If I could only eat one cereal for the rest of my life…

If I could only eat one cereal for the rest of my life…

…what would it be? For me that is easy. The one cereal, that I have loved since I was little has always been Honey Bunches of Oats. Either the Honey Roasted or with Almonds. Now-a-days they also have Honey Bunches of Oats Fruit Blends, which sound really good too. Why Honey Bunches of Oats? You […]

Best baby toy ever!

Best baby toy ever!

When Carleigh was little, I went out and bought one of those door way jumper things. It was okay. She liked jumping in it, but it had no toys and I kept worrying about her hitting one of the door frames. Fast forward a couple of years, and after Kendall was born I learned about […]

Look Cute Going to the Gym

Look Cute Going to the Gym

One thing that has changed for me in the past few weeks, is the fact that I’m now in my workout clothes about 80% of the time. When I wake up in the morning, I put on my workout clothes, take Carleigh to school, then hit the gym. Who wants to go out looking like […]

Because I just can’t give up my morning coffee. #NaturalBlissWM #CBias

I’m not on a diet. I’m going through a life change, and because of that I’m changing what I put into my body as well as my kids’. Just because I am choosing fruit over cake and ice cream, or vegetables over chips…doesn’t mean I have to give up my “fuel” in the morning. My […]

Do you need to go to Handbags Anonymous?

Do you need to go to Handbags Anonymous?

If you do…don’t read this post. Just kidding. I love bags, purses, handbags, whatever you want to call them. My problem, is that I just don’t have the money to spend on a purse, that I know I am going to get bored with within a few weeks. Thank heaven for Miche Bags. It’s a […]

Imaginative Play with K’NEX

Imaginative Play with K’NEX

With all the smart phones, iPad’s, computers, and television, our children are starting to get further away from the fundamentals of play time and learning. Imaginative and cognitive play. Growing up in the early 90′s, our idea of a fun time was climbing trees, riding bikes around the neighborhood, playing with Barbie’s, and building little houses out of […]

Everyone’s big dream is to be a super hero and with Leap of Faith Clothing your cape is just one Velcro snap away! When I showed him the wide variety of caped tees from Leap of Faith Clothing, he skimmed right past the robot, airplane and rocket. Instead, he wanted to rock the Ring Bearer […]

A couple of Jay at Play toys, your kids will love too.

Logan is a sucker for infomercials and a Happy Nappers is something he’s been wanting for quite some time. He was quite tickled when a special package showed up just for him. Hiding inside was Igloo to Penguin. In this house, penguins are kind of a big deal so it worked out perfectly. Logan’s favorite part […]

Do you love to cook?

Do you love to cook?

I don’t know about you, but I love to cook. Especially now, since I am trying to lose weight, and eat better. Nothing is worse, then having a crappy set of cookware when you cook almost all your meals for yourself or your family. So when I had the chance to test out Bialetti Pans, […]

BornFree for Toddlers

Kids grow up fast enough already, and while I can’t wait for Olivia to be using a big girl cup, a stock pile and variety of sippy cups is inevitable. Luckily for me BornFree takes out all the guess work of the ever changing “what to watch out for” list.   Their training and toddler […]

Where have I been?

Where have I been?

This week has been CRAZY! It all started Saturday night, when my daughter broke her arm. Then on Monday, the doctors told us she needed to have surgery. My tiny little two year old. It seriously broke my heart, for her. Pretty much what happened was, she fractured her arm right above the elbow, and it was […]

Four Months Old…already??

I still can’t believe I am writing a post about baby Athena being 4 months old already! It’s insane how quickly these little girls of mine are growing up.
