    Happy Friday! This week has been a crazy one. My best friend is getting married tomorrow! It’s going to be a great weekend, I’m really excited.

    I’ve got the rehearsal dinner tonight but before I leave I wanted to share a few fun products with you! I love supporting small businesses and sharing products I’ve found useful. I tend to be on the “crunchy” side and these oils and sippy cups are both great for you and the environment!

    Working at Home Mom Magic- The 3 Things I Can’t Live Without!

    As someone who runs a business out of their home, there are certain things I cannot compromise on.

    Working at home takes a lot of preparation, equipment, and patience. You have to prevent as many problems as possible, but also be prepared for things to go wrong. If I’m working on a deadline, I’d hate for the wifi to stop working or the power to go out. I don’t have time for that!

    There are 3 things that I could not live without while working at home!

    Bubbly Pomegranate Lemonade Mocktail

    Ah, pregnancy.

    One of the most stressful things a woman can go through, and yet, we take away her wine. It’s a cruel rule.

    I’ve also got a bit of a sweet tooth (plus a pretty intense ice craving), so sometimes I like to make fun mocktails!

    Today I’m sharing my recipe for Bubbly Pomegranate Lemonade here’s what you’ll need:

    The Best Maternity Swimsuits!

    Summer is just around the corner. I can’t believe how fast it’s approaching. One thing I dread about pregnancy is having to wear a swimsuit with a big belly. A regular bikini still fits but I can sometimes feel uncomfortable with my bump hanging out for all to see. It depends on the day!

    I love finding stylish maternity swimsuits to help me feel confident at the pool or the beach (even though I may be mistaken for a whale).

    So, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite maternity swimsuits this season for you to shop! I love a classy one piece, or even a tankini in a fun pattern! There are some cute bikinis too, I could never leave them out.

    Mommy Errands with Enterprise CarShare

    Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Enterprise CarShare. All opinions are my own. Visit my disclaimer page for more information.

    Like most families, we own two cars. But, unlike most families, we really only use one of them. One car is brand new (just drove it off the lot last August), runs great and we LOVE it. The other car I bought when I was in college, long before we were married, and that’s pretty much on its last leg. It runs, and since I mainly work at home blogging, we don’t need to drive it much.

    This works out for the most part since I’m pretty busy at home but I definitely go a little stir crazy sometimes. Sawyer and I don’t get to go on a lot of “adventures” because there’s not a ton close by and I don’t feel comfortable driving the scary car down into the city.

    Packing the Diaper Bag for 2 with JJ Cole

    There are lots of things I have to prepare for when it comes to going from 1 kiddo to 2. One thing I’ve been thinking about a lot is being out and about with them.

    The other day Kurtis, Sawyer, and I were our running a particular errand and things got a little stressful. One thing after another went wrong and it was just a long day. When we got home I said to him “can you imagine dealing with that but with two kids with us?”

    It kind of put things into perspective that things are about to get a lot more difficult around here.

    But it’s nothing we can’t handle with a little preparation!
