Posted by on Mar 31, 2014 in Be Informed, Be Whole, Featured Posts, Green Living, Healthy Moms, Looking Home, Savvy Advice | 0 comments

About a month ago I walked into my friend Karen’s house and exclaimed, “What’s that AMAZING smell?  Am I going to get a massage?”  It was her essential oil diffuser spreading a whole lot of incredible lavender and peace and calming love into the room…..and I couldn’t get enough.  Later that weekend we rubbed a...

Butternut Squash {Healthier!} Mac&Cheese

Ah, macaroni and cheese, the dish loved by kids across America…..mine included!

Roasted Vegetables

Well, winter up here in Michigan has been BRUTAL. So far we’ve endured 20+ inch dumps of snow (multiple times!), sub-zero temps and a sci-fi-sounding weather emergency called a polar vortex. Obviously, I’ve dealt with all this craziness hiding under a warm blanket eating my weight in cheese. Who wants to eat salad in...

What you need to know about Vitamin D

After sending my son off to preschool in his winter jacket this morning, I’ve come to accept the fact that summer is finally over, here in Michigan. The leaves are turning, the air is crisp, I’ve taken the fleece blankets out of the closet….and I’ve been thinking about how to maintain a healthy lifestyle when the days...

When we were chosen by the Mom It Forward Blogger Network to write a sponsored post for PetArmor, I grabbed it. No, I’m not a vet, but I’ve got two really important reasons for...

Posted by on Sep 11, 2013 in App Love, Be Inspired, Be Whole, Healthy Moms | 0 comments

When I signed up to run the Best Buy sponsored 5K at BlogHer back in July, I knew there just may be some perks attached to it. However, I didn’t expect to walk away with one of these…a FitBit Flex! At first, I thought it was a glorified pedometer (sorry FitBit), but after wearing it every day since late July, I have...

A Healthier {and cute!} School Birthday Treat

I consider this bumblebee birthday treat to be my first mom triumph of the school year. This is my son’s second year in preschool and with an early September birthday, I felt a little rushed and a little bit apprehensive about him having “the first birthday” of the year. Also, his school really frowns on super...

What Makes You Smile? Kids, Vacations, and Healthy Teeth!

Thanks to FlossAndBrush.com for sponsoring this reminder to look for things that make us smile! My family spent the entire last week in a cottage about two blocks from Lake Michigan. It was the perfect week to be at the beach; hot, sticky, but with just enough breeze to keep the sand flies at bay. lake water was a balmy 75 degrees, and we even had...

Acquarella…natural nail polish, that works!

Acquarella…natural nail polish, that works!

I really think feet are pretty disgusting.  They’re not cute or sexy and should never be examined up-close unless you have a medical problem or something. But, even though I think feet are gross, I respect them, I think they should be taken care of and perhaps even decorated a little bit….with nail polish. When my pursuit for more...
