Diaper Bag Essentials

I don’t know why, but I always wonder what other moms carry in their diaper bag. Maybe they found this really genius product or really awesome mom hack and I just want to steal it. I recently went to some of my most trusted mom friends (AKA all of you) and asked what items you keep in your diaper bag at all times. I have come up with a pretty extensive list that will prepare you for any situation. First…

First Birthday Gift Guide

Hazel just celebrated her first birthday (read about it here) and leading up to her party I was asked to give suggestions about gift ideas for her. Just to digress for a second, I love to ask parents and love to be asked about gift ideas. I ask because I want to make sure I am going to give something the child wants and needs instead of creating more work for the parents by having to return something they just…

My Breastfeeding Journey – The Joys and Struggles of The Past 45 Months

Last night I sat with my husband after putting my youngest to bed. She nursed to sleep. I sat at the table next to him, and with no expression told him that her nursing sessions were getting shorter and shorter and I could see the end coming near. She is 14 months, almost the same age as my other two girls when they ended their breastfeeding journey. A flood of emotions took over took me. It was hard to swallow.…

Why I want my daughter to grow up to be a princess – plus tips on throwing a #disneykids princess tea playdate

My girls just love Disney and as they get older they have really shown an interest in all things Princess. I have to admit when I asked my daughter what she wanted to be when she grew up and she said “Princess” I kind of cringed. Growing up I was never much of a girlie girl. Princesses didn’t resonate with me because I wasn’t into dresses and tiaras and maybe because, when I was younger, I didn’t really look past…

This year there are so many great styles to choose from so I put together a list of our top 10 to share with all of you. These have to be my girls favorites.

Why I take my girls with me everywhere I go and what I do to make our outings run smoothly

I see the glares. People staring as I walk with three little girls by my side. I hear the comments “oh wow” or “you have your hands full” as I talk with my four year old, grab the hand of my two year old, and hold tightly to the one year old on my hip.   They see me, at an antique flea market, with my girls. Wondering if I am crazy for venturing the long walks and Florida heat.…

A Simple Floral First Birthday Party

My third little girl is one! I can not believe it! For my older two girls I went a bit overboard and threw huge parties (read about them here). This time around we just couldn’t swing it. Although it wasn’t going to be a big bash I still wanted to make it special and this day truly was one of the most wonderful birthdays. Just a few family members at our home, a perfect setting for my sweet girl. One…

8 Things You Need To Know Before Ordering From A Meal Delivery Service

I have seen the popularity of meal delivery services increase lately and I completely understand why. Our lives are busy and we need faster and easier, especially when it comes to dinner time. To be honest I have been skeptical of these services, not really sure if it would be a fit for my family. Recently I had the opportunity to try Blue Apron and it gave me a new found appreciation of what meal delivery can really offer.   If you…

Recharge With The Grand Beauty Spa

It is so important, amidst the busy demands of life, to stop and fill your tank. Sometimes that means a quiet moment with a book, or your favorite bowl of ice cream, and sometimes that means treating yourself to something really special. I recently visited The Grand Beauty Spa. Leading up to my visit I was feeling that my patience was small and my stresses were large and so I knew it was time for me to take care of myself so I…
