GB Travel Safe Sweepstakes #GBTravelSafe #IC #ad


“I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for GB. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

 As a Mother I never stop worrying about my child’s safety. Even before they were born I was reading, researching, asking, questioning, and making decisions to keep them safe. Looking back one of the first, and most important, decisions my husband and I made was choosing a car seat. As first time parents that can be scary and overwhelming. Thanks to companies like GB, it is even easier to find the right car seat to keep your kids safe beginning with that first trip home.

GB has been manufacturing car seats for over 25 years and their innovation has taken safety to the next level with the new GB Asana35 AP featuring the FirmFit System.


FirmFit Load Leg helps protect baby’s head, neck and spine in the event of a crash. This technology has been used in Europe for many years and we’re proud to be a pioneer in bringing it to the U.S. The FirmFit Load Leg is height adjustable and fits in most vehicles, even in the back seat center position.

TheFirmFit Arm helps achieve a better, tighter, hence SAFER, fit to the car with minimal effort by providing 20 lbs of additional force. The Firm Fit Arm will give you the confidence that your car seat is secure, every single time.

Adjusting harness straps can be nerve-wracking. (And easy to forget.) The FirmFit Harness takes the worry out. Simply pull the front strap to make the harness snug, and it conforms to the correct position on baby, every time. Harness and headrest move in harmony for constant Side Impact Protection, even as your baby grows.

Valentine Sweet Notes by Lovable Labels

I guess it’s cliche when I say I love Valentine’s Day but I don’t care! I know people should express their love for one another daily but lets face it, life gets in the way sometimes. I always like to do fun little things for the people on Valentine’s Day to remind them how much they are loved. With two little ones at home I don’t know how practical that will be this year. Luckily, Lovable Labels has created some adorable Valentine Sweet Notes that are the perfect way to let someone know they are loved. I can’t wait for Parker to give these to his daycare teachers!


Valentine Sweet Note packs include 8 double sided cards printed on heavy card stock and available in 6 different designs for only $5.00. Valentine Sweet Notes are available for purchase until February 13, 2015.

The Greatest Gifts for Dad at Best Buy #GreatestDad

I am so excited for Rob to be back home in time to celebrate Father’s Day this year. I already have a cute craft project lined up for Parker to give him but I wanted to get him something special to celebrate the day and thank him for all he has done for us over the last year. It was prefect timing that I received word that I was chosen to help spread the word about the #Greatestdad campaign.
The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free

The Best Buy Gift Center has gift ideas for any type of father including:

The Entertainer: Gifts for the dad who aspires to set up the ultimate man cave complete with gaming, sports, movies, listing to music, or just hanging out. This dad loves to share so it also has everything at the ready for entertaining a crowd.

The Gizmo Guru: Gifts for the dad that always wants to take his tech to the next level with the latest and greatest – always connected, at home and on the go.
The Fitness Fanatic: Dad who doesn’t let age slow him down.  He has no fear and loves adventure, but aspires to be/keep healthy as well. Dad uses technology in a wide range of ways in his active life both for himself and the family for instance; Go Pro and Fit Bit to track activity and recording adventures, to portable batteries for on the go fitness, camping while listening to music / watching movies on the smartphone

The Memory Maker: For the dad that makes sure that not only all the memories are captured and stored (video/photo) but keeps the family organized and under control. Gifts for him make his life easier; dad pays the bills with laptop, videos kids, back up storage for pictures, prints out schedules for baseball practices and games, etc.
My husband wears several hats and could easily find products within each of those categories that he would love. He has always been into gizmos so I decided to see what the Best Buy Gift Center recommended for the Gizmo Guru. Since he was accepted into the Marine Corp Command & Staff College and will be starting in July, I thought the Logitech – Harmony Smart Wireless Keyboard would be a great gift for him. It’s a practical gift he will use daily and will hopefully be a remind on the long nights how much we love him and how proud we are!
The Logitech – Harmony Smart Wireless Keyboard comes with the 2 USB nano receivers, USB extender, micro USB cord, power adapter, 2 AA batteries, Harmony hub, IR blaster, and the owner’s manual. Some of the features I know Rob will love are the integrated touchpad, one-touch activity control, harmony app, and wireless USB connectivity.

We know that education and learning continues when the school day ends and there are a lot of parents and guardians out there who can use a little help paying for various activities and learning opportunities.

Sponsored: Get a head start on head lice this back-to-school season – Visit

The below content is sponsored by Sanofi Pasteur’s Headfirst! Expert Advice on Lice campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
It’s almost that time again! The back to school season is just around the corner, and with that comes preparing for a new teacher, a new classroom and a new year.
One thing that parents may not prepare for is … head lice! The truth of the matter is, head lice are common and can happen to any child. An estimated 6 to 12 million infestations occur each year in the U.S., which means many parents are likely to experience firsthand how lice can impact their children, families or friends.
Unfortunately, head lice are common in elementary schools – about one out of every 100 elementary school children becomes infested. Many parents may not know where to turn for accurate information.

It’s important to remember the most common way to spread head lice is head-to-head contact. Thinking ahead with things like checking with parents before slumber parties to find out if anyone recently had lice, or teaching your child to avoid sharing brushes or hats is a good start.

So if you are trying to get rid of head lice, or a parent who always likes to be prepared, visit Headfirst! Expert Advice on Lice for more information.
