The Custom Vinyl Shop review & Giveaway


Since we have moved in we have been working on making Hailee's room to show off what she likes. We are currently working on making it to her liking.

I came across The Custom Vinyl Shop and found the perfect decals for her room. We are doing her theme purple black & green like her cheerleading colors so I picked her out 96 Polka Dots 4-color Stickers. I chose three colors purple, black & lime green, there are 35 different colors to choose. The vinyl arrived in a tube along with easy instructions to follow.

Her room isn't ready to paint yet so I can not add them to the wall but we did try one out on her door to see how easy it was to put on. I used a credit card to slide it smooth so there were no bumps. Its so easy even she can help when we finish it up.

You can search wall decals by room or theme to make it easier to find exactly what you are looking for. You can also choose a decal for your macbook or laptop.

There are many different decals to choose from such as quotes & sports. The boys would love the dirtbikes. You can even choose a personalized decal!

Hailee wishes they had an actual cheer decal!

Sili Squeeze Review & Giveaway

The big kids love eating the squeezable yogurts & applesauces so we had let Braxton try, it turned into a giant mess, he squeezed it everywhere and none got into his actual mouth to eat.

I was sent one of the coolest products I have come across and it has been our most used product! The Sili Company sent me the Ultimate Combo Pack that includes one 4oz spill-proof Sili Squeeze + one 6oz free-flowing Sili Squeeze with Eeeze.

Braxton can now eat all the yogurt and applesauce he wants all by himself with no spills at all, he has squeezed the spill proof Sili squeeze and nothing comes out, unlike other products it truely is spill proof.

We are going camping next week and I will be packing the Sili squeeze for sure!

The 4oz spill proof sili squeeze is made for babies 6 months and up and is great for anything pureed or just applesauce & yogurts.

The 6oz free flowing sili squeeze is not spill proof and intended for kids 2 and up.



It did take him a few minutes to figure it out before anything went into his mouth, the website says with younger ones it make take a few tries to get it just like with anything else.

Your child will discover that by gumming (pinching) the nipple valve with their mouth, while simultaneously squeezing the silicone body of the Sili Squeeze, will give them the results they want-food!
For first-time Sili Squeezers, we recommend putting your little one’s favorite puree (applesauce, yogurt, berry blend etc.) inside the Sili Squeeze™ to make your child’s first experience an exciting learning process.

Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium

We surprised the kids with a trip to the zoo today, it was a beautiful day for it. If you are planning to go make sure you check for construction we were a little arriving then what we had planned.

When we finally got there it was not crowded at all. We got right in and took the elevator up to the zoo.

Braxton was very excited to see the flamingos first he loved them.

Braxton loved everything he saw and tried to get them. he called everything a Kitty.

All the kids had a wonderful time.

If you visit the zoo be sure to watch the Sea Lion show, they are so cute and very smart!!




I loved the polar bear, he was so cute, I'm not sure what he was doing but he "danced" for about 20 minutes, he backed up dancing into the cave then would come out and dance back in, over & over. Everyone loved it!!




The aquarium is nice to go inside & get outta the sun for a bit, lots of fun animals inside and we all loved the penguins!







How about this sweet little gorilla!!




Throughout the zoo around the exhibits they have these signs that have info & facts about the animals, very neat and I learned Elephants are pretty fast for being so big!


I'm pretty sure this guy only had one arm?







The kids loved being "turtles"



Overall we had a wonderful day and spent hours looking at all the beautiful animals.

A huge thank you to the Pittsburgh Zoo for providing my family tickets for the day, we had a wonderful time!!

If you are looking for a great way to spend time with the family head to Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium.

Tender Corporation Review & Giveaway!

Its mosquito season, I hate the little bugs and so do my kids. We live in the country so we get them bad!

Tender Corporation sent us a few products to help out. 




Our package included:
AFTER BITE® NEW & IMPROVED
AFTER BITE® KIDS
NATRAPEL® 8-HOUR WIPES

EASY ACCESS BANDAGES

As soon as we received the package Hailee busted open the After Bite and used it on her face where she had a horrible itchy bite. She loved how fast it helped the itch.

So loves the 8 hour wipes, she can rub it on everywhere and not miss a spot with the spray.

They are Deet free and contain Picaridin, I love bug repellent that  has Picaridin in it. I find that its the only stuff that really works! 8-plus hours of insect protection is a huge plus!!

We have a 4 day camping trip coming up and these products are already packed in the first aid kit.

We love the products and will be sure to purchase some more item from Tender Corporation.
