If you're in the Orlando area, check out CoCo Key's newest water resort. You can visit for the day or stay longer.
I'll post my full review and pictures of it all next week.
Nothing makes me happier than trolling the Internet and finding great websites.
Nothing makes Roo happier than me finding great toy websites.
We agreed that we wanted to share it with my readers, her hopes are that you will buy great toys for your kids too.
"Ebeanstalk is a website dedicated to selecting great developmental toys for kids. They have a fabulous team of moms and a great team of child experts that help them pick out the best toys by age, so you can be sure your child gets toys that have been specifically matched to his or her age! "
This post was written as a pre-review for Ebeanstalk toys. I was not compensated in any way for this post. Please see my full disclosure policy for more information.
Sometimes being a Mom is hard work… really hard work. And while being an employee of the company called Mom, sometimes I lose track of how important it is to be healthy… and happy.
Twitter Moms, in conjunction with Tropicana Trop50, is "celebrating the little things we can do that add up to make a huge difference in bettering ourselves and our health, wellness and happiness!"
They asked me to participate and post my “10 Little Things that Lead to a Happier, Healthier You.”
Now remember, my list is geared towards me. But feel free to adapt it to fit your lifestyle.
1- Quit drinking soda -FYI: Today is day 2 of no soda and while yesterday I had a pounding headache, today is much better/
2- Exercise -I’m a runner, have been for years (!) so my goal is to run at least four times a week.
3- EAT BETTER!! -It’s an obvious tip, you eat better you feel better.
4- EAT LESS! - Another obvious point, you eat less you have less calories to turn into fat.
5- Read – When my brain is happy, I’m happy.
6- Fresh Air – Another happy brain tip. Fresh air means I’m outside with my girls not parked in front of the TV rotting my brain.
7-Laugh – Laughter makes me happy, plain and simple. So if I laugh I will be leading a happier life.
8- Have a big breakfast – eating more in the morning means I eat less during the day. So I eat a breakfast fit for a king, trust me, it works.
9- Take your Vitamins – Vitamins pack lots of nutrients and essentials that make your body cooperate, so they are a must.
10- Enjoy life – Those dirty clothes on the floor, they can wait. That sink full of dishes, it’s not going anywhere. Moments that involve my family, smiles, laughter and lots of togetherness mean the world to me and nothing makes me happier.
So there you have it, my happy healthy tips.

Living in Florida means tons and tons of sunshine.
It also means lots and lots of sunscreen.
The only problem with sunscreen and lots of sunshine is that in my scatterbrain-ness, I tend to forget to slather it all over my children.
I also hate all the ingredients on the back that I can’t even pronounce.
With Earth Day around the corner, I decided it was time to ditch the standard sunscreen and find an eco-friendly brand that wouldn’t irritate my daughter’s sensitive skin.
Enter Eco Mom!
Eco Mom formerly Sprout Baby, is a eco-friendly website that connects Moms with products that are safe for their children and the environment.
From their website : EcoMom.com is about bridging the gap between making healthy choices and making easy choices. We created EcoMom because we care and are concerned for babies and their moms, our families and our communities. We want every mom to be an EcoMom because being an EcoMom means making choices that are good for all of us, and the planet which we all share.
Jody with Eco Mom sent me Supergoop Sunscreen Wipes and Everyday Lotion.
The sunscreen wipes were heaven sent as all I needed to do was swipe my daughter’s skin before I dressed her in the morning or if I forget which I tend to do, swipe the exposed parts before she takes off at the playground. They are super convenient and they don’t have that nasty, nose curling smell that most sunscreens come with. The wipes have a SPF 30 and are made without parabens, oxybenzone or fragrances.
The Everyday Lotion was snagged for myself. It was a sheer lotion that didn’t feel like it was caked on and provided me with a SPF 30.
Eco Mom also has a million other products that will make your life easier. They also have an EcoPass program which allows readers a 15% on discount on every order when you purchase a $99 annual membership to Eco Mom. Another benefit to an EcoPass, you’ll get free shipping on every purchase.
You can follow them on Twitter and make them your bff’s on Facebook. Also check out their newsletter for great information delivered straight to your inbox.
Disclosure: I was provided with Supergoop wipes and lotion in return for my honest review. All opinions are 100% mine. For more information please see my full disclosure statement.
One of the best things about having girls is the outfits.
Sure I’m not exactly a fashionista with my own clothes (You saw the garden boots and tube socks). Some say I need help… and lots of it.
But my girls, they are trendy.
See. Told You.
Both of them are wearing the super hip and super cool outfits from The Crazy Baby.
The Crazy Baby is the place to go when you want Cool Baby Clothes. From their website: Crazy Baby Clothing Co. is dedicated to providing top quality punk baby gifts, top quality customer service, and lightning fast shipping. We are pleased to be able to provide the most cutting edge designs at great prices while still maintaining superior quality. Crazy Baby Clothing Company is dedicated to becoming the number one source for alternative infant and toddler clothing, gifts, and accessories in the U.S.
The outfits we received are the Argyle Skull T-Shirt and Onesie. They both are 100% cotton and super soft. I was really surprised at how soft they were because kid's clothes normally are kinda rough. And the best thing was that after washing them they still maintained their softness.
Roo loved her shirt and loved the fact that she matched her sister.
I loved all the compliments I got when we went out and about in them.
The Crazy Baby has tons of different funky clothes to choose from. They have cool baby onesies and t shirts for all punky styles. They are perfect for birthday gifts and baby showers. You can purchase them directly from their website.
I received a shirt and onesie free in exhange for my honest review of the Crazy Baby's clothing. All opinions are 100% my own. Please see my full disclosure policy for more information.
