GoodNites*Tru-Fit* - Bed Wetting Solution

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for GoodNites®*Tru-Fit*.  I received a promotion item to thank me for participating.  #WalmartTRUFIT #IC #sponsored

Bed wetting is far more common that one might think AND it cannot be helped or or trained away.  Research estimates that at least 1 out of every 6 children suffer from wetting the bed at night.  It can cause a great deal of anxiety for both the child as well as the parent.  I know this from my own experience with my own child.  At first I thought that this was something that could be trained away, that was until I did more research and discovered the facts.

Two of my children had no issues with bed wetting at all but our youngest is dealing with this problem that he cannot help.  We tried out many different bed wetting products and none seemed to work out or perform the way I wished they would.  I finally came upon GoodNites® disposable nighttime underwear.  We used the disposable undies for a while and those work so well.  Now that our son is almost 5 and completely daytime potty trained we want him to feel more confident and keep wearing the cloth underwear at night too.  I recently found out about the GoodNites®*Tru-Fit* Starter Pack which are machine washable underwear that have absorbent inserts now at select national retailers including Walmart.  They are available for both boys and girls in size S/M and L/XL in many different colors and patterns.


GoodNites®*Tru-Fit* are real underwear with disposable inserts that work incredibly well.  They look just like any other undies so nobody will be the wiser!  In stores you will find these as a 2-pack of underwear with a 5-pack of inserts.  GoodNites®*Tru-Fit* Insert Refill packs are easy to buy and come with 18 absorbent GoodNites®*Tru-Fit* Disposable Inserts each.  87% of moms that have tried the product say they will help make their child feel more confident.  You can download a $2 off coupon for GoodNites®*Tru-Fit* at http://www.goodnites.com/our-products/goodnites-trufit/

The fresh smell of spring is floating in the air.  It's time to gear up my son's wardrobe for spring and it's almost time to ditch the winter coat and boots!  We are ready to swing into lighter fabrics and brighter colors and have been daydreaming of it for months.  There are tons of great outfits to play around in this spring from Carter's.  I just scored a great deal on tons of adorable clothing for my four year old.  I ordered online simply to save a bit of time, it was so easy.  I went with the Doorbuster Deals at Carter's, everything is $8 for one or when you buy more they are $6 each!  Now I have several outfits and everything can mix and match for a ton of playtime wear this spring.  The sale ends March 25th!

A coupon for Carter's is available to print for 25% off and it expires March 25th, 2015.  Just use the clickable image below to save!  If this one is expired when you get to my post then definitely search the web, chances are there is a new one.


I plan to go into the store very soon and buy a hooded sweatshirt for the chillier days, didn't think of that when I was ordering.  My kids spend most of their playtime outdoors and I did too as a child, such great memories there.  I'm so happy with Carter's and their durable quality.  We are so ready for the long days ahead of playing outside in the fresh air and sunshine.

Easter is also coming up and I still have to find Easter outfits for my kids.  Every year I try to dress them all up really cute for church, egg hunts, pictures, and family gatherings.  I'm sitting here right now checking out the Carter's Easter shop while I write this post, so many cute dressy styles to choose from for both boys and girls with coordinating accessories to boot!

Once we are more settled into spring I plan to start shopping for summertime wear.  We need al new swimwear for sure as everyone has grown so much since last summer.  Carter's has a wonderful swimwear shop filled with everything we could need from towels to sunglasses and flipflops (up to size 12).  I really adore the cute coordinating pieces and the fact that they have UPF 50+ (especially the hats and swimwear).

I follow Carter's on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.  It's nice to stay up to date on the deals!  I hope you will join me.

Simple Tips for a Perfect Easter Dinner

I am working with HoneyBaked Ham and have received free product and compensation for writing this post.  All opinions are my own and honest.


Easter comes early this year, April 5th!  I went shopping for our Easter dinner at my local HoneyBaked Ham store here in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Serving up ham and turkey is an Easter tradition that everyone looks forward to each year.  I first looked at the HoneyBaked   menu and pricing online and then called in my order to be extra certain all the items we wanted would be available.  The staff is always super friendly and helpful, they set aside the items I needed so that my Easter dinner would be perfect.  My biggest tip for a flawless Easter dinner is to plan ahead, saves me every time.  I want to make memories with my family and not have to worry about the meal details. I like HoneyBaked so much, their products are premium, easy to serve and super yummy!

Our Easter dinner turned out beautifully and with such little effort.  I even saved five bucks off my bill by using a HoneyBaked printable coupon found here. (Offer valid 3.14.15 – 4.4.15. Must present coupon at time of purchase to receive offer. May not be combined with any other offer. One coupon per person at participating retail store locations. While supplies last.)

