What You Need When Camping With Kids

What You Need When Camping With Kids

Although camping season is just about over, it doesn’t hurt to plan ahead and be prepared, especially if you’re in the PNW where the weather is iffy at any point in time. We didn’t get a chance to camp a whole lot this year for obvious reasons, but we did do a couple of camp trips at Goose Lake and another in a yurt at the beach

Both of those trips usually end up in overpacking stuff that we may need but don’t really end up using. So for our second trip, we ended up buying a hardshell rooftop cargo carrier to put on our Subaru Outback since we filled the back to the brim and then some the first time. Let me tell you, this made all of the difference in the world, even if it was a big chunk of change to drop on another item that’s going to take up space in the garage.

Things You Can Do to Boost Your Immune System Before and After a Pandemic

Since we’re all being affected by this pandemic scare that has some of us panicking, I figured I would share some tips to help keep your immune system up. This is NOT medical advice and I don’t claim to be a doctor. This is healthy living advice.

There has been so much conflicting information, but one thing I have gathered about this new strain of Coronavirus is that it can’t survive over 60 degrees heat. So enjoy the sun and warm beverages like tea and honey.

Early Learning With Priddy Books

My daughters love books so I had to jump on this opportunity, especially since Delilah is 2 now and eager to learn and absorb information all of the time. Priddy books are great for younger ages because they have bright colors, fun images and some have texturized pages to heighten all senses. Even my 5-year-old was wanting to check them out with her sis and then decided to hoard a few! View Post

World Breastfeeding Week: My Breastfeeding Journey Is Ending

World Breastfeeding Week: My Breastfeeding Journey Is Ending

Although World Breastfeeding Week ends today, I wanted to hop on here and talk about my experience thus far as a breastfeeding mom. You can check out my previous post here and here when I first started and get a little back story.

If I knew then what I knew now, I think my story would be a little different. I feel like I was almost sabotaging myself with my breastfeeding journey as a new mom. But, I have also learned that what I was experiencing could have also been related to an overall bad latch and tongue tie since she would always make a clicking sound while latching. Arya’s jaundice level didn’t help either since she could never stay awake to feed which was hindering my milk supply and then I supplemented.

I think I’ve talked a couple of times about my psoriasis issues on Instagram, but it’s not something I really dive deep into here on my blog. I only have a mild case, but it’s enough of an issue to drive me crazy at times, which leaves me feeling helpless because I have no idea how to manage it. Mild, to me, is the occasional flare-ups in a few different areas on the body that are small in size. I get psoriasis patches on my elbows, knees, left ring finger, and the back of my head, which itched so bad one time that it caused me to lose hair in that spot.
