Easy Ice Pops For Summer

I partnered with Juicy Juice for this easy popsicle recipe in celebration of the Cars 3 movie premier. This post contains affiliate links.

Juicy Juicy Popsicle Recipe

As the sun rose on Friday morning, so did a little man chanting “Caws moowie tu-night? Tu-niiiight?” Yes, buddy, we’re going to see Cars 3 tonight. “Ma Caws moowie! I get dwessed.” But before he could even change out of his racecar PJs, I had a surprise for him and Bear. The night before, I froze some Juicy Juice in ice cube trays for them to celebrate the big day. Yes, mom of the year right here, folks – popsicles for breakfast! Read more

Cubbie Lee Toys Review - Noahs Ark Toy - Wooden Toy

Finding faith-based toys is important to me and my family. Of course Disney Princesses and Hot Wheels fill our playroom, but it’s nice to have toys that help to illustrate biblical teachings and stories from the Bible. I was recently introduced to Cubbie Lee Toys, a wooden toy company that offers puzzles, train tracks, and, my personal favorite, a little Noah’s Ark!

Boppy Helps a Growing Belly

Mom-to-be and Spit Up is the New Black contributor Tori partnered with Boppy for the following post. Samples were provided. This post contains affiliate links.

Now that I’m in my third trimester, I think my belly is getting bigger every day. Literally. I will catch a glimpse of it in the mirror before I go to sleep and would swear that my bump has grown since that morning when I got dressed. I have started to knock into things with it, and I’ve had to apologize to my growing son when I opened a closet door and bumped it right into his happy little home. Read more

Meeting Snoopy and PEANUTS at Castaway Bay

A special thank you to Castaway Bay in Sandusky, Ohio for providing me with complimentary tickets in exchange for the following post.

Castaway Bay Weekend

Each time I visit Castaway Bay, I always find something new to do with the kids. Maybe it’s because each year we visit, they’re another year older and ready for a new adventure. This was our third weekend trip to Castaway Bay, an indoor water park + hotel in Sandusky, Ohio. Read more

Just Born Sparkle Collection Baby Registry Picks

Mom-to-be and the newest Spit Up is the New Black contributor Tori partnered with Just Born for the following post. Samples were provided. This post contains affiliate links.

Crafting a baby registry is an essential element of preparing for impending parenthood — as much a part of the process as choosing a nursery theme and figuring out how to assemble furniture from illustrated-only instructions. It’s a great way to help out your friends and family who might want to share their excitement over the imminent arrival of the new tiny person you are creating by giving a gift. By registering, it lets well-wishers know exactly what you’d like and see what you’ve already received, hopefully preventing you from being the recipient of 13 nasal aspirators. It’s especially helpful to create a registry if someone will be throwing you a baby shower.
