One of the sad things about being away from family is that Broxton doesn't get the chance to bake and do fun things like that with my mom.  I know that sounds sad, but the truth is that my mom doesn't bake anyways, so it really isn't like he is missing much.  I do wish that I baked and did things like that, as he does enjoy when we make a cake or something, but that is not very often.
Growing up, I remember making cakes with my Nana and then getting to add the frosting at the end. When I saw the book, Baking Day at Grandma's, I thought it would be a cute book to read and I was not disappointed!

Being at the end of your pregnancy in the summer means you want to rest... At least that is what it means to me these days.  I am all about staying in and enjoying movies at home. When we were invited to have a perfect movie night to watch The Longest Ride (Nicholas Sparks, you know how much I love him) I was so excited to be part of this event.  Not only because of Nicholas Sparks, but also because who was I to turn down a date night at home?????
Based on the bestselling novel by master storyteller Sparks, THE LONGEST RIDE centers on the star-crossed love affair between Luke, a former champion bull rider looking to make a comeback, and Sophia, a college student who is about to embark upon her dream job in New York City’s art…

When Broxton was born, I tried to be the best at keeping notes... Only problem was that I was not keeping them all together.  I would write one thing on the back of a receipt, one on a post it note, on and on and on.  Now, I have no clue what is where and I admit, I did not do a good job of keeping a baby book of any sorts, so many of his "firsts" were seen by me... and of course I told family and friends... but if you ask me now, I would not be able to tell you when or anything like that.  It makes me sad, but I use it as a life lesson to do better this time around.
Oh, another thing that was hard for me was a schedule.
I found these sheets online and printed out a ton of them, it was to help me figure out when …

Did you know that they make high chairs that are perfect for camping??  Yes!!!!
We were recently sent a portable high chair for review and I have to tell you, we all think it is pretty neat.  You don't have to worry about me heading out camping anytime soon, but it is great for travel. Like if we go to visit my family, we can just throw it in the back of the car.  (It is seriously like one of those fold up chairs you throw in the bag to take the the beach or for tailgating.)  Speaking of tailgating, this would be perfect to put your little one in for a tailgating get together or even a family reunion or BBQ.  

You can purchase a Portable High Chair in a number of patterns.  You can order a solid colored one, such as red or…

If your summer could use a bit of excitement in it, make sure to check out Creativity In a Can .  I had never heard of them, but they are pretty nifty if you ask me.  Creativity in a Can is can full of odds and ends arts and crafts supplies.  You can buy the can based on a theme: Art, Motion, Music or others.  Then you let your creativity build whatever your heart desires! There are no instructions and you are free to explore new and creative ways to reach an end goal.   They make smaller cans that are perfect for individual play.  They also have larger cans that hold more craft supplies.  That would be a great one to sit out at a camp (or party) and it would even make a great gift idea for teachers caregivers to have on han…

In keeping with our SUMMER READING, I have a few new books to share with you today!
I have to admit that I love the books that are silly, so when I saw one was called There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed a Knight, I knew I was going to be giggling.   Also, when I saw that one was Playful Pigs from A to Z, I knew it was going to be a great new addition to Savannah's library!  
There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed a Knight  You might have read of the Old Lady swallowing things, but until you read about the Dragon swallowing all of the things after the knight, you have no clue what to expect!  This book was super cute and full of illustrations!   The Dragon decides to swallow the Knight (that's not polite) and then seem…

No matter your age, we all need to take care down there... Here is a product that is "free of harsh chemicals, fragrances and parabens."  Make sure you check to see what they carry, you can never be too careful.  


Conception:  In the fall of 2009, one day during a hectic week, Stacy Lyon was busy helping out a friend track down paraben-free personal care items after her friend’s breast cancer tumor biopsy came back loaded with the harsh preservative.  A few days later, a nurse practitioner in a Seattle OBGYN clinic voiced her concerns with seeing reoccurring vaginal infections in patients visiting her office. Yet another close gal pal confided that she had bouts of “not feeling fresh… down there”.  After an exhausti…

Summertime means HOT! HOT! HOT!  (Even more so when you are pregnant, at least I feel that way!)  Growing up, we had these frozen lemon treats, I have no clue where they came from... but they sure enough hit the spot.  So, when I was given a chance to check out the Real Italian Ice from Luigi's, I was so excited... especially when I saw they had LEMON!!!!

As Broxton would say, delicious!  It hit the spot each time I needed a little cool me down moment!
Now, we have not tried all the flavors yet, but I feel pretty confident that they are sure to have a flavor to satisfy your tastebuds!!!  They carry flavors like cotton candy, watermelon, blueberry and even fudge!!!  WOW!!!
Just a fun fact for you...
Did you know that Luig…
