Chicco Echo Stroller Review and Giveaway

Chicco Echo Stroller Review and Giveaway

When I was pregnant – back when my son was in-utero and I basically had no idea what he would actually need  - I tried to put a lot of thought into what I’d want in a stroller when he came. Having never had a child before, it’s not surprising that I put emphasis on [...]

N’s Frog First Birthday

N’s Frog First Birthday

What inspired the theme of the celebration? N was a breech baby. He had himself twisted in a way that his legs were bent like a frog. For most of his first year, when he was lying down, he would have his legs bent up like a little froggie. He lovingly got the nickname “Froggie” [...]

Tonka Trucks – Classic, Solid and FUN! And a Giveaway!

Eighteen years ago on my baby brother John’s 2nd birthday, he received a Tonka truck. It was their classic yellow steel model and over the years that followed, it got a LOT of love. I would even go so far as to say it was John’s “signature” toy. He spent most of his waking hours [...]

Makenna’s Classic Gray and Pink Nursery

How did you decide what theme or style you wanted for the room? I wanted a classic girly type feel to the room, but I also wanted it to be elegant and not to overdone and crowded. My original plan was to keep it simple and base the “theme” around colors. I wanted whites and [...]

Mother’s Day Letters: Kate’s Mama

Mother’s Day Letters: Kate’s Mama

Dear Mom, When I was five I made you a mother’s day card and mixed up my “M” and “W”, so instead of “MOM” it said “WOW.” Sure — then it was an understandable mix up — but the universe has a funny way of revealing the truth about people. “WOW” was and still is [...]

A chronic tester gets her BFP!

A chronic tester gets her BFP!

“I will not test. I will not test. I will not test.” It was 8 a.m. Monday morning… better known as “10 Days Past Ovulation.” I was what you might call a “Chronic Tester.” I’d be ashamed for anyone to know how much money I blew on pregnancy tests in the 4 months it took [...]
