If you had told me a balance bike would make a difference when teaching my kids how to ride a bike several years, I may not have believed you. But, now? I know how much it can really help your child’s balance at a younger age to help better prepare them when it comes time to snap those training wheels off! We were introduced to firstBIKE several months ago when they sent my daughter an adorable pink bike to try for herself. She had seen her big brother learn to ride a bike and tested out his balance bike, but she was super eager...

  The BIG GAME is coming this Sunday and I know we’ll be watching with our Brady & Gronk gear on (New Englander’s still at heart even though we’re living in the Carolina’s!)

We love these fun and quirky teether’s from Little Toader and you can get your little man into the spirit with gear from Sticky Bellies & more! Make your kid a “Touchdown Kid” and do an...

As the weeks fly by, we are getting more and more ready to welcome our new little sweetie into the world! There are so many things I just totally forgot about raising a newborn, while so many things feel like I was doing just yesterday with my two oldest. I remember both of my kids had the need to be swaddled for so long and wrapping them up tight into a nice cozy blanket was a nap time and bedtime ritual. Swaddling also has its benefits : Helping infants sleep longer and reducing spontaneous arousal Helping to keep infants in the supine...

  As we anxiously await the arrival of our third sweet baby, I decided to start a new series to share with you all where I can share my tips, tricks, & favorite products you’ll want to be sure to check out. Being this is my third rodeo welcoming a little one into the world, I know what has worked for me in the past and what isn’t really necessary to dwell on in the future. I’ve also had the chance to try (and toss) several products that aren’t exactly what they seem. I’m excited to share my planning...

I was so excited to find out a few weeks ago I was chosen to host a fun and fabulous Disney Side Home Celebration sponsored by Disney Parks and BSM Media. We are HUUUGE Disney fans in this house and both littles are so thrilled to be sharing the excitement with friends! As soon as I was chosen, I was of course anxious and excited to find out what we were going to be sent to work with. I’ve taken to Pinterest already to start pinning some fun ideas and gathering thoughts on what sort of party to throw. Even though BSM and Disney...

  I remember when I was growing up, my mom would always dress me in gorgeous frilly dresses with big beautiful bows in my hair. I also remember hating them at the time, but now that I’m a mom myself; I have a newfound appreciation for adorable dresses and outfits. If there’s a day my daughter isn’t dressed up complete with a big bow in her hair, it’s likely because, my husband dressed her and not me! When I was pregnant with Lavery and found out she was in fact, a girl; I immediately knew I had to start collecting...

Drum roll please!! Things have been so crazy wrapping up school activities before Christmas break, getting ready for the holiday’s, and crazy schedules – I haven’t had a chance to announce our baby’s gender for you all yet!! Several weeks ago, we went for a 3D ultrasound at New Beginnings 3D in Gastonia, NC. I was so anxious to get a peek of our baby bean and find out if I should be buying more blue or hanging onto all of our pink! Both kids wanted a brother, our good friends had a baby boy in the spring and they...

  I don’t know about where you live, but we’ve had some chilly days here in the Carolina’s lately. While some afternoons it still gets up into the 60’s, the mornings when I head out to drop the kids off at school – my toes are COLD! Searching for a practical and fashionable boot has been something I haven’t succeeded much yet in previous years. I bought a few pair last year at Old Navy, but they barely lasted me through the season and I just haven’t found an affordable pair that gave me everything...
