Our Little Girl Needed Glasses- How To Shop Online for Your Next Pair!

Reece Jakob 6007 BrownHaving kids seems to give me the opportunity for a lot of firsts, some good, some not so good! The first time I had to tell someone over the phone there was baby puke on my wall, I sat there for a minute and thought, never thought that would be something I would have said 5 years ago! Anyways with those crazy moments come some good ones that make a big difference in your families lives.

In October our middle daughter came home from school to inform us that she was having trouble seeing the board. Now if you know our daughter this could mean a few things! There could be someone in her way and doesn’t want to ask them to move or she could no longer sit next to a friend in class and she needs “to move” to see better. So we went through our normal questions of what do you mean you can’t see the board? She then said the board looked blurry. Knowing that she had a eye exam coming that week at school I told her to let’s get the results of your vision screening at school and see what they say! Sure enough the next day I was notified that our middle daughter had failed not once, not twice but three times! We then scheduled her visit with the pediatrician to only find out that in deed she would need GLASSES!!

Now for our oldest daughter this would have been a dream come true! She has been asking for glasses for over a year now, so they could match her outfits- even though she doesn’t need them! Never thought it was uncool to have perfect vision! So she is settling for the non-prescription kind from Claire’s! For our middle daughter this means extra responsibility, teasing, names and loosing friends, according to her! She tends to be a little over dramatic when it comes to new things! Any who, after several weeks of begging and pleading that she will look great no matter what she is wearing!

Glasses USA Review 2

After a visit to the Optometrist, we got her prescription and all the measurements that were needed and headed to GlassesUSA.com to order our daughter’s first pair of eyeglasses. Never having glasses myself, these numbers and measurements were like a foreign language to me. I did rely on my hubby, who wears glasses, and the tools available on GlassesUSA to get just the right glasses. With so many choices, I needed all the help we could get.

We first decided on what style frame she wanted by the ones she tried on at the doctors office, this gave us a great starting point. We then took the measurements of the bridge, temple, width, height and total width to figure out what size would fit best. After looking through many different styles, colors and frames, she narrowed it down to about 15 choices we then headed to GlassesUSA.com Virtual Try It Mirror! This is an amazing feature that you can upload a picture of yourself and try on the frames you like! Check out to see if they look good, the shape is right for your face and it’s just neat to see what you look like with each pair before you buy!

Simply pick your frames, enter your prescription, email or fax your prescription, enter your payment & shipping information and wait about a week. You will receive a confirmation as well as an update as to where they are in the process of your order- as well as a confirmation when they are shipped! Delivery was very quick and arrived packed safely! I have to say for our first order online, I was completely impressed with the customer service and just how easy it was! We will definatly shop GlassesUSA for our next pair of glasses!

Bobee Diaper & Wipe Dispenser- Wall Mounted & Easy To Use!

When you have little ones, you find yourself with baby stuff everywhere! Diaper bags in every corner, diapers, wipes, bottles, toys, clothes, burp rags, bibs, on every inch of your home! Having a baby seems to make even the most organized person a little crazy with clutter! But with so many products to choose from, different sizes, colors, shapes, materials, and so on, it can be hard to find something that will fit you and your families needs! Then I found Bobee Diaper & Wipes Dispenser!

Getting to test out the latest Diaper and Wipes Dispenser from Bobee was something I was looking forward to! I love having everything organized and feel that you must have a place for everything or you will end of with clutter every where! So having a designated place for just wipes and diapers was pretty interesting!

Bobee Diaper Stacker / Diaper Caddy / Wipe Dispenser Award Winning Diaper Organizer for Nursery (Customizable, includes Colored Decals)Your dispenser will come with all the items you need to mount to the wall, decorate and dispense your favorite diapers and wipes! There are many colors you can choose from, mix and match to make your own combination- making your own design is half the fun!

The dispenser slides onto a mounting plate that attaches to your wall. You may install the plate with provided drywall screws and anchors, or you may mount it into a wall stud. Complete mounting instructions and mounting hardware (drywall screws and drywall anchors) are included with your dispenser.  We do not recommend you hang the dispenser directly over the changing table or anywhere that is accessible to your baby.

This dispenser holds about 40-50 standard cloth diapers, regular diapers and pull up and a regular size pack of wipes! With the easy to dispense design, you can use one hand to grab a diaper or wipe while using the other hand to hold that rolling baby! I would have to say this would be best for the hubby! I don’t know how many times I have seen him scramble trying to figure out how to keep one of our girls on the changing table while he tried to grab a diaper or wipe! This way you have one hand FREE to keep your baby safely on the changing table!

Bobee Diaper & Wipes DispenserMy favorite part about this dispenser is that it will be a product that I will continue to use for years to come. Even after the babies are out of diapers and fully potty trained, you can add this dispenser to your bathroom. This dispenser can be easily removed, change your stickers to match the bathroom decor and mounted right near the toilet. This will make a great place to add our little ones flush-able wipes and pull ups then keep them nice and organized in this super cute dispenser!

Check your local baby retailers for this Bobee Diaper & Wipes Dispenser, Bobee listing here or on Amazon! You can snag one of these for around $50!

I received the product above to conduct this review. No other compensation was received and as always my opinion is 100% my own!

Belly Fat Diet for Dummies + Berry Smoothie Recipe

Belly Fat Diet For Dummies (1118345851) cover image

One of our goals this year, not only for myself, but for my family as well is to eat better and for my hubby and I to drop a few pounds! One spot that my hubby and I both have problems with is belly fat! It never seems to go away and just looking at food, I seem to gain 2 more pounds around my waist!

