Dinosaur Rawr Baby Shower Decoration Ideas #FluffinAwesome

Baby Shower Food Ideas

Decorating for a baby shower can be one of the most fun (and sometimes stressful) parts of planning a baby shower.  Here is a roundup of fun ideas for a Dinosaur themed cloth diaper baby shower. Click back to yesterdays post for directions on how to build the cloth diaper cake pictured above. Use some of the smaller baby gifts for decorations!  Balm Baby Diaper Balm and Molly's Suds were used to help decorate the cloth diaper cake.  You could also hang baby clothes from the clothesline on the wall. Include your food in the decorating.  Blueberries, candy, and carrots were all included in this theme.  The giant clothespin (found at Michael's) can be used many different ways.  We used it to label the Dino-Treats for the guests. Larger clothespins (also found at Micheal's) were used for the wall decorations and hold a few cloth diapers, along with a ribbon streamer decorated with baby dinosaur eggs.  Each dinosaur egg has a sweet saying such as baby boy, ...

Win a 3-Day Ticket to Camp MommyCon in Denver

Camp MommyCon Giveaway

About 11 years ago my husband and I (and our baking baby boy) took a trip to Winter Park, CO just outside of Denver.  It was at the end of ski season and the slopes were closed.  Since I was baking a baby boy I wouldn't have been able to ski anyways.  It did snow while we were there and I'm dying to make a return trip to Denver and the surrounding areas. Unfortunately it won't be to attend the 3-Day Camp MommyCon, June 20-22nd because my son will be earning his first degree black belt that weekend (seriously proud mommy moment here).  Just because I can't go doesn't mean that you can't!!  The MommyCon team is giving away a 3 day pass to a lucky reader!! Camp MommyCon has 3 jam packed days full of parenting sessions that will knock your socks off.  They will have sessions on babywearing, doulas, essential oils, sex after baby, cloth diapering, car seat safety, yoga, homeschool, and so much more!  They are ending each day with s'mores, campfire songs, and movie nights.  If you ...

Have you heard of I See Me personalized children's books yet?  We have a few of the books in the series and my kids LOVE them.  When you order one of the books you give them your child's name and they add their name to the story.  For instance, in My Very Own Fairy Tale, each page reveals a new fairy and tells her name.  The first letter in the name of the fairies spell out my daughters name.  In the end they crown her to be their fairy princess - how sweet! You can enter first name, middle name, and last name if you want a really long story.  Each page is beautifully illustrated and it's so sweet that it includes your child's name.  They would make a great birthday gift, holiday gift, or perfect for special events in a child's life.

Late July Organic Snack Giveaway

Late July Organic Snack Giveaway

One of my favorite finds at BlogHer '12 was Late July Organic Snack Chips!  They are a regular staple in our house now and I would much rather buy Late July than the alternative.  They are made with organic ingredients (USDA certified), gluten-free, and a strong proponent of the GMO labeling project!  The flavors are D-E-L-C-I-O-U-S and taste great by themselves or with your favorite salsas, cheese dip, guacamole, or taco dip.  My kids love them so much that I usually pack a small bag of Late July in their lunch for an eco-friendly lunch box. Would you like to win a basket full of Late July Organic Snacks? a Rafflecopter giveaway Disclosure: I received samples of Late July Organic Snacks free for my review.  The opinions expressed in this post are my honest opinions and not influenced by the sponsor.   ...

YumEarth Organics Lollipops and Gummy Bears Review & Giveaway

YumEarth Organic Lollipops

I'll be honest with you, I let my kids eat candy.  I have a candy bowl that sits on top of my fridge and they get to pick a piece about once a day.  We use it for rewards for all sorts of things...eating all their dinner, helping with the chores, being nice to each other, and sometimes just because they are so darn cute.  Yes, I admit it's not the best way to reward our kids but it works for us. I do try to limit their junk food so I look for healthier candy and treats.  There aren't a lot of options for health food stores locally so I'm limited to the popular grocery and drug stores for our shopping.  They don't normally have a large organic or natural food selection - although the selection is growing.  I was very happy to find out that a new organic candy company, YumEarth Organics, can now be found at Publix, Walgreens, and even Homegood's stores.  I actually saw them on the shelves at Marshall's just last week and heard that they are launching in Target stores soon!
