Grieving the Loss of a Pregnancy? Loved Baby- 31 Devotionals Giveaway

I have had someone very close to me lose a baby not once but twice.  It was one of the hardest things she has ever had to go through and I can not imagine what she must of felt during those times.  Close to one in four American women will experience the silent grief of pregnancy loss.  Can you believe that number?  One out of four?  Truth be told, you or someone you know, has experienced pregnancy loss.  That’s why getting help, especially help from above is so important!  I would of loved to of given my friend this book when she was going through her time of need, Loved Baby 31 Devotions.

Loved Baby 31 Devotions:

loved baby by sarah philpott

Mom Always Knows did receive a complementary copy of Loved Baby in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are 100% my own.


Helping You Grieve and Cherish Your Child After Pregnancy Loss by Sarah Philpott, PhD

In this book, Sarah shares her own story of loss and those of over 40 women (the Loved Baby Tribe) who have experienced stillbirth, miscarriages and ectopic loss.  This book is written for your heart where other books focus to care for your physical needs.  Your soul will be pampered and you will be able to mourn and cherish the lovely little life that took root in your womb.

The book is divided into 31 devotionals (chapters)  that talk about loss, Christ-filled comfort, tips to manage social media, reconnecting with your partner, nourishing your soul, grief, adoption, new pregnancy and much more.  At the end of each devotional there is a space for some “soul work” about the topic and “prayer time” to help you further reflect.

I really found inspiration reading all the stories from the “Loved Baby Tribe” ladies because they are so strong and full of peace.   Although I have never experienced the loss of a baby, I have experienced great loss in my life and reading through Loved Baby,  I was able to apply and really work through many of the devotionals/verses as well.

Loved Baby: 31 Devotions is MAK approved!

What a great gift idea for someone that might be struggling through the loss of a baby!

Zoobooks- Cater to your Child’s Love for Animals- Review and Giveaway

How cute are these  Zoobooks!    With our ranch adventure last week (you can read about it here) I thought this was a great time to post my review on the Zoobooks I had received.   I love reading to my kids so I was happy to check this out!  We did receive a few magazines at no cost to bring you fine mamas this review!

Does your child love animals?  

Would you like a one-stop-shop resource for your child to have for their animal obsession?  Then you might want to think about getting a subscription to  Zoobooks!

zoobooks for kids

The books are like magazines for kids and each Zoobooks is colorful and vibrant in its  photography and explains things like anatomy, habitat, socialization, etc of an animal or group in an easy-to-understand way for kids. 

 Wildlife Education, Ltd., established in 1980, publishes Zoobooks which include the following breakdown:

  • Zootles, for younger readers 3 to 6 years old, launched in 2005

  • Zoobies, for the littlest learners 0 to 3 years old, launched  in 2008

  • Critters Up Close, durable board books about animals for young explorers 0 to 6 years old.

zootles and zoobies

They also have digital subscriptions, a Secret Jungle website with just-for-kids animal games, puzzles and quizzes as well as an e-Safari email adventures that trek to the best animal sites on the web.  How cool is that!

Zoobooks, Zootles and Zoobies can be found in homes, schools and libraries around the world. You can buy them by subscription or by single editions in the Zoobooks web store,  in select bookstores and in finer zoo, museum, aquarium and park gift shops and specialty retailers around the country.

My kids loved reading their Zoobooks which happen to be about Orangutans!  We also were able to read the Zootles issue about Tigers which included a huge poster inside of a Tiger and even stickers!  As a Mom, I love that the issues include a letter and number to learn about, activity pages for kids and a resource corner for grown-ups.  They were a huge hit at my house.  I also like that they paper they use for the magazine and pages is not thin so it can take some abuse which it is more than likely prone to happen too at your house, like it is mine!

best magazine for kids

This is a nifty little magazine for kids and is MAK approved!  Check them out!

Guess What!  We love Zoobooks so much that we are Co-Sponsoring a Giveaway with Wildlife Education Ltd!  3 Lucky readers will win a 1-yr subscribtion to Zoobooks!

Watchitude Slap Watch Review & Giveaway for Kids

Who doesn’t love the little slap bracelets that took us by storm a few years back!  They are so fun to play with and admit it, you have probably been known to play with your kids slappy thing a time or two!  The quality, however, is not the greatest on SOME of them so I was excited when we were asked to review an up and coming brand called Watchitude,  maker of the coolest little slap watches!  Not only is it a slap bracelet but also a watch.  Actually it is both, Intrigued?  Keep reading!

Mom Always Knows did receive 2 little mermaid watches that you see pictured below in exchange for this review but we have to try out the products that we bring you for review!

Watchitude mermaid

Kids ages 4-12 will love the fun they can have and can pick from over 100 amazing designs available on the Watchitude website!

Look at those colors!  They are bright and vivid, one of the first things I noticed when I pulled mine out of the box!  They have a patent pending process that creates a hi gloss, durable finish of a beautifully printed image on the slap watch band and face so that it never fades or peels.

