Travel In Style And Save On Luggage With Groupon Goods

This post is sponsored by Groupon, however all opinions are my own. 
I love to travel. However odd this might be, I actually had a strange love of luggage before I learned how much I actually liked traveling. I bought my first set of luggage when I was eighteen. Working at a discount store I would see all the new products as they came in and while unboxing a skid full of luggage I knew I would be buying myself a set at my next paycheck. I guess somewhere deep down in my heart I longed to see the world at least get out of Indiana! I've had my opportunities for travel with my family and now I'm making arrangements to attend my first ever travel summit. My excitement to see a new place outweighs my nervousness. This time around I'll be traveling with my baby girl in tow. It will be a new experience to fly with a baby without my husband, so I'm doing a little more planning than usual. One of my plans is to purchase a new piece of luggage for the trip. While I really want to splurge and buy a high quality spinner-wheel carry on I don't want to pay too much since I'll need my extra money for the trip.

When Kids Are Sick Amwell Helps Mom Save The Day

This is a sponsored conversation from Mums the Word Network and Amwell. All opinions are my own.
We've all been there. Sickness never comes at a convenient time. Last month we decided to make a spur of the moment trip to visit family on the coast. The day before we were about to go out of town the Booper started coughing and sounded like he had a clothespin on his nose. I called our regular doctor, but it just so happened our doctor was gone on vacation. Busy with packing, making arrangements for Luna (our dog), and rescheduling deliveries, I had to tack on trying to find a clinic that could get us in. We don't have any clinics in our hometown, and the one I usually go to always has a long wait time. With the baby in tow and all the packing I still had to do I just didn't want to wait that long to see a doctor. I didn't really think I had a choice. I was wrong. Amwell was created for busy moms, and anyone who needs options for talking to a doctor even if you don't have insurance.

Being a real mom now I still love dressing my kids in adorable outfits and it gives me so much joy to see my sweet baby doll wearing a beautiful dress from Feltman Brothers.

Struggling With Infertility When You're A Mom

This is a sponsored conversation from Mums the Word Network and The Stork OTC. All opinions are my own.
The emotional scars of infertility aren't visible, but they are all too real. Many women suffer in silence only having the strength to just get through another month of waiting. When you're wait is finally over and you have the baby you've hoped for, dreamed of, and prayed for a lot of friends and family seem to act like you've somehow crossed over to the fertile, baby making promised land, however that's not always the case. For us, the struggle continued even after we became parents. We were very blessed to have our son. I'm truly thankful every day for my sweet boy, but I can't even count how many people asked if we planned on giving him a sibling. The frustration of being a one-time mom yet still not being able to conceive again. I felt a whole new kind of guilt, only this time it was for our son. I didn't want him to be an only child, at the same time I didn't feel comfortable sharing my infertility after becoming a mom when others were still trying for their first baby.

Staying Cool With Luvs Diaper Deals #ShareTheLuv

This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs.  I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.
There's no doubt being a parent is a lot of work. As summer closes, and kids start back to school all the necessities can really take a toll on your budget. Having a baby in diapers makes our weekly expenses go up, so I love to save any way I can. We can cut corners on certain school supplies, but I can't take chances when it comes to keeping our baby girl's bum comfy and dry! Luvs the official diaper of experienced moms is offering big savings in this Sunday's paper. Find out more about how you can save on diapers with ibotta below.
