Starlight Stitches Maxaloones

I’m excited to announce I’m one of the new “Brand Ambassadors” for Starlight Stitches, an amazing work at home mom brand. I’ve been using her products with my daughter pretty much since birth, and I have always been impressed with the quality of the products and the amazing customer service I’ve received.

A Glimpse in Our Life: Up and Down

We flew. On a plane. And lived to see another day. To be fair, Belly Monster has flown before, and it was the Flight of Champions: DC to India. But we now know that a long flight with a one year old and an 18 month old are somehow completely different beasts. It wasn’t nap … Continue reading

Unpaper Towels

I guess once we entered the wild world of cloth diapers, it was inevitable more reusable products would enter our lives.

So while my MOH probably knows … Continue reading

Wedding Planning Can Be Horrible…..

…..luckily, there are the interwebs to hold your hand. I found this list on Offbeat Bride of one bride’s 5 “ah-ha!” moments with wedding planning.  It’s a great list, and I agree with most of them.  But even more useful – check out the comments!  It’s like a dumping ground of everything you would ever … Continue reading
