Nestlé Pure Life+ the Dog Days of Summer

This post is sponsored by Nestlé® Pure Life®+ but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.”

School is officially out for the summer!!!!! 

Homeschool 2020 (of the unexpected variety 😉 ) is done, and now we settle into another new rhythm. One I *mostly* look forward to, haha, with a greater sense of taking in the moments and practicing gratitude each day. Last summer felt hard, not because of my children, but because of the expectations I put on myself. This time, I want it to be different!

With my youngest being mobile and the weather still tolerable, lol, we are getting lots and lots of outdoor time!! We all love it and NEED it! I can feel the difference when I haven’t had my daily Vitamin D, and I can also feel that I’m not as limber as I used to be when I try to get down on my kids level to play. It doesn’t stop me, but I’m more inclined to be vigilant about staying hydrated and reaching for Nestlé® Pure Life®+ to drink!

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!

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!

For the Love of Nature: The Simple Way You Can Give Back to the WWF!

This post is sponsored by Kimberly-Clark Family Care Brands but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

I’ve been fascinated with nature, its unique ecosystems, and the beautiful wildlife that inhabits such diverse terrain for as long as I can remember. 

As a child I would frequently visit the library to check out books about animals and the environment. As a teenager I came very, very close to majoring in Environmental Science. And as a college student I had the marvelous opportunity to intern as a park ranger at Alaska’s Denali National Park & Preserve.

Needless to say, I’d love to see my girls take an interest in preserving our planet and its resources, and there’s a simple way we can do so as a family thanks to the Kimberly-Clark Corporation and Amazon!
