Brilliant Sky Toys & Books {Review}

The holiday season is right around the corner!  Can you believe it?!  I like to get a jump on my holiday shopping now because I do not love shopping  packed stores, fighting crowds, searching for toys in unorganized chaos, grumpy or stressed out store workers, trying to park and all that.  Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like people fighting each other over the “must have” toy for the year.  … [Read more...]

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness: My Story {Megan}

I was so naïve.  I was so unaware of how common miscarriage was.  I knew a few people that had miscarried and I was sad for them, but I couldn’t imagine what that loss was like.  I never thought it would happen to me.  1 in 4 women miscarry, and in between Hayden and Halli I would be the 1.  I have been running the idea of sharing my story for months.  What to share, what to leave out?  Do I … [Read more...]

Honey Lime Enchiladas #Recipe

I am addicted to reading food blogs.  I love them.  I love finding great food blogs that always have tried and true recipes.  Recipes that don't require weird ingredients, that are always delicious, and can please my 4 year old.  Is that too much to ask?  Mels Kitchen Cafe is one of my favorites.  I use multiple of her recipes in our weekly dinner rotations.  One of my family's favorite meals is … [Read more...]

PBS KIDS Peg + Cat premieres October 7!!

Is PBS KIDS as popular with your kiddos like it is mine?  Hayden loves all the different shows on PBS KIDS.  Hayden is 4 and I am constantly trying to help find him engaging preschool learning opportunities.  I really love and appreciate that PBS KIDS always offers quality programing for Hayden to watch when he earns his "screen time."    PBS KIDS has done it again with the new show Peg + Cat, … [Read more...]

Ingenuity Washable Playard in Whimsical Wonders {Review}

There are a few things that were a "must have" on my baby registry list.  Bottles, blankets, and of course lots of tiny clothes.  Another one of my "must have's" was a playard.  Playards are awesome because they can be used from day one with your sweet baby as a bassinet and then it will continue to grow with them.  Ingenuity washable playard in whimsical wonders has a lot of great features. I … [Read more...]

Teaching My Kids to Be Safe: Strangers

Fall is now in full swing.  I think everyone has shaken off summer and is back in a regular routine, adding pumpkin to baked goods, and getting kids to and from school.  Hayden is 4 and will be in Kindergarten next school year.  We are also just starting to put him in more extracurricular activities like soccer, gymnastics, etc.  He is getting older and more independent.  He will spend more and … [Read more...]

Jeep® Adventure Jogger Stroller {Review and #Giveaway}

At the end of this month it will be 6 months that I had my baby.  It blows my mind Halli is half way to 1 year. I had a pretty healthy pregnancy.  I gained a healthy amount of weight, and tried to eat well.  I have been able to lose my pregnancy weight from Halli, and I can button my pre-pregnancy jeans! Whoop!  BUT, I still have my "mommy tummy."  You know what I'm talking about...especially you … [Read more...]

Taggies Swing ‘N Go Portable Swing Review

Moms are amazing at multitasking.   Not to totally brag, but now that I have a 4 year old and a 5 month old I am becoming quite the multitasking professional.  I can change a diaper while singing the ABC's to keep Halli from immediately rolling over.  I can play Thomas the trains with Hayden and peek-a-boo with Halli.  And I can vacuum and bounce or soothe Halli like a boss! Not to mention it is a … [Read more...]

Tex Mex Cornbread Casserole {#Giveaway} #CountryCrockCasserole

My Facebook and Instagram are flooded with pictures of cute kiddos with fresh haircuts, backpacks, and new clothes.  Most of you are in full back to school mode.  I am grateful that I have one more year with Hayden at home before he starts Kindergarten.  Even without a kiddo actually in school, this time of year brings the feeling to get back into a routine and schedule.  To shake the sand out of … [Read more...]
