Please send @DrTeals my way!

Life can be stressful for everyone, right? I know I am not the only one.  I am not even talking about BIG reasons to stress.  It can be anything from the stupid drivers out there... to those in school taking a test.  Yes, there are big and small issues out there, but we try to make the most out of it all.  One thing for me is to try and relax and take time for me when I can.  It can be a day at the spa, a trip to the grocery store alone or even a nice relaxing bath.  I had planned on making welcome to a new school year basket for Broxton's new teacher, but I know how people are about certain scents and I did not want to send in something she didn't like. Know what I did instead?  Made me a little care package and boy oh boy, I have been enjoying it!   FTC Compliant Review Policy:The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing.

Infusium23 keeps my hair healthy!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I cut my hair a bit ago... See photo below if you need a reminder.  You see, to me, hair is just that... hair.  I grow it out, cut it, donate and go on.  I am not one to style it and fix it up all the time.  Normally, it is just pulled back in a ponytail and that is it.  It is funny, one of my best friends always has to laugh at my hair, since it is pulled back all the time and I have tons of little fly away's around the front. (Oh, and don't forget the baby curls around my ears.)
Having admitted that I don't do much for style, I do take pride in my hair.  Whenever I go to finally get it cut, I am always complimented on how healthy my hair is.  Yes, I can brag on that, since to me it is a big deal!   Why am I telling you this?  Well, I want to tell you about what I actually do use on my hair.

Do you make #BackToSchool care packages?

Image
Most people are totally in back to school mode now.  Well, I guess most have already started, but as soon as I think everyone has started, someone posts a picture about how they are getting ready to go back.  While you hate to think of all the germs and what not that are out there, it is great to be prepared for all the other little "friends" your children will pick up during the average school day.

To get us all back to school ready, here are a few tips from our friends at Chloraseptic:

Two new books with beautiful illustrations

Image
Every night for part of Broxton's homework, he has to read for 20 minutes.
That is the problem. HE has to read.  He loves when I read to him, but for him to read, he isn't a fan. I don't know what to do, so we make the most out of it.  Know what he does like? He loves to read to his little sister. Know what else?  That right there makes my heart happy. Every - single- time!    I have two new books to share with you, but I would love it if you have any help to getting him to enjoy reading his 20 minutes.

We were just sent this book for review.  123 Dream by Kim Krans. I think it is beautiful and Savannah has grabbed it more than a handful of times and handed it to me.  As you can imagine, it is a counting book.  …

We went to our first #Endurocross event

Image
This past weekend we were able to go to an event we have never been to.  Let's just throw it out there, we had never even heard of it either.  It was ENDUROCROSS and it kicked off the racing season in Duluth, Georgia.  Well, from what I read online it was the kickoff, so don't quote me on that one!

I will tell you this..  It was crazy!  
We got there early, since I did not know how Atlanta traffic was going to be.  When we walked in, the had a bunch of the drivers out there sitting at a table signing autographs for the fans. I loved that, but we didn't get in line for that, we had to go get ready for the event.  
The thing started and I looked over at a friend that we had invited to go with us.  It was a bit bori…
