Paige's Bookshelf: "Phoenix Child" By Alica Mckenna-Johnson

I received this item free in exchange for my honest opinion. All views and opinions are my own.
When Sara goes to sleep on the eve of her fifteenth birthday as a normal looking somewhat average teen, and wakes up the next morning looking and feeling like a completely different person, her life may just never be the same!

Enjoying The Scent Of Pine From Christmas Forest

I received the below mentioned product in exchange for this post. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
This year has simply flew by! I'm still in shock that it's almost December. While waiting for our baby girl to arrive I kept wishing time to move faster now looking back I can't believe how quickly the time passed. This week as we celebrate and give thanks for all we have I can't help but thank God that I've been blessed with loving family and a cozy home. There's nothing like coming home and spending time with family. My desire as a mom and wife is to make our home inviting and a place of comfort for my family. This holiday season I'm getting some help from Christmas Forest. Bringing a timeless look of the season with one of the gorgeous wreaths Christmas Forest adds charm to our home.

Thirsty? Reach For The #GreenBottleCap

This post is sponsored by Dasani and The Coca-Cola Company.
As we approach the holidays and quickly close in on the new year I've been thinking a lot about my life goals and health goals. After just having our little sweet pea I'm trying to lose some baby weight so I keep telling myself to drink more water. I have to remind myself to drink and when I reach for something cool I try to make sure I'm grabbing some water more often than not. As a busy on the go mom I will buy a bottle of water when I'm away from home. I feel good about my choice to drink water, but I used to feel guilty about all the plastic being used in those bottles. Recently, I've learned more about Dasani's mindfulness for the environment and how they're using less plastic in their bottles. Find out more and why you'll want to reach for the #GreenBottleCap the next time you buy water!

Dreaming Of A Second Honeymoon With Hyatt

This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.
Over ten years ago I married the guy who was made just for me! We were fortunate to have planned our honeymoon for a lovely location in Cancun. It was so romantic to be just the two of us far from everyone we knew, and to just sit on the lovely beach with our toes in the sand. Every year as we pass our anniversary I start dreaming of a second honeymoon. This year as the weather has turned cloudy and the rainy season starts I can't stop thinking about a romantic getaway in the sun. Next year, I am seriously considering Playa del Carmen, Mexico – the less touristy sister to Cancun. I looked at a few hotels and I would love to visit the newly opened Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen. It gets great reviews with easy beach and night life/dining access. Plus, from now until 11/30, this hotel (and many others) is 20% off if you stay two or more nights. Check out their Winter Savings going on now!

For The Love Of A Cousin: An Adoption Story #NAM15

I was compensated for this post, the views and opinions expressed here are my own. 
Did you know November is National Adoption Month? In honor of #NAM15 it's my pleasure to share my own experience with adoption and why it's so dear to my heart.

If you ask me about my childhood I would have to say I had an amazing one. If you asked me what made my childhood amazing I would say it was my family. If you asked me about some of my best memories they would most likely have to include my cousins. Because my memory isn't the best on details I can't remember if I was five or six when we got the news that my aunt and uncle were adopting. All I can remember was the emphatic joy that swept over my sister and I as we instantly started plotting all the fun we would have with our new family members. Cousins. It's such a small word but when I read or say it out loud my heart swells with the love I feel for them.

Making Memories With Lincoln Log Toys {Giveaway}

I received the below mentioned product in exchange for this post. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
When you're a kid there's nothing quite as exciting as making your Christmas wish list. I know the Booper has been adding to his list almost every day. While I keep reminding him he won't get everything on his list he still enjoys just thinking about all the possibilities. I don't blame him. When I was little I loved daydreaming about all the toys. One thing that hasn't change since I was young is kids are still adding Lincoln Logs to their wish list.

Welcome Little One!

Meet our newest family member. Little miss was born on October 19 at 8:30 am and has been rocking our world every since! She was 20 inches long and weighed in at 8 pounds and 15.4 ounces, which was not as big as they had estimated. My scheduled C-section went wonderfully and was a world apart from the emergency one I had with the Booper. She has a head full of gorgeous brown hair perfect for headbands and bows! Little miss had to spend one night in the NICU after swallowing some amniotic fluid, but she was able to join me in my room the next day. The Booper is enjoying being a big brother and has taken on the new role with great enthusiasm. I've been so proud of him through all these big life changes! Take a peek below to see some intimate shots of our family welcoming our sweet baby girl.
