FREE Love with Food Box and $7 Goodies Box Review


I posted this code on Facebook yesterday, but just in case you missed it–FBGIFT gets you a free Love with Food box! You can check them out here. Their boxes are normally $10 per month, and they donate a meal to a hungry child for every box they send.

In other foodie news, I recently signed up for Graze (review posted here) and Goodies. Unfortunately, I didn’t sign up in time to get the April Goodies box. The note on my account says “It looks like you didn’t receive this box. Here’s what you missed.” Ha ha, sweet of them.

Ah well, no reason I can’t review the contents anyways! Here’s what’s inside:

Pinspired Kid Bathrooms


So right now our baby bathroom is also our guest bathroom so hubby said it had to stay neutral for our company…bleh.

But! We’ll be moving next summer and if there’s a guest 1/2 bath, I get to decorate the kid’s bathroom for baby boy!!!

Don’t know why I’m so excited about this, but I’m already pinning some great ideas. Here’s a few of my favorites, but follow me on Pinterest (Julie @ for the full selection!

The last day of school is almost here and you might be looking for a way to thank the ones that have taken care of your kiddos 8ish hours per day all school year long. That’s commitment!

We still have a ways to go before we get to the schoolhouse steps, but I keep a lot of ideas for daycare teacher gifts.

Here’s some of my favorites:

Turn Your Child’s Artwork into a Treasured Friend


I love this idea–turning a drawing into a stuffed friend.

I have some experience free-handing stuffed animals. I made a copy of Grandpa’s teddy for baby boy:

Plenty of time gets spent playing on the iPhone, but do you ever just play with the phone itself?

Most iPhone users that have the “Siri” capability are aware that you can ask her funny questions. In case you need further inspiration, I’ve created a round up of funny things to ask her:

Valentine Date Night Movie List–10 Great Love Stories


Have plans tomorrow night?

Planning to stay in?

How about a picnic in the living room and a really great love story?  Here’s a list of 10 of my favorites:

Two people from two different sides of the track–kind of like Romeo and Juliet…but with a happier ending.

This movie came out while I was in high school and I love everything about it. Aside from being a great love story, it’s also a great story about overcoming peer pressure. This one also has a really great soundtrack!

Does anyone else LOVE Katherine Heigl???! This one is about a love story that develops between a child’s two very different godparents as they try to raise her together after her parents die.

Sweet and southern–love it! This is about a hot shot fashion designer who goes home to her southern roots to take care of some business only to find out she still has feeling for her first southern love.

Did I mention I love Katherine Heigl???! I love this story too. If you don’t watch it for the love story (which is really good), watch it for some of these dresses–very entertaining.

I love these types of movies–multiple stories that twist together with several of Hollywood’s top stars. The kid love story in this one is my favorite 🙂

A story about a famous actress finding love in a not so famous place.

A rags-to-riches type of love story for a girl and a guy finding out what really has value.

The final dance all by itself is worth watching this whole movie.

A delight for musical fans everywhere, this love story is a must watch.

However you celebrate, hope it’s great!



Valentine Books for Children


VDday books

Just in time to give to your little loves on the day of love!

Here are a few of my favorites broken down my age group:


Baby Love

Baby Love

This sweet cloth book is one of my gifts for my baby this Valentine’s Day. I actually first saw it at his daycare and all the babies love it. It’s got a different animal on each page and the flap lifts up to show how they say “I love you” to their babies. For example, the elephant says “I love you a ton!” and the dog says “I ruff you!” And the cloth nature of this book makes it virtually indestructible–bonus!

Counting Kisses

Counting Kisses

This is a kiss as you read book. It gives you a place to kiss baby (like their toes) and how many times you kiss them. It’s a very interactive way to play and say I love you while getting in that very important reading time.

Baby Valentine

Where is Baby’s Valentine

I really really WISH this was a little boy baby…or at least a gender neutral baby. This is another lift the flap book about a baby searching for her valentine. I’m sure baby boys would like it too.


love you

Guess How Much I Love You

Also great for babies, this book is about a little rabbit and big rabbit competing to show how they love each other more. Seen that phrase “I love you to the moon and back” all over everything? Yep, came from this book.

Love You Forever

Love You Forever

Now that I’m a mommy of a little man, I love this book so much more! It’s a really great story about a mommy that loves her baby all the way into her grey hair and rocking chair.

Big Kids:

mad libs

Dear Valentine Letters–Mad Libs

I loved Mad Libs as a kid and I can’t wait to fill them in with my baby after he grows up a little (…I take it back…I can wait…don’t grow up!). This is a fun way to interact with your kids on V-day.

dot and line

The Dot & The Line

This is a blast from the past-1968! This is a great book for your elementary school readers. It’s about a straight line that falls in love with a red dot and tries to find ways to impress her. It’s full of fun puns about young mathematics and the story of winning love is great too.

However you intend to celebrate, I hope your love day is filled with…well, LOVE!
