As the end of last school year approached, I dreamt of adventures galore. No more drop-off and pick-up lines. No more battle of the wills as I went back and forth with my daughter in the mornings. It would be glorious!!
And then reality set in.
The truth is I was in my last trimester of pregnancy and utterly exhausted. We had just moved, my girls were exhibiting lots of “testing” behavior due to all the transitions, and I was constantly torn between my desire to get out with them and simply wanting to nest and rest.
All in all we made the most of it and everyone had a good time. Of course the highlight was welcoming our baby girl, and school started a couple weeks later.
Honestly, this mama rejoiced! I absolutely, positively miss my big girl when she’s in school, but her going back has helped me find more of a rhythm (definitely still working on that), and if I’m lucky I can spend a little time during the day celebrating with my new favorite kind of bubbly!
This diaper bag was gifted to me by Lily Jade, but the opinions are completely honest and my own.
Days before I delivered my 3rd daughter last month, I realized I was still missing a few key items off my baby list. One of which was a diaper bag.
When I thought back to the bag I used for my other children I knew I wanted something very different. Don’t get me wrong, it got the job done, but as functional as it was it totally lacked in style. I love purses and bags and thought about how nice it would be to have something that served a purpose while being pretty too. Enter the beautiful, and dare I say, luxurious, Meggan in Brandy and Gold from Lily Jade!

What happened to summer vacation? We are just a few days away from the new school year, and whether you’re holding onto to these last moments of freedom and fun, or counting down until your kiddos get back to their regular studies, preparations must be made!
I’m feeling pretty good about the fact that I’ve already purchased the school supplies my daughter will need, but there’s a major part of the process I really want to better plan for.
My child will continue to bring food from home like she did last year, but thanks to Sistema® I’ll be able to stay organized while preparing quick, healthy meals.Read More

I don’t know about you, but my favorite part of back to school shopping has always been the clothes! I have fond memories of starting out the school year with a special trip to the mall or clothing store of choice with my dad, and I’m excited to be able to do the same for my girls.
My oldest starts school next week and is entering the first grade. I wanted to make sure she had clothes she loved that were stylish and cute, but also affordable, durable, and versatile for the new school year.
One of our favorite stores is Carter’s (especially having a new baby), and I was thrilled to discover that they now have a Carter’s KID line!
