A Step Above the Rest - Kolcraft MLB Step Stool Review

I am sure all of you huge baseball fans that read my Kolcraft MLB Stroller Review have already run out and got one to show of your favorite team!  Well I have great news Kolcraft is now offering some other fun MLB Products.  Such as the MLB Potty Seats & MLB Step Stools!

We got our MLB Boston Red Sox Step Stool last week & despite how much daddy & brother love the Red Sox my daughter was a little hesitant.  She has her Dora the Explorer Step Stool but I assured her we could try this one out for a day or two & then get Dora back out. 

The winner was the MLB Step Stool!  No matter how much my daugher loves Dora this one is just so much more functional (plus Daddy & Brother telling her how cool it was might have helped a little bit.)  The major factor that made this step stool a definite keeper was the fact it has two steps.  Our sink is rather tall & normal step stools make my daughter barely reach with much to be desired.  Kolcraft has solved that problem & put their MLB Step Stools a step above the rest!  I love it because now when she brushes her teeth there isn't tooth paste all over the edge of the sink, she loves it because she can reach so much better (and actually see in the mirror now), and Dad & Brother love it because it represents the best team in Baseball - The Boston Red Sox!

If you are looking for a step stool that will last forever which amazing quality, an extra step, and your favorite team displayed then the Kolcraft MLB Step Stools are most definitely the only way to go!

Step Stools are available in the for the following MLB Teams:
New York Yankees, Chicago Cubs, Texas Rangers,  Philadelphia Phillies, Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox, St. Louis Cardinals, & San Francisco Giants!

Do NOT Surrender Your Life Insurance Policy

With the struggles of the economy right now many people are allowing their life insurance policies to lapse or surrendering their policies.  This is a horrible option!  You have paid into your life insurance policy and there is no reason to surrender your policy and receive no benefit from it.

I love Dave Ramsey, I swear by the Dave Ramsey plan (or common sense plan as we sometimes call it at my house).  As such a firm believer in what Dave Ramsey teaches I absolutely recommend to any of you to have a life insurance policy and to keep this policy.  For quite a small fee you can know that should the unthinkable happen your family will still be taken care of.  I would hate to think about how I will make ends meet if something happened to my husband and vise versa & am very thankful we have invested in life insurance policies for our family (though not nearly as large as I would like them).  It definitely gives us peace of mind knowing that if something did happen (god forbid) that the other would still be able to pay the house payment, put the kids in piano lessons, etc.

However, although I highly recommend to always have a life insurance policy I know there are times when this may not be possible and someone may let their policy lapse or surrender the policy.  Many people do not know they can receive A Life Settlement for their policy.  A life settlement is a simple option where a broker will sell your policy to an investor or a company and you get paid!  If for some reason you cannot pay for your policy this should be something you definitely look in to.  Like I said I would highly recommend having a policy and keeping it but if your situation prevents this do not just surrender your policy & get nothing, definitely look into life insurance settlements & get something for all that money you have put in!

Mothers Day Gift Idea - Review & Coupon Codes

Mothers Day is right around the corner and I always start brainstorming early because I swear my parents have everything.  Plus, I have four mom's to buy for since my husband and I both come from split marriages and both dearly love our step-moms.  One of the hardest parts is mine lives in Texas, a 24 hour drive, so I ship the present and want it to be something she will truly enjoy.

I was excited when I found out I would be reviewing  They offer a Freshness Promise on every flower they deliver - they promise that they will be fresh for seven days after arrival or it will be replaced.  Not very often do flowers stay fresh for seven days so I decided to get some flowers to review.

As the days went on they just got even prettier.  By day 2 a few of the roses were in full bloom and the lilies were starting to open as well.  By day 4 everything had bloomed open & everything looked beautiful.  There were two roses that didn't even bloom until day 5 and the bouquet lasted over the 7 days promised (about 10 days).  I absolutely loved this bouquet because when I received it there were a lot of leaves and not much flower since none had bloomed.  It was fun to see these flowers get more beautiful everyday (plus Roses and Lilies are 2 of my favorite flowers). 

I am so excited to find a company I can trust to send my mom quality gifts!  Plus, this doesn't mean I always have to send flowers.  ProFlowers has an amazing selection of gift - in fact for Mothers Day I am checking out their Mothers Day Gift Baskets because there are tons of fun ones she would love and that means I can save the Flowers idea for her birthday which is only a few weeks later.

The Dirty Truth is Proflowers made my ordering process as easy as can be.  They e-mailed me an order confirmation & a delivery confirmation.  Between their high level of customer service and their great quality it is a company I will continue to recommend.  Plus, besides the fact they already offer great prices you can use any of their great coupon codes to score an even better deal!

TO BUY:  You can purchase these beautiful bouquets, gift baskets and more at
Don't forget to use the ProFlowers Coupon Codes which can save you a bundle!

SwimZip Spring Break Giveaway & Review

I was really excited when SwimZip - especially because my baby is pasty!  My older two both have a more olive complexion like me, but our youngest definitely took after daddy & I know we are going to have to take a lot of precautions with her in the sun!  I decided this was the perfect opportunity to try out these swimsuits on my 4 year old so when the baby gets a little older I will know if this is something I would want to purchase for her.

SwimZip offers super cute swimsuits for children up to size 4T with UPF 50+ Sun Protection.  This means that the fabric is excellent at blocking the sun's UVA & UVB rays (they block 99% of these rays).  Not only is this great to prevent sunburns but it can help dramatically reduce your child's risk of skin cancer later in life.  The fabric is made of a Lycra/Nylon blend which allows for quick drying and extremely soft swimwear.  Here is a great illustration that shows many of the benefits of the SmimZip Swimsuits.
