So in case you haven't noticed, and hopefully you did, I have been gone a long time. As in nearly a year. What happened? A lot! Let me catch you up a bit. I became a full time working mom! So my time was dominated by a 9-5, and life got a lot busier. Sunshine adjusted better than I expected. I think the transition was easier for her than it was for me. She also weaned herself last summer. I was sad to see our breastfeeding time come to an end. I honestly can't even remember when she stopped or … [Read more...]

#ImagineSpring with OshKosh B’gosh! Oh and there’s a #coupon . . .

**I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’Gosh. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.** When I saw the signs go up for our new local OshKosh B'gosh and Carter's store I was so excited! They're my two favorite places to shop for new clothes for Sunshine. I have a certain loyalty to OshKosh since I wore OshKosh as a child.

What to do when your toddler ruins Comic Con . . .

What to do when your toddler ruins Comic Con  by: Amanda Logan   Step One: Breathe. It’s probably not actually all that bad. Really. I was given a free ticket to Comic Con when a friend (Granolaish!) won them for the weekend. Since my husband was planning on helping a friend move, it was just going to be me heading up there and since he was planning on helping friends move, it made the most sense for me to have the toddler in tow. I took the stroller and planned to take our mei tai … [Read more...]

My New Nail Obsession: Jamberry!

**I received Jamberry nail products in order to facilitate this review. My opinions are honest and my own.** All About Jamberry Over the years I've had to face to harsh truth that my nails are not the best. I damaged them permanently when I was a tween with acrylic manicures. The dremel tool left permanent ridges in my nails due to cuticle damage. So, as an adult, my only options for manicures tend to be gel polish. While gel polish is awesome, it's time consuming and can be expensive. I … [Read more...]