Watchitude slap watch review

With a daughter entering Kinder this fall, she is starting to ask questions about time!  She likes wearing this because its fun to play with and she loves the mermaids!  I like the educational value it brings because she is asking me what time it is so we can talk about it together!  Both girl and boy designs are available and so many different styles to choose from!  A very cool thing I liked about it as well is that all of the items are mix and match. The watches actually slide off the band so you can wear just the band if you like or put the watch on a different band if you bought different styles.  Great for a kid who likes to show off their attitude like mine do!

best slap watch

I was very impressed by the quality of the band and the watch on these!  Especially like I said, so many of the slap bracelets of the past, were not very good quality! These are made of 100% virgin white silicone, certified safe and completely lead-free, and in compliance with California prop 65 safety guidelines. It is also a thick and comfortable band, and very easy for kids of all ages to put them on, including people with some physical challenges, as there are no small buckles to navigate.  I even wore it for a bit (lol) and it fit me nice and fine so if you are interested Mamas…… : )

slap watch for kids

Always a great gift idea for birthdays and holidays, for your children, grandchildren, and all the kids that are special to you!  The price point starts at $21.99 so a good value for the quality and item you are getting!

This item is MAK approved!

Want your own Watchitude Slap Watch?  You are in luck!  We are having a GIVEAWAY!

Make Life Brighter Review & Giveaway: Light box Arts Light box – Merry Christmas Ornament

Hey y’all!  So these little light boxes from Light box Arts are so cool!  Ever buy home decor from the store and you’re just stuck with it?  You put it somewhere and it works for the season or for your mood but then in a few months you have to put it away.  Not anymore!  You can change the designs on these!  They literally have hundreds of unique art designs to choose from to fit your space and mood!

Light Boxes from Light Box Art are so Cool!

light box arts


We were so excited when we were contacted to review this item for you guys.  The first step was to browse the site and pick the light box and design I wanted.  The website is so easy to navigate.  You can pick if you want just a light box or a box with a design or just a design.  The price point is $12 for designs only and around $20 if you want the box with the art design.  They have several categories to choose from such as inspirational, man cave, office, love, best-sellers, seasonal, kitchen, kids room or you can even design your own!!

light box christmas

I love Christmas and am always looking for awesome decor so I picked the “Merry Christmas Ornament” artwork design with a gray box since we are totally in to gray right now.  We did receive a free light box from Light box Arts to review for you guys but opinions are 100% my own for this review.

The box arrived in a few days packaged nice, neat and safe.  Think cube, because the box is in the shape of a cube and measures about 5x5x2.

best light box

My kids thought they were very cool and wanted one for their rooms!  We probably will order some more because I like easy!  I like things that don’t plug in!  These light boxes are sturdy MDF LED back-lit cubes that take 2 AAA batteries!  Pop in the battery’s and you are ready to go or if you don’t want the back-lit, that’s fine too.

As a mom though, I immediately think night light for the kids room! : )  At this price point, these would make great baby shower or birthday party gifts as well!  The designs on their website for kids are adorable, check them out here.

light box review


Talking about easy, how easy is it to slide out a design and slide a new one in?  Bam, you have changed your decor!  No longer will I have to put this pretty little guy up January 1st after Christmas!  I can use it all year round provided I have another design to go in there!  Here is how they slide out and what the back-lit looks like.  The designs are a little fragile so just be careful when sliding in and out, you don’t want to bend them.

neat christmas decor

Now what design should I get next?  That is the question!  Check out their site and give me some suggestions!  I am really digging their Man Cave selection.  I think my husband would love it!

Little Dress Up Shop.com Review & Christmas In July Amazing Giveaway

As a little girl I loved to dress up in my moms clothes and play dress up.  I would play for hours and be many great things….a Princess, a Teacher, a Bride… whatever my little imagination could come up with!  I don’t think the apple falls too far from the tree as I have two little girls who not a day goes by that they don’t dress up as something.  A Doctor, a Hairdresser, a Veterinarian; but their all time favorite thing to do is princess play and princess dress!  Oh the delightful times and tea parties they have! : )

We love playing dress up!

I was so excited when I was asked to write a review on the most adorable princess dresses from Little Dress Up Shop.com.  Although we did receive the dresses pictured below in exchange for this review, opinions are 100% my own and I enjoyed writing this review for you!

My girls waited and asked everyday when the mailman came if their dresses were here!  They were so excited to get them.  I was impressed how they were packaged and how quickly they shipped when ordered.  The site offers free shipping always to the USA!

We were sent the following items to try on and play:

  • Deluxe White Fairy Wings

  • Teal Blue flower Fairy Costume

  • Deluxe Sparkle Pink Princess dressLittle Dress Up Shop.com reviewLittle Dress Up Shop.com


As a Mom and primary consumer of these types of item for my household I am always looking for a few things- Comfort, look and Ease.  What I mean by this is,  Will my kids be comfortable?   Is it cute and stylish?  Will it be easy for me to take care of and not fall apart after I wash?

Let’s find out!  But first the fun stuff.

