Princess Bowtique Review & Giveaway!

princess boutique 9

I've been talking with my friends about each of our favorite and least favorite stages of childhood.  Some parents have a certain age or stage that they really enjoy, and perhaps one that is really difficult.  Personally, I find the age of 2-3 the most hair-pulling and testing for me to be calm about, but I love love LOVE the newborn stage!  I love how my baby's needs are so simple and they are as cuddly as ever.  I love their long naps, their complete dependence without a fight, and how you ... ...continue reading

Hey Photographers! Butterfly Backdrops Review & Giveaway!

If you have children, you understand the powerful connection that can reside between a child and his stuffed animal!  These special characters get taken everywhere -- on picnics, on vacations, and on every pretend adventure at home. They provide companionship during the day and comfort at night, and it can be small emergency when this friend goes missing. I totally understand this connection between my son and his bear. I love seeing my kids become attached to plush play toys, and knew my kids ... ...continue reading

Luxurious Bed Sheets from Cariloha Bamboo Review & Giveaway!


A few weeks ago, my husband found a crazy great Cyber Monday deal on a King size memory foam mattress and (after checking in with me), bought it on a whim!  While he was probably only thinking about the bed and the deal, my mind went into high-speed logistic-mode, thinking of all the things I had to do to make this work!  With just the right timing, I needed to sell our Queen size mattress and bed frame, or at least get them out of the house just when the new mattress arrived, figure out what to ... ...continue reading
