Spring Giveaway Week: MightyNest Picnic Gear Pack (with Review!)

MightyNestGiveaway

By Beth Ricci, Contributing Writer What’s summer without a picnic or two or twenty? Um, nothing, that’s what. OK, maybe that’s a bit extreme, but isn’t it true that two of the most universally loved human experiences are eating and enjoying the great outdoors? Put the two of them together and you’ve got sheer bliss, baby! My kids love picnics so much that they have pretend ones all year long indoors. A blanket on the floor and a plate of snacks = happy little people, […]

Spring Giveaway Week: Natural Skincare Bundle From Third Day Naturals (With Review!)

third-day-naturals

By Stacy Myers, Contributing Writer I’m not a girly-girl. Never have been. But let me tell you something…I like smelling pretty. Maybe that comes from years of smelling like spit-up, pee-pee, or “oh-my-goodness-when-did-I-last-have-a-bath?” Something about taking a bath with smell-good stuff and then rubbing some on my body just makes me feel better. Even if the day has been a bit rough, a shower and some lip balm just perks my day right up. It seems easier to handle things when you don’t smell like […]

Weekend Links (and Wise Choice Market Giveaway Winner!)

I couldn’t resist sharing a few of the stunningly gorgeous photos from my husband’s trip to Antarctica two weeks ago. This is what I wanted to see most of all… the turquoise icebergs. He said they truly are this bold aquamarine color! Links I loved this week: Becoming Debt Free & 6 Odd Tips That Helped Us @ The Nester. Myquilyn shares her family’s story of getting out of $150,000 of debt, and as someone who has also had to pay off debt (ours was […]

I took this image at Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires this week, but it is a fitting image for Easter weekend, as we celebrate the beauty of what Christ has done for us through the cross… Links I’ve Loved Our Suburban Backyard Garden @ The Marathon Mom. I’m already missing my garden and spring has barely begun, but I do love reading about others’ gardens and how they grow as much as they can, even in small spaces.

Winter Giveaway Week: Win 1 of 2 Annual Memberships to “No More To Go” Menu Plans ($64 Value Each)

balsamic strip steak

This seems to be the week for giveaways geared to meal planning and cooking from scratch! Today’s giveaway is a little bit different, though. Typically I share a lot about doing your own meal planning, but I know that for many people, that’s still a daunting thought. Particularly for those still making the transition to real foods and looking for ways to cut down on the planning time that goes along with eating better, No More To Go just might be the perfect solution. Instead […]

Winter Giveaway Week: Win a ProPur BIG Water Filter System (valued at $290)!

ProPur

There’s no way around it: water is a vital part of our everyday lives. I love to chug down a tall glass of cold (but not ice cold, please!) water to quench my thirst – there’s just nothing quite like it. There’s also nothing quite like the taste of chlorine and sediment and general grossness that all too often comes along with tap water. Blech! I am very thankful to have access to relatively clean water whenever we want it. That is definitely not the […]

Winter Giveaway Week: Win 1 of 10 Copies of the “Better Than a Box” eBook

gluten-free-breaded-chicken-nuggets-34-500x375

Making real food understandable (and the transition to it achievable) is a huge priority for me as a blogger. Coming from a background of being raised on primarily processed foods and having to both learn to acquire a taste for real food, as well as learn to cook it, has given me a genuine desire to want to offer resources to help make the transition easier for others than it was for me. Over the past month and a half, we’ve been writing about “Real […]
