Another Explosive Goodie Box

*I received this product free for review. You could too! No blog needed!* September’s Goodie Box arrived like all my other fabulous goodie boxes with one notably difference….one of my sample BBQ sauces exploded. It was a massive explosion that took quite a few diaper wipes to clean up, but since all the products in my Daily Goodie Boxes thus far have been so phenomenal, I was not going to let one rogue sauce ruin […]

Craniosynostosis Awareness & Acceptance Month & Why It Matters to Me

“Do you see it?” My husband was the first to really notice around our daughter’s 9 month-day. I immediately began to feel defensive. Afterall, I’m their primary caregiver & the one who gave them life. If anyone should notice a problem, it should’ve been me, their mom. But I didn’t, or didn’t want to, and it took me a few weeks before I finally saw what he saw. Our daughter’s head was sloping in around […]

Lessons in Sugar Waxing

This past week I attempted to do a thing that I failed at tremendously. I spent 3 full days failing before the fourth day where I finally got it right. What did this teach me? That no one who has ever succeeded got there without a few set backs and that it’s the perseverance and persistence to keep moving forward despite said set-backs that is most important. I wanted to make Sugar Wax — the […]

Yes, I’m still breastfeeding

While this year’s World Breast Feeding Week has come to a close, I can’t help but reflect on the last 4 years I’ve spent as a mother. Breastfeeding has been such a huge part of that. I started breastfeeding in June 2013 when our first baby was born. The bond was incredible and while it wasn’t always the easiest journey (more about that here & here), our breastfeeding relationship lasted 26 months just in time […]

Dairy Free Dino Birthday Cake!!

Pretty sure we nailed parenting for little man’s fourth birthday! He specifically requested a dinosaur chocolate cake, and boy did we deliver. Now, y’all, this kid is dairy-free, soy-free, & never eats junky food coloring because he has food allergies and acid reflux, so I spent awhile looking around for the perfect recipe. I searched Pinterest high & low, but nothing matched up. Finally, I remembered about this depression time cake recipe where they were […]

LipSense gave me something special & I want to share it with you!

What was it about LipSense that moved me so much that within a week I had decided I wanted to sell it? Was it how hassle free it is? Sure, that’s nice. I love that my color really does last all day long and that my lips are healthier than they’ve ever been, but there was something more.  I had never wanted to mess with lipstick. Honestly, I felt foolish wearing it, like I looked […]

Spring Fling & Easter Things Round Up — Vegan Bunny Pancakes

Last year, after Easter, I came across an idea for bunny pancakes and mentally filed it away to try when the opportunity came around again. Although I pinned the recipe, there wasn’t much point as our kid’s are both allergic to dairy & soy. So, I adapted the yummy activity to be vegan and here are the results!  To make the pancake batter: 1 cup White Flour 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder 1/4 teaspoon Salt 2 […]
