Why I Love the Symphony™ LX All-In-One Car Seat

I participated in this sponsored campaign on behalf of One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own.

Is it just me or are car seats one of the hardest things to decide on when building your registry or upgrading your toddler’s ride?  So many different shapes, sizes, bells and whistles, it can get confusing on what you really need.  I wish I had known about the Evenflo Symphony™ LX All-In-One with SureSafe when I was a brand new mom-to-be.

The Symphony™ LX All-In-One, like the name suggests, is an all-in-one car seat fitting children from 5 to 110lbs—it’s the only car seat you’ll ever need! It now comes with a brand new SureSafe® System, which increases proper installation by 2x. That’s huge when you consider that 70% of car seats are incorrectly installed. The LATCH guides act like a tunnel, making the vehicle lower anchor bars clearly visible at all times, so no more searching to connect your seat.  The Quick Connector™ LATCH easily attaches and detaches the seat from the vehicle with one hand for easy transition between vehicles.

Mom’s Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies just like Mom used to make #recipe #cookies

My mom was always baking cookies- whether as an after school treat for me or to send in my Dad’s lunch.  I’m pretty sure my Dad’s love language is frozen M&M cookies; and I can’t tell you how many days I came home to fresh, hot from the oven chocolate chip cookies.  I think it’s funny that both my husband and my first born prefer savory to sweet, and neither of them are that impressed to come home to warm cookies.

Fully Loaded Gluten-Free Granola Bars

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Udi’s® Gluten Free. As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.


Fully Loaded Granola Bars: Gluten-Free with steel cut oats, flax, chia

A few weeks ago I was given the opportunity to learn more about ancient grains with Udi’s® Gluten Free.  We don’t live a Gluten-Free lifestyle (unless you count those 6 weeks my husband tried to live “Paleo”), but while none of us have an intolerance or serious sensitivity to it, we do make efforts to limit our consumption as part of a varied diet.  I used to survive solely on pasta; but after my commitment to getting healthy a few months ago, I’ve drastically reduced my carb and gluten intake.  I noticed that I started to feel “lighter” when I wasn’t eating a gluten heavy diet.

I was really eager to learn about the health benefits of ancient grains like chia, flax, quinoa, millet, oats and amaranth.  These foods not only pack a serious health punch, but they also help you stay full and satisfied since they’re loaded with fiber, protein, iron and more.  Continue reading
