From an Engagement Ring to an Uppa Baby

This was us 3 years ago … May 18, 2007 Approximately 1 hour before Dominic proposed to me near the Portland waterfront. The day I officially became the luckiest girl in the world! I was 20, he was turning 21 the next week. Neither of us had jobs. I had just finished by Bachelors and […]

Book Mountain

I have a plethora of reading to accomplish before baby arrives … good thing I learned how to skim and find the real important stuff in college! The Girlfriend’s Guide to Pregnancy by Vicki Iovine – in progress Gentle Birth Choices by Barbara Harper, R.N. – DONE! The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding by La Leche […]


Mama Must Haves: Baby Gowns

Pregnancy Projects

I’ve had a number of projects in the works for many, many months. I always blame their lack of completeness on the season of the year (I’ll get started on that this summer), work (once I get through the busy time), or laziness (I don’t care about projects … I would rather watch all six […]


Mama Must Haves: California Baby Products

My skin has been crazy itchy throughout pregnancy … legs, back, arms, hands, stomach … you name it, I itch it. So, when Mama Kimberly recommended skincare for baby’s sensitive skin, I jumped on it. It’s officially on my Target registry and I’m looking forward to giving it a try (for baby and maybe even […]
