Mommy Review Monday: Garanimals Play Clothes

For years my kiddos wore mostly Children’s Place and Gymboree clothes. And they still wear a lot of it because we can occasionally get really good deals.

Wellness Wednesday: Working Out with 8fit

Another confession- I have motivational challenges getting up and working out. I can’t figure out why because after I work out, I always feel great for the rest of the day.
