Hatchimals Were The Hot Gift This Year~ Enter To Win One!

My blogger friend, Shopping Kim, is giving away a Hatchimals set to one lucky winner!
Hatchimals were the "hottest new toy" this past holiday season and are still hard to come by. Just as the name implies, Hatchimals start out in an egg and must hatch their way out. The hatching process takes up to 40 minutes of shaking and petting for the animal to peck its ways out of its shell.

It's always fun to see what the hot toy of the season will be and it appears that Hatchimals were the winner for 2016! In case you missed the opportunity to purchase one, you now have the opportunity to win one.

Enter to win this Hatchimals set now!

US residents only. Giveaway ends 1/31/16. Winner be contacted via email on or after 2/1/17 for their mailing address. A new winner may be chosen if the winner fails to reply within 72 hours of being notified. All In An Iowa Mom's Day is not responsible for prize delivery. Once a winner is drawn and confirmed, the name will be announced on the GiveawayTools widget.

Moving Forward In 2017- It's Easier Than You Think

Many people are complaining that 2016 has been the worst year of their lives. I can tell you that I have had some trials throughout 2016, yet it's been a great year. I truly believe that a lot of of how one feels about a closing year is all in the mindset. The fact that I woke up each day to begin a new day, means 2016 was a good year.

I've observed a lot through social media the past week and it's clear that many families of today simply do not know where or how to find "fun" in their lives. There is no magic pill for fun. Only you can bring happiness to your family and it's really not that hard. Here are some ideas on what you can do to usher in a new found feeling of happiness in your household.


I am serious. Cook together as a family. Your kids will thank you at some point down the road.

Once they are on their own and they don't know how to cook a pot of spaghetti, you've got issues. Don't assume that someone else has shown your kids how to cook. Most likely, your kids will travel through the local Drive-Thru for meals on end. Eating out is expensive and it's also costly from a health perspective, as well.


Good old Monopoly works every time! What family doesn't like the memories that Boardwalk has to offer? When families play together, they do stay together.

This forces everyone in your household to talk to each other and make fun memories. I remember playing the card game ROOK as a child. My great aunts, grandmothers and other relatives would all jump in and play with my siblings and I. Those are some very fond memories. Simple, yet fun!


We have been married almost 30 years and have a dog in the house from the start. At some point, our boys insisted we invest in a hamster. Well, let me tell you this. The many hamsters we had through the years provided hours of fun, which included wondering where the hamster escaped to; as well as what new toys the hamster would like. They are easy to care for and they do teach your kids about the responsibilities that it takes to own a pet. Fast forward to Christmas 2016, our hamsters brought many smiles and laughter as our boys remembered those days.

As you can see, it's not about the almighty dollar that you invest. It's about the time and things that you can teach your kids. Make 2017 a good year. In the grand scheme of things, it's your family that matters. It's not the politics, it's not about how much money you have, as it's all about the time that you can give each other. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

Hot Smartphone Accessories That Everyone Wants To Own

Disclosure: As part of U.S. Cellular's Blogger Brigade Program, I did receive compensation for this post. The opinions here are mine and nobody else's. I have been a U.S. Cellular customer for 20+ years. In fact, I have never been with another cell phone company.

OK~ Mobile accessories are changing how we live our lives. We worry about keeping our families safe online, which is easier to do with things such as the parent/child agreement offered through U.S. Cellular. Life seems faster paced than ever before, yet in all reality; it can be simple when we embrace the technology that is all right at our fingertips.

I happen to travel a lot and I find myself using my Samsung Galaxy S7 to entertain myself and keep me connected.

In fact, a recent U.S. Cellular survey indicated that 94 percent of smart phone users use their devices for entertainment. So, you can see- I am not alone! Another interesting fact is that 49 percent of users utilized smart home technology or connected home devices. When you know how to use these accessories, life can be simpler.

The holidays are here and I would encourage you to swing into your local U.S. Cellular store and check out all of the accessories that are available. There is something for everyone. From wireless accessories to cases and chargers and accessories that can even fly, you will find something you would enjoy. These new accessories have created entertainment and organizational hubs.

In case you need a little insight into the new accessories for the season, here you go.

Parrot Mini-Drone Rolling Spider

This drone flies smooth in all directions and is easy to pilot touch controls through the FreeFlight 3 app on an iPhone 7. I saw one of these in action in a soybean field this fall and it was really amazing to watch.

UE Roll 2 Bluetooth Speaker

This bluetooth speaker can withstand water for up to 30 minutes and pumps out a crisp sound with deep bass in every direction. Youngsters can plug into their favorite games and tunes with a Despicable Me Minion Bluetooth Speaker or Frozen Cool Tunes Headphone.

If home security is a concern, how about a Nest Cam?

A Nest Cam provides home security, while a Nest Learning Thermostat programs itself and automatically saves energy when you are away. It can also be controlled with any smartphone or tablet.

If you have that hard to buy for person on your list this holiday season, I can guarantee you that they would love any of these awesome accessories offered by U.S. Cellular. Life can be simple and fun, let's make it that way! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
