Kids Garden Activity: ReUse Yogurt Cups to Plant Organic Seeds

Planting Seeds Collage

This post was created in partnership with Stonyfield. All opinions are my own. It's Spring time and we've been spending every possible moment that we can outside during these last few weeks. The girls love it and it gives me a renewed sense of energy, especially after all the moving stress that's been happening! We're in our new house and absolutely loving our surroundings but one thing we're definitely missing is our container gardens this year. Our new home has a wonderful yard but building our container gardens has been put on the back burner for a bit until we're really settled in. But that doesn't mean we have to skip on the Spring planting season, of course! As a brand partnership for the month, Stonyfield Organic connected us with High Mowing Organic Seeds for our garden. We were sent quite the spread of seeds and that … [Read more...]

Care for Baby’s Sensitive Skin with Weleda [+ Exclusive Weleda Coupon Code]

Weleda Trio Products

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Weleda. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All opinions and reviews are my own. My babies aren't technically babies anymore, but they still do have super sensitive skin that so many children seem to have these days. Sophia has especially sensitive skin and often has breakouts of eczema. I remember in a post a year or so ago a reader told me that I could treat her eczema, but I needed to find the root of the problem of what was causing the skin breakouts. Unfortunately it seems to be directly related to her consumption of gluten and we haven't been completely strict in eliminating gluten completely [have you seen how much of our current foods have hidden gluten!?!]. So I've been … [Read more...]

Celebrate Earth Day with Nature’s Path Organic & Envirokidz [+ Earth Day Prize Pack Giveaway!]

Natures Path Giveaway

I first noticed Nature's Path Organic cereals in a semi-local Trader Joe's and after we tried them and the girls loved them, I've been noticing the products popping up in even more local markets! I have to admit, they're delicious, but the girls are totally attracted to the fun boxes and animals too. Envirokidz is all about making learning enjoyable and delicious. These cereals and bars are not only kid favorites, but they donate 1% of sales to support endangered species, habitat conservation and environmental education for kids worldwide. When Nature's Path offered to send us a Party Kit perfect for Earth Day - I jumped at the chance. I was totally excited to find a great array of products, as well as fun animal stickers and activity books too! Also included in the kit were some really fun recipes that we'll definitely be making … [Read more...]

It's Spring Time... thank goodness all the snow is gone here in east Tennessee and the sun is shining!  Spring means so many things, but one thing it makes me excited for is sandal and bright clothes weather - for me and the girls.  While we were on a trip a few weeks ago, we headed into a Carter's store to do some Spring Shopping and I can't wait to show you what we chose!

8 Times I Wish I’d Had the Step2 Igloo® Wagon with Cooler™ [+ a DOUBLE Giveaway!]

Step2 Wagon 8 Times

I am a Step2 Ambassador and am partnering with Step2 for the following review. I received a product in exchange for my review and honest opinion. Even though my girls are getting older, I'm often reminded of just how little their legs still are.  Whether we're taking off for a stroll around the neighborhood or a day of walking around Dollywood, I often hear "I'm tired!  Carry me!" before we've even really began.  That's why we still have to take along a stroller - sometimes a single, sometimes a double - but no matter what we bring along we always seem to not have room for it all. That's until we met this little beauty... the Step2 Igloo® Wagon with Cooler™.  Let me start out this post by saying I've never felt the wagon love.  I would see parents tugging along kids behind them in wagons at theme parks and I never got it.  Wagons [to … [Read more...]

WeeRide USA Kangaroo Deluxe Child Bicycle Carrier

WeeRide Family

This post about the Kangaroo Deluxe Child Bicycle Carrier has been inspired by a collaboration with WeeRide USA.  All opinions are my own. Before our girls came along my husband and I loved to spend time outside.  We would work in the garden and around the house.  We would go on short hikes on mountain trails.  And we loved riding bicycles.  We've traveled to Damascus, Virginia a few times to ride The Creeper Trail. But after having the girls, riding bikes was something that definitely had to take a back seat - unless we had a babysitter for the day.  If only we had known about WeeRide USA when the girls were younger... we wouldn't have had to give up riding! Now when I was a toddler, I rode in a seat on the back of my Dad's bike.  I don't actually remember riding in that type of seat, but there are plenty of pictures to make me … [Read more...]

Easter Tic Tac Toe – Free Printable

Easter Candy Tic Tac Toe

We're coming up on one of the sweetest holidays of the year... are your baskets ready?!  My girls' baskets are thanks to a lovely package of YumEarth Organic Candy that showed up at our house [at no cost to facilitate this review]. YumEarth Organic Candy is one of my girls' favorites all year around, so it's no surprise that I would include these delicious, organic candies in their Easter baskets too! But this year, I'm going a step further and I created this totally cute and fun Easter Tic Tac Toe Game to make our YumEarth Easter candies even more fun... before they're eaten! Sophia and Moreaya are really starting to enjoy board games and games that they can interact with one another and me and Rob so a personalized Tic Tac Toe board made the perfect addition to YumEarth Sour Beans and Gummy Bears. Would your kiddos love to … [Read more...]

Lil Bums One Size Cloth Diapers

LilBums Sizing Collage

We were provided cloth diapers for review purposes.  All opinions are our own. I'm always happy to add new cloth diapers to our fluffy stash, so I was excited for the opportunity to try out Lil Bums cloth diapers. Lil Bums sent us 2 complimentary pocket diapers in their newest prints. The elephant print has a super soft minky outer that's covered in cute colorful elephants. It's not only super soft, but adorable as well.  The other print is a fun gray and white chevron.
