2013 Top Posts + Over $800 in Giveaways!


Two Thousand Fourteen is knocking on the door, and I can’t help but feel like it’s one of those party guests that misread the invitation and arrived while I’m still unshowered and hurrying to vacuum the living room. Anyone else feel this way? So when a group of our blogging buddies suggested we do a Top Posts of 2013 blog hop and giveaway — $800+ in gift cards are up for grabs!! — it seemed like the perfect way to bring some closure to 2013. As I was combing through our archives to pull out my favorite posts for our recap, I was excited about everything we have accomplished in 2013, and even if I’m still in in my pajamas, 2014 is going to be great!

Grab a Spoon + Giveaway!



[/js]While this may be a sponsored post, I must start by saying I truly believe what I’m writing. Dannon Oikos Greek 0% Fat Plain Yogurt is a staple at my house. As long as I have Oikos yogurt in the fridge, all I need to do is grab a spoon, and I have a healthy convenient snack (or breakfast or lunch).

If you’re new to Greek yogurt, it’s a thicker and creamier yogurt that is packed with nutrition. Each cup of Dannon Oikos Greek yogurt contains twice the amount of protein of regular lowfat yogurt, which I have found helps me feel fuller longer. (Oikos Greek Nonfat yogurt has 12 -14g Protein (24%DV) while regular lowfat yogurt: 5g protein (10%DV) per 5.3oz.) And to clarify, yes, even Dannon Oikos 0% Fat is thick and creamy!

Beautiful Adventures with Shutterfly

Shutterfly Home Decor Living Room 1

As we head into the cozy fall months, it’s fun to remember our summer adventures. So when Shutterfly asked us to create some home decor inspired by our recent travels, I knew exactly what vacations I wanted to be reminded of daily.

We travel quite a bit as a family, but some trips definitely turn out better than others. However, we’ve never regretted a vacation — when things don’t go as planned, we simply call it an adventure! And, as it turns out, my family LOVES a good adventure.

I just adore our new inspirational pillow and soft fleece blanket ensemble on our living room couch. This quote is exactly how I picture married life: a beautiful adventure with my best friend and our kids. It’s a fabulous daily reminder for me that, just like some trips, when things don’t go as planned, it’s simply another adventure.
