What I Love and Hate About Co-Sleeping + The Softest Nursing Bra

This post is sponsored by Bravado, but all opinions and thoughts are completely my own. I only accept sponsorship from products I know I love, and hope that you will too! #upliftingineveryway I wasn’t prepared for the tremendous sleep deprivation a newborn baby brings. There’s not really words to describe it. I remember it being worst with my first baby because I wasn’t used to it. I would try to sleep, then be jerked awake at the smallest sound of the baby making a noise. I also didn’t know how to get a baby on a sleeping schedule, without having him cry his lungs out, so it was a big mess of dark circles and zombie hair for the first few months. I was literally trying everything to get my new little bundle to sleep. A swing, crib, swaddling and bouncy chair. Nothing was working, and in pure desperation I…

Mom Survival Must-Haves for Traveling Alone With Kids

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc.. All opinions are mine alone. #ShineWithClearEyes #MyShiningMoment #CollectiveBias I’m feeling like a rock star today because I survived a red eye flight across country by myself. The trick is packing strategically. Moms on the go need to pack for survival both for themselves and their kids. Here’s what I brought with me that helped me fly solo with three kids under 5 and live to tell the tale! My first advice is to pack your own mom survival pack. The better mood you are in, the more fun and entertaining you’ll be able to do for your kids. They will feed off of your energy. Packing things to keep you comfortable and in a good mood is one of your biggest essentials. It will transform your experience, put everyone in a better mood, and you won’t spend a lot of money buying…

6 On-The-Go Items You Must Pack To Keep Up Your Postpartum Weight Loss

This shop has been compensated by CollectiveBias, Inc. on behalf of its advertiser, ZonePerfect. #MyLittleWins #CollectiveBias I’ve found, that if I don’t pack myself some healthy snacks, then there are some not-so-great choices that happen. Chocolate bar in the check out line at the store, half a bag of crackers two-weeks-old in the bottom of my purse, or baby cookies that are not meant for teeth…these are all true decisions I have made, in my not-so great and healthy moments. But, after a few repeated incidents, I have learned to plan ahead, so I don’t have to make choices like these anymore. Packing healthier options is super important to help us mamas stick to our goals of losing the baby weight. It is the times when we are out of energy, on the run and stressed when we give in to the candy bars, crackers or cheeseburgers. Packing the perfect,…

4 Super Simple & Giggly After-School Snacks To Make With Your Kids

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, INC. and The Coca-Cola Company, all opinions are mine alone. #AFreshIdeaForAfterSchool #CollectiveBias I am so excited I get to venture into the after-school snack territory this year. Its new territory, and I am finding that the more fun the snacks are, the more likely my boys are to eat them. Eating in general is not their strong point, unless it’s pure sugar. I am not super strict on sugar, because I want them to learn how to eat sugar in moderation. My boys love Coca-Cola™, and they get so excited to have a little bit with their after school snack. The Coca-Cola Mini Cans are great because the don’t drink that much. Boy do they feel special, and my husband loves a Coca-Cola, so they think they are big boys when I hand them their after-school treat. They get about half-way through, then I save the…

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SoHoppinGood #BlueBunny #CollectiveBias Back to school season is in full swing, and so are the massive amounts of peanut butter and jelly sandwhiches. Being as excited as we are, we are of course celebrating with some fabulous Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshakes with Blue Bunny® PB ‘N Cones™!
