Let the Cuteness Show, Not the Diapers: Pampers Cruisers at Target

I recently talked about diapers and here I am again. Funny how diapers become such a big part of your life when you have not one, but two kids, in them. Before I had kids, I had no idea about the different brands and daytime versus nighttime, and training, etc. Now I am an expert…although I will not be putting that on my resume!

Now that Aubrey is on the move, walking around the house like she owns the place, she needs diapers that move with her and protect her no matter where she goes. And because I like putting her in adorable outfits, I want her to have a diaper that doesn’t steal the show from her cuteness. That’s where Pampers Cruisers comes in! The best part? They’re available at Target…giving mama a reason to S-H-O-P!

Look at how thin they are!

Oh my, it is such a task to get Aubrey to stay still for photos. Go, go, go 24/7 is what she’s about. I sat her on the chair, ran over and grabbed my camera to snag this one as she was getting up….

…to run over and attack!

The only person that can get her to stay is Daddy :)

She’s obviously not thinking about her diaper, and I get to see her in her cute outfits with out a big diaper getting in the way…even with skinny little horizontal-striped pants!

Catch Up on Fall Shows with Netflix

I don’t know about you guys, but wow is Summer television lacking. We have a couple of shows that we watch just to have something on while eating or relaxing, but nothing that we MUST WATCH. This past weekend, the Walking Dead spin-off started, so that is something new for us to anxiously await each week (why can’t every series be released all at once like Netflix?). So I am certainly looking forward to some of our favorite shows returning in the Fall, as well as maybe trying out a few new ones.

But, if you’re like me, you may need a little refresher as to how the last season ended. Or maybe there is a show you’ve been meaning to watch for the past few seasons and want to start at season 1 before picking up on the new season. Netflix can help! They have so many shows available to stream so you can get caught up and ready for the Fall lineup!

Here are some shows that will be returning to tv this Fall with prior seasons available on Netflix!

Netflix Collage

My Netflix home page has a few sections showing the available tv shows, including both prime time, cable and Netflix-exclusive series. Just a click to get started!

I have been wanting to watch Scandal for some time now, but always thought I would have no clue what was going on if I didn’t start with Season 1, so I finally started the other day while on the treadmill…so good! I’m excited to watch more!

What shows are on your watch-list for this Fall?

Save Big on Back to School with Groupon Coupons

School just started back up down here in the South and I know other parts of the country are gearing up to head back any day now. While my kids don’t go to school yet, that doesn’t mean I can’t take advantage of amazing back to school deals. Even better is that since my kids aren’t in school, there’s no rush to buy stuff, so I can sit back and wait for all the overstock to go on clearance! Then I swoop in and grab it up super cheap. This is a great way to get clothes in sizes your kids will need in the future too.

Not only can you find great deals in the stores, but online stores often have even more clearance options! Plus, sometimes I don’t get time to shop until after the kids are in bed and I can “window-shop” online.

When I’m ready to checkout, before I hit that Buy Now button, I ALWAYS do a quick search to see if I can find a promo code for the store I’m shopping at. I have saved so much just by doing that. And now, I can add Groupon Coupons to my list of sites to visit to find coupons/promo codes for when I’m shopping online.

Groupon recently partnered with 8,500 national retailers to offer Groupon Coupons. Unlike the original Groupon itself, you don’t have to register or purchase anything upfront. It’s a collected and curated group of 55,000 (!!) coupons and promo codes from top stores like Macy’s, Office Depot, and Sephora. You don’t have to create an account or give any info in order to use a coupon.

Online_Coupons__Thousands_of_Promo_Codes___Printable_Coupons___Groupon

 

I really like how they show you how recently a coupon was used and if it was successful, because coupons expire all the time or only apply to certain types of transactions, so I like knowing all of that info before getting my hopes up. Some are even available to print and use in the store, should you decide to shop local to you.

Online_Coupons__Thousands_of_Promo_Codes___Printable_Coupons___Groupon 2

 

They also show current sales going on for that retailer. I’m not sure how I feel about this because I mostly want to just see the coupons and not clutter up my screen, but some may find it useful to learn about sales if they weren’t already aware.

It’s really simple…just search for your favorite retailer…

Banners_and_Alerts_and_Online_Coupons__Thousands_of_Promo_Codes___Printable_Coupons___Groupon

 

then look through the available coupons for one you want to use…

Kohls_Coupons___Promo_Codes_2015_-_Groupon

 

then click “Get Coupon Code”

Kohls_Coupon__Extra_20__Off_Select_Juniors____Kids__Clearance___Groupon 2

 

The code will appear in a pop-up where you can copy it and then click Shop Now to go to the Store’s website…

Kohls_Coupon__Extra_20__Off_Select_Juniors____Kids__Clearance___Groupon

 

or copy the code to put in your cart (if you already have it on another tab).

Shopping_Bag_-_Kohls_com

 

I found a code for an extra 20% off Kids and Juniors Clearance items at Kohl’s – This was a great way to save extra on already discounted items. I just clicked Shop Now and it brought me right to the Clearance section on the Kohl’s website. As I added items, I could already see the discount code was applied and how much I was saving!

Be sure to check out Groupon Coupons the next time you’re shopping online…which for me, is probably right now!

Aubrey: 1 Year!! (and 10 & 11 months too)

Look who’s 1!

