These Love Birds Got Hitched!

It's done. I'm married, guys! I want to lead by telling you how disastrous the wedding was, but it was kind of magical at the same time. Long story short it rained on the afternoon of my modest backyard shindig. In fact, the rain began as we were saying our vows giving us only an hour to enjoy all the pretty decorations before having to move what we could inside (and that was only thanks to a lovely neighbor offering up his canopy for guests). It was cramped inside my father's home, to say the least, but we managed to ride out the storm among friends and family. We only scared off a few people with our shoulder-to-shoulder shenanigans and … [Read more...]

Oh snap! Have you tried Harvest Snaps?

I love finding new things to change up my eating habits to fit a healthier lifestyle. I'm not too crazy about salads or working out just yet, but little changes here and there make me feel better about myself. I can tell a difference since we started being more health conscience back in September. Although we do still indulge, it's snacks like Harvest Snaps that make the transition worth it. I received a bunch of these amazing snap pea and lentil snacks as part of a blogging program. We busted open the original flavor first (not pictured) and were instantly intrigued. Though the original didn't really tickle our fancy, the toddler munched … [Read more...]

The Cure for Fancy Frocks! {Bandelettes Review}

Once upon a time I wore dresses. I've always been partial to pants because I feel like they're on the functional side of daily attire. But a nice frock always gets me excited. I will find a dress I like and horde it. Even if I only wear it to bake Christmas cookies, I will keep it in my closet for years because a fancy frock will make me feel beautiful and womanly in ways none of my pant outfits can. And that, my friends, is worth every inch of space wasted. If you know me personally, or at least well enough to be on my social media channels, you'll maybe have caught that I am at my biggest now than I ever have been thus far in my life. It's … [Read more...]

Simplifying No Poo with Mirasol Farm

Guys, I have a confession: I was sick of the natural beauty routine that made my hair feel both dry and waxy at different intervals between showers. I could tweak forever and play with different methods, but I just want to live an easy life free of chemicals in which my hair still looks fabulous. In a moment of desperation I reached out to Mirasol Farm and begged them to send me more of their fabulous herbal shampoo bar. It seriously does wonders. The herbal shampoo bar from Mirasol Farm is top notch. No matter where I've bathed, no matter the water source... My hair always comes out looking and feeling fabulous. It's important for me to … [Read more...]

BeGreen T Review and Kickstarter Initiative

When it comes to being a green mom, there's only one thing I love that's even close to babywearing... And that, my friends, is cloth diapers. Cloth diapers are so easy, guilt free, not to mention they make baby bums look totally cute! When I was offered a chance to review the new line of tee shirts from BeGreen T, well this one was calling my name for sure! These tees are very soft and comfortable. They launder well (I've washed mine twice already). I was surprised because the logos are literally part of the shirt. They aren't painted on with cheap paint, so you don't have to worry about them peeling off from wear. The whole thing is super … [Read more...]

Adding Fun to Our Bathtime Routine with Daddy & Company

This three-day weekend was a real doozy for us. The heat down in Florida makes living in the outside world hard, even for us natives! It's a guarentee that if we do decide to venture out into the world everyone is going to come home slightly frustrated and hella stinky. The only cure is a cool shower and a nap. The kids love bubble baths, but as we get more conscious of our choices in the home bath time has suffered a little. I can't tell you how long it's been since I gave up looking for a reliable bubble bath that was long-lasting, smelled good, and also non-toxic for my little one. I thought that bubble baths were just out for us. With … [Read more...]

A year of amazing loot and year two for Loot Crate!

Here it is... Loot Crate number 12.  I have received 12 fabulous crates and they just get better and better for me! Last year I got my very first crate in July of 2013. They continued piling up. I had to stash my Loot Crate items around and distribute them throughout my house. I even re-purposed several rates last Christmas as gift boxes. Now I have a slightly smaller stack of crates... My 12th crate was oddly shaped. All of my crates were stubby like the ones on the left in the photo above. Then the LAUNCH crate was more of a cube. After that they were flatter looking, never as alluring as the original. Then last month this weird looking … [Read more...]

Cleaning Cloth Diapers with Spray Pal

I'm not going to lie; Cleaning cloth diapers can be messy. It's not hard, but it is gross. Breastfed poops aren't an issue because you just throw it in the wash and they come out clean. Once you get into solid feeding, however, you get these nasty peanut butter poops that are sticky and icky. Then you have to add a pre-wash to get all the filth off... but it's really getting the semi-solids off your precious cloth that can be difficult. That's where Spray Pal comes in handy. Before Spray Pal my routine was to stash the dirty diapers away until the end of the day. And then I had to spray the diapers down, all the while splashing on the rim … [Read more...]

One Happy Toddler! {Happy Family Brands Review & Giveaway}

I have a very happy baby. If you don't already know there are a few things you can do to keep your growing toddler happy. Make sure he gets lots of sleep, play with him, and let him have access to food that will satisfy his appetite. And as those babies grow and learn to do all kinds of physical activities, they'll need more food to keep up with the energy demands. We look to Happy Family Brands to keep our little guy satisfied while constantly on the go! Happy Baby snacks have been a staple to fill the spaces between meals for quite some time now. As Anders grows teeth and develops his mastication skills, we've transitioned into full … [Read more...]
