The Ultimate “Push Present!” (Juno Lucina diamond pendant giveaway)

I had never heard of a “push present” until I was pregnant with Ryan. The tradition has been around for ages–a gift given by the father of the baby to the mother to mark the occasion of having a baby. I know what some of you are thinking–isn’t the baby the gift?!

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.

We’re having a hard time decided what exactly to get–an upgraded version of our current phone? or something entirely new? It’s so easy to stick to what you know and what you’re used to, but I decided to do some research on other phones to see if there’s something better out there!

I have friends that LOVE their Droids, so I did some research on the Read More…

Tailgating with Ryan (& Wisk!)

Football season = tailgating time!!! Look at my little tailgater ready for a cookout 🙂 If you remember my previous post where Ryan was my little scientist that helped me get a grass stain out with the NEW Wisk… today we attempted to get a ketchup stain out!

Prepping for some yummy burgers, Ryan gets ketchup all over his new shirt! AH! Have no fear, Wisk is here! (I’m totally corny, I know.) So I take the shirt off Ryan before it ends up EVERYWHERE
