Let Your Toddler Express Themselves {And Create Some Mother's Day Gifts in The Process!}

*Mommys Craft Obsession did not receive any compensation for the brands mentioned in this post*

Being at home 24/7 with a toddler is truly a blessing, although some days it feels like can feel like being in a cage with a small rabid animal. Okay maybe not rabid, but man do these little ones have energy! Little Mister and I love spending our mornings being lazy together, eating breakfast and watching a Mickey Mouse or two before mommy's game show (the Price is Right, yes I am an old lady in training) comes on. Obviously every day isn't spent lounging around, but on the days that we do have nothing planned I really strive to give Little Mister some creative stimulation to help with his development whether it's working with him on with homemade flash cards, working with him on colors, counting various objects, or our newest favorite venture, expressing ourself through painting!

Lil Gadgets Review and Giveaway!

*I received product from Lil Gadget's for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinion*  

Lil Gadgets believe that products for children shouldn't mean lesser quality or embellished with cartoonishness.  When they had a hard time finding products that met their standards for their children, they decided to make their own!  Lil Gadgets are built to be attractive enough for adults yet are durable and fitted for children.  These products will make your inner child envious!

Spring Fever {Your Resource For All Things Spring}

Spring is in the air and if you're anything like me, you're gearing up for warm weather, spring cleaning your house, and starting to wash your summer clothes. 

Many of you may not know this, but I am the co-owner of a wonderful little blogging community called Blog Mama Blog. Our community recognizes that many blogs have lost their true "roots" and have gotten buried in the hustle and bustle of reviews and giveaways, which is fantastic because it gives YOU a chance to win some great prizes, but what about the other stuff? The recipes, the craft projects, the advice? 

We're bringing it back baby, and we're kicking it off with Spring Fever!

3 Ingredient Homemade Weed Killer Recipe

In my opinion, one of the worst household chores (by far) is dealing with weeds. Living in Arizona it seems that our weeds can go from nonexistent to out of control in a span of 24 hours, especially during the monsoon season. After we bought our house we quickly learned that for whatever reason, we have "monster weeds" as I call them because traditional store bought weed killers such as Round Up, don't seem to affect them. At all. Seriously!

One afternoon I came home and saw my neighbors outside spraying their weeds with a mixture that looked green. Once I got out of my car I was overtaken with the smell of vinegar and I knew I had to go ask what they were up to. Within minutes I had the recipe to liquid gold; a 3 ingredient weed killer that actually worked.

Top 20 Wedding Registry Essentials

*I have not been compensated for any mention of brands in this post. This post has been created purely for personal purposes*

As many of you lovely readers already know, Mr. Hunky and I tied the knot a couple weeks ago on April 5 (2014). I guess that makes me Mrs. Hunky now huh?! Weird.

Throughout my days dutifully accepting the title of bride (also known as the woman you must agree with throughout the entire planning process or else risk your throat being ripped out by bridezilla.... whoa, to harsh? I promise I wasn't that bad!) I learned a thing or two about my wedding registry after spending hours upon hours doing what I though was perfecting it. Now that the wedding is over I see the truth - you never really know what you want/need until after your bridal shower and wedding.

So I've been keeping a secret....

....there's more to my reason of neglecting the blog than just the wedding....

Get Ready to Party!

Before you virtually smack me, know that the blog hasn't been updated because I FINALLY tied the knot last Saturday April 5th! It was an absolutely amazing and crazy busy week but the end result was so worth it when we were pronounced husband and wife and had our first married kiss.

Now that the wedding planning is over and the big day has come and gone, I am ready to buckle down and retransform this blog into what it use to be - packed full of fun DIYs, Crafts, Recipes, Reviews, & Giveaways.
