National Geographic Kids 2014 Almanac {Review & Giveaway 2 Winners!) Plus, Kindle Giveaway!

I have talked about my super cute little man a little bit before.  He is insanely handsome, loves jokes, creative, super sweet and really, really smart!  The kid is only 4 ½ and is already starting to read and spell.  He loves reading and loves facts.  The other day in the car I was speechless when he pointed out a bird and said “hey mom is that a peregrine falcon?

The Zen Swaddle for Baby {Review & Giveaway}

I was so impressed with the Zen Swaddle™ by Nested Bean. It is designed to give your baby the sensation that they are being held.  The blanket is lightly weighted in three spots.  One spot is a cute little bird on the top where their chest is and two spots on the sides.  The lightly weighted areas are to give the feeling where your hands would be when you are snuggling your sweet baby.  It is also … [Read more...]

Farberware 3-Piece Open Skillet Set {Review & Giveaway}

I love to cook and bake.  There is something so therapeutic about trying out a new recipe, and tasting as you go along; adding a little of this and that to eventually have a delicious end result.

I thought I was so ready and prepared before having my second baby.  Since my son is almost 4 and a half I knew I would be a little rusty with the baby stuff.  But, this wasn't my first baby, I totally knew what I was doing and it was all going to be so much easier.  Uhh... ya, WRONG!  wrong, wrong, I couldn't have been more wrong.  My daughter is already so much different than my son.  They have … [Read more...]

Birth Stories: {Megan and Halli} March 28, 2013

Hey y'all! You met me a few weeks ago, and I was so touched by how welcoming you all were and all of your sweet comments.  I feel like I have kind of fallen off the face of the earth and been in baby heaven with this precious little girl. The day you met me is the same day I had my beautiful daughter.  She is 4 weeks old now, and I can't believe it.  Just like my pregnancy, time has flown by!  … [Read more...]