Belly Fat Diet for Dummies is the latest book from the For Dummies collection giving you a complete layout and easy to follow process to loosing that belly fat!

  • Identify what type of belly fat you have and see how it effects your health
  • Safely loose the belly fat with tips and nutrition
  • Try belly slimming foods and fat burning exercises to slim your waist
  • Get immediate results with this proven program

My hubby was my guinea pig on this one, since he feels that he has the least amount of time to work out and slim his belly! After just one week he did notice a difference in his waist line! He started out slow and follow their step by step basic exercises like Basic Planks, Arm Circles, Swingin Abs, Chair Leg Raises, Laying Leg Raises Oblique Planks- which he thought was great since he could do them at home with out the need of a expensive gym! I am sticking to this routine, since I don’t seem to like exercise as much as the hubby! Although these moves are simple enough for me to do throughout the day, between chores, driving the kiddos back and forth to school and running errands, which I love!

Once you have mastered the basics, you can head right on into the Super Belly Blasters which can help you drop belly fat pretty quickly. I am still working my way up to these, but the hubby had no problem! There is a Week by Week Workout schedule to help you keep on track with what you should be accomplishing each day during your Belly Fat workout! Even though exercise is key to helping you burn the belly fat, you need to incorporate better and healthier foods into your diet to keep that belly fat in check!

Knowing what you are eating and what is in your food is going to help you learn quickly what is good for you and what is not! Chapter 11 has a whole section dedicated to decoding food labels and nutritional claims on packaging! There are many things that I did not know, that there is a difference in the meaning of low calorie, light calories, low fat and light fat! I guess I had just always assumed that they all pretty much meant the same thing, but there is a break down of what each claim means!

Here is one of my favorite recipes from the book- Berry Smoothies! This was great to be able to make ahead of time and take with me on the go!

Belly Blasting Berry Smoothie Recipe- 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of fat free plain Greek yogurt

Great Family Hair Care Products + Keeps Away Lice!

Powered by Zen Cart :: The Art of E-Commerce

I love hair care products! What I most love is products that  I can use for the entire family! With 3 girls and a hubby that all tend to use their own bottle of shampoo and their own bottle of conditioner, drives me crazy! Our bath tubs seem to be cluttered with bottles all the time! I hate having to buy so many different hair care products and did I mention the clutter, I hate that the most!

Original Sprout offers a great collection of family friendly hair care products that not only is safe and healthy for every member of your family but it is affordable as well. With the amount of hair care products we use, we spend a small fortune on products that barely clean our hair, let alone take care of it.

Mommy’s Loving Litter from Amazimals- Fun Interactive Pet!

With 3 girls it is hard to find new toys that we don’t already have. We can only have so many dolls, dress up stuff and stuffed animals. Most toys in our house get passed down to the younger girls and eventually we are just trying to find different colors or styles of toys we already have to give as new gifts. So when we find a whole new line of toys, I get a little excited, especially for our youngest since she will get something new of her own!

Amazimals is latest collection from Blip Toys, creator of the highly popular Squinkies. Amazimals are interactive pets, promoting role play, teaching responsibility and allows little ones to care for something else. Just like a real pup without all the real life dog messes. There are 17 pets that will be available in 6 assortments:

  • Weeful: These adorable tiny pets fit in the palm of a child’s hand. Stroke their back and they burst with excitement, make animal sounds wag their tail and move their head up and down. The Weefuls assortment includes a kitty, bunny, and four dogs; Husky, Chihuahua, Rottweiler and Basset Hound.
  • Tickle Pets: Tickle Pets are ready for play! When softly touched under their chins- they will happily bark and kick their paws up and down. The Tickle Pets assortment includes three dogs; a Boxer, Terrier and Beagle.
  • Whimsy Walkers: Whimsy Walkers are always ready to go for a walk. Pat their backs to watch them scamper, walk and hop while making all sorts of animal sounds. The Whimsy Walkers assortment includes; a bunny, kitty and a Beagle puppy.
  • Potty Pets: Potty Pets drink and need wet just like real puppies. Feed them with their bottle until they are full, then take them out to tinkle. The Potty Pets assortment features two puppies; a Yellow Lab and a Pointer.
  • Mommy’s Loving Litter: Help Mommy Misty take care of her new born puppies. Place the tiny puppies next to their mommy and listen to them nurse while she makes soothing sounds and happily wags her tail.
  • Peppy’s Puppy Tricks: Peppy is full of love and delight. He sits up-right hungry for attention- pet his back, pat his head or touch his front paws and he performs all sorts of fun puppy tricks.

We got the opportunity to try out the Mommy’s Loving Litter. Misty is the mommy dog who comes with her 2 little pups- are the softest puppies we have ever had when it comes to stuffed animals that move or makes sounds of some kind. Most toys that we have that move or makes sounds have a very large, hard base with just a little fluff or fur on it. These are toys that are not friendly for our girls to take to bed with them. But Misty and her pups, are soft and you barely noticed the hard inter casing. Misty wags her tail when her pups are close and you can hear them suckle as they feed! The puppies connect right to Misty’s belly as they feed and even give each other kisses once they are done, which my girls loved the most!

If you have younger children that are looking to have a puppy or dog, getting this Mommy’s Loving Litter- it may help teach them all the responsibilities that come along with having a puppy, which may help you buy some time til they change their mind about getting a real one!!

Released this month only at Walmart you can grab these Amazimals from $8 to $25 depending on which fun pet you choose!
