DIY Chalkboard Globe - Pottery Barn Kids Copycat

Make this easy chalkboard globe that looks just like the one from Pottery Barn Kids.  It's the perfect DIY project for back to school or your playroom.

Generally speaking, I don't browse stores and think "I could make that in a second!"  But it's happened a couple of times lately.  One time involved a pair of rhinocerous bookends.  The baby obviously NEEDS rhinocerious bookends.  More on that later though.  The other involved a chalkboard painted globe.  A $59 chalkboard globe.  Child please!

A Little Ones Baby Registry + Pre Baby Bonding Time

This weekend I had a little girl's day and made a Kohl's Little Ones baby registry as part of a sponsored post for #CollectiveBias and their advertiser.  

Time is flying and suddenly that teeny tiny blip on an ultrasound is just a few months away from being a son, a grandson, a baby brother, and most importantly a second chance for Craig and I to experience being the parents of a little baby.  Hopefully under much less stressful conditions.  Which brings me to my next stress point.  Oh yeah, it's been 5+ years since we had a baby

The Dirty Truth - I hate to Clean, so I Cheat!

I treated myself to a new Eureka Airspeed vacuum as part of a sponsored post for #CollectiveBias and their advertiser.  Which was kind of awesome.  Even for a woman who hates to clean.  #EurekaPower

I have a few friends who just love to give me a hard time.  No matter how much I confess that my life is more managed chaos than Pinterest perfection, they refuse to believe it.  In fact, they go as far as implying that there is obviously a band of whimsical forest creatures who help me get dressed in the morning. And they think my home is perpetually clean.  Oh how I wish...but here's the truth.

Funny Bunny Poop Chocolate Easter Treats for Kids

I created my bunny poop chocolate Easter treats as part of a sponsored post for #CollectiveBias and their adverstiser.  #EatMoreBites

Easter is coming!  Kayla and I are always excited for a reason to decorate, celebrate, make a mess...you get the point.  Easter makes me think of bunnies.  And bunnies?  Quite frankly, they make me think of bunny balls.  Poop.  There, I said it.  Totally adorable and basically little sniffing, hopping, poop machines.

Ergobaby 360 Carrier + Baby Bloggy Boot Camp

I recently checked out the new Ergobaby 360 carrier and Ergobaby swaddler at Baby Bloggy Boot Camp.  This post is written by me on behalf of Liz Lange and ErgobabyProduct was provided. 

A little while back, I had the rare pleasure of attending a conference that didn't require me to travel.  Which was great.  Oh, and it was filled with crazy CUTE babies.  Which makes sense since it's called Baby Bloggy Boot Camp.  I present exhibit A:
