As I document year after year, I am a bit obsessed with family holiday cards. (See the ones I actually sent out in 2011.) I love receiving them, so I feel obligated to send them. This isn’t an obligation I resent, actually. I look forward to selecting them and mailing them out. I realize MANY people […]

This post was sponsored by Well Beginnings. I want to thank Well Beginnings for inviting me to experience their new diaper line at a daytime party filled with happy babies and holiday treats. This early Christmas party got me thinking about the joys and stresses of having a brand new baby at the holidays! So, […]
Recently I received a teal Trendy Nursing Tank Top from Udderly Hot Mama to review. It comes in four colors. This is a great nursing and pumping tank. It’s long, so you can tuck it in, ruche it, or wear it with a belt. I styled my teal version in it two different ways. For work […]

While I was choosing my organic applesauce at the grocery store, I ran into Superhero Andrea, and she asked me for some good suggestions for what to feed toddlers. In fact, she asked me if I had anything on my blog about it already, which made me think I should write a little something — […]

This coffee table book, whose sale proceeds will go towards Every Mother Counts, is filled with highly stylized photographs of painted pregnant […]
Wanna just buy one outright? I don’t blame you, I got tired just writing about all these awesome projects. Three super cute (gender-neutral) play kitchens on amazon are Melissa & Doug’s wooden kitchen (more compact) and Kid Craft red retro (more deluxe, also comes in turquoise!!) or this stainless set just like modern times. I also encourage […]
I have what is frequently called “one of each”. That is, my two children are two different genders. Sometimes I cannot suppress my desire to gift them matching outfits, but it’s not easy to source these things. Old Navy does not release the same print across all their sizes categories at the same time. Believe […]
Thanks to BabyBjӧrn for sending Karen a Baby Carrier One Outdoors just in time for her trip to Malaysia and Bali with a six-month old. I have two young kids, but we are not really a stroller kind of family. We live on a very steep hill in busy San Francisco and there are lots […]
Blue Apron makes a date night for new parents way easier. They pick and pack your ingredients. You just chop and dance around the kitchen with your mate. Aw
I love to drool over design magazines and blogs, but as I am entirely too practical and cheap to buy any of the items pictured, I have never sought out any of the items depicted. My house is mostly driven by color, as paint is more affordable than furniture. One of my local blogging friends, Reichel […]
