Why I love Pampers

So I know you hear me talk about diapers a lot, but honestly, being a mom means that diapers become a huge staple in your life.  Trust me on this, with a bad diaper, your day can be totally ruined.

Last week I was at an event with a bunch of kids and Livi and I were there for about three hours. I changed her before we left the house and generally don’t worry about her diaper again until we are home, or she poops. As we were gathering up the kids to take them home, I noticed friends sons diaper was literally the size of a balloon… I asked if he had pooped and she said no, but that this brand of diapers (not Pampers) always looked like that after a couple of hours. I couldn’t believe it. Livi’s has NEVER looked like that, and I’m thankful that Pampers is so absorbent. I can’t imagine how uncomfortable the poor little guy must have been!

Secondly, the smell. Ok this is probably going to sound weird to you, but the smell of Pampers diapers brings me back to my childhood. I used to make my mom buy me newborn Pampers diapers so I could put them on my dolls. The second I opened my first pack for Livi, the nostalgia of my childhood immediately rushed in and it was such a surreal moment to remember changing my dolls, as I was about to change my real baby. It was likely the hormones, but it brought tears to my eyes.

Thirdly, I love that I get to collect points and cash them in for goodies with the Pampers Rewards Program. I appreciate a company that gives back, and it makes me feel better to know that I’m earning rewards for something that I have to buy weekly. Plus, I feel super cool every time I scan a barcode.

Lastly, it makes life a breeze when I can directly auto ship my Pampers products from Amazon with their Subscribe & Save program. There is nothing worse than forgetting to get diapers and realizing you have none left after your baby has a blowout. With auto ship, they are delivered right to my door every month and that makes this momma a very happy camper.

It’s funny, as I sit here writing this, if you had asked me two years ago if I would truly LOVE a diaper, I would think you were crazy… haha how times have changed!!



I’ve been using Pampers since day one and only partner with brands I truly love, prior to being contacted. The opinions on this blog are my own

Me, Myself & I

Earth Day Friday!

Currently: Sitting on the floor trying to organize everything for my taxes… It’s the actual worst job in the world. SAVE ME!

Wearing: Grey Nike Sweats and a Blue Tank

Eating/Drinking: TinyTea from Your Tea. I’m on day 2 of my detox and dreaming of a large cheese pizza

Plans for today: Taxes for the next couple of hours.  I have to get a run in today, and then a candle lit (earth day so we are turning off the lights) movie night with my sister-in-laws!

Currently Watching: 48 Hours Hard Evidence.  I don’t even know why I watch this because every single time I convince myself that there is a murderer in my house.

Current Stress:  I’m hungry.  Taxes suck.  & Oakley is currently experiencing Paraphimosis.  I won’t get into detail about what that is because it’s SUPER disgusting, but I have a feeling I will end up at the vet at some point today.

Cuddling with: Oliver and Oakley


Hair: High bun

Make up: None

Voila 🙂

PS Remember it’s Earth Day!  Do your part to show the earth we love it! (Plant a tree, Turn out the lights, Make sure your sink isn’t leaking, Recycle, Reduce, Reuse, Go Meatless for a week etc.)

What I Am Currently Doing Wednesdays!

Currently: Sitting on the couch in my new house

Wearing: Grey Sweats and my fav Marvel Comic Book Tshirt

Eating/Drinking: A Large Iced Coffee from Tim Horton’s, made with milk, and only 1 shot of base.  Any more base, and it feels like I am drinking straight syrup.

Plans for today: NOTHING. I have been shooting a movie and working long hours, so today I am going to enjoy doing nothing.

Currently Watching: Maury.  Don’t judge me.  I am super curious to see if this guy is the baby daddy.

Current Stress:  I have to go to the bathroom, but as stated earlier, super curious to see who the baby daddy is.

Cuddling with: Oliver and Oakley

Hair: Unbrushed low pony

Make up: None

Voila 🙂

Before I Brush My Teeth – VLOG (5)

It’s all about the ‘he said she said’ BULL@#$%


noun1.           a currently circulating story or report of uncertain or doubtful truth.

Rumours… Gotta love ’em.

I know everyone deals with rumours and gossip and I used to honestly believe that there was a grain of truth in everything, but after Life with Derek started airing I realized how wrong I was.  People can literally make up anything they want and others will believe it, because it is easier to believe something negative about someone, than to find out the truth.

Today I met a girl who told me that she was good friends with my prom date from highschool.  I said, ‘Oh awesome, how do you know Derek?’ she said, ‘Derek? No, his name is Jacob.  You went to prom with Jacob.’  Oh I did, did I?  Weird, cause I was pretty sure I went to prom with a guy named Derek.  But she assured me, Jacob definitely told her we went together, so we must have.  Funny how she knew more about me than I did.  Jacob is a liar haha.

This is something I have dealt with for years, and I’m sure all of you have dealt with it too.  There is nothing more annoying than someone believing they know every little thing about you, or worse, making up and spreading terrible things about you, but I have learned to let things roll off my back.  Those who know me, know the things that are true, and the things that aren’t.  We usually get a pretty good laugh out of the rumours that come up.

Some of my favourite rumours include:

  • I’ve been pregnant many times (usually they just took a picture of me after eating a big meal)
  • I’ve dated guys I have never heard of/met
  • Stories about me from someone’s sister’s cousin’s best friend’s brother who is a ‘close friend of mine’
  • I once put up a picture with my four brothers, and someone was pathetic enough to spread the picture saying that I had a 4some with these random guys…. Literally the grossest things anyone has ever said.
  • I’m a crazy dog lady who can’t go anywhere without my dog…. (This one does have some truth to it…..)

The list goes on, but those are some of the highlights.  I know everyone deals with this, so I thought I would just vent to you guys today.

What crazy things have you heard about yourself?
