I thought this never was going to happen!! We started introducing the potty idea about one year ago when Avia's best friend started using the big girl potty but Avia had no interest! She started to wear big girl undies and then quickly started rebelling! It wasn't until 10 days ago when she wanted to wear her new undies from @zoocchini - these have made potty training more fun because of the adorable animals on her undies. She's excited to get up every day and pick out undies. Zoocchini has tons of baby/toddler items good for all occasions. Even if your not potty training you should check them out!
She's officially 8 days into going potty on the girl girl potty and is doing great. This potty chart idea my mom used on me is also a huge help! We pick out a new sticker every time she uses the potty and there's small prizes along the way. Avia loves books so we decided to add a "new book" square, a "new toy" and "ice cream date" square and then the grand prize is a trip to the beach! She's currently half way to her beach trip, incentives make the journey that much more meaningful. Hopefully some of these tips and tricks help if you go through this!
I'm a sucker for good skin care finds!! This is definitely one of my all time favorites. Being a #smallshop owner myself I'm a big small shop supporter because I know how important that is. The whole family is sick yet again for the second month in a row so we've been spending a ton of time in the bath and showering! As soon as I got my love collection from @liveinspiredorganics I cracked these bad boys open and started using them every day. I left the sugar scrub in the shower and my husband used it the same day. After using half the container 🙄 he got out and yelled at me in the living room to ask me what this stuff was. He was in love! It smells good, it feels good and makes your skin so soft. That's not all though, I told him to use the velvet butter after he got out and I could hear him "mmmm" and "ahhh-ing" for like 10 minutes. It was pretty funny to say the least. The collection came complete with a lip balm (which I carry in purse all the time) and herbal tea which we drank in the first two days. Talk about pamper yourself! These products have made being sick a luxury! 🤣
The best part about all of this is I get to share it with you. I'm actually hosting a giveaway with @liveinspiredorganics right now. She's giving away TWO love sets! Yes, TWO! There will be one winner who gets to gift the second set to a friend, family member or significant other! Man or women there's something for everyone. Even though I got the love collection which smells like strawberry shortcake heaven my husband used it! Just because its girly doesn't mean your men can't get pampered too!

How important is a really great time piece? My hubby is all about a good watch! We live in Oregon so when I came across Jord wooden watches I knew this would be right up our alley! My husband Micah works as a lift mechanic at our local ski area so he doesn't get dressed up much. Literally every weekend since he's got his watch, he's worn it! He's in love! He doesn't even wear his wedding ring this much! Usually he wears it on a necklace, can't chance getting it caught in any machinery! Jord, you've definitely won in his book! We went out to the local sledding hill in our home town and Micah wore his watch. There were at least three other parents there that asked where his watch was from! Not only is it eye catching its comfortable. Micah ended up wearing his watch all the way up to work because he forgot it was on his wrist! This watch is the perfect gift for dads and moms all year long! I'm totally a rustic style lady myself, my favorite thing about this watch is you can dress it and down. Micah wears Pendleton's a lot which are a nicer thick wool button up and his watch goes perfect with every one he has! They have a bunch of different color combos for all styles so your guaranteed to find something you'll love!
I've linked the watch Micah got here if you like this style! Go take a look and then enter our giveaway!!
