How to make the perfect size smash cake #birthday #smashcake #baking

My little man turned ONE this past week… oh, how time  f l i e s! He wasn’t feeling very well and I hadn’t planned on a big party since my hubby had to work late so I decided instead to do a simple photo shoot to capture this sweet age and let him explore […]

Diapering with Simply Right

Simply Right Baby Wipes via

Hey momma’s! Here’s a fun fact: babies average 3k diapers a year. THREE THOUSAND. Yoinks-A-Doinks! (Name that kid show for 5 points!) So anyway, maybe that’s not so fun of a fact after all…. especially since I probably double that as I am a saggy diaper-a-phobe; I do not like to let my boys diapers get […]

Hospital checklist for delivery | Perrigo Nutritionals giveaway

Hospital packing list | Lolly Jane

A few months ago (holy cow, almost 8 months ago!) I asked you gals what you would bring to the hospital when delivering a baby.  I took notes on your suggestions and well, after 3 1/2 hours of pushing, had a baby!  I then modified my list on what I actually used and now have […]

Epidural or à la naturale?

My toddler room project I’ve been working on since Monday isn’t coming along as fast as I would like {I warned you, I’m no Kelli!} but I’m hoping to post it tomorrow.   For today, let’s chat….  I had my 6 month check up yesterday and while listening to baby’s sweet heartbeat, I got to […]

Did you find out…

…what you were having? The big 18 week appointment is quickly approaching and when the ultrasound tech asks me if we want to know what gender our little peanut is, I plan to say no and have it be a surprise on D-Day! {Deliver Day}  I know some people think waiting is completely crazy but […]
