Baby Dickey 3 and 4?!

Well, it has been awhile! What have we been doing over at the Dickey home?! We’ve kept busy, that’s for sure. My husband and I spent 9 days traveling around Alaska, which was INCREDIBLE. We went for our 30th birthdays and our 7th wedding anniversary (all occur within about a month). That’ll have to be for another post, but it was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime type of trip.

We had a great summer with the kids. They each took a week-long dance camp (Ryan’s was more hip hop style and Rebecca’s was more like

The Urbini Emi Travel System

We already knew we were fans of the Urbini brand of baby gear because we loved the lightweight Hummingbird stroller. So when I had a chance to review the Urbini Emi Travel System, I couldn’t wait to check it out. If Urbini made an “umbrella” stroller with all the great features of a full-size, how would they make the actual full-size stroller even better?!

Team Spirit with LilFan: licensed booster seats (coupon & giveaway)

Living in northern Illinois, I’m not sure I have any choice but to be a Chicago Cubs fan! I was never that into baseball until I met my husband. We spent our first year of college at different universities, two hours apart. One way we stayed connected between visits was by cheering on the Cubbies. Now it’s something fun we can pass to our kids, too. Go Cubs, Go!

LilFan has a whole line of licensed products including booster seats, diaper bags, and seat protectors. They have licenses with the NFL, MLB, NHL,

Teaching Your Kids About Drugs and Alcohol

Post contributed by Amanda G.

There is a lot of debate out there about the best time to start teaching your kids about drugs and alcohol. Some parents believe it is best not to scare younger kids and that teaching them about stranger danger is enough; that it is better to wait until kids are older, like middle school aged, to start teaching them about drinking, drugs, the dangers of addiction, etc.

Guess what: by the time your kids are heading off to junior high school, most of them have already been exposed, at

Do you have ‘comfort socks?’ Gold Toe Oh. So. Soft.

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Gold Toe. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Two of my favorite memories of my Grandpa are related to socks. Maybe that’s why I love my collection of socks so much, but I’ll take a gift of them any day! Even in the summer, especially because my husband keeps the house too cold for me, cozy and soft socks are the best.

My grandpa used to ALWAYS

Pregnancy Tests: newly redesigned First Response Early Detection

I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for First Response. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

The moment you find out you’re pregnant is probably a moment you’ll always remember. Maybe you even took a photo of the positive pregnancy test, a memento to store in the baby book. I have pictures of both of my positive pregnancy tests!

The first time I got pregnant, it just took one test. It was very clearly positive, but I was also about
