National Geographic, #WeirdWednesday

As many of you might know, I am a National Geographic Kids Insider!  #NGKInsider I’m honored to be a part of the National Geographic Kids Beta Ambassador program. So far, it’s been amazing going behind the scenes at one of my favorite non-profits. I’ve got to interview LeVar Burton, get pointers from one of National Geographic’s amazing photographers, Kelley Miller, and many other exciting behind the scenes opportunities. My girls love the National Geographic books and magazines because they are interesting and the stunning photos have always caught their attention. So you can imagine their excitement when we received a holiday surprise package in the mail the other day from National Geographic; a box filled with gorgeous Nat Geo Kid books. First Big Book of the Ocean, Ultimate U.S. Road Trip Atlas, Ultimate Weird but true 2, Treasury of Egyptian Mythology, The World is Waiting for YOU, Space Encyclopedia, Ye Olde Weird but True and Ella’s Bath and Animal Creativity book. My girls went wild! The books are absolutely gorgeous and what a fantastic holiday gift for the little bibliophile or adventurer in your family! My first thought was I wish all kids could have these amazing books. Well, guess what? National Geographic Kids has partnered it me and we are going to do just that. On December 4th, National Geographic is declaring Wednesday #WeirdWednesday and will be encouraging the world to take over social media with weird but true facts and photos.  NGK will be crowning Austin, Texas weird but true town of the year. Voting begins for next year’s WBT town at www. Weirdbuttruetown.com. Maybe your town will be crowned in 2014! Are you in? In celebration, we will be hosting a #WeirdWednesday National Geographic Kids Twitter party. It will be at 9 pm EST/ 6 pm EST on Wednesday, December 4th, #WeirdWednesday. We will be giving away loads of great National Geographic books focusing on the Weird But True series. I’d love to invite you to our #WeirdWednesday Twitter Party on Wednesday, December 4th at 6:00 PM PST/ 9:00 PM EST!  We’ll be giving away several National Geographic Kids books during the Twitter Party!!!

This year, I am hosting my first ever Holiday Gift Guide and I have the privilege of sharing with you some of the hottest gifts this year. I think the My Girl’s Dollhouse by Goodtoy is going to be the it toy this Christmas. If you were at BlogHer this year, you may have remembered being astonished by the My Girl’s Dollhouse at Sweet Suite. FInally, a place for all of their American Girl Dolls to live. I walked in and it caught my eye immediately because it truly is astounding to see in person. My first thought was, “My girl’s would go crazy for this!” I just knew it would be the gift that made their jaw drop on Christmas morning. If you saw it, you know exactly what I am talking about. Have you ever walked into a room, a store, or seen something on television that you just knew your kids would lose their ever-loving minds over? The kind of thing that you just knew would be the gift to end all gifts and then on Christmas morning or birthday eve or whatever the case may be, the gift fell flat…like a fat man into a shallow pool? Well, this is not “that” gift. This is the gift to end all gifts for little girls. This is a dollhouse for American Girl dolls, or any other 18 inch doll. It’s called the My Girl’s Dollhouse and is one of the first of many quality children’s products under its Goodtoy brand. I saw this thing in person at an expo in July and, at 40, I nearly flipped out at the sight of this huge dollhouse. I’m pretty sure, I can safely say, that my daughters would lose it on Christmas morning. My daughters have just begun to get into American Girl. They each have three dolls, and they love to dress up like them and serve them tea and spoil them rotten. American Girl Dolls are my daughters’ favorite toy right now. I am fine with it because they are wholesome, are historically teachable and my girls love them. The My Girl’s Dollhouse is a giant, high-quality, customizable wood dollhouse for 18-inch dolls and their furniture, clothing, and accessories. Can you say American Girl Doll dream house? Because that is what it is. The My Girl’s Dollhouse is 6-feet tall, 5 feet wide and 2 feet deep. It is huge. It comes in four styles, classic and whimsical and built with exactly the same high quality wood. But the real fun begins inside the house. The house has five rooms that the girls can customize to their own liking; match their bedroom to the American girl’s bedroom. There are 12 different styles of rooms to choose from. The house has two rooms on the main floor, two rooms on the second story and one huge room that acts as the attic. The attic has a bar to hang the dolls clothes on; think of it as the American Girl Doll Dream walk-in-closet. But remember the house does not come with the dolls or the furniture, which is all your responsibility to provide. Luckily, we already have some dolls and now I just have to set out looking for the furniture. I’ve been scouring the Internet for the best deals on the furniture and I have found some really cute pieces. There has never been a dollhouse mass-produced for 18-inch dolls, the My Girl’s Dollhouse will be the first of its kind. I think this is going to be a big seller, hot commodity toy this Christmas season. Every little girl is going to want one. I was lucky enough to be provided one My Girl’s Dollhouse to review by Good Toy and I will be hosting a Twitter party on Wednesday November 20th, at 9 pm. EST and one lucky participant will win a My Girl’s Dollhouse of her own and make this Christmas be one your little girl will never forget. What do you think of a dollhouse for the American Girl Dolls?

I’d love to invite you to our My Girl’s Dollhouse #MyGirlsDollHouse Twitter Party on Wednesday, November 20th at 6:00 PM PST/ 9:00 PM EST!  We’ll be giving away 1 My Girl’s Dollhouse during the Twitter Party!!!

sprint, #DriveSafe, Twitter party

As a mother and someone who drives with my children in the car with me 85% of the time, I think a lot about safety while driving. I want our time in the car to be as safe as possible and that means, no texting and driving. I have to admit, it is difficult. Well, Sprint has come up with a device that disables text messaging while you’re driving.  How awesome is that? It saves you from even being tempted to text.

It’s called an OBD2 device or User Based Insurance. The Sprint wireless network hosts a line of products for insurance companies that plug into your car under the dashboard. It can send information about how your automobile is being driven and you can disable text messaging while the car is being driven. You can ask your insurance agent for one or see if they’re available here.

Honestly, I don’t let anyone else drive my children (because I am crazy) but this would be awesome if nannies were picking the kids up from school so that I could know how safely she was driving and disable texting.

Car accidents are the leading cause of death in U.S. teenagers. Teen drivers are three times more likely to be in a fatal car crash. More teens die from texting and driving than drunk driving. I also thinking this could be a fantastic tool to use with your teen driver to keep them safe.

Sprint, M2M, Twitter party, no texting while driving

Now that I’ve told you a little bit about this revolutionary device that will keep you and your loved ones safe, I’d love to invite you to our Sprint M2M #DriveSafe Twitter Party on Wednesday, September 18th at 6:00 PM PST/ 9:00 PM EST!  We’ll be giving away 3 $25 Amazon Gift Cards during the Twitter Party!!!
