Is any one else sick of the cold? Of the kiddos having colds? I know we are all ready for the sunshine and warmth and health of spring! Goodness knows, in Minnesota, spring is still ages away. Especially after these back to back snowstorms we are currently experiencing.


In addition to back to back snow storms, we have battled back to back colds all winter. Now that we have a kid in elementary school, she brings home ALL THE GERMS! I love you Vivi, but don't touch me until you wash your hands haha. With all the cold germs, come scratchy and sore throats. I don't feel comfortable giving the girls cough drops because they are so young. So when we heard of Lolleez organic throat soothing pops, we had to try them! And lets just say, we are hooked! The girls feel like they are getting a treat, because, hello it's a sucker! But I feel good because they are made of USDA certified organic like natural fruit pectin and organic honey. They are gluten free, dairy free and nut free. And they come in three delicious flavors: watermelon, strawberry, and orange mango. So the girls feel better asap! Vivi actually said she can't wait to get sick again so she can have a "cough sucker"!

Name Bubbles

I just have to share a fun new company I discovered! Name Bubbles!* Basically, they are personalized kids labels that are peel and stick while also being laundry, microwave, and dishwasher safe! You guys! The possibilities are endless! Just today, Edith left her water bottle at the Library and all I could think was, "I should have put a label on it!" I have since labeled every water bottle, notebook, lunchbox, backpack and the list goes on and on! They even have clothing labels! So if you dress your kids identically often (*ahem, ahem), then you can label each piece so the kiddos don't fight over whose jacket is whose.... because their name is on it! Oh what shall I do with all the time I just saved by never having to answer the question, "is this mine?" ever again!


Other super cool products they have that are worth mentioning: personalized bracelets. Let's say you are going to a super busy or crowded place (Disneyland, the zoo, the airport...), you can customize the bracelets to say whatever info you would like. I got some that say "If lost, please call my mom, Mindy Johnson XXX-XXX-XXXX." There are also shoe stickers to help kids learn right and left shoes.

See what I mean? Genius! And totally handy! Go check out Name Bubbles now!

Photo Book by Pinhole Press

I am so terrible at printing photos. I take a million photos a day (only a slight exaggeration) and yet, our walls are bare and I have no tangible evidence of those photos. Just digital files buried on external hard drives. When* contacted me about trying their petite flay lay book, I was so excited! You guys, it was so easy! I just made a file of some of my favorite photos from this fall, imported them onto the site, and then dragged them all to the pages and done! The whole thing took less than 10 mins! And the girls LOVE seeing all the fun memories from this year. Total win! Especially for only $9.99!
