Let’s talk maternity style…

Okay, moms… am I the only one who finds it challenging to feel beautiful while pregnant? Your body changes so drastically and so quickly that it can be hard to keep up. For me, the hardest part of feeling attractive during pregnancy is finding flattering clothes. Cute maternity clothes are hard to come by!

I’ve written before about how, for various reasons, much of my maternity wardrobe from Baby #1 isn’t working for me this time around. It’s a different season, I’m a different size, and my style has changed a lot. So, I was totally game when PinkBlush Maternity asked if I wanted to feature their cute maternity clothes on my blog!

I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug Review + Giveaway

My little guy loves reading! I’ve always been a voracious reader and it’s my hope that my children are the same way. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you know that my 2-year-old already likes to read books on his own. And by read, I mean that he says “words words words words words” as he moves through the pages. Close enough, right?

In all seriousness, our storytimes are some of my favorite parts of the day. I really think they are some of Colton’s favorite times, too. If your children love reading, you’ll want in on this I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug Review + Giveaway!

Happy Easter!

Easter is fast approaching, which means it’s time to start getting those baskets ready! I’m helping you out today with some creative and unique Easter basket ideas for 2-year-old boys. Of course, many of these ideas will work for other ages and toddler girls as well. I’ve also included some of my favorite Easter basket ideas for babies!

In 2017, Easter is on April 16. That means we have less than a month to get everything ready for the little ones. Isn’t it funny how much planning goes into holidays when you’re a parent? I miss being a kid, when everything was magically ready for you when you woke up on a special day. Only now do I realize how much work my mom put into those Easter baskets, Easter meals, and egg hunts!

For once, I actually planned ahead and already have Colton’s basket ready to go! Here’s what’s in my 2-year-old boy’s Easter basket this year…