Little Dress Up Shop.com fairy dressLittle Dress Up Shop.com princess dress


Of course the pink dress was for Chloe but she wanted (as always) what big sister had so they switched.  Luckily they are a size apart and often times I can make things work and in this case it did.  Nothing better than playing with our country’s FLAG, after all, it was 4th of July weekend here in the great state of Texas! : )

cute princess dress for girlpink princess dress for child

My girls had so much fun that day playing in the fairy and princess dress and actually all weekend! We look forward to many good times in them!  Not only can we use them all year round but for play dates with friends, Halloween and dress up days at school!  I was impressed by the detail on the dresses, especially the pink one.

princess dress giveawaykid holding american flagprincess dress up


The website boasts that the dresses “won’t shed glitter in your machine and all over your house.” They were 100% correct.  I have had the dresses several days and washed them and no glitter. Several of the dresses we have had in the past, from other places, have problems with glitter and items falling off of the dresses/outfits!

glitter free princess dresspurple and blue fairy dress


The moment of truth has arrived.  

I asked my girls if they loved their dresses and if they were comfortable and they both said YES.  Check√

They passed my washer test.  No pieces or glitter came off in the wash and the dresses still look brand new.  Check√

Last but not least, are the dresses cute and stylish?  Well, you can see from yourself that they are and my girls said YES YES Yes.  Check√

If you love the two items my girls are pictured in, you are in luck!  They are part of the FLASH SALE going on this month on  July 11th so make sure you save the date and head over to Little Dress Up Shop.com.  Luckily for us all they are having a Christmas in July sale from July 5-25 sitewite no exclusions so these are good even on sale priced items, clearance items and discounted.

Taco Bueno Wholotta Box Review & Giveaway

Tacos for All: A Wholotta for a Wholitta

Living in Texas, of course, my family loves us some Mexican food!  I have been hearing about this Wholotta Box so I had to check it out for myself!  $10 to feed my family?  Who can beat that?  I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised by what we were in for with the Wholotta Box.  It truly is a WHOLE LOT of great food! And oh by the way, the best part about this was I did not have to cook! As a busy working Mom, I sure appreciate that!

This is a sponsored post for Taco Bueno. All opinions are 100% my own.  I did receive compensation to share my opinion of the Wholotta box.

Taco Bueno Wholotta Box Review

Pictured above is the box with all tacos but you can get all burritos or mix and match 6 and 6.  We chose to get 6 and 6 so we could have some variety for dinner!   You even get sides of rice, beans, chips and salsa.  We chuckled when the counter staff gave us a big box.  Yes, it really comes in a box, like a pizza box; think if you ordered an extra large pizza!  That was the size of the box!  (Service with a smile below, of course.)  The food was hot and fresh and a great variety.  The kids ate the chips, rice and burritos and we ate everything!  I love love love their salsa!  For a drive-thru chain restaurant, it can compete with a traditional sit down restaurants with their salsa for you salsa lovers! : )

 Wholotta Box

If you are having a party, get together, meeting or just need a budget-friendly way to feed a large group of family, friends or co-workers then this is your answer!  While we were there I watched a woman pick up and walk out with 3 Wholotta boxes!  Wow!  That’s a lot of food! : )

eating Taco Bueno taco

We didn’t finish the box, there was plenty left over.  Enough that 1 or 2 more adults could of ate with us for sure.  Any takers on our left-overs below?! : )

I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug! The Sweetest Little Book Review and Giveaway

There is nothing better then when you find a great book to read to your kids!  Sometimes it seems hard to find nowadays but Caroline B. Cooney really found several ways to give us all warm cozy bear hugs in her new book, “I’m Going to Give you a Bear Hug.”  Who doesn’t like warm cozy bear hugs, right?  I know we do in my house!

Without giving too much of this sweet book away, a series of comparisons are made about what kind of hug you are going to get.  Each page is illustrated beautifully by Tim Warnes as you read  each animal/hug comparison.   The pages are big, bold and crisp and the pictures seem to jump out at you.  Kids of all ages will love this book but especially ages 4-8!

Here are a couple of my favorite pages of the book!

“I’m going to give you a pig hug.  A never fail, curly tail, big big big big, big hug.”  

“I’m going to give you a bug hug.  A wiggly wriggly, makes you giggly, creepy crawly snug hug.”


The first night I read the book to my kids, they asked that I read it again.  This never happens!  The next night, they asked that I read it again and asked if they could read it to me.  The pictures are so vivid that my kids know what is going on just by looking at them.

Cooney and Warnes do a lovely job with this feel-good book which we use as an opportunity in our house to talk to our girls about hugs, love and even animals.  The very end is just perfect for bedtime “Say your prayers and kiss goodnight.”  For a fairly quick and easy read, Mom Always Knows, for sure, recommends this book to all our readers!  Hurry and get your copy below on Amazon (Affiliate Link) or sign up for our Giveaway for a FREE copy here!  1 winner will receive a new Hardback, value $16.99!!  What a great Easter basket or gift idea!!
