With Valentine’s Day coming up I thought I’d share a few gift ideas from a couple of my favorite stores. Here are some ideas for him, her and even the kiddos! For Him: – Chocolate Tool Set – You+Me Mug – I Love Us (Fill…
AHHHH… WE ARE GETTING SO CLOSE TO D DATE! I can’t believe it.
Some days it feels as if I’ve been pregnant forever and other days it feels like I just found out. Personally, I think pregnancy is so weird and the entire process is something I have always struggled with but the outcome makes it all worth it. And even though I’ve done this twice before, I still panic and have anxiety whenever it’s finally time to pack the dreaded hospital bag. I don’t know about all of you but the lists I’ve seen online lately that are supposed to be “helpful”, just seem extreme to me. So I thought I’d create and share my own list for anyone who just wants the essentials like me. So here is a list, with some links for help, of what you should pack for mom, dad and baby!
(first things first, grab a prettttty big bag! You’re about to have more than you can carry leaving the hospital anyway, no need to put everything in multiple bags.)
Glasses/Extra Contacts (Contact Solution if you don’t use dailies)
Makeup & Moisturizer
Comfy Slip on Shoes
The next few are optional depending on if you plan to nurse:
(DON’T FORGET TO PUT THE CARSEAT IN THE CAR DAD! LOL HELP YA WIFE OUT!)
Phone Charger (let’s be real, no one likes to share)
Snacks (side note: I just love the word snacks, haha)
A change of clothes if Dad can stay!
Men’s PJ Pants
Second most important item for dad to bring:
A Push Gift for Mom (This is just an example!)
Welcome Home Outfit
(Bring this extra bag just incase you’re stopping anywhere before you go home! It should be filled with the typical baby bag essentials! Look out for another blog post on what goes in your diaper bag soon!)
I know it seems like a lot but I truly stuck to the basics. It only took me about ten minutes to pack and when I was done I felt like I was forgetting things because packing just never seems that easy. Hope this helps some of you mamas out there! Good luck when you’re on your way to the hospital!
Ever since Robb and I announced we were expecting EVERYONE has been asking us, “DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR HAVING?!” Which is to be expected I guess. The generation were living in has normalized finding out the sex of your baby and throwing some sort…
Everyone has their own skin care and make up routine that they swear by. For awhile I struggled finding the items that worked best for me and my skin type. A lot of things would either make me break out, further dry out my skin or make blemishes appear worse than they really were. It’s so important and has helped me so much to figure out what skin type I have and start spending money on products that actually helped. If it wasn’t enough for us females to already have to worry about all that; we also have to deal with making sure we don’t further damage our hair after getting it dyed/highlighting it. We all know breakage can happen so easy with those really cheap products. Some things are definitely worth saving a buck on, but your skin and hair are definitely not apart of those things. Therefore, I thought I would share the things I LOVE and use daily. These things are going to range from my face wash, moisturizer, make up, shampoo and more. Let me know what you guys think and if you use any of the same things, or even or different things, and love them!

HOLY MOLEY! Guys… It has been so long! But, like I once said, I will always blog at my own pace. Although, next time I promise it won’t be so long. Not to mention, my laptop kind of crapped the bed for a minute and I just got it back recently. (I was slacking to have it fixed considering everything else that’s going on.)
