Family Vacations with Little Ones

blue-skies-on-christmas

We've been thinking a lot lately about going on a family vacation this summer. My husband is a teacher so he is off the entire summer. With me taking a maternity leave earlier in the year my time off is limited but we could take a long weekend and go somewhere. Not only is time off limited, but our funds are limited! I know it may be challenging to plan cheap family holidays with having two little ones but I think it could be a lot of fun … [Read more...]

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and GIVEAWAY

rubbermaid-logo

Since our "green" days began a few years back, a lot of changes have taken place in our home. One of those changes is recycling. We recycle many things in our kitchen (such as juice containers, pop and water bottles, cardboard boxes, plastic and glass containers) and we have had the problem of these things cluttering our counter top until they can later be taken into the basement to our recycle bin. We were recently given the opportunity to … [Read more...]

Annie’s Organic Pizza Review and Giveaway

Annies-logo-2012

Pizza is one of my absolute favorite things to eat. When I started being more conscious of ingredients and eating more organic I slowed down a lot on eating pizza. None of the ingredients in most store bought frozen pizzas or in pizzerias is organic. I personally prefer not to think about everything that could be on the pizzas like that.I had seen many organic items at my local Whole Foods, but I honesty never thought to check out frozen pizzas … [Read more...]

Zooper Tango Review and Baby Item Giveaway

Zooper

We have looked at double strollers for several months now. When I found out I was pregnant last year that was one of the only things we knew we would need to get since we had everything from when LA was born. Having two children under the age of two requires a double stroller in my opinion! There are a lot of double strollers on the market, but for an item that is going to be carrying your precious cargo, you need something that is of the utmost … [Read more...]

Dying Easter Eggs the Eco-Friendly Way

500x_2010-03-31_140418

This is honestly the first year I thought about dying Easter eggs in a long time. My babies are still too small to do it, but I began thinking about what we can use to do the eggs for them. The store bought stuff has an ingredient list that is a bit scary. I remembered a silly gender prediction at-home test I did with cooking cabbage and I recalled how the water was a purplish color and thought that could be my answer! Come to find out there are … [Read more...]

Feeding Your Toddler – A Creative Challenge!

eb_logo2

Now your little baby is a toddler, and you still have a lot to learn about feeding your toddler! At this stage, your toddler's growth rate and appetite slows down. A toddler's first agenda is to establish himself or herself as an individual. Stubbornness and fierce independence may be displayed at mealtime. We have had quite a few challenges with LA and getting him to eat. He prefers only a few foods and is very picky even with those at times.A … [Read more...]

Tommee Tippee Breast Pump Review

tt

Breastfeeding is something near and dear to my heart. I have breastfed all of my children and so far with Baby Addy we are having a successful nursing experience. Due to the fact that I do work full time and I returned to work last week I do have to rely on a breast pump to help me collect milk for her when I am working. Would it be easier to give her formula while I am gone? Absolutely! Pumping at work takes a huge dedication but I wouldn't … [Read more...]
