I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for OshKosh B’gosh. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip and to thank me for participating.

At our local outlet mall we have OshKosh B'gosh. Parents, you know that having an OshKosh B'gosh nearby is a great plus. Not only are the … [Read more...]

This post is brought to you by Taylor Joelle Designs. With Christmas only about 7 weeks away, I was on the lookout for the perfect Christmas dress for my Princess. I love a modern, cute dress that can be worn easily to a Christmas party and to church. I found what I was looking for at Taylor Joelle Designs.

A Back to the Future T Shirt Makes a Great Gift!

back to the future

My husband is picky about his t-shirts. He doesn't like cute sayings or large pictures. If it is a surfing shirt he'll make some exemptions. When I had the chance to finally get him some new shirts at and their other t-shirt websites I knew I had to be very selective. The first one I choose was this Hill Valley Back to the Future shirt from their site. It is not overtly Back to the Future. It isn't "cutesy" but looks like an actual tourist shirt you'd get if … [Read more...]

For Father’s Day: Babe Magnet Tie


Thank you Teething Bling for sponsoring today's giveaway. Biting baby = terrified family. We need innovative teething products that can "trick" him into thinking he's biting something he isn't supposed to be biting. (Saying no does not seem to work - no matter how firm I say it!) So daddy wears ties and my Little Man loves biting clothing (and skin, toys, wood, sticks, spoons, nipples, and so much more...) so when I had the chance to review the BABE MAGNET™ Tie from Teething Bling (a Smart … [Read more...]

Maternity Cardigan Makes a Great Nursing Cover!

maternity cardigan

Thank you Everly Grey for sponsoring today's post.   Since I nurse my baby daily, I am always on the lookout for a stylish and practical nursing cover. I have used aprons, blankets, large scarves, and more to cover up during nursing. I love the idea of using a maternity cardigan for nursing because you can purchase it while pregnant. Instead of using it only during the pregnancy, you can continue using it for nursing. Genius idea! I love when clothing can have two different uses. … [Read more...]

CafePress Review and Giveaway

cafe press

Thank you CafePress for sponsoring today's post. Before I even had this chance to review CafePress, I already loved them. I recently ordered gifts on CafePress for family members through Amazon and was very pleased not only with the selection but also with the shipping and quality. There is so much variety on CafePress. You could easily look at the site for hours and have a cart load of items. I can honestly say it was difficult for me to narrow down my selection of items to … [Read more...]
