Fashion.  It’s a statement of who you are.

But that doesn’t mean fashion has to cost a lot. I try to choose clothes and accessories that  make a statement but doesn’t kill my budget.  I look for the unusual, different and natural.  For me, a watch is a fashion statement, a reflection not only of time but of the person you are inside and out.  To me there is nothing more beautiful than nature and when nature and fashion collide, I can’t help but get excited!

Screen Shot 2015-02-21 at 5.18.52 PMI was asked to review this Jord Ely watch in maple.  If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, we don’t do a ton of reviews. But when Jord approached me, I couldn’t wait to check it out.

The wood watch is a quality piece, durable, light weight and simple in statement. I love the fact that the watch goes with everything in my wardrobe and has enough flash to dress up and dress down.  The watch can be dressed up with additional bracelets or bangles or simply be worn on its own. Because the watches are handcrafted from wood, it naturally takes people back to nature.

Jord wood watches is a locally owned St. Louis, Missouri company where they design/produce real wood watches from sustainable materials from all around the world. They have men, women and unisex watches. Prices start at $120.

For me, watches have always been an accessory that makes me feel pulled together. This wooden watch fits my personality here in Texas. I love having this timeless piece as part of my wardrobe.

Now it’s your turn for a chance to win your own Jord wood watch. One lucky reader will win a $129 gift certificate to put toward their own choice of wood watch, from Jord’s women’s or men’s watches selection, plus free shipping.  Leave a comment below about what you like best about Jord watches.

Teams consist of 2-5 friends.  There will be 300+ challenges and you do as many as possible in an action-packed 24 hours.

I don’t know about you, but I get tired of looking through my Facebook newsfeed at all the fun things my friends did, when I did the normal grocery store, clean house, pay bills weekend… definitely nothing Facebook posting worthy!

Whether you raft a river with arm floaties, do 15 minutes of hot yoga wearing hot pants, eat a tuna fish sandwich and then kiss a team member, or sing “Endless Love” to a random couple in a park: You choose the GoBe challenges you like best and fulfill them in whichever way your brain dictates.  It will probably be the most fun I’ve had in a 24 hour span in a long time and breaks the routine of day to day living!  Check out this video!

 

Here is how the games work.  You’ll submit photos and videos through the GoBe Games app and they’ll keep a live score of who’s in the lead. After the 24 hours of racing are over, they’ll hold an awards ceremony/party open to all (not just participants) with a free concert and local food to cap off the event. The Grand Prize winners get a trip to Costa Rica for their team.

GoBe Games isn’t just for fitness junkies! Sure, they’ll make you sweat and burn, but many challenges are designed to get participants engaged in the community—from eating unhealthy quantities of food at local dives to tracking down otherwise elusive politicians to walking old ladies across the street.

You can like or you can live. GoBe Alive.

Finding Our Balance ~ #Balance Project + GREAT Balance Bar Giveaway

Posted by My Dallas Mommy on Thursday, February 19th, 2015 at 1:02 pm
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the Full Disclosures!

balanceHave you ever asked yourself, “Is this all there is to life?” Or ask yoursef “What if?” that mophs into “Was that it?” I’ve been there and done that.  I still do that, which I’ve learned is a good sign that my life has become unbalanced again.

When I started this website, I took a huge risk.  There was a lot of uncertainty, repeated failures and insane hours.  But I have never looked back as I have learned so much and have been able to be here for my children when they needed me. We’ve also built an amazing community of like-minded people who believe you can live well on less.

However, I have also realized that through those years I lacked a lot of balance.  And when you don’t have balance in life, thinks can seem pretty bleak and I can tend to get, well… a little crazy at times :)!

crazy housewife

Some new research reveals that we all crave balance but can’t achieve it consistently. Researchers* found that 98% of Americans believe achieving and maintaining balance in their life is important, however, only 14% report that they always feel balanced.  Great… so we want it, but the REAL question is…how do we get there?

Balance Bar Company has launched The Balance Project, a multi-year, multi-platform program to open a dialogue that will aid in improving America’s levels of balance.  It’s an online hub to share ideas, daily victories and challenges and even have some fun as we all embark on a journey to sustain balance.

It’s there to make sure the family time, friend time, work time and play time are all equally good times. As a mom, I can speak honestly that our work is never done.  NEVER :)!
According to the study, nearly every single mom agrees that health (99%) and family and personal relationships (99%) are important to achieving balance in life.

balance projectHere is a look at how Americans are trying to achieve balance:

Keeping their finances in order (66%)
Getting enough sleep (68%)
Eating healthy foods (56%)
Exercising regularly (48%)

But roughly 2 in 5 Americans think it’s difficult to actually find balance. The Balance Project’s exclusive guide, Gabrielle Reece, a fitness and wellness role model, entrepreneur, wife, and mother of three, will provide advice, tips and her personal insights for addressing and achieving balance in these areas.  Plus, you can take a fun quiz to find out how balanced you are.

