New Year’s Eve we had the pleasure of seeing the Harlem Globetrotters play at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee as part of their on-going tour. I have heard great things about the team, but had never seen them myself until now. We had a great time, and I will happily go see them in the future!

When it comes to groceries, our home is on a pretty tight budget. That means that buying quality groceries at a good price is usually more important than the convenience of things like grocery delivery services. I loved using Peapod after my son was born, but the groceries came at a higher price than a trip to the grocery store, so I did not continue to use their service. Recently, Amazonfresh moved into our area, and I saw that they were offering $25 off your first order of $100. You all know that I count on Amazon to deliver great prices on my household staples, so I decided to check out this Amazonfresh service as well. Keep reading for my thoughts and Amazonfresh review.

I can’t be the only one who loves getting my little guy all dressed up for special occasions! Normally we go with the easy jeans or pants with a onesie and/or hoodie look, so when I have an excuse to dress Peanut up like a little man, I am all about it. Born to Love has a pretty great mix of grown-up fashion with a toddler flair. I teamed up with them to dress Peanut up for Thanksgiving and check out their site. Keep reading for my Born to Love review and some great toddler holiday fashion suggestions.

The internet has made so many things in our lives easier. We have the ability to communicate and find information in an instant. We can share our lives with not only our loved ones, but with other people (other moms!) that we have something in common with anywhere in the world. Unfortunately, right along with the great resources, we also have the ability to very easily be unkind to people. The topic of mom shaming is one that many people have very strong feelings about. It’s something that we talk about often. It’s something that we are quick to jump on someone for. It’s something that we do all the time. I think we can all agree that it is something that needs to stop. How do we work together to stop mom shaming?
As a working mom, coffee is a life necessity. I am a black coffee drinker, so I really love trying new coffees to mix up the flavor a little bit. I recently had the pleasure of teaming up with Rebel Pine to try out their variety pack, and I am happy to tell you all about this great coffee from a great company. Plus, I have the inside scoop on their upcoming holiday deals. Keep reading to check out my Rebel Pine Coffee Review.
Before I became a mom, the term “active wear” sounded like the kind of clothing I would wear to work out. Now that I have a toddler, I would say that we are active all day everyday – playing, cooking, putting all of the pots back in the cabinet, cleaning, running errands, even watching TV now requires chasing after a rambunctious little one. Anything that I wear needs to be comfortable to move around in. At the same time, I don’t want to be sitting around it baggy sweats all the time. I was super excited to be able to team up with Moms Meet to try out prAna’s versatile line of activewear. Check out this prAna review to see what I loved about my pieces and why they are great activewear for active moms. Also, get my exclusive prAna promo code.
Hello to all of Lexie’s followers and a big thank you to Lexie for having me as a guest blogger! My name is Lindsey and I blog over at www.delicatelybalancinglife.com. I’ve been a wife for 17+ years, but a mom for just six short months! I spent my 20’s and most of my 30’s focused on my career as a law firm administrator, so when my husband and I decided to FINALLY turn our party of two into a family of three, I knew one thing for sure: I wasn’t going to let all I had worked so hard to build fall by the wayside in the name of motherhood. I had built a reputation as a hard working go-getter and there was no way that I was going to be seen as anything less than that just because I was a mom!
