Meet Your Child's New Favorite Treat: TEDDY Soft Bakes! #MBPEGG17

Thank you to TEDDY for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions shared are my own.

What kinds of snacks do your kids like? My son has inherited his mom's sweet tooth, and at the moment, he's like a bottomless pit. When he gets home from school, he wants a snack... and then maybe one or two more until dinner is ready. He's a growing boy, and he's the tallest kid in his kindergarten class. I want to give him wholesome snacks that are made with real ingredients, and that he'll really enjoy.

Travel Tips [wanted]

HELP WANTED:
TRAVELING SOON WITH BABY!

My husband, daughter and I will be taking our first family of three vacation together in May of this year! Our little girl will be 8 months old when we go on our trip, so I know I will need to be prepared in all kinds of ways! Because, let's face it... she's super cute but girlfriend is needy! (And do I ever love being her mommy and providing for all those needs!!) 
Our Super Cute Girl

We have decided to travel to Washington DC for a couple of reasons.  First of all, it has been on our list for a while because my husband has not been since he was a child.  Secondly, I feel like it is a great place to travel with a baby because there are a lot of things to do for free! And if an afternoon goes south in a hurry due to a nap protesting 8-month old, we don't have to feel bad, or like we wasted any money on buying tickets to whatever we have planned!

The White House, Washington DC
So, not having ever traveled with a baby, we would love some advice! What are the must bring essentials to make baby and momma and daddy's trip enjoyable?

I know for certain I will have my breast pump, Tula baby carrier, stroller, and diapers.  We usually cloth diaper, however I think we will use disposables for our trip. 

Being able to wear Ruby in our Tula will be really convenient walking around DC!

Breast Pump = Must Take

As you can tell, by my extensive list of 4 items, I am super prepared for this upcoming adventure! This is why I am coming to Mommy's Block Party to ask for some guidance! Any help would be much appreciated! I would also love to hear about your favorite things to do in Washington DC!

Washington DC


So help a momma out in the comments below! 

I will write about our adventures and let you all know how it goes after our trip in May! Thanks for your help!

Renovation Revelations: Things To Be Aware of When Restoring a Property


Looking to achieve your dream home? Buying a cheap, run down property which has potential and then doing it up yourself is a good way to go about it. You can transform it into anything you want, and have a say over everything from the layout to the finishes. It’s far cheaper than buying a house that’s ‘move in ready’ so you’ll get more for your money. Or perhaps you’re looking to get in property, ‘flipping houses’ can be very lucrative, and done well can seriously line your pockets. However, renovating isn’t without its risks. Not only do you need to have patience and creative vision when working on transforming a home, but properties (especially older ones can) contain all kinds of hidden secrets. These issues than can put a dent in your budget or even cause you to lose money overall. Here are some of the common issues to watch out for when you’re renovating a property.

Extend the Life of Your Batteries with Batteroo #review



Do you feel like there is always something that needs new batteries?  I sure do.  I am so excited to learn about Batteroo and try them out in my house.  This could be a game changer for us! Batteroo is a battery booster.  Batteroo is a reusable sleeve for your disposable batteries.  It will extend the life of your battery.  It seems like the battery in the Xbox controls dies every other week, so I am super excited to see how long they last with the Batteroo sleeve on them.  I am also using Batteroo on all of our TV remotes.  I received a package of AA and AAA Batteroos.  They have been on my disposable batteries for a little over a week, so I will update you on the success of them.  However, I did read some other reviews on them and I hope I have the same success that I read about.
