Mommy and Me - Learning Resources Giveaway

I would love to homeschool our kids!  Right now, I work full-time, so it's more of a dream.  And Ronan is only 2 and a half, so we're not quite there yet.  BUT, I would love to start doing more and more preschool type things with him.  Learning Resources has a bunch of fun ways to help preschoolers learn their colors, numbers, letters, etc.
This blog is giving away a set of the Jumbo Farm Counters!  Cooool! =)

Mommy and Me - Educational Insights Giveaway

I love the idea Educational Insights has with their bean bag sets!  The shapes set has bean bags in various shapes, with the name of the shape written on it.  Cooool!  I think these would be a very fun way to help Ronan learn his shapes!  And numbers, and letters...  Especially since he loves throwing.  We could set up a bucket, say which shape, and toss 'em in.  Would be grean for learning colors too. 
If I had an embroidery machine, I totally would whip up some of these!  I wonder what people use for filler in bean bags; is it really beans?

We'd loooooove to win!

Mommy and Me - New Jammies Giveaway

Now that the weather is starting to get a little colder, Ronan has cooperated with getting pajamas on more often.  We have a couple sleepers that (surprise!) still fit from last winter.  We would really love to try these adorable ones for him!  The turtle ones are perfect being that we have three pet turtles (have had 'em for over 10 years!).

Mommy and Me - Cat Bird Baby Mei Tai Carrier Giveaway

I love babywearing!  I did it frequently with Ronan, and now with Chiana.  I did have a mei tai for a short time with Ronan, but he never really used it.  I traded it for some diaper stuff when he was pretty little, so we never got a chance to really try it out and use it.
I would loooove to try a mei tai carrier with Chiana!  Or Ronan for that matter!  I've read a lot about them, and think it'd be perfect for our babywearing arsenal!

Mommy and Me - Family Stickers Giveaway

Have you ever seen those vehicles with little people stickers on the back window?  I've always thought those were pretty neat... to have a figure for each family member, and the pets too. 
I think it'd be fun to add to our car!!  Me, Jeff, Ronan, Chiana... and would hafta get an extra baby (and boy/girl).
They have magnets too - Ronan would love those for the fridge!

Home Grown Families - Geomate Jr Giveaway!

I've heard a little bit about geocashing and I think it would be a really neat way to get out with the kids and go treasure hunting!  I think it'd be fun to learn a little more about the public places in our area as a result.

And the treasure hunting would be really fun...  Would be fun to be investigative... Would be neat to find 'em and read the log books to see how many other people are involved... 

With Geomate Jr, it sounds like even *I* could find things!  Woot!

Kostiuk Crew - Pretzel Crisps Giveaway

I have a love/hate relationship with chips. I love eating them! But I hate that I crave them cuz I know they aren't that good for you.

Pretzels are better. But.... Pretzel Crisps - now that's a good match!

The Coupon Queen Bee - Hug A Monkey Baby Sling Giveaway

Chiana prefers to be held most of the time - no surprise there! The Moby wrap works pretty well - except it is a bit of a hassle to put on.

That, and Jeff accidentally washed it with his coat that had diesel spilled on it. We've tried many different things and it's been washed a bajillion times - but still smells like diesel.

I would looooooove to try the Hug A Monkey sling with her!

Adventures in all Things Food - Eco-Foil Pans Giveaway

Sometimes it is really nice to have disposable pans on hand. Before the baby was born I made up a bunch of hotdishes in disposable pans and froze them. That way we could have a meal with minimal cleanup. I did throw a couple in the dishwasher and re-used them, but it was reallly nice to not have to worry about it.

They're also great for vacations and food gifts to people! Or to bring to a party!

It's a great bonus that these pans are recyclable! Better for the earth!

The Minui HandySitt would be perfect for him when we go out, and for at home!
And it would be even more perfect for outings for Chiana in a few months!

PS: Princess DOT looks adorable and quite comfy in it! =)

Despite having sewn so many, I really love trying other types. Some of my favs are popular brands.

I Won!! - Conscientious Confusion - Diapers Etc GC

I won a $25 giftcard to Diapers Etc!!! I'm a little addicted to cloth diaper stuff and am sooo excited to have been able to shop there!!
I couldn't wait to to order.... so I decided to get a Bum Genius Elemental in Blossom pink for Chiana. The Elementals don't quite fit her yet, but they worked really well with Ronan and I'm guessing they'll be a fav with her too. AIOs are really nice cuz you don't have to do stuffing as with pockets (aka: laundry is quicker=).

Measuring Flower - De Odor Works Review and Giveaway

I'll admit it, I don't use deoderant very often. It just doesn't seem to make much difference. That, and I'd rather not use a million different things on my body if I don't have to. The De Odor Works sounds like a really neat product!

I like that it's more natural.

I really like that it's not a toddler mess waiting to happen! No stuff to smear everywhere!
