How We Boost Our Immunity w/ Sambucol

My favorite season is just a few weeks away! Fall brings so much fun with it. You've got pumpkin picking and leaves falling...and lots and lots of germs flying around. Which is why, especially around this time of year, we are loading up on alllllllll the vitamins to help boost our immune system!

One of our favorite ways to load up on vitamin A and C is through Sambucol Elderberry Gummies, Syrup and Powder. I know, I know. This is sounding like an ad right now and I mean, we are collaborating together on this post but I want to let you guys know how much we really do love this product. Back when I first started giving Hunter (before Brody and Sienna were even born!) vitamins, I was researching the heck out of everything. I was looking for a great, natural immunity booster and happened upon elderberry, which in turn brought me to the VERY highly recommend Sambucol and we've been taking it as a family ever since!

Sharing My Love for Reading w/ Priddy Books

If it’s one thing I can pat myself on the back and say I nailed as a parent was passing down my love for reading to my children. *Pats self on back* No one tell my kids I wrote that. But seriously. They LOVE being read to and it makes the bookworm in me so, so happy. I have so many memories of cuddling up with a book and getting lost in it for hours!

6/16/20: Sienna's Birth Story

Anyone remember that show on TLC called A Baby Story? Oh my gosh. It was one of my faves when I was younger! Now I love reading and hearing friends and fellow blogger's birth stories. It always fascinates me how different each one is!

Interested in hearing about my first two? You can read Hunter's birth story here and Brody's here!

How We're Diversifying Our Kid's Library

I know a few parents might be struggling to find the right words on how to talk to their children about what's going on lately. We are HUGE into books around here and with the current events taking place, it's been eye-opening how unvaried our little library is. Books are great tools to help discuss tough topics, while still keeping it age-appropriate.

Here's a few books I've found that we'll be adding to our library that switch up the protagonist, bring in a history and help us with different discussions.

Where to Find The Best Secondhand Clothes for Baby Girls

I was SO hellbent on having everything being new when I was pregnant with Hunter. So much money was spent on the most top-of-the-line toys, strollers, shoes, and clothes - and then so grown out of so quickly. With Brody, he got a lot of new things but so much of his stuff was hand-me-downs from Hunter. He didn't know the difference and about 50% of everything was barely used because Hunter had grown out of everything so quickly. Lesson learned for this mama.

Now granted, we definitely got our shop on for this baby girl (before stores were shutdown) but since then, I've had SO much fun scouring online secondhand shops and BST pages for sweet little dresses and outfits. Today I wanted to share some of my most cherished secondhand outfits and my favorite places to find them. There's just something special about receiving someone's hand-me-down's - someone's memories! - that is truly special and probably one of my most favorite things to buy.
