It's been over a year since I've moved to Austin, Tx. I love it here! It's great. I miss the small town I'm from, but Austin is growing on me. One of my favorite things about Austin is how this city promotes a healthy active lifestyle....and also tacos.
When I first started my job as a Child & Parent advocate for victims/survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking, the word self care came up in every training I went to. People would always ask what do you do to take care of yourself? Well, I like shooting guns, working out hardcore, and hanging out with my kids/family. I would get weird looks about the first two answers and suggestions on self care that was a lot more calmer and relaxing. My work offers yoga or meditation once a month. I thought I'd give yoga a try!
I did not like it. I wish I did. It looks fun and poses look neat, but for some reason it's not relaxing for me. I also think I'm holding my breathe or not breathing correctly. Maybe with more practice and tries I'll enjoy it.
One thing I enjoy about yoga is how cute their clothes are. prAna yoga clothes are my favorite! They are so comfy and fashionable. The pictures above, I'm wearing their Deco Crop leggings (dragonfly) in a small (http://www.prana.com/deco-crop.html?colors=dragonfly). I tried to do a yoga pose called Kapotasana or King Pigeon pose, I thought I had it, but when I looked at the pictures it looked nothing like the pose. My prAna leggings were so comfortable and stretchy, they didn't bother me. I have other leggings that constrict my movement and/or are very uncomfortable. I for sure would't be able to do many poses with those leggings. I'll stick to my prAna leggings.
One of my favorite things about prAna is how they give back. They are big supporters of showing love for our planet. The offer sustainable, recycled, fair trade certified and hemp items. They also give back to communities all over the world - one of them is connection underserved youth with the outdoors.
Another reason why I love their clothes is how versatile it is. Whether I'm trying out yoga, to grocery shopping with the kids, my leggings go well with my activities. prAna also has a great clothing line. I love my Daria Sweater Hoodie in muted truffle color (small) - http://www.prana.com/daria-sweater-hoodie.html?colors=mutedtruffle. It's perfect for fall weather! Check out the sweater in the pictures below.

Lunchables Organic - One thing My Kids and I Always Agree On
This summer has flown by! The kids have been getting spoiled at my mom's house while I'm at work. When they go back to school, they are going to have a hard time going to bed and waking up early. Connor said the worst part is not getting to play the iPad as much! I try to limit his screen time on the iPad, but my mom for some reason extends his time. He has even gotten his four year old sister to build a house and "join worlds" on Minecraft. I've tried to play that game, but it makes me dizzy and I can't get the hang of it. Although we don't see eye to eye, Lunchables Organic is something we can all agree on!
The kids love Lunchables. I'm glad to have found Lunchables Organic. Their favorite is the pizza with pepperoni! They love it and this mama loves how Lunchables Organic is USDA certified organic and free of artificial preservatives, flavors of colors.*
Lunchables Organic makes the perfect on the go lunch or snack! Scotty and I recently took the Lunchables Organic pizza with pepperoni on a kayaking trip. She wasn't the only one that wanted Lunchables. The ducks tried to grab a bite! Scotty wouldn't share, but enjoyed watching them attempt to eat her food.
Although Connor is not ready for summer to end, or as he says, not ready for his iPad screen time to end - he is excited for Lunchables Organic to be packed in his lunchbox. It's an easy, very convenient lunch that we can all agree on.
