I love that the kids have so many fun … [Read more...]

Quality, Fashionable Clothing That’s Sustainable

When I was younger, my closet was always bursting at the seams with the latest and greatest fashionable clothing. As I become older, I realize I don't need all that clothing. What I want now are fewer pieces of clothing that interchange well with other pieces I already own. Quality clothing. The cheap trendy clothing I was wasting my money on, didn't last much longer than the trend anyways. I … [Read more...]

Refresh & Refuel with Capri Sun Sport and Planter’s P3 Protein Snack

“Kraft-Heinz sponsored this post, but the opinions are my own.” My boys like to stay busy. Being bored just doesn't seem to be an option for them. Running to the playground, jumping on the trampoline, or taking off to go fishing at the pond is an everyday thing around here. I love that they always want to be doing something and that they always want to be doing something together, but … [Read more...]

Of course, I grabbed a couple of boxes so I could hold up my best.mom.ever. title at home. Ingredients for … [Read more...]

This post is sponsored by Pampers. All thoughts and opinions about Pampers Rewards are my own. As parents, we have a lot of choices to make when we have a child. There are so many things they need and sometimes too many options to pick from. As a mom, I count on the opinions of other moms to help me weed my way through them all. One of my biggest recommendations to other parents is my love for … [Read more...]

Experienced Parent. What I Wish I Knew The First Time.

I participated in this sponsored campaign for Mirum Shopper. All opinions stated are my own. When I found out I was pregnant with Sawyer, I was excited to finally have an experience that I wasn't so scared of. I had already ridden this rodeo and, to the best of my ability, done well; not just once but twice already. I was the experienced parent this time around. I knew at this point that I could … [Read more...]