The table does not have to be super elaborate or look like it was designed by Martha Stewart herself.  First thing to do is pick out a really great table cloth that you love.  I always choose cloth and I recommend looking in the clearance areas because you never know, you may find an expensive table cloth for just a few bucks like I did!

Next step for the perfect table is finding a simple centerpiece.  I used some items that were already around at home, no need to rush out and spend tons of money on anything.  A couple candles added to the mix and my simple table setting was just right for our Easter family dinner.  All of the serving platters and dishes are vintage/antique finds from thrift stores or family inheritances.  The plates I like to keep simple.  If ever in doubt white tableware is the best way to go and with minimal embellishment.  If you want to make it look a little fancier then perhaps some simple place-mats would be a good idea along with cloth napkins.

Check out below for some beautiful pictures of our Easter feast!  (note: side dishes and desserts may vary by HoneyBaked location)

Disney On Ice Passport to Adventure Recap

I received something of value from Feld Entertainment as part of their Insider Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.



Over the weekend I took my whole family of five to see Disney On Ice Passport to Aventure at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  I kept it a surprise from the kids the night we went which made it even more exciting.  We had just finished up with our parent-teacher conferences and I was happy to find out they have been excelling at their school work!  The Disney One Ice show was a great reward for all their hard work.


Our favorite star of the night was Tinkerbell.  She was gliding across the ice with her wand, looking all magical and beautiful.  The Peter Pan scene was what really held my children's attention.  Wendy and her siblings actually fly over the ice with Peter Pan!  It was so cool and really well done.  Just a few of the magical moments I captured on camera are below, the show was really packed with tons of characters which included Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Lilo & Stitch, Peter Pan, and so many more.


I hope that you will take part in the Disney On Ice experience with your family sometime too!

My New Years Goals for Immune Support*

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All thoughts and opinions are mine alone and should not be construed as medical advice. #ad #24HourEsterC #CollectiveBias


It's the New Year woo-hoo!  I cannot believe we are finally in two thousand and fifteen!  Can you believe it?  For me the New Year means a blank page to begin anew.  I like to set goals for myself with each New Year and I usually find myself accomplishing them as long as I don't make the list too long.  Some of my goals include cooking with more vegetables, joining a gym (just did that!), organizing my basement (yikes!), making sure my immune system* remains supported by paying more attention to what goes into me, and spending more time with my children doing things they love. Hey I've already lost 75 pounds and for 2015 I'd love to lose 40 more, I so can do it if I put my mind to it!

So let's talk about my New Year goals for immune support and more.  I went to Walmart and browsed their health & beauty aisles to find a vitamin C supplement right smack dab in the middle of the vitamins shelves.  Ester-C is currently on rollback at Walmart!  I ended up buying two bottles of Ester-C 24 hour immune support*.  One bottle was the 500 mg for myself and the other was the 1000 mg maximum strength for my husband.  I also grabbed a daily pill container that has the days of the week in a cute color.  I figured since I am so forgetful it might help to have a better way to keep track of my supplements that I take.  I already take a daily hair, skin, and nail chewable and I know I've forgotten those a few times.  I'm pretty sure this will help a lot.

Step 1: Immune Support/Proactive Maintenance
I will be placing all my daily supplements including my Ester-C 24 Hour Immune Support capsules into my little day of the week organizer.  This will keep me on track and help me from missing my daily dose.  I will keep my pill holder right by the coffee machine because I never miss a cup of Joe in the morning.  I read that Ester-C is C-Sorb enhanced so it works with my white blood cells for up to 24 hours and keeps working long after a regular vitamin C supplement.  I have been comforted to find that Ester-C is non-acidic and very gentle on my stomach.


Step 2: Eating Better & Exercising
I'll be eating a colorful lunch filled with fresh fruits, vegetables, lots of water and some protein on the side.  After lunch a brisk walk or trip to the gym for at least 30 minutes minimum.  If I cannot make it to the gym or outside to walk then I will try to do stretches and some exercise inside of the house.


Step 3 : De-stress
I am using a few drops of pure lavender oil with an unscented lotion that I've put into an old jar.  If you try this be sure and check if you are sensitive to the oil before using and don't put more than 2% oil versus lotion mixed.  I start by rubbing that lotion on a few pressure points every evening before bed.  I love the relaxing effect.

Pretty simple right?  I think so!  I like keeping things simple especially when it comes to supporting my health.  If it gets too complicated I won't follow through and I know that.  I'm sure many of you are just like me as well.  I am so excited for 2015 and what it is going to bring my way.  Many blessings in this new year to you all!

I'll be following the Ester-C Facebook page and Ester-C Twitter account, I hope you will join me!
