If you are a mom and haven’t heard of or tried Honest Co. then this blog is for you. I can remember years ago seeing all of these cute diapers my friends and family were using for their little ones but I just didn’t understand what the big deal was about. Even after having Connor I didn’t use their diapers (sorry but it’s true.) I did how ever use their baby shampoo and body wash! I loved that way it made his hair feel and the smell was so amazing. It wasn’t until it was time to send Connor to school that I really started to look into the company. I had used Pampers on Connor from the day he was born. And I loved their new pull on cruisers and had even got him their pull-ups. But when school was starting I knew I didn’t want to send the same pull-ups everyone else was going to send.
I remembered that Honest had diapers with the different designs on them and decided to check out their website to see if they had pull-ups too. They did and I loved the different chooses. I seen that they do the bundles/subscription of 7 packs of diapers and 4 packs of wipes, that ship right to your door. I looked all over for a place to do a bundle with the pull-ups but couldn’t find anything. So I sent them an e-mail asking them if they ofter them and if so what was the price. Within 30 minutes I had received an email telling me that yes they would create one for me, sent me the link to pick out my designs, and the price was the same of the diaper bundles. The bundle savings is really good too. If you brought them individually it would be $96.45 but the subscrition price is $79.95. You also get to chose how often you want it shipped. (every 3,4,5,6,8, or 12 weeks) Bonus savings if you add extras to your shipping, like their shampoo or any of their other products. You can save up to 15% off of those items. Shipping is free with orders over $50. So that means your bundles ship FREE!
We have loved them. I could really kick myself for not doing this sooner. I used to hate bring Connor out when he was little and some times I just needed diapers and a trip to the store was just a pain. If we ever have another baby, I’m telling you I’m sticking with Honest for sure.
I did notice that this shipment has the new and improved design!! The tops and legs now have a more underwear like feel and make for easier on and off. I find it makes them look like training underwear too. They feel a lot softer too. And from the way my husband is being grossed out right now its safe to say it holds even thought nasty ones we don’t like to talk about lol.
One more awesome thing about having the bundle shipped right to my door is Connor loves that he gets a new toy to play with every month. What is it with kids and them loving boxes so much.
Honest is sold at Target if you to just try a pack before jumping into a bundle! They also sale their shampoos and washes too.
So there it is! My honest review on the Honest Co. pull-ups! This blog post is NOT sponsored in any way by Honest. I spend my own money on these products. I can’t even tell you if they will ever see this! I wanted to tell y’all about this company on my own. But if anyone wants to send it to them okay total okay with it!!! Hope I can help at lest one of you out there to learn about new company that will help make mom life a little easier!!!
Enjoy these out takes of me trying to get Connor to stay and take a picture lol I thought it was funny that I caught him falling!!
Ya’ll I am over the moon excited about working with Beachwaver (if you can’t tell by now)!! Today I received my very first PR Box from them, but not just from them I mean EVER!!!!! I knew I was getting some of the stuff but when I seen that I had two different boxes I was a little lost. To be able to work with a company that I already love is such a blessing. To say I was shocked is an understatement!! Thank you so much Beachwaver! I can not wait to try out the Second Chance Dry Shampoo and the Shubie Surf Beach Spray (texturing)!

I cannot believe that it is 2020. I have so much hope for 2020! 2019 was one of our best years so far. Connor is growing so fast. He started school and loves it. He is learning so much! Raymond started working a schedule again for the first time in forever. I came into myself big time this year. I can’t believe that I took the jump and started my Instagram and blog! We brought our very first new boat. There was lots of family time with just the three of us was the best part of all. We got asked the whole year when we were going to have another baby. (Still don’t know if we even want a second baby yet) I had just two goals for 2019 and it was more family time and more me time. Both goals and more were accomplished!!
Yes, we did have a few downs but nothing that out weighted that good that we had. Finding out my mom had a very small amount of skin cancer and her surgery was the worst part of the year. But we have put it in God’s hands that all is good, and the surgery got all of it. Losing Abby has been very hard, its weird not having her here by my side.
I’ve grown into my own skin this year. I love when I get to fix myself up like I call it. The looks my husband gives me when I do makes me smile even more. All the try-ons have fun so much fun to do. I even got a few discount codes for all of my amazing follower. (See the Beachwaver and MilaRae posts) I had to remind myself this year that it’s okay to feel good about the things I have and worked for. I learned to not let others drama and troubles bring me down.
So, my hopes and plans for 2020. Of course, it’s to keep up the family time and working and growing for me. I would love to do a few more family trips. Even if it’s just to the camp!
I want to start doing some remodel in my home. I would love to have at least my living room done!! One of my big goals is to pay off bills that we have. We are getting to the age where we need to start really putting money away. The biggest and top goal is working more and build up my blog and feed on Instagram. All of my goals tie into each other. I put all of my hopes and goals into the hands of God. He knows what will work for us and our family. He knows where the road will take us.
I do have my fears for this coming year. We live in a town that is highly depended on the oil field. Raymond’s job most of the time is oil field based. So, with that going the way it has been for a few years we worry about it all the time. We are lucky to know that with his license we could move anywhere around water and be okay. But would a new start someplace really be a bad thing? Is it really a fear? God will only hand us what we can handle.
I hope that you all step into this new year and new decade with goals and dreams for your life. Let go of all the bad things from the past and move forward for a better you. Say goodbye to 2019 and all of the toxic people who pull you down. Let God into your life and let him guide you to your happy life that is planned for you!
