Playtex VentAire and Drop-Ins Bottles


This post is sponsored by Playtex.  All opinions are 100% mine.  Over the years as a mom, I have tried several bottles for my kids.  While I wish I could have breast fed normally, it didn't work out for me.  Instead, I pumped and then fed my babies via a bottle.  I'm so thankful that they were able to get breast milk, but I learned that sometimes bottle feeding can be a real pain.  Finding a … [Read more...]

Younique 3D Fiber Lashes ~ Does it Really Work?

Younique mascara

A friend of mine became a Younique presenter and asked if I would be willing to try the 3D Fiber Lashes.  I jumped at the chance because I have seen them all over social media lately and people are raving about them.  My husband has beautiful long lashes that I am envious of.  Luckily my kids inherited that from him.  All day long I get to stare all their beautiful long lashes.  I decided I wanted … [Read more...]

Our #SIMPLEGiving Book Drive ~ Little Steps Can Make a Huge Difference

I participate in this program on behalf of Champions for Kids and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

Most recently when we visited the mountains we camped by Lake Cascade and went fishing with my parents. It was Jonah and Caroline's very first boat ride. Jonah thought he would catch a … [Read more...]
