As a mother it’s important to me that I raise strong, confident children. So when Dove Hair asked Lilly and me to participate in the #LoveYourHair campaign, I jumped at the chance! I love the brand and what they’re doing to empower females.





Dove Hair found that 8 in 10 women feel pressure to wear their hair a certain way. For many, these pressures began at an early age. Dove Hair believes a positive role model can greatly impact a girl’s confidence. I want Lilly to know that her hair is unique and beautiful… just like she is!




So I remind her everyday :)





Lilly loves to wear her hair different ways – one braid, two braids, pig tails, pony tail… But her favorite way is to wear it down (I think she gets that from me).

Shoe Carnival provided me with product and compensation for this post.

The opinions I have shared about the products are my own. 


We are in the thick of holiday season over here and our schedules are full, in the best kind of way. Lilly and Fletcher’s favorite afternoon activity involves riding through the neighborhood belting out holiday songs and pointing out festive decorations. Such activity requires comfortable (and cool!) sneakers :) So we partnered up with Shoe Carnival for a holiday style remix.




Just call us the Converse Family (even Josh has a pair!). It’s what we each picked out when we visited our local Shoe Carnival! They’re the perfect sneaker for every day activities, plus they’re just a classic. Perfect for an updated casual holiday look.

Gift cards are a great gift for the holidays, and this year I’ve partnered with a long time family favorite, Home Depot, to show an easy way to make your Home Depot Gift Cards feel more personal! My kids love to do crafts, so I enlisted their help putting together Home Depot’s unfinished picture frame kits.




The kits are simple enough for the kids to confidently build (with adult assistance)! All you need is a small hammer. I also picked up some sharpie makers for the kids to use to decorate them.




You just place the 4 pieces together like the picture on the instructions shows you…




And then nail each side in place with the provided nails – there are already pre-drilled holes so this is really simple and clear.





They were so proud!




The next morning Lilly and Fletcher decorated their frames using the sharpie markers I mentioned earlier. They got to choose exactly how they wanted to design them.

Home Depot’s holiday gift card selection is full of fun options this year. They each chose one gift card to place inside the picture frame. I did trim down the cards so that they would fit inside the frames.

This is such an easy way to make your Home Depot gift cards feel a little more personal while at the same time providing a fun holiday craft for your kids! I have a feeling this will be our new tradition.
