Pizza Nights are the Best Nights

A few years ago my husband got a pizza oven and ever since then we have been hooked on homemade pizza. Before Evelyn was born, we would have pizza night once a month with some friends, it was that intense. Now that Henry is older he loves to make his own pizza and add an array of toppings. Although we’ve had to refrain from letting him use candy, most of his creations are really yummy. I love seeing how he lays out the ingredients on the dough like a work of art. He’s really into putting things in rows so usually only half of his pizza has cheese on it 🙂


We’ve found that the best mozzarella is made by Stella® Cheese. Our favorite pizza to make at home consists of prosciutto, basil and fresh mozzarella. It’s so simple to make and always a crowd pleaser. Stella® cheeses are flavorful and combine old world craftsmanship with rich dairy heritage, dating back to 1923. From shredded to crumbled and sharp to sweet, the wide range of Stella® cheese products will infuse your meals with a hint of romantic flavor. Pizza nights are a great way to bring family and friends together for a laid back evening. They’re also a great way for young children to experiment with cooking and explore their independence. Henry loves to cook and is so happy when he helps daddy in the kitchen making pizzas. buy amoxil online no prescription

Making Mornings easier with Purina® Pro Plan®

It’s pretty safe to say that both of my kids get their love of cats from their mama. Evelyn is so infatuated with cats that her first birthday was cat themed (crazy cat lady in training). We have two cats, a dog and a fish so mornings around our house are hectic to say the least. They usually start before 5am when my youngest wakes the entire family. Of course, everyone is wanting something from me: the dog is whining to be let out, our fish is swimming a marathon in his tank so I notice him and our cats practically trip me down the stairs because they want their breakfast. Evelyn is screaming for “me-mow” (Mickey Mouse) to be turned on and Henry is asking for cookies. After too many days of this circus, I began to plan ahead to make our mornings easier. buy desyrel online no prescription

After everyone is in bed I try and prep as much as I can before the morning, which includes filling the cats bowls with their breakfast. We use Purina® Pro Plan® Savor® Shredded Blend in the Salmon & Rice Formula, made with real meat. Our cats love the fish and I love that it’s rich in antioxidants and omega fatty acids,  high in protein, and has vital vitamins and minerals, such as calcium for strong bones. I fill the kids sippy cups and even set the microwave for 40 seconds so I can easily pop in Evelyn’s milk. Once we come downstairs in the morning, I feed the fish, let the dog out and peel a few bananas for the kids while Evelyn’s milk is warming. Since we are in the process of updating our sunroom, the kids and cats love to spend mornings out there eating their breakfast together. They have such a great relationship and I love how they’re all so close. Living in Atlanta, we have to take advantage of the cool weather before the heat rolls in so spending some quiet time together before we take on the day is key.

Being a parent isn’t easy and sometimes it feels like we’re spread too thin and are in constant state of stress, worrying about all of the things that need to be done. Planning ahead is key, when you are able to do so. I swear by tackling small tasks in the evening. Try spending 15-20 minutes doing these 5 things to make your morning routines easier. buy doxepin online no prescription
1. Load the dishwasher and wipe down the counters. Who wants to wake up to a sink full of dirty dishes and no clean sippy cups for the kids? While the kids are eating breakfast and watching morning cartoons, unload the dishwasher, brew some coffee and enjoy some temporary moments of silence.
2. Prep your coffee. If you drink your coffee warm, then fill the coffee pot with warm water and grounds so all you have to do is press the on button. If you love iced coffee, stock them in the fridge so you don’t have to wait for warm coffee to chill. Because not having your coffee within 15 minutes of waking up is like a nightmare for moms.
3. Cut fruit/fill sippy cups. My kids always have some sort of fruit in the morning. I cut and store in small containers so all I have to do is take them out of the fridge and put them on the table. Same with pouring juice and milk ahead of time.
4. Clean up on aisle living room. Doing a quick sweep of toys in your main play area will make your kids excited to play in the mornings (and hopefully let you drink your coffee). My kids hate coming into the living room and seeing all their toys everywhere. It automatically creates stress and overstimulation and that sets their mood for the day. When they walk into a clean space, then their imaginations are free to explore!
5. Write a short to do list. Before going to bed I always make a list of things that need to be done the next day and check my list from the previous day to see what tasks need to be rolled over. I very rarely accomplish everything, but having things written down means they’re not jumbled in my head and I don’t have to constantly worry about something I have missed.

