I can't believe two things.  One- That we are already contemplating potty learning (I mean she was just born right!?) and Two - That we didn't have the Joovy Loo and StepTool as soon as we started.  Luckily we have them now!  When we were first starting to introduce potty learning, I didn't really know what to do.  Sit her on the big seat with assistance from one of us?  Use one of those little seat inserts? Or use an actual potty seat. We've done all of the above, and still are using a combination, but we love the Loo.

During Blogger Bash we were given amazing access to a never before seen new movie from Leapfrog Letter Factory Adventures: Counting on Lemonade.  It was absolutely adorable and we knew Skibbles would love it.  We were recently given a chance to receive our own copy with it's September 9th release date and were even given the opportunity to chat with the creators during a webinar to see how the movie's made and the transformation of the characters over the years.  For me, it was truly fascinating.

How To Slow Cook A Whole Chicken + Heritage Farm Fare + Giveaway #FarmFare

*Disclosure: Affiliate links may be contained in this post. We receive a small commission for purchases and thank you for helping us continue to run our site.

I absolutely love the months of May-October.  It's extremely easy to visit a local farm or farmer's market and find stunning, fresh, beautiful produce.  It's the perfect time to stock up on all these great items and freeze or can what you are able too so that you have a year round abundance to better produce.  This year we were able to grow some of our own being in our house for the first time, but we still relied on local farms for more than we could do. What could be better? How about a recipe that will feed your family multiple times?

Breastfeeding on the Go with Bravado - 5 Tips for the Breastfeeding Mom


*Disclosure: We received the product(s) discussed in this post free of charge. Thoughts and opinions are 100% ours. 

When I first became a mom and started to breastfeed, I had no idea what I was really in for on this journey.  Based on what everyone kept telling me I felt like I was going to be stuck in the house for our entire nursing relationships. A Bravado study revealed that only 38% of moms are extremely comfortable traveling with a baby under one while breastfeeding. Despite this, more than 53% do actually travel.  For me, thanks to some very amazing friends, I learned that I didn't really ever need to be home, even if I was breastfeeding. 

Spaghetti Squash Shrimp Alfredo



Everyday Andrew and I try to eat better, more real foods.  We've been incorporating more ways to eat less processed foods and more fruits and vegetables.  I'll be the first to admit that this is not the easiest thing, especially for Andrew.  I'm a lot more open-minded, but he struggles.  Being someone that is already extremely picky with his food, he just can't wrap his head around things.  One of those things, was this Spaghetti Squash Shrimp Alfredo.

It's back to school season and hopefully you have fell into a good routine so far, but I'm sure there are parents out there dreading the morning hair routine.  You want your little ones to look cute, but listening to the screaming and fighting through a cute hair style when you're already running 15 minutes late is good for no one.  I was recently introduced to SoCozy kid's hair care line and we are extremely impressed.

Pink Blush Women's Line


*Disclosure: We received the product(s) discussed in this post free of charge. Thoughts and opinions are 100% ours. 

Last year, I had the opportunity to check out Pink Blush Maternity Line.  I absolutely loved the dress that I was sent and I'm still patiently waiting to get pregnant so I can wear it more often! I was recently very excited when they announced they were launching a new women's line!  They have the most adorable maternity/nursing items, so I knew they weren't going to let me down with this new line.  And I was right.
