A Young Explorer’s Big Boy Outer Space Bedroom @RaymourFlanigan #RFBloggers

We recently embarked on a mission to create a bedroom for a creative and curious young boy that is inspiring, comfortable, and fun. I want to encourage my children to reach for any dreams they have, no limits, even beyond the stars, and I envisioned the bed of a future astronaut…it would be one where […]

    I love that trunk. It’d be perfect storage for anything!ReplyCancel

  • Crystal

    You selected beautiful pieces. I tried to select furniture that would grow with my children, as you’ve done.ReplyCancel

  • Tammy

    I love the look of that dark wood. The decals on the wall are so cute, much better than wallpaper since they are easier to take down later!ReplyCancel

  • HilLesha

Bring Your Coloring To Life With Augmented Reality from @Crayola #ColorAlive

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Crayola. All opinions are 100% mine. Remember back when virtual reality seemed like light years away, but we dreamed about how cool it would be to realize such a futuristic achievement? We just wanted the option of being part of that sort of holographic, […]

    We are a huge Crayola family… I even have one whole closet filled with Crayola craft and art supplies. Love this idea! I know both my older kids would love to give this a try and my daughter would flip to create her own VR fairy. Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

  • Donna

    How amazing is that?!?! My son is older, but I think he would like this, besides… you’re never too old to enjoy coloring. :)ReplyCancel

    That is so cool! It’s amazing what you can do nowadays. (Did that just make me sound old?)ReplyCancel

  • OMGosh that is really cool! I still love to color and always wished my colorings came alive like that when I was a kid! :)ReplyCancel

  • Tammy Litke

    Oh how I wish they would have had things like this when my daughter was young. I have to look for these at the store so I can grab some for my nephew’s Easter Baskets.ReplyCancel

Create Your Own Destiny, Inspired By @Netflix #StreamTeam

An inspiring movie can cause a movement, and I’ve fallen under the spell of a wonderfully sadfdasf film myself many times. As the years pass, I find myself more motivated to sort of grab life by the horns and create my own destiny, and if you are anything like me, a good movie can get […]

    I’ve seen Clueless several times and you’re right; it’s great! I’ll have to watch the other two now as well, especially since there are laughs involved.ReplyCancel

  • Clueless has always been one of my favorite 80’s movie indulgences, and yes, I like that it shows the main character being a “go-getter” even though she has every material thing she could ever want. I also liked the movie “Working Girl” for its themes about going after your dreams.ReplyCancel

Join The #V8Protein Twitter Party + Find Out How Easy It Is To Enjoy Protein Anytime

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of V8 Protein. All opinions are 100% mine. I always loved V8 vegetable drinks as a source of my daily veggies, because enjoying them on the go all those years I was in school or working just made it easier for me to get important […]

  • Annie

    My family does not get anywhere near enough fruits and veggies. I’ve got to try this!ReplyCancel

  • Matea

    This is very convenient for all of us struggling against time :). I have always loved protein bars and often ate it while in school and on job as well.ReplyCancel

  • Crystal

    My husband has always been a big fan of V8, but I assumed I wouldn’t like it. I was so wrong! I can’t wait to try the protein bars.ReplyCancel

  • Kait

    I love these bars! Especially when I’m starving mid day and I want to turn to chocolate.ReplyCancel

  • Tammy

    Oh I think the V-8 Fusion products are the best, so I would probably really like these. These would be great snacks to fuel one after a workout.ReplyCancel

  • Jenn

    I’m all for ways to get extra protein in, especially when it’s tasty. These sound good.ReplyCancel

  • Donna

    Oh, I love V8 but didn’t know they had protein bars and shakes! That’s good to know! I hope I can make it, but I may be out of pocket that day.ReplyCancel

  • Ty

    OMGosh! I’m definitely going to have to look for these the next time I’m out shopping. And, I’ll definitely try to make it to the party, even if I’m a little late.ReplyCancel

  • Andrea Kruse

    I haven’t found these yet, but I do like the original V8 juice… and now the vegetable blends as well. Will have to find these to try.ReplyCancel

  • Vana

    My doctor said I need to get more protein in my diet so this may be a good option.ReplyCancel

  • Raijean

    I’ve yet to try this one, I’m going to check it out. And I’ll join the party.ReplyCancel

  • HilLesha

    I haven’t tried the new products before, but I’ll definitely have to give them a try sometime!ReplyCancel

  • Terry

    Wow, I never would have paired V8 with flavors like these. Seems like a great addition to anyone’s diet. Can’t wait for the Twitter Party!ReplyCancel

  • Andrea Kruse

    I am excited about the twitter party and was actually able to find these in store! They are even better than I imagined and so handy for a busy day.ReplyCancel

  • I’m a type 2 diabetic, and have recently recognized that protein deficiency makes my glucose levels tougher to maintain. I’ve tried to incorporate more protein throughout the day.

    I’d love to try these options!ReplyCancel

  • Donna

    Well dang it… I came back to see when the party was because I forgot to put it in my calendar and see I missed it. Sigh.ReplyCancel

  • Liz Mays

    I’m so excited to try the snack bars. I haven’t seen them yet, but I’m going to look tomorrow at the store.ReplyCancel
