As Savannah gets closer and closer to being here, I am trying to make sure to have everything we need to make it a smooth transition when she gets home. When Broxton was born, we had a waterproof mattress.  (It was plastic.)  Now, we have a new one for Savannah.  It is a really nice organic one, but the thing is... there is no waterproof protection. I started looking online for a waterproof protector and found one online at Protect-A-Bed.   The Premium Crib Protector provides all of the standard features and benefits of our Premium Mattress protector. Our Premium line is backed with the revolutionary Miracle Membrane® , which is waterproof while remaining air vapor porous. This means body heat is allowed to easily pass throug…

Remember when I shared with you all of the great baby products from Hallmark?  Well, did you know that Hallmark has a clothing line for baby and I am totally in love????
Yes!!! I have loved Hallmark for as long as I can remember ( it used to be a dream of mine to make Hallmark Greeting Cards one day)  so of course I am on the Hallmark newsletter email list.  As soon as I saw the Hallmark baby clothes, I knew that I had to have something for little miss Savannah!

Do not worry, you will be seeing her in these outfits soon enough, but I had to share with you just how adorable they are!

Many years ago (No, I will not disclose how many I mean) I learned of Burts Bees.  At first, it was just their lipbalm.  I fell in LOVE with it and once I was in love, I had to share it with everyone I knew.  I even went so far as to buy like 20 or more tubes and gave them out to some of my co-workers, friends and customers.  It was amazing and I knew I had found a great product.  Then, I started learning of their other products.  What got me was when I could buy a grab bag of goodies for a certain price and then get to try all sorts of things out.
Now that we are having our little girl, I am excited that I will be getting to introduce the baby line to her skin!   Are you familiar with Baby Bee? 


We were sent several products…

I know it is summer, but it is still a great time to read and work on getting great books in our personal library. I am so lucky that Broxton likes to snuggle up in my lap for us to read and I hope that Savannah enjoys it as well.  We are working on our library for Broxton and then to pass along to Savannah.  Thankfully Random House Kids sent us a few more books to add to our collection!   Apes A- Go - Go  A fun book we just read was Apes A-Go-Go by Roman Milisic.  This was a cute book.  It is a hard covered book with pages full of colorful illustrations.  In this book, we head to a cute little town that is set to win the "tidiest town competition" for the third year in a row... but one thing after another happens an…

It is not a secret that Broxton has been dealing with eczema since he was born.  We are lucky that it isn't always an issue, but it does flare up from time to time.  Mostly when it is really cold and his skin gets dried out, or when it is really hot, he gets flare-ups where the knees and elbows bend.  We have tried many products and some work, while others make him scream in pain.  I don't have eczema, so I have no idea what it feels like, but I know that I hate watching him suffer.  We ran out of the product that we had been using and I went to find another.  I could not locate it, so I asked the local pharmacist what they would recommend.  She ended up pointing me to CeraVe and said that it was really great.  I rea…

Broxton is getting at the age where he doesn't always want to wear cartoon character clothing.  Now don't get me wrong, he still does at times, but other times he thinks he is too grown to wear them and we have to have other options.  Lucky for us, we were sent a couple cute and adorable (to me) PJ sets from little twig and sparrow.  They look to be super comfortable and they are not covered in characters that make him feel like a "kid."  (Side note, he is a KID to me.. he is 6, why do they need to grow up so fast?) 
We were sent the brown one ( we call it the puppy dog outfit, since the dark brown with light brown patches reminds us both of a cute little puppy) and also the blue one (we have since started …

I hope you have seen the movie, Inside Out.  It is a cute movie and I love the message behind it.  Since it is new and popular, Disney has gone ahead and released several books for all ages to enjoy this story.  I love that they released them during the summer, when some kids stop reading.  Maybe this will be what they need to get those juices flowing!   The two books I am sharing today (I shared two yesterday, go check it out)  are for two different age groups. One is for older kids (9-12) and one is for the younger ones (3-5)  either way, great books and a great message!  Enjoy!  If you haven't seen the movie, I hope you do soon!

I love laying down and relaxing when I have time, but having a very active 6 year old son makes it impossible most days.  Yes, I would love to prop up and take a nap from time to time, but how fun is that for the child?  They want to go and do and play and be active.  Now, I can rest and relax and even pamper myself before bed and it works great for me!  
We were recently sent the Bausch + Lomb Thera Pearl Eye Mask and it is wonderful!   I have one and then Marc has his own.  There is nothing like it!   The Eye Mask is plastic with all of these little bead type things inside it. (Hence the "pearl" in the name.)  They are soft enough to conform to your face and be used for many head sizes. 
I have not used it warm y…
