Last year September, I posted about Just Between Friend's (JBF) Fall sale and I scored so many wonderful things from it! JBF has 2 sales a year, a spring and a fall sale, this year's spring sale will be starting March 6th-9th. Why try to drive around town looking for good garage sales with no guarantee they will have good quality children's items for sale. Why not just head to JBF and know there will be tons of good quality children's clothes, toys, furniture, books, and even maternity items. When I was at the last sale, there were items from newborn through size 14 in kids for both genders! There was so much to buy and tons of things that I wish I had waited until the JBF sale to buy! The exact same potty bench that I had for Kiggster at home and spent some pretty pennies on was on sale for less than half what I paid for and it was in excellent condition. I got a lot of new (yup, even new stuff) items for Kiggster like an … [Read more...]
2013 is the Year of the Snake and I was born during the year of the Dog. What is your Chinese zodiac sign?! Since Chinese New Year (or as others know it, Asian New Year or Lunar New Year) is on Sunday, February 10th, there are tons of things to do and prepare...and even tons of things on the DO NOT do list! I pick and choose the things that I like during this time because I don't want Kiggster to lose her culture but I also know I can't keep up with all the traditions (though with some things, I see them more as superstition but depending on who you talk to, you could get a different answer)! Mostly I do things for fun and I want it to be that way for Kiggster too as she learns about her culture. So, ever wonder why during CNY (Chinese New Year), if you walk through Chinatown, you see a pattern between all the stores, vendors, and homes?! Below is a cliff notes version of some of the things that could help you get one step closer to understanding … [Read more...]
I actually was looking for a baby wash for Kiggster that wasn't filled with tons of chemicals or junk and that's how I got to trying Miessence's Sunflower Body Wash. What I didn't expect was how much I'd love it for me too. I knew it was something that was meant for the whole family and great for babies as a bath wash product but I am one that is sometimes stuck in her ways and since I already had a ton of body washes, I was just getting it was Kiggster in mind. I was very wrong! This bottle actually started out towards the edge of the bathtub because that's where I could reach it best while giving Kiggster a bath. Well, let's just say, it quickly moved its way up top to where the showerhead is and where all the treasured bath products aka my bath products are kept! At first I was using it as a bubble bath but I wasn't using very much product because I didn't want to "waste" it since the bottle … [Read more...]
