*The Dial brand provided me with a sample of Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap in exchange for a product review. However, all opinions expressed are my own.*
I’ve always loved Dial, but their new Deep Cleansing Hand Soap is going to be our favorite new family soap. In our bathrooms, we use liquid soap because it looks neater and generally creates less mess.

Be Her Cheerleader
Breastfeeding is really hard. Everyone seems to talk about it like it is the most natural thing in the World. It is natural for our bodies to breastfeed, but it takes quite a bit of learning and practice before you have it down. Mom will definitely remember that Dad was her biggest supporter during the struggles.

On any given day you can usually find at least 2 whole chickens in my freezer. When they’re on sale, we’ll grab a few to stock-up. A small whole chicken will cost us about $4 when they’re on sale and we’ll get at least 2 meals for out of it for the hubby, the toddler, and myself. The first day we’ll just eat the chicken however it was cooked (usually in the slow cooker). Then later that night I’ll pick the rest of the chicken for another meal.
One of my favorite leftover chicken dishes is a chicken pot pie, but with biscuits.

I’m very proud to be a Bravado Designs Mama for 2014! Throughout the year I’ll be sent samples of new products and new colors.
If you’ve ever attempted breastfeeding, you know the ups and downs that you’ll encounter. Breastfeeding can seriously wear you down. Most days I feel completely gross, sitting at home in my chair all day basically just switching Owen from one side to the other. I read a post last week from another mom that said she wasn’t sure why people needed to wear nursing bras and I was completely blown away by it. She said you should be able to easily do it wearing your normal bra. Clearly, she never nursed a baby full-time. I’m sure that most breastfeeding moms feel very similar to the way I feel. We need to feel like a woman again, not a milk machine. Bravado! Designs allows me feel like a woman, but allows me to be nurse my baby whenever, wherever I need to.
