Tis’ the season! The lists have been set for a while now and the shopping is in full swing in our house.. we’re gearing up for our little babe’s first Christmas and as a family of five! With one more kiddo in the mix means an even longer Christmas list, so I’m relying on sweet deals from BJ’s Wholesale Club to help me check my items off my list.     BJ’s Top 10 Toys is sure to contain at least one thing on your kids’ lists this year. Our little lady has been watching the Olaf commercial...

  It’s so easy to get sucked into the madness during the holiday season. Sales, doorbusters, buy one get one free; falling into the trap of buying too much while forgetting the whole gift of the season is to spread love and joy to the people you love. Especially when you have young kids, it’s easy to forget why we celebrate Christmas in the first place. Every year I try to instill fun new traditions and activities to share why we celebrate Christmas with my kids. This year, I found this adorable itty bittys Nativity...

    Several weeks back, I had the opportunity attend another fabulous Mom Matters luncheon with Charlotte Parent about balancing work, family, and life.  You might remember the topic from a few moths ago and all of the important take away’s about being a media savvy parent, so I was anxious to hear Carson Tate & Maureen Carlomagno talk about balancing it all. Being a mom of three kids, balancing each of their schedules and needs along with my own and work with this blog can sometimes make my life rather hectic an...

Getting back into the grind for...

Breastfeeding my third baby now has come with a lot of lessons learned over mistakes I made or things I didn’t know from the first time around. I remember not having the faintest clue about things like a hands free pumping bra, or essential nursing products I would later come to think of as a necessity. One thing I have come to be rather picky about though is a good and comfortable nursing bra. How many times have you tried a nursing bra that ended up being so uncomfortable, stretched out, didn’t give you enough support, you...

Our summer days have been a little different than the usual poolside lounging from morning ’til night, long vacations on the beach, and cruising from one playdate to the next like it has been in the past. Summer with a newborn is a little bit different and before I leave my house even for just a 15 minute grocery run, I have to be sure I’m loaded and ready for any possible blow out diaper, throw up incident, or meltdown at any moment. I thought it would be fun to give you a glimpse into my perfectly prepared diaper bag! Don’t...

Going into it, I had no clue what to expect, but I knew I could stand to learn a few pointers. Even though my kids aren’t in that pre-teen stage...

  These final weeks prepping to bring home a new baby are exhausting, stressful, and busy; yet exciting all at the same time! I still can’t believe I’m getting ready to welcome a second daughter into the world, and all things pink and frilly are not any less fun to stock up on than they were the first time around! I’m so excited to be packing up cute little dresses, headbands, and bows in her diaper bag and even more exciting to accessorize in style with a few of my favorites from Itzy Ritzy!   I am in LOVE...

Now that we’re in the final stretch of this pregnancy and I’m really getting ready to introduce our sweet baby girl to the world, I’m starting to have those feelings of guilt I had when I was pregnant with Lavery. I remember the last few nights before she was born staying up crying, because I felt so horrible for our only child, my sweet little man to have some of the attention taken away from him. Everyone told me it was normal to feel and it would go away and they would grow up to be great friends, and while all that...
