    Glorious Easter Weekend is upon us! We have our eggs ready for hiding, the baskets filled to the brim, I can already smell the ham cooking and the outfits are hanging pretty just waiting to be worn to church! This year, I’ve opted out of the “Easter Dress” for Gracie and opted in for the […]

    Rugged Bear

    70s and 80s all week this week! I’ll take it!! It’s been a long time coming that’s for sure. I think we can all agree, no matter where you are in the US, this past Winter was brutal! Even the beginning of Spring was very unpleasant with more snow and COLD temps. Fingers crossed it’s […]

    Smart Bottoms {giveaway}

    posted on 03.13.2014 by michelle

    I’m a big Smart Bottoms fan. I got to meet the owner Christy last year and after hearing her passion for creating quality cloth diapers, they became my favorite brand. Smart Bottoms has revamped their 3.0 design by adding 2″ to the waist, they removed the hip snap so the diaper will last longer, and […]

    Watching your children grow is a bitter sweet time over the years. And it flies by! One minute you are rocking them to sleep, breast feeding into the wee hours of the morning…and in the flash of an eye they are asking for your keys and keeping you up worrying all night long! Unless you […]

    posted on 04.07.2014 by michelle

    I am in love with glass straws, especially Glass Dharma’s Decorative Dots! My 7 year old loves drinking from a straw. Several years ago, I got tired of throwing out disposable straws and I went on a search for reusable options. That’s when I found Glass Dharma. I was a bit skeptical about glass and […]

    Yum!!! Grocery shopping now a days takes a toll. GMOS, dyes, toxics oh my! You could spend endless hours of your time reading labels and doing the research.

    Canyon Bakehouse Logo - NEW

    It seems like so many people these days have an intolerance to gluten, soy, or dairy; and even if someone doesn’t have an intolerance, so many people are choosing a gluten free and healthier lifestyle. What’s hard though, is finding the food that suits your lifestyle. It’s so hard to know what ingredients are what […]

    AromaMist from SpaRoom Essentials

    posted on 03.03.2014 by Dana

    Not that our house “smells” per say…it’s just, with 3 growing boys and a “garage hubby”, lighting a candle does our house some good. Burning candles on a daily basis not only gets expensive, it gets toxic. The older boys are prone to allergies, some airborne fragrances set them off, so my candle lightening days […]

    I love to shop, but shopping for sunglasses is pure torture. I have a long, narrow face and sunglasses just don’t fit right for me. Shopping with a 7 year old and a 16 month old makes the whole experience even more fun {insert sarcasm}. After going to 5 stores, I bought a pair of […]

    Hotmilk Nursing Bra

    posted on 04.10.2014 by michelle

    Just because you are nursing, doesn’t mean you have to go with boring lingerie! When I wore my first matching nursing bra with panties, I felt like me again rather than just a milk machine. I recently had the chance to try Hotmilk Lingerie’s Mystery Nursing Bra and it is so much better than my […]

    Manduka {eKO Yoga Mat}

    posted on 04.02.2014 by Dana

    It’s very difficult for a mother of 4, with a career outside the home AND inside the home, to make time for herself. Especially when it comes to fitness and personal health. The gym has never been my friend, I’m just not one of those people. Running “use to be” my friend, but boy is […]

    Within the past 2 months, I’ve purchased at least 5 different pairs of Spring/Summer shoes for Gigi. Some online, some in store…and out of those 5 pairs, NONE of them fit her! WHY??
