Can we just talk for a second about how much I LOVE summer!!?? The heat, longer days, warm nights, fun activities, summer holidays,NO SCHOOL, and so much more! Really, I could go on all day! I was meant to be in the sun. I was MADE for the sun. Summer is my favorite!!!! But, with all that summer awesomeness there are also a lot of summer dangers! Especially when kids and babies are involved! So lets chat about how to prevent any nastiness from happening while you are out enjoying the sun this Holiday Weekend!
My sister is due in August with her first baby! (Wahoo!!) She is having a little boy and I could not be more thrilled! I wanted to throw her the perfect baby shower! Her and her husband are very big outdoorsy mountain people so I wanted to do something woodsy. Then it hit me! Woodland/Rustic! It was classy and cute but not cheesy! And was totally perfect for their personalities! And the best thing of all….the majority of the decorations were up-cycled!
If you want a fun, outdoor styled shower this is for you! It was so much fun decorating and thinking of all the fun foods!!! It is perfect for the outdoors gal in your life!!! You could also make it a cute couples shower if you want to go that route!
When my first son was nursing, he was diagnosed with Milk, Soy, Protein Intolerance. So basically I had to drop everything dairy if I wanted to continue nursing. So, I did! One of the easiest ways to do this was to use some Vegan recipes. They gave great substitutions for dairy products! So, needless to say, I was VERY excited when I was asked to review the Ebook 101 Vegan Chocolate Recipes! These are super easy recipes that give great substitutions! It’s super cheap to buy or you can read it for free on amazon!
Can we just get three cheers that summer is here!!?? HIP HIP HOORAY!!!!! If I could I would be outside every single day all day playing with my boys! And truth be told, my 2 year old would be outside all day every day as well!
I have been dying to get my son a Sand Box but have been a total cheapo and haven’t wanted to go buy one! Not to mention how much sand costs to fill it! (Who in the world came up with sand prices?!) Anyway…as I was scrolling through a classifieds Facebook page I am a part of I saw a little bookshelf for sale for $5. I had an instant light bulb! Bookshelf Sandbox! Yes please!
One of the scariest thoughts of bringing home baby number two in a few weeks is making sure my two year old is well taken care of while Mom and Dad are at the hospital! My mom will be the one with the awesome job of keeping the two year old alive while we are at the hosptial. So, I know that he is in good hands! But, my biggest concern is not having the time to make sure she knows all she needs to before we jet off to the hospital!
Being prepared in case of an emergency or unexpected circumstance crucial! Especially with little ones at home.If Mom and Dad have to leave quickly…what is the plan for the littles at home? Don’t get caught unprepared!! Being prepared will make an Emergency a lot easier to deal with! Especially if you aren’t panicking about the little people at home!
