Swaddle Designs: The Baby Blanket Moms Really Want

I received product in exchange for this post. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
When I first found out we were expecting a baby I for some reason couldn't imagine having a girl. I really just assumed it would be a boy. Don't ask me why it was just stuck in my head that I would have two boys. After suffering through the pain of infertility I would never feel anything but blessed at being able to have a second child no matter what the sex. However...I have to admit when I learned we were in fact having a girl, I allowed myself to go a little pink crazy. It took a while but I learned to forgive myself for daydreaming about tea parties, lace and ruffles. I was going to have a daughter. When preparing for her arrival we received the most darling blanket from Swaddle Designs, it of course had to be pink!

BooginHead Helps You Boogie On With Baby

I received the below mentioned products in exchange for this post, all views and opinions are my own. 
When you first come home with a new baby everything can seem overwhelming. The amount of gear it takes just get through the day really adds up. I'm a firm believer in keeping things simple and if something works well for me then I'll keep doing it. Pacifiers were a lifesaver back when the Booper was a baby, so it was only natural that I would use them again with our baby girl. BooginHead makes several products that help parents and caregivers. I picked out two products to try from the BooginHead site. We put the Paci Grip and the Paci Pouch by BooginHead to the test. Read all about our results below.

Style And Comfort For Baby From Feltman Brothers

I received the product mentioned below in exchange for this post, all views and opinions are my own. 
As you know we recently welcomed home our sweet baby girl. After bringing her home the time has been flying by. She is now seven weeks old and changing so fast. I was saddened the other morning when I went to put one of her newborn outfits on her and it didn't fit anymore, however I was delighted that she can now fit into her Feltman Brothers one piece. She is our precious little angel and deserving of all the best things in life and I hope to give as many of those things as possible. Babies really only truly need a few things to stay happy. I've found that our little girl is easy to please. As long as she has a full belly and a clean diaper she stays happy....that is unless her legs get pulled too high up in her sleeper and get caught. Then she gets all bent out of shape. No one likes to be uncomfortable especially not when it's your clothes making you that way. I was just telling my friend about our trouble finding sleepers that would fit baby girl just right, then she changed sizes and we tried on her Feltman Brothers. Perfection. The sizing of the legs in the Feltman Brothers outfit were made just right for her.

Monstrous Fun With #AirheadsCrafts

received this product for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest review. You can join Smiley360 here!

Like most kids the Booper is a very active boy. He likes to stay busy all the time and that makes me have to work on having ideas for fun ways to spend our time. We were given a kit from Airheads to do some crafting and it was perfect timing since the weather has been colder outside. After looking at the Airheads we just wanted to tear into them like candy monster so that's exactly what he made. The Booper is always up for trying new things so when I asked if he wanted to make some Airheads candy monster puppets he jumped on board. This was an easy, fun and virtually mess-free candy craft!

This year has simply flew by! I'm still in shock that it's almost December. While waiting for our baby girl to arrive I kept wishing time to move faster now looking back I can't believe how quickly the time passed.

Thirsty? Reach For The #GreenBottleCap

This post is sponsored by Dasani and The Coca-Cola Company.
As we approach the holidays and quickly close in on the new year I've been thinking a lot about my life goals and health goals. After just having our little sweet pea I'm trying to lose some baby weight so I keep telling myself to drink more water. I have to remind myself to drink and when I reach for something cool I try to make sure I'm grabbing some water more often than not. As a busy on the go mom I will buy a bottle of water when I'm away from home. I feel good about my choice to drink water, but I used to feel guilty about all the plastic being used in those bottles. Recently, I've learned more about Dasani's mindfulness for the environment and how they're using less plastic in their bottles. Find out more and why you'll want to reach for the #GreenBottleCap the next time you buy water!

Dreaming Of A Second Honeymoon With Hyatt

This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.
Over ten years ago I married the guy who was made just for me! We were fortunate to have planned our honeymoon for a lovely location in Cancun. It was so romantic to be just the two of us far from everyone we knew, and to just sit on the lovely beach with our toes in the sand. Every year as we pass our anniversary I start dreaming of a second honeymoon. This year as the weather has turned cloudy and the rainy season starts I can't stop thinking about a romantic getaway in the sun. Next year, I am seriously considering Playa del Carmen, Mexico – the less touristy sister to Cancun. I looked at a few hotels and I would love to visit the newly opened Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen. It gets great reviews with easy beach and night life/dining access. Plus, from now until 11/30, this hotel (and many others) is 20% off if you stay two or more nights. Check out their Winter Savings going on now!

For The Love Of A Cousin: An Adoption Story #NAM15

I was compensated for this post, the views and opinions expressed here are my own. 
Did you know November is National Adoption Month? In honor of #NAM15 it's my pleasure to share my own experience with adoption and why it's so dear to my heart.

