Back to School with OshKosh B’Gosh and a Giveaway

This post is sponsored, but the opinions expressed are our own. We've done the back to school thing before, but it feels so much different this year because my son is going into has first year of kindergarten. I don't know when my tiny little preschooler became such a big boy, but it happened. We've met his teacher, visited his classroom, joined the PTA and in just a few short days, my baby will be headed off to his first day in elementary school. While part of me is sad to see him grow up so...

Tips to Make Traveling Without the Family Easier

food list

As you may have seen, Kristin and I are traveling together this week without our families. It's wonderful to take a girlfriend break and relax in the sun, but I've learned a few trips these past few years that ensure everything runs smoothly at home while the hubby is solo-parenting. 1. Meal Planning: We all have the things that we are good at around the house. My husband is wonderful at taking care of the house and yard, but putting together meals is not his specialty. To make it easier on my boys, I plan a...

Levana Video Monitor Giveaway

This is a sponsored post. As the parents of a very active toddler, we're at the point where we've had to start worrying about our precious lil' lady bean climbing out of her crib. We aren't quite ready to transition her crib to the toddler bed yet, so we have been on high alert at night. Enter the Levana Ayden Video monitor. Our nursery is right across the hall from our bedroom, so we haven't really felt the need to use our old baby monitor that much. Our other monitor didn't have a great picture and was...

Stay Cool with the Stokke Summer Kit

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know we're a die hard Stokke loving family. From gear to nursery furniture, Stokke is definitely one of our go-to baby brands and this summer I'm particularly loving the Stokke Xplory Summer Kit. The Xplory is such a great, multi-functional, stroller not only because it allows baby to ride higher, closer to mama, but you can also switch out its textiles. While we typically have the lovely, neutral, Blue Melange textiles on the stroller, I thought it would be fun to switch to something lighter...

4th of July

I know this post is a week behind, but we just had to share these photos. For the second year in a row, we were able to get the BonBon families together on the 4th of July.

It is so great to see our kids playing together and such a rare treat!  I also love how...

American Girl Giveaway

I can't tell you how excited I am about today's American Girl giveaway! Let me give you a little history on me and American Girl..I've been an American Girl fan for AGES. I remember wanting Samantha SO bad when I was growing up. Alas, I never did get her, but I finally got to experience the magic of American Girl first hand when I visited the Chicago store last summer. While I was there I picked up a Molly doll for my sister. As much as I wanted Samantha, she wanted Molly and I was thrilled...