An Easy Summertime Snack!

Thank you to General Mills for sponsoring today’s post!

Now that summer is officially here, we are spending a lot of time outdoors. Almost every evening and weekend consists of the kids playing in their kiddie pools in the backyard. Henry is obsessed with his water slide and I may or may not take several a few turns going down it myself. Summers in Georgia are no joke and we definitely like to take breaks from the heat to relax with a yummy snack. buy lipitor online no prescription
General Mills has recently added a ton of Gluten Free cereal options including Lucky Charms, Cherrios and my favorite: Chex! I just introduced Evelyn to Chex and now the cinnamon is her favorite snack. They are the perfect size for tiny fingers. The chocolate is also delicious and I’ve been having it for breakfast everyday this past week. #momlife

Henry and Evelyn’s favorite way to eat the Chex lately is without milk straight from the box. I pour some in bowls for them and they love to eat it by the pool. There’s no sticky residue or messy cleanup to worry about and they can easily pause from playtime to fill their bellies. These classic cereals are now all Gluten Free! Not only are there now five flavors of Chex but there are also several Cherrios options and Lucky Charms too. You can buy nexium online no prescription

Combating Dry Skin & Diaper Rash with Skinfix Inc.

Today’s post is sponsored by Skinfix Inc., but my love for their products are all my own!

Since Henry was about a year old, I started noticing small raised bumps on the back of his arms and thighs. Sometimes the skin would be red and sometimes you couldn’t even see them. However, I knew they were there because of the patches of rough, bumpy skin that covered his poor legs and arms. This dryness never seemed to bother him and would come and go as the seasons changed. I tried several different lotions and creams but it never went away. Since this clearly wasn’t bothering him, I honestly forgot about it and just chalked it up to him having dry, sensitive skin. Finally at his two year checkup I remembered to ask his pediatrician about it and he informed me it was Keratosis Pilaris, which results from the buildup of keratin (a hard protein that protects skin from infection). While this is not painful or dangerous, the thought of my poor babies skin being so rough really upset me. After all, I was a first time mother and worried a lot. Over the next few year I continued to experiment with homemade creams, lotions and body wash. Nothing ever seemed to work. buy venlafaxine online no prescription

While perusing in Target, aka my mothership, I picked up some of their Eczema Balm for Henry and noticed they also have Diaper Rash Balm (double score). Since Evelyn has been teething like crazy, she has been getting some pretty mean rashes to go along with her new teeth. The balm is tinted, almost like a concealer but it does not stain your hands or get on clothes. I always apply a heavy layer at bedtime to protect her skin since she sleeps through the night for 12+ hours. It has really made a diminished the amount of rashes she has had. buy viagra black online no prescription

We have a nighttime ritual where the kids get to play in the bath for nearly an hour  with various toys. Henry gets to choose a new toy each night to take up with him (water safe of course) and I love seeing what he picks each evening. On this particular night it was mega blocks! After bath I lather the kids with lotion and spend a good hour trying to wrangle them into their beds. The Eczema Balm has really been a lifesaver for Henry’s sensitive skin. While it hasn’t cleared the Keratosis Pilaris (it will never fully go away) it has calmed the bumps and stopped them from becoming worse or inflamed. The balm goes on thick, but not greasy, and really works to moisturize the affected area. I apply the Eczema Balm before bedtime and immediately put his pajamas on so the cream can really dissolve into the skin. buy vidalista online no prescription


My favorite part about the SkinFix line is that they are fragrance free, paraben free and they use nut free ingredients. Be sure to head over to your local Target or CVS and pick up the Diaper Rash Balm, Eczema Balm, Hair & Body Wash and Lotion. (as if you needed another reason to go to Target, am I right?)