If you ask me about my childhood I would have to say I had an amazing one. If you asked me what made my childhood amazing I would say it was my family. If you asked me about some of my best memories they would most likely have to include my cousins. Because my memory isn't the best on details I can't remember if I was five or six when we got the news that my aunt and uncle were adopting. All I can remember was the emphatic joy that swept over my sister and I as we instantly started plotting all the fun we would have with our new family members. Cousins. It's such a small word but when I read or say it out loud my heart swells with the love I feel for them.

When you're a kid there's nothing quite as exciting as making your Christmas wish list. I know the Booper has been adding to his list almost every day. While I keep reminding him he won't get everything on his list he still enjoys just thinking about all the possibilities. I don't blame him. When I was little I loved daydreaming about all the toys. One thing that hasn't change since I was young is kids are still adding Lincoln Logs to their wish list.

Welcome Little One!

Meet our newest family member. Little miss was born on October 19 at 8:30 am and has been rocking our world every since! She was 20 inches long and weighed in at 8 pounds and 15.4 ounces, which was not as big as they had estimated. My scheduled C-section went wonderfully and was a world apart from the emergency one I had with the Booper. She has a head full of gorgeous brown hair perfect for headbands and bows! Little miss had to spend one night in the NICU after swallowing some amniotic fluid, but she was able to join me in my room the next day. The Booper is enjoying being a big brother and has taken on the new role with great enthusiasm. I've been so proud of him through all these big life changes! Take a peek below to see some intimate shots of our family welcoming our sweet baby girl.

The Journey Home Giveaway

All compensation and prizing for this post is provided by RLJ Entertainment. 
There's nothing quite like having an encounter with a wild animal. Growing up out in the country in southern Indiana I remember riding my bike one day and pausing down from our house at a creek to throw in some sticks. All of the sudden, I heard a strange blowing sound and the next thing I knew a huge Buck with large antlers ran out into the road right in front of my bicycle. I was scared to death, all I could do was just freeze, I couldn't even breathe. The large deer turned and looked right at me then took off running to the other side of the road. It was such a brief encounter and probably only lasted a few seconds, but I'll never forget it. We would see deer all the time around our house, but never had a been that close to a Buck and never had I felt so vulnerable! Wild animals are amazing to see, but they also deserve our respect. Read below about the film The Journey Home and enter for a chance to win a fun package.

Pic's Really Good Peanut Butter Review

I received the product mentioned below for review, all views and opinions are my own. 
There are few foods we just always have in our house and peanut butter is one of them. It's not an easy job to keep peanut butter stocked in our cabinets though because my husband is seriously addicted. We've tried lots of different brands of peanut butter, but my husband always chooses the all natural. When I told him I would be getting some peanut butter for a review he seemed more than willing to test it out and share his opinion. Our jar of Pic's Peanut Butter arrived and I couldn't keep the guys out of it. I started to worry I wouldn't get to taste any myself before it was gone so I hid the jar in the back of the cabinet. That was the first sign that Pic's is Really Good Peanut Butter!

Reach For Healthier Snacks With 2 Red Hens Snack Bags

I received the below mentioned product for review, all views and opinions are my own. 
Since I've been pregnant I've had a lot of strange cravings, but not all of my cravings are healthy and I've been trying to eat right. Snacking has always been where I run into trouble, I'll end up grabbing crackers or something easy and fast instead of something healthy. A few weeks ago I started a habit of buying cucumbers, peppers and baby carrots and chopping them into poppable bites then putting them into snack bags. Now I've been putting my reusable snack bags from 2 Red Hens to good use!

Stepping Up To Kindergarten With Pediped

I received the below mentioned product in exchange for this post, all views and opinions are my own. 
Starting Kindergarten is a huge step in life and for the Booper he's had to make several big steps the last few weeks. With a new baby sister on the way and moving to a big boy bed he's really had to step up to all the changes. He's been taking all in stride with his new shoes from Pediped. At five years old he hasn't learned how to tie his own shoes yet, so having hook and loop closures is really important for keeping him on the go. To be honest at this point in my pregnancy I can't bend down to help him with his shoes anymore, so we're thankful Pediped offers easy on styles in the Booper's size.

Help For Couples Trying To Conceive

SASMAR Conceive Plus® sponsored this blog post. The opinions and text are all mine.
The longing to have a child can be matched by no other longing of the heart I've ever known. From the time I was about ten years old I had a love for children. I started babysitting for family friends with my parents in the house and I just always knew in my heart I would have lots of kids of my own someday. When I met my husband we talked about having a family and we both agreed we wanted children and he knew my desire to have a large family and was on board. We purchased a fixer upper house with five bedrooms and planned to fill our home with the sounds of little feet running about! After our wedding we wasted no time in trying to start a family. Neither one of us wanted to wait we hoped to have our kids while we were still young. Four years came and went. Our arms were still empty. Even now, I can feel the sting of that pain we felt of not being able to conceive. The emotional roller coaster of infertility is so real it's almost tangible. I remember I would read any material about infertility I could get my hands on, but so many of the options for couples were outside our willingness or budget. Thankfully, today there is an over the counter option for couples who are longing to have a baby.
