As the time quickly approaches for Savannahs arrival, we are getting down to getting the basic things we still need to welcome her home. I will be the first to admit that I am still struggling thinking of things we need versus things I want versus things that are totally unnecessary. I started looking online for a few items and was introduced to the wide variety of things offered at Go Mama Go Designs.  Lucky for me, they have several things that I do think we need and I want to share two of them with you today.

Up first - a swaddling blanket.  If you come to our house (or if you know any of us at all) you will know that for the majority, we keep the house pretty chilly. I blame it on my mom, as she ALWAYS has the house cold …

If you ask someone who their hero is, I am sure you will get 5 million different answers.  I was asked to be part of the #ShareYourHero Campaign with Mrs. Fields Cookies and I was thrilled to be a part of it. 
First of all, I asked my 6 year old who a hero to him was.  OF COURSE his first answer was his daddy.  Not only because he is his daddy, but also because of the military.  Then, I asked him if he could tell me what a hero was.  He said a hero is somebody that is a good person and that helps you.
If you look up the definition of a hero, it says:

Just in case you were not aware... Kidz Bop 29 is headed our way!!!!
If you remember, Broxton is OBSESSED with these CD's. Every day I hear him asking to please play the CD for him.  He has even said he needs to get a CD player so that he can listen to the music when he is at home playing with his toys, not just in the car. I hate to admit that I know NONE of the songs on the latest CD, but Broxton knows one...  The song "GDFR" He heard it from his brothers and he has to listen to it all the time.  Now, he can listen to it in the car.  I love that the songs are all clean. We can listen to the music and I don't have to worry about any profanity.  These CD's are great for kids parties, the pool and other …

Have you ever heard of the brand, Feltman Brothers
I didn't know anything about it, until Broxton was born and someone gave us one of their outfits.  To say I fell in love would be an understatement. Growing up, my grandmama made our clothes and yep, she even knew how to smock.  I think clothing with smocking are absolutely beautiful, but they can get rather pricey. We were lucky that she was able to smock (*and save lots of money) I am not so lucky now, as far as her sewing abilities. 
She is 90 something years old and no longer sews...  So, if I want a cute little smocked outfit, I have to buy one or have someone give me one...   I was SO EXCITED when I learned I would have the chance to work with Feltman Brothers in…

I am in love with Feltman Brothers. I learned of this brand when Broxton was born and I am SO EXCITED that we were sent a beautiful dress for review from them.  They have recently released their PIMA COTTON line and I wanted to share that with you. (Yes, I secretly want one of these precious outfits too... but I am so happy that we have something from them!)  Make sure you come back tomorrow to see what we were sent.  YOU -WILL-BE- IN - LOVE - TOO!!!! From the moment you first see and feel the new Pima Cotton line from FeltmanBrothers, you’ll be captivated. With their brand new layette collection, this steeped-in-tradition company has combined their beautiful smocked and embroidered trademarks with baby-friendly functionality…

Time is ticking down for the arrival of our little one this summer!   Knowing that, we are trying to finish getting all the different things we need to have it all on hand when she gets here.  If you remember from previous posts, I mentioned how you could do a themed gift bag for the parent to be, you could do a brand or you could do lots of odds and ends.  The products mentioned today would make a great gift bag of odds and ends that would be perfect!  From covering the end with skin protectant ointment to covering their body with a swaddling blanket, this is great. Not to mention the mealtime scissors for those a little older! Read on to see what would make a great gift for anyone you know!

We are already stocking the library with books for Savannah.  Granted, many of them will be coming from Broxton's collection, but she will be getting new books as well.  When I saw the adorable bedtime books from Sterling Publishing, I knew we would love to check them out!
Sleepy Kitty and Sleepy Puppy are the two new titles that we were sent.  These books are both board books and are the perfect size for little hands to hold and check out each page.   I am not a fan of cats / kittens, but Broxton and I both thought that the Sleepy Kitty book was cute.  I love that you have one page with a sweet little photo and then the opposite page has a solid background with simple text.   Broxton absolutely loved the Sleepy Puppy book…

If you have a little girl in your life, chances are, you are familiar with Lalaloopsy.  When Broxton was in PRESCHOOL, I was first introduced to these cute little dolls.  A girl in his class was OBSESSED with them.  I believe she had pretty much every single one that was out and she would bring a different one to school each day. Lucky for us, they released a few new toys of them right at her birthday, so we were able to grab a new one that she did not have. (Oh yeah, she loved it...  She even had a specially made Lalaloopsy cake for her party!) 
So, I had a blast shopping for her birthday gift and at that point, I was really wishing I had a little girl to buy these dolls for. (Their show is super cute too, if you have not w…

THIS IS AN UPDATED POST....
I love to travel.  I will be honest, I never flew on a plane until I was in my third year in college and once I did, it was over... I loved it and I went a few places in my twenties.  Hey, you live once and you need to make the most of it, at least that was how I felt!  
Once I was married and an "adult" bills took over and I could not just fly here and there, I had to be "responsible."  Don't get me wrong, we went on a few little vacations here and there, but come on, you know it gets expensive the more you have.  It was no longer just ME... I had Marc and the boys... so flying to Chicago for the weekend turned into a staycation for us and trips to the Zoo and other fun places.
