Easy & Delicious Side Dish: Carrot Fries

As a mom, I love finding fun new ways to incorporate veggies into our meals.  My kids love french fries and carrots, so I figured why not give carrot fries a try! Also, it's super easy and you can prep ahead and just toss and bake!

"What's it Like? Wednesday" 3 Kids?!

Hello readers!  I am happy to announce, I have decided to start up a new middle of the week chat.  These chats will be called "What's It Like? Wednesday".  Why, the name?  Well, it's easy. Although I have experienced quite a few things in my life (kids, marriage, jobs, college, etc.), there is so much I have yet to or will never experience (i.e. having a sibling), so in my attempt to broaden my knowledge and be able to better raise my family, I turn to you, my readers, for the honest real-life confessions of your experiences of such things.  I truly hope you enjoy these chats and most of all I look forward to your input.

So, for my first "What's It Like? Wednesday", I am asking:

Boudreaux's Butt Paste: BlogHer 2013!

This year will be the first year I will be attending BlogHer!  Not only am I thrilled to experience this awesome conference for the first-time, but my excitement has grown since finding out I will be given the opportunity to have a meet-n-greet with the founder of Boudreaux's Butt Paste!  As a mom of two little ones, I am more than aware of diaper rashes and the many types of creams out there to heal and prevent them.  I have tried a ton, and there are very few that work, but Boudreaux's is one of those few that works perfectly for us!  I'll be writing more about my experience meeting the founder, but for now, here is some information about them and their products:

Happy 4th of July! Real Kids Shades Review and Giveaway!

Nothing says summer like the 4th of July!  And what accessory makes you think of summer more than sunglasses?!  As a kid, sunglasses were just a fun accessory that we wore without any thought or planning. Now that has changed, as we have learned the importance of providing safe and reliable protection for our eyes from the Sun.  As a parent, I am not only responsible for protecting my eyes, but also those of my children.  That's where Real Kids Shades come in!

About Real Kids Shades (source: www.realkidsshades.com):

Doctor Recommended
Real Kids Shades are the doctor recommended sunblock you can apply directly to your kids’ eyes. They’re made with shatterproof, impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses because it’s the best stuff kids’ sunglasses can be made from. Our Xylex frames are super light and durable while our TPE frames are extremely flexible and bendable. Our wrap-around frames minimize exposure to harmful peripheral light. Opticians can even fit some of our styles with prescription lenses. These are just a few of the reasons why doctors like Real Kids Shades.
