Darlin’ Deals Review ~ Hapimomi App!

Hapi Momi Image

Disclaimer: I was asked to write an honest review of the Hapimomi app in exchange for monetary compensation. I was not persuaded to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

If you know me personally you know that I am the Queen of Organization! I feel most at peace when things are neat and tidy and my ‘To Do’ list is completed. Of course having kids makes those things harder to manage, I rarely find the time to write a ‘To Do’ list, let alone actually remember to do the things on that list. I’ve tried many things to get my organized life back in order – calendars on every wall, post it notes on the counter, and writing reminders on my phone’s alarm setting. While all those things sound like they would be wonderful ways to remind oneself of important events I found that wall calendars don’t fit in my purse so they don’t help me when I’m on-the-go, post it notes usually wind up wrinkled and smashed under a baby toy at the bottom of my bag, and my phone alarms are so un-organized that I can’t tell what I am supposed to do next when I look at the endless list of alarm reminders that I’ve scheduled.

Alas I was beginning to feel like nothing could help keep my chaotic life on track… until I received an email about an App called Hapimomi!

To briefly explain Hapimomi, I would summarize it as a virtual organization tool with the capability to maintain your daily household schedule and routines all in one place. This app has a multitude of functions all easily accessible from the Home Screen. The categories are: Wall, To Do List, Diary, Contacts, Calendar, Shopping List. Among those functions my favorite is the Shopping List. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to the store and aimlessly wandered around hoping that the item that I came to the store for would just pop out at me from the shelf 😉 The Shopping List also has a great feature of being able to mark off what you picked up so that duplicate items aren’t purchased if your Spouse decides to be a sweet heart and stop by the grocery store on his/her way home from work.

Hapi Momi Features

One of my favorite features of the Hapimomi app is that it offers a way to sync up with other family members that you can add to your account. My husband and I frequently joke at the end of a long day when the kids are finally asleep that we haven’t spoken to each other all day, now with the Hapimomi app we are at least able to communicate what is going on in our household and what upcoming activities are planned.  With the option to have ‘push notifications’ on this app, reminders will pop up in case you haven’t had the time to check your Hapimomi app, which has proven to be beneficial for reminding my husband of things on the calendar section.

It is so exciting to finally have an organized way to stay organized, this app sure makes this Mommy a Hapimomi! 😉

I highly recommend getting this app and with its low cost of just $1.99, to cover the cost of removing annoying ads that some free apps contain, you will be sure to get your money’s worth compared to the high cost of other organization methods.

Darlin’ Deals Review ~ Baby Trend Nursery Center Playard!

Baby Trend Playpen

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary Baby Trend Nursery Center to review. I was not persuaded to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

When preparing for baby’s arrival there are so many things to purchase and deciding which products to buy can seem daunting. One of the things I learned with my first child was that some baby products are used more often then others and surprisingly one of the things that I got the most use out of was the playard. We took a playard on trips to visit Grandma and on every vacation we went on during my son’s crib years. Of course with baby #2 arriving 5 years later I was in desperate need of a new playard for her since I sold the one that I had for my son when he was a baby. Luckily Baby Trend was generous enough to send me a Baby Trend Nursery Center Playard in exchange for my honest review.

Upon receiving it I set up the Nursery Center with the Bassinet/Changing Table option and was pleased with the height of the bassinet inside the playard, it made placing my daughter in the playard convenient. The Bassinet felt secure and I was completely comfortable with allowing my daughter to nap in it during her early months before reaching the recommended maximum weight of 15lbs. Now that my daughter has recently surpassed that weight I look forward to testing out the playard using the base portion for her sleeping area on our upcoming vacation.

One of my favorite features of the Nursery Center was the Electronic Music Center. This console has a music, vibration, and night-light option. My daughter loves music and I frequently use music to soothe her when she is fussy so having this console attached to the playard was very handy! The nature sounds were very relaxing and she seemed to enjoy it when I played it for her.

Another feature that is included on the Nursery Center is the Toy Storage Pocket that I actually used to store diapers and burp cloths for convenience during those late night diaper changes.

The Nursery Center that I received was the Close N’ Cozy model that includes a removable bassinet. This additional feature is a major bonus if you will be using a playard early on with your little one, however I received the Nursery Center after my daughter had outgrown the recommended weight of 10 lbs. so I was unable to utilize that part. Some of the perks of the Close N’ Cozy bassinet (as described on Baby Trend’s website) are that it can be used with playard and securely fastens to any bed. It is also portable and freestanding.

Here are some additional features of the Nursery Center:


  • Removable full bassinet
  • One-hand locking mechanism
  • Large wheels with brakes
  • Toy/storage pocket
  • Travel/storage tote bag
  • Electronic music center with volume control, nightlight, and vibration
  • Music center includes two styles of music, and nature sounds.


Playard: 42″W x 27″L x 31.5″H


Playard: 25 lbs
Close N Cozy: 10 lbs

Recommended Use

Playard: Birth ~ 30 lbs or 35″
Bassinet/Changing Table: Birth ~ 4 m, weight: up to 15 lbs, height: up to 25″ whichever comes first.

The Delirious Ramblings of a Sleep Deprived Mommy of 2!

Over the years I have shared tid bits about my personal life with you Darlins mainly on my Facebook Page by sharing exciting milestones and photos of my 2 beautiful children. However, this will not be the warm fuzzy “Being a Mommy is the best job in the World” kind of post.

Advanced Warning: This is a Sleep-Deprived Mommy venting post and yes it will be whiny and long.

Please don’t misconstrue what I am about to say to mean that I don’t love being a mom, but OMG it is so exhausting especially when your husband is a Manager and required to travel out of town for work. Yes I realize I am not the only mother with multiple children and not the only zombie-fied mommy that tries to function on a few non-consecutive hours of sleep and not the only mom who has a husband that travels (I don’t know how you single moms do it!) but what I wouldn’t give for an entire week of sleeping 8 hours straight. You heard that right I would like a WHOLE WEEK of peaceful uninterrupted sleep.

I also miss my husband, not only because he’s out of town but ALL THE TIME but because I feel like right now we are just roommates responsible for raising 2 little human beings and we don’t even know each other or have time to speak to each other and when we do speak its usually interrupted by a talkative (and adorable) 4 year old or a crying (and precious) baby.

Oh and teething is the absolute worst thing in the world.. it turned my amazingly wonderful sleeping baby girl into the child that wakes every hour throughout the night. After 2 years of no sleep with my first child I thought I finally was catching a break with a baby that slept 5-6 hour stretches through the night, but that is gone for now and of course it starts at the worst time when Tony is out of town on his 2nd business trip since the baby was born.

I know from experience that this is temporary and I will sleep again.. but now in this moment when I am functioning on 3 hours of sleep and dealing with 2 children 24/7 by myself for the second time this month I can think of nothing more peaceful than a 36 hour nap and absolute silence.
THE END of my melodramatic ranting delirious post 😉

 The Nest Fragrances Sicilian Tangerine Classic Candle and Sicilian Tangerine Reed Diffuser are awesome. I had never used them before until I had won them in a contest. I have always enjoyed having candles around the house.

The Diffuser is made with an alcohol-free formula which releases fragrance slowly and evenly into the air for approximately 90 days. These candles and diffusers are high quality and well worth the purchase price..
