#UltraHug and my Hospice Nomination


It is no secret that our family has been through too many illnesses ending in a stay in hospice and the release of our loved ones spirits into the heavens.  We do it so much that I think I am pretty numb to the whole situation.  Huggies contacted me and asked us to share our #UltraHug selfies and nominate a community that we feel deserves a $2000 grant.  I am choosing Halcyon Hospice here in Denver as they have been our rock through some of the toughest losses we could ever imagine.



I remember the first loss very clearly and it still touches me, but since then I have experienced the loss of a close loved one more times than one could even imagine.   In those times we hug, we love and we lean on our family to get us through.  Hospice is something that no family wants to have but all families appreciate.  They are there to prep the family and most importantly give care to the patient with respect and dignity.  Most of the time we have done a home hospice situation where the nurses visit and check in but meds and main medical care are taken care of by the family.  Halcyon was my Mother-in-laws amazing care team and in the 3 months she was with them they helped her cope with saying goodbye but still allowed her the freedom to live her life.  They were there for her passing and were crying along with us.  They were at her funeral services and were just the best ever. I truly hope that they win this amazing $2000.00 gift as they give so much of themselves.

I was honored to be asked to nominate a community and share this awesome cause with my readers. Although I hope that my cause gets chosen, I also would love for my readers to submit a community of their choice to help bring awareness to other communities out there needing support!  If you want to nominate a community CLICK HERE to learn how!

Huggies has been gracious in offering up these grants so I thought I would share with you a little about our favorite brand of diapers.




These Huggies Snug & Dry Ultra Diapers offer long-lasting leakage protection you can count on, so you can focus on all of your baby’s daily adventures. The range of sizes fit babies from newborn to 35 lbs. Only Huggies Snug & Dry Ultra Diapers have a new, unique quilted liner to lock away wetness better.

They have a conforming, gap-free fit to keep your active baby dry throughout the day The trusted Leak Lock® System has quick-absorbing layers for up to 12 hours of protection.

I just bought these yesterday and am loving the new designs in addition the leak lock system is great for our little toddler.  She is attempting to potty train herself I think and has been removing and then putting back on her diaper and these were great at catching those "leaks" that the peanut has created. I also particularly like the waistband as it seems to have some elastic give which makes pulling her diaper down without taking off a bit easier when she wants to try the potty!




They were easy to locate and a great value at Wal*Mart!  Most stores charge $9.00 for a bag of diapers but I snagged these Huggies for $7.97 and had a $2.00 off coupon from my local coupon inserts!  BOOM!  Got to love those Wal*Mart Rollbacks!
