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.
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

What a year this has been and it has been lacking a lot of style. I’m the first to admit that I’m not the most fashionable person in the world, but being pregnant for most of the year means my wardrobe has been pretty limited. Sure, I had some cute maternity clothes,
When there’s a new baby on the way, clothes shopping is probably my favorite thing to do. Of course, right now I’m hesitant to buy anything until my next ultrasound. I want a little more certainty than my 20 week ultrasound tech could give me before making purchases! Doesn’t mean I won’t
I used to think it was funny and a bit odd to see people out in public and their child holding a naked doll. Now, we are one of those families. Do you see the topless doll in her hand? I felt weird trying to photograph her dolls without their clothes so
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.
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

I never used to be big into custom shirts or rhinestones, but the two go together very well on little girl’s clothes… and on women’s shirts too if it’s not overdone. It’s actually kind of feminine looking. While there are tons of premade shirts out there, sometimes no one can capture what
We have plenty of holiday gatherings to attend and Miss Riss needs to be dressed to the nines! I had one cute little Christmas outfit for her last year but no one really saw it since she slept through most of it. This year she’ll be awake and in pictures. Looots of
I wish I could draw. I really do. I feel like I have a lot of talents, but drawing is not one of them no matter how hard I try! If you are looking for something different… something a little edgy like streetwear, you might want to check out Bobiam. What really

Like many moms, I like dressing my baby up in nice looking clothes even if she insists on getting them dirty. Unfortunately, baby clothes are expensive! Some of her outfits retail at or more than my own. It’s crazy! Now, I don’t mind some donations and hand-me-downs, but it’s nice to have

One area of my life that doesn’t have enough green in it is clothing and bedding. I don’t know a whole lot about the manufacturing process, but I can only imagine the amount of chemical residue that comes in contact with our skin from materials like clothing. Plus, the process itself is
