{I was thrilled to partner with JORD Wood Watches for this sponsored post. We received a complimentary watch but all feedback, thoughts, and opinions are my own.}

JORD Wood Watch for a deserving nurseSee this guy right here?

Yep. That one.

This is the hardest working man I know. Not only is he a fantastic husband and incredible dad, he is the greatest nurse who cares for the most critically ill or injured children in our community.

He is kind and generous. He takes the time to notice others and really see them.

He’s the kind of guy who learns the life story of the bathroom attendant and then brings him a round of his favorite beer.

He is devoted to his family. Everything he does, he does with us in mind.

He is completely selfless and puts others above himself every time.

So when JORD Wood Watches contacted me to see if I’d be interested in a beautiful timepiece for my husband to try out, I absolutely jumped at the chance.

As a homeschooling mom of three with no personal income, I was so excited to be able to give this man of mine a beautiful anniversary surprise. This gorgeous Zebrawood and Dark Sandalwood men’s watch from the Conway series was just perfect for him.

Strong, steady, classic. Timeless.

JORD Wood Watches come in a beautiful package.

The JORD philosophy could not be more on point for my husband and our family.

The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.

JORD Wood Watches measure moments.

I could not think of a more perfect gift for someone who tries to make every moment count for something bigger.

The time he spends caring for his patients and comforting their frightened families.

The time he spends with our children, experiencing the world through their eyes.

JORD Wood Watch moments

The time he has spent putting up with me over the last 14 years. =)

All those moments add up to so much more than minutes. And JORD has revolutionized the way we think about the passing of time with these beautiful reminders to make our time count.

We’re Ready for Anything with the Britax B-Ready Stroller

{I was so excited to partner with Britax for this post! I received a sample of the B-Ready stroller to use and test in order to provide my honest feedback and share my thoughts with you.}

When there are six years between your second and third babies, there are no baby items left in the house to pass down. We got rid of all that back when we hadn’t had any babies for five years and assumed we were all done.

When you’ve been a mom for almost a decade and that third baby comes along, you have a more laid back approach to collecting all the baby items you literally just sold at a yard sale the year before.

Your sweet new baby ends up with a collection of pre-loved car seats, cribs, and clothes. And you’re thrilled because baby is dressed, strapped in, and doesn’t really sleep anyway.

So when Britax gave Abby the chance to ride in style in her very own brand new stroller? I was thrilled! And so was Abby!britax-post-1

Then when the 2017 B-Ready stroller arrived and I started reading about all the features? I was almost jealous. This thing is a nicer ride than any car I’ve ever owned.

Thanks to a fun meet-up hosted by Britax, Atlanta Area Moms Blog, and Squash Blossom Kitchens, we got all the details for the bells and whistles. Plus, delicious snacks and adult conversation.

With tons of cool accessories and twelve different seating options, you are literally ready for anything life might throw at you. This could very well be the last stroller you will need to buy.

With a few pops and clicks, you can face your child forward or backward. Have two kiddos with you? A second seat attachment is super easy to slide on and you’re ready to go. Baby fall asleep in the car seat? Just pop off the seat and pop on the carrier.

Being a sleep-deprived and slightly clumsy gal, I was very impressed with the safety features. The five-point harness is super secure. Abby can try as hard as she wants, but she won’t be able to unlatch herself. And that’s a definite win for mom.

With our previous strollers, the basket has been a pain to access. So I tend to hang my diaper bag on the handle, which is a big no-no. Because we take five years’ worth of stuff with us to go to Kroger for ten minutes, the diaper bag is super heavy and can make the stroller tip over. Britax is looking out for moms like me and has made the stroller basket totally roomy and easily accessible. No more stroller tipping!

In my permanently exhausted state, I have been known to press the brake for one side of the stroller and forget the other side which sends the baby in a spin. Again. Britax cares for the absent-minded mamas. The B-Ready stroller has a one-step brake with green/red indicator to make it clear whether it is set or not. Abby sends her gratitude and love.britax-post-4

Besides being reassuringly safe and totally convenient for seating arrangements, Britax has used the B-Ready stroller to just show off a little bit with all the unnecessary awesomeness.

The handle has several positions to adjust to your comfort level.

The seat reclines almost flat for maximum napping potential. You know. If your baby sleeps. britax-post-3

The canopy is huge and can keep your child from permanently squinting in the hot Southern sun.britax-post-2

The foam-filled rubber tires and suspension system make for a ridiculously smooth ride.

Even the foot rest has several adjustable positions to make sure baby is as comfortable as possible.britax-post-5

If you’re in the market for a stroller, I definitely recommend you check out the B-Ready. It might just be the last stroller you’ll ever need to buy!
