Save lots of money with Groupon 


This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

I am frugal, that’s no surprise. I love saving money and as a stay at home mom who loves to be pampered and go shopping money can be tight. So a website that offers nothing but the best deals on everything from local fun to clothing, spas and gifts! 

Groupon is my number one spot to find things to do at great prices, like local restaurants, nail salons (one of my favorites) zoos and attractions. It’s wonderful for trying new places and exploring new cities. 

I also recently discovered they have deals on accessories and gifts which is so convenient and great for special occasions, birthdays, anniversaries and you can’t beat the prices! 


And as if all that wasn’t enough, they are completely free, that’s right! No fees, memberships, sip, nada! Just search and start saving tons of money. 

If you are looking for the best deals make sure to check out Groupon next time you need a little getaway or just some pampering. 

Have you heard of Groupon? What are you favorite deals?

Tomodachi Life Nintendo 3DS Available at Best Buy

Tomodachi Life Nintendo DS is a life simulation handheld video game where Mii characters live on an island and interact with each other. They get to live everyday lives and experience things like regular life, like making friends, falling in love, having kids, eating and having fun.

How to Play:

With Tomodachi Life, you will create Mii characters for your game. YOU CAN BE ANYONE!! From your alter ego to people you know or celebrities. It’s pretty neat and you enter their different personalities what they like to do, what they like to eat. You can even create different voices for each character. Then, you add your Mii charcters to your island. To quickly add more characters onto our island, you can choose to import Miis by scanning QR Codes created by other players. You can also share your own Miis with others.

Once you’ve added everyone on your island, you can start living your virtual life. Maybe you will want to get married and have kids. Or write a song and perform it on stage for all the other Mii characters. There is just so much to do in Tomodachi Life.

We all enjoyed playing this game! My kids had a ton of fun with the voice options as well as all the people they could play as. You can purchase Tomodachi Life at Best Buy

Angry Birds Star Wars Millenium Falcon Bounce Game Review & Giveaway!

Like I’ve told you before my entire family loves Star Wars and now my son is obsessed with anything angry birds, so you can image how how feels about Angry Birds Star Wars! Were received a Star Wars in the Millennium Falcon Bounce Game! Bounce in to help the Rebels escape and win! Can you knock the “enemies” off the Millennium Falcon and bounce the Rebel heroes into the cockpit. Launch your balls at the table and bounce them at the target (it may or may not have reminded me of beer pong, just saying!) You get points for every ball you score in the center target, every pig you knock off, and every ball you land in the cockpit. It’s so much fun!

We also reviewed the Angry Birds Star Wars Foam Flyers Storm Trooper Pig Flyer. Classic Star Wars characters get a brand-new Angry Birds twist with the Foam Flyers! And since my daughter is always Princess Leah, my son had to attack her with it. All in good Angry Birds fun!

We all loved it and it arrived just in time for our family game night. This game was a whole adventure on to itself to put together, my kids and I love to assemble things so we had lots of fun with that part too. It comes with stickers to make the box part of the game which made it that much cooler! I would recommend this games to anyone for birthday gifts or any other occasion as they provide entertainment for not only the kids but the entire family.

Now for the fun part, we also got one each of the Angry Birds Star Wars Millenium Falcon Bounce Game and the Angry Birds Foam Flyer. Make sure to enter below! Good Luck and may the force be with you! ;)

***Disclosure: I did receive this product and/or compensation. Neither influenced my opinions, the review is based on my children and my own opinions.

Bump Club of Austin: Expectant Mom Dinner!

I am 25 weeks pregnant this week and I am enjoying every single minute of it! I’ve been in some pain and had a couple scares but we knew this was going to be a difficult pregnancy when we decided to try for another baby. I have many mommy, blogger and other kinds of friends but not many pregnant friends. I also noticed other cities had tons of activities for pregnant and new mommies and I really wanted to find something like that in my area. And I did!

Bump Club of Austin is a social event company for Austin moms and moms to be. They have many activities from fun stress revealing girls night out to informative seminars. As soon as I found them I told my husband we had to attend their next event.

The event was an Expectant Mom Dinner with a Pediatrician Panel at Mandola’s. When we got there he was the only daddy, he was a about to take of running but I convinced him to stay. We had a yummy dinner and got lots of information and advise from a wonderful panel of pediatricians. We also got awesome goodie bags filled with all kinds of samples and full sized products for the belly, baby and beyond :)

They also had really cool giveaways including goodies from Little Miss Pepper Designs, Simple Wishes, Pilates Center of Austin, a BOB Revolution SE Stroller, a 4moms mamaRoo and Cleanwater Tub, AND a Joovy Room & Babasling! And guess what!?!? My hubby won the BOB Revolution Stroller!!! How cool is that! I will post a picture of it when it arrives I promise!

They have quite a few events coming up and they also offer a V.I.P (Very Important Preggo or Parent) subscribtion where you can get lots of exclusives discounts and extra goodies. Make sure to check them our HERE and follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
