I'm so curious. How often do people actually do their laundry? I tend to do mine once every week or every 2 weeks. Some of my friends do laundry EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Why?
If you choose to do laundry every single day, or weekly or monthly, I'd love to send out some cool tips to at least avoid the chemical concoctions that we now know as laundry detergent and fabric softeners.

Colleen, on the concept of work-life balance:
"I started to become disenchanted with the word "BALANCE" a few years ago. . . I was sick of hearing it coming out of my OWN mouth whenever anyone asked "How do you manage to be married to a crazy farmer, coral 4 wild kids and run an energy bar company?! To which I'd always reply. . "well, ya know. . . it's all about balance."

Back to school time! Tell us, which parent are you?
It's the most wonderful time of the year! OR What am I going to do without my babies?!
Either way, it is time to prepare for back to school. Get your supply list ready and let's do some shopping!
We are starting to see a shift in the world now, with banning plastic straws and using reusable water receptacles - and how wonderful is that to watch! It's time we exert a solid effort into taking care of our planet, water ways and wildlife. After all, we want to leave earth in a healthy shape for our children's generations and for many more to come, right?

Summer lovers rejoice! August is by far the best summer month, in my opinion. The warmest weather has arrived, the trees, plants and veggies are producing bountiful harvests (mmm... fresh garden veggies) and most of us get a break from children's activities! It's the perfect month to relax and spend time with friends and family, or at the lake or camping, before the craziness of back to school.
Here are my tips for keeping cool in this beautiful August heat!

Do you have a "Pinterest Mom" in your life? She's adorable, put together and super organized? Oh, wouldn't it be nice to have your life together like that - everything prepared for your kids on an outing, easily able to pop things out of your bag, knowing exactly where it is, never ending flow of snacks to avoid hangry meltdowns?
Well, friends, first of all, you're perfect just the way you are. Don't compare yourself to your lovely Pinterest Mom friend - her bedroom is probably a huge mess anyway (haha!!). You're doing a great job!!

Don't make these baby registry mistakes!
The truth is, when we are expecting our first babes, we can prepare as much as we can, read all the books and do all the research but nothing truly prepares you for YOUR baby. And that's the fun part of parenting! (I use the word 'fun' loosely, haha)
