Staying healthy during the summer time is easier said than done... with so many enticing sugary foods like ice cream and slushies and the heat defeating any notion of working out, it's easy to get off track with a diet and exercise plan. It's especially easy when your 8 months pregnant, so trust me, I understand!Whether your a fitness fanatic or a couch surfer, today I want to share 5 simple tips to help you stay healthy this summer.
Stay fit and healthy this summer, even when it's WAY too hot! Here's 5 tips and a coupon code for your next Doctors visit! #MomsLoveAmwell

1. Drink Water - Staying hydrated helps prevent illness, keeps your body healthy, helps maintain your weight, and fuels your daily activities. Since we're mostly composed of water and it's easy to get dehydrated in the heat, it's obvious why this is so important!

Keep Your Babe Healthy with a TemporalScanner Thermometer

Thanks to EXERGEN for sending over this super convenient thermometer and making my adjustment into mom life a little easier,
regardless all opinions expressed below are my own.

Take your babies temperature easily with this awesome TemporalScanner thermometer! #BabyShowerGiftGuide


No one plans for their little one to get sick, it's just not something any expectant or new parent wants to even think about... but it happens. I hope we never have to deal with a sick child, but there's a good possibility that she may some day get a cold and while I'm not looking forward to that day, I want to be prepared if (or when) it happens. I'm being rational though and I'm not going overboard and stocking our medicine cabinet full of infant meds, but I am going to make sure I know if my little babe has a bug immeadiately with the help of our fancy new TemporalScanner thermometer from EXERGEN.

Take your babies temperature easily with this awesome TemporalScanner thermometer! #BabyShowerGiftGuide

What exactly is a TemporalScanner thermometer? It's a super accurate, non-invasive way to gauge my little darling's health, all from the comfort of our couch. There's not much I know about being a parent yet, but one thing I do know is that I want to keep my girl as comfortable as possible, especially if she isn't feeling well. I'm so glad to say that taking her temperature is just one less thing I have to worry about once she arrives and I think most expectant (or new) parents want that comfort as well!

Take your babies temperature easily with this awesome TemporalScanner thermometer! #BabyShowerGiftGuide

One great thing about the thermometer is that if the bug spreads, I can use it to find out hubby's temperature and my own just as easily as I can find hers. It's a family friendly device and won't make any of us feel uncomfortable. With patented software and a quick swipe across the forehead, we can all accurately find out if we are feverish or not in just seconds flat!

Want to get your hands on one of these fancy new thermometers for your little one or maybe you want to invest in a worthwhile Baby Shower Gift that a mama-to-be can really get some use out of? The TemporalScanner thermometer is a great option for all mamas and can be found at several big box retailers! Get more information about the thermometer here!

Beat the Heat with The Target Clean Care Box!




Don't let the heat hold you back this summer! Find out how you can beat the heat with The Target Clean Care Box! #CottonelleCleanCareBox #Target

This summer has been a little different than any other I've ever experienced, the main reason being that I'm super pregnant and dealing with all the "fun" symptoms that accompany pregnancy. While feeling little Delainey kick and nesting have been two of the positive symptoms as of late, I'll be real and tell you that being 30lbs heavier than my previous weight and dealing with the all of the additional hormones coursing through my body has been interesting.

If you're also pregnant, dreading the heat every single day, or just simply not a big fan of summertime, the Target Clean Care Box is the answer! The contents of these boxes include everything a woman needs to beat the heat and most of it fits right into your handy-dandy little purse... Well, for some of us it all fits in a purse but I've always been one to overstuff my handbag so when I saw all the goodies in this box I knew where most of it was heading. If you're a bit like myself (or Mary Poppins, for that matter), you'll want to keep all of this in your bag just in case it's needed. If not, I still suggest you stock up on some of these heat-combating products while they are on sale at Target!

We'll start with a product I can't get enough of, the NEW Kleenex® Facial Cleansing Wipes! These little beauties combine multi-layered, textured fabric, and a gentle cleanser infused with a pro-vitamin complex to give the natural radiance of a freshly washed clean in just 1 step - the perfect way to keep your face looking fresh even on the most uncomfortably hot day! Alcohol Free, Pre-moistened, Dermatologist Tested, and found in Assorted Patterns, you can rest assured that your skin will look radiant no matter where you spend your days! I love packing these in my beach bag to ensure I look absolutely radiant, no matter what the plans are afterward! More Kleenex Facial Cleansing products are available here.

If you're expecting or around anyone who is, I suggest you always keep a pack of Kleenex® Facial Tissue in your bag! As emotional as pregnant women can get, it's easy to burst into tears at any moment. While I'm guilty of this lately, I like to make sure I bring along a pack of tissues in case one of my other mama friends happens to be feeling equally as emotional. One soft tissue is all it takes to show you care. With a variety of designs and a good amount of tissues packed into a tiny little pack, it's easy to fit these beauties in my bag no matter the occasion.

Your Dog Deserves a Dream Dog Park! #FriendsofBeneful

Thanks to Beneful for sponsoring today's discussion and helping several doggies and communities by building awesome dog parks! #FriendsofBeneful #DreamDogPark

Every pup should have a dream dog park nearby their home. Find out how Beneful is making that dream a reality for many dogs and how you can score an awesome new park for your community... #DreamDogPark #FriendsofBeneful

My dogs are my little best friends, I love spoiling them and I'll be honest, being able to take them places is always a treat (for me and them). While I wish they could tag along on my trips to Target to grab them Beneful or my little jaunts over to Tampa for stuff for Delainey, they can't always come with me. That's why it's special when we make the day all about them and take them everywhere with us, like we did yesterday.

We spent a good portion of the day at our favorite dog park, fine tuning their skills with the agility course and having a great time letting them run free-as-can-be through out the entire park. The best part, in my poodle's opinion anyways, was rolling around in the muddy shade in the corner of the park.

That's the thing about our dog park, it's full of stuff for doggies to do and it's just fun to wander around with your pooch too. I know other communities aren't lucky enough to have a dog park like ours so I wanted to let you know that Beneful is doing everything they can to help you get one like ours in your community.
