It was your comfort, your constant companion? My kids both still have blankets that come out of bed with them in the morning and goes back to bed with them each night. And I’m not ashamed to say it, my husband and I have blankets also. Ours only leave the bedroom to come out on the couch with us, during winter evenings, otherwise they are firmly stationed on our respective sides of the beds. Each of these blankets was lovingly made by hand by my husband’s grandmother and they are our most prized possessions. In this day and age of “busy,” these blankets help us to slow down and create family Snuggle® up moments.
This post was sponsored by Nintendo as part of an Influencer-Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.I have two boys. Two boys who love video games. Who try to talk to me about video games, like Yo-Kai Watch. I feel so bad for them since I know I usually have a pretty blank look on my face as I’m listening, thinking, “What is Yo-Kai Watch and why is it taking so long to get to the point!” I have never been a “gamer” and probably am not going to turn in to one now. But I do like to know what kinds of stuff the kids are interested in. I always try to give them at least 5 minutes, of my full attention, so they can explain what’s going on in their video games. These discussions would go on MUCH longer if I let them. Why do kids love the details so much?!
One day on Facebook, I was able to explain to another mom what her son was talking about because I had just learned about it from my kids. And then I knew what I had to do. I need to help other moms. So I decided to take one for the team and have my oldest son explain to me exactly what Yo-Kai Watch is. I did this so that you don’t have to worry about hurting your own kid’s feelings as your eyes start to glaze over. You’re welcome.

On an unexpected rainy day this summer, my family and I got into a car accident. We were headed to meet up with extended family for a week-long vacation. We were all fine, but really shaken up. We made it on to our vacation and had a mostly enjoyable time (after renting a car to complete the 6 hour drive and dealing with adjusters between fishing trips). But I never expected to have this incident leave me in a state of panic about natural disasters. What I am finding amongst my mom friends is that I am not the only one concerned about natural disaster preparedness. I found a great resource that I want to share with you so we can all make it a priority to get our emergency plans together. And it isn’t as hard as I thought it would be.
May I be frank for a minute? The idea of family game nights make me want to slit my wrists with the dagger from Clue. It’s not that I don’t like my family. It has everything to do with the fact that I don’t love playing games. It’s a jerk mom move to not have family game nights with your kids. But let’s face it, sometimes kids are hard. They like to make up their own rules and the last thing I want to do during a fun family night activity is have to be bad cop and enforce rules. I am SO grateful for Netflix family programming becoming a priority of the service this year. As a lifelong TV lover, that’s something I can totally get behind. It’s the perfect family night idea. All you need is Netflix, a few snacks and your loved ones.
Luckily, here in California, rain boots are not totally a necessity. Which means, that you tend to put a little bit of thought in to how they look when you’re buying a pair. With only a handful of days out of the year where it is actually raining, you tend to wear your rain boots for things other than rain. Which means, they need to be stylish and practical. Today I’m sharing how Western Chief rain boots have your feet covered and in style.
