I'm back! Where have I been?

Happy 2015 everyone! I am so glad to get back to blogging. I have so many fun things and ideas planned for 2015. I also have a lot of catching up to do. 

So where have I been? 
I wrote my last post in November, then life got pretty hectic for me. My mom had became really sick, we were in the middle of looking into buying a house, I started a photography business, my husband started a new job with a new schedule, and not to mention the holidays sneaking up into the mix of it all. 

I apologize to all my readers and sponsors for leaving unannounced with no reason or explanation. 
I guess, I was just overwhelmed and dropped everything to focus on family.

My goal this year is to blog at least once a week if not more. I have so much planned for you all. 
Lots of great things are happening for my family this year as well.
We officially move into our new place this March, JJ (my oldest) is starting soccer this spring for the very first time as well as starting a new preschool and my little Eli will be turning 1 this April ALREADY! 

I can't wait to share our story with you all. It's good to be back and I am already excited to write my next post.

Freshly Picked Moccasins

I'm sure you've noticed from my Instagram how much we love Freshly Picked Moccasins!
Freshly Picked Moccasins was founded in 2009 by Susan Petersen who started this small business from her home, (you all know how much I strongly support work at home mom brands).
These 100% leather moccasins are made in the USA and fit babies and toddlers from newborn to size 10 shoe.
I was surprised how fast they shipped , arriving in a nice padded envelope with the moccs in a small canvas bag with Freshly Picked's logo on it.
(They also came with a sheet of Freshly Picked stickers, but my 3 year old ran off with them before I could snap a picture).
These are actually Ebony(black), but my camera makes them look silver.
Once opening the package, I noticed right away an amazing new leather smell.  It was like opening a new Coach purse on Christmas morning! I instantly fell in love by their cuteness and was so excited to put them on my boys feet.

If you didn't already know, soft sole shoes like Freshly Picked, help your toddler build proper foot muscles. 
I love how durable the leather is, we have used this pair for a month now and haven't noticed any wears or tears.
Freshly Picked not only offers 100% high quality leather but also Suede, which are my favorite!
They are super soft and hold up really nice. 
My 3 year old loves them!
Freshly Picked moccasins now come with their logo stamped on the bottom of every shoe.
I absolutely love this Stone Suede color!

My 3 year old loves his Freshly Picked moccasins. They are really easy for him to slip on himself and go.
Instagram Photo, my own purchase.
So the big question I always get is are they worth the $60? 
YES! At first I was skeptical too but once I received my first pair, I was hooked!

Diaper Dawgs Heavy Dooty Wipes take on more than just the booty!

I can not rave enough about how much I love Diaper Dawgs Heavy Dooty Cloth Wipes!
 If you haven't read my full review on them yet, check it out here!
Not only do we use Diaper Dawgs wipes for diaper changes, I have now findd myself using them for multiple things around the house, that make life a little bit easier.

Diaper Dawgs cloth wipes are like no other, with their genius sewn in pocket on one side. 
Made with super soft and absorbent bamboo terry fabric.
After receiving my Diaper Dawgs wipes, about 2 months later I had to order more! They were always my go to wipes during diaper changes. Now they are my go to wipes for everything!

One of my favorite ways to use my Diaper Dawgs Wipes are in the bath tub!
Funny story about how I began using my Diaper Dawg Wipes in the tub.
 One night I was giving my boys their bath when I realized I ran out of clean wash cloths. I ran and grabbed a cloth wipe from my stash and a Diaper Dawg wipe happened to be the one sitting on top. I figured, they were similar to our baby wash clothes and could get the job done.  
Once I slipped the cloth wipe on and began washing my son, I realized this was even better than our regular wash cloth! I found that the Diaper Dawg wipe wasn't slipping out of my hands and I was able to spread the cloth out more to cover more areas faster. 
So much easier to use than our baby wash clothes and from that night on, Diaper Dawgs Cloth wipes became part of our nightly baths.

Another one of my favorite new ways to use our Diaper Dawgs Cloth Wipes are for ice packs!
If you have boys then you know how much they play rough!
My little guy is always falling or running into things, bumping his head here and there, and I'm the crazy mom who's running after him to put ice on ever bump and bruise.
My little guy always complains about holding the ice bag and how it's so cold that it hurts his little hands.
So one day when he really bumped his head hard to where he really needed ice, I grabbed one of our Diaper Dawg wipes and slipped the ice bag into the pocket.
Cold hand problem solved! 
Love, love, love this idea and even found my husband using them for this reason also!

So now, I have told you how we use our Diaper Dawgs Heavy Dooty Cloth Wipes to make our lives a little easiers. 
Diaper changes, bath time, boo-boos, and even cleaning!
Yes cleaning!
Of course, I have different Diaper Dawg wipes set aside specifically for cleaning.
I have found that these wipes are awesome for cleaning stove tops, windows, counter tops, pretty much any surface area around the house. I love how Diaper Dawgs wipes protect my hand from any dirt and grime!

There are so many other ways to use these awesome cloth wipes. If you have not yet tried these wipes, I highly suggest them to anyone!!
