Going Framily with Sprint will SAVE you Money on your Cell Phone Bill: Win a HTC One Max Smartphone #SprintMom #MC

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Sprint. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating.

Guess what?!?!  I was picked as a #SprintMom Ambassador, SQUEEEEEALLL!!  Some of you might be asking yourself, what the heck does it mean to be a Sprint Ambassador?  Over the course of the next year, I will be testing various Sprint devices/service options and share my experiences with my readers!  And to kick things off, today I will be discussing Sprint's new Framily Plan AND giving away a HTC One Max Smartphone!

Have #TheHappys Be A Part of Your Child's After School Program: The Happy's World of Zhu

The post is a sponsored post as part of a promotional program with Cepia and MomSelect.  All opinions are my own.

My kids love stuffed animals, in fact my daughter has so many stuffed animals on her bed that she barely has room to fit herself!  My son has a nice collection of stuffed animals as well, but of course his has to be more on the "boyish" side.  So when I found out Cepia, makers of ZhuZhu pets, released a new line of plush motorized animals called The Happy's; I knew I had to get them for my kids!

They scamper...
They bounce...
They sit up...
They beg...

Give Yourself a Girl's Night Out Compliments of #PGBestForMe: Win a $70 P&G Gift Basket

This post is a sponsored post brought to you by SheSpeaks and P&G.

I do not get many "Adult Nights Out" since having kids, my idea of a night out usually includes kids, a Disney movie and the playground a Mickey D's.  And a night out pampering myself and getting all dressed up?  Those happen once in a blue moon!  But when it does happen, I take full advantage of it and really give myself the time and attention I deserve.  This is made so much easier with P&G products!

Easy Crockpot Chicken Fajita meat & Fajita Seasoning Mix Recipe

My family (myself included) are huge Mexican food fans!  I usually make some sort of Mexican dish once a week.  Chicken fajitas are my favorite but truthfully, I totally disliked cutting up the raw chicken to make it.  I will never make chicken fajitas any other way, ever again!  This crockpot recipe has saved my life, not only is it awesomely delicious but for the working mom like myself, it is SUPER easy!!

Easy Eggs in a Basket Recipe with Roman Meal: Roman Meal "Baked Fresh" Sweepstakes

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Roman Meal. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

When life hands me eggs and bread, I make "Eggs in a Basket"!  It is that time of year again, when all of us parents out there will be overloaded with Easter eggs.  What to do with this plethora of eggs?  Break out all of your "eggy" recipes of course and one of my favorites is this Skinny Deviled Eggs recipe.  Another top 5 favorite of mine is "Eggs in a Basket", or as some of you out there call it "Toad in the Hole".  Not only is Eggs in a Basket an easy and delicious morning meal but it is also ranks pretty good on the nutritional scale, especially when you are using Roman Meal bread.

Easy Tips for an Eco Friendly Home: Direct Energy Smart Thermostat

Many thanks to Direct Energy for sponsoring today's story and inspiring me to live a smarter and more eco-friendly lifestyle!

Since I've had kids, I have been much more aware of the harmful effects we are causing our environment and the waste we are leaving behind.  I want my children to grow up respecting our planet, basking in it's beauty and preserving it for all generations to come.  I know, I know it seems really hard (and expensive) to begin living a "greener" lifestyle but the truth is, it does not have to be.  You don't have to run out right this minute and buy an electric car or install solar panels on your home but you can begin with the small things.  It is a START and the small things can make a world of difference!  So, here are some easy things my family has started to do to begin living an eco friendly lifestyle.
