I found this on Pinterest and wanted to share.  Love it.



Diapers and a Glass of Wine, Please.

Doesn’t that look nice?  Thought so.

Ever heard of Lot18?  Neither had I–until now.  Apparently, your brilliant peeps are also part-founders in this extravaganza, too.  Lot18 is an invitation-only website that “provides access to high-quality, hard-to-find wines and gourmet foods at attractive prices, as well as wine- and gourmet-themed travel excursions and exclusive dinners at top restaurants across the country,” (  Gotta love this Groupon-esque website.  Um, sign me up, please!

Thank You for Being Honest

Just a few days ago, Jessica Alba gave birth to another baby…The Honest Company.  She’s all about chemical-free and eco-friendly diapers, wipes, detergents, and body washes–all for baby! Sign up for a free trial and then have reoccurring shipments show up at your door each month.  She remembers to pick up your baby’s diapers so you don’t have to!


Oh, So Sour! Yet, So Sweet!

I just came across one of the best shower (or anytime) gifts.  Citrus Lane was created by two mothers who, like me, was  (and still is!) totally overwhelmed with all of the STUFF out there for babies.  Carriers, car seats, strollers, lotions, food…my gaawwddd, the list goes on and on.  I’ve seen tidbits about this company on Daily Candy and Facebook, so I decided to check it out for myself.  You can buy gift boxes for a specific amount of time that are sent directly to your door (or your recipient’s door!)  For a minimum of $25 (depending on the box size) and free shipping, you get a different box each month with surprise goodies.  Most of these boxes are valued at much, much more!  Gift boxes are full of some of the best snacks, utensils, bath products, board books…you name it…a baby or toddler can use.  Seriously, this website rocks.  It also saves me time from running to the store for my next baby shower purchase.

Drink It Up

15 01 2012

What’s one thing we really can’t live without?  Water.  For awhile, getting my son to drink out of a sippy cup had been a struggle.  After months of purchasing new cups, reverting back to bottles, trying different flavors of milks, juices, flavored waters…I had finally found it!  As it turns out, my son, like me, is very particular when it comes to the type of container he drinks his liquids from.  I have three great sippys to share:

This company is super eco-friendly, they only use kitchen-grade stainless steel, it’s BPA free (BPA is just another chemical found in plastics that our children don’t need), and the spout works with Avent’s patented sippy spout.  Oh, and they come in lots of kool kolors, too!

Take&Toss by First Years is another great sippy.  These don’t break the bank and if you lose one, well, big deal.  These are BPA free, as well, reusable, recyclable, and spill proof!  Believe it or not, they hardly ever leak–even when they get “tossed” on the ground.

  • Vapur ($9.99 for a .5L)

This sippy is for everyone else–other than the babies.  I chose this picture because it shows how compact it is once you’ve emptied it.  I love how this “Anti-Bottle” (which the company calls it) is freezable, foldable, dish-washable, and attachable.  On their website, Vapur talks about how over 176 billion plastic bottles will be either dumped into landfills or left to float in the ocean EACH YEAR!  Do yourself  (and the planet) a favor–buy a reusable water bottle and stop buying plastic bottles to throw away after each use.
