Celebrate Summer in Style with Oriental Trading!

Being a stay at home mom for so long, and even a home schooling family I was use to having so much time with my kids. This past year my kids returned to public school and I think the transition was rougher on me then the kiddos! This summer we are celebrating our summer in style and have found so many great ideas on Oriental Trading's web site. I just wanted to share with you guys a few of our favorite items for our summer adventures.
     As you know we are a family who loves to spend time in the mountains. Hiking and exploring are a way of life. My kids loved the idea of getting their own compass on our trips in the woods. Now we know we can always find our way with these brightly colored compasses.

     I wish dearly that we were able to spend all of our time in the mountains, but unfortunately that is not always an option. We love spending time away from the television playing games as a family. When I saw these giant backyard dominoes I was in love! My kids love to play dominoes as it is so why not increase the size of the fun ;)
     When we aren't off exploring or playing games it can get pretty hot here in West Texas :p and of course being the competitive type of mother it seems like there is always time for a good old fashion water balloon fight haha. I love that at Oriental Trading I can get water balloon sets in a family sized package.

      Remember whether you are out in the mountains this summer with your family, or just kicking soccer balls around the yard make the most of your summer and family. Kids grow up to fast and it is important to build those memories while you can. Oriental Trading is our go to for all our family fun needs. Whether it be summer time fun, or Christmas crafts we can always find what we need to make the most of our memories :D

Get Up, Get out, #Gosportit........comfortable yoga leggings for your #yogafix

     I have to say finding the perfect workout clothing for me seems to be a task more then a pleasure. Certainly it is not because I just don't enjoy shopping THAT much. lol Well obviously losing 10 pounds and a size means it is time to get a new set of workout clothing! Recently I was given a chance to review a pair of Yoga leggings from a company called Go Sport It. First I was very excited because as a woman who is a size 2 and 5'7, it is not really easy to find a good fitting pant. Go Sport It had not only a wide range of sizes, but I also got to select a length!

   When they got here I was really excited to try them on :) it was the day before my birthday so of course it felt like another fun gift haha. My first impression was how soft they were. The material is a thick, high quality material with a bunch of give(no worries I didn't use all that give). Only thing I wish I had done differently is warmed them up a bit! I guess the had been outside in the mail box a while waiting.
   When I got them on I was even more impressed, while the waist was a little higher then I am use to they felt so silky soft, that it was almost like not wearing workout clothing at all! But without the awkward stares at the gym ;) . Now I decided to try out the nifty little pocket built in the front, it is designed to hold anything from your iPod, to your id or money. When I put my iPod inside it did make sense why the waist was a bit higher.

   I can see these being the perfect addition to anyone's workout apparel. I think not only people who enjoy yoga, but runners would really enjoy these. The pocket held my iPod tight and allowed me to continue my activity without the fear of it falling out. I haven't washed them yet, but the stitching seems very secure. I can't wait to get a couple more pairs of these leggings!

**I received these leggings in return for a fair and honest review. All opinions are those of my own and were in no way influenced.*
