DaffaDoot

With the planning of baby #2 my Husband and I have been looking at all of the new amazing products available for babies and DaffaDoot has got a few amazing ones I’d love to share!

** SPECIFICS ABOUT OUR CRIB WEDGE:

DaffaDoot Baby Reflux Wedge Pillow. For babies who frequently suffer from reflux or dramatically spit-up. It’s a safe, sound baby reflux treatment which gently elevates the baby’s head and torso to help alleviate discomfort due to frequent stomach acid or frequent spitting up. Happy baby equals happy parents!

What makes the DaffaDoot Reflux Wedge Pillow special:
Many wedges are “foldable”, which means that it’s actually two smaller wedge pieces held together by a cover. In other words, it is split and can “gap” under baby. Foldable wedges are marketed as “convenient to store”… but this feature degrades its performance. It’s better to have a wedge which focuses on performance instead of focusing on easy storage. Foldable wedges, since they are in multiple pieces, are also more likely to shift around. Our wedge is a single, stable, correctly sized piece with a non-skid bottom and a hypoallergenic, waterproof casing. The zipper is at the back of the wedge (to keep it well away from baby) and our foam is the perfect firmness (not too soft, not too hard). It meets and exceeds federal safety regulations. These regulations dictate that the wedge must extend the entire width of the crib mattress (27”). Anything else is not snug enough.We are using an eco-friendly zippered bag to package our wedge. This can be used to store your wedge in later, or as a blanket bag today.

**SPECIFICS ABOUT OUR CAR SEAT PROTECTOR:

Traveling with kids requires so many things… the proper child car seats and booster seats, snacks to keep everyone happy, a little extra protection while we are potty training, toys to keep little ones occupied… And many of these things can turn the back seat into a war zone.

Introducing the DaffaDoot Car Seat Protector. It’s Impeccable Quality combined with Perfect Functionality. Make your ride a little easier by protecting your back seat against all of this wear and tear. Our high quality car seat protective pad liner will extend the life of your seats and protect from all the damage the edges of your child’s car seat or booster can cause.

Smoothie Bowls

I am constantly asked how I make smoothie bowls.. They’re easy, quick, simple and can be pretty, but it also took me awhile to figure out how people were making these beautiful creations at first. I like having the smoothie consistency along with chunks of fruits/veggies/nuts which is different from what you’d get in a standard smoothie obviously.. So it’s nice to change it up if you have a smoothie for breakfast everyday.

I like putting Purely Inspired protein powder or meal replacement in my smoothie mixture because it gives me the energy boost I need in a meal!

The smoothie bowl base is made with whichever fruit you want to use but with less water/milk you’d use in a standard smoothie so that it’s a little more thick/chunky. Then top with whatever you want! Super simple right?!

My favorite is a base of 3 super ripe bananas and meal replacement powder with almond milk! I like mine thick so my fruits can sit on top without sinking in 😉 These are by far my favorite breakfasts.. Try one for yourself and let me know if you do a delicious mixture I need to know about ❥

Colorado Renaissance Festival

An every year tradition in my family is to visit the Colorado Renaissance Festival. I remember going as a child and the fun memories have lasted over many years. My Children have such a blast – From seeing beautiful fairies to knights in full armor, they’ve got hundreds of things for children to see and do.

My beautiful Family

But they don’t skimp on pleasing the adults – They’ve got alcoholic beverages from beers, ciders and margaritas for only $4.50! As well as decently priced meals and snacks!

