We are almost finished with the playroom; I can’t wait to share the entire reveal with you. However, before that happens…I’ve gotten many many messages asking about the oversized photos in the playroom so I thought I’d share the details. 🙂Read more
I LOVE looking at photos! Whether I’m in a good or a bad mood, looking at happy memories always puts a smile on my face! Every house that we’ve lived in had a gallery wall and every time they look a little different. Read more
After everything that has gone on in the world in the past few months, we have decided to homeschool Camden and Ella for preschool! Read more
Do you have kids? Have you heard of AutoBrush®? If not, prepare to get your mind blown! Here is my full review of AutoBrush for Kids.
No one ever told me how hard it would be to get your kids to brush their teeth or do a good job at brushing their teeth. I tried all the methods and googled everything. Twice a day I dreaded teeth brushing time with my kiddos because it seemed to take forever! Until now…we started using AutoBrush® and haven’t looked back. I no longer dread teeth brushing time, I actually enjoy it because my kids love it and it takes 30 seconds! Camden and Ella ask multiple times a day to brush their teeth because they enjoy the AutoBrush® so much!
AutoBrush® for Kids is a fun, automatic electric toothbrush. It’s designed to brush all teeth at once. All you do, is put the toothpaste on the top and bottom tray, put it in their mouth, turn it on and it cleans their teeth for 30 seconds! It’s effective and very convenient. My kids love to dance to the music while it’s cleaning.
They have fun animals to choose from, Camden uses the Zebra (he named it ZigZag) and Ella selected the Hippo (she named her Eloise)! It’s even fine to use if your child has braces.
Here is a video of us using it:

We are out of the “terrible twos” and we now have “threenagers”. Haha! I really didn’t think the terrible two’s were all that terrible, there were definitely some hard moments and learning moments for all of us. Now that we’ve entered three, my two really understand right from wrong and are great at helping with things around the house. However, I needed something to motivate them so I started doing some research and found these Chore/Responsibility Charts from Calendar Kids on Etsy!
I love these because I can set responsibilities or chores and then motivate them to complete these. Their responsibilities now are pretty basic but as they get older, I can change them on this chart.
I customized ours to match Camden and Ella’s room. The owner, Lindy was SOOO sweet and amazing to work with. Didn’t they turn out adorable?
Each board comes with:
28 Chore Tiles
13 Reward Tiles
And 50 Star Tiles
I also bought additional customized tiles. Many of the chores above my kids aren’t ready for so I added some that my kids can do every day and things we are working on. Examples of these are: listened to Mom and Dad, didn’t yell, ate my food, had zero accidents, and shared my toys. I know as time goes on, these responsibilities/chores will change.
Camden and Ella are doing great with these! I can already tell a difference because they are motivated to do more of these things!! You will notice too that they each have some different responsibilities. Ella is our picky eater so I’m trying to get her to try more foods. Camden is our LOUD child and he is working on using an inside voice.
As you can tell, we just love their new Chore Charts and I just had to share this awesome find with you! Calendar Kids makes many other adorable products like Weekly Calendars, Daily Calendars, different types of Chore Charts, Potty Charts, Magnets, and many other printables!! You can also check them out on Instagram.
We’re not ones to normally make resolutions but after a really stressful 2019, we decided to have one resolution…be healthy physically and mentally.
Physical well-being is obvious, take better care of ourselves with food, sleep, and exercise. The kids already do great with this but Judd and I struggle. We work a lot, we focus on the kids, and we don’t take time to focus on our own health. Healthy meals are going to be a must in 2020!
Mentally…we need to take on less and have more time for relaxing and spending time with one another. Traveling was starting to feel like work and wasn’t as fun, we have fewer booked for 2020. This also means we need more help…Camden and Ella will be going to a mom’s day out program once a week so I can get work done around the house and I’m hiring a virtual assistant. This also means not focusing so much time on meal planning and things around the house…
Something I found that will help us with our physical and mental health and our resolution is Factor!
It’s a meal delivery service and the meals are already made! Wait, what? Yes, you read that correctly! All you have to do is heat it up! Amazing, right?
Not only that but the meals are fresh and healthy! They pride themselves on ingredients with integrity. Their meals are nutritionist designed, prepared by a chef, and delivered straight to your door!
I was skeptical about how the food would taste with it being so healthy and premade (just having to heat it up at home); I was amazed! The food is DELICIOUS! It tastes like it was just made for you in a restaurant. There hasn’t been a meal we’ve tried that hasn’t been incredible! My favorite (so far) is the Grilled Pesto Chicken and Judd’s favorite is the Queso Fundido!
All ingredients are grass fed + pasture raised, antibiotic and hormone free, no refined sugars, gluten and soy free, preservative free, and non-GMO! Their packaging is easy to understand: meat is orange, breakfast is yellow, seafood is blue, and veggies are green!
Factor updates their menu every week (amazing selection too), you pick your favorites or you can let them select option for you based on your taste preference and meal history. Then your order will be delivered fresh (never frozen) straight to your door! You just eat it and enjoy! They have many different meal plans which you can find here.
Another perk, is all of their subscriptions also include one complimentary 20-minute consultation with a registered dietician.
We are so glad to have found Factor. My body appreciates it already and I love the extra time I have to spend with my family!! If interested in trying this, use ADVENTURES40 to get $40 off your first order!
