Mamaway Nursing Bra

Feel

Breastfeeding is often so uncomfortable (and painful), so a nursing bra that’s comfortable makes a big difference.  You might even forget you’re wearing this nursing bra.  I want to wear it all the time.  Keep in mind, though, that it doesn’t provide a lot of support. If that’s your thing you’ll want to wear a different bra during the day. Continue reading →

Silicone Cooking Gloves


I cook a lot at home, for many reasons (to save money, it’s healthier, it tastes better).  So you’d think I wouldn’t be such a wimp around heat.  I hate getting hot casseroles out of the oven!!  I also have arthritis, so it’s difficult sometimes when dealing with heavy items (hello, cast iron skillet!).  I need a good grip on dishware, and these silicone cooking gloves do the trick.

Silicone Cooking Gloves in Action

For years, I used square pot holders, but I have trouble getting a good grip with them.  Oven mitts are big and sometimes get in the way.  And I’m sure we’ve all experienced the nastiness that comes from using potholders and oven mitts that are cloth.  It’s no wonder that silicone cooking gloves are so popular now.  But I need to tell you – they are NOT all the same!

Backseat Car Organizer


I’ve long had a problem keeping my car clutter free.  I can’t help it – there are just too many things I carry around, and I spend far too much time in my car.  Add to that all the things that moms carry on a daily basis, and our cars resemble the aftermath of a tornado!  If you’re like me, you need a backseat car organizer

Fancy Mobility makes a great backseat car organizer.  This product will make your life easier, trust me.  There are many mesh pockets that can hold lots of stuff, so you can easily see what’s inside.  Since this video, I’ve added baby wipes, disinfectant, a couple of diapers, a small activity book, a pencil, and a couple of small toys. In the visor, I added my parking pass for work, a pen, a checkbook, a couple of CDs, and a handicapped parking pass for when my dad travels with me.

Beat Stress with Lavender Essential Oil

Those of you who know me in real life know that I’m a Type A personality all the way.  I like for things to be a certain way, and I get disappointed in myself when things don’t go as well as I had hoped.  I’m way too hard on myself.  Unfortunately, those of us who are like this have a problem with stress.  Even if you aren’t like me, chances are that you live a very stressful life (because that’s just the way it is now, right?).  I’ll tell you how I beat stress – lavender essential oil!

I recently discovered essential oils.  I admit that I was skeptical, but boy was I proven wrong!  I only purchased essential oils to make a great homemade toothpaste (which I LOVE).  Then a couple of months ago, Sam and I were congested. I used some eucalyptus essential oil, and we were better than if we had used over-the-counter medications.

Lavender Essential Oil

Since I had found success with essential oils, I decided to try to combat all of the stress in my life.  I used lavender essential oil from Avenir Oils and haven’t been disappointed in the least!  I’m telling you, if you have stress, you’ve got to give this a try!!
