Seize the day because life is what you make it...

Why wait until January 1st?!

January 1, 2016 is around the corner, only 3 days away and that means that many of us are writing down our New Years resolutions, someplace where we can be reminded of our goals and must for the year. But why must we wait until the first day of 2016?

The Good Dinosaur & Disney by Okie Dokie Event Recap #JCPMoms

Photo credit to The Moms Facebook page - Nov 30, 2015
Last week we were able to attend a special The Moms event, where we got to see a special screening of Disney Pixars - The Good Dinosaur and check out some of the latest designs from Okie Dokie for JcPenny which featured our favorite characters from the movie. Just look at all the cute little kids that attended, can you spy Valentina? She's the tiniest one of all and looking at me to the far side of the stage. I'm not sure if she was hot and wanted to take off her Elmo dress or she just wanted to put on all the cute Okie Dokie clothes.

Help Honor Nurses and win $100 AMEX Gift Card from Pampers #ThankYouNurses

Disclosure: This Review was made possible by iConnect and Pampers. I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions are 100% mine.

When I was little I wanted to be someone that could help people, and as I grew up my heart was set on being a nurse but things changed and that wasn't possible. Being a nurse means sacrificing your family and personal life most of the time and that is something to admire and be grateful for. That is why I am so excited to share with you an amazing program that Pampers is launching.

Summer Infant 3D One Stroller Review

Disclosure: This post is not sponsored in anyway. I bought this stroller with my own money and doing an honest review about my experience with this stroller. All words and opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Grace Travel System
Summer Infant 3D-One
I purchased the Summer Infant 3D-One a few months ago, when I was looking for a light stroller to replace my Graco travel system. It was April and Spring was in the air, I needed a stroller that was light enough for me to carry down the 4 flight of stairs by myself without my husbands help. Since I was planning to walk a lot with Valentina. First we went to Babies 'R' Us and then to BuyBuyBaby where we saw the Summer Infant 3D - One.

School Season Is Here & A Giveaway


September means it's back to school in most places, I know in some states school has already started but here in NYC the first day of school will be next week on the 9th. That means lots of crazy and hectic days are ahead. As a mom of two it can get a little crazy, especially before and after school. I'm always looking for great snacks for on the go and quick to eat at home. That's where Entenmann's and Sara Lee comes in hand. These are already a household favorite and whenever we go to Target I make sure to stock up on these yummy treats, they are also great for Weekend soccer games.

Back To Life, Back To Reality...
