Finding Time For Adventure

This post was sponsored by Tai Pei and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Each and every day should have an element of adventure, excitement, and inspiration. I truly believe that these things can be found and created no matter what you are doing, where you are, or what your life currently looks like. Making time for adventure may be easier than you have thought – but just like anything, you have to want to find it in order to experience it! My family and I are big believers in making family adventures very real in our lives and you can break away from the mundane and do it too!

How To Make Your Summer Days Super Sweet

Summer is a blast! Summer is one of the times that absolutely everyone is looking forward to all year long, but once it’s here, are we making the best of it? Kids are out of school – but don’t let their cries of boredom stop you all from having the best summer season yet! I want to share with you some ways to make the best of each day that you can as a family this year. This summer is bound to be memorable & super sweet! Are you with me?

How To Have A Productive Mom Break

If you are like me, nap times are the only mom breaks that happen during the day & the amount of STUFF I have to cram into 2 hours (if I’m lucky!) is crazy. I have realized that when I look at nap time as a time for me to do alllll the boring things, I tend not to be as productive. Instead, I’ve changed my mindset. Nap time is ME time & I am going to maximize the potential of those few hours to be as productive as possible, while still treating myself to a well-deserved MOM BREAK.

Treat Yourself with MILKA OREO Chocolate Candy (+ $25 Walmart Giveaway!)

I am a huge sweets lover and the type of person that needs to end their day (or start it) with some kind of chocolatey goodness. There is nothing better to me than a great treat after a long day of being a mama & I know that other moms are with me on that one. The long running joke about moms sneaking chocolate when their kids can’t see them? Yep. That’s totally me. One of our families favorite desserts is Oreo cookies, so when I saw that MILKA and OREO made a line of candy, I couldn’t resist. It’s pretty amazing & you should definitely #TryOREOChocolate!

Add Some Greens, Mama

I know that I don’t need to go into a rant all about how eating healthy is the most important thing we can do for our families – we all know it’s the truth. The reality, however, is that we find ourselves in a place where it isn’t always easy to do so & then throw in how picky the littles can be & all of a sudden the house can become a snack-haven instead of a fresh kitchen. This month, I wanted to take some time to refresh my outlook on what we were putting in our bodies. I wanted to make sure that we were adding delicious & exceptionally great nutrition into our everyday meals! I have always been interested in juicing so we got the chance to try out the Veestro Juice Cleanse!

EAT: LuLu’s Gulf Shores, Alabama

We DID it. We made it to Gulf Shores, Alabama & we are so happy that this is the first stop on our journey! The town is absolute perfection. We are right along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico (and are joking a lot that it looks like home!) But the beaches are stunning, the weather is just right, and the people could not be sweeter. Southern hospitality at it’s finest around here. Speaking of impeccable hospitality, we had the treat of dining out at LuLu’s Gulf Shores for lunch & cannot wait to share it with you!

Cooking Homemade Meals When You Can’t Cook

When I say, I’m not a cook… I mean that. I’m totally guilty of searching on Pinterest for things like, “How to cook for my family when I don’t want to cook?” Anyone else totally with me? I am not very comfortable in the kitchen and going to the grocery store is one of those tasks that (especially with kids) just haunts me throughout the week. I’m all for eating good food. In fact, I’d say I’m pretty good at that! 😉 I am stoked to share with you a service that has made cooking so much easier and even (dare I say it) more fun! This mama needed some help in this department, so I’m sharing 5 reasons why Dinner Thyme is perfect for me!
