Looking for Great Swaddle Blankets? JJ Cole Has Them! (Review and Giveaway)


Since baby Addy was born in the winter I made sure I had a lot of blankets to swaddle her.

Most recently I discovered that JJ Cole has muslin blankets! I was pleasantly surprised at this because I know JJ Cole creates wonderful quality products!We received their … [Read more...]

Out and About with JJ Cole’s Myla Bag and a Giveaway!


Now that summer is here we have been out and about quite often. We love going out and enjoying the beautiful, warm days. With two little ones, we have a lot of things that we need to take with us when we go even to on the shortest of trips (like to the mall). I have been through several diaper bags in the past few years and it's rather difficult to find one that meets all of your needs as a mama. Not only are their certain needs that the bag must … [Read more...]

Go Green Get Fit Weekly Update


If you remember, I posted about the Go Green Get Fit Challenge that many green bloggers are taking on. Have you joined in? I pasted my program goals below just to reference them in how I am doing.

I actually did not meet my goal with this last week. The times I walked though I walked one mile. … [Read more...]

Lovin’ Bath Time with Live Clean Baby and a Giveaway


Good smellin' babies just have a way of making my heart melt. There is just something about holding a baby that has that fresh, clean baby scent. In the past we've used many organic/natural products that are great for our babies but the one thing they are missing is the scent that I love. I am more than willing to miss out on this if it means the products are safe for my baby, but with Live Clean Baby I've found safe products that also have that … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday ~ Do Not Disturb


This might be a boring WW to some of you, but it's a big part of my life. I work outside of the house four days each week. Every day that I am at work this sign is a big part of my day.

I have only given baby Addy breast milk and hope that I'll never have to give her formula. So...this sign is important to me. When this is one … [Read more...]

In addition, it helps build collagen, which forms connective tissue that binds muscles, bones, and … [Read more...]

My husband and I have quite the little snacker on our hands with our little guy. LA is ALWAYS wanting snacks so we have to carefully select what we can buy to keep around the house.
