard to beat when it comes to getting a great deal.  They already have great sale prices, but when you pair them with the sales passes that offer you 15-20% off your purchase (sometimes more, especially for those with a Kohl’s Card), plus Kohl’s Cash (usually $10 off your purchase), plus the occasional coupons, you’re talking about serious savings.

Back to School Fashion for Kids at Kohl's

Because I know that Kohl’s is one of the best places to get the biggest bang for my buck, we recently took Austin shopping there for a few back to school items.  By the time you get to his age – he’s a senior in high school this year – it’s not really about the backpack or even a “first day” outfit.  It’s more about finding clothes that you’re going to want to wear multiple times throughout the school years.
