Minneapolis Based Driven Coffee:: My New Reason to Wake Up!

A morning person, I am not. However, my recent discovery of Driven Coffee has perked me up and given me encouragement in getting out of bed in the morning. Let me set the scene – I have three young children at my house. They wake up looooooong before I’d like to, so when my feet hit the ground there’s no turning back. There is no gradual release from my slumber to my day. It is a full throttle, guns a barreling, take-no-prisoners mentality to the day. How Do I Take My Coffee? I can’t claim to be a coffee connoisseur. I...

Review:: Bazzle Baby Bibs and More

I recently crossed paths with Bazzle Baby and lets just say my uterus immediately ached for another babe. Seriously. One look at all of the products that exist on the Bazzle Baby website and I yearned to have a reason to buy it. All of it.  The brains behind the shop are 3 moms who wanted to offer fashionable yet functional gear and accessories. And bonus: Their products are machine washable and I can’t say enough about the high quality of material used. They were also the original designers of the first bandana bib over 10 years ago. Raise your hand if you...

Shoot Along Photography Class:: Week 2

My second week of my photography short course was a fun one! This week, we focused on composition, which gave me an opportunity to try shooting with rule or thirds, leading lines and symmetry in mind. I really took advantage of our online community this week and relished in the many ideas and photograph ideas that were posted in our private FB group. That, in addition to comments from our two instructors, and I can easily say I learned a lot. My hands-on practice – and the results I’m seeing – continues to give me the confidence that I need to keep going!...

Review:: Post Pal Club

At our house, we love to take it old school and write actual letters. You know, the kind that requires a stamp and a short walk to the mailbox, followed by participation from the US Postal Service and appropriate wait time for a response. Ah, the nostalgia of wait time and pencil-and-paper writing in this fast paced world set by technology. It’s refreshing, to say the least. When I first heard about the Post Pal Club, I was excited about the simplicity of personalized pre-stamped post cards that came ready for my children to write and send! When I saw the cute designs...

Book:: Choose Healthy Live Happy

I had the honor of reviewing a fellow mom’s newly published book – Choose Healthy Live Happy: Take Your Family From Sick and Surviving to Healthy and Thriving – and I couldn’t put it down. For those of you who know my Mojitos & Munchkins family personally, you know that “Sick and surviving” is the perfect way to describe our clan over the past several years. We came to accept it for what it was and used the excuses of “we have young kids in daycare, so…..” and “everyone else is sick too, it’s just the season,” before we realized...

Mojitos & Munchkins recently had the opportunity to review a fabulous new product on the market, and are happy to share it with our readers!

Review:: Cozy Phones

Hey mamas, raise your hand if any of this sounds familiar…. Your toddler wants to wear headphones but none are the right size. The headsets are too big and the speakers are HUGE on their tiny heads. Because of the size disparity, the entire airplane can hear the Frozen soundtrack, but your child is too irritated that they keep sliding off that she JUST. CAN’T. HEAR. ANYTHING. Now your fellow passengers have screams and toddler rants on top of Elsa trying to Let It Go. Well, get ready to have your MINDS BLOWN. I know mine was. I have no idea how...

Review:: Pad Of Planes by Yelling Yak

What do fun paper designs + unique airplane folding instructions + a 7-year old boy have in common?? If you guessed that all point to a REALLY FUN night of FAMILY EXCITEMENT and building the COOLEST PAPER AIRPLANES YOU’LL EVER SEE, then you are absolutely correct! We recently received Pad of Planes from Yelling Yak and cannot say enough GOOD about it. From initially opening the pad of papers, it was obvious to see that the designs were BRIGHT and COLORFUL and would be exciting for a kid of any age. Upon further examination, I was overly joyed {as a parent} to find that the...

Children’s Book Review:: “The Magic Of My Name”

In a market where there are countless children’s books to choose from, there are certain features that set some apart from others. Personalization is one of those items. Any time you can personalize a book to make a child feel like the author had them (and only them) in mind, you are guaranteed to get smiles and extra nighttime snuggles. That is exactly what I got from my son after he received The Magic Of My Name. Created by The Story Tailors, who believed in the right for all children to experience magic, this book tells the tale of how a child got...
