My Top 5 Baby Money Saving Tips for New Parents

One of the first things I wanted to figure out as new parents was how we could save money on baby gear. I’m not a money saving expert.  In fact, I am much better at spending than saving. Well, I guess I have some idea on how to save so you can spend.


Tips for Dressing Newborns

I almost forgot how awkward it can be to dress and change clothes on a newborn.  It is certainly much different than a toddler who can help get dressed!  I felt more at ease this time than when Rissa was a baby, but still… they are so little and you try to

A New Year for a New Me Needs New Clothes! {$5K #StyleSURPRISE Sweepstakes} #ad

I’ve shopped Old Navy off and on over the years.  In store it can get frustrating because most locations do not carry their plus size collection.  At least I can shop that and their maternity selection online!  Most of my maternity clothes were bought at Old Navy and I kept nearly all

Last year we didn’t buy a special Easter dress for Rissa.  Instead, I tortured her with a lamb costume.  Do you remember this? That was back when she actually held still for pictures most of the time!  This year I wanted to get her a nice dress and a new pair of

It’s starting to warm up so I’m excited to look ahead at summer dresses for RissaBoo.  Even though we are a cat household, I do like dogs too.  I had dogs most of my life while living with my parents, but haven’t had one live with me since going away to college.


Do You Have a Fashion Forward Toddler?

Are kids born with a sense of fashion or is that a skill we acquire over time? I am completely serious in my question because I don’t know! I feel like I have a basic grasp on what looks okay but I do not think of myself as fashion savvy. Some trends
