This is a “sponsored post. The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value to write it. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.   How much could you do with an extra hour a day? I know when I ask myself that question, I start listing things in my head, More blog posts More laundry More housework More, More, More, More, More. We live in a world today where we’re always feeling like we need to do more. We...

This is a “sponsored post in partnership with BJ’s Wholesale Club.  I am a BJ’s Wholesale Club Blogger Ambassador. BJ’s compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value to write it. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.   Now that we’re settling into life of a family of five (slowly, but surely that is!) I am starting to get into a grind of keeping our pantry and freezer stocked with healthy and easy to prepare meals...

Being on a kindergarten schedule this year has seriously thrown our family for a loop. We’ve gone from having to have the kiddos ready and at preschool by 9:30am, to having to have my son fed, dressed, and out the door by 7:15. On top of that, this mom is pregnant and exhausted and daddy has to be out the door at the same time as the little guy to head to work. Can you imagine the chaos that ensues in our house on a regular day-to-day basis? While my kids would probably be okay skipping breakfast completely and grabbing something...

This is a sponsored post with One2One Network for Crest. All opinions expressed are my own.   Being a mom of two young kids, setting them up for healthy futures is one of my most important roles as their mom. I want to instill healthy habits on them now, so they stick with them as they get older. Proper oral care is a gateway to our health.. and that is something I never quite thought so much about until now. Dr. Travis Stork, Emmy nominated host of The Doctors and board-certified emergency medicine physician, has partnered with...

  Being a SAHM doesn’t leave me with much time to accomplish things for myself. Some mornings the kids will play upstairs and I’ll work on some blog posts or attempt to get some laundry done, but more often than not until daddy gets home around 6pm, my day revolves around the kids. Not that I mind (I know I only get times like these in their first years) and now that both kids are a little older, I’ve started to let them do certain things with me. When both kids were babies, I would occasionally do baby yoga with them,...

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own. I still remember my first few days in braces way back in 7th grade. I remember being both excited and annoyed that I would be sporting the bright silver and colorful tones on my teeth. First, let me just say I was totally “that girl” who wore school colors during spirit week, green on St. Patrick’s Day, red on Valentine’s Day, green and red for Christmas, and the list goes on. But… not only did I wear them on my clothes, but...
