Organic Recommendations

I am not an "organic foods" person by any stretch of the imagination. I will occasionally buy some organic things to try, but at this point do not feel super convicted to change my diet. I do; however, like yummy food and to try new things. I have found (probably via Tricia or Serina) a couple of organic foods out there that are super yummy, my kids, hubby and I all love them and they are easy to cook. Definitely worth a try and worth buying again!

Amy's Organic Chunky Tomato Bisque 
Amy's Organic Lentil Soup (yes, my kids love it too!)
Annie's Shells and White Cheddar

Do you have any organic "must eats"?

Hair Bow Cuteness

I am SO excited. I ordered bows for my daughter's hair off of Etsy last week from three different sellers. They all arrived today and I absolutely LOVE them all. What a talented group of ladies. I can't wait to try them all out on her hair. The 3 sets on the left are from Sassy Lil Ones, the middle set (and I think my personal favorites) are from Hair Sprinkles, and the 3  sets on the right are from Emma Lee's Boutique. The quality looks fantastic on all of them, the customer service from all was amazing and SUPER friendly, and shipping was very fast. I should also mention the prices...awesome. 

I especially encourage you to check out these and other awesome Etsy sellers of children's  goods in the next week. All handmade products for children under 12 will have to be tested for lead starting February 10...In theory it is a great idea...I am all about safety for our children. In practice, this law will put all of our small businesses, like the ones listed above, out of business. They either have to choose to break the law and continue selling items, pay thousands upon thousands of dollars to have their items tested for lead (which most cannot afford), or discontinue their business. So, please, click here to educate yourself on the new law, and how you can help get it amended to keep these and other wonderful Etsy sellers in business.

Never thought I'd hear myself say: Vol 2

A while back I posted some things that I never thought I'd hear myself say, but now that I'm a mother I say.

Lately I have found myself saying to my son multiple times a day:

"We don't eat brown snow, we only eat white snow"

He loves to eat snow and keeps trying to eat snow that is near the road and is all nasty and dirty. The phrase isn't terribly funny, but I say it so many times in one day, it is unbelievable! I suppose this principle will become extremely important though if he ever encounters yellow snow.

About Me

I am a sinner who has been chosen by God and redeemed by the death and resurrection of his son Jesus. I am a full-time wife and mom, though I hope to someday return to my job as an SLP. I love photography, coffee, reading, and adoption. I hate to clean, but sometimes do it anyway!
