366 Project: Week 15

I did mention last week that I was in a constant state of "behind" right with posting my 366 project weekly updates?!  So here we are with Week 15 but a week late again so if you want to catch up on Week 14's pictures, you can view them here!   Week 15: April 8-14 Day 99 (April 8): It was Easter today!  We went to church and she got to take some photos with the Easter bunny...we're still waiting for those photos from our friend.  This was her dancing in the living room in her cute little Easter dress before church, she was enjoying swaying around in her dress!  She actually really likes to dance but is selective about what she dances to.  She doesn't dance to every song being played but only certain ones.  I will have to start paying more attention to what type of music she dances more to!  She has this sneaky little smile on her face too-so cute!  Actually she always has this crooked, side smile but I don't … [Read more...]

VannyBean Organic Baby Boutique Review

If you haven't already heard of them, I have a new place for you all to discover! VannyBean is a new online organic baby boutique and they even carry some accessories for moms (technically, all women)! They are not like big box stores in so many ways.  It's nice knowing that a store has taken the guess work out of whether or not an item is made with quality ingredients/materials, if they're eco-friendly, if they're organic, etc.  It's clear that they only choose brands and products that meet those standards! At VannyBean we passionately care about the simple beauty of childhood, about setting a positive example for our children by using eco-friendly products without compromising style, and finding perfect mother and baby items for gifts or everyday that reflect positively on our environment. We believe in creating a quality of life that allows expression of style, harmony and balance and strive to provide earth friendly options that achieve this … [Read more...]

Nursing Saga Part III- Nursing & Maternity Essentials: HOTmilk Review

HotMilk Sweetheart Nightie So the saga continues...if you haven't had a chance to read the Nursing Saga Part II: Helpful Resources or Nursing Saga Part I: Breastpumps, you can click the links to read them now!  You can't share about nursing and not talk about an essential nursing component...nursing bras and sleepwear!  I have to say, I always had a hard time finding good quality and supportive bras even pre-pregnancy but when I started was even worse!  I had gone to different cookie cutter maternity stores and department stores like Nordstroms and Motherhood to try to find nursing gear and quickly realized that there weren't very many options out there.  I bought two bras from Motherhood Maternity and of course I was measured incorrectly in the store and both the bras proved to be super uncomfortable and not very supportive.  One bra stated it was "wireless" but what I realized was it did not say it was … [Read more...]

2012 Ultimate Blog Party

Welcome to all of you visiting form the 2012 Ultimate Blog Party!  You all know I love throw parties and to party so it of course peaked my interest when I saw Ultimate Blog Party to have Journey of A Kangaroo Mama participate in it!   You can read about "My Story" by clicking the link or you can also read a little more about me on the Journeying With A Friend posting where I shared with my 100 Comments Tour blogger friends a little bit about myself and my blog!  You can also read about the story behind my blog name on Origins of the Name posting. But things change in life as we all know too well, so there are things that have already changed since I've written either of those postings (which tells me I need to update the "My Story" page because Kiggster is no longer 1 years old)! I feel like I am many things: Daughter of God, Wife, Mama, daughter, sister, friend, super-amateur crafter, wanna-be photographer, bad cook, paper collector, … [Read more...]

366 Project: Week 14

  If you've not had a chance to look at the Week 13 photos, you can see them here!  I think I'm caught up now right?!  Now I just need to make sure I post Week 15 soon so I don't fall behind again, though I think I'll be in a constant state of "behind!" Week 14: April 1-7 Day 92 (April 1): It was April Fool's Day today, did anyone play any mean or funny pranks on anyone?!  I couldn't think of any and didn't even have time to execute any even if I had some ideas. Well, I did think about doing mashed potatoes and gravy that looked like an ice cream sundae (it's been on the prank list for about 2 years now) but didn't have any of the ingredients or time to execute it!  Next year!  But besides April Fool's day, it was also my grandmother's 89th birthday!  So there was a big birthday bash for her that night to celebrate...probably 60+ people there, should have been 89 right?!  Kiggster … [Read more...]
