The Perfect Treat For Family Movie Night + Giveaway

***Read all the way to the end to see how you can win 1 of 5 Walmart gift cards!***
When visiting the theater as a kid, I’d literally run to the popcorn and candy counter.  I still run to this day, only I’m a little bit slower. 😉 There’s just something about salty and savory treats while watching a blockbuster movie on the big screen!

My husband and I used to be able to see movies 3 times a month, but since having our daughter, that has diminished to twice a year, if that.

But having a kid doesn’t stop us from enjoying a good flick, we just have to wait a little longer for them to be released to Redbox so we can watch them at home on our very own big screen.

And you can’t watch a movie at home without a delicious treat. Our favorite treat is chocolate, more specifically, this new MILKA OREO Chocolate candy bar.

Being a New Mom Has Challenges; Using Dreft Lessens Some of Them! #Amazinghood

dreft baby shower bundle

“This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Dreft. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.”


When I had my little one a year ago, I honestly didn’t really know what to expect, or know what I REALLY needed. There’s so many things at the store for babies and children that are so unnecessary that it’s hard to decipher what you should get and what you shouldn’t. But, one of the things I knew we had to have, but didn’t get at our baby shower was the real necessities, like Dreft baby laundry supplies.

I’ve used Dreft ever since Arya was born and prefer it because it smells great without being overpowering, is gentle enough for my little ones sensitive skin and is tough on her food stained clothes since she’s eating solids regularly.


If you haven’t stocked up on Dreft, I highly recommend requesting it at your baby shower if you have one coming up, along with diapers, because you’ll be going through so much laundry from blowouts that you wished you had an endless supply.  Forget the diaper pails, the wipe warmers and what have you. Both are unnecessary expenses that will save you money in the long run for the things you DO need if you leave them off your to buy list.

Dreft believes that for many moms and dads, doing baby’s laundry is more than just an ongoing chore – it serves as a way to relish in the amazing moments and stages of babyhood.

As babies grow and develop, laundry needs change for both little ones and their families, which is why Dreft introduced a line of laundry products that are specially designed for different stages of babyhood.

  • Dreft Stage 1: Newborn
  • Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby
    – Helps remove 99% of baby food stains
    – Helps remove dirt and grass stains for your crawling baby
  • and Dreft Blissfuls

Dreft is also partnering with popular reality TV couple Sean and Catherine Lowe from “The Bachelor” to celebrate their new role as expectant parents and share their beautiful, messy journey of “amazinghood.”

I watched these two on Sean’s season of the Bachelor and felt like they had the least connection. Just goes to show that I know nothing like Jon Snow. ha!

Sean and Catherine Lowes’ parenting journey and partnership with Dreft commenced at their Dreft “Loads of Love” baby shower (on April 27th) – where the couple was showered with all the love, support and essentials needed to prepare them for the arrival of their precious new baby.

When asked about their baby shower registry, Sean and Catherine have noted that Dreft Newborn detergent was a must have. Their parents used it, their friends recommended it, and the smell of freshly washed baby clothes has made them even more excited for the little one’s arrival.

Over the next year, everyone can share in the Lowe’s journey through #Amazinghood by following Dreft on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter where Sean and Catherine will be sharing exclusive content and messy memories.

In partnership with Dreft #amazinghood, they’d like to provide one of my readers with a special baby shower gift that will contain

I Choose Members Mark Advantage Infant Formula Over Any Name Brand Formula

I Choose Members Mark Advantage Infant Formula Over Any Name Brand Formula

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Perrigo, the makers of Members Mark Infant Formula. All opinions are 100% mine.

When trying formula’s for your little one, have you ever noticed a ton of foam after shaking the bottle up? Yeah we have too and it has contributed to some gas which has made for a cranky baby at times.

After trying out Members Mark Advantage Infant Formula, I am happy to say that there is no foam, not even after shaking it religiously. Happy baby, happy mama!

I also taste tested the formula and noticed that it does have a slight sweet taste which babies love. It’s always a good idea to taste things before giving them to baby that way if they don’t like it you’ll possibly know why. She loves the taste and pretty much chugs the entire thing down. If you haven’t ever tasted breast milk, it is sweet too, which is why they like sweet things. This Members Mark Advantage Infant Formula is a familiar taste.

It doesn’t have any funky odors, nor do I notice anything different with her bowel movements which is good. Means she’s doing just fine after switching to Members Mark Advantage Infant Formula.

I also like that Member’s Mark Advantage 1 Infant Formula is clinically proven to support growth and development with it’s unique blend of DHA, Lutein, and Vitamin E. Advantage 1 is designed to be more like breast milk and provides complete nutrition for baby’s first year.

Club members save around $500 when buying Members Infant Formula products compared to Similac and Enfamil. Remember this is just an estimate, but a pretty good estimate that is worth considering.


Go check out the formula finder to determine which formula is right for your baby and be sure to try out the savings calculator as well so you can see how much you can save with Members Infant Formula today!