5Q2A7993

5Q2A8150

So I know I have failed at posting about Aubrey as much as I did with Trent, but gosh, life sure is 100 times busier now than back then! We take just as many photos, but the real life versions with toys all over the place and a brother running around half-naked in the background is hardly anything I want to share online. I don’t even put those on my personal Facebook lol

So before I get into the 1 year photos, here are her 10 and 11 month photos that I haven’t shared yet.

5Q2A5941 5Q2A5906 5Q2A8141 5Q2A8128 5Q2A8134

She just looks to grown in those chair photos! We may have been off a little on our timing of the photos, but we made sure to catch up by the last one.

But life sure is interesting with 2 kids. As Aubrey learns more and more, she is able to hold her own against Trent. The bad part is that she is quick to let us all know when he is irritating her. Sometimes, if he just steps into her little bubble, she will scream and grunt. Other times, he can kiss and hug her and carry her and she is laughing up a storm. She is already such a feisty little girl.

5Q2A7977

She is walking, she just gets a little wobbly sometimes, but has learned to squat down to balance instead of falling. It won’t be long before they are chasing each other. If I think the house is loud now, I better start taking Excedrine to prepare.

She is such a good little eater – much different than Trent! Her favorite food is eggs and she has 8 teeth.

5Q2A7974

Her favorite toy is the Fisher-Price xylophone and she has already started claiming one of Trent’s many stuffed sheep for when she sleeps. Why do our kids pick the WHITE animals that will get dirty so fast? However, a dear friend gave her a grey stuffed bunny that is super soft and she immediately went crazy for it, so we’ll start giving her that from now on.

Her birthday party was this weekend – a pink elephant theme! We made our invitations at home with a combination of Photoshop + HP Photo Cards with matching envelopes + Stickers made from my Silhouette Cameo. So inexpensive and I just love how they turned out!

Aubrey invite

 

Earlier in the week, we had a cake smash photo session, and while she didn’t go as crazy as Trent, she didn’t hesitate to dig in! Enjoy!

5Q2A8023 5Q2A8028 5Q2A8045 5Q2A8034 5Q2A8048 5Q2A8090 5Q2A8102 5Q2A8105

 

Stay tuned for photos from her party!

Happy birthday my sweet girl! :)

 

Just What Your Hair Needs: Pantene at Walmart

I definitely have a love/hate relationship with my hair. I love the look of long hair and the ability to do many different styles with it, but if I’m being completely honest, I am too lazy to deal with long hair. So I cut it. And I love it for a few days, and then I want my long hair back, then once it’s long, it’s annoying. But based on what I see on my Facebook and Instagram timelines, pretty much 90% of my friends have the same “problem” – are us girls ever happy?!

My stylist says I have a lot of hair, but that it’s thin. So while I feel like I have this enormous head of hair to deal with, it doesn’t always look like it because it falls flat. Some other things I have to take into consideration are how often I style it (blow dry, flat-iron, etc), how often I’m in the pool or go to the beach, and anything else that affects my hair. I’ll often choose a light moisturizing shampoo and conditioner…something to hydrate my hair after it takes a beating, but not too heavy to weigh it down.

This is why I like when a line of products has plenty of options for me to choose from. Everybody has different hair/skin/likes/dislikes/activities/etc. so why offer a one-size-fits-all product? This is where Pantene has you covered.

Pantene #WantThatHair 1

 

Everyone knows Pantene. Pantene does hair…all types of hair. Seriously, I sent Brett to pick up some Pantene shampoo and conditioner for me during his last trip to Walmart and he had to call me and ask “Which one? They have so many varieties!” I am actually very proud of him for calling to ask instead of having the typical male response of thinking they are all the same and just picking up whatever. Good husband!

Considering my hair type and what I needed, I went with the Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner.

Pantene #WantThatHair 2

 

Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner:

Erases the damage of 100 blow-dries for silky hair (Visible signs of surface damage; With use of Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner System vs. non-conditioning shampoo.)

Pro-V formula locks in moisture, leaving your hair soft, manageable, and strong against damage.

Clinically Proven Healthier Hair with Every Wash (Shampoo and conditioner system vs. non-conditioning shampoo)

Pantene #WantThatHair 3

USAGE:

WHO: All hair types that are dry, parched, or thirsty for moisture. Even for color-treated or permed hair!

WHEN: Daily to nourish hair and keep it feeling moisturized all day

HOW: Lather into wet hair; rinse; repeat if you want to.  Follow with Daily Moisture Renewal Conditioner to lock in moisture. Follow with Silky Moisture Whip for ultimate moisture and shine.

5Q2A7577

Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal shampoo lathered up really well, so I didn’t need to use a lot. The Conditioner was fairly thick and stayed put on while I let it sit for about a minute. I used both Pantene shampoo and conditioner, because they work together to make hair 2x stronger than shampoo alone. In the past, I have also combined different lines of Pantene shampoo and conditioner to gain even more benefits :)

Although I didn’t purchase it this time, Pantene offers pump bottles of their shampoo and conditioner, which I find much more convenient!

Pantene #WantThatHair 4

And for bonus convenience, Pantene also offers hair styling products to pair perfectly with their shampoo and conditioner. However, I chose to match my need for some volume with their Volume Up! Hairspray.

5Q2A7583

 

I just use hairspray to set my flat-ironed style, keep away frizzies, and protect against humidity (so bad in Florida!) . It provided all that without creating crunchy hair!

Now I’m all set to go!

5Q2A7586

 

You can find Pantene products for everyday low prices at your local Walmart or Walmart.com! Pantene at Walmart even has a 2x money back guarantee.
