Back-To-School Health Tips and a Back-To-School Giveaway for You!

Print Friendly

Is your household back to school yet? Mine will be later this week! This summer flew by–the fastest on record it feels–and we are already gearing up for the fall! This period of transition can be hard in many ways, so I want you to remember to give yourselves that permission to transition, but sometimes we just need a little organization and inspiration. I’m sharing 9 tips for how you and your family can get (or stay!) into a healthy routine for this year over at The Better Mom!

Your Back-To-School Body: Healthy tips for you and your family! : and


And now for the giveaway! (I know I had one 2 weeks ago, but I can’t help it when good things come my way and I get to share them with you!) If you follow me on instagram or Facebook, you’ve seen me reference the market bag that I absolutely adore! I use it as a purse while I’m running errands and need to fit things like snacks and coupons in them! I got this bag (below) from a local company called Diengie Designs. You can read more about them here, but this sister and mama trio have bigger dreams than making bags! They desire to build a community center/headquarters so that it may reach single moms and their kids by providing jobs with on-site daycare, good wages, a cafeteria for lunches with their children and more! Don’t you love it!?

diengie designs Market Bag (GIVEAWAY!) :

I use it when shopping at our local Farmer’s Market every Saturday!

Also, check out the cute bracelet I have on. They made that too!

I figured since it is back-to-school time, most of your money is going to supplies and clothing for everyone BUT you, so I wanted one person to win a little something for themselves! This darling cell phone pouch and key loop will be one lucky person’s gift! They made it just for our giveaway!

    My perfect answer for this question four months ago would have been pumpkin spice latte hands down. However, since I gave up sugar around Mother’s Day in order to make myself a better mamma I don’t know! I am kind of scared/excited for the fall and Christmas to come because I will be finding out for the first time ever what I really love about these seasons without food being front and center. Eek!

  81. Sorry fall lovers, I’m the fall grinch.
    I love summer. I love going to the beach. I love BBQs. I love Italian ices. I love,having my boys home (even with the bickering). I love the,trees full of leaves. I love my vegetable garden… all of this fades away in the fall. Boohoooooo. :(

  88. Crisp air!!!!!!!!

  89. Family outings to the pumpkin patch, apple pie, extended family get togethers, apple picking, and lots more!

  90. My favorite thing about fall is the crispness of the air. It is so comforting and just sets me in a mood for the crunch of leaves beneath my feet and light sweaters.

  91. Living in an area where there is not a big change between seasons I still choose fall as my favorite. Living in Cali I enjoy the change in the way the sun shines a certain crisp of orange on the land. Decorating my house for fall and everything pumpkin really feels peaceful and gives that feeling of “hey relax, the weather is changing.”
