Ready For Spring with FabKids

This post is Sponsored by FabKids but my opinions are 100% my own!

Ready-For-Spring-With-Fabkids

I can’t take anymore snow.

I can’t take anymore cold.

I need Spring.  badly.

I am Ready For Spring with FabKids!  Well my kids are.

So when I received the February FabKids look book, I was very excited to see some dresses that screamed SPRING!!!  I’m always happy with the selection but it’s time to move away from the colors of Winter and onto the colors of Spring.  And FabKids clearly knew that we needed that because their look book was filled with the colors of Spring.

Including this adorable dress for my little one…

She won a bike at her Father Daughter Dance a couple of weeks ago and since we can’t get to our shed (backyard is full of snow and ice!) it’s sitting in my living room.  She felt the magic of Spring come over her when she put on this fun  Graffiti Bow Back dress so she jumped on her bike for me to take a picture of her.  (She’s too cute!)

I love the pink leggings as they are amazingly soft and so comfortable (I know I say this over and over again each month!).  The color pink is perfect with this dress.   Our dog Max wanted to get in the picture too.

My older girl isn’t enjoying picture taking lately.  I think it’s her age, but I still take them, it’s just harder to get her to smile properly.  But she does love her Rainbow Stripped dress  from FabKids this month with cute Coral Orange Fab Soft leggings.  The colors definitely set the mood for Spring.

Can I just tell you that my little one is excited each month also for her sister’s dresses.  Why?  Because she knows she’ll get to wear them when she gets bigger!

I love my girl in these colors and the stripes are so fun!   She can’t wait for it to get warmer out so she can wear this dress even without the leggings.  And with sandals of course!

Please don’t mind the hair on these two beauties.  Brushing it si not their thing and we are in a constant battle over it.  I can’t wait until they spend more time brushing their hair than anything else.  But then they’ll be teens so I’m good with messy hair right now!

Battle your Cold & Flu Symptoms this Winter with Vicks DayQuil and NyQuil Severe

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/P&G.

Vicks-DayQuil-NyQuil-Severe

I absolutely dread cold & flu season.  Having two children in elementary school,  I cringe when I hear their friends are sick.  Because I know that means it’s only a matter of time before it hits us.  Plus my husband is currently going through cancer treatments and getting chemotherapy every 2 weeks so I really don’t want my family to get hit with the flu even more this year.   And if I get sick, I still need to take care of everyone else.

But it happens unfortunately even if I tell my kids to wash their hands over and over again, sometimes those germs get by.   So I’m glad to live very close to a Walmart because they have everything I need to get through cold and flu season. I can grab Vicks Severe, Puffs tissues, ingredients for chicken soup and even a warm blanket all at Walmart.  Plus they have the best everyday value on all my health care needs including Vicks DayQuil and NyQuil Severe which are available at Walmart.com and in stores and are perfect for Cold & Flu season!

This post is Sponsored by Walt Disney Animation Studios but my opinions are 100% my own!

Have you heard the news?  Yesterday  (2/24/15) BIG HERO 6 was released on Blu-ray and DVD!! From Walt Disney Animation Studios (“Frozen,” “Wreck-It Ralph”), Disney’s “Big Hero 6” introduces you to a lovable robot who will change your world. Join Baymax (voice of Scott Adsit) and Hiro Hamada (voice of Ryan Potter) in a comic adventure that will make your heart soar as they learn about teamwork and becoming more than you thought you could be.

Did you also hear that it won an Oscar for the Best Animated Feature Film!!!!

Big-Hero-6-Best-Animated-Film

Did you see this in the theaters?  We never made it there but when it arrived the girls were all over it!  Baymax is so cute and lovable that you can’t help but fall in love with him!  The girls want a Baymax now, I told them they will have to settle for our dog “Max” instead because that’s as close as they will get!   BIG HERO 6 is a funny movie that is perfect for the entire family.

ABOUT BIG HERO 6

With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is an action-packed comedy adventure that introduces Baymax, a lovable, personal companion robot, who forms a special bond with robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to Baymax and his diverse group of friends — adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred — who transform into a band of unlikely heroes. Bring home Disney’s “Big Hero 6,” featuring comic-book-style action and hilarious, unforgettable characters — it’s fun for the whole family!
