It’s Party Time with Paw Patrol, PercyVites and Toysrus! #AD

I feel like I am forever getting invites either mailed to me or put into my kids mail bags. If you want to know the honest truth, I often loose them before even getting a chance to RSVP. I know bad mom, but what can you do! I have started to put them on the fridge, but the other day I was gloriously invited to a party ONLINE! Of course I never responded right away, but then a couple days later I got an email following up from the online company, AMAZING! This was a game changer for me  ...
