Safe Cleaning with Bona Free & Simple

 Spring is in the air (although we had snow flurries just 2 days ago) and I am all about cleaning out and cleaning up! There is something so refreshing about a neat and clean home, and something that gets messy everyday is a whole lot easier to keep clean with Bona Free and Simple floor cleaner. 

Now that Rowen is mobile, anything on the floor is up for grabs. Which means I need to pay attention to detail and clean the floors more often. With Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner, I know I'm using the best product not only for my hardwood floors, but also for my little ones feet and hands to be crawling all over. There are no added dyes or scents that are harmful to them and I love to know I'm using a safe and effective product for cleaning.

  • Nontoxic formula that is safe for the littles ones in your life and safe for our planet
  • Asthma and allergy friendly
  • Safe for wood floors
  • Greenguard Gold Certified

Peace, Love, & Pi

Sponsored Post: This post is sponsored by Edwards Pies. As always, the review is my own personal experience with the product and is not edited by the Sponsor.

We all know that love makes the world go 'round, and sweet treats keep our littles ones happy! To celebrate national Pi Day, I decided to pick up an Edwards Desserts Pie and have a tea + pie party with my oldest. Hadley became a big sister over the summer and it's brought on changes and adjustments for everyone, but she's done such a great job. Often times when her little sister is napping I tend to rush around to take a shower or get house work done, but today I decided to do something a little different and the one on one time plus delicious pie was totally worth it!

Hadley was so excited to play with her tea set which was mine as a child and indulge in some chocolate deliciousness! It was good for me to take a step back, and soak up my sweet 3 year old. If anything, I felt like this day was helping me find peace within, peace in the middle of chaos - something we all need to have! So thank you Edwards Desserts for helping me help myself, and for making dessert so easy, convenient, and tasty!

Giving A Personalized Gift

3 reasons I love giving personalized gifts:

  1. Unexpected. I love receiving personalized gifts which is probably why I love to give them! They are unexpected, and so thoughtful. When I've giving a personalized gift whether it be an engraved bracelet, embellished frame, DIY craft from the kiddos.. it always catches the receiver by surprise, and everyone loves surprises! :)
  2. Timeless. Personalized gifts are so great for dates like wedding dates or a birthday. Something with a date on it won't go out of style, it's a great keepsake that anyone would cherish. 
  3. Support small business. Shopping small is crucial! It's good for the small business owner and also good for our economy. I love to support shops that not only are small, but also local! It's so fun going to local craft fairs or pop up shops to see the talented business owners and creative artist in our local and surrounding communities! 

A shop I highlighted previously was Curly Willow Collections. Here is another great and personalized item from the shop, a keepsake pillow with our last name and anniversary! LOVE THIS! Vicki, the owner, is creative and always willing to work together to create the perfect customized gift.

I'm Hooked on Veggies with Garden Lites

I love veggies, but more than that, I love sweets! We have a lot of treats in our household, but the vegetables are seldom, mainly because I'm the only one who likes eating them. I've always been a veggie lover, but my husband and my 3 year old won't come close to anything green. Actually, my 3 year old does better than he does haha! Veggies can be difficult to sneak into their diet, so when I was introduced to Garden Lites Muffins, I was ecstatic to try them myself & hide the veggies for my family members!

The Ingredients
The first two ingredients on the ingredient label are vegetables! They are gluten free, dairy free, and nut-free and are packed with good foods like zucchini and carrots! They're also high in fiber and grains. I recognize and can pronounce everything on the ingredient list and that's always a good thing!

The Taste
But the best part of these healthy muffins, is that they don't taste like healthy muffins at all! They taste SO good, the chocolate is rich and sweet and the blueberry oat is fresh and delicious. I popped them in the microwave for breakfast and couldn't believe how tasty both flavors were! They taste just like "regular" muffins, without all of the other bad ingredients. These muffins will be a staple in our house from here on out, for breakfast with a cup of coffee, lunch, afternoon snack, or even before bedtime. They're also great for busy mornings or on the go, heat it up and take it with you!

Where Can You Find Them
I found my Garden Lite Muffins at Kroger! They can be found in the frozen section of your local Costco, HEB, Shop-Rite, Publix, Kroger, Stop & Shop, and Giant. I suggest buying in bulk, they don't last long in our house! CLICK HERE to find a store near you!

There are also other flavors like Carrot Berry, Banana Chocolate Chip (really want to try this one), and also fun ones for the kids like Ninja Power, and Chocolate Krabby!

As a Mom of two, I've tried my fair share of products for both mamas + babies. I'm sort of a product junkie, always trying something new until I find exactly what I'm looking for, and I have to LOVE it! Here are some products that I love, that will benefit you if you're a mom-to-be, shopping for a shower gift, or if you're already a mama and just looking for something new to try. These products won't disappoint!

Munchkin Products
  • The Step Diaper Pail is the perfect addition to any nursery, it features maximum odor control, a self sealing system, and it locks in odors after each use. It also has a child-lock system which is great when you have curious older siblings (we know nothing about that in our house)! 
  • The new Miracle Stainless Steel 360 promotes dental health for toddlers, and keeps their beverages cold for 15 hours! This is perfect for out and about, keeping their water cold while running errands or traveling in the car for long periods of time. These will really come in handy when the weather heats up as well and when we're in Florida later this year. The cup is also spill-proof - YAY! 
  • The Shine Stainless Steel Bottle Brush is sleek and modern, I love the look of this bottle cleaner. The brush is easily bendable to reach all areas of bottles and bottle nipples. The nipple brush is kept inside the handle, and the entire brush has a suction base that will keep it upright on your kitchen counter, away from germs. 
  • The innovative Latch Bottle was designed to mimic the breast, helping baby have a successful feeding with every use. This bottle helps transition from breast to bottle, and after having a hard time finding a bottle for my 6 month old to use (who is mostly breastfed), this worked for her the first time she tried it! The bottle pumps like a breast as pressure from baby sucking releases milk from the bottle and it has a valve that reduces bubbles (helping with colic and gas). We love this bottle!

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Rich Cream
When my first daughter was born I put my needs on the back burner, and now after my second is here.. things are still that way. I'm usually too tired in the evening to wash my face and don't usually apply any lotion in the mornings or ever at all. My skin is dry, dull, and flaky in the winter months. This 48 hour Aqualia Rich Cream Moisturizer is perfect for busy moms like me, ones that are too forgetful [or sleepy] to remember to moisturize. It's paraben free and locks in moisture so you don't have to use it daily, although you can if you desire. This cream helps balance water where it is lost in the skin, and rejuvenates creating brighter, more plump looking skin. It's oil-free so your skin won't feel greasy, but it leaves a soft, velvet like finish.
