    Snack Time with Quinn

    This post is sponsored by Quinn Snacks but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. Through a series of elimination diets for myself and my eldest daughter, we discovered that gluten was not on our list of “friendly food” items. Not kidding, it took over a year to figure out that gluten, and also too much pasteurized dairy products, were at the root of my daughters horrible case of eczema. And when I mean horrible, I mean, whole body eczema. Not only did she have discolored rough patches in all of the “typical” locations eczema tends to appear, her whole body felt like sandpaper. She had patches on her…

    Your Health At Your Fingertips – I took an At-Home Food Sensitivity Test and here’s what I thought

    Disclaimer – I was given the Food Sensitivity Test by Everlywell in exchange for my honest review. The thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.  Let me tell you a little story…. I grew up playing soccer, riding horses, eating what every other normal person ate, with no issues. I was healthy. When I was 19, I had a sports related knee injury, requiring surgery. A week post surgery, I found myself back in the hospital with a severe infection, requiring a PICC line in my arm for daily rounds of IV antibiotics. I recovered just fine, so I thought. In the months and years that followed, I had…

    A Romantic Floral Nursery

    My sweet little Evie spent her first 8 months of life living out of a pack and play, so her nursery is special to both of us! She arrived just weeks before selling our home, moving temporarily in with my parents, and then moving to our new (fixer upper) home in Florida. When we finally were able to put together her room I was beyond thrilled!! I mean, it’s still not completely finished, but I was too excited not to share! 🙂

    Travel Approved: The Perfect Day Trip Diaper Bag

    This post is sponsored by JJ Cole but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. We’ve been lucky enough to go to Disney twice so far this year. The first time was completely on a whim, so absolutely no preplanning, crazy I know. The second time I had a bit more time to plan ahead and bring everything I wish I had the first go round. We are an active family and I travel with the kids pretty frequently, but I have to say a trip to Disney is a great gauge for the durability and versatility of any kid product!   One of the things I wish I…

    Easy Toddler Meals for Busy Families

    This post is sponsored by Happy Family Brands but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. I can’t believe I am sharing my little Evie girl eating big girl food! I mean, I basically just brought her home from the hospital! Eating healthy has always been a priority for me, especially now that I have kids. We try to eat organic and non-GMO whenever possible – I follow the Dirty Dozen List on items we try to always get organic. But, we are also really busy. We all know that eating healthy can be a real challenge for busy families – especially when you have kids sensitive to…

    Father’s Day + JORD Watches

    Somehow, I always manage to be shocked every time a holiday or annual event “shows up” on my calendar – like really, who put that there?! Well, Father’s Day is right around the corner and I’m happy to say I am actually aware of it more than 48hrs in advance. Step 1, right?! Now for the gift giving… I’m lucky in the fact that my hubby is super low key and never truly asks for anything – but this is partly why I LOVE giving him gifts. He is always genuinely surprised and incredibly appreciative [shameless “I love my hubby” plug] so I love upping the ‘wow’ factor and finding things that…

    Getting into the Holiday Spirit + JORD Watch Giveaway

    Happy December! If it wasn’t for my mom last minute inviting G and I to go Christmas tree shopping after church one Sunday, I literally may not have gotten one. Ok, ok, that may or may not not be entirely true. I honestly love Christmas, it’s just been hard for me to really get into the Holiday spirit this year with “the” move coming up and my hubby away at training and decorating/gift shopping has definitely NOT been on my radar. Poor hubs missed Thanksgiving and will miss Christmas with us as well. Of course, time marches on, and so will we. We are nearing the end though, and that light at…
