A Review of ABC Mouse - Is It Worth It?

Before I tell you about ABCMouse.com, let me just point out that I was not paid for my review, nor has anyone given me anything for free to review (although, that would be nice...).  I am also not competing for the "Mom of the Year" award as some people have accused me of (come on, you know there's no such award- we'd all be winners!).  I'm just a mom who likes to share ideas. I was a teacher, you know.  Maybe this blog is a way for me to keep teaching, but this time I'm teaching everyone about cool stuff.  'Nuff said.

Awesome Painted Pumpkin Ideas from Around the Web

Get those paintbrushes ready!  It's pumpkin decorating season!  I searched the web for some of the coolest painted pumpkin ideas I could find, and here's what I came up with.  I tried to give credit where it's due and link back when possible, so please know that not all of these creations are mine (but the Angry Birds below are ours!).  They certainly inspired me, so maybe they'll inspire you, too.  Happy painting!

LEMYKA Skincare for Sensitive Skin : A Jersey Momma Review

Being a blogger comes with some perks, and one of them is trying new products and telling you what I think about them. The nice people at LEMYKA Skincare contacted me to see if I would be willing to test their lotions and washes, so I thought, why not? The Jersey Momma's Boy has very sensitive skin, and I, myself, have very dry skin, so I was pleasantly surprised to see just how well LEMYKA'S products worked for us. If you're looking for a high quality, natural, organic solution for skincare, then read on to see what LEMYKA is all about!

10 Easy Halloween Cupcakes That You Can Make Yourself

This year I am a Homeroom Parent for the Jersey Momma's Boy's class. Halloween parties are quickly approaching, so I've already started looking for cute treats to serve in the classroom. Fortunately, the kids in our district can still enjoy a sweet treat if we offer some healthy treats, too.

In all fairness, I know there are some incredible cupcake works of art out there (just check out THIS adorable pair) but my list is really about cupcakes you can easily make yourself. At home. In your own lil' kitchen. And I tried to give credit where credit is due, but if anyone has any issues with me printing their links or photos, please don't hesitate to let me know!  Drum roll, please....

Autumn Review of Sesame Place: The Count's Halloween Spooktacular

We ventured out of New Jersey again to visit Langhorne, Pennsylvania, home of Sesame Place!  About an hour from Central Jersey, Langhorne was not a far ride and is definitely worth seeing if you have little Sesame Street fans at home! And just a note that I was NOT compensated in any way for this post, this is just an honest review of our visit there in the Fall, 'cause that's how I roll.

If you're pressed for time, remember that my blog posts are reader friendly.  You can easily scroll for the info you need.  Check the headlines and be sure to read my JERSEY MOMMA TIPS at the end of this post.
