Keeping a Clutter-Free Kids Room with Creative QT!

I received these items from Creative QT in exchange for a review. As always, opinions are honest & my own.

My 3 and 6 year old share a bedroom, and keeping it clean can often be an uphill battle. Our recent move gave me the opportunity to organize and sift through a lot of treasures junk the girls had acquired, in hopes of a bit of a fresh start in our new place.

So far they’ve kept the room on the up and up (gloooooory!!), but one area was still a huge issue until recently.

The stuffed animals!!! Ahhhhhh!!!

My girls have A LOT of stuffed animal friends (this is paired down…eek!), and until now they have been in hiding behind their beds. 

I was at a bit of a loss (we’ve tried that whole hanging net thing and it was a bust), until our Stuff ‘n Sit from Creative QT arrived!

A Smart and Sneaky Veggie Option for Your Picky Eater

This post is sponsored by Happy Family Brands but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

If you’ve been following me for a while on here or Instagram, you’ve surely been entertained by tales of my 3 year old, #LilytheThreenager.

A true threenager in every way, she’s been giving me a run for my money with everything from a general ‘tude, protesting sleep, and the struggle that is mealtime. 

As moms we all have our sticking points, and the fight that ensues over dinner (especially where anything  healthy is involved), can drive me crazy!! I know she won’t starve, but I want to see her expand her palette beyond her beloved pb and honey sandwiches. 😉

She is as stubborn as she is sassy, but now that we’ve discovered the Happy Tot Love My Veggies Bowl, I see a breakthrough on the horizon!

CBR & the Big Decision We’re Considering for Baby #3!

This post is sponsored by Cord Blood Registry ® (CBR ®), but the opinions expressed here are my own.

In about 6 weeks (or less!) I’ll be holding a new bundle of joy in my arms. It’s hard to believe that the time is fast approaching, but I’m beyond excited to welcome baby #3 to the family!!

Dress C/O Pink Blush

In many ways this pregnancy has been very similar to my previous ones, but in some ways I feel like I’m experiencing things for the first time. There’s always something new to learn, a better product or invention, and more knowledge to grow in.

One big difference is that for the first time I’m seriously considering preserving my newborn’s stem cells with Cord Blood Registry (CBR).

3 Ways to Power Up Your Morning Routine

This post is sponsored by Ancient Nutrition, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

I have never been a morning person, and although many people have said that will change after having kids that hasn’t been the case. Do I have to get up earlier because of my little rugrats? Yes. But do I thrive in the morning and do so with glee? Generally speaking, no. Haha.

In spite of the struggle, I want to maximize my mornings to the best of my ability. So I’ve asked the strongest mother I know (my mommy of course) how she powers up in the morning, and these are her top 3 suggestions!
