Getting Back To Fitness | @SexyMomsRun

 Disclosure:  I was invited to participate on a blog tour, to help get the word out about family fitness and help raise awareness of the Sexy Mom’s Running Club.  For my participation, I received a gift bag with goodies.  In no way did this influence my opinion.

 Lately, I have to admit, I have been really lazy. Hubby says I need to get out and get active again with my Zumba class.  He is so right!  I felt so much better when I was attending a fitness class regularly.

Taking Time Out

My laziness began when the kids picked up a summer cold.  I was so focused on getting them better.  Then I caught their germs.  As usual, that cold didn’t stop me from attending events and other commitments, running myself ragged that I think I developed walking pneumonia (totally self diagnosed since I never went to the doctor).  At that point, all I wanted to do was sleep.

A few years back, The Hubster and I (back before we said “I Do”) had the opportunity to experience Bodies, an exhibit that was featured in Los Angeles.  Now, the exhibit will be opening here, in Orange County in August, and I can’t wait to go again.  

Bodies and Titanic

Celebrate The Summer at Islands With A Giveaway | @islandsburgers #ad

Disclosure:  I was invited to a blogger event at Islands Restaurant to sample their new summer menu and share with Toddler Trails fans.  In no way did this alter my opinion about Islands or their menu items.  All opinions are my own.

Last week a few blogger friends and I had the opportunity to check out the new Summer menu at Islands.  I know you’ve been there, Islands Burgers is a delicious burger joint with the Hawaiian Island theme.   To celebrate the season, they have added a few items you need to check out!

Book Review: The Tale of The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy | @mbrockenbrough #ad

Disclaimer:  We received a copy of “The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy” in order to get our take on the children’s book and share our opinions, which are completely unbiased.  


Since we love to read, it’s always fun to check out new books, especially when you get a chance to work with directly the authors or illustrators, so when I was put in touch with Israel Sanchez, I was delighted to receive a copy of the book he illustrated: “The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy”.

Is Your Toddler Truly Safe Around Your Flat Panel TV?

Disclosure:  I was contacted by representatives from Sanus, who asked for my participation in sharing information regarding the safety of flat panel tvs and Sanus’ tv wall mounts, even offered one to sample while giving away another to a valued reader.  All opinions are completely my own.

Do you have one of these flat panel tvs in your home like we do?  I have to tell you, with two toddlers running around, and so many friends from numerous playdates, it’s a wonder that it hasn’t fallen over!
