I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Rhode Island to visit the Wildtree Home Office and take a “Behind the Bottle” tour. There were about 150 of us who earned this trip for FREE! Wildtree flew us into Providence, paid for our hotel for the weekend, and provided meals and hospitality during our entire stay in the beautiful Ocean State.

This was the first “Girl’s Weekend” I have ever taken in my whole life so I was SUPER excited! There are men in the company but, so far, my team is all women. I learned many interesting facts that I am elated to share with you!

January Meal Plan

Happy New Year! Welcome to the January Meal Plan! In order to stay organized in January, I have scheduled our meals for the next month. I am excited to share this with you because I know how hard it can be to plan ahead. As a mom that works from home, I understand all the responsibilities and tasks parents take on, regardless of whether we have sufficient time or energy or not. Making healthy meals for your family does not have to be difficult. Let me help!

I have come up with this list of meals. Most are from Wildtree’s awesome meal plans and the others are from an amazing fellow mom blogger. Keep in mind that this is my first time planning meals a month in advance so it may take me a bit to get in the groove. I am posting this meal plan now in case you would like to try the recipes with me in January. Otherwise, you can wait for my final verdict later on and implement this plan in February.

Local Love: Tallahassee Inspired Gift Ideas

We are less than a week away from Christmas, yet, I do not have all my Christmas shopping done. Why do I do this to myself?! I think the reason holidays are stressful is because we set such high standards for ourselves in gift-giving. My goal is to avoid the big box stores and keep it simple! To me, the perfect gifts are ones that are practical and useful. Skip the outlandishly priced trending items and go for the product that will be used frequently.

Happy November! With the pumpkin craze still going strong, I thought the best way to get back into writing would be to share tasty pumpkin recipes with you.

It brings joy and excitement to others and I love being a part of that. So, pumpkin lovers, this post is just for you! It includes several simple & healthy pumpkin recipes that you are sure to love.

Baby Bare Necessities: 0-6 Months

Baby Bare Necessities: 0-6 Months

What do you need to have before baby arrives? Sing with me, “Look for the bare necessities. The simple bare necessities.” Preparing for baby is an exciting and joyous time. Do not let all the commercialization bog you down. Be a minimalist and save your money by only purchasing essentials that can be re-used with several children. Having new, trendy baby items can be fun, however, your baby will not notice if you stick to the basics.

Crunchy Collection #2

Welcome to Crunchy Collection #2!

It’s June! Can you believe it? We’re halfway through the year already! Summer is such an odd season to me, especially here in Florida. We wish for warm weather (at least 75° or above for us Southern snobs) and then when it comes, we are so stinking hot that we can’t wait for Fall. The grass is always greener on the other side, right?

Crunchy Collection 2

Anyways, I’ve had trouble figuring out what to do because the majority of our weekly activities do not continue into the summer. So, I have decided I am going to start a Summer Solution; like a New Year’s resolution but for the Summer months. This Crunchy Collection is filled with things that I can work on over the next couple of months. I hope you will set some goals and share them with me so we can reach our goals together. Let’s have a fun AND productive Summer! On a side note, I must be feeling ambitious because this post ended up being quite lengthy but I saved some of the best things for last so please read through to the end.
