Back-To-School Health Tips and a Back-To-School Giveaway for You!

Is your household back to school yet? Mine will be later this week! This summer flew by–the fastest on record it feels–and we are already gearing up for the fall! This period of transition can be hard in many ways, so I want you to remember to give yourselves that permission to transition, but sometimes we just need a little organization and inspiration. I’m sharing 9 tips for how you and your family can get (or stay!) into a healthy routine for this year over at The Better Mom!

Your Back-To-School Body: Healthy tips for you and your family! : and


And now for the giveaway! (I know I had one 2 weeks ago, but I can’t help it when good things come my way and I get to share them with you!) If you follow me on instagram or Facebook, you’ve seen me reference the market bag that I absolutely adore! I use it as a purse while I’m running errands and need to fit things like snacks and coupons in them! I got this bag (below) from a local company called Diengie Designs. You can read more about them here, but this sister and mama trio have bigger dreams than making bags! They desire to build a community center/headquarters so that it may reach single moms and their kids by providing jobs with on-site daycare, good wages, a cafeteria for lunches with their children and more! Don’t you love it!?

diengie designs Market Bag (GIVEAWAY!) :

I use it when shopping at our local Farmer’s Market every Saturday!

I figured since it is back-to-school time, most of your money is going to supplies and clothing for everyone BUT you, so I wanted one person to win a little something for themselves! This darling cell phone pouch and key loop will be one lucky person’s gift! They made it just for our giveaway!

  2. Amy B. says

    It’s hard to pick just one thing~I love everything about fall!! The crispness, the leaves changing color, apple picking, pumpkin spice lattes, watching my boys play soccer…… :)

  3. says

    Fall is just the best season ever. I love the cool air, the changing leaves, warm sweaters and jeans, apple and pumpkin desserts…and this year in November we will be adding a new little one to our family, so that’s another thing to love about fall! :)

  4. Beth says

    Whoops! Didn’t see it was suppose to be about fall!
    I love the cooler, sweater weather. (Wait, is it fall already?)

  5. Cathy says

    Favorite thing about fall is that it finally starts to cool down, at least in October. No more 100 degree weather, yippee!

  6. Michelle says

    I love decorating for fall and all the yummy apple and pumpkin inspired recipes. Cozy clothes and the changing leaves. Always been one of my favorite times of the year.

  7. Ashley G says

    My Favorite thing about fall is the cooler temps and getting to sit on my porch swing with a cup of coffee and a book while my daughter plays in the yard!

  8. Tabbetha says

    My favorite thing about fall is the cooler weather, the beautiful colors, and the coziness inside our house as we settle into a routine from the craziness of summer.

  9. Rachelle says

    I love fall because it is another fresh start. We homeschool, so it’s fun getting into a different routine. The kids are excited to have fun in a different way and back into a little more formal learning routine than through the summer.

  10. Malissa says

    The cooler weather, watching the aspens change here in Colorado, and of course FOOTBALL :) I love going to games at my daughters high school & watching her cheer :)

  11. Alaina says

    When we lived in VA, I loved the cooler weather and the colors of the trees. Now that we live in Fl, I still miss the cooler weather. :)

  12. Sarah says

    I’m excited for a little more structure with the fall structure and looking forward to new Bible studies and connecting with other women. Now, of course, it would be kind of fun to walk in sporting a the new clutch in the give away. :)

  13. Katie Wilmot says

    Oh fall–it’s my favorite time of year!! One thing…hard to choose but I’m going to say hoodies. :) I love the change in weather so that we can easily throw on hoodies with our shorts and flops for a little walk and be totally comfortable.

  14. says

    What a neat little bag! I love the look of it.
    My favorite thing about Fall-what’s not my favorite thing. I adore scarves and boots, everything pumpkin, the decor, the way the air smells, the festivities. It’s my favorite time of the year.

  15. Lori Turner says

    I cannot possibly pick just one thing! :) I love football, pumpkin anything, fall decorations, cool air, hayrides, sweaters, did I mention pumpkins??

  16. Melinda Elam says

    I love the change of the seasons(although it does not last very long in Texas). I love opening the windows. I love the layers of clothes and fun styles.

  17. says

    I love the fall colors, the crispness in the air, and ALL of the holidays which means for LOTS of opportunities to connect with family and friends. I’m all about the relationships!! I think my daughters, and dil would love this so am going to take a look at their website.

