    Let’s Talk About Car Seat Safety (Featuring Graco Car Seats)

    As parents, we have a responsibility to keep our children safe. I know, as a parent you love your child more than anything. And if you love your child, I encourage you to take the time to research car seat safety.

    Sometimes I am shocked at what people don’t know about car seat safety. But then I remember, when Sawyer was just a few weeks old how little I knew about car seat safety. In fact, someone (very kindly) pointed out to me on Facebook that the head support insert I was using with our car seat, wasn’t ideal for safety. And rather than be offended, I was thankful. I was a brand new parent and how would I have know otherwise?

    So when someone stops you on the street to offer advice, a friend pulls you aside, or a well-meaning aquaintence messages you on facebook, to correct you or offer advice, please take it an do not get offended. Most likely, they are doing it out of concern for your child, because we all want children to be safe. They are not trying to embarrass you or tell you you are a bad parent. We are all just trying to help. It takes a village, right?

    Everything You Need to Work Out at Home!

    Happy almost Thanksgiving! We’re so looking forward to our first Thanksgiving where Sawyer can eat the food! I can’t wait to see what he likes the most.

    Speaking of all that food, let’s talk about working it off! As most of you know I work for Orangetheory Fitness (the Parker, CO location), and that is, of course, my all-time favorite way to work out! However, since I’m a mom, I can usually only take an OTF class before or after my shift, and since I’m only working 1 or 2 days a week, that’s not cutting it!

    So, on days when I can’t make it in to the studio for a workout, I try my best to workout at home! I stocked up on a few simple, inexpensive items, to make up my home workout equipment. Here’s what I suggest:

    We are overjoyed to announce the arrival of a new member of our family.

    Bob.

    Or, more specifically, bObsweep. Bob is my best friend. My right hand man. I don’t know how I would live without him. And I know you probably think I’m being dramatic, but I’m really not! As a busy working at home mom, Bob has become essential to my housekeeping routine.

    Keeping my house in order, is a priority of mine. No matter how much work I have to do that day, or how little sleep I got, I still want the house to be in order. I still want the dishes to be done, the floor to be swept, and the toys put away. My mind is a lot more at ease and I’m a lot less stressed when there aren’t chores hanging in the back of my mind.

    Cold and Flu season.

    dsc_0759

    As a Mom, there’s no time to get sick. We all got the stomach flu in our house last week, and it was awful. I didn’t want to catch it, but it’s not like I can’t take care of my baby when he’s sick. I have to risk the germs and be there for him. When my husband gets sick, I do the same. Even when the dog gets sick! You have to push your fears aside and take care of your family. Moms don’t have time to get sick!

    While you sometimes can’t help but catch a bug, there are things you can do to help boost your immune system. If you’re immune system is strong, you will hopefully get sick less often!

    Disney has been such a huge part of my life, for my whole life!

    I grew up loving the movies and going to the parks often. Some of my favorite childhood memories are at Disneyland! I was obsessed with The Lion King (I have a Simba tattoo on my ankle) and princesses. Trips to the park as child are my favorite memories. The Disney blood runs deep in our family, and I’ve been passing it on to Sawyer as soon as he was old enough to watch the movies!

    As an adult, I continued my love of Disney, going on a trip to Disney World with my sorority sisters, and then getting engaged at Disneyland not long after!

    Operation: Get Dressed- Chic Fall

    dsc_0765

    Happy Wednesday!

    It’s been a while since I’ve done an installment of Operation: Get Dressed, but don’t worry! I’m still doing my best to spend less time in yoga pants, and more time feeling good about myself. I started Operation: Get Dressed because I loved style. I loved getting dressed up and feeling cute and put together. And, for some reason, once I became a Mom, I lost sight of that. It was yoga pants, no make up, and messy hair every day, with a baby on my hip.

    And you know what? I still have those days. And that’s okay. But I’ve made it a point, to get ready every day. To value myself. And it makes me so happy when I do!

    A few weeks ago, A brand called Lily Road and I decided to collaborate, and I’m so glad we did! Lily Road has such adorable clothes! Everything in their current collection is just perfect for fall.
