Garmin Vivofit 3

My kids have been asking me for a activity tracking watch for a couple of years now. After reseraching up I found that the vivofit 2 by Garmin was the most affordable for the features we wanted. Happy to partner up with them today to share the details! First and foremost the watches are comfortable, my kids sleep in them without any irritation which is saying something as Hayes won’t even wear jeans. 😉 You can swim in it as well which I feel like the less reasons we need to take it off, the less likely to lose it! It tracks … Read more

best of: cold + sinus

Poor Cal has had the worst sinus issues this week and I’ve been pulling out all the stops. He’s gotten better with each day so I didn’t worry about getting an antibiotic but here’s what I used to help things move along! Children’s ACF (Acute Cold + Flu) by Buried Treasure. I’ve sworn by this stuff for years but only recently found the kid’s formula. It tastes so much better but still has all the immune support you need, like elderberry, echinacea, vitamin C etc. I put this in my kids smoothies all year round to build their immune system … Read more

stress + time management

My stress levels have been absolutely next level the last handful of months. And just when I think it can’t get worse, it seems to compound! When I think about it, I picture a person running from a tidal wave in a movie or something. I just know I gotta keep moving or I’m toast! Of course this is all assuming you can’t do anything to fix your situation, if you can — do that. For me I know it will be stressful until our house is done and Russ starts working again. It just is what it is! I … Read more

cold care package

There is a nasty viral cold going around that poor Cal caught earlier this week. This is the first time he’s been sick since he was little and he’s moaning and crying and asking when he’s going to feel better and breaking my heart! His buddy from school heard he was sick and brough the sweetest little care package. It lifted his spirits so much and mine, too! So I wanted to recreate it today with Maty’s – which is an organic cough and cold line – that makes this amazing chest rub among other awesome things! Their Chest Rub caught … Read more

vermont recap

As promised here is a recap about my trip with Stonyfield to beautiful Vermont! I have been to New York City in the Fall but out in the country on the east coast is a whole different story. SO unreal. Stonyfield took us on a tour of two of the dairy farms they not only get supply from, but actively support and mentor and I loved it more than I can say! They’re also giving a way a month supply of their yogurt on my Instagram @smallfryblog so don’t miss that! Here is the crew we went with, along with … Read more

Sponsored by Wholesome, all opinions are my own. Halloween! I love it so much, and for awhile I even love having the candy stash. Until I don’t. You feel me?

Their candy is GMO free, natural ingredients and Organic, too! In addition, Cal is making some new friends at school and one of his new buddies has severe allergies.

All I Want for Christmas

By Emily. Last Christmas I was pretty pregnant and in tears complaining to Russ about our mattress.  It was expensive and THE WORST. We had it for probably 8 years and it looked like the tetons with its sinking sides and peak in the middle. I was ready to get a new bed that very day, but my conservative spender husband said he’d only be okay with such a purchase if we researched all options. So we did! For a year we read, tested, asked around, saved up, when finally we decided! I thought any of you out there on the same … Read more
