If I'm honest with myself, I didn't love being pregnant.  I wasn't sure if I had a maternal bone in my body, so pregnancy (and a baby) was something that had to grow on me (no pun intended).  I did end up embracing my pregnancy, but it took a while.  And by "a while" I mean approximately 8...
So my final installment of Sweatsuit Alternatives debuted today on Rookie Moms.  I focused on an easy, Audrey Hepburn inspired look for the final sweatsuit alternative.  NOTE:  I love the comments from Rookie Mom readers on this look - they are completely right!  If you are a very busty gal, skip the turtleneck and instead try a black cowl-neck...
If you weren't convinced, in last week's guest post on Rookie Moms, to trade in your sweatsuit, Rookie Moms and Ain't No Mom Jeans have again teamed up with another sweatsuit alternative. For those of you chanting, "Die, Sweatsuit, Die!" right along with me, you'll appreciate what Rookie Mom Whitney called my "anti-sweatsuit rant".  Love that.  For the rest of you...
I was so honored to be asked by the very fabulous Rookie Mom bloggers, Whitney and Heather, to write an article for Rookie Moms on three fashionable (yet comfortable) sweatsuit alternatives.  My first suggestion debuted today!   Go check it out here:  Sweatsuit Alternatives Part 1.  The second part of this article will be published sometime next week.If you...
One of my pet peeves as a mom is that every company designing items for baby seems to think that babies require bright colors, happy faces, and perky puppies/kittens/trucks/flowers on everything.  So I have to wonder:  do these people even have children?  My son can't be the only kid who is completely obsessed with my plain-Jane car keys...
I believe that I, S, have found the secret to fabulous, shiny hair:  get pregnant.  The problem with that philosophy is that it eventually ends.  No matter how long you breastfeed, your hormones eventually stabilize, while your fabulous hair falls out and goes back to it's normal dull, limp, frizzy state.  (I should know - I've been testing the...
I'm a huge Envirosax bag fan. They are lightweight, durable, and come in the best patterns and colors (my current favorite, pictured left, is from their Planet Green line).  I always keep at least one in my diaper bag, lest I should ever find myself in Whole Foods without an environmentally friendly way to transport my groceries.  The...
I had a good day today.  After Mike came home, he took the babe, and I went out to do errands for my summer trip home.  I ended up in Gap Body, looking at bikinis, which are currently on sale for a mere $5 - $12 a piece.  So of course I had to try some on.  I was...
This is one my favorite books and it makes a lovely gift for Father's Day from your little one.  Daddy Loves Me , by Karen Moore, is about this super cool Dad who does all kinds of fun (and even helpful) activities with his kiddo.  From buying "special treats" at the fruit stand (amazing . . . not cookies or candy) to popping the bubbles while WASHING the...
Because we were relying on swaddling as a method to keep our sanity in those early days, we wasted a ton of money trying every swaddling blanket under the sun. We tried various sleep sacks (too roomy - he'd wake too early), "miracle" swaddling blankets (too thick, too hot) and an assortment of others (most were the wrong size and he would wiggle out, or they would cover his face). Then we discovered Aden + Anais.
