Breastfeeding Tips & Inspiration

I often hear so many stories about mothers getting discouraged when it comes to breastfeeding. There are also numerous articles talking about how difficult it is. As if there aren’t enough articles telling pregnant women and mothers to be afraid and unconfident. While breastfeeding isn’t exactly as Ali Wong described her expectations, “I thought it was supposed to be this…

Gift Ideas For Coffee Lovers

I’m admitting it, I’m one of those basic white chicks who act like loving coffee is a personality trait! But let’s be real, I don’t have a personality so let me pretend coffee is.

Fun Dishes For Kids & Babies

As an adult, it drives me crazy to have mismatching dishes! I like for all of my glasses to match, (Joel and I fight about him wanting to save every jar to drink out of). I also like for all of my plates and bowls to be the same color and shape. Kids dishes on the other hand are so…

Valentines Day Gifts For Babies

In my opinion, babies are pretty easy to shop for! The younger they are the less personal interests they have haha! It’s such a fun time to buy things that YOU like and dress your baby the way you want to. I always tell people, the first year is about what the parent likes. We get to pick the first…

Valentines Day Gifts For Kids

I don’t know about you but I am not a mushy lovey-dovey person. I love my husband a ton, but I’m just not a super romantic person. As a teenager, I was always bummed if I didn’t have a boyfriend for Valentines Day. As an adult, I no longer see Valentines Day as a romantic holiday. To me, it is…

$100 Weekly Grocery Haul (Family of 3 1/2)!

At almost 26 years old, I finally decided to start being a real adult. Joel and I looked at our monthly spending habits and were shocked! We couldn’t believe how much money we were spending on food, (and Starbucks). We were spending $200+ on groceries every week, while also eating out. Our Starbucks consumption was also a daily habit. With…
