Hi guys! I'm finally back from my extended break with another Stitch Fix try on session. No, we didn't travel back in time; I 100% meant to post this months ago and just didn't get around to it.

6 Toddler Books We Love to Read Over & Over Again

Monday, April 22, 2019

Did you know tomorrow is World Book Day? It's a great time (really any time is) to find some new reading material for spring! Reading was such a big part of my childhood growing up, so it's definitely something I want to share with McKenna. I love it when she hands me a book then climbs on my lap for story time. She usually picks the same books over and over (and over) again and that inspired me to write this post. I'm sharing all of her favorites that she never gets tired of hearing!

Monday, March 25, 2019

Before I had McKenna I never really carried a purse; keys, wallet, phone and I was out the door without a second thought. These days I still like to travel light and make sure we only pack the essentials in our diaper bag (which I plan on downsizing very soon). Besides diapers and wipes, there are only 5 things that are must-haves in our diaper bag. Keep reading for the 5 things in our diaper that I can't live without!

How I Got My Picky Eater to Eat More Vegetables

Monday, March 18, 2019

This post is sponsored by Beech-Nut® Naturals™. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Raise your hand if you struggle with a picky eater 🙋🏾 I don't even know how McKenna got to be a picky eater because I ate EVERYTHING while pregnant and breastfeeding and she ate a variety of pureed baby foods from Beech-Nut® Naturals™ before starting table food. I felt completely helpless when she ignored everything on her plate and some days I still feel that way at meal times. After one of my Google search sessions, I came up with a new plan to get my little girl to eat more than fruit and those orange peanut butter crackers. Keep reading to find out how I got my toddler to eat more veggies!

12 Birthday Party Theme Ideas for 2-Year Olds

Monday, March 4, 2019

This time last year I was in the thick of planning McKenna's 1st birthday party. The hardest part was deciding on a theme, but I eventually went with "Oh, The Places You'll Go" by Dr. Seuss and I loved how everything came out. This year we're going on vacation instead of throwing a party, but that still hasn't stopped me from scouring Pinterest for 2nd birthday party themes. I compiled a list of all of my favorite themes with some variation of the word "two." Hopefully this list will help any Mamas in the beginning stages of planning a party for their toddlers!

Why I Gave Stitch Fix A Second Chance + Try On Session

Monday, January 28, 2019

A couple years back, I used to review my Stitch Fix boxes on this blog (you can read all about my last 4 boxes here).

I decided restart my subscription to Stitch Fix a few months ago so keep reading to learn why!
