Coming soon…

Closing out the year strong!

It’s the end of the year, which is always our busiest life season! We tend to run ourselves into the ground and spend much of flu season (plus some) sick. Yes, this is life constantly live around hundreds of teenagers, but this year I’m already getting a jump start on our wellness, trying to keep my body in line!

1. Water. Water. Water. I love coming up with fancy ways to improve my overall wellness, but no fancy potions seem to do it like drinking more water. Today for instance, it’s become very clear I didn’t drink enough yesterday because I’m SO DRY. I just listened to multiple seminars (by professionals) about the benefits of water and I think I will never tire of hearing the incredible way our bodies work and how much we need to have for a simple glass (or twelve) of water!2. The second suggestion made toward overall health during these same seminars (literally following water) was probiotics! I have to tell you that probiotics and I have had a love/hate relationship through the years. I use to have a brand I trusted, but they sold to a bigger company and it’s really never been the same. I dated around, but just got left with stomachaches on my already sensitive stomach…. until I met the fermented mushroom goodness & pre-pro-post-biotics combination of  Dr. Ohhira’s Original Probiotics. There are many other wonderfully scientific reasons why these enzymes and amino acid containing pills are good for you, which you can read about here because it’s fascinating!!

I’ve had less stomach issues than I have in a long while the past few months with my water + probiotic combination. I’m hopeful that I’ll make it through the holidays without a doctors visit! Now that the kids are more aware of how different foods make them feel, they are seeing improvement after taking probiotics too!

Choices Matter!

I received this educational information and assets from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.

This past year, the phrase “choices matter” has been a huge theme for our family. Having a teen and almost-teen in the house, it’s important that they learn early how to predict outcomes from their decisions, and learn how planning ahead helps you make better choices in the moment!

When Moms Meet asked me to partner with them & Plan Against Pain for the Choices Matter campaign, teaching women to plan ahead, especially when it comes to making non-opioid pain relief choices after childbirth – I knew this was providence!

Did you know that most mothers believe that opioids are unsafe to take during and after childbirth, and yet 51% are prescribed them during that time? With one in three women having C-sections, its important that women don’t just shrug off the need for a frank conversation about the current drug crisis in America – no one is untouchable when it comes to opioid abuse. Addiction does not discriminate!

Choices Matter has created revolutionary plans, built specifically for women to find non-opioid relief both during and after childbirth. (I also highly recommend their plans for anyone with upcoming surgery or procedures that will involve pain management! They offer  ideas for men, too!) I would LOVE  to see more mothers at the forefront of fighting the opioid crisis by empowering other women to choose non-opioid options for pain relief! Take the #onelesspill pledge with me HERE.

Summer Tresses: An Oasis In The Desert

I’ve always had very dark hair, so parenting two blondes has come with a new set of hair challenges. Everything stains their hair. Once, Ever laid on a pink pillow case and her hair was hot pink (only on her neck area) for weeks. The pool turns their heads into green, unruly haystacks. Blonde tresses are no joke during the summer since they also seem to dry out easily!

Dessert Essence is the first company to bring Jojoba oil to the marketplace and it’s one of the ingredients in their incredible products! We’ve been using Desert Essence this summer to combat all of our issues in one go. No more dry, green, brittle hair.

Closer

I genuinely can not imagine our life without these two being 13 months apart. People hardly notice anymore, that they are so close in age, while it was ever so obvious when they were they were babies.

They spend a lot of their day together, mostly good, but when they get in trouble it’s always enhanced. (Like when they were dressed to go out last week, but both somehow ended up in the sprinklers completely drenched.)

It’s really important that I never laugh when they’ve done something terrible, no matter how funny. Once they get a laugh, you can’t win.
