What Do Batman and Scooby Have in Common? {Giveaway}

Their own YouTube channels!

With so many boys in my house, you can be sure that super heroes are a big part of our conversations and entertainment line up. We were eager to check out some of the fun new videos from DCKids & Warner Bros’ new YouTube channels – included are some of our favorites like Batman Unlimited, DC Super Friends, and Scooby-Doo. Timmy especially liked this one of Batman and Green Arrow during a training exercise. Batman is his favorite, so this was no surprise!

At the Movies with #FandangoFamily

There are some great movies on the big screen right now and I am excited to see a few. My older kiddos have already seen The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, and I must say that I am insanely jealous. I devoured all three books in a matter of days and saw the first and second on their opening days. Mockingjay has been out for a while, but I have yet to get away to see it. And it’s killing me!

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1

Have you seen Mockinjay? What did you think?

If you are like me and haven’t seen it yet, be sure to buy tickets to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 on Fandango.com and you could win a 2015 Mazda3 4-door!

Big Hero 6 and Penguins of Madagascar are on my younger kiddos’ list of must-see movies this month, but I can’t wait to take them to see Annie. It opens next Friday and I have already bought tickets to take the whole family… Buy 4, get one free on Fandango.com!

What movie are you looking most forward to seeing?

How to Fight Dry Skin this Winter

With cold weather usually comes dry, flaky skin and chapped lips. But, you can battle dry skin and imperfections with just one product – Johnson’s Baby Oil Gel – and avoid trips to multiple beauty or drugstores as the weather gets colder.

How to Fight Dry Skin

First of all, it’s uber important to drink lots and lots of water. I think most of us tend to forget to do this in the cold winter months, mostly because we don’t feel parched like we do during hot summer months. Our bodies, especially our skin, need water. And lots of it. Even now.

Johnson’s Baby Oil Gel is my go-to of all of the Johnson’s products just for me. My favorite is the Shea & Cocoa Butter (shown above) and I use it all year. Here are some of the ways I use it in the winter:

  • Apply right after showering to lock in moisture and enhance your natural glow. I like to apply while my skin is still damp.
  • Massage in to hands to keep from getting dry and flaky and in to nail beds to help soften cuticles.
  • Apply on feet before putting on your socks right before bed. By morning your feet will feel hydrated, moisturized, and baby soft.
  • Dab on lips to prevent drying out and to create a smooth and glossy pout.
  • Use as a massage oil to help relieve the stress of the Holiday Season.

Win all 3 Baby Oil Gel varieties!

#Safety1st Travel Safety #Giveaway

It is super important to travel safely with your kiddos. With the help of Safety 1st, we have always been well prepared for a quick trip to the grocery store or a long day trip.

The Elite 80 3-in-1 car seat is one of the best on the market, in my opinion. With it’s super-extended weight range, this seat is the only one you will need for your kiddo, from infancy to toddlerhood and beyond*, making it well worth the price. With Air Protect + I know my baby is well protected.

Air Protect + combines the advanced protection of our Air Protect® cushion system with patented GCell HX™ foam designed with hexagonal shapes for superior protection around the torso. TOGETHER they provide full body side impact protection. 

With the Just-in-Case Storage Station we stay well organized while on the go. The best part is that it secures safely to the floor of the vehicle, so – in the horrible case of an accident – things stay put.

Keeping an eye on baby while driving is made possible with the Front or Back BabyView Mirror. The mirror clips to the visor for forward-facing kiddos, and attaches to the rear window for rear-facing babies.

What makes your ride with Baby safe?
