In 1 week (give or take), we’ll be the parents of 2 little ones. It’s a little scary to think about.

Parents of two♡…

I’ll be honest, I’m rather nervous. Nervous about loving this one just as much as Arya, nervous about breastfeeding again since it was not a joyous time for me. Nervous about postpartum stress syndrome since I was angry at my husband all of the time. I’m not going to lie, It was hard.

When I was breastfeeding, I felt trapped, pained. You’re constantly cluster feeding tied to the couch… I simply felt alone.

DIY All Natural Cleaning Spray For Any Surface

DIY All Natural Cleaning Spray For Any Surface

The one thing that irks me is that some companies get away with not listing ALL or ANY of the ingredients on their products ingredients label because the FDA doesn’t require it. Why? Who knows. That’s why I don’t trust the FDA or much of anything from our government. Now that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re good or bad, but it does make you wonder why they don’t want to list them in the first place, especially when you’re dealing with chemicals that you’re breathing in and possibly touching with your skin. Because of this, I decided I was going make my own all natural cleaning spray.

Tasty Vegan Burritos From Alpha Foods

Tasty Vegan Burritos From Alpha Foods

This is a sponsored post with Alpha Foods on their new Alpha Burritos. I received Alpha Burritos for free as well as monetary compensation to review and write this post. As always, all opinions are my own and were not influenced in any way.

Back in the day, I could go through a 12 pack of frozen burritos in less than a week when I lived with my grandparents. Today, I rarely eat frozen burritos, but that doesn’t mean they still aren’t tasty, nor unhealthy.

Let’s just say I cook a little more from scratch. But, I could always use a quick and easy meal when I’m super busy, which is going to be me REAL SOON with the baby here in less than 3 weeks.

Now, if you know me, then you know I am a meat eater, but I am always open to trying to new things, even Vegan food options. I actually just tried the Alpha Vegan Burritos that come in 4 different flavors: Chick’n Fajita, Pizza, Philly Sandwich and Mexicali. They each have 11g of protein, are GMO-free and are 100% plant-based.

5 Things to Do in the Depoe Bay, Oregon, and Surrounding Areas

5 Things to Do in the Depoe Bay, Oregon, and Surrounding Areas

Before baby girl #2 arrived, I wanted to take a beach trip with just the 3 of us as a mini vacation because once she actually does arrive, we probably won’t be doing too much of anything, which seems to be the norm when you become a parent.

We set out our sights on Depoe Bay, Oregon area since we always head to Seaside, Oregon for it’s close proximity to us. Depoe Bay is a nice area and there’s plenty to do and see, even if you have to drive a little way north or south depending on preferences of activities.

We ended up staying the weekend at the Clarion Inn Surfrider Resort because you literally have the best view of the ocean as the hotel sits on a cliff. I was planning on taking some maternity photos on Fogarty beach, so the Surfrider Resort was the perfect spot to wind down for the night!

Bring Your Child’s Dried Out Play-Doh Back to Life With This Hack

Bring Your Child’s Dried Out Play-Doh Back to Life With This Hack

This post is sponsored by ReynoldsKitchens Quick Cut™ Plastic Wrap. All opinions are my own.

We love playing with play-doh at our home. But, sometimes my daughter doesn’t want to put it up right away or gets sidetracked with something else and then it completely dries out and gets crumbly after we both forget about it and it sits out too long. Well, instead of tossing it and buying more every time, bring your child’s dried out play-doh back to life! Unfortunately, I don’t have a miracle hack for the poop brown colored play-doh that you see here that happens when your child blends all the colors together after you tell them a million times not to. But if you’re experiencing dry play-doh, try this simple hack.
