There are some great books that can help you celebrate Dad with your kids. In anticipation of Father’s Day I will be sharing some favorites with you. My Dad Thinks He’s Funny is a great book about a son who shares all the things his dad says and does when his dad thinks he’s funny. Even my preschooler who is quite the jokester himself snickered as we read this, he understood all the little play on words throughout the book. This book is a great tribute to all the funny, corny, silly dads out there and the kids that love them!
When his son says “I’m hungry,” Dad says, “Hello, Hungry. Pleased to meet you.” Before slicing a cake for dessert, Dad announces, “There’s my piece. What’s everybody else having?” Tell Dad your foot hurts? “No problem. You’ve got another.” How is he feeling? “With my hands.” So when nothing’s up but the sky, or when jumping in the shower sounds dangerous, it may be a good time to share this book with someone who doesn’t need sugar because, well, they’re sweet enough already.
Do you want something for your baby’s room that celebrates them and your family? Something that will remain a treasured keepsake of their unique arrival into your family? Maybe you are searching for a truly special gift for a grandchild, Godchild, niece or nephew. If you are, you will really want to pay close attention because Buzzworthy Baby has personalized, unique art for Buzzworthy babies.
Buzzworthy Baby offers stylish, unique and highly personalized wall art for newborns. Their line of custom framed wall art and canvas art will be a beautiful addition to their room.
It is so easy to order your special Buzzworthy Baby art, you simply choose the style, color options and then go through the form adding the personal details that will be painted on the piece. I was very lucky to be able to recieve a wall canvas and a framed art piece. They are both absolutely precious and so special. The pieces celebrate the child’s date of birth, birth weight, delivering doctor, siblings, pets and more.
I have to say that the framed print was impossible to get a photo of, the glare was so distracting, no matter what I tried, I could not eliminate it. The pictures do not do the piece justice and I had to try and crop and show you parts of it but still it does not look anything like the beautiful piece it is. I may try again and see if I can get some better pictures and update.

“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Dunkin’ Donuts. I received a Dunkin’ Donuts Party Kit to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”
Coffee, Sweet Treats, Friends, Family and Conversation; what’s not to like? I had a wonderful opportunity to review some of Dunkin’ Donuts new Flavors of the Season coffees with a party of family and friends recently, and there were even goodie bags for the guests! A reusable large Dunkin’ Donuts tote, one pound of one of the new Flavors of the Season coffees, a large drink container perfect for ice coffee,ice coffee recipe and coupons would go home with every guest! We love Dunkin’ Donuts and know how great their coffee is, so we were thrilled to be picked to host this and try the new limited edition flavors.
I brewed up some of the coconut, strawberry shortcake and triple berry flavored coffees Some like it hot and some like it cold, so we made some of each and everyone could customize with cream and sugar and of course some delicious treats to dunk and eat to compliment the delicious beverages. We all thought the new flavors lend themselves perfectly to refreshing ice coffees but we also think they tasted great as a traditional hot beverage as well. It just seems like these flavors are a hit either way and makes us a little sad they are only around for a limited time. They did not taste perfumey or artificial but the flavor was genuine and rich without being overpowering. I think my favorite was the strawberry shortcake but the coconut was a close second. The triple berry is great for ice coffee as it makes a perfect berry cooler type drink that is super satisfying and refreshing on a hot day!
Our guests loved the coffee, we did a Mother’s Day Coffee Break Theme and everyone agreed the new flavors are really great and is sad they are only available for a limited time. Favorite flavors were tough because everyone had different tastes but Strawberry Shortcake was a hit with the guests as well as it was with me. The ice coffee is absolutely delicious and was a huge guest favorite and it was not even a hot day when we did this, in fact we had a bit of a cold snap.
If you are wanting to try the new flavors, they are available now so hurry because they are only here for a limited time!!! So head out to your grocery store and pick up some Dunkin’ Donuts Triple Berry, Strawberry Shortcake and Coconut Flavored Coffee today!!! You will be so glad you did!!!
I have something really cool to tell you all about. There’s this great service called IndieFlix that was founded by filmmakers who were inspired by independent filmmakers and their work. They took that inspiration and created a platform for us to get our Indie Fix. Now we can view thousands of films that are created by some of the most brilliant and creative minds out there. IndieFlix is a subscription service that lets subscribers enjoy all the films they want for mere pennies a day! Best of all through their unique revenue-sharing Royalty Pool Minutes (RPM) model, filmmakers get paid for every minute watched by an IndieFlix subscriber. The more you watch, the more money they make. And more money = more movies.
It is so easy to find whatever you’re in the mood to watch because you can browse by genre, rating, length, festival or country. I watched two great short films today. The House I Keep which was 11 minutes long and was about a woman coming to terms and dealing with the grief of her miscarriage. The trailer for The House I Keep is below.
The other was, Weathered and was 19 minutes long about a young woman who is longing for human connection and gets it the only way she knows how…by making doctor’s appointments. You can also rate the films and leave a comment. You can watch right on your computer or have them stream through a Roku or Xbox. I think it’s a great idea and a wonderful way for independent filmmakers to get a much wider audience to see their films.
Now for the really fabulous news! IndieFlix is sponsoring a giveaway on Mommy Ramblings. 10, that’s right 10 lucky blog readers are going to win a 2 month subscription to IndieFlix! Thank you IndieFlix for my review subscription and for providing this awesome giveaway on Mommy Ramblings!!!

Announcing the birth of a new baby is always a momentous event, even though friends and family know you are expecting, picking out that perfect announcement can be daunting. With so many choices it can be hard to decide just what you want.
I remember struggling to find the perfect announcements with each child. I think your first is easier because you have no other children, but after the first, you want your whole family especially little siblings represented in the announcement. It’s all so worth it when you find the perfect announcement that celebrates the birth of your new child in a style and format that matches your family. It’s so nice to be able to personalize announcements with photos of your new little bundle of joy and being the photo mom I am, that’s a must for me.
A great place to find unique baby shower and birth announcements is at Tiny Prints. Seriously, with Tiny Print’s enormous selection of trend-forward designs you are sure to find the perfect way to celebrate your joy with designs as special as your baby. Tiny Prints offers matching address labels, thank you cards and gift labels to tie it all together in a matching theme.
