Marvel fans, assemble! Marvel Universe LIVE!

We have a pre-holiday surprise for my almost 5 year old, she has a date night with her father to see Marvel Universe LIVE! in Cincinnati in December! She loves running around the house as “Superhero Kelsey” and has recently started to recognize the characters in the Marvel Universe. I think she is going to be thrilled to see this amazing live show that is getting rave reviews.

Pure Sleep Little Pillow and Back to Reality Giveaway Hop



My little one is not so little any more. She will be 2 next month. Where has the time gone? We haven’t set a time line for it yet but we will eventually take the side off her crib and convert it to a daybed, especially once she starts potty training.

2015_08_06_9999_9

She likes to climb up on her sisters bed and lay down on her pillow so I know having her own pillow will help her feel a little more like a big girl in her own bed. I was pleasantly surprised when this Organic Pure Sleep Little Pillow by Dreamtown Kids appeared on my doorstep. Every morning, I find my little one curled up with this pillow, it’s so comfortable.

I like that it is was designed neck position in mind so its chiropractor recommended. The 100% certified organic cotton fabric casing and fiber cluster fill is hypoallergenic, soft, and breathable and machine washable. It’s great for bed, daycare, while traveling, anywhere!

The Pure Sleep Little Pillow is made right here in the USA by Dreamtown Kids, a small family run business known for outstanding customer service. Looking for a custom amount of filling?

MommyCon 2015 Ticket Giveaway!

MommyCon 2015 Ticket Giveaway!

I told you guys a little about MommyCon when I became a MommyCon blogger. I have been counting down the months until it comes to Columbus, Ohio on September 19, 2015. It has been fun connecting with other moms in the Facebook groups and learning from the veterans about how to make the most of the day.

Here are a few tips I have picked up:

  • Get ready to geek out. MommyCon is very kid-friendly but don’t be afraid to leave the little ones at home and enjoy your Mom time.
  • Look for deals for the area now. People have been able to get great deals on everything from hotels to parking to things to do with the kids before and after the event by keeping an eye out over the past few months.
  • Bring snacks. Even though there is food for sale, the lines tend to be long. If you have little ones with you, have dietary restrictions, or are just impatient, it’s a good idea to pack your lunch, or at least snacks and drinks. Also, leave it in the car if you can.
  • Standing room only. If you are taking kids with you, your best bet for the day is to plan on using a baby carrier and wearing a backpack. It sounds like they try to have a stroller check if you need to use one to get to the event but it will be pretty full of people so plan to carry babies and leave space in the backpack for fun finds and session materials.

For information about the Washington D.C., Columbus, Newport Beach and Seattle events, visit MommyCon. If there is a location you are interested in, scroll to the bottom to find the link to the Facebook group for the event and get in touch with other attendees. Of course, you can also follow them on social media to keep up to date with what is going on (and there are giveaways every now and then). Then, get ready for VIP tickets to go on sale closer to the actual date.

The ladies at MommyCon have been so great to work with. I am thrilled to be able to offer you a chance to win two general admission tickets to any MommyCon city in 2015! Follow the link below to enter by August 3, 2015, 11:59pm. Winner will be notified by email and have 24 hours to claim their prize. Good luck!

If you don’t want to wait and take your chances, use the promo code DOMESTIC15 for $5 off your general admission ticket today (only good on general admission, not pre-sale or VIP). Military moms, check out the Military Ticketing Program.
