Welcome to the bumGenius 4.0 Giveaway, sponsored by Cotton Babies and hosted by Thrifty Nifty Mommy & Viva Veltoro!
Cloth diapers have come a LOOOOOONG way over the last few decades. Pins and prefolds are a thing of the past. If you don’t believe it, check out bumGenius 4.0 One-Size Cloth Diapers! bumGenius 4.0 is a reusable diaper that is just as easy to use as disposables (except it's way better for the environment — and your wallet).

One of the great things about bumGenius is that you have options. With exclusive colors and prints to the closures and absorbency, YOU can customize your diapers to meet your needs.
  • Durable snap closures help keep diapers on. This is quite helpful when it comes to little fingers figuring out how to take off a diaper!
  • Easily replaceable elastic keeps your diapers fresh and secure.
  • Waterproof insert stopper* prevents leaking at the tummy.
  • Diapers are bundled with two inserts: a newborn insert for smaller babies and a one-size insert for growing baby.
  • Wide slot opening makes it easy to stuff and remove insert.
  • Slot cover* protects your baby from wetness.


The bumGenius 4.0 is a one-size diaper, meaning it fits most babies from birth to potty training (7-35 lbs). It includes a 3×3 snap down setting so you can adjust it to a small, medium or large size.

Twinkles of Joy Baby Blanket in the Winter Wonderland Blog Hop *Review & Giveaway

Winter Wonderland Blog Hop
Is it a Winter Wonderland in your neck of the woods? Currently as I write this in KY, we are experiencing rain. Excited to see the white flakes come later this season.
We are gearing up for Winter with a great company Merdy and their Twinkles of Joy products. Keeping baby warm this winter season!


Blowing Bubbles  Baby Blanket for Girls was the darling blanket we received from Merdy! I got this a few weeks before Jurnee was born and couldn't wait to use it with her! It is probably the softest blanket me own! I use it nightly to cover her up and keep her warm.

I wasn't sure how Jurnee would do with the sound from the blanket. It is a bit louder than I thought a baby would like. She started fussing and her sister pushed the button, and believe it or not, Jurnee went back to sleep! She loved it. I know she will love the lights for sure once she is just a little bit older. She already is enthralled with ceiling lights so I now she will love it!

The blanket measures 34 by 44 with the ruffle. It is plenty big to use in a crib or playpen. Much bigger than a swaddle style blanket.
100% microfiber polyester material, and trimmed with a satin ruffle. One of our very favorite blankets! I imagine this one will be one of hers she carries around as well.

They are having a holiday sale on their blankets right now that you won't want to miss!

Baby Beehaven, the must have accessories for busy Moms!

Stroller rides just got a little more cushy with the Cush 'n Go from Baby Beehaven! This memory foam stroller cushion  is compatible with most stroller harness systems. It gives soft and stylish support for baby's head, neck and back. It is reversible so you can flip it over easily for a new look.

We haven't had the chance to purchase a new stroller yet, baby is just 2 weeks old and its cold outside. I wanted you to see both sides of the Cush 'n Go in Preslee Purple.

Gorgeous! Perfect for my little princess. The Cush 'n Go comes in 6 different color options (each having 2 sides). Some of those strollers can get pretty thin and uncomfortable for your little one. O think I need a memory foam like this for my car!
A feature I really like is that it is machine washable. Spills, germs, easy to wash away by pulling off the Cush 'n Go! Much easier than trying to clean the stroller.

Here is how the Cush 'n Go looks in the stroller (from their website)

This is just one of the innovative products that Baby Beehaven has! Be sure to check out Baby Beehaven on these social media sites!

Thinkfun Gravity Maze *Review #giftguide2014

Thinkfun has topped their Laser Maze puzzle with the new Gravity Maze! This great logic game utilizes gravity to help get the marble through the maze. Working with translucent, plastic tubes, the 60 challenges from beginner to expert keep the kids (and grown ups) engaged for hours! Geared for ages 8 to adult. I had my 15 year old sample the game for me to see how his skills were.
He caught on fairly quickly to the easy levels, but once he got to expert I could see his logic wheels turning! I would say you are fairly safe to get some good play out of this game with a 15 year old and younger.

It is a single player game. In our home that means one plays it and there is a line up for the next player!
I love logic games. I much rather the kids play games that are educational, or gives them skills they can utilize later. Logic is so important and this is a fun way to practice it!

The Gravity Maze fits so nicely back into the box, making it easy to store and get out again to play with. This would be a great travel game as well to challenge your family and friends.

Read my Laser Maze review HERE We still have a lot of fun with this game!