  18. Brittany says

    Fall is my favorite season! I love everything about it: the weather, the colors changing everywhere, fall food (PUMPKIN everything), and thanksgiving( one of my favorite holidays)!! ♥♥♥ :)

  19. Geneva Nunez says

    Fall….oh, goodness, what is not to love??? The perfect just right weather, not too hot not too cold, the changing of the leaves, Friday Night Football at the high school, Saturday College Football and Sunday NFL Football and all the days of football in between, Halloween. I can go on and on and on. Did I mention Footbal!!!!!

  20. Megs says

    Fall! My favorite time of the year! There are so many things to love. The sound of leaves crunching underfoot. The beautiful colors of those leaves before they drift down to Earth’s floor. Fields of pumpkins waiting to be made into pie. Hayrides, corn mazes, apple picking at the orchard, fire pits and roasting marshmallows, making apple butter over an open fire outside with family. I think my absolute favorite is spending time my husband and boys outside. So much fun to be had!

  21. Caroline says

    Love love love!!! And I could really use both. Also, just prayed for you and thanked God for you and your ministry to us. You bless us! :)

  22. Caroline says

    Oh! And favorite thing about Fall? How it beckons us to linger in coffee shops, run faster to warm up, pull out the crockpot, pull on a cozy sweater… I could go on and on :)

  23. deenles4evr says

    Fall-it is sensory overload:-)
    Vibrant colors of leaves, mums and other flowers.
    Smells bonfires, hot chocolate, pumpkin and spices, apples and Carmel
    Hearing the crunch crunch of leaves as I hike with my family, the sound of birds winging their way south
    Taste fall veggies; squash kale pumpkins , apples, pumpkins
    Snuggling with hubby under a throw as we watch the kids play, sitting close at a bonfire whispering our hopes and dreams.
    Love fall

  24. hollycoty says

    My perfect answer for this question four months ago would have been pumpkin spice latte hands down. However, since I gave up sugar around Mother’s Day in order to make myself a better mamma I don’t know! I am kind of scared/excited for the fall and Christmas to come because I will be finding out for the first time ever what I really love about these seasons without food being front and center. Eek!

  25. says

    Sorry fall lovers, I’m the fall grinch.
    I love summer. I love going to the beach. I love BBQs. I love Italian ices. I love,having my boys home (even with the bickering). I love the,trees full of leaves. I love my vegetable garden… all of this fades away in the fall. Boohoooooo. :(

    The only thing I love about fall is Thanksgiving… and being a few months closer to Christmas. :)

  26. Jessica Reno says

    THAT is adorable! My favorite thing about fall is I can run again! It’s so hot here in the summer that I am not able to run like I want to.

  27. says

    My favorite thing about fall is the crispness of the air. It is so comforting and just sets me in a mood for the crunch of leaves beneath my feet and light sweaters.

  28. Melanie says

    Living in an area where there is not a big change between seasons I still choose fall as my favorite. Living in Cali I enjoy the change in the way the sun shines a certain crisp of orange on the land. Decorating my house for fall and everything pumpkin really feels peaceful and gives that feeling of “hey relax, the weather is changing.”

  29. Brooklyn W. says

    My favorite thing about fall is the smell; and the colors; and the fact that I get to wear my favorite clothes – scarves and hats and anything autumny! I also love that it’s not to hot and not to cold. 😉

  30. Maureen says

    Right now, I’m really looking forward to returning to a schedule and a rhythm when the kids go back to school

  31. Sherry H. says

    Hurry up, fall!!! Recess duty in Louisiana is TOO hot now!! 😉
    I love the smells and the start of football season, PLUS it’s the time when my students FINALLY hit a comfortable groove in the school routine!!

  32. Erin Ellis says

    My favorite thing about fall is crisp runs in the early morning. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.

  33. Robin says

    I love EVERYTHING about Fall. The beauty is my favorite… cooler weather, beautiful colorful trees, etc. These bags go PERFECTLY with fall!

  34. Ilka J. W. says

    County fairs, and apple cider!
    I’d also say “weather fit for ‘in-between-clothes'”, since they suit my body type better – but summer has been cool here, so this year, it does not really matter…

  35. Christy says

    I love lots of things about fall: the smells, the cool weather, the colors, the preparing for winter (though I do get tired of the food preservation!).

  36. Jennifer says

    Fall is my absolute favorite season, the leaves changing beautiful colors, cider mills to get warm donuts and cider, and the perfect temps!!

  37. Bethany B says

    I have a nice pair of boots that I can’t wait to wear again once fall hits Texas!
    (Boots and pants and boots and pants… 😉 )
