Luv & Emma's Super Absorbent Dry Pets!

One of the challenges we face with our temperamental weather is keeping Zeus warm and dry, weather it be from coming inside from doing his business or right after his weekly bath. For the past year that he has been apart of our family we have been using our bath towels to dry him and they would as most end up hanging around the house or on the floor EVERYWHERE! 
Luv & Emma's Super Absorbent Microfiber Towel has a stretchable opening making it convenient to hang on any door knob.

 I was given the opportunity to test and review this amazing super absorbent microfiber towel. 
Luv & Emma's Dry Pets Plus Super Absorbent Microfiber Towel has a patented integrated stretchable opening that conveniently adjusts to hang on virtually any door handle or elsewhere! NO more wet towels haphazardly thrown on the floor!

It is really soft and I love the paw prints on it. (Can be used on all pets) I have used it several times and have since washed and dried it. It dries super fast in no time at all. Not like a regular bath towel.
 Zeus absolutely loves this towel! We now only use Luv & Emma's dry pets towel and will continue recommending them to everyone with furbabies! Click here to purchase your very own.They are also sewn in the U.S.A and come in recyclable packaging. Also, they are very affordable too! You will NOT be disappointed.

My Top 5 Reasons I Love Being A Stay At Home Mom (SAHM)

As I look at the title of this article I can't help but laugh because this was something I never thought I would want to do... ever. So I thought.After being at home with my two kids I can't imagine doing anything else. With that being said, here are my top 5 reasons I now love about being a Stay At Home Mom (SAHM).


Now that I am a Stay At Home Mom I get the comfort of planning out my days as I see fit. Make changes were they are needed and not have anything interfering (like a retail sales JOB). My husband and I no longer have the issue of me not being able to get off work, in the event that he needs to stay at work longer or go into work earlier. There is no need to worry about a babysitter or having to leave work in the event of an emergency. I don't have to choose between work and family. Being a SAHM gives me back a big chunk of my life that I hadn't even realized I'd lost.


 When I was working outside of the home, I was usually gone before the kids woke up, and got back home just in time to feed them dinner and put them to bed. Now, when my kids wake up in the morning, I'm there. When they go to sleep at night, I'm there. When they need to go to the doctor, I take them. When they get sick  I have to stay up all night nursing them back to health, I don't have to worry about calling out sick myself. I don't have to stress out about my boss not understanding (or caring) that I need time off to take care of my kids. I don't have to worry about not being able to be there for my kids because I'm spending  hours at work on things that I don't get enough credit for. Being a SAHM allows me to cherish the precious moments that I see and build with my children on a daily basis.


 First time they told me "I luv you" was one of the most memorable days of my life, right along with their first time crawling to walking. I love it when they walk up to me and say "Mom you know what?" "I love you!" There are so many memories and experiences I have been able to witness and there will be many more. I’m grateful that I get to be there to enjoy, encourage, and remember (or if I’m lucky snap a photo of) all of their precious ‘firsts’.

David and I are NOT a model couple. We have our ups and downs as most people in any relationship do. We work really hard to have a strong relationship and we do love each other.

That said, I have noticed that becoming a SAHM has helped our relationship in many regards. I’m not exactly sure why this is. I think some of it has to do with him feeling comfortable that our kids are home and well taken care of.  I think he likes the system we have. He also appreciates being the bread winner…
There are probably many other reasons too. Maybe I’ll ask him and write a post on it later.


Spending all  waking hours together seven days a week, we know each other really well. I  know what to do when they are in one of their many moods. I understand what certain looks, body language, and tone of voice mean. They know I’ll be there for them too. I love when my son comes looking for me when I am not in a certain room of the house and he always knows where to look first. I love that my daughter likes to help me around the house and just wants to be with me. The stability of our relationship and love, and time we spend together are completely priceless to me.
Being a SAHM mom is often very tough and every day doesn’t always include these amazing moments, the rewards and the things I love about it far outweigh the negatives.These reasons plus some more not mentioned are what keep me dedicated and ready for a new day as a Stay At Home Mom.

Are you a Stay At Home Mom?
What are some of your reasons as to why you LOVE it?

Nupro Gold All Natural Dog Supplement

Being a pet owner and considering my boy Zeus as one of the family. (Naturally) I want to feed him the best of the best. Since having him he always seemed to have some skin and coat issues. After researching the web for days I ran across Nupro which was researched and developed by a doctor of nutrition, using fresh, premium quality health food ingredients. A totally holistic product, it will provide your dog with the full range of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, and essential omega fatty acids. All in their Natural Raw Forms, that he/she does not get from processed foods. In other words, the supplements are replaced with natural ingredients which a dog would normally have gotten in the wild. An excellent All-In-One daily supplement for all breeds and all ages - Puppies to Seniors. Nupro has no wheat, corn, fillers, grains, artificial sugars or preservatives, glutens or by-products of any kind. For Zeus he gets 1/4 a scoop every day, which I sometimes add a little water to it and it makes a gravy to give him some variety. A list of the ingredients are as follows:
Desiccated Liver - The ultimate in palatability. The fresh, natural flavor of real liver is wonderful for the finicky eater! Supplies iron and B vitamins. Just add water to make a Great Gravy that Dogs Crave!

Norwegian Kelp - A natural seaweed - a rich source of trace minerals including iodine, necessary for proper glandular function and metabolism. An excellent source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, and E. Aside from nourishing the glands, these vitamins are beneficial for maintaining overall good health and are vital to sustain the proper growth of bones, a healthy heart rate, a sound central nervous system, and the assurance that muscles stay firm and strong. Norwegian kelp grows deep in the ocean, mostly in cold waters, so it contains the purest of valuable nutrients from the ocean floor. Supports healthy skin pigmentation and coat highlights.  

Amino Acids & Enzymes - A wide array of naturally available Amino Acids and Enzymes helps the body to maintain healthy hormonal balances and to fortify a resilient Immune System. Offers support for pets with seasonal allergies.

Nutritional Yeast Cultures - Support the maintenance of healthy skin and a full, luxurious hair coat which may minimize the occurrence of excessive shedding and dry skin. Provide proteins, zinc and biotin. Best source of B vitamins. Most companies use cheaper brewers yeast which can be a combination of hops, corn, grains, wheat, etc.; all by-products from the brewery. Many animals have grain sensitivities, and brewers yeast may further aggravate an allergy condition in certain animals. With nutritional yeast cultures, grown and harvested from a veggie source, NO grains are present at all. Something to think about when reading ingredient labels.  

Flaxseed - Provides essential omega fatty acids. Most absorbable vegetable fatty acid for the canine. Rich in omega 3 fatty acids, alpha-Linolenic acid, fiber and lignans. Helps maintain healthy, shiny fur and soft skin.  
Lecithin - A rich source of choline, utilized by the body in the production of acetyl-choline, a neurotransmitter essential for normal, healthy nerve and brain function. Supports healthy liver function.  

Garlic - Awesome ingredient that does so much for the body! Garlic contains allicin, a powerful antioxidant, helpful in supporting healthy immune and cardiovascular systems.  

Calcium Citrate - Calcium is best absorbed in an acidic environment, hence calcium citrate is the best absorbed supplemental form of calcium - it does not require extra stomach acid for absorption. Intended to provide nutritive support for healthy bones, teeth and nerve function.  

Lactobacillus Acidophilus - Promotes friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract thereby encouraging efficient digestion which may reduce the occurrence of flatulence.

This is something I order on a regular to be sure he never runs out! I highly recommend all pet owners not just dogs to try this and add it to your pets diet. It can be purchased here.
