Alva Baby Reusable Diapers

Hey there!  Hope everyone is having an AMAZING summer!  We are thoroughly enjoying the long days by going to the beach and park as much as possible.  Look at our wild garden!  Isn’t it great?!  We’ve had so many energizing, organic vegetables this year.

And how cute is Ivy’s new reusable diaper from Alva Baby?!  Obsessed!  I’ve had Alva Baby diapers since Ivy was a little baby and love their cute designs.  When Alva asked to collaborate on a post, it was a no-brainer for me!  Recommend a product I already use and love?  Yes please!  When I became a mama I became even MORE health and environmentally conscious than I already was.  Plus, think about all the money you save by not using disposable diapers!  I love having reusable diapers around.  Even if you use regular disposable diapers, its nice to have a few of these on hand so you don’t need to stress out about running to the store to get more diapers when you’re almost out.  It’s also great how their designs grow as your baby grows.  They have snaps all over so you can make them tiny for a newborn or bigger for a toddler!  We also use them for swimming covers!

Alva also sent me a wet bag to throw all the diapers into when I’m out and about and I can’t wait to give it a try!  If you’re interested in trying out Alva Baby diapers check out their website at:

Farm Wedding + Our Garden

Farm wedding

It’s officially wedding season!  We actually only have two weddings this summer (& already had one surprise wedding earlier this year in January for my sister!).  Last year we had SIX WEDDINGS to attend!  Craziness!  I love wedding so much.  They always make me nostalgic of my own wedding.  And I ALWAYS tear up when I see the bride coming down the aisle.  I’m such a softy!

Here are a few pics from the farm wedding we attended this past weekend + some pics from our backyard garden.  Lettuce and radishes are going to be harvested any day now!  Also, I just read in my town paper that they are considering allowing backyard chickens!  Ahhhh…. dream come true!  I hope it passes!

Happy Earth Day! + My Fav Eco Products!

In honor of Mother Earth, I am sharing my favorite eco-friendly products today!  With a few small changes, we can all be more green!  Happy Earth Day!

I love these glass straws and I use them almost daily!  They clean really easy as long as you rinse them right away, but even if you don’t, just soak them a little and use the cleaning brush that it comes with!  Super simple cleaning!  I love that they’re eco-friendly, and it makes my fruit enhanced waters and smoothies feel fancy!  Plus, they’re only $14 for a whole pack of them!

I love our stainless steel water bottles!  I even got one in a sippy cup for Ivy!  I’ve seen these at Target and my natural foods store that I shop at, but no where has them cheaper than on Amazon!  You could also get a fancy glass water bottle that come in lots of different colors.  Using reusable bottles saves our world from using so much plastic!  Go green!

I love my coffee!  Organic, fresh ground, and brewed every morning!  Garrett and I wake up at different times, so it’s really nice having a Keurig that brews single servings.  We use the refillable k-cups which gives us amazing, fresh coffee (as opposed to the pre-made single serving cups where the the coffee has been in there for who knows how long… eww!).  It also happens to be environmentally friendly, just think about all those little plastic cups that are going into the landfills EVERY DAY!  Switch to reusable cups!  It really doesn’t take that much more time and effort.  If you garden, throw the leftover coffee grounds into your outdoor plants!  It helps them grow!


Here are some more awesome green products that I want to buy and try out ASAP!  Less plastic waste!

Bee’s Wrap Sustainable Reusable Food Storage Assorted 3 Pack
Cloth Sandwich Bags – Set of 3
Eco Reusable Mesh Produce Bags

It’s all about doing what you can.  No one is perfect, but by taking  a few small steps you can help our planet and also save money in the long run!  If you don’t recycle, start recycling.  If you’re buying bottled waters, switch to an eco-friendly reusable one!  Enjoy your natural lawn (or make simple homemade solutions) instead of spraying harmful chemicals that destroy our planet and mess with our hormones.  It’s as simple as that, and the more you switch the more hooked you’ll be on reducing your carbon footprint and being green!  Happy Earth Day!  Thanks for reading!
