Spring Time Fun with Evenflo!

We are finally getting some Spring like weather here!  I know, I know, Spring doesn’t actually begin for a few weeks but we’ve had such a wet and cold winter that the gorgeous clear blue skies and milder temps are so appreciated around here.

Especially when you have two little boys who love to be outside. [Read more…]

Happy Wednesday!

Hope you’re all having a great week so far!

Life with a newborn has been an adjustment from the way life used to be.  On most days before Little Squish, I was able to make us a full breakfast, pack snacks to go do whatever we needed to do, come home to make a full lunch, and then cook a full dinner most nights.

Now most my time is spent holding the baby, nursing the baby, and changing the baby.  What time I’m not spending on those things, I’m trying to spend on The Love Nugget.  Which leaves me with very little time to cook meals like I used to.  So now more than ever meal prep is so essential for me.  I’ve been making sure to spend a little time over the weekends to prep some food for the week.  It helps SO much when I have something I can quickly grab and eat immediately or re-heat and eat.

Preparing for Baby with P&G and Walmart

Preparing for Baby with P&G and Walmart

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Walmart.

You guys!  I can’t believe we could literally meet our little guy any day now!   We are beyond excited to FINALLY grow our family.  It’s been a long road and we know the end result is going to be amazing!!!!

As we prepare to meet our little man, we’ve been making sure we’re all stocked up on all the major necessities.  Some that we didn’t have prior to The Love Nugget being born…

We learned pretty quickly after his arrival, to always expect the unexpected.  When we had The Love Nugget, we were new, unexperienced parents.  We didn’t know what clothes were best for him, what bottles to buy, or what diapers to use.  Diapers were one thing we didn’t really think were all that important.  I mean, of course we knew they were important to have, but we didn’t know the brand could make a difference.  I learned my lesson when The Love Nugget was about 6 weeks old and we were at a new mom meet up group.

Keep your Fitness Fresh with Cottonelle

Keep your Fitness Fresh with Cottonelle


I’m now almost 34 weeks pregnant and nearing the end.  If you’ve been pregnant before you know that with the third trimester comes some unpleasant side effects.   Fatigue, heartburn, the return of nausea, back pain, stretch marks, varicose veins and the constant urge to pee are just a few.  Some of which I’ve experienced and luckily, some of which I have not.  One that has hit me hard though and has made for some annoying situations has been the constant urge to urinate along with the occasional leaky bladder.

A Healthy Mint Chip Protein Milk Shake

A Healthy Mint Chip Protein Milk Shake

When we were in Disneyland The Love Nugget had his first milk shake from Ghirardelli Chocolate and Soda Fountain.  I know, first milkshake?  We just don’t really eat stuff like that and tend to make smoothies at home so he hadn’t had one. Of course he enjoyed it.  So much that I didn’t even get to snap a picture because it was gone before we knew it!

Upon returning home I wanted to show him that we can have a healthier version of an ice cream treat that’s just as enjoyable.  Luckily I had just received a large package of a delicious protein treat that’s much healthier than your average frozen yogurt.

Number 1 Goal in the 2016!

Number 1 Goal in the 2016!

“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and PEOPLE®, Real Simple® but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #NewYearMeTime http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

2016 is bringing lots of changes in our lives.  Mainly, that we’ll be adding another member to our family in June!  Which is definitely something we are looking forward to, but I often wonder if we’re crazy for shaking things up.  Right now we’ve got it pretty good.  The Love Nugget is 4 1/2 and is very independent.  Which allows me to have more time to myself than I know I’ll be getting in a few months.  This definitely makes me nervous!  I’ve learned just how important it is for my mind and body to have “me time.”  It allows me to decompress, zone out, and relax.  Which I know we can all agree ALL moms need at some point.

Fun Gift Idea that will keep you Kids Entertained!

Fun Gift Idea that will keep you Kids Entertained!

If you have kids you probably know how tiresome it can be trying to keep them entertained.  Especially if it’s cold, rainy, or maybe snowing outdoors so you’re stuck indoors…   On days like that we go tend to go through MANY different activities.  Reading, building legos, playing with race cars, play dough, painting, coloring, crafting, baking, on and on and on.  It can be a very tiresome day for mammas!

The Love Nugget has four sets of Grandparents that love him very much.

He adores each of them and gets so excited when he’s going to see them.  Unfortunately, we don’t live all that close.  Which means we aren’t able to get together as much as we’d all like.  Especially the grandparents.  They love seeing their grandson and hearing about how much he’s growing.  Especially milestones.   Even as he gets older they light up when he tells them about how he learned to ride his big boy bike, or that he has a new play structure and he climbs all the way to the top.  So since they aren’t able to see him and his success’ in person that much, we try to keep them up to date through photos.   [Read more…]

Swanson’s Vitamin Giveaway

Swanson’s Vitamin Giveaway

Hi friends!

Hope you’re all having a great week.  Ours started out normal but unfortunately The Love Nugget came down with the stomach flu Tuesday evening.  Never a fun thing for kids or parents but I will admit as he gets older it’s much easier when he does get sick.  At least he can sense when he’s going to lose it and most the time can make it to the bathroom…  Silver linings right?

Luckily he had a day off of school yesterday already and Wednesday I had a pretty clear schedule.   We spent most the day in our pajamas, lounging on the couch watching movies and playing ABC Mouse online.  Despite a few trips to the bathroom, he was in great spirits, had no fever and didn’t seem that sick so hoping it’s gone by today…

On another note, have you guys heard of Swanson Vitamins?  I had heard of them before and honestly thought they were just what they were called.  A vitamin shop.  Boy was I wrong!
