POPSUGAR Must Have Box – March 2015

POPSUGAR Must Have Box March

Subscription boxes....I love them!  From scrapbooking, kids' products, and beauty boxes, I've tried a bunch and I have to admit I love the monthly surprise of them.  This month I was asked if I would like to try out the POPSUGAR Must Have Box and I figured why not?! Here is what POPSUGAR sent over: What was included (clockwise): Greenmarket Purveying Co. - The Archivist Diffuser Kit Wet Brush - The Squirt Bliss - Micromagic Microdermabrasion Treatment Samudra - Pink Piña Zip Pouch Knock Knock - What to Pack Pad Benefit - Cosmetics ... continue reading...

That Moment When…

The Moment When...Millie 6 Weeks

I've been having a lot of moments lately...good, bad, and just plain what?! moments. Mix a newborn, with a dash of toddler, a sprinkle of craziness you get a dose of reality of what life is like with two children (goodbye to the easy life of one which I took for granted!). So here have been moments of my life for the past six weeks: *That moment when both your newborn and toddler are screaming.  I need another set of hands! *That moment when right after you say that everything has been going perfectly, it blows up in your face.  ... continue reading...

The Baby Burrito

baby burrito

That's my toddler - the one who refuses to wear clothes when we are at home...loving on a baby burrito. I've learned to pick my battles and figure that the toddler will eventually decide she wants to wear clothes...or maybe she'll be the child that decides to strip off her clothes when she goes to preschool with no shame.  That would be my luck and I can't wait for that phone call from the teacher. Anyway, back to my baby burrito.  We've learned over the past three days that swaddling is something that Millie loves.  It's been a life ... continue reading...

Get Your Smell On

#JohnsonsPartners #SoMuchMore

I’ve used baby products by JOHNSON’S® to care for my little one as a part of a sponsored post for Socialstars.  As always, my opinions are 100% my own. #johnsonspartners #SoMuchMore Yep, you read the title of this post correctly...get your smell on! Smell is your number one sense linked to memory...and honestly there are scents that I can get a whiff of now and remember a moment from all the way back in my childhood.  It's pretty crazy. For example:  as soon as I get back to Maryland and can smell the salty air, I know immediately I am ... continue reading...

They See Me Strollin’ {RECARO Giveaway}

RECARO Performance Denali Performance Coupe Travel System - Review and Giveaway

They see me strollin'... And I must say, "I'm lovin' it!" Hmm...not only did I just use a song reference, I used a massive fast food chain's slogan. But back to the stroller and car seat system...we have been in love with RECARO car seats ever since we got one for Mabel when she was able to transition out of her infant seat (so much so that we bought one for each of our cars) and RECARO was kind enough to send over their new Performance Denali Travel System for us to try out. The Performance Denali Travel System includes both the ... continue reading...

Momma Brain

Sasha Mann

I'm a Sisterhood of Motherhood Partner but as always my thoughts are 100% my own. Today I'm talking about what I like to call 'momma brain'...which is pretty much losing my mind on a daily basis now that Millie is here.  Now, I'm not talking about it in a crazy way; more so just forgetting every.single.thing I could possibly forget.  I'm sure a bunch of you know what I'm talking about... Where did I put my phone? I swear I just put a burp cloth over there. Did I buy ground beef for the dinner recipe I'm making tonight? When did I last ... continue reading...

SUDS…Where Was This Three Years Ago?

Boon SUDS Bottle Washer Review - awesome for bottles, any narrow cups and wine glasses too! ;)

After finding out about Boon's SUDS Bottle Washer last week (which they graciously sent over for me to review), my first thought was 'Where the heck was this thing three years ago when I was overwhelmed with bottles that needed to be washed for Mabel?!' If you use bottles, sippy cups, or any narrow drinking cup for your little one, I don't even have to describe what a pain they are to clean since you can't get your hand down into them while washing.  You have to use a long handled brush (even those don't do that great of a job) or you're ... continue reading...

Newborn and Momma Must Haves

Newborn and Mom Must Haves - The perfect list of items to help make it through the first month with an infant (items for both mommy and baby).

The past few weeks have been a tad crazy...but I wanted to share a few of the things have helped to make things not as crazy as they could have been, lol! So sit back...and get ready for me to blab about some baby and mommy items that I love: Babysoy Kimono Gowns -  I loved baby gowns when Mabel was an infant...they provided easy access for diaper changes.  These gowns are my favorite due to the snaps down the side, which allows you to put them on your little one easier than the gowns you have to put over your infant's head...hey, I ... continue reading...

Millie’s First Month

Millie's First Month

Millie is one month old. This past month has passed at high speed...and I knew it would. Being that Millie is our last baby, I've been trying to soak in every.single.second of her being so little (in between my bouts of sleepless zombie-mom syndrome, lol). So what has happened over the past month with Millie?  Here's the rundown: Millie was born on February 7th in the water (birth story is coming soon!). She was pretty jaundiced right after birth and had to spend a few nights on a Bilibed. She's been breastfed exclusively.  ... continue reading...

Mabel Hits The Road

hello kitty karaoke car

We felt a tad guilty this year about Mabel's birthday...she had been a week into having a brand new sister when the 14th rolled around and her big day didn't quite revolve around her as much as I had wanted it to. So no Pinterest worthy, over the top birthday.  She got a Mickey Mouse birthday cake, some fun Disney gifts from her Grandmother, and a momma who was overly emotional due to the crazy baby hormones.  Sorry Mabel.  A week later, after finally getting out of the house, we got Mabel a gift that we knew she'd really enjoy: a ... continue reading...
