Change Your Clock Change Your Batteries

Disclosure: This post brought to you by Energizer. In our camper, we rely on many different things to keep us safe. The two main ones inside are our smoke and carbon monoxide detector.  The carbon monoxide detector goes off about once a month. It's typically when the toddler accidentally has bumped the stove knob on, and our gas stove is leaking propane into our camper. The smoke detector goes off about every other month, to alert me that dinner is done. But both those detectors, as annoying as they are when they go off are important devices that I rely on to keep my family alive in the event of an … [Read more...]

6 Ways To Eat Cereal (Not With Milk) + Grocery Outlet Sale!

Disclosure: This post brought to you by Grocery Outlet. Oh cereal. How I love you so. In our house, believe it or not it is rarely eaten out of a bowl with milk for breakfast. Instead we enjoy mixing it with other things and eating it for snacks. Sometimes we mix it with savory things for an anytime snack and sometimes sweet things for a special after dinner treat. The following 6 ways are our favorite! Trail Mix: When snacks are running low, I like to mix them all together in plastic bags and call them trail mix. Peanuts, almonds, raisins, M&Ms, sunflower seeds, pretzels, peanuts and almost … [Read more...]

Planetbox Rover Bento Lunchbox

Disclosure: The products pictured below were provided compliments of Planetbox. I have always been a nature loving, animal nurturing person ever since I was a little girl.  If I see trash outside I will pick it up and dispose of it.  At times I have even went as far as picking recyclables out of the trash container and putting them in the recycle container.   We have to care for this Earth, as we only have one.  There are no do-overs.  When packing my kids lunches for school it always bothered me all the plastic bags I would use for everything.  One bag for the sandwich, another for the fruit, another … [Read more...]

Yellowberry – The Perfect First Bra

Disclosure: The products below were provided compliments of Yellowberry. For me, there was a sad feeling that came over me when I realized my nine year old needed her first bra.  My baby was blossoming into a young lady and I wasn't ready for it.  I ignored it for awhile, she wore tanks with built in bras under her shirts and after a couple weeks we went bra shopping. I wasn't just searching for a bra, I was searching for the perfect first bra. After about an hour and a half of looking at different stores and trying to convince myself that what I saw on the racks was ok and what girls were wearing … [Read more...]

Crisp – Kitchen Tools For Healthy Eating

Disclosure: The products below were provided compliments of Crisp. I think we all want to be healthier, eat healthier, drink more water and exercise.  Lets face it, having a healthier lifestyle can be a challenge when you aren't prepped and prepared for it.  Otherwise you find yourself in the same grind of quick processed meals or fast food drive-thru.  Spending lots of time in the kitchen is few and far between for my family and is typically only done on weekends, if we have a spare one.  If I want healthy meals during the week some of my prep work is done Sundays. Luckily, there is a company called … [Read more...]
