Hello Houston! Media Pedal Party Review & Giveaway!

***Disclosure-Thanks to Pedal Party and Little Soya for sponsoring our 1st meet up for the Hello Houston Media Bloggers and Blog Free - Houston and Beyond. Any opinions stated are my own.

This past Sunday I had the opportunity to meet an awesome group of Local Bloggers and their spouses. Thanks to Little Soya and Pedal Party for sponsoring the first Meet up of Hello Houston! Media.

We had an awesome time at our very own Pedal Party! Have you ever heard or seeing a Pedal Party Bike?
 It was my first time hearing and seen this man powered party bike. Each bike can hold up to 16 party goers, 15 seated and one standing in the middle as "your bartender". Physically it's about the size of a cargo van and travels at an average speed of between 5 and 8 miles per hour.
Meet our "Bartender", my SIL, Alba from Independent Mami. The Pedal Party is BYOB you may bring any canned alcohol beverage aboard. Our bartender kept everyone well hydrated while we pedaled away through Midtown.
Meet our captains, Stephanie & Nate. We start the party by meeting them, going over the rules and signing waivers. They gave us a few intructions and how and when to pedal. As you can see above they are two characters. They kept the music going and the party moving forward.

Check out Nate's shirt... "My PP is bigger than yours." Party and fun all around! He was a great captain had us laughing, dancing and pedaling.
 Here is the group on the Dorothy Nell, that was the name of our bike. Fellow Bloggers on board Joanna from Madame Mariposa, Maria from MomandChild1215, Lacey from Charm and Sass, Alba from Independent Mami and Kristin from Surf and Sunshine
We stopped at 3 bars in Midtown Christian's Tailgate, Porch Swing Pub, and Liberty Station. When you are setting up your rental they will give you the options of what spots you can visit.
The Pedal Party is rented on an hourly basis like any other party bus or other special event rental vehicles; How the rental time is spent is up to the renter. Generally the Pedal Party is used as a safe, fun way to do a pub crawl/bar crawl or progressive dinner, but does not, necessarily, require stopping during the rental period. People often rent the Pedal Party for events such as Bachelor Parties, Bachelorette Parties, Team Building events, corporate events, Birthday Parties, company parties, tailgating, cyclist group events, parades, conventions and more. 
Tips for attending a Pedal Party:
  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothes. Flats, sneakers, shorts, tank tops. Avoid such things as sandals and black clothes if it's summer time.
  • If you're short like me(5'1) make sure you pick an adjustable seat. There are 2 adjustable seats on each side of the bike.
  • Leave all valuables at home or in your car.
  • Do not leave your cell phone on the bar/table top. It is very slippery and it can fly off the bike specially if the bike is turning.
  • Use the ladies/gentlemen room at your stops, as you can see there is no RR on the PP Bike.  

To plan your own party you can find Pedal Party online at You can call also call for more information to 832-429-6977.

Would you like to win your own Pedal Party? All of the Hello Houston! Media Bloggers who attended this event are joining together to give away a 2 hour Pedal Party and a Little Soya Prize Pack!

Baby Alive Baby's Yummy Treat Doll Review

~Disclosure: No compensation was received for this post. The product mentioned below was received to facilitate our review. I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on the products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own.

Your little girl will love using her big imagination with this Yummy Treat Baby doll. She can throw an ice cream party and invite all her favorite dolls! She'll delight in helping baby really lick her ice cream cone. All she has to do is hold the ice cream to this adorable Baby Alive doll's mouth. She can also pretend to feed her the included cookie.

We had the opportunity to review this adorable Baby Alive Yummy Treat Baby Brunette Doll and my niece loved! Like me this Baby Alive Doll has a sweet tooth. Your little one will enjoy countless hours of fun feeding her yummy treats. All they have to do is hold the cookie of ice cream cone close to her mouth and the doll will lick it or she can pretend to feed her the cookie that's included in the box.

Baby Alive Dolls make playtime fun, interactive and educational. Hasbro has created several models of Baby Alive Dolls, your little can help their baby learn how to walk, feed them their first ice cream cone or cookie or help them brush their teeth. We loved the Baby Alive Baby's Yummy Treat Doll.

I highly recommend Baby Alive Dolls it will make the perfect birthday gift for a little girl.

March 6, 2012 marks the happiest day of my life. The day I was blessed with my bundle of joy Isaiah, my first born; it also marked the day that a lot of fears hit me.  As a first time mother I couldn’t help but wonder if I was making the best decisions for my son.  All my doubts started the day I found out IT WAS A BOY! We had to get everything ready and secure for our baby boy. Luckily for us there is that awesome Baby Superstore called Babies R Us, it was like a one stop shop for babies. The day that I made my gift registry for my baby shower I got lost in there for hours. I couldn’t pick a theme for the nursery, did not know what bottles he would like or what brand of diapers to use. To my surprise there was only one brand he could use, Huggies. My husband had a diaper shower and he was given several brands, we opened a bag of a particular brand and he broke out a rash in his groin area. We went to the doctor and were told to not to use diapers or wipes of that brand, so on to the next one. Soon enough we learned that Huggies was the ONLY brand of diapers and wipes he could use and will not have an allergic reaction.
It was reassuring to know that Huggies was a brand that I could trust and would keep my baby snug and fit and allergy free!  
Huggies® Snug & Dry Diapers offer long-lasting protection you can count on, so you can focus on all your little one’s daily adventures. Plus, they come with new SureFit* Design added leakage protection.

● Only Huggies® Snug & Dry Diapers have New SureFit* Design for up to 12 hours of leakage protection. 
● SnugFit* Waistband for All-Around Fit.

● Now closer-to-body fit to move with baby’s twists and turns.

● Now softer outer cover to keep our little one's comfy at all times.

Do you have a funny or memorable diaper adventure or story to tell? You can do so below for a chance to win a $50 Babies R Us Gift Card." rel="nofollow">a Rafflecopter giveaway

Giveaway ends 06/25/2013 and winner will have 24 hours to claim the prize. Please leave your email address when you leave your blog post comment. Thanks and good luck!
