Lillebaby Carrier Review

I never used a carrier with Hudson.  I bought a couple but just preferred carrying him around in my arms.  With two kids that’s just not possible.  Plus, I never realized how much easier life is with a baby carrier!  I’ve had the opportunity to try many different brands and I absolutely love the LÍLLÉbaby!  I love […]

Happy Monday friends!  Today we’re talking shapewear.  I’ve gotten several emails asking if I’ve been wearing shapewear underneath my tighter pregnancy dresses, and the answer is HECK YES!  Ladies, let’s be honest, as much as I love pregnancy and this little belly, there are parts of me jiggling where they shouldn’t be and cellulite popping […]

I’m in the home stretch now!  We’re currently scrambling with trying to get the house finished, etc.  Jason and I did this with Hudson too.  For some reason, we think the house needs to be fully decorated before she gets here.  Like the baby is gonna care if we have pictures on the walls.  It’s […]

Nuna Leaf Review anda Nuna Mixx Giveaway

I have a very serious question: how did our parents live without the AH-mazing baby gear we get to enjoy today?  I don’t know how they did it!  Especially after trying out this Nuna Leaf.  Remember those bouncers our parents used to put us in?  They were borderline risks for Shaken Baby Syndrome.  Now, though, […]
