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,

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

NEW: super lightweight stroller by Urbini!

I’ve tested out my fair share of strollers, checked out my friends’ and read plenty about all of them. I’m a big fan of lightweight strollers that are easy to throw (literally) into the car in a hurry. They’re for those quick trips or when your kid might want to walk most of the time, but you bring a stroller “just in case.” What if you could have that SUPER lightweight stroller AND some fancy features of a full-size one?

Canvas prints of the kids for our new office

I love taking photos of the kids and we have professional family photos taken at least once a year. I upload them to my computer and most of the time that’s where they sit. If I’m on top of things (I’m not.) they get uploaded to Facebook for friends and family to see or I use some in a blog post… but I want them printed and displayed in our home!

I love canvas prints because they add a special touch to your photo wall—something different to stand out from printed photos. And the

Babywearing, Breastfeeding, & Cloth Diapers–OH MY! Products at ABC

This is my first post about the ABC Kids Expo I attended in Kentucky two weeks ago. There was SO MUCH to see, it was a little overwhelming. There were the brands and people I’ve worked with before that I wanted to meet, finally, face-to-face. There were the products I use and I wanted to meet the brands and tell them how much I love them. There were the new brands I’ve never heard of and the products I’ve never seen that I wanted to learn about. Miles of booths! I naively

the baby product we can’t leave the house without

I have had the unique opportunity to try out lots of different baby products. Seats, swings, bouncers, mats, playpens, strollers, you name it. While we do have many favorites and products that do get used every day, there is one we always return to and one that usually leaves the house with us.

The BabyBjorn Babysitter Balance.

They categorize it as a bouncer. My husband calls it a seat. I call it a life-saver. Regardless, I think “babysitter” is the perfect name! Now, of course Rebecca gets held
