It takes all of the stress away of searching for that perfect gift. incrediBundles is a place where you can get one of their bundles or create your own. These bundles range from diaper bundles, sleep bundles, bath bundles or creating your own. 

My kiddos were so excited when our incrediBundles arrived at our door. We decided to "create your own." We included stackable learning blocks, "Goodnight Moon", the stuffed bunny from the book and also am adorable whale that helps make bath time a lot easier! 

Soon to be moms can never have too many diapers. You can easily head over to www.incredibundles.com and get the "Diaper Bundle" and have it sent right to them! And for those birthday parties- as a mom myself I can tell you about the over abundance of toys that live at our house!

Summer Favorites with PinkBlush



(Thanks to the hubs for capturing my "Kate Middleton Mom Moment" right here)


Dress: here

Happy Friday Friends,
I've been totally out of the blogging loop for about a week. The kiddies being out of school for summer has totally thrown me off and we are trying to find our schedule. I have lots of fun things coming to the blog next week so I think we will be back in our groove! 

A couple of weeks ago I saw Amber from Barefoot Blonde post an Instagram story and she had a dress similar to this one from Pink Blush. As soon as I saw her story I thought to myself how much I loved the style of it. Sometime's I still panic about loner dresses. Being only 5'2 (unless it's a Maxi) tend to make me look even shorter. 

I started shopping around Pink Blush for a few dresses for a couple of beach trips we have planned this summer. I came across this blue and white stripped one and immediately feel in love but was a little hesitant because of course its a little long. I decided to go for it- when it came in I tried it one and realized this is probably going to be my favorite dress this summer! 

You can find this exact dress here. It's so comfortable and perfect for those summer days trying to chase around your babies. Pink Blush is perfect for non mamas, mamas, expecting mamas, and you can find some great nursing friendly ones. Stayed tuned, because tomorrow I'm sharing ANOTHER one of my favorite Pink Blush finds for summer. It's to die for!

Beach Bag Essentials

Cheers Dears!



Beach trips are always so fun and most of the time relaxing. Just do like we did and bring your babysitter along with you! I always struggle when it comes to packing beach bags.  When I was just packing one for myself it was easy. Throw in a towel, a good book and some sunscreen and I was good to go. 

Having two kiddos to also pack for changes the game just a little bit. You have to make sure you have all of the essentials or you can find yourself hiking back to the condo to get something with babies in tow. I've linked a few of our beach bag must have's down below! 
My posting has been a little crazy lately- we are trying to adjust with the kids being out of school and getting on a summer routine. When we return from the beach I'll be back to our daily blogging! 

I hope you all have a great week!
