I was so excited to introduce my readers to My Muse Dolls last month with the giveaway I hosted, but now with 2 1/2 weeks left until Christmas I'm thrilled to share that they just announced an unprecedented holiday sale:

Hosting the Holidays with Micro Cotton Towels

Disclosure: I received samples to facilitate this review; all opinions expressed are my own. 



In two short days our new home is going to be full with nearly 10 overnight guests as we prepare for our housewarming party this weekend and one of the things I've been trying to make sure we have are enough air beds, linen and towels for everyone. The last time we hosted a big crowd was when we had our first Thanksgiving in Portsmouth - fun times, remember?


$100 Holiday Giveaway from WaterWipes

When I was pregnant with Grayson I remember how people annoyingly loved sharing their thoughts on the differences between having boys and girls with me. One of the biggest differences was concerning the reported difficulty potty training boys. As a result, I kind of dreaded what was to come with potty training Grayson especially after Nia's experience being so easy. Well in the past year we've come a long way (remember how he was removing his diaper last December?) and now we're at the point that when we're home he prefers to be diaper-free and has woken up dry from a nap. I know we're in the home stretch of potty training, but that doesn't mean we don't have accidents though - and they doesn't always come in the form of potty training challenges!

Our Family Date Night with the Boston Celtics

Disclosure: My family received a complimentary Boston Celtics Family Pack; all opinions expressed are my own. 



One of the things I keep telling myself since we moved back to Boston is that I need to pace myself: there is so much to do here and living in Boston as a single 20-something vs. now in my 30s married with two kids really makes me see the city in a different light. When my family was invited to attend this past Friday's Boston Celtics game for the first time together it made me realize it was just shy of 10 years since I had been to one - the last time was when Mr. Lovebird and I were dating. Suddenly I felt old!

Tis the Season for Swimming with Frogglez

Disclosure: I received a sample to facilitate this review; all opinions expressed are my own.



Growing up I remember hearing the term, "soccer mom" and often wondered if I'd end up being one. I played soccer for only one season as a kid and my own mom was more of a "track and field mom" given the unfair amazing talent of my younger siblings, two of whom went to college on athletic scholarships. There's one sport that both my kids have been doing a solid 2 years now and I'm realizing my position is finally being solidified: I'm a swim mom.

Safer Laundry with Molly's Suds #WiseChoice

Disclosure: I was provided samples to facilitate this review; all opinions expressed are my own.



I've moved about 10x in the past 10 years and from the dreaded, dark communal laundry room in my Queens' apartment complex's basement to the awesomeness of wash and fold in Jersey City, I've experienced so many different set-ups. In our new home in Boston I finally have the arrangement I've always wanted: two floors of living space with an actual laundry room on the second floor. With built-in cabinets, hanging rack and wire shelving up high I like that I can close the door if needed and not worry about the laundry monster that often gets out of control in our household.

My Best DIY Advent Calendar Yet


We still have quite a bit of boxes over here since we moved in September and in a flash of panic yesterday it dawned on me that I need to dig through them to find the Advent calendar I made for Nia last year inspired by This Little Street's feature I saw on The Holiday Collective's Instagram account. I remembered I posted this teaser and realized I never shared the tutorial so here we go!
