#LongLastingScent #CollectiveBias


Scent is such a powerful sense for me. Not only can I smell everything, it drives my husband crazy when I smell little things he doesn't but certain smells just have such powerful memories. Whether something reminds me of a special moment or the smell of a certain cologne that my husband wears that reminds me of when we started dating almost twenty years ago. That's why I'm so particular about doing the laundry. I love the smell of laundry when it comes out of the washer and dryer. I only wish it would smell like that a few days later and not lose that fresh smell so quick.

Learning About Antioxidants in Our Food - #AntioxidantFacts

This post is brought to you by ConAgra and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

Recently ConAgra held a virtual briefing to talk a little about antioxidants as preservatives in food. What I feed my family is important to me. While I 'm pretty familiar with what an antioxidant is, I'm clueless about their role as preservatives in the food we eat. While I try to make many of meals homemade, there are plenty of things we eat that are already prepared. That's one of the reasons I was excited to learn as much as I can about what goes into our food and why. I learned quite a few things that I didn't know about and hopefully you'll learn a thing or two as well.

Baby Shower Favorites

When it was time to set up my baby registry with my first child I registered for anything and everything that looked cute or appealing. As a first time mom, I didn't know ahead of time that I wouldn't use half of the things I registered for. So when it came time to register for this baby number 2, I knew I was going to keep my registry short and sweet. I only wanted to register for the necessities. Things I knew I would use. It's so easy to get carried away and register for everything under the sun. In reality though, half of that stuff will never be used. Even when it comes time for me to buy a baby gift for someone, I like to keep it practical. There's no reason you can't buy cute and practical. So today, I'm sharing some of my favorite baby gifts to give and receive.

Folks can you believe it’s April?! I don’t know about you, but these last few months have flown on by. I’m pretty proud of myself to sticking to most of the goals I set for myself earlier this year. One important goal that I’ve always tended to look past was taking care of me. I put everyone else’s needs and wants before myself and that was one thing that needed to change. I’ve made little changes to what I eat, drink and how I exercise and am off to a fabulous start this year.

Satisfying Snacks for My Hungry Tween

The older my son gets, the bigger his appetite grows. He's at the point the now where he practically eats me out of house and home. From the minute he wakes up until he goes to sleep he's always seems to be hungry. So of course that means I need to make sure the kitchen is stocked with plenty of snack options  for him to satisfy his hunger.

Keep Germs Away with Purell® Hand Sanitizing Wipes

After being stuck inside for what felt like an eternity this winter, my family and I are ready to be outdoors enjoying the beautiful spring weather. Between trips to the park, walks around the neighborhood and just playing in our own backyard getting things ready for summer we haven't missed a beat enjoying these warm temperatures. While we have so much fun outdoors it always ends up with one, or all of us, coming back a little dirtier than when we left.

Spring Into Carter's for Great Deals on Adorable Clothes for Kids {Save 20% with Coupon}

Disclosure: I participated in an Influence Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter's. I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation. #SpringIntoCarters

I absolutely love shopping for little girls clothes. This is one thing I seriously underestimated when I was pregnant. I'm pretty well versed in shopping for boys at this point but shopping for my baby girl has been so much fun! The outfits are just too adorable for words. One of my absolute favorite, go-to brand of baby clothes is Carters. My son loved his Carter's clothes all the way until he grew out of them. So when I was asked to check out Carter's Spring line, I couldn't wait.
