Yogabed™ – The Luxury Foam Mattress

Yogabed 1

A big thanks to Yogabed for sponsoring todays post. As always all opinions are our own.  Jon and I have been married for going on 7 years and have been together for 12.5 years. In the 7.5 years we've lived together we have never ever had a brand new mattress. The first few years of our marriage we slept on Jon's mattress from high school. Then a family friend was selling the mattress they bought just a few month's prior so we bought it (and upgraded to a king size bed). So when Yogabed … [Read more...]

15 Newborn Essentials

15 Newborn Essentials

Being a new parent is tough enough. It can be overwhelming to sift through all the baby products you really need. I'm sharing our top 15 Newborn Essentials! I started writing this post last year when Ryder was only a month old. Now that he is almost a year old I feel like I'm so much more knowledgeable than when I was a new mom to a 1-month old. You will receive so many gifts and most you will use and some you won't use. I wanted to share what we felt was absolutely essential for … [Read more...]

The Ultimate Wedding Registry Go-To Guide For Every Couple

Wedding Registry go-to guide For Every Couple #TargetWedding

Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target. All opinions are my own. It's hard to believe that next month will mark 8 years since Jon proposed to me on the island of St. Thomas. Shortly after we were engaged we began to create a wedding registry. We had to quickly put together a registry because my inlays graciously threw us an engagement party. We both lived at home and were planning on moving in together just before we got married. We had nothing to furnish our first … [Read more...]

Valentine’s Day 2015

baby cupid photo

Last week, just a few days before Valentine's Day I decided to take Ryder to go get Valentine's Day pictures. I really really wanted a baby cupid photo of him. Jon thought I was crazy, but it's what I wanted. Ryder will only be little like this once in his life and I was not going to miss out on the opportunity to get the photo I wanted. So I took him over to Picture People at our local mall, after our Circle Time Valentine's Day party. I only had one photo in mind and I was set that I was only … [Read more...]

You’re My Main Squeeze – Baby/Toddler Valentine

you're my main squeeze 9

I'm sharing a free printable Valentine for the tots in your life that love to eat squeeze pouches! Print off the "You're My Main Squeeze" Valentine card. We are attending our first Valentine's party tomorrow. It's with the mother's group that I go to every Thursday with Ryder. It's called Mommy and Me Circle Time. It's a free "music" class for all babies 0-18 months at a local church. You don't have to be a member of the church (I'm not) to go either. I learned about it through my weekly … [Read more...]

My Heart Beats For You – Classroom Valentine Card

My Heart Beats For You Valentine Card

I'm so excited to share my first ever classroom-style Valentine's Day card with you guys! I got the idea for this Valentine when I was browsing the aisles at my local grocery store. I stumbled across Reese's Hearts and my mind ran with it. This took me one too many nap times to complete. Thank you teething and a fussy baby who only wants to nap 20-30 minutes at a clip. Also, never did I realize that when we bought our home that my craft room being right next to a future nursery would not be a … [Read more...]

DIY “Hello My Name Is” Shirt

Hello My Name Is Onesies

I made this "Hello my name is" shirt almost a year ago. Hard to believe. Since then, I've been making them as a gifts and I've made a few larger sizes for my son since I love the shirt so so much. Everyone was predicting I was going to have a big baby. Little did they know or I know that I actually had a very small baby (6lbs 9oz). I only packed 2 items that were newborn size the rest were size 1-3 months. The "hello my name is" shirt happened to be a size 1-3 months. I was determined for it to … [Read more...]

Cutting Butcher Block for an Undermount Sink

Cutting Butcher Block for an Undermount Sink

One of my goals for 2015 is to finish sharing our kitchen that we re-did in 2013! It's been over a year and a half since we revamped our kitchen. As most of you know, our kitchen wasn't in bad shape, it just wasn't what we liked. We kept the guts of the kitchen; the cabinets and appliances and removed the formica countertops, installed a new deep sink and amazing Moen MotionSence faucet, and tiled the back splash. We also added some extra cabinet space. Today, we are sharing a few of the … [Read more...]

Cruising with a 6 Month Old

Cruising with an Infant

I started writing this post right after we returned back from a cruise with our son, Ryder, who had just turned 6 months old.  And the holidays started to creep up on me, and well it's a new year and Ryder is 9.5 months old. Better late than never. We love to cruise. I've been on 15+ and Jon has been on 12+. We've done all the cruise lines. So today I'm sharing my insight in cruising with a 6 month old. Prior to leaving for our cruise, I researched and researched and found very little info. … [Read more...]

5 Ways to Prepare for Cold & Flu Season

5 Ways to Prepare for Cold and Flu Season

I am a Filtrete Brand blogger ambassador and was compensated for this post, but all opinions and selection of additional products used in this project are my own. The dreaded cold and flu season is here. Jon has been sick on and off for the past few months, and somehow Ryder and I escaped the nasty colds he has had. It finally crept up on me last week, and I'm slowly recovering. The stomach bug and colds are going around at a few of the mommy and me weekly meet-ups Ryder and I attend. No … [Read more...]
