Pay it Forward.

I have been blessed to be part of the Stonyfield Team. Throughout the years they’ve proven time after time to be one of the greatest companies I have worked for, thus far. This Holiday season Stonyfield gave me a $50 dollar gift certificate to “Pay it Forward”. Are they not super awesome.

My brother recently became a staff volunteer for the Montgomery County Department of Human Services and Family Services, Inc. That provides accessible services to at-risk children and their families to improve adjustment to and performance in school, home, and community. Prevention and early intervention services include health, mental health, social services and educational support. The majority of the kids are Spanish speakers and so he’s been helping with translating for the parents during Parent-Teacher Conferences. Which staff and parents really appreciate. 

 

So, my brother and I came together and purchased clothes for these kids, we used the entire $50 plus then some. I was so happy that we could be a blessing to a few kids. The feeling you get inside your heart and soul to know you have done something good. Feels amazing. I encourage you to “Pay it forward” whenever you get a chance. I promise you will not only will you be a blessing to that other person but you will feel great about it. God will bless you ten times more. Huge, Thank You to Stonyfield for having such a big heart and giving back to the community through us Bloggers.

Tommee Tippee comfi neck bib. #tommeemommee

Holiday’s are right around the corner. I have a few of my friends and family members that are currently pregnant or already had their bundle of joy. Finding the perfect gifts are always a must for me. I have my munchkins and through it all, I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t. Not saying what worked for me will work for others, but they are items that I absolutely love. 

One of those items is the Tommee Tippee comfi bibs. The first thing that will stand out to you will be the softness of the material. They are made from two layers of cotton/polyester terry cloth (which is amazing because terry cloth is very absorbent). What makes this bib unique is that they had to study how babies drink/ eat and just know how to create a practical bib. The spongy ring along the neck of the bib has extra padding to catch any drool or spills while drinking or eating.

This spongy ring prevents that yummy (just kidding) smell under your babies neck as well as rashes. This bib is so practical and amazing. I absolutly love it and purchased a set for my cousin and my best friend.

Holiday Proposals.

Sometimes, I wished I had an amazing romantic story to tell about how my husband proposed to me. However, I don’t. We were high school sweethearts, soon after we graduated he decided to join the Navy. He went off to bootcamp for two months, while at A school. (Which is his rate school that he attends after graduating bootcamp.) We talked about getting married. I was only seventeen, at the time. I told him we would need to get my parents on board, because I wanted to leave the house with their blessings. We got my parents blessings, but he never really proposed to me. We talked about it, and just did it. We had close family join us at church and a small reception for our family and friends.

Holiday season is my favorite time of the year. I think that Marriage Proposals are so amazing around this time of the year. There are so many different ways to go about it. Here are a few of my favorite, as I’m sure they would be to others.

Advent Calendar – Be creative and check out pinterest to grab some ideas. You can use cardboard jewelry boxes, paper bags, magnetic tin, reusable fabric baggies. Add a little something to each day, that your spouse will like, or appreciate. Choose the day you want to propose (you can leave the wedding ring in there… or you can even make a little riddle for him/her. To find it and have something special waiting for them)

*Before you present this calendar to your future spouse, make sure you let them know; to open each box, bag, ect. Once you are home, that way when the big day comes they won’t suspect anything* 

Special Ornament – you can go to Michael’s craft store and buy a clear ornament. You can add sentimental items inside, glitter, special note with either the ring inside or a note that saids ” will you marry me? ” and you then show them the ring and say your speech. You can present this ornament possibly while decorating your christmas tree. 

New Years – while the countdown is going on.. last few seconds till clock hits midnight.. you propose to that special someone, and follow it with a New Years kiss. Ta Da!!! 

Hope these are helpful and if and when you propose to that special someone and use these, be sure to share your story with me. I’d love to read it.
