I am taking the FiberChoice 30-Day Get Picky Challenge!

**This is a sponsored post with Fiber Choice. All my opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.*

DSC 06141 I am taking the FiberChoice 30 Day Get Picky Challenge!After I had my first baby, Hayley, I was pleasantly surprised that the weight came off pretty quickly. Nine months on, nine months off and I was back into my favorite jeans. Then I had Zane, and the pounds seemed to stick around a little longer, I had thought that chasing a toddler while nursing a newborn would have made the weight fall off me, but I was a couple of years older and apparently my metabolism was too. So after just giving birth to my third baby, I am under no disillusionment that this time it will be easy to get back in shape. I did eventually get back into those jeans after Zane, but I had to work for it! It was perfect timing that Fiber Choice® asked me to take part in their 30-Day Get Picky Challenge with one of their five formulas; Fiber Choice® chewable tablets; Fiber Choice® Fruity Bites; Fiber Choice® Weight Management; Fiber Choice® Plus Calcium and Fiber Choice® Plus Antioxidants. Guess which one I chose after just giving birth? That’s right, Fiber One Natural Fiber Weight Management! I am so excited to get started!

Fiber One Natural Fiber Weight Management can help to manage cravings when I add it to part of my healthy exercise and diet. Mind you, as a new mother I am not doing boot camp or “dieting”, I am just trying to eat healthfully, move a little, and get all the nutrients I need for me and baby, while not going overboard. I know that getting the right amount of fiber is important to digestive health. I’m happy to try out the Fiber One Natural Fiber Weight Management supplement because I know I don’t get enough fiber in my diet and have a hard time separating baked goods (yum) from good for my diet fiber if you know what I mean. The recommended amount of daily fiber we should be eating is about 25 to 30 grams, and most Americans only get half of that in their diets each day.The Fiber Choice products contain 100% soluble fiber, which helps to support overall regularity (ahem, new moms, you know this can be an issue) and health by supporting the immune system and digestive tract. The Fiber One Natural Fiber Weight Management product also tastes great, which helps!

Listen, I know it is still early after having the baby, and that I should not feel pressure to loose the weight right away. Trust me, a healthy baby and safe delivery are the most important outcomes to me right now. That said I am excited to have the opportunity to try out the Fiber One Natural Fiber Weight Management product and see if it actually helps to get me back into those jeans. At least headed in the right direction. I’ll let you know!

The Febreze #Noseblind Test and a $60 AmEx Gift Card Giveaway!

This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

In my house these days, it is all about Baby Taylor. She is three weeks old today and while she is an awesome baby, my house is definitely smelling like “baby” these days. If you have kids, you know what I mean- A + D ointment, wipes, and smelly diaper odors that penetrate the whole house. Now here is the problem: While I am used to it and probably would not be able to identify the odors, when my guests come over they definitely could smell the unpleasant odors that have gone around my house. If you are not familiar with this sensation where the homeowner is completely oblivious to smells but your guests are very keen to the offensive smells, this phenomena is called Noseblindness.DSC 0614 The Febreze #Noseblind Test and a $60 AmEx Gift Card Giveaway!

Noseblindness is a nasal condition where you become accustomed to the odors around you over time, which are created by the odor cycle. For us, we have become accustomed to all the dirty diapers and baby smells, that we can’t really smell it anymore. You know what I mean?! However, when our friends come over, this is by far the first thing they smell and it could be terrible to their noses.

Thank goodness, I was asked by Febreze to invite friends over and do the #NoseBlind test. The way this worked was I invited girlfriends over to watch the Bachelorette a week back and brewed up some yummy popcorn. Once they arrived, we all took an initial survey asking what smells they perceived when they entered. I just cooked so I was hoping they smelled the yummy foods. Unfortunately they smelled the poopy diapers while I smelled the yummy foods. FAIL..FAIL!!  Then we took another survey after we made some popcorn and asked what smells came up after making it. Thankfully, the smells of the popcorn were actually noted in this survey now!  However, the baby smells were still noted by some.DSC 0618 1024x682 The Febreze #Noseblind Test and a $60 AmEx Gift Card Giveaway!

DSC 0622 1024x682 The Febreze #Noseblind Test and a $60 AmEx Gift Card Giveaway!

After about an hour, I used the Febreze products sent to us to clean the house and especially the area of the room where we were watching the Bachelorette. I went around spraying the fabrics with Febreze Meadows and Rain spray and the Febreze Air Effects Rainbow and Rain. I also set up the Febreze candle in the room and voila, in no time at all, the house smelled absolutely beautiful! Goodbye were the days of the smelly diapers and popcorn! Hello were the days of the beautiful Meadows and Rain Smells from the Febreze!

Febreze is definitely the simple solution for noseblindness. Febreze contains a molecule known as Cylodextrin that traps and eliminates the bad odors. Febreze’s patented technology eliminates odor and leaves behind a pleasant smell. It will give you the confidence to always be ready for guests on a moment’s notice, or with no notice at all! I am a HUGE Febreze fan and I recommend if you want your house smelling wonderful, give Febreze a try today! Be sure to learn more by visiting the Febreze Twitter and Facebook Page.

In a few short weeks, back to school is going to be upon us. Because I am now the mom of a newborn again, I need to make sure I am organized enough when Zane and Hayley go back to school late August.

This code is going to become very useful when I do my back to school shopping.

Part 2: Some more “Mom-Cation” moments-Helping Tackle the Summer Messes with Merry Maids! #momcation

*This is a sponsored post with Merry Maids. All my opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.*

DSC 0604 1024x682 Part 2: Some more “Mom Cation” moments Helping Tackle the Summer Messes with Merry Maids! #momcation

I am miraculously managing to keep my Zen amongst the summer chaos of my first summer as a mom to three. How you ask? It’s my “Mom-Cation” moments secret weapon. The tips I’ve learned from the Merry Maids Facebook page that have saved me time and again. My favorite I think are the cleaning tips for popsicle drips and prevention because they are a daily treat for my kids in the summer. Of course I serve them only the real fruit pops that are not just made from sugar-water and have a tiny bit of nutritional value. They still drip as much as the other ones though, and stain the same as well.

Merry Maids home cleaning expert Debra Johnson shared a great tip to prevent the drips in the first place and it works like a charm. We make popsicle holders to catch the melty mess before it can wreak havoc on our house or clothes. The trick is to just take a cupcake wrapper and cut a slit in the bottom to fit the popsicle stick through, the kids even like making these themselves, and we use colorful or patterned cupcake wrappers to make them look fun. It keeps hands sticky free as well.

Of course there are plenty of times, especially now with a newborn, that they serve themselves without time for my drip prevention intervention. These are the times I find little trails of drips through the first floor, sticky handprints on the counters and chairs, and melty puddles on the couch of bright red raspberry flavored popsicle. These are the times that could push a mom of three over the edge. But they don’t. Merry Maids has also taught me the trick to cleaning up theses inevitable messes as well. Dish liquid works beautifully. Just treat the stain with dish liquid and put a white towel over it. Then run a hot iron over the area, which helps to transfer most of the stain on to the towel. I would have never thought to try this treatment, but it works magic on carpets, upholstery, and clothes. Knowing that I’m able to tackle most messes as they happen really takes the stress out of the messy fun of summertime.

DSC 0602 1024x682 Part 2: Some more “Mom Cation” moments Helping Tackle the Summer Messes with Merry Maids! #momcationIf you are ready for a “Mom-Cation” of your own, I recommend liking the Merry Maids Facebook page to get great cleaning tips like these and take the stress out of summer at home with kids.
