Father’s Day Gift

It is hard to believe that this Father’s Day our family will be celebrating with two babies!  My daughter is two years old and my son was just born a few days ago.  We weren’t expecting our little bundle of joy this early, but so happy we will be able to celebrate with him!

This year, I decided to give my husband his Father’s Day gift early.  After I took my daughter to choose a card for her daddy, she told him all about it.  It was hard not to laugh as she told her daddy about the monster card she picked out and how I helped her put her hand print on it.  After that, I figured it was time to open his gift!



I wanted to surprise my husband with a unique gift this Father’s Day.  After searching and searching for the best gifts for men, I came across Jord watches.  I knew it would be perfect for him!  The details on their wood watch collections are stunning!  Definitely a one-of-a-kind watch!  They offer a variety of styles, for men and women.







My husband absolutely loved the Dover series in zebrawood & dark sandalwood.  He liked it’s uniqueness, the color, the details of the watch, it is unlike any other watch.  Since wearing it, he’s received numerous compliments.

PinkBlush Maternity + Giveaway

PinkBlush Maternity

I  have teamed up with PinkBlush Maternity and couldn’t be more excited!  They have countless options for maternity dresses, that are all so gorgeous.  I fell in love with this floral maxi dress.  I can safely say, that even at almost 37 weeks pregnant, this dress is still extremely comfortable.  Perfect to accommodate any size bump.  It fits great and I love the floral details.  I also like the fact that it’ll be perfect for nursing once baby is here.

PinkBlush also offers a selection of non-maternity clothing and accessories.

I have also partnered up with PinkBlush  to give one of my lucky reader’s a $75 gift card to their amazing store!

My Hospital Bag (2nd time around)

Just hit week 36!  Only a few weeks shy from meeting our baby boy.  It’s hard to imagine that almost 3 years ago my hospital bag was filled with pink, purple, bows, and tutus.   Now, all I see in it is blue and green!  I keep hearing how different it will be with a boy and I honestly couldn’t be any more excited to experience it first hand.   The truth is, I’ve had my hospital bag packed since I was 30 weeks pregnant!  Just a tad bit early.

This time, I packed  lighter than the first time around.  I know what my essentials are and what I can do without.  Here is a sneak peak of my hospital bag.

For Mommy:

  • slippers
  • shower sandals
  • socks
  • nursing bra/nursing camis
  • comfy clothes
  • toiletry items and makeup
  • lip balm
  • lotion
  • belly wrap/bandit

For Baby:

  • change of clothes
  • receiving blanket
  • nursing pillow
  • going home outfit
  • mittens
  • burp cloths
  • hat
  • socks
  • baby book (visitors can sign and you can get baby’s foot/handprint)
  • cars seat

For Daddy:

  • phone + pharger
  • camera + charger
  • snacks
  • gift for big sister from baby

As far as the necessities post-birth (diapers, pads, mesh undies, and nursing pads) our hospital provides all of that so less to worry about when it comes to packing.

 Next time I post we’ll be a family of 4!  I cannot wait to hold my little bundle of joy.

What did all my fellow mamas pack in your hospital bag?
