Reading Wednesday + Giveaway // Sacred Pregnancy

When I was pregnant with Edith I found myself doing a lot of reading in preparation for her arrival. While I wasn’t big into the parenting books there were a few pregnancy books that I just fell in love with.  This time around however I am kicking myself a bit for not spending more time reading two of my favorite pregnancy books Birthing From Within and Sacred Pregnancy.

sacred pregnancy

Sacred Pregnancy is just an amazing book that helps prepare you for birth and motherhood but also forces you to really focus in every week on your pregnancy. I think one thing that we forget when it comes to pregnancy is that it’s not all about the baby but also about the mother. Sacred Pregnancy brings the focus back to the mother and the rite of passage from pregnancy to motherhood.

You can read my full review of Sacred Pregnancy here.

This is seriously a beautiful book/journal for the mom-to-be and for that reason I would love to give one copy away in your choice of a paperback copy or a Kindle copy. This giveaway is not sponsored and I will be providing the winner with the book at my own cost.

Giveaway // Happy Family // Happiest Toddler Package

Disclaimer: We received a Happiest Toddler Package in exchange for this review and giveaway. As always all opinions are our own.

On a whole I try to make as much of Edith’s snacks and meals but some days it just doesn’t happen and that is when I am thankful for brands like Happy Family. We started out with Happy Baby squeeze packets when Edith was around 7 months and since then we have tried a number of their products. I say we because I have eaten or at least tasted most of them as well.Screen Shot 2014-05-19 at 6.58.38 AM

Now that Edith is a toddler and we are constantly on the go I ALWAYS have to have some sort of snack in my bag for her and while I often prefer whole fruits and things those get pretty nasty when you forget them in your bag so Happy Family to the rescue. Our favorites are the Happy Tot Coconut, the berry favor is our favorite (yes mine too!). We recently tried the Happy Tot Toddler Cookies and well they are a new family favorite- seriously yummy!

You can find numerous Nutritional Resources, guides and charts for Happy Family Brands here. You can also visit their website at to learn more about the Happy Family Brand company and our their organic products.

{Giveaway} Erin Condren E-Gift Card

  Disclaimer: I was compensated with a $25 e-gift card by for this post. All opinions are my own. 

I am a planner. I mean extreme planner and my husband loves to give me a hard time about it especially when I spend hours planning weekend getaways. Now that we have a little one and I am trying to be a work-at-home mom as well as a stay-at-home mom (more on that in another post) I have gone into planning over drive. The one problem I have though is that I don’t have a a good planner.

ErinCondren-LRG_laminatedWell after weeks of research (yes weeks) I finally have come to the conclusion that has the best option. It has all the features that I am looking for including a calendar with a month view, week view and it has a spot of goals/tasks and a spot where I can put our menu plan and my workout plan for the week. Seriously it seems great and I can’t wait for mine to arrive.ErinCondren-LRG_monthly

Now you might be saying well I would rather do my planning all on my smart phone or tablet and I get that so if that is more your thing don’t worry has a number of other really great products that you could use this gift card for including holiday cards, notepads, pens, a cover for your iPhone, or even some really fun wrapping paper (the holiday’s are coming fast!).ErinCondren-Pens-LRG_set

So I am now just waiting to get my Life Planner and once I do I’ll be sharing it in more detail but until then it’s giveaway time!
