Before Sweet T came along, grocery shopping was a little different. I actually took the time to stop at the kiosks, see what the attendants were cooking, sample the food, and maybe even try the recipe out for myself at home. Now that grocery shopping is a sprint to the checkout with a toddler in tow, I'm glad I took the time to discover this Publix … [Read More...]

Most women understand the importance of a good bra that fits well. During pregnancy and breastfeeding it's even more important to have quality bras to wear. After all, your breasts are now functional (besides their other use, ladies ;)) and seemingly ever-changing. My breasts like to go up a cup size overnight once I'm … [Read More...]

"Wrangling" not one but two children is going to be a new experience for me! When Sweet T was little and I needed to go outdoors to garden or hang clothes on the line I'd often just lay out a blanket or activity center mat for her depending on her age at the time. This worked fine, but she grew bored around the scooting stage … [Read More...]
The great breastfeeding debate is probably here to stay. Breast milk vs. formula, nursing in public vs. private: it seems everyone has an opinion. I can honestly say I don't care what you do when it comes to feeding your child, but my personal preference is to nurse modestly in public. A tank (or singlet) from Top Secret Maternity will help me do … [Read More...]

Sweet T and I received a one-size Bee Changed microsuede pocket diaper in Sweet' Tush Flower for the purpose of this review. If baby #2 is a boy he's just going to have a pretty diaper! I liked the pattern too much to resist. We also got to try out a 10 load sampler of Bee Clean Laundry Detergent by Redemption Soap so that's … [Read More...]
True friends are few and far between. I'm blessed to have several people in my life whom I consider true friends. I just wish they didn't all live so many miles away! Thank goodness for technology, right? Most are simply a text message or email away. I hope this collection of inspirational quotes encourages you to pick up the phone, write a letter, … [Read More...]

Pregnant or not I've always had to be careful when taking vitamins. I still remember the horrible nausea that came at age 13 when I took a multivitamin while my breakfast was warming. Big mistake! So I now know better than to take a vitamin on an empty stomach, but while I'm pregnant it goes a even further. I typically can't … [Read More...]
I've enjoyed New York Style Bagel Crisps since I was a child. I can remember mom letting choose the flavor if I went shopping with her and I always picked Roasted Garlic! Some things never change and that is still my favorite flavor of New York Style Bagel Crisp. As an adult I've discovered hummus though and how yummy it can be with a bagel crisp. … [Read More...]

In this age of early gender predictions and 4D ultrasounds, sometimes I feel like we're the only ones who aren't finding out the gender of our baby before the birth. While it may seem that way, in actuality 40% of expectant parents are on "team green" with us! Even the nickname for a surprise birth indicates gender-neutral … [Read More...]
Going on a trip to the UK can easily become rather expensive. One way to ensure that the costs remain lows is by choosing to stay in a self-catering holiday cottage. Not only do holiday cottages provide great accommodation for all the family, they offer fantastic value for money too.
When you are booking a holiday cottage you pay for use of the … [Read More...]

Life with a newborn can be rough. The sleep deprivation is what gets to me the most so I'm always open for creative ways to keep a newborn happy. Traditional swings and bouncers are great (and believe me we plan to use both!) but InGenuity presents a unique way to sooth infants ages 0-6 months: with a sway action rather than … [Read More...]

With summer in full swing and triple digits abounding, Hubs and I try to grill out at least once per week just to keep from heating up the house. Grilling for us usually consists of my marinating some meat while he's at work and him throwing the chops, steaks, hotdogs, or chicken on our gas grill when he gets home. While I'm glad he's doing the … [Read More...]
