When I was offered the chance to share about Werther’s Original, I must say I did a little happy dance at the computer. I have always loved Werther’s Original hard candies and was eager to try out their other products.

Oh, so you noticed the title of this post has the word sweepstakes in it?

Making Our Own Food Pouches with Infantino

I received free product to produce this post, but all opinions are my own. This post may contain affiliate links.

When Owen first arrived, I thought about making our own baby food. Plenty of people do, so I figured I’d give it a go. Well… we didn’t end up doing that, and now at a year old, he’s pretty much done with “baby” food. However, Charlie (at 3.5) still loves pouches! When we were given the chance to try out Infantino’s Fresh Squeezed line, I thought this was the perfect time to make our own.

I set everything up the night before. When I opened the Squeeze Station box I was surprised at how simple it was! All I had to do to set it up was wash the parts and put it back together. To put your station together, you just need to slide the pouches into slots and screw on the tube. How easy is that?

Slow Cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Dip

#spon: I'm required to disclose a relationship between our site and Save-A-Lot. This could include providing us with content, product, access or other forms of payment.

Most people follow a sport in one form or another. In our house, we’re football people. And I mean, WE. I know some wives pretend to follow football and “cheer” for their husband’s team, but have no real idea what is going on. This is not the case in our house. I was a Ravens fan long before my husband and I started dating. He’s just lucky he is too.

Charlie loves to watch football with Mommy and Daddy now. He says “Go Ravens”! And he can echo us in the same exact tone when we say “Come on….” (be that a good thing or not).

When we’re watching football we sometimes forget to eat real meals, so our snacking has to be heavy! And what’s better for a football snack than some warm cheesy meaty dip?

Owen is 1!

I can’t believe that my baby, my last baby, turns 1 today! I know it’s so cliché and everyone says it, but it’s true: our babies really do grow up too quick. We had his 1st Birthday Party this past Saturday, so stay tuned for some jungle party fun, but I wanted to share some quick pics for his 1st birthday.

This is our first picture of Owen. I do regret not having someone take a pic of all 3 of us. I see tons of pics like that where mom is still on the table, but most moms having c-sections probably weren’t screaming in pain the majority of time.

Feel Confident About LBL with Poise

Thanks to Poise for sponsoring today’s post.

So here we go. This is definitely a post that’s a bit different from recipes and crafts, but one that the moms will totally get. You know that feeling when you sneeze, laugh, or maybe even jump? The one that feels like a little tinkle maybe? That’s called light bladder leakage (LBL). I know… not really a pleasant thing to talk about, but what’s really unpleasant is having to wear a giant pad just because a little LBL might happen.

Don’t let the fear of LBL change your daily routine! If you want to laugh, jump around with your kiddos or exercise without worrying about a little tinkle, do it! Right now, you can grab a free sample of the new Poise Microliners!
