    Staying Cool This Summer

    Gav + Ro // Staying cool and hydrated with Nuby

    It goes without saying that summer is just hot.  But here in the south, we get hoooooooot!  So we’re always trying to find ways to stay cool during these humid and hot summer days.  One thing we have a lot of around where we live are splash pads (or fountains) and my boys love them!  All I have to do is pack up the sunscreen, towels, and our favorite Nuby water canteens to stay hydrated and we’re off!

    I think Gav and Ro would play at the splash pad until their whole bodies were nothing but one giant wrinkle.  But every now any then they will take a break for some water and, of course, a snack.

    The Nuby Thirsty Kids 12 oz. Freestyle water canteen is made of durable tritan from Eastman and is ideal for kids on the go! The water canteen features a silicone band that allows your child to get a firm grip while drinking and a push top that keeps the straw clean when it is not in use. The water canteens are NEW at Babies R’ Us stores!

    These water canteens from Nuby are great for both my boys.  Even though Ro is 3+ years younger than Gav, these bottles are easy for him to hold onto and he can/will do it while running too!  Also, they have a great variety of prints so I was able to chose something that both boys would like.  (Because heaven forbid they look the same or *gasp* share!)

    What’s also great about this particular splash pad is that it’s a stone’s throw from my parents’ house where we like to go for lunch on occasion!  (Ok, ok…we go a lot.) This also happens to be where we keep Ro’s Nuby Silicone Mat.

    The Nuby Sure Grip Miracle mat features super gripping action that keeps the mat on the table and not on the floor! The 100% silicone mat allows for easy cleaning and the fun characters and design make mealtime fun!

    Shop the Nuby Sure Grip Miracle Mat range in store at: Target, TJ Maxx, Babies R’ Us, Walmart and coming this summer to BJ’s Wholesale Club. Shop the item online: Amazon , Target, and Babies R’ Us.

    My parents have a glass table, perfect for making finger prints and banging on with little hands!  Nuby to the rescue!  My little destructor can have his own plate now that involves no banging, no throwing, and easy clean up.  He tries to pull it up but after seeing that it’s not budging, he goes back to eating.

    Nothing beats these easy summer days in the sun!  (and staying hydrated, of course!) Be sure to check out my INSTAGRAM for a giveaway for your very own Nuby Thirsty Kids 12 oz. Freestyle water canteen!

    Cookie Decorating and Egg Hunt Party

    *This post was sponsored by Party City and the majority of the products that you see were supplied for use in planning this party.

    I love celebrating holidays.  Not necessarily in huge ways but I do enjoy heart shaped items for Valentine’s day, green colored things for St. Patrick’s day, pumpkins, and fireworks…you get the idea.  That’s why I started my cookie tradition with Gav.  I was able to take those little pieces that I love and turn them into a tradition.  There are a few holidays, however, that I enjoy more than others.  Christmas is pretty obvious, but I also really enjoy the Easter season.

    Celebrating Our Time Together With JORD

    JORD Conway Series Wooden Watch
    I don’t often talk much about one of the most important people in my life. He was there before the boys and he is one of my biggest cheerleaders. He is my companion and my partner for life. This is Chase, my husband.

    Celebrating your Husband with JORD wooden watches

    This year marks a special one in our marriage. Like many (dare I say ALL) marriages, ours is not easy. We fight, we argue, we complain but we love. Through it all we love. Last year we were coming out of one of the hardest years of our marriage yet, through our faith in the Lord, we have come out of it stronger. Our relationship is by no means perfect, we are still learning, but keeping God at the center has brought us to a new, more understanding place. We are now coming into our best year of marriage.

    November 20, 2017 will mark our seventh anniversary and I never really thought much about the seventh year until recently. Seven, in biblical terms, is a significant number. Many sources I’ve found say that it symbolizes completion or divine perfection. We are by no means divine or perfect and we certainly aren’t complete, but I love knowing that it is a complete number for our God. It is a good number, a holy number. So this year I wanted to do something special. Ever since he read an article like this https://www.watchshopping.com/blog/watch-guide-how-are-watches-made/, he has really wanted a new watch!! So I decided to treat him.

    In November we will be doing a photoshoot that I can hardly wait for but in the mean time, I wanted Chase to have something special to celebrate our time together. Enter this gorgeous piece by JORD. Chase is not one for jewelry, but he loves watches. He likes them mainly just for practical purposes but he has to like the way they look too. When I showed him the Conway collection from JORD, I knew it would be the perfect fit. He loves the wooden body and darker colors. JORD’s wooden watches come in a variety of finishes that are beautiful but he was definitely sold with the darker options like his piece in sandalwood.

    Now, let’s talk about wardrobe. Chase’s dark piece doesn’t exactly scream spring but it definitely goes with just about everything he owns. He does have a neon orange fishing shirt (that I never let him wear!) that I don’t think would go very well, but that’s about it! He can also attest that, while great for looks, it holds up during play time too.

    He loves showing his new wooden watch off and I love seeing him wear it. And while this year is pretty special for us, I look forward to many more!
