Since I love taking pictures, I was trying to think of an inexpensive yet fun way to make a photo backdrop for my youngest daughter's 3rd birthday with a Rainbow Dash birthday party theme. I went to Dollar Tree and got plastic table covers in every hue of the rainbow and a pack of 15 white balloons to make into "clouds."

Just open each table cover and tape up the ends to the wall, then tie the balloons on string and hang them up.  Super simple to do, cost less than $7 and took only 10 minutes to put together, plus the time spent blowing up the balloons. It made my daughter so happy to have a special place to open her gifts and play with them.

Smile with Yoga: Fun, Mindful, and Engaging Yoga for Kids (and Their Parents) Book Review
My family loves books and we also have recently taken an interest in yoga.  We have a few yoga books for kids and also enjoy family yoga videos. Yoga is an excellent tool for children to keep them engaged and active. Whenever my children seem wound up or bored, yoga helps them relax and be more in tune with the world around them.  So when I was offered a chance to review a kid's yoga book called Smile with Yoga, I couldn't pass it up!  I was provided this book to help facilitate this review.  
Smile with Yoga is a children's book is full of fun illustrations of animals and kids doing yoga poses together with fun facts about each animal. It has beautifully written poems teaching kids 20 different yoga poses and games and mindfulness activities to do with fellow yogis!  The Smile with Yoga book is definitely one we're happy to have in our collection and I'm excited to share a little more about it with you!

Lansinoh Smartpump Double Electric Breast Pump Review
Having breastfed and pumped for 10 years, I have a lot of experience. During this time, I have found that no two breastfeeding journeys are alike.  Babies are all very different.  Breasts are all different, as well, so you can expect variation in suction and fit on different breast pumps. The one thing for me that has stayed consistent is the fact that I feel a breast pump is a product that is necessary for after a baby is born.  I produce a lot of milk! I’m a mother of five wonderful children and lucky to be a stay at home mother now. I have worked outside the home in the past and it's been nice to have the opportunity to have been able to try out several breast pumps throughout the years. I can say that some pumps truly are better than others. With that being said, here is my experience using the Lansinoh Smartpump Double Electric Breast Pump.

Ease Digestive Discomfort with Regular Girl

Regular Girl

We all know the benefits of getting a well balanced diet, but there are certain elements to my daily intake that I've struggled with. As a mom to 4, I try really hard to provide nutritious meals! I buy organic, gluten-free, minimally processed whole foods. We sit down at the table every evening and enjoy a homemade dinner together as a family. However, I've found that there are times that I get so busy with all my duties, so I end up not eating very good. Momlife is stressful and I admit I may eat too fast, or not enough sometimes. Plus, I know that I am not getting enough fiber. I've had a lot of bloating and digestive discomfort, so I started looking for fiber supplements.

Well, I was asked to give Regular Girl a try... I was very interested in learning more and read on the website that Regular Girl is a "synbiotic blend of clinically proven prebiotic fiber and probiotics that help maintain a healthy digestive balance for women, men and children." I was sent a package of products in order to facilitate this review and I'm excited to be sharing my experience with my readers.
