I don't know about you, but when I'm going to stretch or exercise the best way to get myself into the mood is with the right music. I've been fortunate to receive lots of great new music lately for review, and the latest on my playlist is from Hillsong United. Since I'm expecting a baby in October I'll admit my exercise routine is not strenuous, however I do enjoy stretching and going for walks. Hillsong United's new album "Empires" has been the perfect blend of mellow sound and uplifting lyrics for my stretching routine.

Ragú® Chili Mac Makes Meal Time Saucesome

I received free product coupons in exchange for this post, all views and opinions are my own. 
I'm a huge fan of keeping things simple. When it comes to cooking for my family, I like to use what we have on hand. Recently, I was asked to recreate a delicious recipe from Ragú®. I took on the challenge and didn't think much about it until later. Well, just as life does we were thrown a curveball when our main sewer line collapsed. (insert gasp here) Without being able to run water in our house we had to go stay with my parents for a few days. When you don't have access to water in your kitchen you tend to eat out a lot. Once we were able to come back home, I was excited for things to get back to normal. I was even excited to cook again for my family! What didn't occur to me at the time was we hadn't bought groceries for several days since we weren't home much. I went to the pantry to see what we had that would go together, and there sat our jar of Ragú® Hearty Traditional Sauce.

Get A Fresh Machine With OxiClean!

I received the product mentioned below in exchange for this post, all views and opinions are my own. 
Having a husband that works around coal means our washing machine takes a beating. My husband bought our washing machine before we got married so our machine is about twelve years old. In those twelve years I've washed lots and lots of laundry. More than I care to think about really. Over time the inside of our machine has really built up some grime. We have very hard water which doesn't help anything in our home, but the washing machine has really been neglected. I was interested to see if OxiClean had what it would take to get even our machine clean again.

New Music From PLUMB {Review and Giveaway}

Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway. Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.
I was privileged to have the opportunity to listen to the new album Exhale by PLUMB and now I have a new favorite. PLUMB is a name I've heard for quite a while, but I've never really been familiar with her music. It's a real shame I never sought out her albums, because I've been missing out. I'll definitely be seeking out her older albums to catch up and have even more hours of music to enjoy. As you know I listen to music while I work, but I'll be taking this album in my truck too.

A Special Mother's Day #AmazingHood Giveaway

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Dreft. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review and compensation, but all opinions are 100% mine. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
With Mother's day just around the corner my mind keeps flashing back to the first moment I realized I was going to be a mom. All the joy, fear and excitement made me a huge ball of emotions that can't really be described as just one thing. Those feelings have never really stopped through each stage of the Booper's infanthood, toddlerhood and now as a preschooler soon to be kindergartner I still feel like there's nothing like being a mom. Last month I was feeling particularly yucky, and as I was cooking dinner the smell was overwhelming and made me want to gag. That's when I began to wonder....could I be pregnant? When you struggle with infertility you never want to have thoughts of being pregnant, so I blocked out the thought...but I couldn't for long. Soon I was feeling nausea all the time, so I broke down and bought the tests.