Now.. Not only do they have fun festival games but they’ve also got camel/llama rides, pirate shows, jousting and royalty parades! I don’t think I’ve ever seen my step-daughter light up as much as when she saw the princesses.. A look I’ve seen before on myself when I too was younger : ❥

Hudson loved the beautiful ladies in their fancy dresses (Such a flirt…) but I think his favorite moment was the camel rides.. He lit up like a Christmas tree : ❥

I highly recommend the Colorado Renaissance festival to anyone!! Families, Singles, Adults, ANYONE. You’ll have a blast from the PAST 😉

Sprouts Event – Plant Based

As a paleo eater I love all things whole foods – Fruits, Meats and Veggies which are just so important for our bodies! The paleo lifestyle is based on caveman eating – Only things you would have found in nature (Obviously nothing artificial or processed). However, I don’t eat nearly as much meat as my Husband does so plant based eating has always intrigued me! So I went to a Sprouts Event where Dietitian Suzanne Farrell explained the benefits, methods and products that plant based eaters use (and why!)

Screen Shot 2018-07-05 at 2.55.46 PMIt was so informative – I learned things I should be adding to my own diet to acquire certain vitamins/nutrients I may be lacking! Such as certain nuts (Almonds and Peanuts) that are amazing sources of protein, foods that provide Omega-3s if I’m not eating a ton of fish (Such as chia/flax seeds and spinach!) and so much more!Screen Shot 2018-07-05 at 2.55.23 PMThere were plant based products I never realized were paleo that were so tasty! (Like almond based hummus dip.. It’s SO good! Go to your local Sprouts and search around the hummus area – There are some great options for paleo snacking!)

They were handing out samples of their watermelon to people in the store.. What other grocery store does that?!

I love Sprouts for their deals, their fresh foods and their products’ ingredients but most of all their tie to their communities. They’re always wanting to educate, help and assist everyone who’s wanting to learn about healthier eating! I love Sprouts!

Antique Obsession

Just a quick share – Anyone love antiques?! Well my Father in Law does, so when we went looking for a truck for him here in Colorado we saw a few and I fell in LOVE with one…

It’s a 1968 International Harvester and it’s GORGEOUS.. My FIL ended up getting a red 1965 Ford but I kept thinking of the Harvester.. After constantly talking about it my FIL decided he wanted to BUY it for me!! So now introducing my newest love.. Harvey ❥

Fondue Fairytails at The Melting Pot

Y’all with girls are sure to understand – There is nothing more magical than princesses… My step-daughter LOVES all things Princess, even at 7 years old and I love it. It reminds me of a simpler time when I too still envisioned myself as a princess finding my prince charming 😉

20180624_123924

When I heard The Melting Pot in Louisville, CO had a Fondue Fairytails event I HAD to take my kids! My step daughter dressed up in a lovely Arielle dress, a tiara and brought a mini koala pet.. “Because every princess has a small pet in the movies..”

The boys dressed in their Sunday best and we made our way to their restaurant! It was SO adorable – It looked like an old mine.. Very Colorado-esque!

20180624_113230

Their staff was so welcoming and sweet and REALLY got into the Prince and Princess roles.. It was so genuine and fun for the kids. We were sat down and immediately greeted by one of the best waiters we’ve ever had – Kay! She was so sweet and REALLY got our kids excited about the foods and events!

20180624_121759

It was only $34.95 per adult and $19.95 per kid and it included a 4 course meal!! The kids were ecstatic when asked which kind of chocolate sauce they wanted in the end 😉

All of the meals were amazing and they were very accommodating to food allergies/preferences!

There was dancing, singing, games, hand outs of tiaras/crowns/wands and in the end they gave the kids autographed photos of Princess LaFonda (HAHAHA – She said it was like Napoleon Dynamite) and the King (Who told Brent he was going to the “Pit of despair, dilly dilly” LOL)

Their cocktails were divine

It was such an amazing experience for both my kids and us adults and we’ll absolutely be back SOON (The kids are already asking!)

20180624_123943

Thank you Melting Pot for creating such a fun event for our kiddos – We love restaurants like you!

Hudson stole his sissy’s tiara.. LOL 😉

They’ll have quite a few more Fondue Fairytale dates available at their Louisville location – July 8th and 22nd as well as August 5th and 19th. Check them out – You WON’T be disappointed!
