Blazing Team #NationalYoYoDay | #BlazingTeam #PlayLikeHasbro

Today is National Yo-Yo Day and to help celebrate, I want to give a Blazing Team Beast Wrangler Yo-Yo away to one lucky reader! My husband has some serious yo-yo skills – which is more than I can say for myself. I wish I stuck with it when I was younger because what is more fun than showing off some cool yo-yo moves to your friends? He has been working with my daughters and my oldest has great potential – she has even pulled off a trick or two! I am sure we will be out on our patio tonight practicing to participate in #NationalYoYoDay!

The Nerf Hoop from Hasbro is a Slam Dunk! | #PlayLikeHasbro

My daughter has been asking for a basketball hoop for quite a long time. We are big college basketball fans in this house (go Syracuse!) so I think that is where she gets it from. Not to mention that two of her close cousins play basketball. She was so excited when she saw that the Easter Bunny brought her a Nerf Sports Dude Perfect Shot Hoop! She asked us to set it up right away, so we did. We found a great spot for it in our foyer – where both girls can practice their shots. Basketball has become a nightly activity in our house with this. I love that I can just put down the basket when I don’t want it sticking out. We have had so much fun with this Nerf Hoop from Hasbro and I recommend it for any little basketball fan!

Celebrate Easter with Snoopy & the Peanuts Gang! | #Peanuts #EasterBeagle #Giveaway

Spring is just around the corner, which means we’ll soon be treated to the appearance of daffodils, cherry blossoms – and the Easter Beagle! Yes, our favorite chameleon beagle will be happily hopping from yard to yard, beagle-ears flapping, delivering brightly colored Easter eggs (and a beagle kiss or two) from his Easter basket. My family loves Snoopy and the Peanuts gang! To me, no holiday is complete without watching a Peanuts special. That is what I did every holiday growing up, and my daughters are quickly learning the tradition as well. I couldn’t be more proud of their love for all things Snoopy.
