I Was Transformed for the Disney Consumer Product’s Glamorous Cinderella Showcase Dinner

I don’t get pampered very often, at least not lavishly.  (My husband does a great job with the day-to-day stuff, don’t get me wrong!).  It wasn’t long ago that I shared with you that I got my second pedicure ever in my life.  I didn’t get another one while in LA, but

What DisneyNature’s Chimpanzee Taught Me About Family

My daughter was excited to watch monkeys on the television at home.  She had a much better view with DisneyNature’s Chimpanzee than she gets at the zoo.  She giggled in delight at Oscar’s antics and asked what happened when his mama didn’t return.  I didn’t think I’d get so choked up over

My Amusing Toddler – A Random Collection

As Rissa grows I keep finding new stages of her life that I enjoy. I’m really liking this almost-2-years-old stage right now because of how verbal she is, her ability to retell events, and her overall silliness. I wanted to share a random collection of Rissa with all of you! She’ll wear

3 Reasons Why I Love the Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper

When I was preparing for Rissa’s arrival, I didn’t really know what I was doing.  I pretended I knew and tried to do research.  Well, let’s just say that was both helpful and not-so-helpful.  Between unsolicited advice, long answers, no real answers, strong opinions, and reading a ton of internet reviews my

Push Present Ideas for New Moms: Jewelry From Juno Lucina

Have you ever heard of a push present or a push gift?  I hadn’t until recently when I was contacted by Juno Lucina asking if I was interested in working with them.  Admittedly I felt silly not knowing what a push gift was since I’m pregnant with my second child.  I thought
