Ever think you yourself “My life is just not busy enough?” No? Well, I’m all about that hustle, to a fault. Like, I feel guilty each moment I’m not doing something to further my career, blog presence or help my family. Perhaps it’s a mom thing. Maybe I’m just a born entrepreneur? In any case, on top of my full-time job, full-time blog and full-time wife/mother gigs, I’ve become a LuLaRoe Retailer.
When families with young kids consider getting a dog, they often prefer an energetic puppy. I get it. Your kids like to play, and you want a companion for them who also likes to play. There’s also the idea that you can mold the puppy into being the dog you want it to be. Well, I’m here to make the case that the best dogs for young families are older dogs.
Molr Dental Club is a Dental Health Subscription service that is sure to keep your teeth on the right track. Most people wait far too long to replace their toothbrushes, so every two months Molr sends you a package of two toothbrushes, floss and toothpaste.
People say parenting is bittersweet. I’ve heard the stories of parents crying when their babies go to school for the first time. I know there are so many big milestones along the way and this is only the beginning, but y’all, my baby got his first haircut. HIS FIRST HAIRCUT! I don’t even know how I’m typing this right now, I’m still feeling emotional about it. My son was born with a full head of hair, and it’s always been full for its age. I knew this day would come sooner than I desired, but all the emotions have hit me hard at once.
Do you have a website go-to when it comes to buying a dress for a special occasion? We all have our favorite haunts, and typically they are brick and mortar stores where we can actually try on the clothes. Let’s face it, buying from an internet store feels risky. You don’t know hat the quality of the fabric will be like or if the clothes will fit on the larger or small side of your dress size. Well, let me tell you, as a friend, if you have not tried out Eshakti, you don’t know what you’re missing.
I’m pretty stoked that Chanukah collides with Christmas this year. That fact that Chanukah arrives so late means that we can enjoy a “Chanukah Season,” and put up festive decorations for the entire month. I recently bought a beautiful, authentic mid-century sideboard for the entryway at the Raleigh Flea Market. The sideboard is the perfect setting for a Chanukah display. One problem: we have a toddler, and he can reach the top of it. I needed to figure out some toddler-proof holiday decorations, stat!
Chanukah may be lacking in the jolly department. After all, it’s not the most important Jewish holiday. But don’t you wish there was some kind of yuletide fun for the Jews to enjoy too? Well, let me introduce you to Kris Kringlestein.
It’s Thanksgiving Week, and in my house, that means Black Friday is coming. For me, Black Friday doesn’t really happen unless it’s a Target Black Friday. Any good shopper knows that if you’re in Target on Black Friday, you must check any online deals before you purchase an item in the store. You are likely to find free shipping and possibly a cheaper price for the same item.
I can’t wait to tell you about the Healthy Holiday Giveaway from Greenshield Organic and Green Piñata Toys. Greenshield Organic is the first line of USDA certified organic cleaning products. See that black circle on top of the label in the picture above? That’s how you know something is really, truly organic. Many products claim to be natural, but that term is not regulated, and anyone can make “natural” claims. Green Piñata Toy Share is a toy rental service, and it’s seriously the best idea, ever. I hate toy clutter. I love watching my son have fun with his toys, but as soon as he goes to bed, his toys go in bins and out of my sightline. Also, most toys are really ugly, and my kid can lose interest pretty quickly. Green Piñata solves these problems for you. By essentially renting toys, Green Piñata helps you keep down the clutter with beautiful, wooden, age-appropriate toys.
Raise your hand if you feel a 1-year-old baby would make a better president than either of the two front runners. Well, that was our sentiment when we came up with our son’s 1st birthday theme. I made my healthy smash cake for babies (though, to be honest, I switched out the healthy frosting for the real stuff this time).
