Get Well Kit for Kids (and Target giveaway)

Written in partnership with Target. Any opinions are my own.

I hate when I get sick. Okay, I know no one enjoys being sick, but does a mom ever REALLY get to be sick?! I work from home with 2 toddlers at my feet. There is no “sick.” It’s even worse when my kids don’t feel well—seeing them suffer is heartbreaking.

When you get sick, no matter how old you are, you want your mom, right?! Because she knows how to comfort and take care of you… she babies you. I know I baby

Natural Seasonal Relief with Butterbur from Zarbee’s

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Zarbee’s Naturals. I received a promotional item and a product sample as a thank you for participating.

At this point, I’m just going to go ahead and say that we’re a Zarbee’s home! From cold and cough to sleep and now seasonal relief. You know I like to talk about products here that I can stand behind—that we actually use—and Zarbee’s is one of those. I’ve met them in-person and we’ve used most of their products.

~Written in a partnership with FertaMax. Any opinions are my own.

Workouts to do with your kids!

One of my goals for 2014 is to lose about 5 to 10 pounds. After 2 babies, I’m still about that far away from my pre-pregnancy weight and our youngest turns TWO next month! I think I’ve held onto the baby weight long enough. Time to say goodbye!

We have a gym membership and I need to start going more often (with help from these motivational quotes!) I also want to improve our meal planning. When meals are planned each week, I snack less. I also plan healthier meals