  • Nutrition: Cover the basics. Make as many meals as you can at home so you can control your own nutrition. Take snacks like fruit, nuts or a Balance Bar® wherever you go to prevent mindless eating.
  • Career: Concentrate on one thing at a time. Studies show that we can accomplish so much more and with less stress when we do one thing at a time.
  • Friends/Family: Create boundaries regarding your technology. When you leave work, make sure you’re actually leaving work. If you are pushing your child on the swing, put your phone in your pocket and leave the texting or emails for later. If someone writes you a note, don’t feel the pressure to respond within five seconds and miss a family mealtime opportunity. Make the boundaries for yourself and let others know what they are so you can live a happy, healthy lifestyle.
  • Me Time: It’s ok to just say “No”. Learn to use and love this word. This tiny little word will save you so much heartache and excuse making. “No” will keep you from over scheduling your life and actually keep you free for the things you want to do. Life is for living and not just for filling days with obligations.
  • Schedule one thing you look forward to each day. Have coffee with a friend or indulge in a harmless guilty pleasure. Do something that breaks up your day and focuses on you being you – not you the professional, or partner or parent, just you.

 

What do I do?  I exercise regularly, read the bible daily, have a date night twice a month with Geno (although we could use once a week), find one hour a week for “just me” (this one is hard to stick too though).  Maybe for you, it’s spending time outside, writing in your diary.  Remember this is for YOU!  Make it yours, own it and do it! No more “what if’s” or “is this all there is?”. The first step is to make it a priority.

*This study was conducted by KRC Research via an online survey of 1,002 American adults ages 18-64 from November 11-14, 2014.

One lucky reader will win an awesome Balance Bar Prize Pack including a box of 15 Balance Bars(varieties may vary), an iPhone Card Holder, Notebook and a cute Balance Bar tote bag. US residents only, age 18 or older. Giveaway ends 2/26 at 11:59pm EST.

Note: Participants must follow @BalanceBar on Twitter and Facebook in order to enter. Good luck!!  To enter, leave a comment below on how you would like to find more balance in your life.

How to Stay Hydrated ~ DripDrop Great Hydration Solution

Posted by My Dallas Mommy on Wednesday, February 18th, 2015 at 1:20 pm
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the Full Disclosures!

Screen Shot 2015-02-16 at 1.01.25 PMMy son is a high school baseball catcher in the HOT Texas sun.  My daughter is a gymnast and practices over 4 hours a night.  I exercise daily at UFC Gym.  Keeping our family properly hydrated in both the summer and winter proves to be a constant challenge. In fact, I tend to drink less in the winter because I don’t “feel” hot or thirsty. But with heaters in our homes and cars, water being lost through breath and sweat, etc. it is especially important to maintain hydration when it’s cold!

The health authorities commonly recommend eight 8-ounce glasses, which equals about 2 liters, or half a gallon. This is called the 8×8 rule and is very easy to remember. But if you exercise or engage in any activity that makes you sweat, you need to drink extra water to compensate for the fluid loss.

Knowing how to rehydrate

Water is the first line of defense when it comes to hydration.  It’s cheap and as long as you drink enough along with a healthy diet, you probably don’t need anything more.  But there are times that our bodies need more than just H20.

  1. Exercising for long periods where sweat loss is high
  2. Two-a-day workouts or competitions
  3. Sickness, diarrhea, vomiting, surgery

 

In these situations, drinking an electrolyte solution will enhance rehydration by replacing those lost when you sweat. I see most parents turning to sports drinks.  But these drinks can cause serious damage to your teeth – putting you at a much higher risk for cavities and tooth decay. In fact, a recent study from the Academy of General Dentistry found sports drinks contain so much acid that they start destroying teeth after only five days of consistent use.

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 12.56.11 PMThere is a new hydration solution called DripDrop that I had a chance to check out. It uses medical rehydration standards to provide consumers with a better way to rehydrate. It’s a powder that you mix with water at home or on the go. It comes in small pouch that you can carry with you in your purse or pocket. DripDrop was formulated by a family physician who was tired of prescribing poor-tasting pediatric beverages to his patients.

My kids and I loved the taste of DripDrop. And what I found interesting is that my energy levels increased within 20 minutes of drinking it.  I think I was dehydrated and didn’t even know it.  I particularly loved the lemon flavor as it tasted just like lemonade!  YUM!  This is going to be an awesome resource for me during my son’s hot baseball games.  And my daughter gulped it down thinking it was lemonade.  Yay…something she’ll drink!

You can purchase DripDrop at CVS, Walgreens and on Amazon.  There are four packets in a box and it retails for $9.99.

We are offering a giveaway to one of our luck readers so they too can try DripDrop. They will receive one box of lemon and one box of berry. Just leave a comment below and we’ll choose a winner on February 25th!  Good luck!

