3 Easy Ways To Keep Your Pets Healthy: Tips To Prolong Your Pet’s Life

As you might already know, I have two dogs. They are small breed dogs – a puggle and a pug. True to my geek nature, they are named after Game of Thrones characters (Sansa & Khaleesi). They are truly a part of our family. They sleep in bed with my husband and myself during the week – and often sleep in bed with my daughters on the weekends. we want them to live as long as possible, so we have started doing some things at home to keep them healthy. We can only hope that these prolong their lives, even for just a short while.

Tobacco Free New York State Urges Public to Protect Children | #SeenEnoughTobacco

As a mom of two young kids, one thing I am very concerned about is tobacco and cigarettes. They see them everywhere and my husband and I have been trying to teach them about how unhealthy they are. Yes, we even sometimes over exaggerate with words like “ew” and “gross” when we are near someone smoking, but it seems to be helping. I was very pleased to hear about the Seen Enough Tobacco Campaign that Tobacco Free New York has launched because kids really have seen enough.

Let’s Be Real and Discuss Miscarriage & Infertility | #TTCwithStorkOTC #becomingadad

Every once in a while I really open up to you guys and get (probably) too personal. One of my very first posts was about my home water birth with my youngest daughter. I am not sure if I have really mentioned it before, but my first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. My husband and I had only been married for a couple of months and were thrilled. When we found out we lost the baby, it was extremely hard. In fact, it was not confirmed for about a month which was very hard on us.

5 Reasons to Run the Castaway Cay 5K on Your #DisneyCruise | #runDisney

I have never run a race in my life. My husband was a runner in high school though, so he is not stranger to them. I have always wanted to do a 5K or 10K – especially with Disney – so I was thrilled to learn about the Castaway Cay 5K that I could run while on my Disney Cruise! As tough as it was, it was actually a blast – and I was so proud of myself after doing it. I finished in 36 minutes, which I think is pretty good considering I was eating cruise food and enjoying wine for 6 solid days before it! I enjoyed it so much that I think I caught the running bug! I am hoping to do a run at Disney World next – perhaps the Princess Run?!?

Colgate is the Newest Brand to Join the Amazon Dash Program | #Colgate

I have fallen in love with the Amazon Dash Button. I have mentioned it to you before, but it is a Wi-Fi connected device that reorders your favorite product with the press of a button. It is easy to set up and even easier to use! Just open up your Amazon shopping app on your smartphone to connect your home Wi-Fi network to your dash button. Once connected, a single press of the Dash Button automatically places your order with Amazon Prime free shipping – ensuring you never run out of your essentials again! I use this for several of my daily use items, so I was thrilled when I discovered Colgate signed on with the program. Colgate is my go to brand for toothpaste, mouthwash, and even toothbrushes. I know that I can trust them and being able to reorder what I need with the click of a button makes my life a lot easier!

Counseling Today: Forget the Play-Doh – Grow a Plant! | #Gardening

While much of the world got a hearty laugh out of the well-meaning gesture of college officials handing out Play Doh to students who were distraught over Donald Trump’s victory in the last presidential election, it was a nice thought. Actually, it did something to lighten the spirits of some people. However, it did little for those who were running around campuses destroying everything in sight. Some psychologists suggest that we forget therapeutic Play Doh and focus on growing plants instead. Here are just some of the reasons why gardening is actually therapeutic and great for our mental health.

How to Spend Your Me Time

Me time? What is that? I hear you shout. For moms in the 21 st century, there doesn’t seem to be much ‘me time’. Many work busy jobs, as well as looking after their families. Those that stay at home have lives full of kid’s appointments and events, or they are just with the children, all the time, which can be more challenging than anything else. You need some time off. Let the mom guilt go, and spend a little time every week, doing something for you.
