Trudeau Water Bottles #Giveaway {Ends 12/9} #PFHGG

Trudeau Water Bottles are great for drinking water on the go! Most of y'all know that my kids are really active in clubs, school activities, and sports teams. This means we are on the go I always pack snacks and water to take with us, so we have healthy options, and aren't tempted to stop by the convenience store and grab something from the cooler. We each have our preferences for what we are looking for in a water bottle. There are many choices available, but I've found that it encourages us all to drink more water and stay hydrated,…

Gold Rush Gold Planning Kit & Dirt #Giveaway {Ends 12/8} #PFHGG #GoldRush

We enjoy watching educational TV shows in our home, especially those that focus on a variety of career opportunities and those that show how people in other areas of the country (and world) live. I feel like it shows our kids that there are options and possibilities outside of those they may see locally or within our group of friends and family. We're not really trying to steer them into the careers we see on the various shows, but more wanting them to know just how many different possibilities exist so they broaden their horizons. It's important to us that…

The Elf Workshoppe:   When I was a child, we knew that Santa brought us our gifts from the North Pole, and that he had elves to help him prepare all of the toys for delivery.

Amwell Telemedicine Service

This is a sponsored post with Mums the Word Network and Amwell. All opinions are my own. Amwell is a site that offers Telemedicine Services. This type of service is somewhat new to most people that I know, but we are in the throes of Open Enrollment for our insurance coverage right now, and this IS a service that is included in our program for the upcoming year. While everyone's medical insurance is different, and I can only speak to my own, I think it's important to remind everyone to carefully review their plans, so they know what services are…