Screen Shot 2015-02-05 at 3.38.32 PM Here is the creation I made online, Coconut Oat Dream Machine.  Let us know what you made so we can have all of our readers vote for yours as well!

Screen Shot 2015-02-05 at 4.54.50 PM

 

We have Kashi Oats in our pantry all the time.  My kids aren’t allowed out the door without breakfast.  Usually it’s a quick bowl of cereal.  Often I’ll add some healthy toppings like strawberries, bananas in the spare moments we have in the morning :)!

However, this after school snack has proven to be a winner every single time.

Even though it has some “sweets” in it, the recipe also has a lot of healthy ingredients and I feel good sending my daughter off for 4 hours at gymnastics before she gets a full meal in.

It’s actually quite simple:

Kashi Oats
Yogurt
Strawberries
Chocolate covered biscuit sticks
Ghiradelli Chocolate
Marshmallows

Pour in the oats, add yogurt, add a few more oats and top with marshmallows, chocolate and biscuit sticks!  Guaranteed to be gone in 5 minutes flat :)!

Oreo Cookie Recipe Contest + Red Velvet Oreos #PlayWithOreo

Posted by My Dallas Mommy on Monday, February 9th, 2015 at 9:15 am
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the Full Disclosures!

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 5.28.50 PMAre you an Oreo fan?  Our kids devour them within 48 hours every time we buy them at the store.  There are so many flavors of Oreos available, but we’ve found a new favorite!  RED VELVET OREOS. Heck with the Double Stuff…it’s Double YUM!

There is a fun new contest called Albertsons Stop & Play with Oreo. You can enter to win fun prizes by sharing a picture of your favorite Oreo recipe creation! Each entry receives a chance to win a Polaroid CUBE camera or Oreo prize package.

Ava and her next door neighbor, Ava (I know, two Ava’s, same grade, same school, next door neighbors, BIG TROUBLE :)) concocted an extra special sweet treat with the new Red Velvet Oreos.

Check out our recipe, Red Velvet Oreo Cookie Surprise.  Now, I’m warning you, this is NOT calorie free.  In fact, I’m pretty sure it would tip my suggested caloric intake by half for the day. But what an easy recipe for the kids to do themselves all while having a BLAST!


Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 4.42.11 PMIt’s pretty simple, just add a bit of oil into a fondue dish. Add your favorite cookie dough (we used chocolate chip).

Take the “stuff” out of the Oreo and smash it in the middle of the dough. Crumble the Oreo cookies on the top and bake in the oven for 12-16 minutes.

Let the cookie cool and then add Marshmallow Puff or ice cream and top with sprinkles.

You’ll notice, the cookies were gone?  Yep, that was less than 2 days!  I actually had to hide the Oreos so I could do this post.

The end result… PURE BLISS!  P.S. I do not recommend feeding your children this right before bed as I sent these girls out for a late night jump on the trampoline to get them off their sugar high!   A big thanks to Ava & Ava for creating this delish dessert!

Joico and Great Clips have teamed up this month to offer a us great way to save time, money and our hair!

You’ll definitely want to check out Great Clip’s Online Check-in…where you can check wait times and check-in to your favorite local Great Clips locations. I tried this with my daughter and it was such a time saver!  We use the Great Clips in Flower Mound and during Christmas break it is normally very busy.  I used the online check-in and they were waiting for US!  Too cool!

IMG_1062Plus, you’ll want to check out the hot prices on Joico products! You can get the famous “five-minute miracle” K-PAK Deep Penetrating Reconstructor on sale all January for only $10.99 in salons. This typically retails at around $19.99-$25.99 so it’s a great savings and no coupons are needed!

In fact all Joico products are on sale for $10.99:

1. K-PAK Shampoo
2. K-PAK Conditioner
3. K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor
4. K-PAK Intense Hydrator
5. Joico Color Endure Shampoo
6. Joico Color Endure Conditioner
7. K-PAK Clarifying Shampoo
8. Joico I-C-E Hair Spiker Styling Glue (aka “Spiker”)

The award-winning product is perfect for hair that has been damaged by styling tools, chemicals, and the environment. Its powerful combination of amino acids has a loyal following, and now Great Clips customers can try it for a price that can’t be beat.  This is a great stock up price on top quality hair products.  Treat yourself!  I did and my hair is thanking me!

IMG_1061Plus, how would you like to win free haircuts for one whole year?  That would be a HUGE savings!  You can enter the “Savvy Savings Sweepstakes” for a chance to win a JOICO haircare package, and free haircuts for a year from Great Clips with a total grand prize package worth over $420-$47.

Then, head over to your Great Clips salon and get a haircut you want without the wait. Because you used Online Check-In to get on the list, chances are you’ll be next or almost next as soon as you arrive. You can also check in when and how you like.
