How to Find Your Joy this Christmas

logo ““Christmas is a race to see which gives out first – your money or your feet.” – Unknown… I’ve been sharing tips on how to slow down, savor the season, and truly enjoy the holidays – for a few weeks now. I hope you’ve been enjoying the daily tips on the Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery Facebook page as much as I have.

Holiday countdown calendar

If you haven’t checked it out yet, I totally recommend you take a minute to look at some of the fun daily ideas on their free Holiday Countdown calendar today, and start making a minute in your crazy-busy daily schedule to find some “me time” each day.

Buy yourself a gift day

This was one of my fave tips this past week – Buy yourself a gift day. Because honestly – as moms, don’t we usually end up getting shorted a bit when it comes to holiday gifts? We make lists, check sales, drive all over town, surf the web – all to make sure we buy amazing gifts for the whole family, our girlfriends, our partners family and friends, coworkers… And on an on. But – if you’re anything like me, your own pile of presents is kind of small. Which is ok – my holiday joy comes from watching others open the presents I so lovingly bought. But, hey – after all the work we do to try and create our version of a “perfect” Christmas, we deserve to buy ourselves a little gift too, right?

Kickasserole dish

So – this tip was perfect, since I’d just bought myself a new goodie. How fun is this “Kickasserole” dish? It’s even personalized with my name, so if you see the whole lid, it says, “Meagan’s Kickasserole.” Love-love this. I can’t wait to plan new dinner parties just to show this off at the table :)

Nature’s Sleep Cayman Gel Memory Foam Mattress – Does It Live Up to the Hype?

I’m a Nature’s Sleep Ambassador – #NSAmbassador – and receive complimentary memory foam products to test out and share with you guys…

As some of you may remember, as part of my big home makeover project we’ve been working on, I’ve been in the process of redoing our Master Bedroom over the past few months. We bought a new rug, built a closet, got a new TV and mount for the wall, painted the whole room, and even bought all new bedroom furniture too. And what’s a new bed without a new mattress, right? I mean, it doesn’t matter if the room looks good if the bed isn’t comfy. So I was absolutely THRILLED to find out that I was chosen to be a Nature’s Sleep Ambassador this year, so that I could try out some of the latest and greatest memory foam products, and have the most amazingly comfy bed ever. Remember when we first got it? It came all rolled up in a little box, which was crazy…

Now, after getting over the amazement of how such a big, fluffy, plush mattress could be squeezed up into such a small package – I have to admit it, I started feeling a little skeptical. I mean, it was seriously heaven when I laid down on it for the first time. Like, love-love-love. But I wondered… since it’s just foam, with no springs or anything inside, wouldn’t it just kind of squish down in places after awhile? Would it really hold up, and still form perfectly to me each time I laid down? Or would it flatten out after time?

Green Living Brings Rewards….

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Green Works. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating.

If you’ve been reading this blog for much time, you know about my mission to live cleaner and greener. It started when I found out that I was pregnant – I really wanted to do everything I could to ensure that my baby was growing happy and healthy. I started a Green Living board on Pinterest to help me collect ideas. I started a garden on our property, to grow more of our own fruits and veggies. We started reading more – product labels, websites, books. We’re not perfect – living clean in the society that we live in is a difficult task. But I do feel that we’re on a good path :)

Green cleaners really workPlay games to learn more about going green

Sometimes the whole thought of living more “green” or clean or organic – all of that can feel overwhelming. Hard to add into your already hectic life. Unrealistic. Which is why Green Works is running a super fun game right now to help encourage you to learn more about clean living – while giving you a chance to win! After you’ve done those steps, all you’ve gotta do is:

  • Step one: Follow @greenworksclean on Pinterest, create one pinboard and title it “GreenWorks Games.”
  • Step two: Play one of the Green Works Games – Word Search, Fill in the Blank, or Word Jumble to reveal special words.
  • Step three: Find an image to match the word and pin it to your Green Works Games board with the word it represents and the hashtag #greenworksgames. For example, if the word is “natural” you might pin a lemon, flower, or whatever represents natural to you – your pins should be reflective of your personality. Each picture needs to include the word you found and both the #greenworksgames and #sponsored hashtags. Please pin a minimum of five images to your board. Get more info here.

You can see my board here – Green Works Games.

Have fun and good luck!

There are Man-Eating Sharks in Every Ocean – But We Still Swim

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Allstate for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Motherhood is a challenge, to put it mildly… Whether you’re a first-timer figuring out how to adjust to life with a new baby, dealing with the toddler “it’s mine!!” phase, dealing with stubborn teens – or maybe doing all three at the same time! – being a mom can be exhausting. But, even with all of the craziness, we all still decided to become mothers anyway. Why? Because in between the chaos, it’s still a beautiful adventure…
