While we’ve all been staying at home more, a lot of us have set some goals. Some have fitness goals. Others are baking up delectables in the kitchen. Others are working on home projects, organizing all the things, or working in the garden. (And, hopefully all of us are doing this.) It’s been interesting to see what people have done in this crazy and challenging time. In our house we’ve been doing a lot of the above, but I’ve also been taking time to explore my horizons when it comes to wine. I often reach for my go-to faves when…

What’s something you’ve done during this pandemic that you’re proud of? What’s one thing that’s made you feel good? via GIPHY Maybe it’s sending a postcard or letter to a friend, or leaving some fresh baked cookies on your neighbor’s doorstep. Perhaps you’re writing positive reviews for local businesses you would normally frequent, or making time to call your parents or grandparents more often. If you’re looking for an idea beyond the ones above, may I suggest a little online shopping with the Women’s Bean Project? Whether you’re looking for some snacks and staples to stock your own pantry or…

A lot of people have set quarantine goals. Although I tend to be of the mindset that getting through it is the only goal — period — I have tried to use the extra time at home to explore one of my growing passions: wine. And while non-essential travel is obviously out of the question for us for awhile, I have been able to virtually get away via Netflix and Amazon Prime to some pretty incredible wine destinations — and I’ve learned A LOT in the process. If you love wine, too, and have a thirst for knowing more about…

Editor’s note: This post was written before the insanity and reality/tragedy of COVID-19 set in. Coincidentally, some of the items are awesome for home learning and independent play, so hopefully they’re extra useful to you and your family. My daughter just turned five. And it’s still blowing my mind — despite the multiple birthday parties and kindergarten registration. She’s FIVE. And, like most 5-year-olds, she’s really curious, silly, and fun. She loves learning and playing. And while her Paw Patrol toys continue to be one of the things she plays with most, she’s also into gardening, helping us with chores…

The weather is chilly. via GIPHY The heater is on. via GIPHY You’ve got a warm mug of coffee or tea to go along with your slippers. via GIPHY Yep, coziness is in full affect. via GIPHY And one of our favorite breakfasts for these awesomely lazy and cozy mornings? Oatmeal. But just because oatmeal can be basic, it doesn’t mean it has to be basic. In fact, here are three ways we love getting our cozy oatmeal mornings on. And not one of them is boring, in the least. Foodie and Fast While it can be nice to fire…

I love kombucha. I also enjoy having a drink or two a few nights a week with my husband or my friends. And this can right here? Well, it put all my loves together and has made my sippin’ dreams come true. Yes, it’s HARD kombucha. Much like hard soda or hard sparkling water, alcoholic kombucha is now a thing, and with Flying Embers’ four flavors coming in at 4.5 percent alcohol per 12-ounce can with zero sugar and live probiotics, it’s a thing I really, really love (in moderation, of course). There are beginning to be more and more…

New brands and new products are being launched all the time. Like, if ya’ll could see our inboxes, they are full of emails claiming best-this, most-revolutionary that. via GIPHY It’s hard to know sometimes what’s really new and exciting (and true), and what’s just hype. And if we feel that way, we imagine you might, too. via GIPHY Which is why we decided to put a few of the most interesting claims we’ve seen to the test. The FBG test! (And, yep, all these companies sent us gear to review and we’ve included some affiliate links in case you want…

Now that the twins are in daycare a few days a week, I’ve been pumping more. And I’ve got some opinions on which breast pump I think is best — both from a convenience and maximizing-your-milk standpoint. And, mamas, there are A LOT of breast pump choices out there. Which is awesome, because there’s a lot of ways to do motherhood — and a variety of ways to feed your baby. (Fed — period — is best!) But, it can also be a bit overwhelming. Especially as a new mom. Hopefully by sharing my experience with the three that I…

When you think of beauty, what comes to mind? And how does that compare to what you might’ve thought of, say, five or 10 years ago? Maybe it’s because I’m a couple months away from celebrating my 40th birthday, maybe it’s because of the way society has evolved, or maybe it’s because of what’s on trend now, but boy, has my perception changed. I’m far more interested in looking healthy than I am in looking perfect or polished, and when it comes to seeing beauty in others, well, I honestly see it everywhere. If you choose to look for it,…