You can purchase Gravity Maze at Amazon, Target, Toys R Us, Barnes & Noble and your neighborhood toy store, MSRP: $29.99

Jesus Daily 365 Interactive Devotions *Review & Giveaway


Jesus Daily offers 365 daily devotions inspired by the Jesus Daily facebook page. Now captured in print for a year of devotion and refreshment.

I love utilizing daily devotion books, to have in a variety of strategic locations throughout the house. I use my Bible for first thing in the morning, but there are often times through out the day where I just need some more Jesus! Especially with a new baby, I am not as mobile to go searching for just the right word, or encouragement for the day. I love that this book is small and can just sit on the table right next to my chair in the living room, and I can easily turn to the date and read the excerpt. They aren't time consuming, yet are meaningful for encouragement.

Each devotion has a scripture verse written out, which I love that I don't have to look it up! Then there is a short devotion. After that is the interactive part of the book. The daily interaction has you connect what you have learned in a meaningful way. Some of these connections include, scanning blogs and websites you read and look for a need you can meet for the kingdom, offer to pray for someone online, make a list of the biggest milestones in your life and see how God has met you in each, and email and encourage someone who is struggling.
Putting hands and feet to God's word!

Purchase Jesus Daily at the following locations

With nursing it is important to find quality nursing tops that are functional, and classy. Milk Nursingwear has the 'freshest nursingwear on the planet"!

The Dolman nursing top is perfect for the upcoming holiday season. I chose black as a slimming color, though the gray would be great as well. Paired with a skirt, this will be my Christmas outfit this year. Classy and easy to feed the baby while we are out.

God Bless our Christmas Board Book *Review & Giveaway

Hannah C. Hall
Illustrated by Steve Whitlow

What a fantastic grouping of gorgeous winter animals! They are so soft and cuddly, sure to inspire even your smallest listener. Snow bunnies, leopards, whales, penguins and more proclaim the fun of the Christmas season.

 From decorating the tree, to making cookies and drinking hot cocoa, there are some real fun things to be had in the winter. Told in rhyme, this book has a great flow and sing song feel to it. I read it to my 1 week old, and look forward to her hearing it each year. Through all of the festivities, the animal families still proclaim the gift from God.. Jesus as the best gift of all.
I love how we can proclaim the best gift to even our youngest listeners this holiday season with great book from Tommy Nelson! They may be a little young to participate in all of the festivities, but never too young to hear that Jesus is the reason for the season.
Be sure to add this padded board book to your Christmas book collection!!

Love With Food Subscription Box *Review #giftguide2014 #Free Sample Box!!

Love With Food is the all natural snack subscription box that is fighting hunger in America!

When you subscribe, you receive a monthly box of healthy snacks, and Love With Food gives money to a local feed bank to provide food for those in need. Your gift this holiday season is multiplied!

Founder Aihui Ong started Love With Food ( as a means of expressing love to our close ones, while enabling people to discover healthy snacks easily. Love With Food snack boxes gives you three box options-Tasting, Deluxe and Gluten-Free. Each box is marked by a seasonal theme, determining the new, surprise organic or all-natural hard-to-find snacks delivered to your door each month. This month's theme was Baby, it's cold outside! Once you discover what you like, you can buy in bulk and stock up your pantry for school lunchboxes and work snacks. For every box sold, a meal is donated to a food bank in the U.S.  To date, Love With Food has generated funding for over 320,000 meals, and counting.

I received the deluxe box for review. The photo above is just half of what the box contained. These were great snacks! Sometimes natural subscription boxes contain some snacks my kids deem 'weird', but not in Love With Food, they enjoyed them all! I really loved how they included an information brochure on the collection we received, so we knew exactly what was in the subscription box and with what company. That way if the kids really enjoyed a particular snack we could look them up online and order in bulk.

There were 10 companies represented in this one subscription box! That is fantastic. Often we have reviewed subscription boxes where there are only a hand full of snacks to sample. I appreciated the size of this box very much. Some companies we were able to sample were Fruit Bliss, Jers Chocolates, Dick and Jane Education, Laiki Crackers.

One of my favorites was Fruit Bliss and their Dried Mini Figs!

The holidays are perfect time to begin spreading community spirit through the gift of food and with Love With Food’s subscription it will last throughout the year.  Instead of sending flowers or fruit or the same gift basket as last year, send something new and exciting.  For a very reasonable price of $10 per month for a Tasting Box, $17 per month for a Deluxe Box or $24.50 per month for a Gluten Free Box, not only will Love With Food send a sampling of healthy, rewarding snacks to a family member or friend or even yourself, this incredible gift subscription is a gift that keeps on giving. What better way to enjoy the holidays.

Be sure and let me know you are trying it and let me know your thoughts once you get your box. I just know you will love it!
