New Products To Look Out For at Biggest Baby Shower

I had the pleasure of attending the annual Biggest Baby Shower in Los Angeles on March 7th presented by Huggies.   I know I’m not an expectant parent, but I have to say that I simply love coming to this event year after year.   Being introduced to new products for newly expectant parents, or seasoned expectant parents never ceases to amaze me. I love seeing the continual innovations in products, safety highlights and the aesthetics in the designs. AND not only…

Jimmy Fallon’s Whisper Game Challenge Done Right

Since Jimmy Fallon has become a dad, he’s had some pretty amazing spoofs, jokes, pictures, and stories.  One of his challenges he has set out for expecting parents (and even as just a fun game) is “The Whisper Challenge”.  In this game, one person wears noise cancelling headphones, and tries to figure out what the other person is saying. This couple decided to challenge their parents with their pregnancy announcement.  This is super cute.  I mean, I had to go…

6 Things I learned at MiLK – an Infant Feeding Conference

Today I was able to take part in attending MiLK – an infant feeding conference put on by the lovely ladies of MommyCon. It was a first for me, as I’ve never really attended a learning conference about a topic so near and dear to my heart. I mean, when you have your first born, you take the delivery classes, and maybe even a CPR class…and you just might also take a class on breastfeeding.   But what you don’t learn…

I just got through watching this fabulously motivating speech by wrestler Marc Mero.  You are first taken…

6 Things My Single Self Apologized To My Mommy Self For

I wrote this article as a guest post on Daddy Doin’ Work. But I thought I’d also post it here because it’s just so awesome. 😉 You know you’ve done it before kids – rolling your eyes at parents whose kids are having a tantrum in the middle of Toys R Us, playground, or in the middle of a restaurant while they simply sit there and watch. You think to yourself, “Why isn’t that parent doing anything about it?!” Fast forward years…

6 Things I Learned From Jenni Pulos

I am a firm believer of being in the right place at the right time….AND…being where you’re supposed to be… that was definitely the case for meeting Jenni Pulos up close in person at her book signing for “Grin and Bear It” sponsored by UPPABaby. I was there with my co-founding partner Ali Landry from Favored.by (my mobile app, yay!) and not only met the wonderful Jenni Pulos…but also had almost a cosmic connection with her. Some how our wonderful…

Manicure In A Jar

Well, I wanted to post this before Mother’s Day, but I didn’t want to break the surprise to my sisters of what I had done for them (as they are awesome supporters of my blog! Thanks you guys!). So hopefully you can use this for a future Mother’s Day gift or cute birthday or shower gift idea. For Mother’s Day I made them each a Manicure In a Jar, and also a few Kisses In A Jar. I basically purchased…
