The Chevy Traverse is the perfect vehicle for any family. Whether you love to hit the beach, have to take a carload of kids to the game, go to the grocery store, or any of the other myriad ways we use our vehicles, the Chevy Traverse delivers every time.
Summer Time with the Chevy Traverse
Summer is all about fun, sun, travel and family time. Our summers are always filled to the brim. Trips to the park, the occasional day trip and weekly runs to the grocery store are all on our agenda, and we need something that can stand up to all of our family’s needs. The Chevy Traverse can handle anything a family throws at it.
When summer rolls around, we love to hit the beach. Believe it or not, there are some nice beach spots in Rhode Island. With three kids, every trip to the beach requires some major packing. Beach towels, toys, snacks, drinks and baby supplies for my youngest are all priorities, and all of that stuff takes up a ton of space. A Chevy Traverse would make our lives much easier. We have a vehicle with just enough space to fit it all in, but it would be nice to have a Traverse to house all of our beach stuff. With its best-in-class maximum cargo space, we’d be able to easily get all of our beach supplies into the vehicle and have some room left over rather than having just enough space for us to sit.
Stocking Up on Life
My oldest daughter, my son and I love to do crafts together, and we frequently hit our local craft store to get various supplies. Generally speaking, we’ll hit the craft store as well as the grocery store. It’s a great way to get everything done in one trip, but sometimes our vehicle gets a little cramped. With the Chevy Traverse, there’s plenty of room for all of our supplies AND for us.
The Chevy Traverse – Because Life Happens
Life is a big ocean. There are ebbs and flows and high and low tides. And you need to be able to go with that flow. With the Chevy Traverse, grocery shopping, chauffeuring children, day trips, and more are no problem. Whatever happens, you’ll always be ready! With best-in-classmaximum cargo space, seating for up to 8* and a 5-Star Overall Score for Safety** the Chevy Traverse is a spacious and safe vehicle with plenty of room for today’son-the-go family. AND I WANT ONE!

I am honored to be chosen as a member of the #PlayLikeHasbro community. Hasbro toys is near to my heart since they are a local RI company. I have been buying their toys for years upon years! Over the next year, I will be telling you about some of the great Hasbro toys out there! You can find them online, as well as toy stores such as Toys ‘R’ Us!
Two of the toys we recently received were the Crocodile Dentist and Transformers 1 Step Changers! We have tested out these toys over the last few weeks and they are both HUGE hits in my household.
First of all, I am a dentist so naturally the Crocodile Dentist game would go over so well with our family. Even mommy likes this one! This is a fun game that the whole family can play! Hayley loves to see all the crocodile’s teeth and Zane likes to pretend to put his finger in the mouth, and reenact a scene from Jaws! LOL!
** This hilarious Crocodile Dentist game challenges you to watch out for Silly Jock Croc’s sore tooth. When you press down on a tooth, he’ll chomp if it’s sore! You lose if he chomps you, but if your daring dentistry is better than anyone else’s, you’ll win!**
Now Zane recently got introduced to transformers and he is in love with them! He thinks it is so cool that his car goes from car to transformer! He brings it to school EVERY SINGLE day to show his buddies how neat the transformers truly are.
**In the Transformers: Robots in Disguise animated series, Bumblebee leads a new team of Autobots. Their mission: capture the Decepticons that are loose on Earth … and do it while remaining Robots in Disguise. Join Bumblebee and his team and help them chase down Decepticons with figures that switch between modes in 1 awesome step! Transformers: Robots in Disguise 1-Step Changers let you experience the wow of the fluid conversion you see your favorite Transformers characters perform. This Bumblebee figure converts with a simple pinch! **

So last week, I had at the absolute pleasure of visiting LA for the #AntManEvent press trip! This trip was a dream come true because not only was I able to interview a fabulous cast/crew but it was also my first very press trip for Marvel! Amazing was the only way to describe it!! I will have tons of interview and posts for you in the coming weeks but I want to make sure you all know that Ant-Man comes out on July 17th! I will tell you that this movie will be a summer hit and a fan favorite for all the Marvel fans out there. It is that good!
The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
Marvel’s “Ant-Man” stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne, Corey Stoll as Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket, Bobby Cannavale as Paxton, Michael Peña as Luis, Tip “T.I.” Harris as Dave, Wood Harris as Gale, Judy Greer as Maggie, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, and Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym. Directed by Peyton Reed and produced by Kevin Feige, p.g.a., Marvel’s “Ant-Man” delivers a high-stakes, tension-filled adventure on July 17, 2015.
This past Monday, Ant-Man also premiered on the Red Carpet and I wanted to share with you some of the gorgeous photos from this event!
Stay tuned for much more…
*I worked with the Card Cubby. All my opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.*
I have TONS and TONS of cards that I receive for holidays, for blog reviews, and from friends for my birthday. I have gift cards for so many different stores but no where to put them safely and in an organized manner. I tend to lose cards because I do not store them in one location. For instance, I put one card in my wallet..another card in my car. By the time the day is over, I can’t find the cards anymore. This is where the Card Cubby comes in!
The Card Cubby is an organized way to keep track of all your gift cards and credit cards. This ingenious product was featured on Good Morning America and NBC news to name a few. It is has compartments and is alphabetical to keep track of your cards in an efficient and effective way. You can then leave the Card Cubby at home or take it with you, so you have your gift cards ready when you need them.
Besides a place to store cards, it could double up as a pocketbook with its clear strap and a pocket to keep your license, as well loose change. It makes it easy to take a few things out of your big pocketbook and make it more organized. No need to lug around your huge pocketbook anymore!
I love the card cubby because it has made my life as a blogger much more organized. I simply put my gift cards alphabetic and when I am ready to use, I pull them out of the card cubby. Now whenever I get gift cards, I have a much organized system!
Be sure to check out the Card Cubby today for all your card organizational needs!

*We received Muck Boots for review. All my opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.*
One of my most favorite boots for the kids is Muck Boots! While it is the summer, it is still unbelievably rainy during this time of year. When I send my kids off to camp in Muck Boots, I know their feet are not getting wet! They are sturdy boots, but most of all, extremely comfortable. You should see my little guy prancing around the house in his Muck Boots. They are stylish too!
The Muck Boots feature a stretch-fit neoprene top that snugs closely to little legs, keeping warmth in and the cold out. Plus, it’s flexible enough to make it easier for Mommy to put the boots on squirmy little legs! While Zane is pretty good at not squirming, the boot makes it so easy for him to put on and take off himself. The insulation on the boot is also amazing! It is like walking on air! I know both Zane and I are huge fans of Muck boots and will continue to be for a long time!
We were sent the Muck Boots Rover II kids boots for review for Zane . This boot is completely insulated and is made for kids to have fun in the rain, snow, mud, and cold weather. It is 100 percent waterproof and I can assure you no matter how wet you think your kids feet will be when they jump in all those winter puddles, their feet will remain warm and dry!
This summer be sure to check out Muck Boots for all your raining day needs. Once the winter hits, it will convert to a great winter boot! Happy shopping!
