Taking Baby Anywhere with GoPod Travel Activity Seat from KidCo

I received complimentary products to feature in my Baby Shower Gift Guide. All opinions are my own.

My cousin has a new baby. He was unplanned and she had already sold or donated all of her baby stuff. So when I saw her over Christmas, I knew I needed to help her out. Her little man likes to sit up and look at the world, but he is a chunk and it isn't practical to carry him around all the time. That's why I decided to reach out to KidCo. I had seen their GoPod Travel Activity Seat before and just knew it would be perfect for her needs.


My cousin is a busy mom to three kiddos aged four and younger, so she needed something that was light weight and could easily travel on the go. The GoPod Travel Activity Seat is perfect for her because it only weighs 7 pounds and is designed to fold and go. The attached floor pad keeps baby’s feet on a clean surface whether at the camp fire, on a picnic, watching the big kids play sports, or outside in a muddy area like we were.

Celebrating National Engineers Week with Ellie, Engineer

I received complimentary products to provide this post. All opinions are my own.

Did you know National Engineers Week is February 18 through 24 this year?

Ellie loves to build. She’s always engineering new creations with the help of her imagination and her best friend Kit. Unfortunately, with Kit’s birthday just around the corner, the French-braiding machine Ellie built turns out to be more of a hair-knotting machine. What’s Ellie going to do? Luckily, the girls overhear Kit’s mom talking about Kit’s surprise – it must be the dog she’s always wanted! Ellie is struck with inspiration: she’ll build Kit the best doghouse ever! The project quickly becomes more than just a present for Kit – it builds a bridge between Ellie and those bothersome neighbor boys, as well as the other handy girls in her class.

Choose Plant-Based Protein and Save at Publix

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pinnacle Foods & Boulder Brands. All opinions are my own.

One of my tips I tell people to help save money on their grocery meals is to have one night that is meatless. So when we are creating our meal plan we have what we like to call “Meatless Mondays.” And what you may find surprising is that you can choose plant-based foods without giving up taste, convenience, or quality.


One of our favorite recipes to create for Meatless Mondays is Chicken Parm with Zucchini Noodles.

Stepping into Spring with prAna

I have been trying new things this year. Although we haven't been able to travel as much as we did last year, this has given us a chance to explore more local opportunities. I have even stepped out of my box and attended my first Zumba class at my gym!


prAna designs clothes that I can confidently wear all day, no matter what the day brings. I wore my outfit while I was at home working, to my son's school, I changed my top and went to the gym, and I have wore it out to dinner with friends. But I am also excited to wear it whether we go hiking or on more of our spontaneous traveling adventures because prAna is so versatile.
