I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Carter’s. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip and to thank me for participating.

Since before even my own children were born, Carter’s has been one of my favorite brands of clothing for babies and children. Besides being made of quality material, they have the most adorable styles – from classic to practical to trendy.

Carter’s clothing is almost exclusively what I buy for baby showers when I want to add to baby’s wardrobe, and as Christmas is coming right up (just a few more days! *gulp*), Carter’s was the perfect place to accomplish my gift shopping for nieces and nephews! (I’m getting quite a pile of the little munchkins.)

I usually get to a Carter’s store only once a year or so, (usually on our annual Girl’s Getaway at the beach outlet mall), but every time I’m there, I find myself wishing I could stop by every season! Check out the Carter’s website to see this season’s new styles!


With my 25% off coupon for the Carter’s Friends & Family Event, I was able to take care of all the nieces and nephews left on my list plus get matching coats and matching outfits for my own girls! There were amazing sales going on at our Carter’s store…almost everything was at least 50% off already, and by stacking this coupon on top of that, I actually saved more than I spent! Woot!

On a busy and hectic shopping day during these last days before Christmas, I was very impressed by the patience and helpfulness of the store employees. I had all three of my tired little people (4 years old and under,) with me, and we’ll just say they weren’t exactly the quiet little angels they usually are. *ahem*
I was so relieved to see that I could bring my big fat double jogging stroller in and easily maneuver it through the aisles, (although a few toy monkeys occupied that stroller most of the time we were in there, not my children.)


Print the coupon below and take it in with you to the store to enjoy extra savings on some already incredible prices!

Finish up that Christmas shopping list!

Caza Trail Single Serve Donut Shop

My husband is one of those workaholic who-needs-sleep types, always staying up late and getting up early, and a good cup of coffee really helps him get going during some of those especially busy weeks. Now with our Keurig, it’s easier than ever for him to grab a quick, hot pick-me-up in the mornings on his way out with the Caza Trail single serve Donut Shop blend.

We have overnight company at the moment and we decided to all do a blind taste test between the Donut Shop blend and our ol’ standby of bulk WinCo coffee from the French Press, and Caza Trail was the clear winner with it’s smooth, yet bold flavor!

You can find the Donut Shop blend and 24 other Caza Trail varieties (including teas and hot chocolate!) on their Amazon page. Some even have the “subscribe & save” option!
