Let’s Color Together at Gymboree Giveaway

“We’re going to do a craft!” I could hear the excitement in P’Diddy’s voice. Was it that long since we’ve done one? This has been a busy summer outdoors and I’m glad we were taking a bit of time to let our indoor imaginations play. Today we are teaming up with Gymboree to share why creativeness is needed for all in their Gymboree’s Let’s Color Together campaign.

1.7 million students are in need of arts & crafts supplies. That makes me so sad! Now through Sept.7th Gymboree is teaming up with DonorsChoose.org where they aim to fulfil at least one classroom in every county where there is a Gymboree location. Love that it is staying local!

We put together a Kiwi Crate I had and it was perfect because it was simple, cute and contained 2 wind powered cars for my boys to color and create. A little learning about wind energy is always a bonus!

The boys are sporting Gymboree’s Sports Legend Tee and Soccer Champ Tee. Perfect for my small teamsters.

Of course when they were done they had to test them with a race! Changing into the Long Sleeve Striped Tee and High Five Tee, they had to blow blow blow the sail. Ok just give it a little push. hee hee.

When I did my shopping last week for the items in these photos the saleswoman asked me at checkout if I’d like to donate for the Let’s Color Campaign and I said YES! Even $1 supplies a child with a pack of crayons for the year.

This sweet Let’s Color Together YouTube video might convince you as you watch an elementary school teacher and her class get surprised with some great crafts. Does your heart good.

Hello Pericoach Goodbye Leakers Annoymous

This is a sponsored post for the new pelvic floor muscle training device, the PericoachUS. 

I’ve chatted about this topic before and I think it’s a good one for all women. In my last chat I sloganed the problem ‘It’s a mom thing’ because after kids it is an issue many of us develop. Nearly one in three women will experience urinary incontinence at some point in their lives. You are not alone!

Sneezing, coughing and laughing are big triggers, but even lifting, jumping and running can be a pain too. Experts recommend pelvic floor muscle training, but at least 50% of women do not correctly contract their pelvic floor muscles with verbal or written instructions alone.

There is now a device that takes the guesswork out of ‘Kegels’! It’s called the Pericoach.

Pericoach

An easy-to-use, home personal trainer device and app to manage and monitor your pelvic floor exercises to help reduce or stop leaking. Right from your phone you can manage your bladder! How about that? Sensors on the Pericoach detect your contractions and then send an immediate report via Bluetooth. Practice makes perfect and now you can see your results and improvement!

The creators of Pericoach have made a super fun video titled Leakers Anonymous that was developed and produced by the creative team (Naama Bloom, Sara Saedi) behind the popular and ground-breaking HelloFlo videos (e.g., “Period Fairy,” “Camp Gyno”). The hilarious Leakers Anonymous is meant to take away the shame associated with the condition, ease the way into a conversation with a health care provider, and give women inspiration and a solution to reduce or eliminate the problem.

WARNING: This video will cause laughter. Leakers, prepare yourself before watching…hee hee

Strengthen and tone your way back to confidence with the ‘Kegel Exercise System’ the Pericoach!

Can’t wait to hear what you think!

TV Everywhere & $50 Visa Giveaway

Waiting waiting waiting. What do you do while you are waiting in the school car line? Waiting for the doctor who takes forever to come? Waiting for your table to be ready at our favorite restaurant? Or one I have coming up – waiting to get to your destination during a 12 hour drive.

TV Everywhere is a solution to the ease of waiting! You can watch your favorite TV shows while on the go on any device!

TV Everywhere

Who is your cable provider? Did you know that they have an app to put on your phone or tablet? Or even just watch right on your computer? I almost never watch shows when they first air, so this is a great way for me to catch up and even start to watching new series I’ve had on my wish list.

It’s funny that I’m chatting about TV Everywhere for me because my boys (Hubby too!) are the little TV watchers and this gives me an idea. My 5-year likes his kiddie shows, but his big brothers whine and complain when he puts them on. Now he can just add the app to his ipod and watch! And Hubby? I can see him glancing at sports scores on ESPN between patients. ha!
