Sweet Suite Swag Box full of toys! It has arrived!

17 POUNDS…. Of PURE HAPPINESS!

Ahh! We decided to open it up with All.. Three.. Boys….!! It wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. We had some small fights and fits.

(We are trying to teach them about sharing, which btw, isn’t going so well!)

We had to open it outside because our house still isn’t all put together from being away so long! (In case you WERE wondering, I DID get all the laundry done, well cleaned at least, ..in huge pile in our utility room, Ha!)

Look at this squishy! Ah! We haven’t had one this big before and it’s SUPER squishy and slow rising!

IMG_3852

We looked through everything but a lot I put back for future videos! I know, I know.. but that trip costed a pretty penny, so I need these for individual videos!

This Mic Guy looks so fun! It’s a 2 in 1 wireless microphone and bluetooth speaker! How fun is this going to be!

This! Ah! This is by Moose Toys and it looks so fun! You have to dig out your surprise collector toys!

IMG_3854

I LOVE Squishies! This one was SUPER cute! Check out our video to see it!

IMG_3855

Oh and SLIME! I’m not a fan of slime, because it’s super messy and the boys got it all over Skye when we first got her.. and yea.. I’ll stop there.. BUT they do love it. So we keep it in one area of the house now! This is Frozen Treats Slime and they have scents too! Ok, so this DOES have me intrigued!

Now this was cool, it was like a squishy with in a plush!

So this is what I ended up putting back for later! (even though the boys did go back to grab more out!) We have at least a months full of videos in this box!

 

It was so generous of all these companies to send out these samples! I can’t wait to start filming again! BIG thank you to all of them and for Sweet Suite inviting us to attend! I can’t wait for next year!

Home Sweet Home!

We made it home! (Well sorta, but that’s another story!)

We decided to split the trip home in half, which is what we SHOULD have done going to NYC, but we know now for future trips!

We stopped by a park on the way back, which was fun. The boys were to tired and antsy so I told them after each couple of hours, IF they were good they would get some surprises along the way.

….Needless to say, they only got one, ha!

IMG_3789

These Cutie Fruities are super cute! They entertained them for at least 20 mins!

IMG_3786

We even found some fun ice creams along the way! Sponge Bob was a hit!

IMG_3796

We had about 30 mins until we got back to Eaton, Ohio, so we decided to stop by Dorthy Lane Market for a pick me up! We LOVE this place! My sister, (who is Paleo), was able to find some food here too, which was great, it’s hard to find Paleo foods while traveling and she was famished!

IMG_3802

Baby A was sooo happy to see us and his super soaker was a hit! He looked like a little ghost buster!

So ya.. I’m so ready for life to get back to the “Norm”. I loved being able to take a break from normal life, but I SOO missed home, family, my hubby and my baby!

I have a ton of emails to send for follow ups from the fair, my work for the resume company to get caught up on and TONS of laundry to do.

If only I could get a laundry fairy.. HA!

Til next time!

Site seeing in NYC! Staten Ferry, Ice Cream on Wall Street and more!

We woke up.. extremely sore and tired the next day, so we stayed in until 1pm before we ventured out!

We started out catching a bus, which went smooth at first, until we missed it, then had to purchase another set of tickets, then we got on the bus waiting for the driver to scan our mobile tickets, only for him to look at us like we were crazy.. what did we do wrong? lol

IMG_3582

The boys did like the bus ride though! LJ is taking it all in!

IMG_3586

LOOK! NYC on the other side!

Ok, so after the bus, we ventured to the ..subway.. in which we took the subway in the wrong direction! (This is were I was slapping myself in the face Ha!)

IMG_3608

Anyways.. it’s all good! We just ended up being near Staten Island so we took a Ferry! We had planned to take the Ferry at some point so it all worked out! We got some lunch ( more like dinner since it was around 4 when we actually got some food!) at Steve’s Pizza! Tiffany (my awesome sister that was a trooper and came with us!) stopped at a Paleo joint in NYC, which was totally awesome.. well.. because she IS Paleo and didn’t get eat much on this trip so far so this was great!

So, we walked a lot, and had to call an Uber a few times ha, but we did what we could! It was super fun and super stressful at the same time.

The Ferry was fun, I got some fun shots during it too! We saw the Statue of Liberty.. not as close as I had hoped, but hey the Ferry was free! So we will take it.. Ha! We took the Ferry to the Island and then back. Boys loved seeing all the boats and it felt safe too, the sides were really high, so made this mom feel safe! Ah.. and the fish. They had these huge tanks in the waiting area for the Ferry, and LJ was very taken with them. So much that him and Zieke took out their tablets and had a photo session!

Ah and the ice cream.. We had Milk Cereal ice cream on Wall Street! (The boys didn’t like, of course! So there went $20 bucks in the trash, no, like literally! We threw it all away!) I had a few bites, it definitely tasted like milk cereal, which was really strange but fun!

We also found a fun little park. They were able to fun around for a bit before heading back. We ended up, when all said and done, calling an Uber, we were going to walk to the bus station, but we ended up walking the wrong way, and by the time we found that out, the correct path would have taken us over 35 mins, PLUS we had to ride the bus back to our apartment still.. and it was after 9pm so yes.. an Uber it was! ( Uber’s are awesome BTW! We took a total of 4 when we were here)

All in all, it was a great experience, but I think next time (if there is one), we will stay in NYC and not in NJ as it was WAYYY to much walking, taking buses, Uber expenses and so on.

So, we are headed out soon. We might hit up a park before heading back home, but not sure yet. This trip has definitely gotten the best of me!

Country girl out!

NYC Sweet Suite Toy Fair

Sweet SuiteAhhh! So we are gearing up for this fair! I am super nervous and excited at the same time!

Our channels are so small (hopefully not forever), so it’s very intimidating going into this huge event!

We are planning on driving there ( a 10.. hour.. drive.. eek!). We still have a dentist appointment to go to and we also have to drop off our puppy (Skye) at my sisters, as well as getting some items for our trip and we still have to pack!

This trip is going to be such an investment, but it sure is a dream come true! Boy’s will love it I’m sure, plus we will get some swag sent to us later on!

Well soo that’s day 1.. not to much excitement going on.. yet!

A very stressed Mommy B
