Zevia-All Natural Soda

I love Soda! If it's in the house and cold it's gone within days. So, when I got the chance to try 6 different flavors: Zevia-Orange, Mountain Blast, Cola, Citrus, Black Cherry, and Dr. Zevia--I was super excited! Not only is it all-natural and made with stevia it also has zero calories.

I first tried the Black Cherry and at first taste I did not like it at all! It tasted like carbonated water with a funny after taste. I then tried the Cola and it was way better. It was comparable to Coke Zero without all the extras added to it. I spent my next few days sampling all six flavors. The Dr. Zevia is what I liked the most.

Zevia has 12 different flavors and I wish I was able to try them all. I was surprised how the taste of the three out of the six I tried differed.
Zevia is a bit expensive, but Target often has it on sale.

  • Sweetened with Stevia, a natural sweetener
  • Comes in 12 different flavors

  • Cons:
  • More expensive than popular soft drink brands
  • Might be difficult to find

  • If you are a diet soda lover this is a great alternative. I, personally, wont buy it regularly though.

    Teething Bling-Beautiful For Mom & Safe For Babies


     Teething Bling offers-pendants, bangles and key chains (Mommy Jewelery)They are made from the same silicone as most teething toys. Teething Bling products contain no harmful chemicals such as phthalates, BPAs, PVCs, lead or latex and all pendants come with a breakaway clasp as an added safety measure.

      Here's a pic of Mason trying out his new chewy. He absolutely loves sticking it in his mouth and also playing with it while nursing. It is very soft for his little sore gums. He did try to take it off me so i would recommend this for babies who are just getting teeth or younger then him haha! Overall it is very well made and it helped him out:)

     I always have this reoccurring problem when throwing the boy's cups in my bag: When I go to retrieve them, nine times out of ten something else ends up soaking wet from the condensation.That's why I was super excited to try out Kidzikoo.

     What is Kidzikoo? Kidzikoo is an insulator for your child's bottle or sippy cup. It works with any sippy or bottle 8 to 12 oz. They have tons of absolutely adorable prints to chose from, all named after the kids who inspired the designs. AND they are machine washable as well.

     When choosing our Kidzikoo to try out, my son could not decide which one to pick. We sent Lindsay-CEO and Inventor of Kidzikoo, an email asking her to surprise us with either the Andy or Will print. When the packaged arrived, to our surprise she sent both!! Now Mason and Jayce each got to try it out! They are a little hard to put on the first try but after the first cup you can slide it on and off numerous brands of sippys. It wont stretch out, it conforms perfectly to the cup each time.They are also super absorbent so no more wet bags for us. :)

    Mason and Jay love their Kidzikoo because it keeps little hands dry and is super stylish.

    You can buy your Kidzikoo here and check out some other Kool products they have as well!

    Boogie Wipes- Review & Giveaway

     About Boogie Wipes- Boogie Wipes are alcohol-free, extra soft, and moisturize with Vitamin E and Aloe. They come in Simply Unscented, Great Grape, Original Fresh, and Magic Menthol. Recommended by Me and Pediatricians as a gentle, effective alternative to dry tissues. They also have a line for adults called Saline Soothers!

      I was fortunate enough to try out 3 of the 4 different scents:Great Grape, Original Fresh, and Magic Menthol. Our Boogie Wipes came in perfect time because the kids started getting runny noses a few days ago. Most kids absolutely hate getting their noses wiped--especially my boys! These make it 100% better. They're very soft and although the grape scent is a bit strong, the wipes make my job of wiping their little noses a lot easier! This household is definately Boogie Wipes fans! I like them so much i even use them!:)


    Pros: Gentle on little noses, the aloe helps moisturize the nose so it doesn't get dry, smells delicious, cute packaging, affordable, and available at local retailers everywhere!


    Cons: The scent can be a little bit strong, a bit more expensive than regular tissue (but totally worth it)!


    These can be found at a list of retailers:Click here to find Boogie Wipes near you or visit them on Facebook and Twitter

    Jayce Approved:

    One lucky reader will get to win two packs of Boogie Wipes! Open to readers in the U.S and Canada:)

     I recently got the chance to get the boys pictures taken by Chelseay from ChelseayClarkPhotgraphy. I really enjoyed our experience with her. She is very nice and super patient. She let the boys do there own thing and capture some really great pictures of both Mason and Jayce and let me tell you that's super hard to do with them being boys there everywhere.I would highly recommend her to anyone in the San Antonio area looking for a photographer.

    Here is her website link:

    My story part 1: Introductions

    Jay and May
      My name is Whitney. I just recently moved to San Antonio Texas from Southern California. I love couponing and spending time with my friends and family.  I have a huge family but will introduce you to the ones i love the most!! Ha ha jk what i meant to say was i will introduce you to the ones that have a big part in my life.

      I'm very lucky to be a stay at home mom to Mason and Jayce. Mason (7/20/2011)  just turned one and from the moment his big 9 pounds came into this world he has been such a blessing. He has the sweetest personality and is just a joy to be around. Jayce (10/08/2009) is my little wiz toddler he knows how to work an Ipad better then i do. He has the biggest smile it will light up the whole room. He loves Spiderman and Power Rangers just to name a few things. I am very lucky to have such well behaved kids. Although they both have there moments as every kid does.

     Ricardo and I have been together for 5 fabulous years. He is Currently a truck driver for Southwest Allout Transport. He is adjusting to our new life quickly and he loves it.

    My Parents Penny and John are both super hard working (even though my dad needs to retire haha) and rarely get a break. They plan on moving to San Antonio eventually. We miss them a lot. Jayce loves when Nani and Papa come to visit every two weeks though.

           Even though i have 7 great sisters and 2 great brothers i will most likely be blogging about my sisters Ashley and Kalina. Ashley lives in Northern California and has three children Hannah, Emme and Gabe. she is the oldest of the three of us and is sometimes super bossy. Kalina lives in Arizona and also has three children Brynlee ,Kyah and Daegan. She  use to suffer from middle child syndrome but quickly grew out of it and now just loves being the center of attention haha. I'm super close to them both and i miss them a lot!!
