milk life

I love milk. I especially love milk with my chocolate cake, but that can't happen all the time so I try to get my milk in at other times. I also try to ensure my kids are getting milk and drinking up for their growing bodies! I like to start every day with the power of protein. Milk has 8 grams of high-quality protein, which could be the difference between just living life…and milking it! It also has 9 essential nutrients in each 8 ounce glass.

So, in order to milk life, I decided to complete the Milk Life Challenge with my family! Their have been such fun challenges each day and it has made me realize that milking life is really so fun and inspiring. I want to make the most out of each day that I have with my precious family and enjoy all our moments together.

One of the challenges we completed was the Be The Wheel Deal. It encouraged us to get out on some wheels...any wheels! We got our skateboards and bikes out and had a blast.

I personally did the Stretch Your Workout challenge by increasing my workout by 10 minutes. It made me realize that 10 minutes isn't that much! What a great way to challenge myself to do just a little bit more. You can convince yourself to do anything for 10 more minutes, yet it made me feel so much better those days because I had accomplished a challenge. Now that's milking life!

So, how are you going to Milk Life? Be sure to check out the Milk Life Challenge and accomplish something new! You might even win a prize!

skin care for baby {and a contest!}

Having a new baby is so exciting yet it can be so overwhelming at the same time! I’ve been celebrating with a friend who is about to have a baby soon and she was asking some of our friends about what things we wish we had known before we had our babies. We all swapped stories and shared with her in the joy and challenges a newborn will bring to her life. Getting advice from fellow moms is one of the best things for me when having my firstborn. There is so much to know and fellow moms can be such a great support to one another.

One thing that one of my friends talked to me about before I had my firstborn was skincare. Babies have such sensitive skin and you want to make sure you are taking proper care of it! I was grateful for the wisdom she shared with me because after having my son I recognized immediately that he had very sensitive skin that was prone to irritation with many products I tried. As he grew older we started seeing that he had eczema and we had to be careful about how we took care of his skin. There are so many gentle products out there that are made particularly for babies’ skin.

A great line of products is Mustela. Mustela knows that nothing is more precious than your baby, and so it is committed to safety first and foremost. Developed in collaboration with healthcare professionals, all of Mustela’s products are hypoallergenic, high-tolerance and do not contain any parabens, phenoxyethanol, phtalates or alcohol. Before being marketed, they are systematically put through the strictest possible tests to confirm that they are of the safest quality.

That is just what baby needs! I really love the Dermo-Cleansing and sunscreen

Sunscreen was a real irritant on my son’s skin but I knew that I needed to use it to protect his precious skin! I am so glad to have the Mustela brand because it was just perfect for my son.
Be sure to check out all of the Mustela products for purchase at and keep your little one’s skin healthy!

Be sure to check out a cool contest Mustela has going on for Mother's Day! Head on over to their Facebook page to enter their Mustela Moms Know Best contest for a chance to win a bundle of products (over a $100 value!). There are two winners every day, so be sure to enter daily with your tips, tricks and advice!
