    My favorite time of the season- FabFitFun time! I seriously look forward to the arrival of this box every 3 months or so. It always makes my day and is filled with the best stuff.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: FabFitFun is such a treat. As a busy mom, I don’t often like to spend too much money on things for myself. But every few months I get a box full of high quality goodies just for me and I love it! That’s the beauty of subscription boxes.

    Let’s dive right in to what comes in the Summer Box!

    Friday Favorites -Forté Elements and Ecocentric Mom

    If I hit “publish” on this before midnight, I can still call it a Friday Favorites post, right? This week has been nothing short of disappointing, crazy, busy, scary, and every other emotion you can think of. I’ll do a quick pregnancy update next week but basically, last weekend I started showing the beginning signs of preeclampsia and have been on a modified bed rest ever since. I haven’t been diagnosed with anything yet, thank goodness. We’re hoping if I rest and take it easy we can avoid big blood pressure spikes. We’ll see. Keep me in your prayers!

    You guys, my little brother is getting married this summer.

    8 days after my due date to be exact (thanks, bro). It’s been so crazy and I feel so old! We all love his fiance and the wedding plans have been in full swing since Christmas. It’s going to be such a great day.

    As with any wedding, they want to save money wherever possible. I was thrilled to offer them the chance to shop the brand new Marry Me collection by Oriental Trading. They were able to shop the new collection and pick out a few personalized and unique things they needed for their wedding. We were so pleased when the items arrived. They were all affordable, yet great quality, and the shipping was fast!

    Maximize Your Child’s Education with Snapology (+ a Giveaway!)

    There’s not much that’s more important than your child’s education. We all want to make sure our children learn and thrive and are given the best opportunities possible. Unfortunately, with today’s economy, budget cuts in school districts are limiting children’s education more and more.

    I watch Sawyer learn everyday and I am amazed. At only 2 years old he absorbs information like a sponge. He learns new words and phrases all the time. He remembers faces, names, places, and more. He knows animal noises, colors, shapes, and more words than I can count. He is able to mimick our language and knows a new word daily. Watching him learn is absolutely thrilling and I hope he continues to thrive for the rest of his childhood.

    Ah, Summer.

    My absolute favorite time of year. I made it a goal to make sure that we had fun and relaxed this summer. We spent all Winter completely cooped up, not only due to the weather, but due to one of our cars being out of commission, we literally hardly ever left the house! That took a serious toll on me both mentally and emotionally. It’s no good for your mental health to be inside all day! Now that we have another car for a little while and the weather is great, I really want to make sure we are active and outdoors!
