Meg’s Baby Announcement AND Baby Monitor Giveaway

I'm so thrilled to tell all of you that baby #2 is well on its way! At 18 weeks pregnant I'm almost to the halfway mark and feeling great. The first trimester had me really feeling queasy so you might have noticed my posts were particularly light. Luckily, I've moved into the stage where everything is feeling great! And due to some early tests and sonogram guesses we already know that it's a boy! We are so excited for Jake to be a big brother and expand the BonBon family. Kristin even got to...

5 Cheap Outdoor Toys to Love

Cheap Outdoor Toys

I am all about getting this kid off the couch and outside to enjoy Summer! I want us to savor every warm sunny drop of it and have fun outdoors with friends and family. And at the end of the day my goal is to have him fall sleep with dreams of popsicles and bubbles dancing in his head. We aren't quite at the age where he is ready to go off an invent his own outdoor adventures, so its important that I'm armed with activities for us to do outside (other than play...

Freshly Picked Moccasins Giveaway

If you know me in real life, you know that I'm somewhat obsessed with Freshly Picked moccasins. I bought the lil' lady bean's first pair a year ago and let's just say she has quite the moccasins collection now. Haha! So, when I was given the opportunity to review AND give away a pair to one of you lovely readers, you know I jumped on that tout de suite. There are so many things I love about Freshly Picked moccasins, it's hard to put them ALL in one little post, but I'll try. They're GREAT quality...

Sharing the Pudding Love

Kozy Shack Pudding Love

Disclosure: This article is sponsored by Kozy Shack, but the opinions expressed are all my own. Growing up, dinner always felt a little extra special when Mom made a dessert. It was a sweet treat that happened about once or twice a week and often it was pudding with a dollop of whip cream on top. The veggies somehow cleared the plate a little faster knowing dessert was on its way, funny how that happens ummm hmmmm. Now that I'm a Mom of my own, I like to find time to savor those little treats with...

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...
