Nelle & Lizzy Review and Giveaway!

 * I received a complimentary ring from Nelle & Lizzy for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions*

Never underestimate the determination of a mother!  Nelle & Lizzy was created when Page a mother of 3, received a simple triple band sterling silver ring as a gift, she wanted to have the names of her boys stamped on the outside.  She took the ring to numerous jewelers and called all over the US trying to get this "simple" task done, but kept getting the same answer "impossible".   She called her friend Martha who is an experienced designer and together they began the journey of creating a jewelry line that subtly expresses who is in your heart.  After years of designing, researching and fabricating they released the original Nelle & Lizzy rings!

RECARO Performance Sport Car Seat Giveaway!

One thing that I did not secure for a giveaway prize in the Mommy's Little Miracle event was a convertible car seat. I purposely did this for two reasons - 1) Convertible car seats are more for older infants and toddlers, and 2) Because I already had plans to team up with my good friend Cristen at The Naptime Reviewer to bring you this fabulous giveaway!

Broccoli and Cheese Bites {Our Most Popular Post Resurfaced!}

This post was originally published last December and has been our most viewed and most pinned post throughout 2014. I thought it would be fun to resurface it, just in case you haven't had the chance to make it for your little one yet! This is one of Little Misters favorite snacks that I've made for him!

Little Mister is one of the pickiest eaters ever. He is so hot and cold when it comes to food that everything I make him to eat is a nerve-racking experience. Will he eat it? Will he love it? Is he tired of this? I just never know.

When it comes to sweets, he's like me and has no problem devouring the whole plate of whatever sweet is put in front of him, but when it comes to healthy things and veggies….yeah right. After having a long conversation with a good friend of mine she inspired me to create a bite sized, veggie infused, muffin for Little Mister, since he loves muffins!

8 Must Haves for Postpartum After a Vaginal Delivery

Although it has been over three years since I had Little Mister, with Little Boy's delivery quickly approaching I've been thinking about the things that I'll need for those days and weeks of postpartum as my body recovers. Birth is unpredictable and I fully understand that I may not end up with another vaginal delivery (although that is the goal of course), but I've already compiled my list of things that I will need for after-baby and thought I would share it with you!
