You know the saying “this is why we can’t have nice things”? I’m pretty sure the reason behind that statement is always kids.

Kids destroy just about anything they touch. They’re messy. They spill. They get sick. How are you supposed to protect your nice things from them?

In short, you can’t. But there are some products out there that really keep things like this in mind and make cleanup easy.

I was so excited when I first heard that Colorado was getting a SeaQuest! We’ve been in need of a few more educational activities in the area and this seemed like the perfect addition.

SeaQuest is a chain of interactive aquariums making it’s way across the US! So far they have locations in Utah, Nevada, Texas, California, and now Colorado, with many more locations coming!

The Benefits of Hydrolyzed Collagen Powder in Your Coffee

I’m sure you’ve been hearing about it all over- hydrolyzed collagen powder.

Hydrolyzed collagen powder has been trendy for a while now. Everyone’s using it, putting it in their coffee, tea, water, even baked goods! And for good reason as collagen has so many amazing benefits.

Something else has been popular in the health world lately and that’s the keto diet. The keto diet consists of putting your body into a state of ketosis- in layman’s terms: depriving your body of most carbs and grains so that your body instead starts burning fat.

Moms, how long have you been rocking the Mom Car? I’ve been going on 3 years now and, let me tell you, the going can get rough!

Our family car was a splurge for us. We spent a little more than we wanted to because we really wanted something nice, safe, and good quality for our kids. Because of this, I wanted to make sure I kept the car clean and nice.

My kids had other ideas.

Carters Little Baby Basics featured by popular Denver lifestyle blogger, All Things Lovely

Preparing for their First Birthday with Carters Little Baby Basics

Disclaimer: This Little Baby Basics post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

Oliver is about to turn one and I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by. I am completely unprepared and overwhelmed by the idea of his first birthday.

Right now, he is in my absolute favorite infant stage. 9-12 months. It’s when they’re still “baby” enough to need you. They still like to cuddle. They still want to be rocked to sleep. They still nurse or drink from a bottle. But, they’re getting old enough to where they wave, dance, clap, interact, play, and maybe babble a few words. They’re interactive and fun but still cuddly babies.

Ebags Review: How to Pack Effectively for the Entire Family!

Packing is by far one of the most stressful parts of traveling as a family. As a Mom, I’m usually responsible for packing for myself, the kids, my husband, and even prepare everything for the dog while we’re away. It’s a lot.

I’ve found that having a system can really help with packing for everyone before a trip.

ThredUp Review: Shopping Secondhand for Great Deals

My ThredUp Review

I love finding great new additions to my wardrobe, and I’m a sucker for a great deal. Shopping secondhand I can often find great prices for much less- sometimes even with a designer label!

As I was revamping my spring and summer wardrobe, I knew I wanted to search ThredUP again. As we’ve been saving for a house and putting my husband through school, we like to save money wherever possible and I knew that by searing through ThredUP I could find quality pieces for much less.

When to Transition to DockATot Grand

Disclaimer: This post is in collaboration with DockATot. All opinions are my own. Please visit my disclaimer page for more information. 

It’s no secret that we love DockATot in our house. Oliver slept in one in between us in our bed basically since birth, and Sawyer has slept in his ever since we transitioned him out of a crib.

When Oliver started to get to big for his Deluxe, I was heartbroken! My baby was growing up. We tried letting the boys share our DockATot Grand for a while, and that was a no go. Sawyer is incredibly attached to it and didn’t like his brother sleeping in it, so we knew we needed another one!

Must Sees at Sea World San Diego

Disclaimer: Thank you to Sea World San Diego for providing media tickets for our day. All opinions are my own. 

We love to visit Sea World when we’re in San Diego! Sawyer loves animals. Especially sharks, so Sea World is a must see for us when we’re in the area. This trip in particular, we had already secured our tickets, when we all caught nasty colds! Sawyer had it the worst of all of us, he even got a cough that turned to croup so I didn’t want to overdo it, but I also didn’t want the tickets to go to waste!

He was starting to feel a lot better by the time our scheduled Sea World day rolled around, so we decided to go for it. He had such a great time last time we went to Sea World so we wanted to make sure we went if we could. but keep the day short, and only hit the must see exhibits so we didn’t tire him out too much. My husband was also skipping Sea World so it was going to be just me, alone at a them park with 2 kids (one of them an infant), and I didn’t want to wear myself out!

Spring Style with Ruthie Grace Boutique

Disclaimer: This post is in collaboration with Ruthie Grace Boutique. All opinions are my own.

I love when the weather starts getting warmer and spring starts to come out. Granted, I live in Colorado where it can be 70 degrees one day and 20 degrees the next, even in April, so I take all the warm spring days I can get!

Since I live in Colorado It’s cold usually October-May. Fall and Spring can be just as cold as Winter, so Summer is really the only truly warm season we get! Once the warm weather starts creeping in, I start preparing my wardrobe. I love switching out my sweaters for dresses and my boots for sandals, it’s the best time of the year!
