Packing school lunches just got easier with Easy Lunchboxes {Giveaway} (CLOSED)

A delicious lunch!! Turkey, cheese, lettuce and spicy mustard inside a whole wheat pita bread, cucumber sticks, blueberries, strawberries and a few Jax. I also stuck a cookie in her lunch cooler, two juice boxes, a banana and a whole wheat English muffin with PB! PLUS two ice packs :)

I never realized how hard packing school lunches could be before my daughter started school this year. Making lunch wasn’t something that I thought out or planned before hand; I would just kind of wander into the kitchen around noon and see what we had. Sometimes it would be a super elaborate and creative lunch, and sometimes it was just a really good sandwich. Either way, it was good, easy and quick. Making lunch got a LOT harder this year. {Read More}

My daughter loves to paint her nails. It makes her feel extra fancy and dressed up, and I must admit, I always feel a bit more polished when my nails are painted as well! The only downfalls – long dry time, nasty smell, and one nail always gets chipped or smudged and has to be taken off and redone. What a pain! I had been painting V’s nails less and less because she is a busy girl, and just does {Read More}

With Earth Day fast approaching, I thinking about the choices that I make everyday and how to provide a cleaner, healthier world for my children to grow up in. Now don’t get me wrong, it is not just Earth Day that focuses my attention on these matters, it is just that with so much going on with attempts to live a greener life with a smaller carbon footprint sometimes fall to the back burner. Thankfully, there are companies that make {Read More}

Umi Shoes Review

UMI logo

I have always been boarder line obsessed with kids shoes. When Vi first started walking and needed shoes, I was a complete lunatic – I researched every brand and the benefits and downfalls of each type of shoe… basically, I drove everyone crazy! I have relaxed a little since then, but felt that similar panic when E was reaching “shoe age”. Thankfully, I found Umi…. A shoe brand that I wish I had discovered 3 years ago when V was {Read More}

dipper

I am the first to admit that I LOVE bottled water. There is just something that is so nice about the convenience of it. However, I do not like all the waste, and the negative effects of plastic bottles on the earth. I had given up my bottled water, until I found EcoUsable. EcoUsable is a reusable Stainless Steel water bottle! I love that they offer a light weight, safe water bottle – in a variety of colors and styles. {Read More}
