we've been MIA




Where have we been? Unfortunately this mommas blogging life was put on hold for a few months. I have missed posting dearly and hope to get back on track very soon. Hoping to get to know our readers again. Since we have been gone a few things have happened.

Keaton turned 4, my little man went from toddler to a big pre-schooler. It amazes me how time flies by when you have little ones, it feels like yesterday that i was holding my new born baby boy in my arms in the hospital and now hes off to school everyday of the week. Hes has decided he is a big man and wants to do bmx and jump ramps and now explains to me that he will get hurt sometimes but hes a kid and "that just happens sometimes".

Amelia is now 2 and finally talking. Taking after her big brother shes going non-stop. I cant believe how close she is to her big brother and how much she wants to be like him. Always up for a challenge Amelia is always on the go and trying to get into something new. 

As for this momma, i was working three jobs during the season. Having no time for myself. 

How has everyone been? We would love to hear from you

Diva Stuff Review


Diva Stuff
DivaStuff.com Offers all Natural, Organic Beauty Supplies including body care, hair care & Face care. Bringing you only the best for your body & skin. 

1mommy2monsters had the chance to review some of their products to share during our giveaway. 

Sugar Derm Facial Firm Single Use Scrubbies With Vitamin C-   Each scrubbie can be used several times just take care to keep it clean. each jar contains about 12-13 scrubbies. use by moistening under warm water and massaging over face and neck, then rinse thoroughly.
This oil free formula is a great addition to your acne fighting routine. It contains absolutely no oil and is made using natural floral and herbal waters.


Lime-Mango Moisture Rich Shampoo,Frosted Lime Cupcake Scent-
 Shampoo worthy of each and every goddess. This stuff is amazing. It is rich ,nourishing and smells like a bakery. Made with actual lime and mango powder as well as many other highly beneficial ingredients.



  Kettle Corn Flavored Lavish Lip Balm-
super moist, nourishing and do not have a waxy feel. Your lips will feel hydrated, soft and supple after using our lip balms. This one is kettle corn  flavored.

As a woman I know how hard it is to find the right products for your skin and hair type. Divastuff has made it easy to find those perfect products to help with your skin type and even your hair. Unfortunately even as an adult I deal with oily  (and sometimes acne prone) skin, Divastuff sent me the items pictured above meant just for that issue. The Sugar Derm Facial Firm Single Use Scrubbies With Vitamin C- and Oil Free Moisturizing Face Gel With Herbal Waters helped clear up my skin and left it oil free even during the day with make-up on my face. I have never felt better knowing that my skin goes without shine even in the heat here in Florida, I can walk around with confidence that my skin goes oil free.
When it comes to my hair I have found it very hard to find that perfect shampoo that actually helps with oil control, I have bought countless brands that have stated that it helps with oily hair, however they have all given me false hope. Divastuff has given me hope, as someone who listens to hair dressers about only washing my hair every 2 to 3 days for healthier hair I am now able to do just that. The Lime-Mango Moisture Rich Shampoo,Frosted Lime Cupcake Scent helps with oily hair types and smells amazing while in the shower. Have I mentioned that all these products are ALL NATURAL? What more is there to love?

Day 6: Conversational Cooking

Organized by Mom to Bed by 8 & Budget Earth

What is Conversational Cooking? There is no doubt that busy schedules and technology have cut into family time. With family members either lost in their handheld devices or racing to various events, so often the family dinner suffers. Conversational Cooking is designed to revamp dinner time and bring it back to family conversations. When Conversational Cooking author Anne Lawrence first brought a tabletop cooking device called a raclette home from the grocery store as an impulse purchase, there were no directions and no recipes, so she and her children began experimenting to see what they could cook on it. In Anne’s words, “That is when the magic began. The kids set down their iPods and gathered around the table and actually began cooking with me. Cooking on raclettes is so simple and easy that it makes cooking fun and accessible for nearly anyone and nearly any age. It was then that I realized that we weren’t just having dinner, we were having a conversation and we were having fun together! It was from those days of experimenting with that first raclette that Conversational Cooking got its start.” What is a Raclette? A raclette is a tabletop cooking device. Cooking with raclettes has been a cherished tradition in Europe for at least 700 years, and it is just now becoming a trend in the US. Raclettes are safe and easy to use. Like fondue, the raw ingredients for cooking with a raclette are placed in the center of the table and diners choose their food individually. With the raclette, though, you’re not just melting a pot of cheese or chocolate for communal dipping, you are actually cooking. Each guest can have their own raclette and cook a variety of dishes on them. Variety is part of the charm. What is included in the Conversational Cooking Cookbook? The cookbook features 22 family-approved recipes designed for the raclette. The cookbook is paired with either two or four Swiss Raclettes from Switzerland-based Nouvel, one of the world leaders in tabletop cooking items. Want to learn more?
