All opinions are mine alone. #AvengersUnite #CollectiveBias In our house, superhero movies are kind of a big deal. And superhero movies that feature several of our favorite heroes joining forces? Well, that's a SUPER big deal, so I have a few people in my house that are counting down the days until MARVEL's The Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives in theaters. This guy and his Daddy ...

Coconut Oat Crusted Fish Bites #SamsClubMag

This 30 minute recipe post has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SamsClubMag #CollectiveBias My husband has eaten the same breakfast every day for the past 5 years. A big bowl of old-fashioned oats and almond milk, topped with a healthy handful of walnuts and dried cranberries. When I tease him about being a creature of habit, he simply reminds me of his plan to live forever. In his mind, superfoods = superhero. Oats: a Superior ... [read more]

Pelvic Floor Weakness? Solve it with Apex (Giveaway)

Many woman find that before having children they can run up and down the stairs, do yoga, bounce on a trampoline and more without any problem. But after childbirth? Well, some of those activities can result in embarrassing "oops" moments. Not that I know anything about them... (Ok. I lie. I know all about them.) Believe it or not, bladder leakage is a common occurrence in approximately one third of the female population. However, just because it's common doesn't necessarily mean that it's ... [read more]

HopNRoll

New playwear that keeps up with your kids: @Gymboree #HopNRoll

Disclosure: A complimentary gift card was provided to facilitate this review. What I already knew about my children was only reinforced last weekend as we tried to go outside and take some photos of Gymboree's new Hop 'N' Roll line of playwear for kids. I believe it goes something like, "A child in motion tends to stay in motion." Yeah, true story. In fact, just about every photo opportunity I saw disappeared before I could catch it because these kids were ready to move. You can ... [read more]

Which-Mom-Do-You-want-to-be

The best self-reflection happens at Target.

It's a scene I've seen a million times, and a million times I've huffed and puffed and said "Hurry up, guys. Let's get going." (Not my best parenting.) But not yesterday. Yesterday, I realized I was being given a gift. I've been trying really hard to become a different kind of mom. A more present, slowed-down kind of mom. A more patient mom. And I think it might be working. What would I do without Target? Maybe I should go there more often... If this post speaks to you, please ... [read more]
