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!)

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...

Did you know that accidental deaths, such as drowning or choking are the NUMBER 1 cause of deaths in children each year!? Would you know how to save your child’s life if he or she was choking? It’s easy to say “of course!” But, in that moment, there really is only one...

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.

Danskin Memorial Weekend 40& off sale!!! ...

Being a mom to two young toddlers and trying to stay fit has been a challenge. Making time for myself in the midst of the chaos of preschool drop off and pick up, soccer practice, cooking dinner, and everything in between is almost unheard of these days in our house. Having been a runner in the past and always being pretty active, it’s hard to get back into the grind of a regular workout routine, but I have found practicing yoga both helps me get stronger to work my way back up to how I used to be able to handle my workouts and it...

Sticking to a pretty strict workout routine seven days a week has been both grueling and rewarding. I’m so happy with the results I’ve been getting, but my workout wardrobe has needed a serious makeover. I have been struggling to find the perfect yoga pant for hot yoga too, so I was pretty anxious to give Danskin’s Sleep Fit Yoga Pant a try. They’re simple and comfortable.   Since I’ve been using the FlipBelt when I workout to secure my phone, I love that these yoga pants don’t have that fold...

One of the theme’s that seems to be pretty prominent in our Mother’s Day Giveaway going on right now is fitness. As a mom of two kids, I have finally started to work towards taking control of my health. I’ve been getting into a regular workout routine and trying new workouts and programs to switch things up and keep them interesting. Mother’s Day is the perfect time to celebrate mom’s and us taking care of ourselves and spoiling ourselves for a change! When Dana from BabyElan {Daily} first told me about FlipBelt,...

You may have heard about the benefits of oil pulling recently.. it seems like it’s all the rage (it was even on GMA this week!) Well, when I first heard of it, I thought it sounded totally ridiculous, but then my natural side came out and I decided to give it a try. I figured since my Facebook status about my day 1 experience ended up with 59 curious and encouraging comments, this was a topic worth discussing and why not share my experience week to week with what I’m finding to be the benefits? I started this trend on Wednesday,...
