LMNOP Kid’s Consignment Sale

This evening I sat down and began to think through my Fall. I emailed a “calendar of events” to my mom and Dominic so we’d all be on the same page about the craziness that’s coming up. Because it’s busy ya’ll. I’m gonna have to take it one day at a time, that’s for sure. […]

Picnic Perfect

Last night I packed up a picnic and we made our way downtown for music in the park. Our church was hosting a benefit concert to support the employees of a restaurant that had recently burned down since they’ve been displaced from their livelihood. Great idea, huh? With crisp, warm air blowing we settled next […]

It’s That Time Of Year

Yep – it’s that time of the year – consignment season! I’m already itching for the sales that I’ll find – treasures for Jemma’s October birthday, school clothes and the inevitable 1/2 box of unused nursing pads that help keep my Target bill lower. Friends, you need to mark these dates – September 20-22 – […]

He’s a Mover and a Shaker

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Huggies, but all my opinions are my own. #HuggiesSlipOn @pmedia http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO  Max, he’s a mover and a shaker.

Thus, we documented 3 days of Jelly Bean […]

Hearty Italian Pasta Salad

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pompeian Olive Oil. We be getting our grill on around here!  Lordy, lordy … summer isn’t one of my favorite seasons (Fall girl represent!), but since it brings grilling to the forefront of our menu planning, I allow it to come around once a […]

The Unplanned Homebirth

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Glaceau fruitwater®. Less than a month until my sweet boy’s first birthday. Sigh. In honor of the upcoming celebration I thought it would be fun to share a little vlog about the sparkling truth of his arrival. Wondering what a sparkling truth is? Well, […]

Two in Tugaboos

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rite Aid Tugaboos diapers.  Two in diapers is quite the adventure. I know a few mamas out there who have even experienced three in diapers and I literally have no idea how they do it. As is, I change at least 15 diapers every […]

Leak Free Is the Way To Be

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Parent’s Choice Overnight Baby Diapers. This month I embarked upon my 31st month of diapering. It’s been a wild ride filled with fluffy bums, messes, research, lots of laundry and a hefty dose of trial and error. Diapering children definitely has a learning curve […]

Someday Hair

I’m sure you’ve noticed, but I did it! I got a fresh new look and am oh so happy with how light and fabulous it is. Plus, taking the short{er} hair plunge seemed worthwhile when I had a good 12 inches to send off to Locks of Love. Have long hair yourself? Have you thought […]
