Clean Eating Shopping List

Clean Eating Shopping List

“Clean eating” is one of those new phrases that I’ve been hearing everywhere lately. Everyone seems to be cleaning up their diet, trying to eat less processed foods and more fresh and “whole” foods. The exact parameters might vary slightly from one person to the next about what makes a food “clean,” but the overall [...]

Chickpea and Peanut Butter Cookies (Clean and Gluten Free!)

Yes, you read that right. Chickpeas. And peanut butter. And they’re cookies. Mmmmm. I know what you’re thinking… chickpeas?! But please keep reading. I promise you won’t regret it. I’ve recently discovered “clean eating.” I completed a 30-day eating challenge where I cut out all processed foods, alcohol, artificial sweeteners, white sugar and white flour. [...]

Boba 3G Carrier Review

Boba 3G Carrier Review

I was given the opportunity to use and review the Boba 3G Carrier by the Boba Company this summer. We welcomed our second little boy, K, in March and with an active toddler in tow, I did a lot of babywearing this time around! When K was a newbie, I often used the Boba Wrap. [...]

Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was excited when I stumbled across this recipe on Pinterest for flourless chocolate chip cookies.

DIY Sensory Bottles for Little Ones

When I was a SAHM the first time around with B, I found myself chatting with other mama friends about things we could make to stimulate our little ones that didn’t include flashing lights and crazy sounds.

How I Survived the 4th Trimester

Even though being pregnant for nine months is quite enough (ask any pregnant mama), babies would really rather you be pregnant for a full year. For the first three months of their life, it’s completely normal for babies to want to be held all the time, rocked to sleep and then only sleep on your [...]

Chalkboard signs can be used for so many things —wedding décor, decorative signs for your home or ways to display quotes. Quite a few mamas at Mama [...]

Summer Sangria

Don’t let the title fool you— this yummy and fruity drink is refreshing in winter, spring, summer or fall! Though I’m not a big drinker, I like to enjoy an occasional glass of Sangria for a special occasion. I whipped this up the other night for my sister-in-laws’ bridal shower dinner and it was a [...]

Go-to-Gifts: The Survival Box for Nursing Mamas

I recently had my second son, K, back in March and am fortunate that we have had a very easy and enjoyable nursing experience (so far!). Minus some seriously painful engorgement the first week, it’s been more or less an excellent bonding experience. I forgot how much I enjoyed breastfeeding! It might sound weird to [...]

Boppy Pillow Reviews and Giveaway!

As a mama of two boys, I’ve bought and tried so many different types of baby products, toys, and gear. By the time our second little man was born, I felt like I had a good handle on what worked for us and what didn’t. One of my favorite things to use as a first [...]
