Have you ever noticed how much bigger your house feels after you take down the Christmas tree? I always feel like I have so much room and it inspires me to want to redecorate my space. Painting is a great option but it can be a lot of work. You have to get so much equipment out to be able to get the edges and the drop cloth so you don’t mess up the carpet.

Have you ever thought about adding vinyl decals to your walls? They are very easy to apply and they can really change up the look of any room! EvgieNev Wall decals has a ton of amazing things you can add to your wall. These vinyl wall decals are for any room! You can add some personality to your living room or kitchen or get the nursery ready with a beautiful scene from the forest, ocean, or space.

Here are a few of my favorite wall decals from Evgie:

Minecraft has been quite the rage for a few years now.  There is the game that I think most parents are familiar with.  There is even a Minecraft convention that takes place.  But you have a great resource for cool Minecraft games and collectibles at your fingertips!

Your local Best Buy!

Who wouldn’t love these mini figures? And the display case is awesome as well! Fans can collect all the mini figures and keep them on display with the cool case.

Best Buy also carries neat ideas like a Minecraft card game.  For those who aren’t inclined to play the game online, a card game is a great way to connect with your kiddo and their love for all things Minecraft.

I think my favorite cool Minecraft game at Best Buy is their Motion Movie Set.  Fans can take this set and set up their own in home studio for taking stop-motion films with Minecraft! Such a fun idea!  Our kids LOVE stop-motion and I know they would go crazy over this!

Of course Best Buy carries all the cool Minecraft games.  You can get the Xbox One version, Xbox 360, Playstation 4 and more.  Just visit your local Best Buy or check out their Minecraft collection online.

You still have time to make sure your Minecraft fans will be happy this Christmas.  I would love to hear from you and learn what cool Minecraft items made it to your kids wish lists this year! Leave a comment and let me know!

RubyRoo Baby offers high-quality baby products on Amazon and rubyroobaby.com Founded in 2015 by a husband and wife team, RubyRoo Baby creates smart solutions for savvy parents. They take tremendous pride in selling a beautiful array of teething necklaces and sibling shirts. RubyRoo Baby recently expanded beyond their best-selling line of silicone teething necklaces to offer All About Me: A Little Book of Love and Adventure, and heirloom quality baby journal covering birth through age 5.

A company with a conscience, RubyRoo Baby donates 1% of profits to charity. Each year we support a charity dedicated to improving the lives of parents and babies: in 2016, they will donate 1% of profits to the March of Dimes, which funds lifesaving research and programs and works to end premature birth, birth defects, and infant mortality.

You may remember awhile back we offered a giveaway for one of their baby books, but now they are back with a fun bundle of joy giveaway bundle! Check out these cool prizes and win a bundle of joy for YOUR bundle of joy!

Available in Woodland and Floral themes, this new heirloom-quality baby memory book stands out not just for its 48-pages of beautiful designs covering birth through age 5, but for being the only baby book available to be inclusive of all families.

Finding that the design of most baby journals excluded many families, RubyRoo Baby wanted to create something that truly embraced the belief that love makes a family. Through carefully selected captions, text, and design, RubyRoo Baby created a baby journal that works not just for traditional families, but also for families who adopt, LGBTQ families, homebirth families, and single-parent families. All About Me: A Little Book of Love and Adventure is also the only baby book that includes both Christian and Jewish holidays, with a unique design that allows families to remove the holidays they do not celebrate.

This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs.  I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.

We’ve all been there before. Tired beyond belief, stressed to the max and one (or more) kids around us screaming, crying or just needing help or attention.  And yet, we push through it.  We shove the stress and sleepiness to the background and refill that sippy cup, nurse that baby, laugh with that teen or help that 5th grader finish her science project.  It’s not that parents feel like martyrs.  But we DO deserve some me time.  When parents need a time out where do they turn?

When parents need a time out #ad #WhatULuv

With so many stressed out parents, it is vital that we all find some me time.  Maybe it’s getting up even just 5 minutes early so you can grab a few sips of hot coffee.  Or splurging on a sitter for a date night out of the house.  Perhaps it is ordering that magazine subscription.  It can even be as simple as taking a few minutes to paint your toe nails some fantastic color! Another great idea? LUVS.

When parents need a time out #ad #WhatULuv

Luvs recently introduced Luvs Ultra Leakguard Diapers with NightLock Plus™.

When parents need a time out #ad #WhatULuv

These offer great overnight protection so if your little one is sleeping through the night, you can trust they are nice and dry and that they will not wake up screaming with wet pjs and sheets. PLUS, you can use this coupon and save $1 on any package of Luvs diapers.

Using your social media can be great when parents need a time out.  You can find funny memes and adorable videos like this one…..

I’d love to hear from you.  What are your tips for finding me time in your busy day to day routines?
