PACT Organic clothing

As a busy mama to two kiddos I’m always running around town. Last week I got to try my PACT Organic Clothing bundle and I couldn’t be more excited to tell you all about it.

I put my leggings, camisole and hoodie to the test. I went from taking my daughter to school on a chilly morning,    to a warmer Mommy and Me with my son,

to ballet with both kiddos,

and finally at home with the family.

After 10 hours of wearing the same outfit my PACT Organic clothes were still comfortable, soft and didn’t stretch out. I call that a win-win!

The hoodie was my favorite piece. The stripes were flattering, the hood was not to constricting and it had a thumb hook. Love it!

Not only does PACT Organic make super soft cotton clothing that is better for people, but it’s also better for our planet. PACT Organic uses organic farming practices that don’t pollute the soil or water while partnering with organizations that protect the well-being of the people who make the clothes.

Did you know?

Organic cotton uses 71% less water and 62% less energy than conventional cotton. Growing organic cotton keeps farmers and their families safe because they are not exposed to toxic chemicals.

Thomas’ Bagels

Did you know there is a Limited Edition Pizza Flavored Thomas’ Bagel in town? Me either!

So when Thomas’ Bagels company asked me to try them with a few of my friends, I knew inviting my neighborhood for a little early Valentine’s Day celebration would help spread the news. To go with our Valentine’s Day theme, I cut the tops off of each bagel to look like hearts.The kiddos arrived and started creating their pizzas.While we waited for the pizzas to bake, we made Valentine’s Day cards for hospitalized kids.

You can read more about it here.

I took this quick picture before all the hungry kiddos grabbed their pizza. They kinda, sorta look like hearts. We all thought the pizzas turned out so so good! Real pizza seasonings are baked right into the bagel kicked it up a notch. Now there’s a no muss, no fuss way to get your fix, anytime, anywhere, with their Limited Edition Pizza Bagels. Just top your heart’s content. But hurry – they’re only available for a limited time.

After our pizza party we hung out and played in the neighborhood. We ended the night with our Thomas’ Bagels swag bags.

So thankful for our little driveway. You guys are so much fun!

Farm Rich

Happy Super Bowl day!!

I don’t know much about football, but I love hanging out with friends AND eating. So when I get invited to Super Bowl party (or any party), I’m there!

To prep for the big day I got to test a few Farm Rich snacks.Our favorite Farm Rich Snack was the Mozzarella Bites.

Mozzarella Bites are crafted with authentic pizza crust and 100% real mozzarella cheese. Plus, they’re a great source of calcium and protein, and are microwaveable.

These soft little pillow cheese bites were amazing! My kiddos loved it too!

To kick it up a notch I made this cheesy snack even cheesier with a dip to go with it.All you need is a jar of your favorite pasta sauce and 1/2 a block of cream cheese. Microwave for 2 minutes and stir.Mmmm cheesy goodness!

Are you a Patriots fan or a Falcons fan?

Whatever team you are on I hope you enjoy the game and the all the snacks.Disclosure: This post was written as part of my participation in the BzzAgent program.

Cal Water H2O Challenge

A couple years ago I made the trip with my mom and aunt to see the Hoover Dam. 

It was beautiful and massive!

Yet I couldn’t stop staring at the noticeable water line. It was well below normal. It was frightening!!!

Living in California we are always reminded that there is a drought.

At home we do our best to be water conscious.

We turn off the faucet while brushing our teeth, we have our shower heads set to low, and use reusable water bottles.

Join the Cal Water H2O Challenge and learn how to teach your kids about water conservation.

Cal Water H2O Challenge is a project-based, environmentally-focused competition for classrooms, grades 4-6. Designed in conjunction with NAAEE, the WestEd K-12 Alliance, and Cal Water, and aligned with the Common Core State Standards and complimentary to the Next Generation Science Standards, Cal Water H2O Challenge offers a unique opportunity for upper elementary teachers to facilitate their students’ learning of standards-based content, while developing the core understanding of environmental principles necessary to becoming science-literate citizens.

a2 Milk

Do you or your kiddos suffer from dairy sensitivity? Do you wish you could just enjoy milk with all your favorite pairings?

Well a2 Milk may be the answer to all your milk quandaries. a2 Milk Brand produces a naturally occurring cows’ milk that does not undergo any technological process or genetic engineering. Instead, The a2 Milk Company selects cows that naturally only produce the A2 Protein instead of both the A2 and A1 Proteins found in most dairy milk. Independent studies have concluded that those who are sensitive to regular milk may actually be reacting to the A1 Protein in milk instead of the commonly known culprit, lactose. Dr. Corran McLachlan, founder of The a2 Milk Company, further discovered that many of these individuals were able to enjoy milk that is only pure A2 Protein, and no A1 Protein with only A2 Protein present. So if you’d like to come back to the pleasure and goodness of real and natural milk, A2 Milk offers you a healthy option available in fat free, low fat, reduced fat 2%, and whole milk. So get your favorite dunking snack ready as you rediscover the joys of milk!

Last weekend I attended a holiday potluck party with my mom friends. I set up my hot cocoa bar and poured a2 milk inside.

Normally I wouldn’t bring an item that is mostly milk to a party. There is nothing worse then having tummy rumbles while you are at a party. However I explained to all the guests the difference between regular milk and a2 milk. Those who experience negative side effects from consuming regular milk may actually have sensitivities to the A1 Protein in the milk. Then we all started to discuss how we know someone who is lactose intolerant and would benefit from a2 milk. There is nothing better then hanging out with your mommy friends around a fire drinking hot cocoa.
