a box!

Well if this just isn't the cat's meow. Stacey Griffin, a super-mom from New Orleans has a pretty unique idea for an environmentally friendly quick drink. a box! We especially love Aqua2Go because of the convenience it provides and its founder's commitment to making a difference in our environment. It even fits perfectly in our new Dwink box holder!

Stacey, Aqua2Go's founder, is a business owner in New Orleans and lost everything during Hurricane Katrina. She was one of the fortunate ones though and did not lose her house. Since then, she has rebuilt her business as well as starting her new boxed water endeavor. Aqua2Go is purified by reverse osmosis purification and has a 5-year shelf life. Its packaging is aseptic which means it is a renewable resource (74% of the package is made from paper). Read more about the Aqua2Go packaging HERE.

Aqua2Go is available through as well as other merchants listed at and retails between $2.19 to $2.89 per pack. Much to our excitement, Aqua2Go will be on TARGET shelves this Fall! Yahoo! Target is our 2nd home. :)

Stacey and her Aqua2Go team make it fairly easy for you to approach your local grocer, school, health club, etc. where you want to see Aqua2Go stocked on their shelves. Just print out THIS form and present it to the person(s) in charge of purchasing at said locations. You'd better believe I'm joining Stacey's street team!

Look, even Ellen DeGeneres is a part of the street team!

Aqua2Go is refreshing and easy to tote around on whatever journey you might be taking. This product most definitely gets our seal of approval!

Baby want a Dwink?

Ok, I'll be honest with you here. We do try to keep the "baby talk" to a minimum around our house but nothing could be cuter than when my baby takes a "dwink" using her Dwink.

This unique mom invention was thought up after Dwink founder, Yvonne Huang did numerous testing on other drink holders and they couldn't live up to her standards. If she still had to say, "Don't squeeze!" to her kids then they just weren't good enough.

Dwink is made in the U.S.A and known as the universal drink box holder by many. You'll find that most drink boxes fit into its handy shape.

Hailey and Noel are drinking Aqua2Go...learn more about that fabulous invention HERE.

This unique product has even been featured in Real Simple, check it out (click on image to enlarge)!

You can pick up one or several Dwink box holders HERE for only $4.99. That's a STEAL ladies and gents! We'd also like to give you a chance to...

Adiri Nursers

The dilemma: You have a freezer full of pumped breast milk and you're ready for your first night out on the town since your baby's been in your life. You've waited the recommended 4 weeks before you start testing out bottles with your baby, and you're ready to give the bottle a try before the babysitter arrives. However, you just got done reading an article about how BPA (Bisphenol A) has been detected in every. single. bottle. you received for a shower gift. What can you do? Stock up on Adiri nursers!

The Adiri Natural Nurser Ultimate Bottle is 100% polycarbonate-free and bisphenol-A free, and retains the features babies and parents love in the Breastbottle® Nurser, as well as offers the latest high quality materials, a graceful design, and the new Fill, Twist and Feed™ system, engineered so that a parent or caregiver can quickly prepare a bottle, even with a hungry infant under one arm.

Finally, there's a bottle we can feel good about using. It's got the shape & feel of the "real" thing, has a slow-flow nipple, so your baby has to work hard to get milk, mimicking breastfeeding, and it's completely free of plastics that have been known to leach into milk and formula from other clear plastic bottles. I can't wait to try these out with my new baby! I'll be sure to update after the baby's born...once we've firmly established nursing. :)
