aden + anais Baby Boy Blog Shower *Giveaway & Review*

aden + anais Baby Boy Blog Shower *Giveaway & Review*

***This Giveaway is now CLOSED congrats to Stacy who won***
So I know that my Baby Boy Blog Shower is actually ending this week for the most part, but after I initially put this up as just a review I was contacted by the company offering to do a giveaway as well–Yey for you!!! So consider this a little bonus perk that’s extending the party! 😀
When Amber was born and the nurses brought her to us all swaddled up I’ll never forget Bob calling her things like “taco baby” and “little burrito” lol! It was so cute to see her all snuggled up! It’s also amazing just how much newborns love swaddling and how it manages to make them calm down. I didn’t swaddle Amber as much as I would have liked to once we got home from the hospital because most of the blankets I had didn’t seem very condusive to it.
That’s why I was so excited to recieve Paparazzi Swaddle (how cute is that name?) from aden + anais! The blankets are made of 100% muslin cotton which makes them super soft but nice and light and breathable. Since Tyler is going to be born in the middle of July, it will be really important that he doesn’t get overheated! I know that these will be absolutely perfect to take care of that, and can’t wait to see how beyond adorable our next little “taco baby” will look all swaddled up and snug in these adorable prints!
aden + anais carries all sorts of other great items too like sleeping bags, burpy bibs, and towel sets. I’m looking forward to trying out more of their amazing products in the future!
One lucky reader will win their own 4 pack from the Classic Muslin Collection-your choice of print!

So pretty

So pretty

After a crazy busy weekend Amber decided I needed to be pampered by getting my hair done. She worked very hard at it because, she told me, there were lots of “rats”! But she promised it wouldn’t “hurt more”.
As she smoothed my hair over my face she kept exclaiming “So pretty!” “So nice!”
As you can see–I was truly a knockout when she finished. Perhaps I have a future beautician on my hands?

The Bridgegrooms by Allison Pitman *Review*

I’ve always been the kind of person who can usually guess what will happen at the end of a book or movie. With “chick flick” books (as I like to call them) it’s usually pretty easy to know who is going to end up with […]

Earth Day Ideas ~ Using Bottle Caps!

  So I’m not what you’d call a “liberal feminist tree hugging hippie”. In fact I’m pretty much at the other end of the spectrum, lol. People who put “the creation above the Creator” irritate me to no end. However I do not think that means anyone […]
