Friday Fresh Picks – Sun essentials

When it comes to the summer sun we are extremely cautious of the sun. My husband had a small case of melanoma a few years back, and it’s changed our approach to skin safety. We aren’t beach people but when we do make the trip out you can see us covered and most likely pale as can be from the numerous layers of sunscreen. There are so many sun-safe options for the whole family, at a great price, you just…

An easy mealtime option for Toddlers

Who uses pouches for their kids?? We swear by them for our home, travel, on-the-go, and daycare! They are so convenient, and most of them provide a fruit & veggie option. It’s a great way to get those essential nutrients into your kiddos, without the added stress of watching your toddler throw his/her broccoli on the floor. I find them to be such a help when I’m running around the grocery store just before dinner. It’s one of the only…

How to grow closer to your spouse during wedding planning.

Our wedding is 3 months away and I honestly can’t believe it. The truth is, I thought the wedding planning process would be a lot harder than it has turned out to be.

But A’s doctor wants her to consume more cooked dairy to see how her stomach will handle it, so I’ve been researching some recipes. My sister-in-law makes these awesome zucchini bites for my nieces, and I feel as though everyone has been talking about replacing items with zucchini. Whether its zoodles or zucchini…
