3 Unique Ways To Pamper Yourself Without Leaving Home

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #PeopleRewardsClub #CollectiveBias As a mom, the idea of taking “me” time can be stressful. Just planning a time to go somewhere, making sure the kids are watched, then leaving and worrying…is it really “me” time? Sometimes a better way to go is to take a few minutes at home, where you can spend some time rejuvenating, rather than packing up to go somewhere. Especially with kids headed back to school this time of year, there’s just a bit of extra time while they are gone to allow yourself to take a small break.

Surviving Meal Time and Veggies With Picky Toddlers

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #BaronessPatches #CollectiveBias I’ve got three boys, two of which are picky eaters, the other one is a nine month old baby who wants to eat everything. He’d probably be happiest with wood chips and dirt, rather than the organic purees.  Here’s the link I mentioned to the Sweepstakes for $4,295 in e-gift cards form Walmart and pizza gift cards yay!! #BaronessPatches #Sweepstakes (8/10 to 9/7) I’ve had my fair share of struggles with getting my toddlers to eat anything really. They just don’t want to slow down and eat. Playing, running, fighting, hiding…those things are all way more fun. I’ve had to really step up my veggie game to get these boys to even look at anything green. For a while, I resorted to actually putting bowls of food on the floor with…

A Way To Earn Money While Back To School Shopping

Its that time of year where we get excited to shop for cozy sweaters, fancy boots and felt hats. I am way too excited about my oldest heading into a small, Pre-K class. This post is sponsored by DOSH. All opinions are my own!  He is wearing a uniform, but of course, I will still be doing some back-to-school shopping. I have a great way for all the mamas out there who don’t want to step foot in the mall with kids in tow. Suckers, strollers, snacks, movies…it’s all just stressful, so I checked into my DOSH app to see what kind of online savings we could find for back to school shopping. Turns out, there are some great deals at my favorite places for back-to-school clothes. Gap, Nordstrom Rack, Old Navy and Target all have great cash-back incentives for shopping online through DOSH.

Honest Review of Beach Body On Demand From A Non-Coach

I think its safe to say most of us have a friend that would love to sell us their Shakeology and sign us up for their fit camp, or add us to their accountability Facebook group. The industry is a bit saturated now, but I can totally see why. The selling point, Get paid to get fit and post on Facebook!, that I’ve seen is attractive in and of itself. But, what I REALLY WANT TO KNOW, is does it work? Is it all hype, or is it a great workout? I saw the advertisement for Beach Body on Demand’s free 14-Day trial, and thought I’d give it a go, and report back to you all with an honest review! I attempted to report to you in diary-form. So you can get an idea of what it looks like to work out with kids. I took some video footage, but…

The Question I Wish I Knew I’d Have to Answer in The Delivery Room

*this post is sponsored by CBR. As always, my opinions are all my own! I’m three babies deep now, so the delivery process isn’t as mysterious and foreign to me now, as it was with my first baby. I remember staying up late and watching A Baby Story (apparently they are bringing it back!) at 2am on TLC. I was trying to mentally prepare myself for this unknown, magical experience that was going to happen to my body. Of course my hospital bag was packed three months too early (my first baby was a week late), and I was packed for a week stay at a hotel. My new baby had five outfits and seven hats. All were way too big. I prepared for my first labor by spending hours and hours on Pinterest, reading everything I could. Making sure I knew about every car seat and high chair on…

Packing Power Lunches With Protein for Better Learners

Disclosure: This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, Organic Valley. All opinions are mine alone. #GetCheesy #CollectiveBias Being a mom of boys, you get used to managing these big bundles of energy that are almost unmanageable both for me, the mom and for the boys. But, their energy is also very subject to what they eat. I am super serious about what I pack for them in their lunches, because I know how quickly their blood sugar can drop, which they then become lethargic and very grumpy.  My boys are high-energy, and they tend to get low blood sugar fast. Being at school limits the amount of snacks they can have, so it is super important that I pack the right lunches, as well as give them the right after school snack to boost their blood sugar with a stable energy source. This is where…
