new diaper bag praise

This post is sponsored by the JJ Cole brand but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

We had been holding out for the perfect diaper bag since I found out I was pregnant with Adler-- an embarrassingly long time. We had kept a lot of baby items from when Logan was little but there were a few things we knew we would want/need for baby number two. 

A diaper bag was one of them. 

I did have my diaper bag that I used with Logan as we continued to use it as a travel bag in the car and while adventuring around town, but that was begging to look and feel old. It was a perfect bag, but we had wanted something different. He wanted function and I wanted style, It seemed as if the diaper bag fairies had known this and soon lead JJ Cole into our lives.  

From the second I opened the box, I knew it was worth waiting for. It such a great quality and the colors couldn't be better. This style is my favorite choice but JJ Cole offers so many other options in style and color, it is very difficult to choose.

My favorite feature its the size and the many compartments. I am an over-packer when it comes to the kids especially. Sometimes overpacking can be very disorganized, but this bag made it easy to fill it with all the things we want and stay organized. 

^  Here is a glimpse of the many things I pulled out of the bag.

 Another feature I feel like I have to mention is the stroller attachment. Look how great it attaches to our stroller. We have another stroller too, and it attaches perfectly to that one too. It makes taking this bag along all the easier. It is so convenient having whatever we may need from the bag right there handy. Our stroller basket is nice and big but once the seat is reclined, it's almost impossible to get to anything out of the bottom, so this option solved a lot of our problems. 

We have so far taken this bag everywhere we've gone, 
and I think Scott may be just as excited to use it as I am. 
It's stylish but not too feminine for the guys. 

 Big sister even likes carrying it around. She has already once, emptied it and out to fill with her baby doll stuff So I think it's safe to say that it is little mama approved too. 

And I may or may not enjoy filling it with my mama items too, because well, my days of purse carrying are just not happening right now with a little babes.

So if you are holding out like us, or just need to refresh what your using now, JJ Cole is the way to go! Definitely worth checking out, if nothing else. Let me know if you do happen to get one. I'd love to see what you picked.

simple afternoons with goldfish

This post is sponsored by the Goldfish brand but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

What's better than food you can eat with your hands? Food you can play with while you eat it with your hands! Goldfish crackers have proven time and time again to be the perfect choice. They're the perfect size, they don't get your hands messy, and they taste delicious. AND... Goldfish crackers are always baked with real cheese and have no artificial flavors or preservatives. I’m so thankful for a snack like Goldfish crackers that I can feel good about serving to the kids-- and in return they feel good about eating too. 

It's not often that I let her take snacks out of the kitchen, but Goldfish crackers are one of the very few snacks that she will actually eat, and not spill or make a mess of. 

This week at snack time I pulled out the Goldfish and spilled some. This opened the door to a great deal of creativity. This girl spent so much time rearranging her little fish snacks over and over. Our favorite was the peace sign. Everyone can spread a little more peace.

With the arrival of Spring, came the arrival of Track & Field, Softball, and Diversity Club, on top of the Dance and Religion classes we are already in the midst of. Needless to say, our days are pretty busy. Everyday there is something and somewhere we need to be, with the exception of Monday. Ahh, Monday! So on Monday, we chill. Lots of simple, unstructured, shoe-less, cuddly chill time with my little babes. 

Of course when I tried to get some photos, she turned on her sillies, and everything became a big ol' joke.

What's your week like? Have you too overextended yourself?
How do you deal?
I'm thinking  hoping this wont be an every Spring thing for us.

We added a video of a typical after school afternoon of creating and snacking, one of Logan's very favorite things.
