    I Headed Out To Wisconsin To Visit Organic Valley for the Organic Connection

    You guys have heard me talk about Organic Valley a bit on my site and a lot on my social media accounts. The truth is, I love them. I love them a lot more now after visiting them in Wisconsin for the Organic Connection: An UnSymposium.

    Teaching Homeschool Children To Channel Their Drama With Electives

    **I have partnered with 7 Sisters Homeschool to share information about their curriculum and resources. All opinions are my own–including that my kids are super dramatic.

    One of my favorite things in school were electives. When I chose to homeschool, I have to confess that I was a little concerned about the electives thing. Mini loves dancing and singing and acting and honestly, all things that are quite dramatic so when I saw that 7 Sisters Homeschool offered Drama as part of their curriculum, I may or may not have squealed with joy! I can finally teach Mini (and abc really) how to channel their drama into our curriculum via electives!

    Taking It Back To Basics With Basic Invite

    In a world where we send out virtual invitations for life, Basic Invite is taking things back to traditional invites with their custom paper.
    I’ve partnered with Basic Invites on this sponsored posting. All thoughts are my own.

    When was the last time you received a paper invitation to an event, namely a baby shower? I know that I sent them out for Mini’s baby shower and that’s about it. In her baby book, I have a copy of said invitation along with pictures of people celebrating the bump in my belly that eventually became her and she loves to flip through it. We live in the land of virtual now and as I look back at the other baby books I’ve yet to put together, I’m wishing I’d done paper invitations. And after seeing these beautiful ones from Basic Invite, I wish I had these!

    Aging Backwards with Annmarie Skin Care

    You guys can call me Benjamina Buttons because I’m looking younger and younger as I use my Annmarie Skin Care. This year when I was at ShiftCon (looking incredibly tired as I was traveling and conferencing with BC in tow) I met up with the ladies from Annmarie Skin Care and I loved everything they were talking about. I sampled their coconut body oil which is more luxurious than your average coconut oil while chatting away with them.

    Calling Fellow Pizza Lovers! Have You Tried MOD Pizza?

    We’ve driven past MOD Pizza many times without stopping then we finally did. Guys, they’re doing pizza different and I’m 100% here for it!!!

    I have a confession: Pizza is my favorite food. I’m a New Yorker and have high expectations of pizza so I typically go with what I know around Atlanta. Today Mini and I ventured out and tried MOD Pizza in Decatur.

    We were originally heading out to grab something from the grocery store and to get our nails done. The line at my new favorite salon was a bit long so we decided to grab some food. Signs I’m raising mini right: pizza is also her favorite food.

    Making Time For Self Care When You Have No Time

    Making time for self care is one of those things that’s “on trend” right now but for many of us, it’s a fleeting thought. Last night I had the conversation with a friend and fellow mom about what self care is being touting about on social media. You see people talking about “Just left a 83739 day cruise!!! #SelfCare” or “I just took a 485 mile hike and feel amazing!!! #SelfCare”. Yes, these numbers are inflated but you get what I mean.
