Accessible and Affordable Organics

Walmart Organic Breakfast

Organic products have a bad reputation for being expensive. I love giving people an alternative when they tell me they can't afford to buy organic. I understand that, I really do. Grocery money is one of the few things in a budget that can be adjusted. If you have to make cuts, often times the grocery budget is where you can do it. Recently I teamed up with Stonyfield to show everyone just how accessible and affordable organics can be when you … [Read more...]

A Twist on Popcorn – Chocolate Banana Chip Popcorn

Chocolate Banana Chip Popcorn

My family loves popcorn. The kids are always trying to create new types of popcorn but they are typically always wanting to add "treats" like candies or sprinkles. I remember years ago one of my favorite combinations was popcorn, chips and chocolate candies. I know, not the healthiest snack. When Barleans revealed our newest challenge last month I was incredibly excited! I have been a huge fan of their Butter Flavored Coconut Oil for months. A … [Read more...]

What Makes Goldfish Swim School Golden?

Golden Employees

Growing up in a small town I got accustomed to pretty much knowing everyone and always getting a neighborly smile and chat with anyone in town I came across. I moved to Michigan 17 years ago and over time I adjusted to living in a metro area where everyone wasn't as open and friendly. In the beginning it bothered me a lot. It's kinda sad that I've gotten use to it. I've recently come across some of that small town goodness again and I've realized … [Read more...]

Facts About the All New Dreft purtouch Detergent

Dreft purtouch

As the mom of 5 I can say that things do get easier. Maybe it's just that experience truly does ease the stress. With my first two (since they are 14 years apart) I was nervous about everything. Pregnancy and the thoughts of my child were the reasons I started this journey of going green. Parenthood just makes you want to do better in every aspect of your life, for your child. It's natural to want better for our children. Dreft has unveiled that … [Read more...]

Our Day at the Detroit Zoo

Detroit_Zoo

My husband asked me what I wanted to do for Mother's Day this year and I think he was surprised by my answer. I wanted to go to our local zoo with the kids. We've not been to the zoo in a few years, which is sad because we only live about 30 minutes from our local AZA accredited zoo, the Detroit Zoo. This post was done in partnership with Stonyfield. All opinions are 100% my own and are not influenced in any way. Our Visit to the Detroit … [Read more...]

What Kids Really Think About Goldfish Swim School

Kids_GSS

Kids say just about anything. Mine do anyway. Sometimes they are so funny. The also say very honest things. They will tell you how it is and not mean to be rude (if they are). I often laugh at the things my kids say. It's very entertaining. My five year old, Addy, talks and talks and talks. I don't think the girl knows how to stop sometimes. I thought she would be the perfect one to ask about her experience at Goldfish Swim School. She's normally … [Read more...]
