prAna {Giveaway} #JustBeYou

With 2 kiddos and 1 on the way it is easy to lose pieces of who you are. We (try!) to practice Attachment Parenting which one of the principles is balance. Self care is important to everyone in the family. Kind of like the saying- "happy wife, happy life-" It's true. But when life starts to pile up, kids sometimes overshadow your personal needs/wants. That's why I'm loving this month's Stonyfield and prAna campaign- #JustBeYou.

Oh My Yog and prAna want to see our style, flavor, and how we express ourselves in the world. So it was very fitting that I ate my flavor this morning for breakfast forgetting that I needed it for some photos. So that's me lately- forgetful, hungry, working and writing, 30.5 weeks pregnant, lounging in some stretchy pants with my family running around in the background. 

I see myself as a Wild Quebec Blueberry kind of girl. We live freely on the wild side- yet I have gotten a little sweeter with age. Sometimes I'm a traditional Apple Cinnamon or Pacific Coast Strawberry.  
My style is whatever is comfortable. The benefit of working from home is being able to stay in pj's or lounge wear all day. When I do go out- I feel the need to put on jeans, but immediately put my stretchy pants on when I get back home. I prefer wearing yoga pants over sweats. It makes getting down on the floor with the kids easier. I also like flowing yoga pants and pockets are a plus. So if there were a pair of yoga pants that represented my personality- the Linea prAna organic cotton and hemp blend pant would be me. 

  • Slub jersey knit 
  • Denim detailing at back body 
  • Drop waist detailing at front body 
  • Flatlock seaming 
  • Gusset for added comfort 
  • Size Small = 32 (81.3cm) inseam 
  • Fitted Flare leg 
  • Low rise

Shutterfly Teams Up With Stonyfield

I have been a huge Shutterfly fan for the past 9 years, so when I found out they teamed up with Stonyfield, I was super excited! When I had my own photography company, I would use Shutterfly for printing because their quality was always amazing. Over the years, they have added to their photo gifts and decor and I have loved seeing all of the neat photo creations.
I love giving photo gifts for the holidays since they are personal and unique. I have loved seeing our photos printed on different materials- including wood, steel, glass, canvas, plastic, and other man-made materials. My mother-in-law loves getting Shutterfly ornaments of the kids and my mom loves getting her yearly coffee mug. We have made Shutterfly cutouts, mousepads, plaques, jewelry, plates, stickers, luggage tags, calendars, notebooks, stationary, tote bags, and more. I have recently started a magnet collection on our fridge. And we print photobooks at least 5-6 times a year.
Since I take a million photos, printing everything became an issue. I ran out of wall space for photo albums and I got tired of envelopes of photos filling up drawers and cabinets. So photobooks became our solution. Every 6 months, each child gets a book created for that 6 months of their life. This way, each child has their own book documenting all of the fun they had that year. I've done this for almost 9 years! For the first 2 years of their lives, I've taken weekly photos of the kids to document their changes- those have been my favorites. You can customize your Shutterfly books and choose your own backgrounds, layouts, stickers, borders, text boxes and more. It is the best digital scrapbook you can create and print. The only downside is that custom books can take a while to create- I spend at least 15+ hours on each book. Shutterfly does have an autofill feature, but I love being able to design our own books!
Want $20 off your next Shutterfly order? Pick up a 6 pack of Stonyfield YoBaby or YoTot and find your Shutterfly code on the only orange lid! This offer is only good for 1 per household.

Parenting Is Easy: You're Probably Just Doing It Wrong

Have you ever looked at a ridiculous photo and created your own caption? Or made a joke at how obnoxious a photo looks? After seeing a photo of a mother breastfeeding her newborn on a golf course, that is exactly what Sara Given started doing on her Tumblr page, It's Like They Know Us. Now Sara has published her first book using stock photo images that are more Leave it to Beaver than the real world with her hysterical captions.

If you are in need of a dose of healthy sarcasm or want to give an amazing baby shower gift, Sara's new book Parenting Is Easy: You're Probably Just Doing It Wrong is the book for you! The book has several chapters including pregnancy, newborn, toddler, and school-aged years- so no matter the age of your child, you will enjoy. 

Stonyfield sent their YoGetters a copy of Parenting Is Easy: You're Probably Just Doing It Wrong and challenged us to find a stock photo to caption. This was loads of fun, so if you have time, go to the Mkokopelli Facebook page and submit your own! 

Pregnancy tip #147: Make sure you wear a crop top while grocery shopping so no one mistakes you for being fat
