The Perfect Mattress for Pregnant Women

This post contains affiliate links.

Pregnancy is a beautiful, miraculous occurrence, but let’s face it: it’s also extremely uncomfortable at times.  From swollen feet to morning sickness and everything in between, carrying a child is certainly no picnic. According to the Sleep Foundation, “78% of women report more disturbed sleep during pregnancy than at other times.” It can be difficult enough to sleep while pregnant, and the last thing you need is your mattress adding to your discomfort and inability to sleep. Memory foam mattresses as well as heated mattresses provide many benefits for women during their nine months of pregnancy and beyond.

How I Manage Busy Mom Life

Thanks to Sam's Club for sponsoring today's conversation and saving me time. All super mom hacks and opinions are my own.

It is the end of the school year time. And my daughter has something (if not multiple) events at school every week this month. Plus she has recently started tumbling. On top of that, I also signed my son up for pre-school, I have multiple errands, I go to the gym, I volunteer at my daughter's school, I have house work, and I work from home. Life can feel like it is stacking up sometimes, but I manage with a few super mom life hacks I have learned along the way and today I want to help you manage your busy mom life too.

Importance of Taking a Daily Probiotic for Women

I have been on a health and wellness journey since January. I have tried to lose weight in the past, but I am just focusing on overall wellness which means a lifestyle change and if weightloss happens then that is great. I have been taking probiotics for a few years now. I started taking them when I was pregnant with my son and I noticed so many amazing results. I have been looking for a change in probiotic since I have been eating differently and exercising more.

I was recently introduced to NOW, which is a family-owned company since 1968 and was founded on the principle that quality natural health products should be affordable to everyone. Nearly 50 years later, NOW is a leader in the natural products industry, and their mission has remained the same: to provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW’s extensive line of 1400 products, most of which are non-GMO, includes dietary supplements, health and beauty products, essential oils, healthy foods, sports nutrition, and pet supplements.

Nanny's Homemade Macaroni & Cheese Recipe

My husband and I have been together for almost thirteen years now. His grandmother was a big part of their family and even though she has passed away, her memory is still very strong. One of my favorite memories with her is when she taught me to make the best homemade macaroni and cheese. I knew very little about cooking at the time and she wanted to pass on her recipes so those around her could recreate them when she was unable to.

The way she taught me this recipe included no recipe cards or measuring cups, but a lot of love. Each time I make this it's a little different because how I learned was to look and see if that was the right amount. Some batches are better than others, but I am getting better and better each time.

How to Throw an Epic (& Inexpensive) Preschool Playdate #DisneyKids

I love throwing parties. I love having everyone get together at my house regardless of what we are celebrating. When I was invited to host a Disney Kids Preschool Playdate for the third time, I wanted to make this one different and unique. If you follow me on Facebook or YouTube, then you have seen our #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate Unboxing already. These past few months have flown by and been very crazy, but that doesn't mean that a party still can't be fun. I love how our party turned out. Everyone had a great time, it wasn't time consuming to plan, and it was inexpensive as well. Plus everyone learned about the awesomeness of Walt Disney World.
