Protect Your Home with TotalProtect

Anyone who owns a home knows that even new ones can become absolute money pits in a hurry. I remember being in shock that first year after we bought our first home. Every month there seemed to be something around the house that needed to be repaired. Things seemed to just come out of nowhere. Do you want to protect your home? I know I do! Now that we have our sweet little cherubs, I'd rather spend our hard earned money on them than on expensive home repairs, so a home warranty plan like the ones...

Family Mealtime is Priceless

As a brand representative, I have been compensated for this post. Growing up, my mom always made mealtime a special part of the day that she would sit down with my sister and I, after cooking one of her delicious meals, and catch up with what was going on in our lives. It feels like yesterday that it was just the three of us sitting down to eat dinner together, so it's crazy to think that I'm now a mother myself. My goal is to continue on that mealtime tradition my mom started with my own little...

She Gets Carried Away

I would say that 99% of the time my lil' lady bean is Miss Independent. She wants to do EVERYTHING herself and that includes pushing her own stroller. Haha! There is an exception to the rule however. She LOVES being carried around by her daddy. She's definitely Daddy's little girl and seeing those two together always makes my heart swell. We had the opportunity to try out the new Stokke MyCarrier Cool recently and it's a hit with both daddy AND baby. So, she's a happy girl when she gets carried away in her 3 in...

I Was Born to Have a Baby Girl

My blog post was written as part of my collaboration with eBay. If you've read our blog for a while, it probably comes as no surprise to you that I was over the moon happy when I found out that a baby girl would be joining our family. Just like when I just knew I was having a boy when I was pregnant with the dude, I had a very strong feeling that the lil' lady bean was a girl before I actually found out what we were having. I may have even picked up a...

Children's Spring Style by EGG

It hit 68 degrees here yesterday in the DC area. After a winter colder than even the weather woman can remember, 68 degrees is a really big deal.

If you haven't yet made it to an Egg store (there's one in Georgetown or find a list here) or the Egg website, you should definitely add it to your list. Egg by Susan Lazar offers adorable and fresh,...

Fun Valentine’s Day Photos

Valentine's Day Photos

Happy Valentine's Day from Jake! Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to take some silly, cheesy photos and you know I can't resist a good photo shoot. Last year I got these great photos of Jake when he was one and turned them into postcards for the family. We had so much fun that day as a family and I knew I wanted to do something again this year. Only problem is that photographing a two-year-old is a whole new challenge! I mean when I ask him to smile, I get this weird contorted face,...

Well, the site, Borrow Mini Couture, has been completely revamped, has added six new designers AND carries boys clothing now! We all know how fast our little cherubs grow and it doesn't always make sense to invest serious dollars in an ensemble that they'll only wear a time or two. That's where Borrow Mini Couture comes in.
