Nesting and A Little Nursery Tour!

A couple of weeks back, Craig went on a guys weekend trip.  I found myself with the irrational, burning desire to purge, clean, sort, organize and give away.  And then I prayed I would not go into premature labor because obviously I had been bitten by the end of pregnancy nesting bug.  Hard.  It's incredible the kind of progress you can make when you're working on pregnant lady adrenaline despite not being able to bend at certain angles, lift heavy things or consume copious amounts of caffeine.

Safe and Stylish Bath Toys - Begin Again Bathtub Pals + Boon White Whale Pod

Not too long ago we renovated our guest bathroom.  Which I was terrified of doing because it was my first real home renovation project.  I wanted something simple, clean and stylish that be transformed with accessories over time. Since we couldn't be more in baby and kid mode if we tried, I had started kid-cessorizing the bathroom in my head well before it was done.  There were two products stood out as must haves for safety and aesthetics - Begin Again's Bathtub Pals and the Boon Whale Pod in White.

Blackout Box of FUN for Kids - Blackout Entertainment with Duracell

My Blackout Box of Fun for Kids with Duracell is a great distracting emergency kit for kids during a natural disaster. This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc.  and its advertiser.  All opinions are mine alone.  Obviously. #PrepWithPower

Just a few weeks back, I watched my husband roll his eyes at me as I mentioned I should really make sure my car had a full tank of gas and we had some basics like extra water and a couple of LED lanterns in the house.  Here in San Diego, there were wildfires in full swing and while where we live is usually not an area that is affected by them, you never know.  It just takes one genius with a cigarette butt after all.

20 Minutes For Me Kit - A DIY Relaxation Kit from Whole Foods Market

I created my 20 Minutes For Me Kit, a DIY relaxation kit as part of a sponsored post for Whole Foods #WFMSummerFun It's perfect for those in need of a little escape.

Do you know someone who can use a little escape from their day?  I can think of about 17 close friends that fall into that category.  This week I was thinking about the future and how little time I'll have to do girly things, you know, like taking a shower that ends with lotion application.  Thus my creation of the 20 Glorious Minutes For Me kit.  It's the perfect gift to yourself or to a friend to make and let them stash away until they desperately need that 20 minutes of sanity time.

SuperME - Super Hero Gear for Girls

Looking for super hero dress up gear for girls? This SuperME backpack is perfect for a little girl who wants to be a super hero on the go.  Thanks to SuperMe for sending one my way to test out.

A few weeks back, Kayla was invited to a birthday party that came with optional instructions to dress like a superhero.  Which is awesome if you're a little boy.  It's also quite limiting if you're a girl.  Probably because the only female super hero I can name is Wonder Woman?  Which is why I was very happy to find the SuperMe line.

How to Choose a Baby Gym - Tiny Love Gymini Developlace

Want to know how to choose the best baby play gym?  I'll show you how with tips to pick the best baby gym.  Thanks to Tiny Love for sending me this Gymini Developlace to check out.

Do you remember the days when words like teething necklace, Gymini and meconium were not in your vocabulary?  Yeah, I don't.  Probably because a motherhood induced coping mechanism prevents me from having full clarity of life before Kayla.  Also, I don't remember what I had for breakfast yesterday.   Now that we've gotten to easy with one fairly self sufficient 5 year old it just made sense to totally start all over again.  Not.
