I still can’t believe my daughter is turning THREE next month. Time flies. I had the vision of throwing the cutest mermaid party at our beach house but I was told “NO” (you know every toddler’s favorite word). Once my little one requested a “Toy Story Birthday Party,” my heart melted and there was a change of plans.
One thing about me is my love for paper products, especially invitations and greeting cards. I always end up supporting small businesses I find out Etsy. I find the most unique and cutest designs. This year, I asked my good friend & etsy shop owner, Forget Me Knot Invitations. I sent my ideas, and she came back with the cutest design. I immediately said YES, and off to the printer was my Daughter’s 3rd Birthday invitation!
I love the red banana bow embellishment. It makes the “Toy Story” theme a little girly. To finish the invitation, the store owner and I both loved the idea of using kraft colored envelopes. And of course, I had to get matching stamps I found on Zazzle.com! I hope our family loves the invitations as much as we do!
Check out Forget Me Knot Invitations on Etsy or Facebook! They do custom designs too!
A big thank you to Under The EverGreen for our custom made ballerina necklace! You can find their shop on etsy HERE!
It’s so fun to watch my daughter’s growing interest in all things fashion. She loves anything with a “big tutu”…including ballerinas of course!
‘Tis the season for winter sleep suits! The temperatures have already hit below freezing & if you’re anything like me, you prefer to sleep with the window cracked open for some fresh air. However, I can’t always rely on my toddler staying warm under the blanket. Luckily, ergoPouch sent me some of their newest SleepSuits for my daughter! First of all, I love that the company is Australian (I studied a semester abroad in College) and I would love to travel back down under one day. Secondly, I love how the SleepSuit converts from a sleeping bag to a sleep suit with legs using 4 way zippers. And third, their designs are so cute!
ergoPouch offers a diverse range of fashion forward, high quality baby swaddles, sleeping bags and sleep suits made from breathable natural fibres including organic cotton, bamboo and merino. We all know babies sleep better in natural fibres for the simple reason that they improve breathability and keep a little one’s body at an even temperature. ergoPouch is perfect for all seasons without the need for blankets. Whether you’re swaddling a newborn or have a toddler on the move (like me), there is an ergoPouch to give your family a safe and comfortable night’s sleep.
Just check out below how happy my daughter looks waking up in her sleep suit! She fits perfectly in their Sleepsuit Bag (8-24 month sizing), and we love the pink Dandelion color. I can’t wait to gift some of their products to my new mommy friends.
The holidays are my favorite time of year! I love the season of giving, the smell of a Christmas Tree, fresh cookies out of the oven, holiday movies, and classic Christmas music playing throughout the house all through the month of December.
Most of the favorite childhood memories are filled with Christmas traditions and memories. Now as a parent, I want my daughter to experience those big moments to make her holiday season just as special! Some of our new family traditions include picking out a real Christmas tree as a family, the holiday light show at Macy’s, Franklin Square & Shadybrook Farms, and hosting Christmas Eve dinner with our extended family!
For 10 days, from December 1 – December 10, across stores nationwide, Gymboree will give wonder to the season by gifting their customers a holiday memory in the making. When customers visit in-store, they will receive a scratcher at checkout. The scratcher might inspire family game night with a Mattel Prize Pack of Uno, Apples to Apples and Pictionary plus $50 to for Gymmies to outfit the evening! Or perhaps, a gift basket of Mrs. Fields Cookies – sweet treats for Santa! Or, a mid-holiday shopping trip treat with a Free Auntie Anne’s Classic Pretzel. Two lucky customers will be treated to their next holiday vacation, with a Club Med all-inclusive family vacation. Every scratcher will reveal a special surprise, One Big Happy Wonderland!
Gymboree helped inspire this year’s visit to Franklin Square to see their holiday light spectacular! From Kennedy’s glitter boots to her winter white hat, I will always remember this holiday look. Kennedy looked like a white princess, sparkling as she walked thru the light show. Kennedy
